New 2016 album release by The Monkees! If you were ever a Monkees fan, this album will bring back all that 60s fun. Songwriting contributions by Boyce & Hart (who wrote many of the Monkees songs), plus Neil Diamond and Andy Partridge (XTC). A wonderful album that I'll continue to play over and over. I was a huge Monkees fan as a kid in the 60s and couldn't get enough of them. Mickey, Mike and Peter have successfully brought the band into the 21st century while taking the listener back to the great sounds of the 60s, and Davy Jones makes an appearance in a track that was recorded for a 70s Monkees box set. This is a real treat!

Who have they got in to replace Davy then? I used to quite like some of their stuff. I thought they were actually better than the critics made them out to be. smiley

Davy hasn't been replaced. It's the remaining 3 guys on vocals with a studio band. The guys do play the occasional instrument; ie, banjo, drums, guitar, keys, bass, etc, but the bulk of the music is done by the pros.

Mudcrutch 2 (2016)
User Image

Mudcrutch features most of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, including Petty himself and Heartbreaker standouts Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, along with Tom Leadon and Randall Marsh. If you like TPATH, you'll enjoy this band.

Mudrutch was actually Petty's band before he formed The Heartbreakers. They re-formed in 2008.

Indeed, they all used to do vocals anyway, and Mike is my favourite singer of the bunch. And songwriter, obviously! wink

Big Big Train - Folklore.

This is a very well produced, well written, and well performed album. It's up to the usual BBT standards but, maybe for the first time, doesn't excite me as much as their older stuff. I may change my opinion over time, but after the first couple of listens it's exactly what I'd expect from them, but nothing more. Still a good album though and I'll probably end up buying it. smiley

Going to take a few listens but initially not as good as EE1 or 2. Not sure but I think it lacks the melodies of the last 2 albums and the likes of Uncle Jack, Judas Unrepentant and Swan Hunter. It is brilliantly produced and feel the album has more strings and less keyboards so the big lush sounds are not as prevalent on this album which may be the whole point in a more folk centric direction. I may change my mind after a few more listens but I miss the big epic track like The Underfall Yard, Wide Open Sea and East Coast Racer which all make the hairs on my neck rise - nothing so far on this album has done that yet.
