Styx - The Mission

Styx is a band that’s seemingly perpetually on tour, has existed since forever and has been perpetually “uncool” but somehow managed several No 1s and platinum album sales, back in the day. Obviously it goes without saying that all of their lineups have been comprised of top notch musicians, which should help to explain how and why they achieved...

Mr. Big - Defying Gravity

Mr. Big are nearing their thirty year anniversary next year and now it’s as good a time as any to drop a new album, unassumingly, of new material, instead of doing “re-recordings” of their most famous albums or what not… after all the band was and is pretty much too damn talented to f@ck it up the first time around and being on a...

Hawkwind - Into the Woods

Hawkwind return only a year after “The Machine Stops” with the 30th album “Into the Woods”. But what prompted such a quick follow up, after an album that did seem to rejuvenate Dave Brock and his cosmic buddies? I suppose the lineup responsible for the previous album felt quite nicely bouncing ideas of each other and the ensuing tour only did...

The Tangent - The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery

The Tangent is a British prog band that has been releasing albums, post millennially without fail. In fact, I counter them among the most coherent bands in the genre, as they seem happy to return whenever they have a statement to make and boy do they have a few. Masterminded by Andy Tillison, who on this album assumes drumming as well, one thing that stands out is...

Riverdogs - California

The older I get, I guess the more eclectic I get. Riverdogs is a band in which Vivian Campbell (Whitesnake, Def Leppard etc.) entered after being earshot as a producer for their demo; once he was done with Whitesnake and after the Lou Gramm solo he took part in, but didn’t tour. He’d soon do the short-lived Shadowking album with Gramm as well and then...

Alice Cooper - Paranormal

Whether you choose to believe it or not, “Paranormal” is Alice Cooper’s 27th(!) studio album. Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier almost seven decades ago) has enjoyed an illustrious career that has spanned nearly the five of those decades of his adult life… coming off the heels of a rather anti-climactic sequel to his “Nightmare...
