DREAM THEATER - Dream Theater (Review)

 

Dream Theater's cracking new (from 2013 at least) self-titled album really is a return to songs playing the most prominent role in the album.

I really can't stand the needless prog-wank that takes up most 10 minute plus songs, yet even the 22 minute epic Illumination Theory on here is constructed from melodies that last the distance. It's quite an exquisite piece of music.

And when the guys hammer out some metal, there's a definite structure in place, more so than in recent albums I feel. Above all – this album features great songs and some beautiful melodies, especially with Enemy Inside, The Looking Glass and Bigger Picture.

SEBASTIAN BACH - Give Em Hell (Review)

 

It seems the older Sebastian gets, the higher his vocals go. On Give Em Hell he hits a few new record highs that dogs will appreciate, not only with the screams. It's an interesting album this – producer Bob Marlette collaborates even more so, credited within for writing music and “melody” on many tracks, while also playing bass. Guests seem to make up the majority of the album – Duff McKagan plays bass on several tracks and even guitars on another; Steve Stevens plays on a few others and gets writing credits on those songs – not that I could really pick his usual tone out here – most of the album is down tuned, modernized metal.

THREE LIONS - Three Lions (Review)

 

It's a career full-circle for guitarist Vinny Burns who returns to the melodic rock of his early days in Ten, as Three Lions makes their debut album available. Formed by Burns with fellow Ten alumni Greg Morgan and newcomer bassist/vocalist Nigel Bailey, the trio is set to make a mark.

Produced and assisted musically by Alessandro Del Vecchio, the album has a tight, crisp feel that is simply British melodic rock through and through. Vocalist Bailey is similar to Ten's Gary Hughes in that he doesn't have a big vocal range, but has a warm, likable tone that suits the style and the delivery here.
