If Spirits of Fire the album doesn’t force you to break out the leather studded armbands, the patch adorned denim vest and propel you to throw the horns up and bang your head, then you might want to check your pulse, because you might be dead.

Patina is definitely more in line with the bluesier Badlands style while retaining some of the heavier more modern trappings of the last album.
How I ever doubted this album’s greatness, I’ll never know. I’ve said it before: sometimes an album catches you at the wrong time.
If this album isn’t at the top or at least in many Top 5 of the year lists I will be shocked. In a year of some standout releases, Groundbreaker with their s/t debut is pulling no punches and hopefully giving the fans of melodic rock not just another one off project..
Fewer bands have been able to turn a reunion into a rebirth better than Treat. Though the ultimate success still eludes them (and who knows why) they continue to release some incredibly catchy music that deserves to be adored by the masses
If you enjoy more melodic, pop-oriented Prog Rock, 3.2’s The Rules Have Changed should fit the bill. Berry took to the task of filling some spots for some legendary figures and came out shining like a star.
Lucky Dog is a brilliant AOR masterpiece. Stepping away from the Adult Contemporary world, he adds a bit more edge to his sound than was shown on Solo, as well as his work with others.
Amanda Somerville. She has shown through various outlets that she can hold court vocally within a multitude of subgenres, and stand toe to toe with any man who dares. Her latest project, Trillium, is clearly a more melodic metal vehicle for her stunning talent, and it works perfectly.
A couple years ago I got to attend my first ProgPower Festival. I had such a blast that I’m geared up for #3 in a row later this year. In my research to learn about some of the bands, I was less familiar with I was having a helluva time finding info about the band Refuge.
