Nameless Path by Marcus Foster

Album Review:

We like to feature the diamond in the rough from time to time and looking over the list of $5.00 offerings think we have on in Nameless Path by Marcus Foster. Released in 2011, Nameless showcases the talents of this UK artists and his ability to mix blues, folk, and alternative rock with some character. One of the best ways to experience it for yourself is to take a quick listen to the samples and see if his music strike a chord.

Album Review:

What began as a worship band near Baylor University in hopes of getting more students to attend services and steadily grown and created some of the most interesting Christian Music through combining unconventional instruments and elements with powerful and inspirational messages. While they disbanded in 2012 with David Crowder performing solo as Crowder, you can have many of the band’s best on All This For A King: The Essential Collection including How He Loves, O Praise Him (All This For A King), After All (Holy), Everything Glorious, This I Know, and nine more.

Patch The Sky by Bob Mould

Album Review:

It’s nice to see some recent releases find their way onto the $5.00 album list. Bob Mould (founding member of rock bands Hüsker Dü and Sugar) has been performing for over 35 years and his latest solo release Patch The Sky from Merge Records serves as the last album in a trilogy with Silver Age (Available for $9.49), and Beauty & Ruin (Available for $9.49). Originally considering writing an acoustic release, Bob Mould created an album with a darker tone and at times reminds me of the driving songs of the Foo Fighters. If you like good old Alternative rock , take a listen to this new gem from one of the best.

Greatest Hits by Heart

Album Review:

It would be difficult to think of great women in Rock without thinking about the Wilson sisters of Heart. These hall of fame rockers have some great hits from the 70s including Barracuda, Crazy On You, Straight On, Magic Man, Heartless, Dog & Butterfly, and more. While you won’t find their hits from the late eighties or more recent, this Greatest Hits collection has some great ones and is currently one of the many $5 albums available on Amazon.

Schindler’s List (Soundtrack) by John Williams

Album Review:

John Williams is one of the greatest movie score composers of our time with dozens great soundtracks to his credit including Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park to name a few. Schindler’s List was the 1993 Academy Award winner for Best Original Score and with it proved that he was more than just great marches and title themes. The violins create a musical emotion and it is truly deserving of it’s high 4.8 star review. Be sure to look over the list of $5 albums for other great albums.
