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"
Foo Fighters Sonic Highways
It's a decent album but not the highlight of the year. The production was good, the music is good but overall it has less spark and energy than its predecessor. Recommendations: "Something From Nothing", "Congregation", "I Am a River"
Damien Rice My Favourite Faded Fantasy
It took Rice 8 years but he delivered an exceptionally good album. He is one of the top in combining poetic songwriting and melancholic atmosphere with such a quality. Guitar parts are once more sweet and melodic but the orchestric parts on the background take the whole album to another level. Another positive is the fact that My Favourite Faded Fantasy is more consistent (at least in its majority) than 9 and O which makes it even more pleasant to hear. Recommendations: "The Box", "The Greatest Bastard", "It Takes a Lot To Know Man", "My Favourite Faded Fantasy"
Nickelback No Fixed Address
I'm not opposed to No Fixed Address because it has a 'Nickelback' tag name on it. Quite contrary, I listened it with attention to see if they have taken any measures to reduce the negative criticism around their name. Apparently for me, they haven't. From an 'indifferent' status I've gone to the 'critical' one. Although it starts promising with "Million Miles an Hour" and the decent "Edge of a Revolution" my expectations soon began to fade. The generic and radio friendly sound of "What Are You Waiting For", "Believe", "Satellite" left me apathetic, while I skipped "Miss You" and "Sister Sin" for the obvious reasons. "Got Me Runnin' R
Tame Impala Lonerism
Lonerism is the appropriate sequel to the compelling debut Innerspeaker. It keeps the psychedelic state of mind, the retro sound and brilliant musicianship. There are moments of simplicity but great musicianship nonetheless. As STAFF member Hernan so brilliantly said in his review: [...]"It provides a collection of songs that reflect typical lyrical themes, offering a similar view on humanity as their previous releases, one that really empathizes with the experiences of youth. The sexual and social awkwardness, personal insecurities, and the ever wavering concern of what the future holds- Kevin Parker explores all of these s
Editors An End Has A Start
Although there are no dramatical changes in their music (in fact no changes at all), Editors appear more mature and focused in this album. Songs are more melodic and consistency just adds to the overall accessibility in the band. Personally I liked it more than the debut. Recommendations: "Escape The Nest", "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors", "An End Has a Start", "Bones", "Racing Rats"
Foxy Shazam Gonzo
Gonzo caught me by surprise as I was expecting it to follow the sounds of The Church.. but in a more consolidated way. To their credit, they were not afraid to leave the hard/glam rock image and follow their instinct. However, some basic elements lack of substantive quality: production is flat, music is uninspired and there is no apparent groove/rhythm to drive the songs. Out of the nine songs I would pick as best moments: "Have The Fun", "Shoebox", "Brutal Truth"
