5.0 out of 5 stars The best Canadian rock guitarist., Jan. 28 2016

This review is from: Feelin' Right (4 CD) (Audio CD)
Without any question, Pat Travers shines as one of the best. Perhaps Jeff Healey (RIP) is in the same league. On this fantastic compilation you will find Travers as a singer, musician and composer. There are instrumental tracks as well, some touching jazzy feel. On CD 3/4 he sounds like Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), on CD 1 close Rory Gallagher. The quality of sound is great. No true classic 70/80 rock music aficionado should miss "Feelin' Right" !

of melodic rock/pop jazz fusion makes the CD very enjoyable. Funk dominates, but not exclusively. Two tracks feature vocal performances, there is solo by Dennis as well. Dennis managed to obtain collaboration from a large group of famous jazz musicians and this convinced me to purchase "Groove and Move". Highly recommended.

Steven Wilson is getting better with every solo production. I cannot imagine what will be his next. Simply speaking, listening to' Hand Cannot Erase'
gave me the same emotions as Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' long time ago. No need to write more. Steven Wilson rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Less known 'queenish' rock., Nov. 20 2015
This review is from: Back to the Light (Audio CD)
Here we have Brian May's first complete attempt at a solo album, the hard rock sound of Queen. Personally I like this CD more than any Queen LP from the past, perhaps because I am tired of old Queen's hits on the radio. The album succeeds best on its heaviest tracks which features famous drummer Cozy Powell. It was great to discover and hear May's guitar and realise his importance for Queen's stardom.
I would also recommend second, nicely diversified, Brian May's Cd "Another World". It contains nice ballads and covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virgil Donati is absolutely praiseworthy.., Nov. 9 2015

This review is from: In This Life (Audio CD)
I was not aware of his talent and quite long career. Yet he has been around since many years contributing to recordings of great musicians like Scott Henderson, Allan Holdsworth or Eric Norlander. By accident I came across the music of Planet X and it was a new discovery for me - metal jazz fusion. I followed a bit who plays there and Virgil Donati popped out with his new CD. I bought it right away. He is not only a fantastic drummer, he is a good composer. "In This Life" he proves it. Great achievement for Donati and I wait for his next effort.

2.0 out of 5 stars Offers nothing that is stimulating or challenging., Oct. 24 2015
This review is from: Desolation Rose (Audio CD)
I cannot take them no more. This is monotonous and rather vapid stream of music meandering aimlessly. Nothing catchy. The same with "Banks of Eden". One may play a few of their CDs and will not be able to distinguish between them. If you have either "Stardust We Are" or "Flower Power", this is more than enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately boring and vapid., Oct. 17 2015
This review is from: Rattle That Lock (Audio CD)
I am sorry to say it, but David has lost totally his verve. I may tolerate "On the Island", but not any more of this dolorous stuff. It borders with elevator/contemporary music, nothing interesting, lack of rocking of any type. By the time you hear the last sound from this CD (firewood crackings) you will have been long time asleep. Stick to his first two solo LPs.

This review is from: Montrose (Audio CD)
I greatly enjoy Ronnie Montrose music. I was lost in the end of 70es, did not know what bands I really want to follow. Few emerged like Supertramp or Dire Straits. I liked Foreigner as well, but only the " 4 ". Just recently I have discovered Montrose and other Ronnie's endeavours like Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. They all represent hard and melodic rock classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars The treasure among 'one LP band' from 70es., Aug. 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had the Repertoire release of this extraordinary rare hard prog- rock band 15 years ago. This one with bonus tracks is even better.
It is impossible to compare Fuzzy Duck to any famous band, but Steppenwolf is perhaps the closest. If you like Deep Purple and Atomic Rooster, then this CD is a treasure, along with others like T2, Incredible Hog, May Blitz, Writing on the Wall, Indian Summer, Armageddon, Leaf Hound, Lucifer's Friend, Black Widow, Kin Ping Meh, Warhorse, Epitaph, Twenty Sixty Six and Then, Black Widow or Steel Mill..you will be amazed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Knopfler reaches the deflection point here.., July 23 2015
This review is from: Tracker (Deluxe) (Audio CD)
...producing a quite mediocre album. Musically nothing new, it is a snoozer. The randomly scattered lyrics do not tell a lot if one have not read an insert's article. "Tracker" is not in the same league as "Golden Heart", "Shangri-La", "Get Lucky" or "Privateering". Skip it.
