Though already released in March 2014, Space Elevator‘s debut album is only recently available on iTunes. It contains excellent songs and very good performances of all artists involved, including veteran bass player Neil Murray and impressive singer The Duchess. If you like your AOR or Pop Rock classy, female fronted & with some theatrical hints this is definitely for you! Melodicrock.nl rating: 91/100.

Another classy affair is the debut album of Cats In Space that came out in October 2014.
It features 70’s style Pop music that sounds like ‘E.L.O. meets REO Speedwagon round at 10CC‘s house’ (Rock ‘N’ Growl), has brilliant songs and features some big names: Andy Scott (of Sweet fame) and Mike Moran. The quality of the performances is A+ all over. Some reviewers label the album as a future classic. Melodicrock.nl rating: 85/100.
