E-Life 7 - Featuring Michael Pennick - Miked Up
Review by Gary Hill

Let's make this clear at the onset: this is not progressive rock. It is, however, fusion, and we usually land fusion under prog. A simple review for this album would be "the bass playing is amazing."

Eagle I Stallian - Reminiscence EP
Review by Gary Hill
Reviewing something like this isn't exactly the easiest thing.


More
The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers - No Glory
Review by Gary Hill

I was expecting gospel music here. For the most part that's not what you get.


More
Echo Sparks - Ghost Town Girl
Review by Gary Hill
This is a cool disc. It combines folk music, country and more to create something probably best described as roots music or Americana.

More
EdTang and the Chops - EdTang and the Chops EP
Review by Gary Hill
Roots rock and Americana are the basic styles represented here.

More
D. Edward - Love Is
Review by Gary Hill
This album is made up by a set of modern pop songs with a lot of classic sound built into them.



More
Tyler Edwards - Too Young For Love
Review by Gary Hill
Folk music is one of the biggest influences on this set.

More
Joe Egan - Out of Nowhere (Vinyl Reissue)
Review by Gary Hill
This is a classy new vinyl reissue of the 1979 solo debut from Joe Egan. It’s a limited edition of only 1,000 copies and is pressed on 180 gram white vinyl.

More
Walter Egan - Myth America
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a mix of mellower tunes and more rocking ones.

More
The Electric Hellfire Club - Necessary Evils - The Best Of
Review by Gary Hill
I had heard of these guys, but I don't think I'd ever heard them before getting this CD. I had read that they were techno metal.

More
Electric Prunes - WaS
Review by Gary Hill
Between starting work on this album and getting it finished and released, Electric Prunes’ bassist Mark Tulin passed away.

More
Electric Soul Parade - New Horizons
Review by Gary Hill
It would seem that this would most likely appeal to fans of classic rock.

More
The Electro-Lights - Oddities and Contradictions
Review by Gary Hill
I really like this EP a lot. It’s got a great blend of punk, hard rock, stoner metal and Americana.

More
Elf - Elf
Review by Gary Hill
Although he was credited under his birth name (Ronald Padavona), the lead singer on this album was Ronnie James Dio.

More
Elf - Trying to Burn the Sun
Review by Gary Hill
This new reissue is quite cool. Don't expect to hear the kind of stuff Dio did in his solo career.


More
Elf - Carolina County Ball
Review by Gary Hill
Here we have a reissue of the 1974 release from Elf.

More
Skylar Elise - Skylar Elise EP
Review by Gary Hill
Skylar Elise can certainly sing. One would think that no matter her age.

More
Pablo Embon - Wicked Strings
Review by Gary Hill
While for the most part this is all jazz, there is quite a bit of range here.

More
Vicky Emerson - Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool set. It’s modern pop music with a lot of classic sound and without any annoying modern pop cliché’s built into it.

More
Vicky Emerson - Steady Heart
Review by Gary Hill

This brand new release from Vicky Emerson is classy stuff. Not only is her voice strong enough to really carry this, but the song writing, instrumental work, production and all make this an exceptional set.


More
Empty County Band - Die Alone
Review by Gary Hill

This four song EP is an intriguing set. The mix of sounds here ranges across near heavy metal, southern rock, psychedelia and even punk.


More
EndAnd - Mechanics & Energetics of Stilt-Running
Review by Gary Hill
Punk can be a monolithic musical style.

More
The Energy - When We Were Young
Review by Gary Hill
This hard rocking set is very effective.

More
Enuff Z'nuff - 10
Review by Gary Hill
Enuff Z’nuff really knows how to make killer hard edged pop music with great retro leanings. On this, their tenth CD, they continue that tradition in fine form.
More
Enuff Z'nuff - Paraphenalia
Review by Gary Hill
Showcasing potent pop/rock sensibilities and Beatles influences throughout, this is a very strong showing from this band. Its catchy melodies and intriguing arrangements should please most rock music fans.
More
Enuff Z'nuff - Covered in Gold
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always liked Enuff Z’Nuff. So, I was looking forward to this new album of covers.

More
Richard Tyler Epperson - Hourglass
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a satisfying release. Overall it lands somewhere in the mellow pop rock style of artists like John Mayer.

More
Ese - All In
Review by Gary Hill
The music on this disc is raw punk rock. It’s high energy, full of angst and very tasty.

More
David Essex - David Essex
Review by Gary Hill
This reissue of David Essex’ self-titled debut rather surprised me.

More
David Essex - All the Fun of the Fair
Review by Gary Hill
This new reissue from David Essex is pretty cool. I don’t think I like it as much as some of his other albums.

More
David Essex - Rock On
Review by Gary Hill
I’d have to say that most people in the Western world have probably heard the title track to this album.

More
Natalie Estes - 20/20 Vision
Review by Gary Hill
This EP is great. It's more or less modern female fronted pop music, at least as a general heading.

More
Sevi Ettinger - Salty Water EP
Review by Gary Hill

Sevi Ettinger is 15 years old. That's important to remember when listening to this EP. It means that she's just beginning to develop as an artist. 


More
Eve To Adam - Auburn Slip
Review by Mike Korn
Eve To Adam make their debut with "Auburn Slip", and it's apparent that they have skill and talent beyond that of most rookie bands. The four New York transplants, led by the Greek-American Sassaris brothers, have a very polished hard rock sound that should appeal to those into bands like Tool, Creed and other modern alt-rock groups.
More
Nik Everett - Music
Review by Gary Hill
While this isn’t the most original or unique music you are likely to hear, it is quite effective.

More
Everlost US - Live and Let Go
Review by Gary Hill
This new set is an intriguing alternative rock album. It's fairly short with only seven songs.


More
The Everydays - The Everydays
Review by Gary Hill
This North Carolina duo really makes you feel like they came from a bygone era.

More
The Everydays - When It’s All Over
Review by Gary Hill
The mix between folk and country here is fairly balanced. Some songs land nearly in one camp or the other.

More
Ezla - Outcasts
Review by Gary Hill
This sort of pop music tends toward being over-produced. While this isn't immune, it fares better than a lot of stuff out there does.
