The singer is terrible, the band is a modern (lousy) version of Zeppelin, which in my world makes them unlistenable. Kid's stuff, for those who never have heard Zeppelin before, like Kingdom Come in the 80's. I'm not falling in that trap once more.
1. North Atlantic Oscilliation - Grind Show
2. Smashing Pumpkins - Shiny And Oh So Bright vol.1
3. Haken - Vector
4. Clutch - Book Of Bad Decisions
5. Alice In Chains - Rainier Fog
6. Myles Kennedy - Year Of The Tiger
7. A Perfect Circle - Eat The Elephant
8. Roger Daltrey - AsLong As I Have You
9. Look Now - Elvis Costello
10. Slash - Living The Dream
I don't think, I will listen to either of these albums ever again. Usually, there are 1, 2 and sometimes 3 albums, that stick out, and probably are modern classic albums. Not one this year, makes 2018 the weakest music-year for maybe the last 10 years or more.
Very off year for me as well....

We have nothing in common though I do want to hear that Don Airey album.
I'm not surprised.
This forum is not what you'd call an Yngve "friendly".
But, at least Jon and I have a common album on our list.
