Blues Pills Lady In Gold
I was not excited with Pills' sophomore album given the number of times I've listened to it. There are plenty of hooky choruses, numerous great grooves and solid rhythms. rElin's voice is probably the band's greatest weapon and the fact that its not over-highlighted makes this another honest and humble release. However, this must be one of the fewest times that I found the well-worked production detrimental to the overall experience and listening of the album. The rawness and power that the debut album had, is absent here. This is probably due to the retreat of the guitars into a more secondary role in order for the keyboards to be more invol
Dave Matthews Band Under The Table And Dreaming
Under The Table and Dreaming is an excellent debut from a bunch of very talented musicians. It is the best album to start exploring DMB and the probably the best indicator/guide towards the band's music style and direction. I found the first half of the album absolutely stunning with lots of energy and positiveness. However, as it progressed it became a bit weary for my tastes. Recommendations: "Ants Marching", "Rhyme & Reason", "Typical Situation", "What Would You Say", "Jimi Thing"
Kadavar (DE) Berlin
Berlin represents the German's most solid album to date. They've kept the heavy and chunky riffs but also added more melodic lines and rhythm. The bass has taken again initiatives and leads in many tracks. Recommendations: "The Old Man", "Last Living Dinosaur", "Pale Blue Eyes", "Spanish Wild Rose"
Kadavar (DE) Abra Kadavar
Kadavar play in a hard rock style with retro and psychedelic elements. The more you hear to Abra Kadavar, the more similarities to Black Sabbath you will find. The songs have that gloomy and dark texture and the riffs are sharp, heavy and loud. However, I felt that the rhythmic sections could have been better as well as the vocals. Overall, its a cohesive result with well-worked production and mixing. I have a positive feeling that at some point I will listen something exciting from them. Recommendations: "Come Back Life", "Dust", "Doomsday Machine"
Zakk Wylde Book of Shadows II
Zakk's voice is perfectly fitted in the sullen and melancholic songs of Book of Shadows II and the emotion that accompanies his guitar solos is worthy of notice. Recommendations: "Lost Prayer", "Sleeping Dogs", "Autumn Changes", "Eyes of Burden"
Red Hot Chili Peppers The Getaway
I found this album to be much more interesting than its predecessor I'm With You. This is not because The Getaway includes great tracks but because the band appears with a different perspective here in terms of the sounds and the band's style. They are not ultimately funky or aggressive, but rather more mature. Klinghoffer starts showing what he can offer to the band, Smith plays some interesting drum patterns and Flea's bass lines are as good as ever. Recommendations: "Dark Necessities", "Go Robot", "Goodbye Angels", "The Getaway", "Encore"
The Struts Everybody Wants
A brilliant, lively and full of energy debut album by the British. The diversity of it was probably the most interesting characteristic I found. At moments they sound as an indie rock act, in others a pop rock one and in some they give the impression of an 80s glam group. Definitely the first half is more solid and ear-catching one than the second. Recommendations: "Roll Up", "Kiss This", "Mary Go Round", "Dirty Sexy Money", "These Times are Changing".
