Good ones from Arjen Lucassen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sonata Arctica, Chickenfoot and I especially liked Sylvan - Force Of Gravity and very very much liked Foreigner – Can’t Slow Down who are brill on CD and live with their new singer & Shadow Gallery – Digital Ghosts who also have a new singer after the death of Mike Baker who makes them sound a little more like Queensrychw, but as ever they can keep producing excellent progressive metal albums with great melody and strong musical abilities.
