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".
Leslie West Still Climbing
I was not much impressed with this album. There is no doubt that Leslie is a great guitarist with great technical skills and decent vocal harmonies. The fact that it sounds much heavier than a 'classic' blues record did not bother me at all however, the absence of catchy refrains and melodies did. Recommendations: "Busted, Disgusted or Dead", "Feeling Good"
Goo Goo Dolls Boxes
The reason why I have heard this album is because I have a sympathy for Dizzy Up The Girl, an eminent release by GGD. I have given another chance after 2013's rather poor Magnetic but it appears that the band has entered a poppier mode and its not in mood to exit soon. I despised the electronic effects but most of all the compressed/electro-drums in tracks like "Lucky One", "So Alive". "Prayer In My Pocket" sounded like modern Bon Jovi while "In Reverse" had a catchy refrain but something in the sound was not quite correct. Recommendations: "Souls In The Machine", "The Pin"
Joe Bonamassa Blues of Desperation
James Girl At The End Of The World
Girl At The End Of The World from Britpop legends James will pass rather unnoticed from this year's playlists. Not because the band from Manchester have changed their style or way of approaching music, but because this latest release lacks of catchy songs. Melodies are sufficient but not memorable, quality is at proper levels and lyrics are decent. Recommendations: "To My Surprise", "Dear John", "Girl At The End of The World"
Them Crooked Vultures Them Crooked Vultures
Despite the interesting line-up (Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, John Paul Jones) the result did not match the expectations for me. The strongest attribute of this album is in my opinion the lyrics -intriguing, zestful, meaningful. There is also groove and rhythm but the absence of catchy refrains and mind-blowing melodies was apparent. I also believe that song arrangement could have been better. Recommendations: "Gunman", "Scumbag Blues", "Elephants", "Reptiles"
