favorite bands
Billy Gibbons And The BFG's The Big Bad Blues
Regardless what Billy Gibbons does, he is a legend. However, The Big Bad Blues is far from his finest work as it consists of mid tempo blues quite similar to ZZ Top but the album ends up being quite boring and feels longer than it actually is.
Monster Magnet ╬ťindfucker
Significantly less spacey and trippy compared to Last Patrol, ?indfucker is a straightforward, high energy affair influenced by the late '60s Detroit rock scene and bands like MC5 and The Stooges. Regardless which side of the band one likes though, this is still a very rewarding listen. Dave can do no wrong.
Amplified Heat Madera
Energetic psychedelic rock with bluesy elements and a jam nature which brings to mind a less guitar oriented version of The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Unfortunately, the songwriting isn't strong and the vocals need work as well.
Satan Cruel Magic
Satan are like Wesley Snipes on Demolition Man; they have been brought out of suspended animation and since then, they kick ass relentlessly. Their brand of heavy metal is furious, catchy and their twin guitar attack quite underrated. In addition, their vocalist's performance is still top notch and adds one more memorable aspect to Satan's music.
Beggars (GR) The Day I Lost My Head
This album represents a major step-up for these guys, as they finally worked on their songwriting and managed to produce a very enjoyable slab of heavy bluesy rock that borders on stoner at times. During its 41 minutes, The Day I Lost My Head features diversity by mixing energetic with mid-tempo songs, plus a slower one as a closer. If they manage to further improve their songwriting, work on their lyrics and write a few good solos, I can definitely see them rivaling most modern heavy rock bands.
Friendship (NO) Ain't No Shame
Joe Bonamassa Different Shades of Blue
As much as I consider this one a very enjoyable listen, I feel that it's one of his weakest releases due to the fact that Joe after a long time had to write an entire album without any covers. As a result, the songwriting is nice but it seems that it's not as mature or developed as it can be considering Joe's talent. Bonamassa's playing is as always excellent but I would love a little less groove and a bit more blues.

  • Thrust! Dude! Ghostbusters is ****ing amazing! I'm writing it up now. I used to collect Upper Deck as well, I have a Jose Canseco rookie card I've had since I was 15 haha. The only cards I collect these days are Jennifer Korbin Benchwarmer cards. Don't judge me!
