I can’t get Project Driver off of my turntable right now, side one is almost perfect. This is one of those records that a metal fan dreams up in his/her sleep, wakes up, and still has that incredible endorphin rush, knows the songs were incredible, but somehow can’t remember or put their finger on what they just heard. It’s the B movie that is more fun than the A movie.
Let’s hope Tony Macalpine gets better soon.
