Myles Kennedy’s first solo album came out a few months back and I am just getting around to reviewing it and I apologize for that. I had streamed the album and had no intentions of buying it as I wasn’t totally impressed with the release. That all changed when I was out a week or so ago and came across the vinyl album in the Used section of Lunchbox Records here in Charlotte. I was stunned to see such a new release sitting in the Used section.
For me, it was a sign that I needed to buy this album and give it another try. And it was only $15 which is still pricey for used in my book. However, I still felt it was a sign. So, I bought it (along with other albums).
And let me tell you I am glad I did for several reasons. First, the Vinyl copy I bought is a special limited edition release which I was not aware of at the time. It wasn’t until I got home and started looking through everything. How do I know it is a limited edition? Well, it says so on the back cover…
If that wasn’t enough, his signature was on the cover of the album jacket which I completely missed as well as I was just too pumped to see it in the first place…
Okay, it is time to finally celebrate Creed with a collection of memes…well…maybe not celebrate so much as attack, poke fun, ridicule or anything else that might be a little negative. Come on, you know you want to. I wanted to pick ones that celebrated Creed, but honestly, there are none…really!! Come on…they weren’t that bad. So sit back and enjoy this collection of memes that are about Scott Stapp and Creed.
I hear he is out of a job again…Art of Anarchy is now suing him…
Are you saying they suck??
They are always lumped with Nickelback as the worst…
Okay, this one is a little true…
Some people just aren’t smart…
Was it really that bad????
And yes, this is definitely the truth!!! Preach it bear!!!
Oh yeah…I forgot he did this…
Before I get lots a crap for bashing them, it is all in fun. Plus, I truly couldn’t find any that celebrated the band.
Finally a Friday with an abundance of new releases. There are so many I am interested in that this could take awhile. I hope to get to them all sooner or later. I think there is a little something for everyone today. The ones that are striking my fancy are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are looking forward to getting or if I am missing something added to the comments. Have a great listening weekend.
Myles Kennedy – Year of the Tiger – (Napalm Records): Whether with Alter Bridge, Slash or just by himself, there is no getting by the immense talent that is Myles Kennedy. He can definitely sing, but his guitar playing is just as sensational. Looking forward to the focus being all about him. I have purposely not listened to anything off this album yet so I can enjoy it all at one time.
Judas Priest – Firepower – (Sony Music): Judas Priest is back with a brand new album. Enough said…Mic drop!!!
Thirdstory – Cold Heart – (Verve Label Group): After waiting for two years, we finally get the full length album they have been promising. My daughter and I saw them open for Tori Kelly two years ago and we bot really enjoyed their harmonies and just the power of their voices. Three guys doing amazing things singing together. We are going to see them again in April when they headline a little club here in Charlotte.
Calum Scott – Only Human – (Capitol Records): This former Britain’s Got Talent contestant from 2015 finally gets his debut album. After the release of his cover of “Dancing On My Own”, I was completely blown away by his vocals. Can’t wait to enjoy this one.
Three Days Grace – Outsider – (RCA Records): I have had two heavy and two soft albums and now back to heavy with Three Days Grace. I followed them since their debut in 2003 with the song “I Hate Everything About You”. They have given me consistently good albums and I expect nothing less from this hard rock band out of Canada.
Jimi Hendrix – Both Sides of the Sky – (Experience Hendrix LLC): Jimi Hendrix…worth giving a listen solely for that matter. This is the third and final in a series of unreleased tracks and surprised their have been so many and why did it take so long for them to come out.
The Fratellis – In Your Own Sweet Time – (Cooking Vinyl): (MOVED TO MARCH 16) And there is still one more I want to hear and that is the Fratellis. When I heard their album Costello Music, I adored their sound and the whole vibe. As a result, I have been absorbing all their albums and this one will be no different.
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats – Tearing at the Seams – (Bottleneck Music)
The Neighbourhood – The Neighbourhood – (Columbia Records)
Suicidal Tendencies – Get Your Fight On! – (Suicidal Records)
2018 is upon us and always fun anticipating what new albums are and will come out in the year. There are quite a few we already know about, but some haven’t been officially announced or even a date set yet. From what I have gathered around the internet, here are the bands that should have new albums out in 2018, but no dates announced yet. The ones I want will be highlighted in Blue.
Stone Temple Pilots (I know this is coming as they have said)
