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 […]

Thankfully this isn’t the case with this release, having Mike Freeland of Praying Mantis on vocal duties. My first […]
Review: Jon Oliva – Raise The Curtain AFM Records (June 21st 2013) Reviewer: Dan Mann I was waiting with some eagerness for this first solo album from Jon Oliva, having been a fan of his work for more years than I’d care to mention. For those of you unfamiliar with the name (shame on you) […]
