Doug Wahlberg Band - Flying Under the Radar
Review by Gary Hill
I came close to putting this under progressive rock. There are definitely prog elements in most of the songs here. .

Narada Michael Walden - Thunder 2013
Review by Gary Hill
What a cool album this is.

More
Narada Michael Walden - Evolution
Review by Gary Hill
I love the blend of jazz, soul that we get here.

More
The Walking Sticks - Send the Night EP
Review by Gary Hill
I wish there was more here than just these four songs.

More
War Poets - American Police State
Review by Gary Hill
This is a very diverse set. At times it comes into a melodic rock sound.

More
The Warlocks - Vevey
Review by Gary Hill

I really went back and forth on where to put this. There was a time when I thought I'd land it under prog rock.


More
Ricky Warwick - Love Many Trust Few
Review by Gary Hill
Listening to this disc I never would have pictured Ricky Warwick to be from Ireland. Truly his Mellencamp like roots rock approach conjures up images of the Southern United States far more than of the Green Isle.
More
Grover Washington, Jr. - Winelight (Hybrid Multichannel SACD)
Review by Gary Hill
This new edition of a classic Grover Washington album is great.

More
Water Street - Waiting for Martin
Review by Gary Hill
There is definitely a roots music fascination in music these days.

More
Shelly Waters - Shelly Waters
Review by Gary Hill
Louisiana native Shelly Waters has a powerful and soulful singing voice. That is perhaps the biggest selling point of this album.

More
Watzreal - Wisdom Wit Attitude
Review by Gary Hill
There are a lot of interview clips interspersed throughout this hip hop set.

More
Weathered Man - C-30 Duets Vol. 1
Review by Gary Hill

This EP is quite cool. It has a great blend of classic soul and jazz sounds with modern music.


More
Leo Bud Welch - Live at the Iridium
Review by Gary Hill
In some ways blues music and punk rock have a lot in common. Both are limited musical styles by definition.

More
Well Known Stranger - Another Sun (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
It’s tough to judge a lot from one song, but that’s what we’ve got here. It’s quite a strong cut, though.

More
Paul Weller - A Kind Revolution
Review by Gary Hill
Paul Weller is best known as the leader of the Jam. This is his new solo album.

More
Jim Wellman - Dawn to Dusk
Review by Gary Hill
Thematically, this is definitely music for thinking persons.

More
Wendy and Lisa - Wendy and Lisa (Expanded Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
This is a newly remastered and expanded edition of the debut disc by Wendy and Lisa.

More
Wendy?! - Notebook
Review by Gary Hill
The blend of rock sounds here is pretty diverse.

More
Wendy?! - Idols & Gods
Review by Gary Hill
This band was formed by Italian hardcore musician Lorenzo Canevacci. While they are punk rock in a lot of ways, they are not hardcore and are not limited by the punk label.

More
The West Ghost - Son of Sorrow
Review by Gary Hill
This is really quite an unusual release.

More
Westworld - Westworld
Review by Brian Angotti
Westworld started out as a side project, but has quickly become a highly acclaimed musical act. Westworld's debut album, simply titled Westworld, is a great new rock-n-roll album for the new millennium.
More
Whiskey Wolves of the West - Country Roots
Review by Gary Hill

"Country Roots" really might be the best title for this set. While not all of this is country music, it all has "country roots."


More
White Witch - White Witch
Review by Gary Hill
The debut album from this southern band, this one showed very strong prog leanings, and really, with a few exceptions, holds up well even after this much time.
More
White Witch - A Spiritual Greeting
Review by Gary Hill
Released in the early `70`s this album has recently been reissued on CD. Long a cult classic band, White Witch combined hard rock with prog elements and a sense of mystery.
More
Barry White - Can’t Get Enough (Vinyl)
Review by Gary Hill
It’s actually a cliché, Barry White’s music is all about romance and seduction. The truth is, it’s well earned.

