Astra - The Black Chord

Not often I buy an album unheard, but I was quite taken with this band's first effort - The Weirding - back in 2009. When listening to that the other day I visited the Last.FM Album page and saw shouts for this new offering, but could find no where to stream it. (Curse you Last.Fm and your vague third party offerings). However, looking at a few trusted sites and recommendations, I downloaded and listened today.

It might take a few listens, but on first impression, it's not too bad. I find some of the tracks repetitive and lacking in development.

Dr John - Locked Down

The good Doctor goes back to his roots in the company of Dan Auerbach. It's an absolute joy and a hoot - and he's bringing the show to London - must get a ticket.

Al Di Meola - Casino

It might have been called Elegant Gypsy part II, but it's still a fine piece of work.

Planet X - Quantum

Pat Metheny Group - Imaginary Day

Roy Harper - HQ

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - The Roaring Silence

Procul Harum - A Salty Dog

    For me the opposite I have started with the black chord, now I must buy the weirding. I had to do the same as I couldn't find a stream although it is there on progstreaming at the moment. nice library.
