Speed Dial – Keca’m – CD

Speed Dial – Keca’m – CD (Mother West) For some reason every time I pop this in I think of The Police from “Regatta De Blanc”. There’s just something about his voice and the musical style. As the songs progress it loses that...

The Service – Who’s Criminal? – CD

The Service – Who’s Criminal? – CD (GMM Records) Great punchy UK style punk rock in the same spirit as The Clash and Sham 69. The lead singer rants on several of the songs like a euphoric Keith Morris with a British accent. I like The Service, but by...

Spring Heel Jack – Treader – CD

Spring Heel Jack – Treader – CD (Thirsty Ear Recordings) This is a strange thing to be sent to MRZ since it’s ambient/experimental/techno stuff, but it’s a nice change of pace amongst the massive amounts of Punk Rock we usually have to review....

Steely Dan – The Royal Scam – CD

Steely Dan – The Royal Scam – CD (MCA / Universal Records) This is a re-release from 1976. For those of you unfamiliar with Steely Dan, their sound is very mellow-smooth with one of the most prominent instruments being the synthesizer and a synth-sounding...

STB – Spit – CD

STB – Spit – CD (Elbo Records) I swear that Sonia Tetlow is somehow channeling Souixe Sioux. (Yes, I know Souixe isn’t dead, but her voice is here). The music is a bit goth with a lot of really good indie rock with many personal lyrics. All three...

Steely Dan – Aja – CD

Steely Dan – Aja – CD (MCA / Universal Records) If there is one Steely Dan album that you had to own, this one should be it. While every song on this re-release is killer, it’s worth getting just for the tune Peg. It is nothing short of awesome. This...

Sculptured – Apollo Ends – CD

Sculptured – Apollo Ends – CD (The End Records) An odd and hard to classify release. A progressive death metal band with a horn section… hum.. Maybe this CD would grow on me if I listened to it enough, but so far I don’t quite get it. Weak drumming, weak...

Shadows Fall – Of One Blood – CD

Shadows Fall – Of One Blood – CD (Century Media) The band Shadows Fall offers a unique mixture of sound. Their sound consists of elements of progressive metal as well as death metal. Matching each death growl with a melodic singing voice. The band actually...

Samael – Eternal – CD

Samael – Eternal – CD (Century Media) This band has progressed pretty far from their evil satanic days. The band has added what they call technology to the equation. Some keyboards and electronic drums add much to the bands sound. Still aggressive and evil...
