The Steve Adamyk Band - Forever Won't Wait LP - Clear Vinyl (/200) & Black Vinyl & CD
Here it is, at long last. The best album of 2011. I loved the first Steve Adamyk Band LP. It totally took over the 2nd half of 2010 and I played that record time and time again. With such lofty expectations for the follow-up, it would have been extremely easy to be disappointed. I can genuinely say that Forever Won't Wait is just as good as the band's last album, and even better in places. Steve & Co have mastered cramming songs with amazing hooks, and you would be hard pressed to find any band that uses harmonies and backing vocals more effectively in 2011. I cannot impress upon you enough that this is the 1 record you must own this year. Don't get me wrong, 2011 has given out some great, great records; but The Steve Adamyk Band sits at the very top of the pile. There are a few bonus tracks on the CD, I would have preferred them on the vinyl, but I guess they are getting their own separate release on another label.
