GRETA VAN FLEET
ANTHEM OF THE PEACEFUL ARMY
$13.99(sale priced)
Someone must have really missed this stuff: chesty, surging, over-the-top rock out of a time capsule from the early 1970s.Greta Van Fleet, a four-man band from Michigan, has been tearing its way through shows and festivals in recent years. Now, it has released its debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army.On the bands 2017 EP, From the Fires, there was no mistaking its main and nearly sole source: Led Zeppelin. It all came flashing back, as Joshua Kiszkas voice yowled, swooped, moaned and quavered with every maneuver he could mimic from Robert Plant, while his twin brother, Jacob Kiszka, flung guitar riffs and power chords or wailed in unison with the lead vocal the way Jimmy Page did. Their younger brother, Sam Kiszka, played busy bass lines that hopped between riff and counterpoint, goading Danny Wagner, on drums, to rumble bursts of triplets across the tom-toms and to land extra-hard just behind the beat, like John Bonham.That was a smart gambit. It exploited the nostalgia in the elder generation of music-business gatekeepers not just for classic rock but for the kind of musicianship and larger-than-life rock stardom that Led Zeppelin flaunted. Meanwhile, for younger listeners, there was novelty in seeing a band with nothing programmed in its sound and the freewheeling dynamics of an old-fashioned power trio backing an ornately unbridled singer. Openly derivative, half-fledged songs No stoppin at the red light girl / Cause I wanna get your signal, Joshua Kizka sang in Highway Tune werent necessarily a deal-breaker.
JASON ISBELL & 400 UNIT
LIVE FROM THE RYMAN
$11.99(sale priced)
The band has become to the Ryman what the Allman Brothers once were to New Yorks Beacon. Isbell and gang have had 14 consecutive Ryman sellouts form 2014-2017 and are poised to sell out another six this fall. Clearly Isbell is on top these days, having won two 2018 Grammy Awards for Best Americana Album (The Nashville Sound) and Best American Roots Song (If We Were Vampires). They followed suit with three American Music Association Awards last month. The most recent album is well represented here with five songs, and If Were Vampires, done as on the album acoustically with Isbell and Shires, is the finale.The album begins with the rocking Hope the High Road against crunching guitars and the band firing up right from the start. He follows with 24 Frames, his major song from Something More Than Free. Keep in mind that Isbell issued both this album and Southeastern under his own name even though some band members played on them. He didnt link The 400 Unit next to his name until The Nashville Sound. As such, the full band makes the songs from those solo efforts more robust and in some cases, more emotional.
QUEEN
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
$12.99(sale priced)
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music & their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Defying stereotypes and shattering convention, Freddie became one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band with their iconic songs and revolutionary sound through to Live Aid, becoming of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. For the first time ever, audio tracks from QUEEN's legendary performance at Live Aid are being released as part of the soundtrack album to 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises' forthcoming feature film celebrating the band, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Recorded at the historic Wembley concert in July 1985, these Live Aid songs are among the rare gems and unheard versions from the band's rich catalogue.
DISTURBED
EVOLUTION
$14.99(sale priced)
Disturbed is one of those rare bands that can deliver brutally heavy, fist-pumping hard rock, but also shine on the most sensitive of ballads. The Chicago bands new album, Evolution, out Friday (Oct. 19), is a perfect snapshot of that Disturbed dynamic, as it jumps from chugging, riff-fueled tracks to beautiful, bare-bones numbers.Evolution kicks off with the albums fiery first single, Are You Ready, which actually marks the bands 12th No. 1 rock single. Lead vocalist David Draiman powerfully sings the commanding lyrics, Well, are you ready now? / For the revolution / For too long your power / Has been taken away / Its been taken away, and guitarist Dan Donegan, bass player John Moyer and drummer Mike Wengren carry the song with a cohesive musical attack. Its a rhythmic hard rock song that definitely appeals to fans of Disturbeds crunchy, heavy hits, such as Down with the Sickness and Stupify. No More, the following track, has an irresistibly bouncy, catchy beat that makes it almost a dance-rock track. A Reason to Fight comes next, and here, Disturbed delivers a touching, sensitive acoustic ballad about watching a loved one suffer with addiction.
