News: Albums of the Month (April 2022 – June 2022)

DARE- Road to Eden

DARE Road To Eden (Legend Records)

Though it would be unreasonable to expect a full return to their original style, this nice blend of classic and newer Dare is a perfect representation of where they are in 2022, setting them up nicely for the extensive autumn tour which will hopefully bring their profile back up to where it should be.  **** 1/4

Review by Andy Nathan

BLACK SWAN Generation Mind (Frontiers)

Even when they’re recycling old ideas, it’s done with such enthusiasm and skill. . . they have heart and soul and warmth.

This is how it used to be, only right now. ****1/2

Review by Brian McGowan

JOE SATRIANI - The Elephants Of Mars

JOE SATRIANI The Elephants Of Mars (earMUSIC)

Satriani once again manages to sustain a wholly instrumental album with few curveballs (the burst of funfair in ‘Dance Of The Spores’ being the one exception) and forever pushing the envelope.  *****

Review by David Randall

MATT PEARCE & THE MUTINY The Soul Food Store (Mutinear Records)

It’s an old school album forged with contemporary values, full of organic goodness and framed by deep grooves salient hooks and measured guitar playing which always pays due respect to the song.  ****

Review by Pete Feenstra

FOZZY - Boombox

FOZZY Boombox (Mascot)

What an absolute classic of a rock album, I love, love, love it, this truly deserves chart success too – that benchmark just got even higher. Grab a copy, put it on loud and educate your neighbours! *****

Review by Karen Clayton


TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT Day By Day (indie)

Like his long term band, most of these songs would have fitted into a 1970s FM radio schedule, immediately evoking the laid back sun, style and nostalgia of the West Coast.  ****1/2
