BRIAN FALLON  "painkillers"  cd  2016

debut solo album for the Gaslight Anthem vocalist...
loved their first three albums and the Horrible Crowes album...
wasn't too keen on their forth set (even though I bought it) and hated what I heard
on their 2015 fifth album (which I didn't buy)...
this one follows the sound of their early albums...
very E-Street Band sounding, not surprising as their musical influence was The Boss
and the fact they also come from New Jersey...
a very good album, some out and out rockers and some ballads to break up the sound...

AVETT BROTHERS  "true sadness" cd,  2016:

their nineth and my forth I own...
produced by Rick Rubin, as are the other three I own...
normally, im not a big fan of Rubin's production but he does well with these guys...
folky, country in place but mostly what i'd call Americana...
nothing bad on here whatsoever, in fact, I love most of it...
a classy band who always release quality material consistently...

PAUL McCARTNEY  "press to play"  vinyl/cd  1986:

McCartney's fourteenth post-Beatle studio album....
a strange album IMO....
some tracks just don't sound like McCartney, a couple are "out there" with their
sound, a couple of rockers and the obligatory ballads are also present...
there's feel-good songs, character songs, a couple of pessimistic tracks, which is unusual
for Macca and a couple with lyrics that are open to interpretation and would nicely between
such Beatle gems as "i am the walrus", "hey bulldog" etc etc...
its one of those albums that takes time and patience to fully appreciate, and when you do
it turns out to be a very good album indeed...
guest muso's on the album include Tony Visconti, Pete Townshend, Phil Collins, Eddie Raynor
Carlos Alomar and  Eric Stewart to name a few...

from the album, one of the more so-called "experimental" sounding tracks:
