Album Review: Dolly Parton – Rockstar

Rockstar, shortly announced after Dolly’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame took myself, and most of the music world by surprise. Having initially declined the honor of nomination, Dolly took it upon herself to record an album of rock songs so that it would be more appropriate for her nomination, and subsequent induction, to the RARHOF.

Review: Baroness – Stone

Since their debut album Red in 2007, Baroness has risen as one of the top sludge metal bands. Constantly building upon their past efforts, Gold & Grey, their 2019 effort, was their most confident and well-rounded material. After four years of waiting, they have put out one of their most compelling albums.

Review: Avatar – Dance Devil Dance

Avatar, over the years, has proven to be a band that doesn’t just sit on its laurels. Dance Devil Dance is a testament to this. Over the last decade and a half, the band has accrued quite an interesting and dedicated fanbase, and with each album, they’ve pushed for a different sound or further experimentation. This time around, they move forward by looking a bit to the past.
