Ardours ~ Last Place On Earth

  This album didn’t really hit me with the first instrumental song, but, by the time that “Catabolic” come on with the vocals standing above the music, really changed my mind. At first, I was ready to just notch this … Continue reading

Ruphus ~ New Born Day, & Ranshart

  Considering that I consider myself a prog guy, I’ve never heard of this great progressive rock band before. Now that I have, I can’t wait to hear more. These albums are originally done in 1973, & 1974 & have … Continue reading

Sweet Oblivion

  Another great album featuring Geoff Tate. Anything that Geoff Tate puts his hands on, seems to work very well. The music is sweet. The vocals are right where they need to be & the production is wonderful. “Transition” starts … Continue reading

Axel Rudi Pell ~ XXX Anniversary Live

  There are 16 songs on this concert album. This band ROCKS. There is a drum solo that really didn’t do much for me. Although, MOST drum solos that I don’t see live, don’t really do much for me. The … Continue reading

Dream Theater ~ Distance Over Time

  Another fine album from Dream Theater. This one is not a concept album like the previous one. The band sounds fine, as always, but there doesn’t seem to be anything new to the Dream Theater sound. That’s OK, as … Continue reading
