For most artists recording a Christmas record is a convenient stop-gap in between releasing new material. In Peter Cetera's case this doesn't ring true as it has been a while since we last heard from one of soft rock's most distinctive crooners. You Just Gotta Love Christmas brings to the table everything you'd expect from a Peter Cetera record: lush, pleasant arrangements with crisp, warm, polished production and able musicanship from a crew of veteran session players. It's a mix of holiday favorites mixed in with a few originals and some guest appearances from Alison Krauss and Peter's daughter Claire; who is more than up to the task of singing with her father on two of the album's 12 tracks. Cetera and Chicago fans will no doubt enjoy having this on in the background during the holidays.
""Rather than make a traditional covers record, I thought it would be much more fun to create a new type of project in which artists communicated with each other and swapped a song for a song, i.e. you do one of mine and I'll do one of yours, hence the title - Scratch My Back - And I'll Scratch Yours." Peter Gabriel

Rob Rock is back with his fourth solo album, Garden of Chaos. After being a fantastic, yet often under recognized pieces of some memorable metal releases over the years (Joshua, Angelica, Impellitteri, Avantasia, Warrior, and Axel Rudi Pell), Rob is finally starting to make a name for himself as a solo artist. Garden of Chaos intertwines many influences from Rob's previous work, while staying on course with the heavier direction that Holy Hell paved. Compared to Holy Hell, this album is more melodic, and features a more distinct 80's feel and sound. Of course, the mixing and production are top notch and very up to date, yet the guitar tone has a classic, 80's metal sound that is a natural and comfortable sound for Rob.
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Rob Booker Live event in Orlando, FL. The weekend consisted of Rob and 6 of his trading friends.
