Within Temptation's 2004 album The Silent Force was the first record to feature Ruud Jolie on lead guitar. The Silent Force's first single "Stand My Ground" is a wonderful bombastic composition with impressive vocals and it stays true to the band's rocking sound. It stands as a masterful collection of songs, which still sounds fresh and versatile.

Australian post-grunge band Silverchair released their debut album Frogstomp when the band members were only 15 years of age. In just 9 days they recorded a fantastic album, in which they show that even young teenagers know how to rock.
Stealers Wheel was a successful Scottish folk rock band, which had a gigantic hit in 1973 with "Stuck in the Middle with You". One of the main figures in the band was Gerry Rafferty, known for his solo hits "Baker Street", "Right Down the Line" and "Night Owl". These songs, fan favorites and more gems can be found on the exclusive 2LP Gerry Rafferty & Stealers Wheel Collected.
Obituary's death metal debut album Slowly We Rot was a ground-breaking release at the end of the 1980s. As one of the pioneers of this genre, they created a heavy album where everything was monstrous. From their down-tuned guitar riffs, deep growls and moans and distinct tempo changes.
Serj Tankian's third solo album Harakiri is the most punk rock-oriented record he created since his days with System of a Down. Even a sudden interlude like “Occupied Tears” doesn't slow down the pace Tankian brings on the album.
Call Me By Your Name, the multiple-award-winning and critically acclaimed film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the novel by André Aciman. Guadagnino found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens' lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the soundtrack.
The American rock/metal band Alter Bridge found their way to a worldwide audience by releasing their debut album One Day Remains in 2004. In 2010 they released their third album AB III, a new venture in which they combined progressive metal and hard rock.
Cure for Pain is the second album by Morphine, originally released in 1993. The tracks "Sheila" and "In Spite of Me" were prominently featured on the soundtrack of the 1994 independent film Spanking the Monkey.
Good Times is the twentieth studio album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley. He recorded this ten-song album at the Stax studios in Memphis. His great voice is outstanding on both the rock & roll songs as when he's performing with a gospel choir.
Filles de Kilimanjaro (named after the Kilimanjaro African Coffee) is one the many masterpieces American composer and trumpeter Miles Davis recorded during his lifetime. It can be seen as a transitional album, right between his “acoustic” and “electric” period. He recorded this incredible work of modern jazz together with music great's such as Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Chick Corea.
Time is the brand new album by the Dutch band Kensington. To record the album, the band retreated to Canada, so they were able to focus on what it's all about for them: the music. From the period of looking back at what has happened so far in their career, Time emerged in the forests of Canada.
Moloko's third album Things to Make and Do marks a shift in the sound of the duo, with tracks more reliant on live musicians. The first single "The Time Is Now" became Moloko's biggest hit, peaking at number two in the UK. Roisin Murphy's singing style, combining a variety of voices and textures, is as impressive as ever before.
