We've done this one a good bit, but it's been a while. So, for me, these are some of the releases I'm spinning a lot right now:
"Fortress" - Alter Bridge
"Finding What Hurts" - Ledfoot Messiah
"Something Unto Nothing" - S.U.N.
"American Honey" - Stone Machine
"The Power Of Rock N Roll/Juggernaut" - Frank Marino (a two CD "re-release" package)
"Onyx" - Pop Evil
...and still spinning it a lot ..."My Chemical Wedding" (deluxe version with 3 bonus tracks - all great!)..."Accident Of Birth"...and "Balls To Picasso"....all from Bruce Dickinson.
Seventh Key - I Will Survive - The melodies on this are just beautiful. Great melodic rock record.
Jason Isbell - Southeastern - I'd say this is tops right now. It's not rock, not completely country. Definitely singer/songwriter. And some great songs written. Lyrically this is the best thing I've heard this year. I just ordered something from his back catalog today.
Will Hoge - Number Seven - From 2011, another singer/songwriter. I guess I'm really into that right now. Just got another of his cd's as well. It seems as though he released a CD this year and I didn't know it. Ran across it in Wally World this weekend and got as a stocking stuffer. Can't wait to hear it.
John Elefante - On My Way To The Sun
John Elefante and Mastedon - Revolution of Mind (Hate to admit it but Jon was right about this one, its freaky good!!)
Circa - And So On + Overflow
Stryper - No More Hell To Pay
Every single Rush disc I own
Cool. I don't have to post Mastedon!
You should... everyone needs to hear this!
Why? Oh, yes......
"Jon was right about this one"
Rjhog will throw a hissy at this first one:
Steven Wilson--The Raven That Refused To Sing (if I'm just noodling around on the computer, I pull this album up and give it a spin)
Daft Punk--Random Access Memory (it's just that fun!)
