Steven Wilson Hand. Cannot. Erase.
I'm between a 4 and a 4.5 but it's just details that I need to focus on and the final rate rdepends on time. What we have here is an interesting mix, a marrige between Steven Wilson's rproggy and electronic/pop music. The variety this album holds is great, having to show reverything from 70's prog rock to current electronic music. The changes are masterfully rdone, even if it feels a bit weird at times... Conceptually, it's inspiring, musically it's ra bit challenging and Steven Wilson tries new things, even if their number is small. An rexcellent offering, a distinctive release in his discography and a really important one for rthis year. The packaging is superb as well. Check it out, wonderfully crafted. rEDIT: Fuck it, this have aged so well. I'm giving this a 5 for my personal pleasure.

Caligula's Horse In Contact
My first contact with Caligula's Horse leaves no space for wrong impressions. They certainly
belong to that part of the current progressive metal with great musicianship, slick production and
overall extravagance. The problem with most of these bands, is whether or not there's any meat to
be found. For every Haken out there there are hundreds of copy cats with half the shine.
Caligula's Horse is not the case. I've found myself taken aback from the great riffs and themes.
There are many moods explored here, from the Leprous-like Graves with the frantic saxophone, to
the mellow ballad with 'Capulet', admittedly one of my favourite tracks off this. I've learnt to
appreciate Jim Grey's delicate voice from his other band, Arcane, and this time I feel like he
outshines himself, in an album where every player strives to outshine the other. r

Of course, the album's story is characterised by the fair amount of cheese that burdens many prog
albums nowadays. Especially the track 'Inertia and the Writing on the Wall', while containing some
great imagery, leaves the listener wondering, and the possibility of it being completely void of
any specific purpose makes it sound awkward. However, the album is one of the best prog albums
I've heard this year and the modern-prog lover should definitely give it a spin.

Excellent for a debut, some moments burst with emotion. Technicality and great sound. The guests here are all superb. What is to be said is that it's a bit generic at times and needs time to delve into the tracks, mainly because there's too much going on. Last track is excellent and the vocals do it justice. Expect more from these guys.

Really challenging album, yet very interesting. A light on its own, but without the variety I wanted it to be. It may be equally good with Coal. I don't think it can reach Bilateral, but they're different in a manner. Strongly recommended. It must be a 4, but I'll let time decide.rEdit: time did its job just fine and gave this album a 4. Who am I to disagree?

Why it's Good: Mastodon trace the best characteristics of each album (except of, maybe, Remission)
and blend them all together. Combined with a great theme, inspired by life's bitter taste, the
music actually manages to touch a sensitive chord, without sacrificing one bit of modern Mastodon

Where it lacks: apart from awkward track order and the unusual abrupt ending of a number of songs,
this really has nothing to envy from past Mastodon albums. And while some may have a problem with
the lyrics, I find them to be on the same level as before: you loved them on previous offenigs?
you'll love them again this time.

This album is so dark and raw at times. The songs are very well crafted, with excellent cohesion and build ups. There is this sense of continuity and totality, that give it the character of a theme album, rather than a compilation of songs thrown together. The compositions focus on the songs and avoid noodling and unnecessary features. Strong album, especially for a debut. Hope this guys continue in this path.

This small collection of songs creates an indipendent and satisfying entity that shows Steven Wilson's ability to write moody songs (like the Postcard-y Happiness III, the mellow Year of Plague and the noir Sunday Rain Sets In) but also more agressive tunes, like the magnum opus My Book of Regrets, that finds SW rearranging some of his ideas into something new and beautiful. Vermillioncore is a jazzy intrumental with psychedelic influences and is bound to make the listener move his body in the rhythm. The EP closes with a new version of Don't Hate Me, where SW sings a duet with Ninet Tayeb, who we first listened on Hand.Cannot.Erase. This addition to Steven Wilson's catalogue is certainly a worthy one and works perfectly as a small treat to make the waiting for his next offering a little more bearable.

