Welcome to the Fishbowl is the fourteenth studio album by American country music artist Kenny Chesney, released on June 19, 2012 by Blue Chair and Columbia Records. The album includes a live version of "You and Tequila" with Grace Potter. The album's title came from a conversation Chesney had with his football-playing friends. Chesney told USA Today that when one said, "I didn't realize your life was like this," he replied, "Hey, man, welcome to the fishbowl." The album debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 in the US…
Formed eight years ago by drummer Jeff Ballard with fellow Brad Mehldau partner Larry Grenadier on bass and saxophonist Mark Turner(one of the most resourceful and independent sax newcomers of the last decade), the New York trio Fly is an exchange between equals, not a sax-led charge over a rhythm section. Though it falls into the territory sometimes dubbed "chamber-jazz", Year of the Snake is up there with Fly's best work, with its rustling fast grooves and languid horn lines, and pieces that open on almost impossibly pure high-register long tones.
Production-wise, «Right in the Guts» sounds almost exactly like the past two Accept albums. It’s the traditional metal album mix through and through. The guitars are upfront and dominate along with the vocals and it works just fine. The first thing to note here is Herman is a real high-quality guitarist and there’s nothing on this album to invalidate that. Herman Frank is a treasure of heavy metal and does everything good about the genre in his own inimitable style.
Nine Stones Close was conceived in 2008 as a solo project by Adrian Jones (Numb, Lie Big) and independently released the first CD, St Lo, in the Netherlands. After heavy airplay on The Rogues' Gallery on The Dividing Line Network he received an outpouring of critical acclaim and visibility which inspired the 2010 follow up Traces. The project grew into a band for Traces when Adrian joined up with Brendan Eyre (Riversea), Marc Atkinson (Mandalaband, Riversea), and Neil Quarrell. Geoff Barton even listed Traces in his top 20 albums of 2011 in Classic Rock Presents Prog.
Except for a rather extensive hiatus in the Nineties, Germany's Paradox has been at their game for more than 25 years. Their most productive time, however, has been in the last five years with three albums, Tales of the Weird being their most recent.
"Channelling The Infinite" is the third album from Empires Of Eden, a band/project created by Australian shredder Stu Marshall. The format is similar to the other releases, meaning Stu creates the music, then various metal vocalists put their words, melodies and voices to it. On each album the cast list has got better, and this time sees names like Udo Dirkschneider, Rob Rock, Mike Dimeo, Ronny Munroe and Alessandro Del Vecchio added to the fray.
