Superb album, well done guys (and girl)!
A little bit more quiet and melancholic album this time, no problem! This is an excellent album with only good songs and not a single exception.
Best tracks: Punch Drunk Grinning Soul, Us Of Lesser Gods
2.Mark Lind and the Unloved - The Truth Can Be Brutal
I must say this album was quite a pleasant surprise for me this year! I found out Mark was recording through the video for 'New Year's Day', which is a very good song so I was quite stoked. When I listened the whole album for the first time I concluded that it is very good. This is more Ducky Boys than Mark's solo albums.
Best tracks: Wolves, Coke&Jack
3.AC/DC - Black Ice
Very decent AC/DC album, in my opinion up there with my personal favorites: The Razor's Edge and Flick Of The Switch.
As was pointed out by a number of people, the album is somewhat repetitive. I agree, but that is AC/DC. Same goes for Motorhead. I dont mind, you know what you are going to get. On the other hand this one is much better than the last two:
Stiff Upper Lip and Ballbreaker.
Best tracks: Decibel, Anything Goes
4.The Living End - White Noise
Good album. I must admit that I hadn't listened to them in some time, but this album pulled them a bit higher on my playlist :)
Best tracks: Listen Up Suzie, Hey Hey Disbeliever, Make The Call
5.Motorhead - Motorizer
Nice familiar Motorhead, I think I like the previous album better.
Best tracks: When The Eagle Screams, The Thousand Names Of God
6.Less Than Jake - GNV FLA
Yes, they're back!
Best tracks: Does The Lion City Still Roar?, Abandon Ship
7.Mr. Irish Bastard - The Bastard Brotherhood
Someone described these guys as the German Flogging Molly, I think German Pogues suits them better, they are quite similar, but absolutely not mimicking them. This is another decent and fun album.
Best Tracks: Walk With Me, Christmas In Hell
8.The Welch Boys - Drinkin Angry
I was very stoked for this one, because I like the first album very much, but it did disappoint me. Just not a lot of memorable tracks and some tend to go on to long without variation, maybe this will change with some more listens. Lesser track: Route Irish.
Best Tracks: Police Dog, Pervert, Ambulance Ride
9.Sabaton - The Art of War
Only recently discovered and I can already welcome a new album. Decent album, apart from the very annoying quotes at the beginning of each track!! Quotes as separate tracks: fine. But this is not cool.
Best Tracks: Union, The Price Of A Mile
10.Gaelic Storm - What's The Rumpus?
Another decent album from these guys, with quite a bit instrumental tracks. :)
Best Tracks: Don't Let The Truth Get In The Way, Floating The Flambeau
