Volbeat Beyond Hell/Above Heaven
This is another decent album by the Danes who continue the stream of consistent releases. The good balance of rock/metal is kept throughout with melodies being the band's strongest weapon. Recommendations: "Heaven Nor Hell", "Fallen", "A New Day".
Roger Waters Is This The Life We Really Want?
This was the first album I've heard from Waters' solo career and I was amazed by the result. His ability to write prolific lyrics and his taste in music is something that differentiates him from other artists. In terms of the music, I found the guitar parts great and his vocals very decent. Production was also of high quality, however, I believe drum parts could have been worked a bit more both in terms of execution and recording. I would suggest listening to this from beginning to end rather than pick individual tracks. Definitely a contender for album of the year for me. Recommended tracks: "Picture That", "Deja Vu", "The Last Refugee", "Is
Royal Blood How Did We Get So Dark?
How Did We Get So Dark? represents a collection of tracks that individually would stand as very successful b-sides. However, the band plays it very safe here: despite lots of energy and hard riffing put through, compositions lack a bit of inspiration both in terms of music and lyrics. It doesn't grab you by the hair as the debut did. Recommendations: "How Did We Get So Dark?", "Hook, Line & Sinker", "Hole In Your Heart"
Me And That Man Songs of Love and Death
I was not aware of the anti-christian/atheist background of Adam Darski prior to listening to this album since I am not a black metal fan. However, I got impressed by how a guy like him takes an 180 degrees turn and records a country/blues rock album. The content varies from the traditional country lyricism though and is written with lots of gothic and melancholic elements. Darski's soulful baritone brings a dark, mournful and sometimes, desperate feeling to the tracks which only make them even better. Too bad if this turns out to be a one-off project. Recommendations: "On The Road", "Voodoo Queen", "Nightride", "My Church Is Black", "Of Sire
Nickelback Feed the Machine
Feed the Machine may become a cornerstone in Nickelback's career and this depends on whether the band takes the positive aspects of this release and expands them. There were some unusually heavy songs such as the title track and "Coin For the Ferryman" however, "The Betrayal (Act III)" must have raised a lot of eyebrows. It goes without saying that the album contains the usual bland ballads and other indifferent tracks but overall the album is balanced. Recommendations: "Feed The Machine", "Must Be Nice", "For The River", "Coin For the Ferryman"
Imagine Dragons ʎVOLVE
I was aware that Imagine Dragons was a pop rock band with indie and alternative elements, despite the fact that I've never heard any of their earlier releases. I thought of giving this a shot in case there's any song more rockish-than-poppish. Unfortunately, there is no such a case; instead, I've heard a band trying to imitate Coldplay's style and be relevant with the current trend in the radio: cheap synth-pop melodies, uninspired electro-pop sounds, compressed-machine-like drums and that rap-style-vocal singing which a band did some time ago and the radio keeps repeating it. Imagine flagons.
Divine Fits A Thing Called Divine Fits
I found this to be a worth listening album with a blend of alternative and indie rock. Songs are well constructed and its majority is catchy enough. It is also very groovy with the rhythmic section overshadowing the melodic one. Bass lines in specific are very solid and well worked, while synthesisers were appearing every now and then to add diversity. Recommendations: "Would That Not Be Nice", "Like Ice Cream", "Shivers", "Baby Get Worse"
