Numenor Chronicles from the Realms Beyond
Interesting blend of melodic black and power metal with a strong epic flavor. The guitarwork is excellent and when this one clicks, it slays. Unfortunately, the black metal parts are somewhat trite and the harsh vocals have no character. However, when these guys are using the black metal elements just as a supplement to the power metal stuff, the contrast works greatly.

Van Morrison and The Chieftains Irish Heartbeat
The fact that Van Morrison can do no wrong is well documented throughout the years and what remains each time is to experience what this genius has to offer. Irish Heartbeat is the outcome of Van's collaboration with The Chieftains, a band which has transported successfully so many listeners to green landscapes and this LP is no exception. With the exception of two tracks, the album consists mainly of traditional Irish classics which are very accessible, and Van's vocals are on the forefront.

Yoke Shire Awakening Celtic Spirits
The hardest thing for me when it comes to celtic folk is to make it sound sincere. Listening to Awakening Celtic Spirits, I imagine myself in an Irish pub or the countryside and this is the album's biggest achievement.

Professor Black I am the Rock
This is probably a homage and a tribute to one of the greatest bands of the planet, and as such I salute Professor Black. In addition, Professor Black has managed to recreate the Motorhead sound as successfully as possible, which is also something that members of other bands out there would give their left ball (or both of them) for. Now, even though this is a fairly enjoyable listen, I can't see myself jamming it often and it also proves what an amazing vocalist Lemmy was for this style of music, as the weakest point on this album is easily the vocals.
