Genre: Rock

After racking up their biggest success to date with We’re an American Band, Grand Funk Railroad decided to keep a good thing going by retaining Todd Rundgren as their producer and continuing to push their sound in a pop/rock direction. The end result has its moments but is not as strong as We’re an American Band. Although the songs are tight and benefit from a strong performance by the group, the material simply isn’t as inspired this time out: songs like “Please Me” and “Getting Over You” are energetic but lack the infectious hooks and clever arrangement touches that would make them stick in the listener’s memory. Shinin’ On’s best songs are the ones that became its single releases: the title track infuses its hard-driving, spacy rock groove with some surprisingly ethereal vocal harmonies and the cover of “The Loco Motion” turns this dance classic on its ear with a stomping beat and a screeching guitar lead from Mark Farner. Other tracks make up for their lack of hooks by experimenting with the group’s sound in interesting ways: “Mr. Pretty Boy” is a creepy slow blues that features an atmospheric Mellotron backing and “To Get Back In” is a full-fledged soul song built on thick combination of organ and horns. In the end, Shinin’ On is too unfocused and uneven to win over non-fans but Grand Funk Railroad fans will find plenty to enjoy on this album.

Grand Funk – We’re An American Band (1973) [Japanese SHM-SACD 2014] {SACD ISO + FLAC 24bit/88,2kHz}

Genre: Rock

Having made several changes in their business and musical efforts in 1972, Grand Funk Railroad made even more extensive ones in 1973, beginning with their name, which was officially truncated to “Grand Funk.” And keyboardist Craig Frost, credited as a sideman on Phoenix, the previous album, was now a full-fledged bandmember, filling out the musical arrangements. The most notable change, however, came with the hiring of Todd Rundgren to produce the band’s eighth album. Rundgren, a pop/rock artist in his own right, was also known for his producing abilities, and he gave Grand Funk exactly what they were looking for: We’re an American Band sounded nothing like its muddy, plodding predecessors. Sonically, the record was sharp and detailed and the band’s playing was far tighter and more accomplished. Most important, someone, whether the band or Rundgren, decided that gruff-voiced drummer Don Brewer should be employed as a lead singer as often as guitarist Mark Farner. Brewer also contributed more as a songwriter, and the results were immediate. The album’s title song, an autobiographical account of life on the road written and sung by Brewer, was released in advance of the album and became a gold-selling number one hit, Grand Funk’s first really successful single. Despite the band’s previous popularity, for many, it must have been the first Grand Funk record they either heard or bought. Elsewhere on the album, Farner contributed his usual wailing vocals and guitar, singing of his heartfelt, if simpleminded, political concerns. But We’re an American Band really belonged to Brewer and Rundgren, and its success constituted a redefinition of Grand Funk that came just in time.

Backed by a string quartet, Gianna Nannini’s 18th album, Perle, sees the Italian singer/songwriter perform new interpretations of some of her biggest hits. Produced by Christian Lohr, the 2004 LP features 13 re-workings of tracks taken from her 30-year career, including material from 1979’s California, her 1986 breakthrough, Profumo, and her 2002 effort Aria.

George Harrison – Live In Japan (1991/2004) {SACD ISO + FLAC 24bit/88,2kHz}

George Harrison – Live In Japan (2xSACD, 1991) [Reissue 2004] {2.0 & 5.1}

George Harrison returned to the stage for the first time in years in 1991; that Japanese tour is documented on the fine double-disc set Live in Japan. Backed by a stellar supporting band led by Eric Clapton, Harrison turns in surprisingly strong versions of his best solo material; it easily surpasses Paul McCartney’s double-disc Tripping the Live Fantastic or Paul Is Live. Not bad for a guy who doesn’t like to give concerts.

Gentle Giant – Octopus (1972) [Japanese Limited SHM-SACD 2010] {SACD ISO + FLAC 24bit/88,2kHz}

