Chicago - Now

Chicago’s history goes all the way back to 1967 when they were formed. Since then they’ve been enjoying fame & fortune and various No1 hits in the music charts. Time unfortunately passes and shreds everything in its way. No way to stop it. That’s life.   Chicago has been going without their iconic vocalist/bassist Peter Cetera for too...

Richard Marx - Beautiful Goodbye

After the previous compilation “Inside My Head” (read the review here) in 2012 where Richard also presented 4 new tracks it was about time to strike with a new studio album. This album has been released under a different label but that’s not much of a thing for a musician like Richard.   My major objection is that out of the 11 tracks, 3...

Loverboy - Unfinished Business

Loverboy return, not long, after their recent rock ‘n roll revival album (which mostly featured re-recordings – and only 3 new songs) and following the rather spectacular, but kind of old enough, “Just Getting Started” which if memory serves correctly came out sometime in 2007 and is their sole other post millennial original material output...

The Babys - I’ll Have Some of That

The Babys are a British group that did enjoy some great success in the 70s producing some pretty cool up-tempo anthemic rock. They’d be most recognizable as the band where John Waite, cut his teeth and enjoyed, considerable chart success with several of their songs climbing high on the Billboard charts in America. The band did part ways with the actual...

Yes - Heaven & Earth

Saying anything about this band is totally unnecessary and either case it has already been told. So, I’ll cut right to the chase and say that Yes are vastly missing Jon Anderson & Rick Wakeman. With that in mind, I cannot in any way compare the real Yes (with the two aforementioned musicians) with this Yes who at times sounds like a very well-studied...