More
Whitesnake - The Purple Album
Review by Larry Toering
What can be said about Whitesnake (or Deep Purple for that matter) which hasn't already been said?

More
Wiccid - By Design
Review by Gary Hill

I like this album quite a bit. It mixes techno, industrial and electronic dance music textures.


More
Andy Wickett & World Service - Creatures of Love
Review by Gary Hill

While everyone knows of Duran Duran with Simon Le Bon as their singer, Le Bon actually replaced Andy Wickett in that group.  This is Wickett's current project.


More
Widowmaker - Running Free: Jet Recordings 1976-1977
Review by Gary Hill

I've never heard this band before. That's a shame. Don't get me wrong, I've heard of them before.


More
The Wild Waiting - Stay Gold
Review by Gary Hill
There are two songs here that make the whole thing worth having.

More
Rob Williams - An Hour Before Daylight
Review by Gary Hill

There has been a big resurgence in recent years of roots music. This is definitely in line with that.


More
Vanessa Williams - Silver and Gold
Review by Gary Hill
With Silver and Gold Vanessa Williams has put in a strong, if not entirely consistent holiday release. The disc has quite a few strong points, and very few songs that are weak.
More
The Ann Wilson Thing! - #2 Focus
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new EP from The Ann Wilson Thing. That's Ann Wilson of Heart, and this is her solo band.

More
Brian Wilson - Smile
Review by Steve Alspach
Some albums have been labeled ahead of their time, but this one takes the cake. The quantum leap that Brian Wilson tried to take between the "Fun, Fun, Fun" Beach Boys of two years prior to this sprawling paean to American music left him severely fried and made for great fodder for rumors and speculation.
More
The Winery Dogs - The Winery Dogs
Review by Gary Hill
When I heard the lineup on this, I assumed it would be a progressive rock release.

More
The Winery Dogs - Hot Streak
Review by Gary Hill
This band seems to really be hot right now.

More
Edgar Winter - Tell Me in a Whisper: The Solo Albums 1970-1981
Review by Gary Hill

This new box set captures all of the albums Edgar Winter recorded under just his name (as opposed to the Edgar Winter Group) from 1970 to 1981.


More
Edgar Winter - I've Got News for You: Featuring The Edgar Winter Group and Edgar Winter's White Trash 1971-1977
Review by Grant Hill

This new box set compiles all the albums recorded by Edgar with his two bands (Edgar Winter's White Trash and The Edgar Winter Group) from 1971-1977.


More
Johnny Winter - with Dr. John – Live in Sweden 1987
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve reviewed the DVD release of this separately in this issue. This is the audio CD.

More
Wolff & Clark Expedition - Wolff & Clark Expedition
Review by Gary Hill
Although it’s not, this really feels live. It’s essentially a potent jazz album.

More
Binky Womack - Womack Style
Review by Gary Hill
Binky Womack might have lived in the shadow of his more famous uncle Bobby, but he's not lacking in the talent department at all.

More
Sam Woolf and The Como Brothers - On It (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill

This soulful single does a great job of bringing a modern edge to a retro texture.


More
Wooster Sang - Wooster Sang
Review by Gary Hill
In a mode that is both modern and nostalgic this is a very good rock album. At times various influences show through, most notably Lenny Kravitz and The Black Crowes, but in many ways, Wooster Sang has their own particular flavor.
More
Joshua Worden - Always This
Review by Gary Hill
Blame it on the whole “download one song you like” movement.

More
Wormwood - BADWORM
Review by Gary Hill
This is a hip hop set, but it’s kind of unusual for hip hop.

More
Steven James Wylie - Everything I Love EP
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool EP.

More
Tammy Wynette - Bedtime Story / My Man
Review by Gary Hill
This reissue has two full Tammy Wynette albums on one CD. Of the two discs, I think I like the second one better.

More
Tammy Wynette - I Still Believe in Fairytales / Til I Can Make It On My Own
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new reissue of two classic Tammy Wynette albums on one CD.
