Inglorious II
Inglorious' second attempt is equally well-worked and energetic as the debut. However, I would say that the band should pay more attention to detail and incorporate some advanced technical characteristics in their music. It might have been wiser if they had combined both albums into one in order to have a more consolidated result. Recommendations: "I Don't Need Your Lovin'", "Black Magic", "High Class Woman", "Read All About It"
Big Big Train The Second Brightest Star
The Second Brightest Star contains some great tracks such as "Skylon" and "The Passing Widow" however, having in mind Grimspound and its immense quality, it is difficult for something to come out so shortly and overshadow it.
Black Country Communion BCCIV
I am rating this with a 3 not because it is not a good result or lacks quality but because I thought I was listening to a Bonamassa album with Glenn Hughes on vocals. It does not have the Black Country Communion identity that I know from 2. Recommendations: "Wanderlust", "The Crow", "Sway"
The War on Drugs A Deeper Understanding
I found A Deeper Understanding to be slightly better than its predecessor. Despite the simplicity in its rhythmic part (loop-like drum beats and basic supportive bass lines), The War On Drugs manage once again to create through subtle and astute melodies a captivating ambiance. This album is full of stupendous sounds and catchy moments which take the band's quality to the next level. Recommendations: "Thinking of a Place", "Holding On", "In Chains", "Pain"
The Ivory Elephant Number 1 Pop Hit
Albeit the title may suggest a softer genre, Number 1 Pop Hit is everything but a pop album. Its mid-tempo and heavy blues character once it is fused with psychedelic touches creates a sound that is as modern as The Black Keys but has its roots as deep as Jimi Hendrix. Delicate melodies are spread like a garniture all over the album with my favorites being in songs such as "Like a Dog" and "Ballad of Wild Bill". I am looking forward listening what these guys can do in future releases and whether they increase the psychedelic element in their music.
Radio Moscow New Beginnings
Moscow's latest release is furious: you never realize when it begins and when it ends. This is probably the thing I was not very impressed with. From the introductory "New Beginning" you sense the energy and the passion but this is detrimental to the overall quality. In addition, not that vocals were the band's strong point, but here are lost in the menace of the drums and the interminable wah-wahs. Recommendations: "Deceiver", "Last To Know"
The Flying Eyes Burning the Season
Although not a fan of stoner rock, I found Burning the Season an enjoyable listen. rHeavy Sabbath-esque grooves all around in a moody atmosphere which is not necessarily dark and pessimistic. Recommendations: "Oh Sister", "Come Round", "Circle of Stone", "Farewell", "Sing Praise"
