Toby Hitchcock – Mercury’s Down

The second time around spinning this one picks up more steam then the first few times, it’s definitely a grower and in a similar styling as the W.E.T project which ended up being a total package delivered as one of the best Melodic Rock releases of 2010.

Work Of Art – In Progress

A polish group of songwriters that allows us to indulge in a joyful listening experience that will not disappoint are also added to the tally. These guys along with a few other veterans, are the future of a genre that while is a delicate and acquired taste…

Night Ranger – Somewhere In California

To my surprise the band here on some songs do still touch upon their trademark sound just a bit. No you won’t find any tracks like classic Ranger cuts “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” or “Four In The Morning” but still is a step forward none the less.

Journey – Eclipse

ECLIPSE is a fantastic album any way you look at it. The band have taken their trademark sound and incorporated a layer of guitar based progressive rock to it and have come up with an album that should be a real treat for both JOURNEY followers and classic rock fans equally…

Warrant – Rockaholic

s obvious Mason and the rest of the guys took a new approach to their song structures, most sleaze or glam isn’t anywhere to be found and guess what? I could care less because to be honest there were too many 80’s band in the day doing that better then Warrant anyways.

The Poodles – Performocracy

For those that have hesitated delving into what this band has to offer for whatever reason though, now may just well be the right time to jump on board. It’s been a gradual evolution sure, but now with PERFORMOCRACY, the band have transformed themselves from Scandi sleazy party rock imitators into a die-hard ass-kickin’ melodic hard rock band…

Uriah Heep – Into The Wild

The first thing that strikes me here is the lack of any progressive rock tendencies. Yes the band have been heading closer and closer to a straight pure rock sound for a long time now, but with progressive rock really witnessing somewhat of a resurgence of late, now would have been a perfect time to add some more intricate layers back through their sound…

King Kobra – King Kobra

The steamy racy appeal of “Midnight Woman” may fill the heart of every hard rocking lady that still wears black today with blunted emotion, not to mention an addictive chorus to lead the way. The fine piece of scorching Hard Rock shreds lead on the pounding of “This Is How We Roll” a tune which has anthem classic written all over it.

Whitesnake – Forevermore

Here it is folks…. The best album of 2011 winner is FOREVERMORE by WHITESNAKE!! “What?” I hear you saying… “But it’s only March, how can he do that?” Well, I guess there’s a possibility of a better album coming along some time this year but man it seems unlikely so for now just stick with me…
