H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown
Plenty of great tunes and a couple of departures but I don't mind them. Laters naysayers!
I'm a naysayer. I don't get it. This doesn't sound anything like the band they were. Where the hell's the 'rock'? It's pretty good for a pop record that gets called rock these days, but that style sucks compared to what the band was doing before.

Nocturnal rites - Phoenix
Not sure I like it that much but it is very good if that makes sense. Gonna need loads more plays. I just wish the songs had a little more energy but the Tales and Talisman days of speedy melodic runs on the guitars are history.
Conversely, I love this album. It's heavy and modern, but still packed with plenty of great hooks and choruses. Picks up where they left off, which I know isn't what most people wanted. Works for me!

The only other thing of real note for the month was the new Black Country Communion album, which was better than I was expecting. Pretty good.

October is going to be a more loaded month. I've already heard Sons Of Apollo, Europe, Vuur, Skarlett Riot, and Sorcerer, and enjoyed all of them. Should stack up as a great month.
