There's little argument that Slash is a great guitarist, capable of making rock and blues clichés sound fresh. On his solo project, Slash's Snakepit, he plays a lot and most of his playing is quite amazing. It's too bad that nobody in the band bothered to write any songs.
With By Inheritance, way back in 1990 it seemed Artillery reached peaks in both musical and technical terms, combining strong melodies and considerable finesse with innate aggression, increasing the difficulty of arrangements and achieving a higher instrumental level than ever before…
ESP marks the beginning of a revitalization for Miles Davis, as his second classic quintet – saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams – gels, establishing what would become their signature adventurous hard bop. Miles had been moving toward this direction in the two years preceding the release of ESP and he had recorded with everyone outside of Shorter prior to this record, but his addition galvanizes the group, pushing them toward music that was recognizably bop but as adventurous as jazz's avant-garde.
Tre allegri ragazzi morti” (Three happy dead guys, often shortened into TARM) are a rock band formed in 1994 in Pordenone, Italy. The trio (Davide Toffolo, Enrico Molteni and Luca Masseroni) which has released several albums, has decided not to give its image to the media and they only imagine themselves in Toffolos’s drawings, which is an established comic-drawer. They also decided to hide their faces behind skull-masks, which have now become the symbol of the imaginary evoked by lyrics and live shows as well. The band is independent since 2000, recording under the label La tempesta (The storm), which is the same label of Giorgio Canali and Moltheni.
Valensia's second album "Valensia II" (also known as "K.O.S.M.O.S.") was the first Dutch surround sound CD ever made. It was, again, a success in Japan, but his Dutch record company didn't want to promote it. Due to this fact, it received less attention than it perhaps deserved in the Netherlands. K.O.S.M.O.S (Valensia often refers to it as "Costmost") was the most expensive album in the history of the Netherlands.
E.S.P. is the Bee Gees' seventeenth original album (fifteenth worldwide). Released in 1987, it was the band's first studio album in six years, and their first release under their new contract with Warner Bros. It marked the first time in twelve years the band had worked with producer Arif Mardin, and was their first album to be recorded digitally. The album sold well in Europe, reaching No. 5 in the UK, No. 2 in Norway and Austria, and No. 1 in Germany and Switzerland, though it barely made the top 100 in the US.
