Sonisphere was an excellent experience, sun, fun and many musical delights from both established artists and also artists that were new to me. Bring on next year!!
The guest vocals of Jacob Hansen add a powerful punch on the chorus bridge on “Take Hold”, and no not of the flame. The tight rhythm section jumps out again on the song “In The Depths Of A Dream” where the drums pierce with thundering roar. But the remainder songs follow the same meandering plot unfortunately.
Chronicles’ is a celebration of his life that are carefully acclimated for a special laid back listening experience. A real surprise this early year and one which fans of Young will enjoy, glad to see Escape music compile and finally release these new never before unheard songs from a great musician.
One of the best written release of the early year as I felt like I was listening to a soundtrack to one’s own emotional journey of self revelation and realization of the world “out there”. Is obvious these guys make music with intend to strike a strong emotion in each song, you add the war machine heavy guitar arrangement and the ferocious vocals of Taylor and you have quite a combination.
