Shaman Elephant ~ Wide Awake But Still Asleep

  Another album in the hard rock follows my last review. This is not thrash metal, it is more melodic in nature, but, the musicians all stand out on the album. The drummer really stands out even more than the … Continue reading

Sons Of Appollo ~ MMXX

  Another great one from Sons Of Appollo. Starting off with a song over 7 minutes long, that starts off very slow & melodic, and then blisters into what you would expect from Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, … Continue reading

Various Artists ~ A Tribute To Keith Emerson & Greg Lake

    This album really took me by surprise. I knew that I would love the music, as I love ELP. Usually these albums are hard for me as someone usually messes up a song badly enough, where I can’t … Continue reading

Annie Barbazza ~ Vive

  I was disappointed with this release. There is nothing wrong with it. It just didn’t go anywhere until the very last song. That’s when the music started to move me. Annie can sing, but, most of the album is … Continue reading

Pure Reason Revalution ~ Eupnea
