I would recommend listening on spotify! One of my favorite releases this year was by Sparks but I hate how nearly half the tracks were released early. That made the overall release much less exciting and I didn't play it to death like I usually do with Sparks. However...there about four tracks that rank pretty high in the Sparks catalog which spans 50 years. Are you familiar with them? They've had about five major changes in genre during their career but the latest is as good as anyplace to start.Mona Lisa wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:24 pm I'd like to know, on all these reviews, what are the ones you'd recommend most, as a fan of Queen, Hunter and 10cc for example, but not so much into hardrock or alternative?
I already heard most from Mick Ronson... it's ok but not too much my cup of tea...
Lots of great individual songs this year. People that say there is no good music coming out are just lazy.
I really like the Coop. He had some good releases 15 years ago...Dirty Diamonds and Eyes Of Alice Cooper. I have not heard the EP you mentioned.Mona Lisa wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:24 pmThere was a new EP by Alice Cooper earlier this year , it's called Breadcrumbs, I think.
It is excellent !! It rocks and blues like hell, if I might say!!
Usually I'm not totally convinced by Alice Cooper recent releases, but that one was really fun.
I think it was more a collaboration with other musicians.
Always listenable but never essential.Mona Lisa wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:24 pm What did you think of the new Stray Cats album, last year?
I thought it was ok, but as I already heard most or Brian Setzer's albums* , same for Stray Cats.... well it sounds a bit recycled. Still enjoyable on a first listen. But you've already "heard it somewhere".
*recommended! Check the album ""13""-
I'm a fan of The Beatles and own some solo work but nothing recent.Mona Lisa wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:24 pm And one of my favourite recent releases was Paul Mccartney Egypt Station.
I don't like the track Fuh You. But it's a great album!!
His best in many years, I thought.
And another Beatles connection....
Ringo Starr, his last album from last year was really fun as well.
Also, same, his best in years!!
I don't connect!