Blackfield Blackfield V
Why it's good: A much needed revival for the band after two mediocre and ultimately disappointing
releases. Steven Wilson's unexpected return is felt as he is now as present as he used to be. The
album's theme is about ''the ocean and the circle of life''. The first half might seem a bit
lukewarm, but from 'October' onwards it is the Blackfield we always loved. Songs like the latter,
'Sorrys', 'Life is an Ocean' and 'From 44 to 48' are Blackfield classics and others are
experimentations, such as 'Lonely Soul' that doesn't quite fit the style, but is definitely a
noteworthy addition.

Where it lacks: The dim and sad tone of Blackfield is not that present. Songs tend to be mellower
and happier, with more string arrangements than before. The music fits the album cover's colours
perfectly. It's warmer and brighter, missing the x factor the band is known for. The fillers are
obvious and there's also 'Undercover Heart', whith a vocal delivery I personally detest. Add some
quirky lyrics and you have the cons of 'Blackfield V'.

David Maxim Micic is a renowned musician in the djent genre. His discography has been proven to be one of the most solid and well executed among his fellow players. He's creative, distinctive, memorable, jazzy and folky. His first EP shows his capabilities, though do not deliver as much as Bilo 2.0 and 3.0. That being said, his debut work is by no means a bad or even a ''just-good'' piece of art, it's damn fine music. Well done DMM. Keep doing whatever the heck you're doing!

While the musicianship is excellent and the melodies are pretty well written, I believe the singer doesn't fit quite much in the whole project. His voice reminds a bit too much of Hetfield and that is a mismatch for the whole Riverside sound they want to achieve. Other than that, it's a very enjoyable album!

A very chill album, where JT return to form. Relaxing tracks, interesting guitar work and Ian's well known flute, creating an -if not satisfying- adequate album. Tracks like Budhapest, Farm on the Freeway and Said She Was A Dancer stake out for being really good, and Steel Monkey also catches our attention for all the wrong reasons. Yet, JT, on their 16th album, show they still have some aces up their sleeve.

Motorpsycho The Tower
Motorpsycho have managed to pull through even with the major line-up changes. The Tower
is a massive album with great melodies and ideas, that takes its time to discover each and every
corner in the room before closing the door behind. After their phenomenal Here Be Monsters, they
return to a more signature sound and jam furiously in what can be one of the most satisfying
albums of the year, while also paying homage to their heroes and influences. Don't forget that the
album is complimented by one of the best looking album covers of 2017. r

Where it lacks: The sheer amount of its time (75 minutes) makes it clear that no matter how
enjoyable it is, it can be very demanding. It never gets actually tiring or boring, but there is a
bunch of moments where the fat could be trimmed down. For instance, A Pacific Sonata, clocking at
around 15', is neither that varied, nor much adventurous to justify the duration. The album is
really talkative and I bet the fans are anything but disappointed, but hopefully their next album
will be more channeled.Don't get me wrong though, this is definitely not an album to avoid.

The sense of continuity, cohesion and unity is once again back. Opeth made a new album, with a concept, not a collection of tunes, like PC. The production is mediocre and damp, but the lower sound makes the album sound more serious and heavy. Because it is heavy, and the production is not the only factor that contributes to it. Songs like The Wilde Flowers, Chrysalis and Strange Brew are well written and The Seven Sojourn gives a very warm and moody (ha!) vibe. Songs like Will O' The Wisp, A Fleeting Glance and Era don't click, and I wouldn't mind if they were missing. About the rest of the songs, Persephone I & II work as excellent bookends, and Sorceress II is the best of the two ballads, with interesting sound effects. It's a new face, again, for Opeth, darker than PC and heavier than Heritage. Is it worth it? Only time can tell for sure, but for now it's a very entertaining album that has all the elements new Opeth have to show and a fan could want.

After a serious health problem, PoS's mastermind Daniel G. has returned. Before starting working officially on their new material, they create a nice copilation of old songs (including two 'new' ones), that works pretty good as a warm up. They cover previous material, softening their sound and adding a nice jazzy and bluesy vibe, crafting a hearty release that keeps us busy until their next studio album.

