Robin Trower is one of those hot and cold musicians that goes under the radar for years before anyone looks back and realizes what he really did. The more I learn about music the more I amazed at the number of quality musicians that get no recognition.
I picked up Los Lobotomys thinking I was going to get some new inspiration and was disappointed. I thought it would be fresh but it's just rehashed fusion from 30 years ago. It's probably new to the youngsters but I was raised on that stuff. I'll give it another chance. Maybe I missed something.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Long walk to Freedom - African music (These were they buys that worked with Paul Simon. I like the relaxing full tones of their voices. It's good acappella like Take 6 with a different flavor.
Dave Matthews - Weekend on the Rocks
System of a down - Hypnotize
Linkin Park - Meteora
Nickelback - (?)
