The Aristocrats Tres Caballeros
There was no doubt that Tres Caballeros was going to be a great album. Equally explosive as the previous two releases, extremely solid compositions with lots of imagination in an ocean of rhythm and a great variety of time-signature changes. Recommendations: "Smuggler's Corridor", "Texas Crazypants", "Stupid 7", "The Kentucky Meat Shower"
The Winery Dogs Hot Streak
There was no doubt that this trio would return with another solid record. Portnoy, Sheehan and Kotzen deliver very strong performances in Hot Streak as it was expected. The band broadens its music horizons and takes its chances with a variety of styles in a mission to grow both musically and in status. Where the self-titled debut was a pure classic rock one, Hot Streak adds modern elements to the mixture. The diversity in the songs indicates just that: from the powerfull opening of "Oblivion" and the 80s-style slow burning headbanger of "Captain Love" to the acoustic harmony of "Fire" and from there to the humble ballad "Thi
Clutch Psychic Warfare
Fallon has his momentum in both lyrics and performance and what has started so blisteringly with Earth Rocker, continues with the same menace in Psychic Warfare. This one has many similarities with its predecessor, but it requires a couple of listenings before it starts growing on you. From the ferocious opening of "X-Ray Visions" to the closing melodiousness of the "Regulator"-like "Son of Virgina", there is plenty of power, riffing and masculinity. If we were searching for an excuse to substitute Earth Rocker from our playlist, this excuse is now called Psychic Warfare. Recommendations: "X-Ray Visions", "
Editors In Dream
In Dream contains a lot of surprises. Guitars are nearly nowhere and in replacement keyboards step up. These make the sound more electronic and poppier ("Life Is a Fear", "Our Love") , combining modern electronica with the '80s synthpop. The other half of the album contains a lot of atmospheric moments ("No Harm", "At All Cost", "Salvation"), something that Tom Smith manages excellently with his baritone voice and his falsetto effectiveness. I was not enthused with In Dream probably because I was awaiting for another Weight of Your Love. But looking it from my objective angle, In Dream is a great experiment
Big Wreck Ghosts
Ghosts is one of the most attractive albums that I have heard for a while. It's simplicity is sandwiched between the attention to details and the excellent producution, elements that are rarely found in balance. What makes it more interesting though, is the great diversity found in its songs: at times they are prog ("A Place To Call Home", "Still Here"), at others they are classic a la Zeppelin ("Hey Mama") but they keep a modern rock sound at all costs. In moments you may think that you are listening to Foo Fighters ("Come What I May") and at others Blackstone Cherry ("Friends"), everything in a Chris Cornell vocal spell. However, e
Bon Jovi Burning Bridges
Burning Bridges is a collection of finished, unfinished and some new songs as Bon Jovi have stated in an interview. Listening to it, a hardcore fan may ascertain in a rather easy way from which album these dropout songs come from - Lost Highway and What About Now. Lead single "We Don't Run" is as expected an average radio-friendly rocker, similar to "Because We Can". Overall, the band has put their thoughts and ideas into a context and deliver a cohesive yet irrelevant album (at least to the hardcore fans). There are a handful of ballads as you would expect ("Blind Love", "Who Would You Die For", "Fingerprints") but
Tame Impala Currents
Kevin Parker returns in a different style from the one adopted in Impala's two previous releases. In Currents, all songs are layered on a silk veil of synthesizers and guitars have a secondary role. Most of the drum parts sound compressed, while the vocals in their majority are distorted. The irresistible melody of "Let It Happen", the comprehensive "The Less I Know The Better" and the trio of "Eventually"/"Cause I'm a Man"/"Yes I'm Changing" are the album's finest moments in my opinion. The sallow "Love/Paranoia" and the discursive narrative of "Past Life" are the band's worst attempts not only in Currents, but throughout t
