Bon Jovi Burning Bridges
Burning Bridges is a collection of finished, unfinished and some new songs as Bon Jovi have stated in an interview. Listening to it, a hardcore fan may ascertain in a rather easy way from which album these dropout songs come from - Lost Highway and What About Now. Lead single "We Don't Run" is as expected an average radio-friendly rocker, similar to "Because We Can". Overall, the band has put their thoughts and ideas into a context and deliver a cohesive yet irrelevant album (at least to the hardcore fans). There are a handful of ballads as you would expect ("Blind Love", "Who Would You Die For", "Fingerprints") but
Tame Impala Currents
Kevin Parker returns in a different style from the one adopted in Impala's two previous releases. In Currents, all songs are layered on a silk veil of synthesizers and guitars have a secondary role. Most of the drum parts sound compressed, while the vocals in their majority are distorted. The irresistible melody of "Let It Happen", the comprehensive "The Less I Know The Better" and the trio of "Eventually"/"Cause I'm a Man"/"Yes I'm Changing" are the album's finest moments in my opinion. The sallow "Love/Paranoia" and the discursive narrative of "Past Life" are the band's worst attempts not only in Currents, but throughout t
Spiritual Beggars Earth Blues
Beggars' second album with Apollo behind the vocals is an absolute stunner. It is less heavier and more inclined into retro/vintage rock paths. Earth Blues contains some of ?mott's most comprehensive guitar performances ("Sweet Magic Pain", "Road to Madness") while Wiberg's interchanges between piano and organ are simply compelling ("One Man's Curse", "Kingmaker"). The sound is heavily influenced by 70s classic bands such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and someone could argue that this is the style that SB should adopt in future recordings. Recommendations: "Wise As a Serpent", "Turn The Tide", "Hello Sorrow", "Too Old To
Spiritual Beggars Return To Zero
The introduction of Apollo behind the microphone gives a new dynamic to the band. His powerful and engaging voice in combination with Amott's sharp riffs create a solid sound for Spiritual Beggars. The album starts with some heavy yet engaging riffs ("Lost In Yesterday", "The Chaos of Rebirth"), however it takes a hard rock twist. "Star Born" is the shorter song in length but is one of the catchiest in the album. "Spirit of The Wind" is the atmospheric song of the record sandwiched from two explosive and energetic rockers ("Coming Home" and "We are Free"). "The Road Less Travelled" is probably the weakest moment and thankfully is coming at th
Blackberry Smoke Holding All The Roses
The most blatant difference between Holding All The Roses and its predecessor, is the overall production. All instruments sound much more polished and crispier, contributing this way to the overall southern feel in a more effective way. In terms of songs, Blackberry Smoke deliver once again a noticeable, high quality album. The underlying tone is that of rock n roll ("Let Me Help You Find The Door", "Living The Song", "Rock and Roll Again", "Payback's a Bitch", "Fire In The Whole") blended together with sweet country vibes ("Too High") and some soothing southern melodies ("No Way Back To Eden"). Whether this album is better than
Aerosmith Toys in the Attic
Aerosmith's third album contains a balanced mixture of the sounds the band had in its first two releases. "Uncle Salty" is a decent rock'n'roll track that could be easily included in Aerosmith, the band's debut. "Adam's Apple" has a rhythmic, Stones-like feel and "You See Me Crying" showcases the first attempt of writng ballads. Evidently, highlight songs here is the groovy "Walk This Way" and the epic "Sweet Emotion". Toys In The Attic is in my opinion, not one of Aerosmith's greatest albums but definitely on of the most important ones. Tyler and Perry discover their strengths while Hamilton and Kramer are proving that they
Aerosmith Get Your Wings
Aerosmith's second album is slightly better than their debut one. The band unfolds its strengths in the form of grooves and rhythmic parts while trying to sound a bit more heavier than before. Songs such as the classic "Same Old Song and Dance", the overlooked "Pandora's Box" and the underrestimated "Lord of The Thighs" are probably the best tracks here. However, the song that steals the show here is by far "Train Kept A Rollin'", a Yardbirds' cover.
