In his show on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio on Sunday 29 March David Randall featured a selection of tracks from “Albums of the Month” (January-March 2020) (29:45)
BLIND EGO Preaching To The Choir (Gentle Art Of Music)
As with 2016’s ’Liquid’ album, it’s as if he’s slipped the leash of RPWL’s progressive rock constraints, turned the volume up to eleven and decided to blow us all into next week.
**** (Alan Jones)
ZOE SCHWARZ BLUE COMMOTION Chameleon (33 Records)
‘Chameleon’ is a vibrant album. It bristles with energy, sparkling musicianship, real artistic endeavour and proves that blues can still be an innovative musical force.
****½ (Pete Feenstra)
SON OF MAN State Of Dystopia (Esoteric Records)
There can be few contemporary rock bands who effortlessly switch from riff driven rock to AOR and then to the Badfinger style pop-rock of ‘Bring Out The Best In Me’, but that’s the measure of an impressive album that musically repudiates every aspect of its own title, on a splendid effort.
**** (Pete Feenstra)
BLACK SWAN Shake The World (Frontiers)
All of these guys can nail down a sound or a musical concept with clarity, vision and style. And with Robin McAuley they have one of rock’s premier vocalists and, clearly, he’s still got it.
****1/2 (Brian McGowan)
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH F8 (Better Noise Records)
…the guys are at the top of their game and have released a record which reflects the new found energy within the FFDP camp.
***** (Dave Wilson)
SNAKE OIL & HARMONY Hurricane Riders (Zero Entertainment)
Really hope they decide to do another album together as they work so well together. An album to put on, kick back and enjoy as the wonderful music washes over you.
****1/2 (Jason Ritchie)
In his show broadcast on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio on 10 May David Randall played a further selection of artists and albums included in the new Features series, “2020 Vision”.
