The Answer Solas
The Answer was a band that caught me by surprise last year with their album Raise a Little Hell: powerfull riffing, energetic attitude, delicate melodies. I was eagerly waiting for this year's album to verify my allegiance. Although through the dynamic and atmospheric pre-release tracks "Solas" and "Beautiful World" I thought that something big was coming from the Northern Irish act, the end result was a peculiar landing to new sounds and style. As the band members have admitted in many interviews, the various family issues some of them experienced the last year, had a major role in this. After the lapse of the aforementioned tracks
Bon Jovi This House Is Not for Sale
It appears that the mainstream/pop-rock style is the new way forward for one of the finest glam acts of the 1980's. Hell, I've even enjoyed the 'softer' rock albums such as Crush and Have a Nice Day. I've found them honest, accessible and passionate. But I cannot accept what is coming out from them since 2013. It was evident from the first moment that the impact from Sambora's leave was going to be massive and instead of weighing every guitar note and melody very carefully, Jon releases whatever comes into his head. The album starts rather dynamically with the energetics "House Not For Sale" and "Living With The Ghost", but
Kings of Leon Walls
I found Kings of Leon refreshed in Walls. The energy and positiveness put in songs has created a very good album in my opinion. "Reverend" is mistakenly placed in a quartet of explosive tracks and while "Over" closes the first half in an engaging manner, the second half is a more mellow one but still interesting. I am also a supporter of the notion that "WALLS" is probably the band's best ballad to date. Recommendations: "WALLS", "Find Me", "Waste a Moment", "Muchacho"
Kings of Leon Mechanical Bull
Mechanical Bull did not reach the levels it was supposed to. Far from that, it has managed to make fans take a sidestep and wonder whether this band actually worths the attention. To me, Mechanical Bull is not a good album, although this does not mean necessarily that its beyond listening. It hasn't got the sad vibe that Come Around Sundown had, but still has energy and more groovy basslines. However, its main drawback is the lack of cohesiveness. Recommendations: "Don't Matter", "Family Tree", "Temple"
Crobot Welcome To Fat City
Without any change in their music style and direction, Crobot's newest release is equally dynamic, electrifying and possibly a bit heavier than the previous Something Supernatural. I have read a lot of reviews about the grooviness in this one, but compared to Something Supernatural, I find such comment a bit exaggerated. Welcome To Fat City is definitely heavier, better worked and has far more polished sounds and production than its predecessor. However, its not as impetuous and straightforward as Something Supernatural. Recommendations: "Not For Sale", "Right Between The Eyes", "Blood On The Snow", "Welcom
The Record Company Give It Back To You
The Americans left me a very good impression with their debut album. A three-piece blues rock band with lots of melody in their songs. I love bands that drum and bass give set the groove and The Record Company is definitely one of them. Although the rhythmic part was outstanding, I can't say the same about the melodic one. Lap steel guitar was a very good addition in the mix, however, recording the majority of the songs with it didn't sound amusing to me. Production is excellent throughout. I hope they continue with the same quality. Recommendations: "Off The Ground", "Rita Mae Young", "Give It Back to You"
Gov't Mule The Tel-Star Sessions
The album consists of of unreleased material recorded by Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts during 1994. It is a nice blend of blues and southern rock tracks which were originally intended for Gov't Mule's debut album. Recommendations: "Mother Earth", "Just Got Paid", "Mr. Big", "World of Difference"
