This month we were most impressed by these new albums:
Lalu‘s 3rd studio album Paint The Sky is a band-project of Vivian Lalu with Joop Wolters and Damian Wilson. Adventurous and classy progressive heavy rock, somewhat like a modern version of classic style Yes. Very well done. Reviews: 1, 2, 3. Videos: The Chosen Ones and Paint The Sky. Interview. You gotta love this guy.
Eric Gales new album Crown is probably his most personal and consistent one. Produced by Joe Bonamassa this is an excellent and varied Blues Rock album. Eric definitely deserves a far wider audience. Reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Videos: I Want My Crown and Stand Up.
