Rick's Record Review


Family Values

Christ Stills took his family legacy and ran with it: writing, arranging, playing and singing these songs with the aplomb and confidence of a 30-year veteran at the ripe old age of 24.

25 Reasons to Love Music

Here are 25 albums that I will not review on this blog site because they are so intrinsically important to me that I don’t want to even start trying to analyze or squeeze them to reveal their secret hold over me – I will just continue to play them over and over until the day I shuffle off this old earth to my heavenly reward where, I am totally convinced, music will continue to play a huge role in my enjoyment of God, family and life.

Bring the Rush

Despite having to stave off the inevitable comparisons to Tool over the years, Chevelle have managed to remain relevant and consistent with a distinctive energy and songwriting ability that many of their alt metal peers probably envy.

Yes You Can

Seasick Steve is living proof that age is just a number and talent will find a way. You can read up on his colorful and myth-making life story but, really, the music is enough.

The most challenging aspect to writing this post was trying to pigeonhole Paul Weller’s sophomore solo album to a specific genre; I gave up. Wild Wood sounds like it could have/should have been recorded in the 70’s and draws on so many, particularly British, influences that there is something for everyone in the sixteen tracks along the album’s course.

Rock and Roll Outlaws

Clutch have spent their entire almost 30-year career building a loyal fan base without any help from the mainstream music industry and, as such, are still a fairly well-kept secret, even to metal and hard rock lovers.

Your review is top drawer and impeccably written. Thanks bro, I have never listened to Nick Cave but have done so now and I am hooked. The journey continues.
