Black Sabbath Paranoid
Recorded in the same year, Sabbath's sophomore album is equally heavy and adventurous as the debut. A pure classic, an album that made Sabbath the heaviest act of its days, with four guys becoming legends. Ozzy's vocals are improved ("Electric Funeral", "Paranoid"), Ward's drumming has become more diverse ("War Pigs", "Rat Salad"), Butler's lyrics continue to be excellent ("Hand of Doom") and Iommi continuous to contribute onerous riffs ("Iron Man", "Fairies Wear Boots")
HammerFall Crimson Thunder
Probably one of the band's weakest albums. I found the production, mixing and sound excellent, but unfortunately I cannot say the same for the quality of the songs. There are some nice tracks like "Riders of The Storm", "Hearts on Fire", "Angel of Mercy"
Sabaton Heroes
Decent but not exciting, especially for older battalion-heads. Those days you had no ballads: the closer you could get to one was "Purple Heart". "The Ballad of Bull" is not bad but It just doesn't suits them. "Inmate 4859" has that heavy, slow, powerfull riff of "Rise of Evil" while the folkish "To Hell and Back" was a pleasant hearing. Lastly, "Soldier of 3 Armies" has that menace and intensity that will keep you devoted and wait for just another release
Tame Impala Innerspeaker
This album goes down as a nostalgic tribute to the late 60s psychedelia. Heavily influenced by The Beatles, the Aussies' debut has a vintage sound and a lot a simplicity both musically and lyrically. Kevin Parker is brilliant young lad with lots of talent and he guides the band steadily to success and recognition. Recommendations: "It's Not Meant To Be", "Desire Be, Desire Go", "Alter Ego", "Solitude Is a Bliss", "The Bold Arrow of Time"r
Uriah Heep Into the Wild
The veterans record another good album during the 00s. There are some hard riffs and some nice choruses here but nothing spectacular. Still, this is much better than all of their 80s releases. Recommendations: "Nail On The Head", "I Can See You", "Trail of Diamonds", "Southern Star".
Jay Jesse Johnson Play That Damn Guitar
Jay's style follows a ZZ Top approach to songs: fast and groovy with more emphasis on the music rather than vocals. Granted, Jesse Johnson does not have the sweet, melodic voice that a lot of his peers possess and it doesn't need a specific song to understand this. The album is divided in mainly two types of songs: blues and hard rock. "Dream Away", "Play That Damned Guitar" and "Rattlesnake Stomp" are probably the highlights of this LP. rHowever, there are some obvious drawbacks that you cannot easily ignore: there is an extensive and needless riffing at various occasions and production/mixing was very average.
Blues Pills Blues Pills
Having heard their two EP's, I was expecting Blues Pills to release a decent album that at the best case scenario would be interesting. However, this debut went beyond my expectations. Above all, Nuclear Blast did a very good job with the production. It had carved very skillfully the band's raw sound without lifting it's psych/bluesy attitude thus keeping the foundations untouched. This is not a flashy mainstream album, but an LP with character. Look at that album sleeve; full of late 60s psychedelic innocence and simplicity. And the content matches exactly that cover work. Song ordering was also excellent. It started with such an intensity,

  • danielcardoso I'm feeling doubtful too. I mean, And You Were a Crow was fantastic, and Dogs was alright, even if I didn't enjoy it as much as the debut. I don't know if they can do it again, but I think it'll be some great stuff, I definitely hope so ;)

  • danielcardoso Are you psyched about Parlor Mob's next album?

  • danielcardoso Hey Antonius, how are you doin'? I finally checked out that Temperance Movement band you once reccomended me. It's some very awesome stuff, I appreciate you mentioning it to me. I also checked out that Radio Moscow album you reviewed and it's pretty cool too. I think that you'd enjoy listening to a band called California Breed. Based on your taste, you're bound to enjoy it. If you do listen to it, let me know what you think. Cheers.
