Best album of recent times
Fish - A Feast Of Consequences (2013)
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Last Of A Dyin’ Breed (2012)
Megadeth - Super Collider (2013)
Orianthi – Heaven in This Hell (2013)

Billy Sherwood - Art Of Survival (2012)
Various - Sound City Real To Reel (2013)
The Royal Hunt album is very nice but Fish - A Feast Of Consequences (2013) is great, one of his best for me in recent releases.
Best album from ages past
Royal Hunt - The Watchers (2001)
Royal Hunt - Eyewitness (2003)
Sextus – Stranger Than Fiction (2008)
Sextus – Devil Angel (2010)
Sextus – Stranger Than Fiction (2008) - There’s something about Eric Dover’s tone (guitar & voice) that I like.
Special mention for Yes - The Studio Albums (1969-1987) - Re-masterered with bonus tracks: Some nice, some not really needed (eg, Owner Of A Lonely Heart extended mix) But £30 for 13 CDs in a nice box is pretty good going.
