The Record Company Give It Back To You
The Americans left me a very good impression with their debut album. A three-piece blues rock band with lots of melody in their songs. I love bands that drum and bass give set the groove and The Record Company is definitely one of them. Although the rhythmic part was outstanding, I can't say the same about the melodic one. Lap steel guitar was a very good addition in the mix, however, recording the majority of the songs with it didn't sound amusing to me. Production is excellent throughout. I hope they continue with the same quality. Recommendations: "Off The Ground", "Rita Mae Young", "Give It Back to You"
Gov't Mule The Tel-Star Sessions
The album consists of of unreleased material recorded by Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts during 1994. It is a nice blend of blues and southern rock tracks which were originally intended for Gov't Mule's debut album. Recommendations: "Mother Earth", "Just Got Paid", "Mr. Big", "World of Difference"
Rival Sons Hollow Bones
Volbeat Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie
Volbeat are one of those bands who manage so effectively to create catchy riffs and easy-digested melodies, despite the fact they are very predictable in their music. Although [/i]Seal the Deal..[/i] begins strongly with a couple of old-school rockers which characterise them, as the album progresses, every once in a while the riffs become lighter and lose their aggression. This seemed to me as an attempt to become more radio friendly ("For Evigt", "Black Rose", "Rebound", "Mary Jane Kelly", "Battleship Chains") rather than lack of creativity. Recommendations: "Seal The Deal", "The Devil's Bleeding Crown", "The Gates of Babylon", "Marie Laveau
Hollywood Vampires Hollywood Vampires
Hollywood Vampires is a collection of classic rock tracks covered by Alice Cooper, Joe Perry & Johnny Depp in a decent and passionate overall performance. There are no ballads here which depicts the band's attitude towards energy and vibrance. The tracklist is not perfect (in terms of songs' popularity) but it definitely contains songs that fit perfectly to Cooper's voice such as "I Got A Line On You", "Cold Turkey" but probably most notably on "Five To One/Break On Through". Personally I was not impressed with "Whole Lotta Love" (appart from the squeaking harmonica) nor the segueing from "Schools Out" to "Another Brick On The Wall",
Dave Matthews Band Crash
Although I was very excited with the debut, Crash seemed to me not an equal sparkling moment. It goes without saying that Crash is equally technically competent, however the songs did not have the same catchiness as in the debut and the majority are mellow ones. Still, there are various great songs here such as "Tripping Billies", "Too Much", "Two Step", "So Much To Say", "#41"
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
