Wilco Cousin
Cousin is the first album I listen from Wilco. It is a mellow record presenting a collection of sweet americana melodies, backed up by some warm and delicate vocals. Recommendations: "Levee", "Cousin", "Evicted".r
The Record Company The 4th Album
In their fourth album, The Record Company managed to recapture part of the glamour that their debut album distilled. Driven by the blues and inspired by the American South, The 4th Album does not lack the charm or the delicacy, despite its uninspired title. The trio remains tight and solid and offers its contemporary, blues-based rock in a 'back to the basics' style. With polished sounds and shiny production, I found this fourth attempt to be a better version of the debut album with equally -if not- groovier and soulful tracks. Recommendations: "Talk to Me", "Dance on Mondays", "I Found Heaven (In My Darkest Days)", "Bad Light".
In Flames The Jester Race
In their second LP, the Swedes make a huge improvement in terms of their musical direction and how they want to sound. The music is consistent, with intensive guitar riffs which support the paced tempos laid down by the rhythmic section. Anders' vocals have a raw brutality but in many instances, they lack melody. I found lyrics not to be a particularly strong point here. Recommendations: "The Jester's Dance", "The Jester Race", "Artifacts of the Black Rain".
Savatage Power of the Night
I found Power of The Night to be a solid metal album with good compositions, characterised by consistency. Despite its strong first half, it seemed to me that quality deteriorates as it progresses. Music is mainly influenced by Judas Priest with a pasionate Jon Oliva delivering some seminal vocals. Recommendaitons: "Unusual", "Power of the Night", "Hard For Love", "Fountain of Youth".
The Defiants Drive
The Defiants were created to recapture the 80?s stadium rock magic and capture it they did. The band's third album is full of energy, traditional hard rock riffs and has the AOR stamp all over it. Lovers of the genre will love it for the nostalgia and the pleasant memories that the tracks bring out. Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Bon Jovi arernotable references. Recommendaitons: "Go Big or Go Home", "Against the Grain".
Dokken Dysfunctional
Dysfunctional was recorded at the time when the 80s glam rock scene was fading out and the band was into heavy turbulence. There is a notable change in the music direction and the style, with compositions being average at best. Recommendaitons: "Too High to Fly", "Shadows of Life".
The Arcs Electrophonic Chronic
In contrast to the upbeat alt/indie/garage vibes of The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach's side project The Arcs does not emphasize good-time tunes but rather to vintage R&B/bluesy sounds. Their sophomore release Electrophonic Chronic comes with deep bitterness as it was based on the recordings made between the release of Yours, Dreamily and the death of bandmate Richard Swift. A wide array of tones are displayed vocally, sonically, and instrumentally. The album's strongest moments are concentrated in the first half. Recommendations: "Keep on Dreamin'", "Eyez", "Heaven is a Place".
