Frank Schonberg – This Is Home

Frank Schonberg – This is Home

Since i usually don’t do reviews of Country albums, this is kinda special for me since this is my first. It was the aunt of the artist, Reidun Hommeldal, that shared this with me and i was so impressed that i had to do a little piece about it.

“This is home” by Frank Schonberg has a genuinely happy flow about it that puts me in a good mood.  So check it out guys.  If you like Pop country, you will definitively like this album,  I rated it 5 on iTunes myself.

This is where you can get you hands on the album,  Now GO!!!

Rover – The Illumination Review

Rover – The Illumination :

I got sent the links to Rovers Debut Album “The Illumination” a while back by Fredrik Schumacher of Lighthouse booking. Took me a while, but here is my review of the album :

First of all, i love the way the tracks in “The Illumination” have a sort of progressive sense to it. kinda like a story unfolding. This is the way i believe all albums should be laid out, plain and simple. It gets a bit more personal that way;)

When i heard the intro, It struck me, “this reminds me of Sci-fi.” And i love Sci-fi, among other things. This made me want to listen to the whole thing.  And the tracks keeps playing for the duration. and i love each and every one of the tracks. When the last song fades out, it leaves me a bit sad, and wanting for something more, and more, and more.  I just can’t wait for the next installment from Rover to come out, whenever that will be. :D And so will you after you have listened to the album, just as i have ;)

Well don’t take my word for the superb quality of “The Illumination“.

Give it a listen yourself on Spotify, or download it here on iTunes.
