Myles Kennedy ~ Ides Of March

What do I need to say about Myles Kennedy that you don’t already know. The front man for Alter Bridge really put out a decent second album. It has a little bit of everything in it. Rock, prog, blues, pop, … Continue reading

Cactus ~ Tightrope

For a man who never listened to Cactus before, I was pleasantly surprised to listen to this album. Starting off with a great upbeat song called “Tightrope” which really got my attention. Next on the bill was a nice bluesy … Continue reading

Kayak ~ Out Of This World

Another fine album by Kayak. This one is their 18th studio album. This progressive rock band is in fine form on this album. While I have never been a huge fan of Kayak during my youth, only because I never … Continue reading

Procol Harum ~ Missing Persons (Alive Forever) EP

A nice one from Procol Harum. This one is a gem! Unfortunately, there is only 2 songs on this EP. I wish there were more. That’s how good these songs are. I’ve been listening to Procol Harum for a long … Continue reading

Liquid Tension Experiment ~ LTE 3

The first time that I heard the Liquid Tension Experiment, I didn’t really groove to it. One of my friends lent me some tracks to listen to, but, they never quite worked for me. I can’t tell you whether it … Continue reading
