KrokusHoodoo (Sony Music)
Swiss headhunters unleash their major-label reunion in fine fettle (drummer Freddy Steady no relation to Austin stick pony Freddie "Steady" Krc), Hoodoo looser "Drive It In" buzzing Cult-like as nasaled by Krokus croak Marc Storace in high 1980s form. Once "Born to Be Wild" dials up third, "Rock'n'Roll Handshake" clangs shut on Clinton-era AC/DC, which remains the three-decades point ("In My Blood"). Chris von Rohr and Fernando von Arb refry "Screaming in the Night" on "Ride Into the Sun."
