News: Albums of the Month (October 2020 – December 2020)

 Album review: FISH – Weltschmerz

FISH – Weltschmerz (Fish Music)

…this is a rich, accessible, profound album invested with heaps of integrity, passion and insight. ‘Weltschmerz’ stands as the best album of Fish’s solo career, and easily amongst the best of the year by anyone…

***** (Dave Atkinson)

DORIS BRENDEL & LEE DUNHAM - Mass Hysteria

DORIS BRENDEL & LEE DUNHAM – Mass Hysteria (Sky Rocket Records)

It all adds up to Mass Hysteria being Brendel’s most focused, consistent, and powerful offering in a decade.  A seriously impressive album, and one that rewards repeated listens.

**** (Pete Whalley)

BLUE OYSTER CULT – The Symbol Remains

BLUE OYSTER CULT – The Symbol Remains (Frontiers)

For a band who survived the hedonistic, life shortening heights of fame, a seen-it-all, done-it-all mindset would have been understandable. But the fact that they are still going strong, writing and recording truly great rock music is cause for quiet celebration.

***** (Brian McGowan)

Muddy Manninen - River Flows

MUDDY MANNINEN – River Flows (Running Moose)

an engaging album full of substance, loving care and creativity

****1/2 (Pete Feenstra)

AC/DC - Power Up

AC/DC Power Up (Columbia)

Across the album we have twelve tracks of classic AC/DC – hard riffing, catchy choruses, bouncy rhythms and a lead singer screaming his lungs out as he has for the last forty years … Brilliantly, expertly, joyously predictable, Power Up is exactly what we needed in 2020.

****1/2 (Darren Johnson)

L.A. GUNS - Renegades

 L.A. GUNS – Renegades (Golden Robot)

The L.A. Guns are back with a new album, demonstrating exactly why they are not only still relevant today and in touch with their fan base, but that they are absolute rock royalty.
