California Breed California Breed
I was not very excited with Breed's album because I am familiar with Black Coutry Communion and comparisons were unavoidable in my head. Although Hughes' voice is robust and fits very nicely to the style of the trio, in the long term it becomes weary. Jason Bonham is a steady, reliable figure behind the drum kit who plays only the necessary without being flashy. Andrew Watt, a newcomer guitarist seems very promising figure but during the album's 50 minutes he raised my eyebrow only in some occasions. Recommendations: "Midnight Oil", "All Falls Down", "Days They Come", "Invinsible"
The Treatment Running With The Dogs
The Treatment is a hard rock/AOR band with some good characteristics. They are dynamic, balanced and carry on a positive attitude. They deliver some very nice songs such as "Emergency", "Running With The Dogs", "Don't Get Mad Get Evil" which set out the band's sound and style. Objectively speaking however, the English quintet is another addition to the scene that I believe will go unnoticed. They do not possess -at least at the moment- an attribute that will make them distinguish from other bands. Their music is solid, yet is very ordinary i.e. you have listened to this kind of songs before with a similar voice.
Gryphon Red Queen To Gryphon Three
The chess concept of the album (cover, songs etc) was great and I was enthused by it. The folkish/prog style with the unusual medieval sound and instrumentation was also excellent as it gave the album a character and focus. I did not enjoy the fact that I could not distinguish easily the point which a song starts and ends. Maybe tracks should be divided a bit further. However, this does not make the album boring but instead very easy going, something that I rarely experience with instrumental albums. Recommendations: "Second Spasm", "Lament"
Radio Moscow The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz
Probably the weakest album in Moscow's discography. Its not that it deviates from the usual blues/acid/psych rock but rather because it does not contain so many top level songs as the other releases. Recommendations: "Speed Freak", "Creepin", "Misleading"
Editors The Weight of Your Love
This is the most complete work of the Englishmen to date. They move away from the electronica sounds that ruled the previous album and finally establish a more consistent sound. Tom Smith sounds better than ever with his baritone voice overruling most of the songs. Tempo is slower in contrast to previous releases. This allows more emphasis to be placed on the music and the lyrics and the end result is great. Recommendations: "The Weight", "Sugar", "A Ton of Love", "Two Hearted Spider"
Editors In This Light and On This Evening
There are some nice moments in Editors' third release, but surely are not convincing. It is the wrong album to start listening to this band, as it is heavily influenced by electronic & synth sounds, something that was done in a much lesser degree in their previous albums. Recommendations: "Bricks and Mortar", "Papillon", "You Don't Know Love"
AC/DC Rock or Bust
Typical rock n roll-ish AC/DC album. The positive is that they are all nice tracks, however, it becomes monotonous after a couple of listenings. The rhythm section is simple in order to avoid experiments with the departure of Malcom and the pattern 4/4 as always. Recommendations: "Rock or Bust", "Rock The Blues Away", "Baptism By Fire", "Rock The House"
