 FIREBUG "NO RETURN" 2022  NO RETURN - The title track opens this album with a storming introduction.  With elements of Progressive and Classic Rock interspersed with a variety of vocals from lead singer Juliette Tworsey, this is a mega anthemic rocker.   TRAIL THAT NEVER ENDS (CELESTIAL TRAVELER) - A haunting vocal fronts a typical 70s Progressive Rock style with an Eastern flavour.  At the 3 and a half minute mark the song ends with a crescendo of crashing Classic Rock drums and guitars remind me a little of Rush.  Another gem. MOMENT OF JOY - Unusually kicking off with a slight Jazz feel the track soon moves into cool Blues and Rock 'n Roll territory.  It ends with a little 60s Psychedelia!  CHANGE - This is an arena sized ballad, Firebug style.  Powerful vocals again from Juliette over a Classic 80s Rock vibe, reminscent of Heart.  A favourite of mine. ONLY THE LUCKY - A minimal Acoustic track with a style that is similar to The Animals' "House of the Risin


FIREBUG "WANDERING SOUL"   2018     FOLLOWER - The opening track sounds like a ZZ Top/90s Grunge hybrid.  Awesome Blues Rock guitars and drums backing with vocalist Juliette Tworsey's snarling vocals akin to someone like PJ Harvey make this a stomping intro!     SINNER - Classic 70s style Rock with slight hints of Blues and Country and also Progressive Rock.  A bit of everything make this a great track. WINE, WATER AND BREAD - One of my favourites by the band, a Blues Rock slow tempo tune with hints of 60s and 70s Psychedelic leanings.  Superb track.     WANDERING SOUL - The title track reminds me a little of Paloma Faith, an almost funky Jazz/Blues style midtempo jam that emphasises the creativity of the band to sample many genres. THE RIVER - Early 70s Progressive Rock takes centre stage here with hints of hippie style Psychedelia effects and echoes.  Experimental and is almost like early Heart or Fleetwodd Mac. FOOL LI
