The Jeff Healey Band See the Light
Jeff Healey's guitar playing is fiery and soulful as at times he sounds like Alvin Lee while on other ones he brings Stevie Ray Vaughan to my mind. The fact that he plays with the guitar on his lap allows him to play fast but with precision and he is not afraid to opt in for the extra note. Overall, a very enjoyable blues album.

Axel Rudi Pell Knights Call
Anyone who is familiar with Axel Rudi Pell knows what to expect from the veteran axeman by now; hard rock with AOR and neoclassical tendencies that brings to mind a mix between Ritchie Blackmore and Yngwie Malmsteen. However - and even though there is a feeling of deja vu throughout the album - Axel is so talented that once again provides us with a very enjoyable effort that doesn't lack great guitar leads, solid songwriting and an overall epic atmosphere. Of course, it wouldn't be an Axel Rudi Pell LP if there wasn't any fat that could be trimmed but overall, this is a really good release with an albeit limited replay value.

Aura Noir Aura Noire
This is a good LP that has all the elements that Aura Noir are known for but with much more filler than in the past which accounts for 1/4 of the album. Their weakest effort until now.

Gilgamesh Another Fine Tune You've Got Me Into
Relaxing jazz fusion from the Canterbury scene which is quite accessible. The music is led by the electric piano with some tasteful guitar leads which leads to a very pleasant listen especially during nighttime.

McAuley Schenker Group Perfect Timing
Perfect Timing is not exactly a poor album but it's nothing special either which by Michael Schenker's standards is underachievement. For this album, Michael Schenker cooperated with Robin McAuley and the result is average hair metal that lacks the sparks, the hooks, the performance and the songwriting we got to expect from the German axeman.

Eloy Planets
While listening to Planets, one may feel like time has stopped in the '70s for progressive rock. Well, almost because the sound of keyboards give some hints of early '80s, but contrary to other prog bands who changed their sound to fit the '80s with little or great success, Eloy maintained their signature sound and differentiated it only slightly. Compared to earlier LPs, Planets is more energetic, lush and maybe more expansive with "Queen of the Night" having some orchestral elements and "At the Gates of Dawn" being the New Age track of the album. Besides the solid songwriting, the amazing keyboards and the fretless bass ma
