Aerosmith Get Your Wings
Aerosmith's second album is slightly better than their debut one. The band unfolds its strengths in the form of grooves and rhythmic parts while trying to sound a bit more heavier than before. Songs such as the classic "Same Old Song and Dance", the overlooked "Pandora's Box" and the underrestimated "Lord of The Thighs" are probably the best tracks here. However, the song that steals the show here is by far "Train Kept A Rollin'", a Yardbirds' cover.
Aerosmith Aerosmith
In their self-titled debut, Aerosmith did not have the sound that make them popular during the 1980s and we all got used to when hearing their popular songs. Instead, they had a pure rock'n'roll sound and in there were moments that blues was their element. From Aerosmith only "Dream On" and "Mama Kin" stood the test of time and it is apparent why. "One Way Street" is another decent track in the album, notwithstanding the heavy influences by The Rolling Stones. Probably the most underrated track in the whole album is "Movin' Out" which has such a great groove, rhythm and with a bit more promotion could definitely become a point of ref
Breaking Benjamin Dark Before Dawn
Knowing that the whole band apart from Benjamin (lead vocals) was replaced, I had approached this album with caution and reservation. At the first couple of listenings I found it decent, but not very impressive. While not being BB's best work to-date, it contains lots of growls, sharp riffs, melodic rhythms and proves that Benjamin Burnley is a very talented musician. There are typical BB songs that will exhilarate mostly the fans of Dear Agony, as Dark Before Dawn continues from the point that the former left it six years ago. Recommendations: "Angels Fall", "Bury Me Alive", "Never Again", "Defeated"
Breaking Benjamin Saturate
Of Monsters and Men Beneath the Skin
Much more focused album and requires some listenings before jumping into conclusions. It does not have the commercial songs that the debut My Head Is An Animal had but still, it does not lack quality. Songs are equally balanced between energetic ones and atmospheric ones. Probably the song arrangement is the weakness of this album as it starts with enthusiastic ones and from the middle of it till the end it may become weary for some. Recommendations: "Empire", "Wolves Without Teeth", "Human", "Winter Sound", "We Sink"
Moreland & Arbuckle 1861
This is a decent album by the Delta blues/country/folk rock trio from Kansas. 1861 contains little gems such as "Diamond Ring" and "Gonna Send Ya Back to Georgia" on which the band will use as a starting point for later albums.
Muse Drones
Drones is a concept album which lyrically conveys political and cospiracy theory themes while having a much heavier sound than the previous adversly criticised 2nd Law. Songs are not dull or of poor quality: most of them have distinctive characteristics but they lack in cohesiveness. For example, "Psycho" having the band's trademark melody and the similarity in the drum pattern, could easily have become a second "Uprising". However a mixture of tedious lyrics and mismanaged refrain, restrain it from becoming so. "Revolt" sees Muse in an average pop-rock mode, while "Aftermath"/"The Globalist"/"Drones" were a poor ending. On
