Elena Andújar: Flamenco in Time

Neil Young & Promise of the Real: The Visitor

Neil Young & Promise of the Real: The Visitor

A stomping ragtaggle heavy power chord opener “Already Great” begins Neil Yong & Promise of the Real, second studio collaboration The Visitor. Young’s whine lends wonderfully to this song as much praising America as it is taking a satirical stab at the man who campaigned with a certain slogan the song takes its title from.

Lyrically we are getting lots about love, Scott having recently married and having just had a child; so the man is happy, here it is.

Cheap Trick: Christmas, Christmas

Cheap Trick: Christmas, Christmas

Along with Nielsen and Zander, original band member, bassist Tom Petersson (always an unsung hero of this band) rumbling the low end to perfect thickness, while ‘newer’ member, Daxx Nielsen (Rick’s kid) splashes and snaps above it all, Cheap Trick’s Christmas, Christmas is a sure winner. Wrap it up for the holiday.