Honestly guys, I just can get into this. Musically it's indeed excellent a 4.5/5. I'd much prefer
this in an instrumental version. But it's the other astpects of this I can't embrace. The
hyperbbolic approach in style is too much for me, thematically (I won't say lyrically, I don't
understand a word) it's a bit... odd? Vampires and French revolution, and Medieval Times and
Renaissance... The band's view on them is so fairytale-ish that I can't take them seriously. Heck,
I can't take Epica seriously most of the times now, and I believe these fellas have more cheese in
their music. Vocals are tolerable I guess, I will attribute my suspension in the fact that I'm not
familiar with the language. rHowever, in all honesty, I'd give this a 3, maybe a 3.5 for the
excellent music.

Could never digest the sound of this album. Consider it to be seriously overhyped and I actually only like the t/t and Matte Kudasai. The vocals are quite interesting as well, really theatrical, but that's just that. Of the least favourites off their discog.

Before I conclude to a 3, I want to be fair. I am a bit disappointed. This could have been rexcellent, if only. Floor's vocal abilities are known. Why doesn't she uses them? We have a rreally long disc here, 1h and 18m. If some songs were dismissed, this could have been much rtighter. Of course there are awsome parts, as the opener (much power metal stuff in this) rand the last two songs. On the one hand, the opus in the end is the highlight, on the other rhand, I can't stop thinking how much better it could have been, if some of the narrating was romitted. I find the animal sounds pretty cool, but this is just a shadow of the majestic rthing it COULD HAVE BEEN! Still, maybe it's a grower. Till another opinion surfaces...3.5.
Opeth Pale Communion
Okay, I am not sure whether this is better than Heritagte or not. I enjoy it a lot but I believe Heritage was more diverse than this one. Maybe 5 listens are not yet enough (they were a little bit hasty tbh). It's definately the most different thing they've ever composed and it's definately not a bad album. But, it lacks the sense of coherence and unity, and I find there are some fillers.

Utterly disappointed. Thought this was going to be better than their previous Hold Your Fire.
Instead, the band creates a bland, ''happy go lucky'' lp, with little to offer. The only songs I
found tolerable were Scars and Available Light, maybe even The Pass. These three, with the help of
some tremendous bass lines, save this album from falling into mediocrity.

David Maxim Micic Who Bit the Moon
Why it's good: well, for the most part, it really isn't. Sure, it has its moments and also
includes the phenomenal title track, but other than that, it's a shame that in 2017 David Maxim
Micic fails to put his message across.

Where it lacks: it seems as if years of brilliance took their toll. DMM has been composing
excellent material since 2011, blending styles and creating his unique identity. However, the Moon
has a sour taste this time. Underdeveloped ideas, unnecessary passages and over-polished sound are
not representative of his talent, so I'm waiting a return to form, whenever he feels like it.
Dream the Electric Sleep Beneath The Dark Wide Sky
Dream Theater The Astonishing
Haven't heard it yet, but I believe people judge too quickly... It's a two hour long album and rpeople complain they can't remember anything... No shit Sherlock... Just give it the time you rwould give to any other record. I;m not saying it's great or anything, I have no idea how it rsounds... Just give it a proper amount of attention...EDIT: The first side has some adventurous songs and some never heard before in a DT album relements. The whole attempt ,though ,suffers from the number of ballads. It loses its power and dynamic. I can see they're trying to make a more song-oriented album, that's also something like a musical, but it's not done properly. The second disc is way worse. The power ballad mode fails to put across ''THE ASTONISHING'' story they aimed for. I'm sorry it's a mediocre album because beneath the mire, may be something astonishing indeed.

I initially gave this a 3, because I had not that much of a problem listening to it.But after a while I realized I couldn't remember anything and I had absolutely no need to relisten to it. I forced myself and then again I had the same feeling of apathy and blundness. Avoid.
