Everclear So Much For The Afterglow
At the point in time where everyone thought that this band has finally settled it style something in between of grunge and punk rock, comes So Much For The Afterglow to turn things upside down. Alexakis is lured towards a new music direction, that of alternative rock, which starts gaining ground during the late 90s. The transition is difficult for die hard fans to accept. Listen for example "So Much For The Afterglow" or "Amphetamine" which show a band so mature that is ready to excel in everything but alternative rock. Then on the other hand you listen to songs such as "Sunflowers", "Father of Mine", "Why I Don't Believe In God" and
Everclear Sparkle And Fade
There is a notable improvement in Everclear since their debut World of Noise two years ago. The energy is still here but in a more structured way. Alexakis still uses his personal experiences in the majority of the lyrics, but his improved vocals is a notable fact. There is more rhythm in the melodies, hence the guitar parts are more meaningful this time. The introduction of Eklund on drums has brought a new dynamic and has helped in his way to keep a diabolic balance between grunge and punk. Recommendations: "Electra Made Me Blind", "You Make Me Feel Like a Whore", "Santa Monica", "Heroin Girl", "Strawberry"
Everclear World Of Noise
Raw and premature, grunge rock from Everclear with Alexakis desparately trying to find his voice in front of the microphone. The band is at an exploratory phase, trying to establish their style. Production is very pour, lyrics and music are below average. Montoya's diverse bass playing was the only positive I've heard here. Recommendations: "Sick and Tired", "Pennsylvania Is..", "Invinsible"
Altaria Divinity
Notable improvement since the debut album one year before. Riffs are more solid and songs are in their majority catchier. Still, Divinity cannot get recognition because of the plethora of similar power metal albums. Recommendations: "Unchain The Rain", "Divine", "Stain on The Switcholade"
Altaria Invitation
Invitation is a decent power metal album which possess a common characteristic among the power metal genre: it starts with some decent songs, but it continues on the same levels until the end, never reaching a climax. Riffs aplenty, mediocre vocals while very few songs are catchy. Recommendations: "Fire & Ice", "Unicorn", "History of Times To Come"
UFO Lights Out
UFO are probably at their finest hour here. Schenker delivers some delicate and versatile riffs here which depict his top class status. Its not only the catchy and prevailing chorus of "Lights Out" that will get your attention, as most of the listeners will agree. The intoxicated melody of "Love to Love" and the Eastern/Camel-ish solo of "Alone Again Or" will surely get your attention while the rigid "Electric Phase" adds the heaviness that was missing from "Getting Ready" and "Too Hot To Handle".
Steven Wilson Hand. Cannot. Erase.
Hand. Cannot. Erase. shows the plethora of Wilson's music styles. It blends perfectly a 70s progressive aspect with an atmospheric modern pop rock element. It may not be Wilson's best work to date, but this release strengthens even more his position as a successful solo artist. Recommendations: "Home Invasion", "Hand Cannot Erase", "Perfect Life", "Happy Returns", "3 Years Older"
