Steven Wilson Hand. Cannot. Erase.
Hand. Cannot. Erase. shows the plethora of Wilson's music styles. It blends perfectly a 70s progressive aspect with an atmospheric modern pop rock element. It may not be Wilson's best work to date, but this release strengthens even more his position as a successful solo artist. Recommendations: "Home Invasion", "Hand Cannot Erase", "Perfect Life", "Happy Returns", "3 Years Older"
The Decemberists What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
This is one of those albums where no matter how accessible and delicate the music is, lyrics manage to top it. Sincere, geniuine and suitable for different moods and occasions. It is an album which is constructed around the idea of many great songs instead of hit singles (at least personally, I found it difficult to like or get hooked by a single song). Personally I felt that the first half of the album was better than the second one. Recommendations: "Philomena", "Cavalry Captain", "A Beginning Song", "Lake Song", "The Wrong Year", "Easy Come, Easy Go"
The Parlor Mob Cry Wolf
The Mob chooses to approach their latest release in a 'progressive rock' style, something which is most welcomed amongst the fans. It shows inspiration, diversity and desire to be different. Although it starts very strongly, it diminishes in quality as it goes on. "The Day You Were Born" is an epic 8-minute agonising track while "Dead Man" is the most melodic track of the album. "Racing With a Beating Heart" is the catchiest song because of its underlying groove but "Doe Eyed Dear" and "Cry Wolf" did not impressed me personally.
The Parlor Mob What About Frank?
The Mob's first album was recorded and self-released during 2005. The stlye of the songs is much different with what people listened on their latest releases (Dogs, And You Were a Crow). As it is evidenced from this release, Mark Melicia had that howling voice from the early beginning, but it became much better through the years. There are some interesting melodies here, however many the songs needed to be more structured. Mixing and the overall production quality is decent, something which indicated that the band needed a better guidance, something which came along with Roadrunner records two years later. Recommendations: "Strange Way Out",
Joe Bonamassa Different Shades of Blue
UFO No Heavy Petting
A consistent release by UFO with some nice tracks. There is a variety of tempos with different songs to choose from. Recommendations: "Can You Roll Her", "A Fool In Love", "Belladona"
Scorpions Return to Forever
The Scorps have received much criticism for their post '00s discography, something that I would not agree-up until now. Unbreakable was decent, Humanity was surprisingly good I thought. Return To Fover is probably the band's poorest release in their glorious 50 year career. From the first listening you realise that the effort put was minimal in both music and lyrics (they've set a new record for the word 'rock' in a single album). The Germans claim that the material was written between early 1980s up to 2014, but it seems that they've concentrated their best fillers/leftovers and put them in a final album. Recommend
