RockmusicRaider Review - Train - Bulletproof Picasso - Album CoverThis is the Year of the Lord 1984 and we are listening to The Police, featuring Sting. Right?? Nope. It is actually present-day Train even imitating the Caribbean lilt in their opening song Cadillac, Cadillac that the former and long dissolved band did so well. Well ok – speak about transformation. Kind of a weak start to what should be a stellar record. This is how the band’s new 7th studio album Bulletproof Picasso opens up and it is not really with a volley of deadly artillery fire that will boost you out to space. Hmm.

It is the first album without Scott Underwood, the long-time drummer, leaving only Pat Monahan and Jimmy Stafford as original founding members.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Passenger – All the Little Lights (2012) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Passenger - All the Little Lights - Album CoverIt was one of these ‘interesting, tell me more’ experiences that got me looking into the British gig  Passenger, which basically consists of Mike Rosenberg as lead, plus a few studio musicians. And indeed so – he basically runs this outfit more or less on his own after the official break up of the band back in 2009. 

Little chipmunk voice seemingly coming from the Master of Nerds letting off steam over everyday issues, sometimes of the trivial kind, sometimes with more substance, but not really getting up to speed with his music. Right?? Not so fast! 

Passenger‘s fourth 2012 studio album All The Little Lights is laid back, quiet Folk Rock or simply Folk, interspersed with Pop.
