Roger Waters: Is This the Life We Really Want?

Roger Waters: Is This the Life We Really Want?

There’s not much new on Is This the Life We Really Want? from one of the top lyricist of our time, and delivered so much better from this man back during is halcyon Floydian days, I feel.

The Move: Magnetic Waves of Sound – The Best of the Move

The Move: Magnetic Waves of Sound – The Best of the Move

Although scoring nine Top 20 UK singles in five years, The Move was one of those unique British bands that never really hit in the U.S. Lead by main songwriter/vocalist/guitar player Roy Wood, this Birmingham-based outfit would come to include drummer Bev Bevan, and later on, Jeff Lynne (and even for a time keyboardist Richard Tandy), all oh whom would lead The Electric Light Orchestra.

Willie Nelson: God’s Problem Child

Willie Nelson: God’s Problem Child

The title track is a low down bluesy number featuring the last vocal performance of Leon Russell (and vocal from Tony Joe White), again we get Nelson’s plucking his gut string, “Trigger,” while the ender, “He Won’t Ever Be Gone”, is Nelson’s tribute to country outlaw legend Merle Haggard who dies last year. Willie and Merle created and toured on their duet album Django & Jimmie, Haggards last, which topped the charts in 2015.

Richie Kotzen: Salting Earth

Richie Kotzen: Salting Earth

A stumbling drum beat and picked flang-y echoed guitar with Richie Kotzen’s wailing vocal, rolls into the plodding “End of Earth” opener Kotzen’s latest, Salting Earth. The lead guitar work here is bendy and effective, into the heavy big sing-able chorus proving, as we all know, Kotzen’s solid guitar prowess and big song ability. “Thunder” follows, a solid rocker, with a doubled slight harmony vocal and a strut of a bridge (and again) a big commercial chorus; it’s got a Whitesneake-80’s feel to it that just rocks!
