H.E.A.T – Live in London Ear Music (Feb 2015) Reviewer: Peter Scallan In melodic rock/AOR terms H.E.A.T should need no introduction as they are constantly appearing on festival bills, clubs and theatres all over the place. If you are into this genre of music and you haven’t heard them, where have you been hiding? After […]
Buck & Evans – Live At Rockfield Reviewer: Dan Mann I’m going to start by saying I am biased when it comes to this band. Absolutely love them. After hearing one track from their debut EP, I promptly shot over to their website and bought it. Since then we’ve had ‘RN2R live in Arizona‘ and […]

Having been a long-time fan of the band and Steve Overland’s since seeing Wildlife support MSG too many years ago, […]
Moritz vocalist Peter Scallan will be joining the team here at RPR as a reviewer. We’d like to wish Peter a very warm welcome and look forward to reading his reviews.
Jimmy Barnes – Hindsight Reviewer: Dan Mann Well there is no mistaking who’s singing from the outset. Not that there was going to be any doubt on that front, with Jimmy Barnes having one of the most recognisable voices in rock. It’s staggering to think its 30 years since Jimmy left Cold Chisel. To quote […]
Daylight Robbery – Falling Back To Earth Reviewer: Dan Mann It’s great to finally get to listen to not only new material from Daylight Robbery, but their second album no less. I really enjoyed the band’s first album ‘Cross Your Heart’ and their performance at the inaugural HRH AOR in Rotherham went down well with […]
