Patrick Hemer ~ The writing’s On The Wall

This 2020 release is good for those of you who like hard rock music. Almost every song has a lot of distortion & guitar licks that would make a guitar player want to play his guitar licks. While it may … Continue reading

Simon Collins ~ Becoming Human

Simon Collins ~ Becoming Human wasn’t quite what I thought it would be. Being the son of Genesis drummer & frontman, & also the frontman of Dimensionaut, & Sound of Contact. This album, to me, doesn’t quite hold up to … Continue reading

Automatism ~ Immersion

This release was pretty good. If you’re a fan of psychedelic jam rock, you will more than likely find this appealing. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but, I kind of enjoyed it. There is no singing on this album, … Continue reading

Frost* ~ Others EP

This EP, which has 6 songs (wouldn’t that be an album?) is quite different than what most would think about, when they listen to Frost*. I really love this band. Most of their music is really great. Their debut album, … 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
