* The Watermen

11,000 Days

The Watermen's 11,000 Days is a solid album that will appeal to a mass audience. Ranging from pop rock to new country, the album is a excellent sophmore effort from this Moncton band consisting of veteran musicians Marc Little, Mike Gaudet, Clinton Fernandes, Tom Thompson, and Gilles Savoie.

Starting with the title track, the album is a slickly produced first rate collection of music that should help them gather a large following. Vocalist Marc Little sounds similar to Bryan Adams but still retains his own style. The rest of the band clearly has a polished sound that can only come from experience and good chemistry.

Recently signed to Prism Entertainment, this band has a bright future ahead of them. Highlights include "Long Road", "Immuned" and the title track "11,000 Days."

Eagles Of Death Metal: Heart On

Don't let the name fool you as this band wouldn't fall under the 'death metal' category, nor are they The Eagles.

This is actually a side project of Queens of the Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme with Jesse Hugues rounding out the two-piece act.

If an album could be judged by its cover and artwork, I would have to say there is a bit of tongue and cheek at play but the end result is a very solid album by two people having a good time.

Not quite as heavy or intricate as QOTSA 'Heart On,' this consists of short-but-sweet catchy songs with a bit of a blues thrown in for good measure.

This album should keep QOTSA fans' satisfied until a new album comes out.

Highlights include "Anything 'Cept the Truth", "Now I'm a Fool" and "Wannabe in L.A.

I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day

In this musical age of over-produced pop records and auto tune devices making vocalists out of anyone, it's nice to hear a record like Julie Doiron's new album 'I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day.'

With song titles like "The Life of Dreams" and "Glad To Be Alive", this is clearly an album of happy songs from an artist who seems to be reconnecting with her earlier electric days.

Recorded by former Eric's Trip bandmate Rick White, who also plays on most tracks, the album is a bit heavier than her earlier recordings but still manages to capture her signature sound. Highlights include "Spill Yer Lungs" and "Consolation Prize", but the album as a whole is a great listen.
