7 Miles To Pittsburgh ~ Revolution On Hold

7 miles to pittsburgh

 

Starting off with a great STRONG guitar riff with floating organ in the background really starts this album off right. The vocals come in strong as well. I would sort of put this as Guns N Roses with a little bit of traffic thrown in as a comparison, but, there is no comparison. This band really rocks. “I Feel Your Pain” starts off with that beautiful organ sound again, then goes off into a ballad…well, a Guns N Roses type of ballad anyway. The whole album is strong & is highly recommended by the Music Guru. I give this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. This band’s 2 album is awesome & so is the band from the Netherlands.

Gregg Rolie ~Sonic Ranch

Gregg Rolie

 

You may not know the name, but, you definitely know the voice. This man was the lead singer for Santana & Journey, prior to Steve Perry. This man knows how to sing. This album IS Rock & Roll! Gregg also brings in some of his friends including Neal Schon, Steve Lukather, Dave Amato & Michael Shrieve & a bunch of other musicians who know how to work together to make a sound. This is that sound. Listen to this, you’ll love it! I give this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. Go out and buy this album!

Gentle Giant ~Unburied Treasure Sampler

This sampler of music from Gentle Giant is live music from the big giant box set that is coming out. For those of you that like Gentle Giant, will probably love it. Me, not so much. I’m not a big fan of the band, but, I know there are plenty out there, who would argue their musicianship. No argument. The band does have talent. It just doesn’t work for me. The same goes for King Crimson, which this sampler seemed to remind me of. If you like either band, you will love this. The box set comes with a coffee book with 136 pages, 30 CDs,& a signed photo.  I give this 3.5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. Possibly higher with more listening. The box set will include whole live shows from different periods of Gentle Giant.

The Flower Kings ~ Waiting For Miracles

Flower Kings waiting-for-miracles-740x740

 

Another musical gem from the Flower Kings. 2 CD’s of prime music. Out of all of this great music, there is only 1 song that didn’t seem to work with me. That one song is really good too, but certain parts of the song didn’t work with the rest of the song. Other than 1 song out of 15, all songs will most likely work for you. I give this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars.

Kane Roberts ~The New Normal

858328

 

You may know of Kane Roberts from his work with Alice Cooper. If you don’t, you’re in for a surprise. Alice does sing on 1 song. Most of the songs are very good. “Who We Are” is probably my favorite. There is some good singing & guitar work on this song. This is some good old classic rock with some heavier rock mixed with it. I give this 4 out of 5 Music Guru stars.

Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker ~ Out Of The Dark

886209

 

This album is a great album. It brings the 1980’s into 2019. The flair of Styx with the styling of Warrant. All of the songs tell a story with melodies that stick in your mind & musicianship that is top notch.  The album starts off strong and just gets better. This swedish guitarist & songwriter, made 2 albums prior to this one, & this one is the best yet. My favorite songs are “Entombed In Time”, “Castle Turns To Dust”, “Surrender” & “Everybody’s Here” which ends the album. Robert Pehrsson plays guitars, bass, keyboards & vocals on this album with friends including Joseph Tholl, Nicke Andersson,Johan Backman, Tobias Egge, Thomas Eriksson, Oscar Ulfheden, Andreas Axelsson & Jakob Ljungberg. I really like this. Let me know what you think. I give this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars.

Charm City Devils ~ 1904 EP

Charm City Devils Cover1904.jpg

 

Another Good Rock & Roll band with this too short (for me) EP. 4 songs & an alternate version. All the songs are real good & would make for a good driving or workout album, if only for a short time. I would take a bit of Alterbridge mix it with some faster Lynyrd Skynyrd & you have the Charm City Devils. The Charm City Devils consists of Child’s Play drummer John Allen on lead vocals & Guitarist Nick Kay. Also on guitars is Victor Karrera, and rounding out the rhythm section is bass player Anthony Arambula & drummer Jason Heiser. My favorite of the 4 songs would be “Tides Are Changin'”. This, to me would be their single. I rate this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars.
