Buck & Evans - Write A Better Day

BUCK AND EVANS Write A Better Day (Departure Records)

…feels like an old school album crafted with contemporary values.  Given enough airplay this impressive debut album should help a truly excellent band make a big splash in the rock market.

**** (Pete Feenstra)


Kris Barras - Light It Up

KRIS BARRAS BAND Light It Up (Provogue)

Kris Barras is that rare thing, an artist who stamps his own DNA on an album full of different styles and influences. He’s a passionate performer, a thoughtful songwriter and a ripping guitarist and all the elements combine splendidly here on a top class album.

**** (Pete Feenstra)


CHASING THE MONSOON - No Ordinary World

CHASING THE MONSOON No Ordinary World

…if you like highly melodic/mildly ambient rock spiced with just a soupçon of World elements, and appreciate fine female vocals, then No Ordinary World is a brilliantly produced album you’ll want to revisit time, and time again.

***** (Pete Whalley)


STEVE HACKETT - Genesis Revisited: Band And Orchestra

STEVE HACKETT Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra (Inside Out)

A totally immersive experience and an object lesson in consummate musicianship from all concerned.

***** (Alan Jones)


THE DEFIANTS Zokuscho (Frontiers)

…a memorable set of songs, delivered with freshness and swagger, which it will be hard to top in the end of year melodic rock best ofs.

**** 1/2 (Andy Nathan)
