    Personnel: Axel Rudi Pell (acoustic guitar); Ferdy Doernberg (keyboards); Mike Terrana (drums, percussion); Jrg Michael (drums).
    For many rock historians, the 1980s officially ended when Nirvana and Pearl Jam were burning up the charts in 1991 and 1992 and major labels started signing alternative rock acts left and right. For some rockers, however, the 1980s never ended--and German guitarist/songwriter Axel Rudi Pell's unwavering commitment to pre-'90s-style metal and hard rock is evident throughout BEST OF AXEL RUDI PELL: ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This 79-minute CD spotlights previously released material from Pell's Johnny Gioeli era; Pell hired Gioeli as his vocalist in 1998, and Gioeli received such a favorable response that Pell was still using him 11 years later in 2009. Although Pell's own songs dominate BEST OF AXEL RUDI PELL, this collection also contains two covers from 2007's DIAMONDS UNLOCKED: Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" and U2's 2000 hit "Beautiful Day," both of which become more hard-rocking in Pell's hands. Although hardly the last word on Pell's solo output of the 1990s and 2000s, BEST OF AXEL RUDI PELL is enthusiastically recommended to casual listeners.
