Friday New Releases – February 22nd

The last week of February, the last week of new releases for the month and the Last in Line is all I am interested in hearing.  There are a handful of releases this week so hopefully there is something for you.  Mine is highlighted in blue as usual.  Let me know what you want to get or anything I might have missed.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

  • 41zadeDZtqL._AC_US436_QL65_  Last in Line – II – (Frontiers Records):  The former Dio band consisting of Vinny Appice, Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard), Andrew Freeman and now Phil Soussan.  They aren’t playing Dio songs, but their own material.  I like Viv and Vinny so I will give it a try and see what they have to offer this time around.

  • 71fk405wvil._sx522_  Gary Clark Jr. – This Land – (Warner Brothers):  What an utter talent.  His blend of rock and blues has been hailed by Prince and even President Obama…so that should be enough to sway you to check him out.  Seriously, check him out.  You will not be disappointed.  And for this album…he has a lot to say!!!  Damn!! He needs to be heard!!

I don’t really have a desire for anything else, but there is some good stuff so hopefully you can find something…

  1. I’m interested in the Gary Clark Jr album, though I’m one of those chaps that’s often a bit disappointed by his albums (I know, it’s a shocker).

    The big release this week, for me, is the new Claypool Lennon Delirium album.

  2. Looking forward to trying that Gary Clark Jr album. Not hugely overwhelmed by his albums (there’s some killer, a lot of filler) but his live stuff shows that when he wants to let loose he’s untouchable

  3. I purchased the new Dream Theater album which is my first bought album of those guys since like 1998 or something close to that…Liked the first three tracks they released so why not give it another shot after 21 years!

          1. At some point yes! The production is stellar. This one though being Prog I got to really dig into it for the review though.. The Cover as have stated is brilliant…Hugh Syme as usual with his brilliance …

          2. One full spin through John. I have to say its quite good as DT have shortened the songs/feature more singing and less noodling around on the instruments. They still prog and rock out at times. No skipped tracks. Pretty impressed by it actually..considering its been over 20 years since I had a last visit with them..
