Rocket Scientists release 'Supernatural Highways'

Rocket Scientists bring back a style of rock 'n' roll that has not been heard from in a while with their latest release Supernatural Highways. They have a sound that is grand, loud and feels like that of classic rock 'n' roll bands of the past like Queen.
Throughout the album, Rocket Scientists are not afraid to explore with their instruments to really create a full and engulfing sound that grabs the attention of fans within the first track.
The two songs that are featured on the album are grand and long in length. The first "Traveler on the Supernatural Highways" plays for over 26 minutes and in that time frame builds up to a grand finale. It is not often that a band would take such a risk and really take the time to explore a musical thought in such a grand and time consuming way.
Even though at times it feels like this song could have been broken up into smaller, more digestible pieces, it is nice to see a band really willing to take a risk and go with their own musical vision instead of fitting into what is already on the radio airwaves.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
