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
Everclear Invisible Stars
After the very soft in sound Welcome To The Drama Club, Everclear return with a decent album after a long time. Invinsible Stars starts strongly with decent tracks such as "Be Careful What You Ask For", "Jackie Robinson" and "Falling In a Good Way", however as it progresses quality is lost in the way.
Everclear Welcome To The Drama Club
Welcome To The Drama Club includes a new line-up of Everclear as Graig Montoya & Greg Eklund leave the band. Apart from the replacement in bass and drums, Alexakis decides to recruit a keyboard player in order to refresh the band's sound. This album is recorded in a complete alt rock mode: no riffs, no heaviness at all. The melodies in the songs are in their majority average, while at moments I found the lyrics interesting. Recommendations: "Shine", "The Drama King", "Taste of Hell"
The Darkness Last of Our Kind
This is the band's fourth album, fifteen years after their mouthwatering debut in 2003. What I liked most about Last of Our Kind was it's guitar content: solid riffs and melodic chords. However, Hawkins' vocal performances which have always been the band's strongest weapon, were very average here. You will not listen the bombastic singing of Permission..., but Hawkins performing carefully inside his comfort zone; choosing very carefully when to step outside of it. Recommendations: "Hammer & Tongs", "Sarah O Sarah", "Barbarian", "Open Fire"
The Darkness Hot Cakes
The band's debut was definitely a very enjoyable album. Personally, I found One Way Ticket quite decent follow-up. However, it was apparent that the third record would be the most critical one; their style had an expiry date. Apart from "Everbody Have a Good Time", "Concrete" and probably "She's Just a Girl Eddie" nothing else seemed worth noting.
The Darkness One Way Ticket To Hell And Back
The Darkness revitalised the rock scene with their debut album Permission To Land. Period. However, their second album attracted a lot of criticism among fans. There are still lots of enjoyable riffs and lyrics, however it is easily understood that the band's formula is disposable. Recommendations: "One Way Ticket", "Bald", "Girlfriend", "Hazel Eyes"
