Product Review “Shady Rays X Series – Blackout Polarized Sunglasses”

I am a true believer in ad placement. I used to work ad placement for my previous company and it is a very important part of a businesses’ success. I recently came across a ad on Facebook for Shady Rays sunglasses. I clicked on the ad to take a look and was very impressed with the product. I reached out to request product to review and feature on the site and let me tell you I am very glad that I did! I am always (and I know I am not alone here) on the hunt for new sunglasses that look good but don’t cost me a mortgage payment. I think I have found them!!!

The Shady Rays X Series – Blackout Polarized Sunglasses are easily one of the most comfortable sunglasses that I have ever worn. They have a real nice sporting looking frame with strong grip made to withstand high speed activity like running, hiking and climbing, water-sports, and more. I am not doing much of that BUT I do have a near 6 year old and I need to be quick when playing outside! These shades are slick looking and get great wrap around coverage so I am not seeing the glasses and then above and below outside the glasses. They fit your face just right and allow you to see without squinting from any angle.

I should also point out that my wife gets not bad but terrible migraines. She got one while we were driving and during this time she needs to block out all sunlight, even closing her eyes don’t help. She threw on these shades while we were driving and she couldn’t get over the relief that she was receiving from the usual pain and discomfort she gets during a typical migraine. She then preceded to wear them and ride out the rest of the migraine and it easily made it much more manageable. This might not be for everyone but I feel like it is worth noting for sure!

These shades comes with HD Polarized black lenses including 100% UV protection, are shatter-resistant and also salt water proof! The last one will be very useful in the pool and ocean! There is also a really kick ass Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty & Free Replacements if Lost or Broken – just pay S+H fee for lost/broken replacements. I mean that is solid. I mean the pricing alone for these are only $45 dollars and they are worth every penny! The X Series are a big hit for sure and I see myself using Shady Rays my new go to for my sunglasses needs!!

CD Review: Volbeat “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies”

“Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies”
Producer: Rob Caggiano
Tracks: 14

Our Score: 3 out of 5 stars

The Danish metal band Volbeat are back with a brand new full length studio album titled “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies”. The album features 14 new tracks that were produced by former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano. “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies” is the groups 5th studio album and the follow up release to the 2010 album “Beyond Hell/Above Heaven”.

I first heard Volbeat when I saw them open for Metallica on the “Death Magnetic” tour. The band had this sound that was part Social Distortion part Godsmack. The bands performance really blew me away and I instantly became a fan. “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies” was an album that I really wanted to like however I think the band has drifted too far from their earlier sound which I loved. Each song on the album seems to feature a mix that is very layered and digital sounding. For me the album listens more like a pop/rock album than a metal album. Songs such as “Lola Montez” and “Cape of Our Hero” are perfect examples of this. Though there was an element of pop on the bands last album however it wasn’t as nearly prevalent.

Don’t get me wrong “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies” is not a bad album per say. However it caught me a little off guard as I was not expecting such a fluffy, pop laced album. After a few listens through there were a few tracks such as “The Nameless One” and “Room 24” which features a guest appearance buy metal legend King Diamond that I could see myself listening to more than once but as a whole I was a little underwhelmed by the album.