Genre: Rock

Returning to Gentle Giant’s fourth album after any kind of lengthy absence, it’s astonishing just how little Octopus has dated. Often written off at the time as a pale reflection of the truly gargantuan steps being taken by the likes of Jethro Tull and Barclay James Harvest, the band’s closest relatives in the tangled skein of period prog, Gentle Giant often seemed more notable for its album art than its music. Octopus, however, marries the two seamlessly, with the cover speaking for itself, of course. And the mood continues within, the deliciously convoluted opening “The Advent of Panurge” itself riding waves of sonic tentacles as Gary Green’s guitar shrieks short but so effective bursts around the thundering bass and, occasionally, churchy organ. Against the pulsating volume of the album’s heavier tracks – “Panurge” is joined by “A Cry for Everyone” – the band’s excursions into less excitable territory are never less than captivating. Twiddly though they are, the sometimes a cappella “Knots,” the lilting “Dog’s Life,” and the Yes-with-fiddles-ish “Raconteur Troubadour” all have moments of sublime sweetness, while the instrumental “The Boys in the Band” is a succession of quirky showcases for, indeed, all the boys. Occasionally arrangements do get overly cluttered – with each of the six bandmembers doubling up on at least three different instruments, there’s a distinct sense of overdubs for overdubbing’s sake. Follow the key instruments alone, however, and the soundscapes not only make perfect sense, but so do the flourishes and intrusions that rattle around. And the end result is an album that has withstood the test of time a lot better than anyone might have expected.

Valdez – This (2017) [WEB FLAC]

Valdez - This (2017) [WEB FLAC] Download

Artist: Valdez
Album: This
Genre: Rock
Year: 2017
Size: ~ 333 mb
Source: Digital Download
Format: FLAC (tracks)
Quality: lossless
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

Whichever way you look at it, Valdez are a super-group formed by some of the finest of the progressive scene. The singer/guitarist is none other than Simon Godfrey (Tinyfish, Shineback and solo artist) who emigrated to the States in 2014, bassist/singer Tom Hyatt was of course in the much-missed Echolyn, while keyboard player/singer Joe Cardillo is from Cold Blue Electric and drummer Scott Miller (Stone Jack Baller) completes the band. If that wasn't enough, Echolyn's Brett Kull produced it as well as providing additional guitar and vocals. Tom and Simon met by chance at a comedy club in Philly and got on so well that they decided to jam the following evening at an open mic night. The duo were an instant hit with the crowd and as they left the stage, they agreed to form a band that would go on to become Valdez.
It is almost as if Tinyfish have joined forces with Echolyn, and in many ways I guess they have. For many of us following the scene in the Nineties, Echolyn was one of the most important prog bands to come out of America, with 'As The World' making a huge impact on everyone. Simon first made his presence felt with his brother in Freefall, but it was some years later that Tinyfish came to everyone's attention, with two incredibly well-received albums, and now here we have Simon and Tom working together in this new entity. This may also be the first time that Tom is back working with Brett in more than twenty years, given that Tom didn't rejoin Echolyn when they reformed in 2000.

So, enough history, what about the album? Well, it's a masterpiece of course. The worry when well-known musicians get together is that they can rest on their laurels and rely on their reputations to get them through, but here the guys have left their egos at the door and instead have concentrated on as wonderful a piece of crossover poptastic progressive rock as one could ever wish to hear. To say that this is a joy to listen to is to understate it immensely, and Simon in particular is a revelation. I don't think I've quite heard everything he has released, I've certainly heard most of it and based on that I can say that it is easily the best thing he has ever been involved with. It oozes class, has hooks aplenty, loads of space and room to breathe, and is just awesome.

I refuse to pick a favourite, as whatever song I am listening to is the best, whether it is the melodramatic or bouncy and vibrant, there seems to be nothing that these guys can't excel at. It really is an album that is packed full of songs, no over the top soloing or unnecessary note density here, it is all about what is best for the music as a collective whole. And I love it (in case you hadn't guessed). Truly essential.

Format: FLAC (tracks)
Quality: lossless
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

The Western Massachusetts deathcore veterans' eighth studio long-player, Gravebloom opens appropriately with a track called "Worthless," a turgid, dirge-like rumination on self-esteem that's so relentlessly bleak it almost feels like a parody. It's fitting because the Acacia Strain have been tossing blackened coins into the bottomless pit of despair for nearly two decades, and while little effort has been made to expand or even reign in the band's sound, innovation has never been the point. Gravebloom, like nearly every album in the genre, is about distilling apoplexy into song, and with that in mind, it's hard to argue against its efficacy. Lead single "Bitter Pill" and the propulsive title cut deliver the 11-track set's most kinetic moments via meaty blasts of thrash and doom, boiling evil down to its molten core via artless lyrics like "Everything I see, I kill" and "Dead in the dirt, I hope the dying took forever, I hope it fucking hurt." Words have never been the band's strong suit, but there is some horror in their childlike simplicity. Elsewhere, it's pretty much a dissonant, midtempo doom and gloom party; a four horseman-pulled food truck peddling hopelessness cakes to bubos-covered peasants in the midst of a pandemic. Fans that feasted on the band's seven previous outings and enjoyed the minerally aftertaste will likely rate Gravebloom a success, as it descends as deep or deeper into the abyss, but those with more curious palates should probably bring some snacks.
