With her mind-blowing mix of heavy metal guitar prowess and bluesy, soulful vocals, Orianthi will draw some justifiably well-earned comparisons to such giants of rock guitar as Jimi Hendrix and her own idol, Carlos Santana, on her 2009 sophomore album, Believe – re-released in 2010 as Believe (II) with four different songs than the original version, including a cover of John Waite's "Missing You." That said, her style hews closer to the more finger-frenetic pyrotechnics of such '70s and '80s icons as Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai…

Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.

Farmers Market Barbeque represents the later period in Count Basie's career. Basie always maintained a firm grasp on his music; his concept never wavered or faltered when it came to good, down-home swing. Basie's music always contained elements of group interplay. In his later years, his music was much more highly arranged; however, an impromptu approach to jazz still pervaded his work. If spontaneity was the mark of the Kansas City days, lightheartedness permeated his later efforts.This is most clearly displayed on tracks such as "Lester Leaps In" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside." On the latter, the Count and his orchestra sustain a light and buoyant swing while still infusing the music with lively improvisations.

As of July 2016 it is the 14th best-selling album of all time in the UK.

If Frank Ocean moved to Iceland, he’d find a kindred soul in Ásgeir. Both make self-reflective songs drenched in late-night melancholy. “Afterglow” and “Unbound” show a deep folktronica base, the latter bubbling with glitchy touches and Ásgeir’s buttery falsetto. “Stardust” takes a more unplugged approach, a showcase for his soulfulness. Afterglow is an appropriate title—it’s an eye-opening album that sustains its charms and begs to savoured.

If 'Millenium' (1997) was a step in the right direction then nothing could have prepared the listener for the huge leap in quality that 1999's 'Angelfire' was, but not before there were some changes to the band's line-up. The record was tougher sounding with greater emphasis on the layered guitar harmonies of Ralph Santolla and Shane French, the pair created some wonderfully intricate riffs that provided extra hooks along with the already irresistible vocal melodies and harmonies. 'Angelfire' was over an hour of classic music, heavy but tuneful with barely an average song in sight, as shown here by the likes of 'Run', 'Until The Edge Of Time', 'Shamen', 'Beyond The Pain' and the incredible title-track.

Back in 1995 US outfit Eyewitness were one of the first signings of UK melodic rock label Now & Then Records. Formed by ex-Death guitarist Ralph Santolla, the Tampa-based foursome were completed by singer Todd Plant, drummer Oliver Hanson and bassist Steve Hodson. Their debut album was a fine slice of European sounding melodic metal, with soaring vocals and some fine lead playing from Santolla.

The world has finally caught up with Slowdive. A band whose reach goes far beyond just influencing music is back, with their first new album in 22 years. The album is called 'Slowdive' - self-titled in an echo of their debut EP from 1990, and is remarkably direct. Deftly swerving what co-vocalist/guitarist Rachel Goswell terms "a trip down memory lane", these eight new tracks are simultaneously expansive and the sonic pathfinders' most direct material to date. Self-titled with quiet confidence, Slowdive's stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while beguiling a legion of fresh ears.
