Loud Hailer, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck’s first studio album in six years, combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn’t shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, “I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.”

The organ as it’s never been heard before!

JD Allen’s previous recording Americana won widespread critical acclaim for it’s ground breaking melodic and harmonic explorations and for its impressive emotional intensity. While that album presented Allen’s ideas with a somewhat contemplative hand, Radio Flyer moves with a more unbridled enthusiasm, testing the possibilities jazz has for individual expressionism and improvisational freedom. With guitarist Liberty Ellman on hand the quartet presents Allen’s seven original compositions bristling with energy while maintaining a cohesive, comprehensive unity of thought and purpose. Radio Flyer exalts in freedom, and does so with the acknowledgment of the dangers. Improvise, Allen and his cohorts insist we all must, but never at the expense of losing the goal. In-the-moment self-expression can be life sustaining, but beauty is not to be its sacrifice.

Iggy Pop, known for pioneering punk attitude with his band The Stooges, released his second solo album Lust for Life in collaboration with David Bowie in 1977, combining Bowie’s experimental darkness with Iggy Pop’s raucous rock and roll flavour for some of the best-loved proto-punk of the 1970s.

Heart was pretty much considered washed up when they released Heart in 1985. They learned a few important things while they had taken a short sabbatical – they knew that hooks were important and they knew they could play up their looks for MTV. So, they delivered both with Heart, giving their audience anthemic hooks and tightly corseted bosoms, leading to the most popular album they ever had. This doesn’t mean it’s the best, since its calculated mainstream bent may disarm some long-term fans, but it is true that they do this better than many of their peers, not just because they have good polished material from professional songwriters but because they can deliver this material professionally themselves. Yes, “These Dreams,” “Never,” and “What About Love” don’t quite fit into the classic Heart mode, but they are good mid-’80s mainstream material, delivered as flawlessly as possible. There’s still a lot of filler on this record, but the best moments are among the best mainstream AOR of its era.
