This is our monthly Best of What's Hot?! YouTube Playlist, highlighting the best music videos of the previous month.

The Stranger – Kaleidoscope

I hope these guys are planning their next album. They have bags of potential and I can’t wait to see what else they have in their locker.

RPWL_GodHasFailed_LiveAndPersonal

RPWL – God Has Failed – Live and Personal

This is a valid addition to the RPWL catalogue. Time and experience has allowed the original ideas to mature, and the subtle changes made only go to enhance what was a worthy debut album all those years ago.

Caligonaut - Magnified as Giants Cover

Caligonaut – Magnified as Giants

This album, whilst complex in its segments remains overall accessible to the listener as it weaves between classic prog, whilst maintaining a modern feel which together never ages or dates this release. It’s much like meeting a long-lost friend you haven’t seen for years, but they have come of age in the intervening years and are all the better for it.

Michael Whalen - Future Shock cover

Michael Whalen – Future Shock

To sum everything up, the album is fantastic, you have to get a taste of that “Future Shock” yourself to truly see the picture I’m trying to paint in this short review!
