Moaning Silence ~ A Waltz Into Darkness

This heavy rock band has some good ideas. The female singer is pretty good. The male singer tends to growl at you, which takes away from everything else. That’s what I got out of the 1st song of this album, … Continue reading

Neumatic Parlo ~ All Purpose Slicer EP

This band sounds like they should come from the 1980’s. The music & singing is very melodic. “Optics” opens up this EP. The drums sound like a drum machine, but, they don’t. There is something in the sound that doesn’t … Continue reading

Nektar ~ The Other Side

I’ve got to tell you, this is an entirely different sound for Nektar. Usually you get those long epic psychedelic songs. This album is more structured & a bit more pop. Everything flows where it is suppose to be. I … Continue reading

Long Distance Calling ~ How We Want To Live

This band is really good. Starting off with talking to set your album up doesn’t work for me, but, the music that followed the 1st track, was great. This is a really fine album. It seems Long Distance Calling gets … Continue reading

Cafe La Rouge with Steve Hunter ~ Covered With Love

  Steve Hunter, who has played guitar for Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper & Tracy Chapman, just to name a few. This is quite different than what I had expected. This was mostly a jazz EP.  Tony Levin, one … Continue reading

Morse, Portnoy, George ~ Cov3r To Cov3r

  This cover album starts off with a bang by covering Yes with the song “No Oppertunity Necessary, No Experience Needed. This song almost had me thinking it was Yes, until I heard the vocals. Nobody can do this quite … Continue reading

Izz ~ Half Life EP

  OK, This is a great piece of music. One problem…it’s an EP, so, for me, it’s too short. After hearing these 4 songs, I really wanted to hear more. Everything on here was just about perfect. The keyboards, the … Continue reading

Krief ~ Chemical Trance

  This album went into different directions for me. This starts off with a psychedelic 1960’s Pink Floyd sound, then as the album continues, it goes off into a John Lennon sound. At first I wasn’t quite there with it, … Continue reading

Tangent ~ Auto Reconnaissance

  I am a big fan of the Tangent. This album did let me down a bit. It was mostly the song where Andy has a conversation throughout the song. The music in the background is very well done, as … Continue reading

River Cult ~ Chilling Effect

  Another band with that live garage band sound, that has that vintage classic sound. The distortion is turned up high, the drums are right in your face & the bass is doing what bass is supposed to be doing…keeping … Continue reading
