While 2016 has been another fantastic year for music so far, it has been relatively thin in terms of great rock albums. There certainly has been no shortage of psychedelic records that have blown us away, but the same couldn’t be said for some classic, guitar-driven rock albums.

Regardless of my wife’s reaction, Shopping‘s debut […]
