QUEEN V
DEATH OR GLORY
ROYAL NOISE

Straddling the line between hardened rocker and breakout star, the NYC scene vet Queen V still emits the power of her previous works, only this time around there's a whole lot more polish on the 11-track DEATH OR GLORY that makes this disc sound major league. From the arena rock sized arrangements heard on cuts like "Good Enough" to the guest appearances on the album from everyone from six string heroes Vernon Reid and Tom Morello to Lemmy of Motorhead, who lends the gritty backroom groove to the rocking "Wasted", everything on this release is cranked to the maximum threshold for a total rock excursion. Chock full of harmonica ("Revolution Baby"), dynamic guitars ("Survival"), and of course the unrivaled pipes of the Queen herself ("One More Time"), this endeavor debunks the theory that the NYC rock scene is dead and buried.
