  • Deep Purple: Infinite- Purple's latest is another stellar effort, and the magic working with producer Bob Ezrin continues. This one's been on regular rotation since the day of its release, and there's no slowing down in the forecast. Also their heaviest album in years. If only they would have left off the cover of "Roadhouse Blues"...

  • The Band: The Last Waltz- people have been telling me for years about how great this album is, so I decided to finally take the plunge. While there are indeed some fine moments, I'm still not sure what all the hoopla is about, and my disdain for Bob Dylan, who appears on a few tracks here, continues.

  • Eclipse: Momumentum- these Swedes never disappoint, and this latest Frontiers release is another kick ass melodic hard rock & metal effort filled with soaring hooks and killer guitar work.

  • Horisont: About Time- speaking of Sweden, here's another winner from this always engaging retro heavy rock act. Thin Lizzy, Scorpions, Grand Funk, Eloy, and Status Quo fans need apply!

  • Troubled Horse: Revolution on Repeat- leagues better than their solid debut, this sophomore effort (Sweden again!) is a magical ride down '70s hard rock & doom lane, and album filled with infectious songs and really heavy twin guitar work. Probably a top 10 album of 2017 for me!

  • Inglorious: II- album number two is another complete winner from this excellent classic hard rock band. Frontiers just keeps pumping out the gems!

  • The Allman Brothers Band: Live at the Fox- with the recent passing of Gregg Allman, I've had a heavy heart and been reaching for this recent live archival release quite a bit. 8 CDs encompassing the entire 3 night run at the Fox in 2004, this contains almost every classic ABB song you'd ever want to hear.

  • Siena Root: A Dream of Lasting Peace- once again, from the land of Sweden, comes this latest release from veteran retro '70s hard rock act Siena Root. Dynamite songs, killer playing, soulful vocals...a winner!

  • Samsara Blues Experiment: One With the Universe- yep, another incredible Swedish band. This latest throws lots of prog & psych into their heavy rock & stoner vibe.

  • Procol Harum: Novum- legendary act just keeps on keeping on. While a tad on the mellow side and lacking in organ firepower, it's still a classy effort from Brooker & Co..

  • Night Demon: Darkness Remains- this trio just kicks all sort of serious NWOBHM ass. Can't get enough of this one!!

  • Ayreon: The Source- epic all the way!!!!

  • Neal Morse Band: The Simiitude of a Dream- been revisiting this one from 2016 a bit again lately. An album that just keeps getting better and better!!

  • Mastodon: Empire of Sand- strong effort from a band that likes to keep us on our toes. Not sure where this will sit in their discography when it's all said and done, but I dig it, though after the initial burst of spins I haven't felt the immediate need to revisit much.

  • Cast: Power and Outcome- another fine album from the always dependable Mexican symphonic proggers.

  • Lunar Shadow: Far From Light- outstanding classic metal from a band we will be hearing a lot from in the years to come!

  • Twenty Sixty Six and Then: Reflections of the Future- one of my favorite reissues so far this year. Mostly unknown band who really nails that whole Hammond organ/guitar sound, this is a great early '70s hard rock & prog album that you need in your collection.

  • Immolation: Atonement- still riding this one from earlier in the year. Very fine death metal effort from these genre veterans.

  • Overkill: The Grinding Wheel- these thrash legends just keep pumping out one winner after another!
