Yummy. Very good indeed. With the Fire Tiger already hitting the nail on the head, this already a good year for whatever you'd call this sub genre. 

 

And just seen there's an expanded version of T'Pau Bridge of Spies just released. Will check that out.

The only 2 that are worth anything are WET & Vega.

Everything else is under 80% imo.

The Lebrock EP is very good.

Harsh reality; I like it. It's been a wasteland of a year in terms of albums.

The evolution of music and the way I listen to it has worked out nicely for me in 2018. I'm no longer really an "album man" but kist pick and choose the songs I like so as not to waste my ear-time. There's been some real nice tunes so far this year but barely a decent album to talk about. I like Station, Vega, No Sleep For Lucy and then maybe Blessthefall as the curveball. 

But yeah, a severe, harsh lack of really good albums this year for sure. And as I said when I last posted here, LeBrock absolutely destroys anything and everything else released this year. By light years.

I agree but in no way does Lebrock destroy WET & Vega. I love those albums. 2 gems imo.

I can only mention WET, Vega & Lebrock so far.

NFO & Tremonti will join them soon to complete my top 5 for the first half of 2018.

1. LeBrock     -    Real Thing

2. Station     -    More Than The Moon

3. No Sleep for Lucy     -    Until the End

4. Self Deception     -    Self Deception

5. Vega     -    Only Human

Well, this year is being much softer than last one IMO; not exactly a surprise as a lot of great bands did their releases in 2017 and it's too soon for the most part of them.

My top-5 currently:

1. W.E.T.

2. Shiraz Lane

3. No Sleep For Lucy

4. Ammunition

5. ReVertigo

Big deception: Kamelot

Very possibly Vega, Station, and Ted Poley+Degreed will mess all this. :headbanger:

Don't be shy and let me know yours!

Time for an update:

1. W.E.T.

2. Shiraz Lane

3. No Sleep For Lucy

4. Vega

5. Station

The Station is average imo. I doubt I'll ever listen to it again.
