Albums of the Month
BLACK STAR RIDERS Heavy
The band have thrown off the shackles of the ‘used to be Thin Lizzy’
moniker and have solidly established themselves as a major player in their own
right... (Dave Wilson)
THUNDER Rip It Up (earMUSIC)
..rocking hard, exploring melodic depth, lyrical substance and
enveloping hooks. Thunder still have plenty in the tank and
their enduring brand of Classic Rock has come round again. (Pete
LIONS Fearless (Frontiers)
...if, like me, you still hanker after old-fashioned
values of good melodic arrangements and lovingly
crafted songs, it’s an album to return to again and
MARCUS MALONE A Better
Man (Redline Music)
He’s a peerless vocalist and a hugely impressive songwriter and also has the
Midas touch as a producer....‘A Better Man’ is an early year highlight and an
essential purchase for all rock/blues fans.
WILLE AND THE BANDITS
..an album that feels organic and unrestrained. No over indulgence and no
