"Alligator Allegory" by Stravener (Rock Artist from London, England)

Stravener releases another fantastic Classic Rock CD, "Alligator Allegory." Stravener gets back to the roots of Classic Rock and comprises a superb collection of songs that are reminiscent of the '70's. These songs are crisp and clean and are dynamically balanced with mellow vocals, exceptional harmonies, and excellent instrumentation. The title track, "Alligator Allegory," grooves with a free flowing energy as the smooth vocals sing the engaging lyrics. Another song, "The Long Game," has sweet strings that complement the laid back vocals. Taking a turn to a slower beat, the ballad, "Soul Thieves," has emotive lyrics that are sung with a sweet and charming tonality. "Sleepers," is a song with a bouncy tempo, beautiful harmonies, and leaves you with an uplifted spirit. If you are a fan of David Bowie or Rolling Stones, then you will really enjoy the outstanding Classic Rock songs on the album, "Alligator Allegory."

"LIGHT IT UP" by LIBERTY N' JUSTICE (Classic Rock Artist from United Kingdom)

Liberty N' Justice has a new album, and it is called "Light It Up." This album, unlike their previous, is a studio project with the talents of songwriter/lead-singer Justin Murr featuring guest artists on nearly every song, in an album loaded with 80's metal music that have subtle Christian undertones. "Treading On Serpents" is a pulsating heavy rock song with soaring lyrics as Murr implores his listeners to "come walk with me and tread on serpents!" "Best Time You Never Had" is a gritty hard-rock song, with grisly guitar sounds and intensely thumping drums leading the way. For "Greed" we hear how Murr can belt out powerful lyrics and do it well, in this tenacious song about the evils of greed. This album is created for those who love the sound and attitude of metal rock from the 1980's, and for those who can appreciate a Christian message as well. Musically, if you are a fan of Bon Jovi or Def Leppard then this is an album you would be thoroughly pleased with.

"You're All Wrong-EP" by HolliePollock (Classic Rock Artist from Salem, Oregon(OR))

"You're All Wrong-EP" by HolliePollock has a cool alternative sound to it while also having the Classic Rock feel of Zepplin to it as well. The vocals are just as gritty as the instrumentation and lyrics which gives this album an abundance of intensity. The title track, "You're All Wrong" with its dynamic drums and talented bass emulates both lyrically and musically an expression of loneliness that's identifiable with everyone. "13th Sun" is another talent-dense track on the EP with strong and solid guitar work that embellishes the lyrical vocal. The music is on the forefront while the vocals linger behind in an almost spooky, but interesting way. This CD contains 5 tracks of intense Classic Rock music spanning this bands performance of outstanding musical capability. If any kind of Rock music is your preference, then this EP is definitely well worth hearing.

"Number Theory" by Richard Potter (Classic Rock Artist from North Carolina(NC))

Demonstrating a real mastery of his '50's and '60's influences, Richard Potter's latest CD, "Number Theory," is a thoroughly satisfying pop-rock hybrid album that succeeds on all levels. From echoes of '60's-era Neil Diamond (CD-opener, "Tell the Angels I Love You") to American Grafitti-era rock'n'roll ("Love is Blind") to the wonderfully Pulp Fiction-esque feel of the title track (featuring a terrific Herb Albert-inspired trumpet lead), Potter's solid sense of melody and pop dramatics gives his new 10-song collection a real cinematic flair. Elsewhere, "So Long" is a tuneful ballad blending Music Hall-style banjo strumming with the melancholy strains of cello, while "AM Radio (Everything I Need To Know)" is a driving rocker that's as convincing as the singer-songwriter's lighter, more pop-oriented songs. With an abundance of captivating melodies, interesting arrangements and solid performances, "Number Theory" is a terrific CD that showcases Richard Potter's original and contemporary musical vision to best effect.

"Sagittarius Passing Through" by Media Line Road (Classic Rock Artist from Pennsylvania(PA))

Media Line Road mix '60's and '70's-era pop-rock sensibilities with kaleidoscopic flair on their fine new CD, "Sagittarius Passing Through." Recalling classic rock bands such as Pink Floyd ("We're Not From Here"), The Doors ("I've Been Trying"), Moody Blues ("Fly"), and especially, the solo work of George Harrison, the 14-track collection features the kind of echo-y psychedelic effects that defined a lost era of Rock. CD-opener, "Old Belle's Bop," a tremolo-laden pop song with tasty slide licks, boasts more than a hint of George Harrison-like Top 40 charm, while "It's Kinda Creepy Baby" sounds like a demented carnival nightmare (check out the backward guitar overdubs). Re-visiting the Harrison reference, "Prayer" is a spiritual ballad with some excellent interplay between slide and mandolin, and "Good To Have You Back Again" exudes the polished pop of Harrison's work with Jeff Lynne. All told, Media Line Road's "Sagittarius Passing Through" CD is a potent and winning blend of classic and psychedelic rock influences that touches all the right bases.
