Dukes Of The Orient - Freaskshow

Dukes of the Orient – Freaksow

I was never a big fan of Saxophone in rock music, more often than not I think it ruins the songs. However, there is one exception and that is John Helliwell from Supertramp. I really like his style and thankfully, as there is a lot of sax on this record, Eric Tewalt’s playing seams to by influenced by him.

Deep Purple – Wooosh!

I think that this and the two previous albums produced by Ezrin are the bands best albums since the MK II breakup in the seventies and at this moment “Whooosh!” is probably the best of them

Kansas – The Absence of Presence

The album starts very impressive with three mighty prog songs that should make any old time Kansas fan happy. These songs “The Absence of Presence”, “Throwing Mountains” with an almost Rush like opening riff and “Jets Overhead” with an excellent violin solo by Ragsdale are like a continuation of classic Kansas in true adventures Kerry Livgren style

One last Hurrah, or maybe two?!

Apparently there are a bunch of Budgie songs that Burke recorded vocals for before his aortic aneurysm that he says that he would like to use for one final Budgie album. Burke says that he will call it “One last Hurrah”.

Future Elephants? – Humans Passing Through

This is hardly a metal album but if it was released in the seventies it would most definitely be labeled hard rock. I really liked their debut and this, their second album, is even better. It’s quite different but without losing their sound and style.

To the Seventies and back, again…

I started to enjoy it a little bit more again around 2010 and in early 2012 I finally did something I always wanted to do, I bought new great and expensive speakers for my hifi. What a difference, it was like experience good music for the first time again.
