Madrugada Grit
Grit is divided into two types of songs: the energetic ones that pour adrenaline all around and the experimental ballads. There is a fine balance between perspiration and inspiration and personally I found this better than Nightly Disease as it contains some landmark songs. Recommendations: 'Majesty', 'Got You - Love's Institution', 'Madrugada', 'Blood Shot', 'I Don't Fit'
Rival Sons Feral Roots
Feral Roots is the most mature album of Rival Sons to date. It has not been recorded to be radio-friendly or attract new audiences. It has depth and lacks fancy hooks. It is spontaneous as if it was recorded during a fortnight. Recommendations: 'Shooting Stars', 'Look Away', 'Sugar On The Bone', 'End of Forever'r
Big Big Train Gathering Speed
Despite being a concept album with its thematology concentrated on the Battle of Britain and the music having traditional prog rock elements (12-string acoustic guitars & melontrons), I found the end result of Gathering Speed flat and uninspiring. Recommendation: "Powder Monkey"
Joe Bonamassa Redemption
Dream Theater Distance Over Time
With Distance Over Time Dream Theater come back into form. Energy and heaviness are the dominant characteristics that compile a solid collection of prog metal tracks. I believe it is Mike Mangini's best moment in his 8-year spell with the band. Recommendations: "Fall Into The Light", "Pale Blue Dot", "Barstool Warrior", "Paralyzed"
Big Big Train The Underfall Yard
This is the first album to feature David Longdon on vocals and Nick D'Virgilio on drums. It is the album where BBT find their sound and direction. The point where they will explore their English heritage through untold stories and folk tales. It would not be an exaggeration to state that The Underfall Yard is the point where BBT become a great prog band. Recommendations: "Winchester Diver", "Victorian Brickwork"r
Nick Johnston Remarkably Human
Although I am not a die-hard fan of instrumental albums, Remarkably Human is a stellar album. It is captivating from the first note until the last and in its entirety is a fine piece of coherent music. Johhnston manages to keep a fine balance between technical solos and simple guitar melodies which along with the keyboard parts highlight his remarkable composition skills. This needs to be listened from end to end.
