Red Hot Chili Peppers – I’m With You Review

The album is almost progressive in its nature, keeping the blend of funk and hard rock but also adding some odd time signatures, a bossa-nova segment and also a couple of occasions where you could be tempted to call the sound disco and even a near hip-hip piece too…

Eskimo Joe – Ghosts Of The Past

The songwriting is fantastic on GHOSTS OF THE PAST, and while there is still enough grit and angst to keep it from sounding too perfect, there is plenty of hit material here and it wouldn’t surprise me to find at least five of the eleven tunes in the singles charts at some stage over the next year or so…

Rococo – The Firestorm And Other Love Stories

The “difference” factor makes this one breakthrough, is not your typical number, it’s modern rock with an unusual aroma of 80’s ballsy groove. I have always pertained that balance, good songwriting and interesting melodies and hooks can breathe new life into an album

Elektradrive – Living 4

I think for the most part the band’s sticks to they’re original formula with a thanks for bands like Pink Cream 69 for more melodic in parts. I like the record and well worth the wait for fans of the band.
