    Reece - Resilient Heart

    Well being a longtime Reece fan I'm rather biased, but while there's been some great stuff from him of late (Tango Down was cool but so too was his work on Wicked Sensation and his Reece Kronlund record was rather excellent with some nods back to On Target), IMO think for song consistency and performances Resilient Heart is David's best record since Sircle Of Silence \m/ To each their own of course

    House Of Lords - Indestructible

    1 SAHARA easily gets my vote fer best HOL with DEMONS DOWN a mighty close second... While at the time POWER AND THE MYTH was a letdown it wasn't and isn't that bad a record to return to fer a different HOL listen IMO... Of the recent releases sure WORLD UPSIDE DOWN is right up there but actually liked (the terribly titled) BIG MONEY best, finally they threw back to some past One Man Down playing out like the sister to the Demons Down track while Someday When continued their moden flare without losing that classic sound. Aside from the cool opening track Battle, PRECIOUS METAL however did sound tired offerring nothing fresh (of interest while lyrically meh at times CARTESIAN DREAMS thrived for its delving into new ideas and whatnot). In fact PRECIOUS METAL sounded like late 90's/early 00's Def Leppard to these ears, both musically and in production, over produced and saturated in vocal effects SO, agree with the majority here, hoping this new record is something more. Because aside from the last record HOL remain an essential part of our modern MR world \m/ A fun read folks

    Threshold - For The Journey

    Certainly can appreciate the 'tired' and 'slower' comments from the good folk here, although maybe just me but not quite hearing the borrowed and recycled riffs from the Subsurface era hmmm... Regardless this got my album of the year 2014 and return to this recod often, but that said of the two Wilson returns gotta say now prefer March Of Progress over this one but back to back they make fer a tasty days listen \m/ And kudos to major winner Autumn Red and classy fun bonus track shoulda been included in standard edition regular trackplay WTF Rating this an 8.5 previous ear bender MOP a 9 Oh and fer anyone still considering, the packaging is classy with lottsa notes and comments fer each track (and why indeed the bonus song was left off the standard editions - good stuff!)

    Hurtsmile - Retrogrenade

    Divided opinions. Personally thought both the debut Hurtsmile and last Extreme were pretty equal, so would look forward to either releasing new material in this case Hurtsmile wins. Kinda recognize the aquired taste clause but gets my vote. Can't wait!

    Skin Trade featuring Matti Alfonzetti

    Wasn't familiar with these guys back when so without comparison this is a pretty cool album. Nothing mindblowing nothing unique but the pipes are on and the tunes are good enough. Picked this up on CD and hasn't let the ears down. Had a listen to the old stuff and dunno, was more in line with the grunge scene of the day I guess but figured it was a similar situation to Bruce Dickinson's SKUNKWORKS, just go do something different while the tides out ya know!? Mind you SKUNKWORKS was an underrated gem, the Skintrade records not quite so, but I guess if not your thing then probably not ya thing now!? They got a buyer outta me this time around anyway
