Here’s what floated our boat this year.
Dark Transylvanian fuzz.
Stories and soundscapes that keep drawing you in.
45 years of ‘Classic Rock’ experience put onto one album.
Tension-filled, attention grabbing.
Monster riffage leads to profuse headbanging.
Phat grooves and hooks.
‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ with more than one schooner of beer added.
A full cartridge of amour-piercing metal.
Hit their stride with ease and grace, pace and talent.
All shades of blues, delivered with appeal and aplomb.
The albums that made it onto here, reflect well (we think) on what a thoroughly diverse and generally inspiring year for Rock Music 2014 has been; new kids on the block along with those out earning their stripes, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with some old-stagers.
