Sons Of Appollo ~ MMXX

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

Simrit ~ When We Return

  This album by Simrit, although it supposed to be upbeat, I find it to be relaxing. I would put this in the catagory of new age. The vocals as well as the music is very soothing. I would give … Continue reading
