Best Rock Album Winner

April 2018 winner for Best Rock Album – ‘Ten Days to Burn it Down’.

“A masterpiece of despairing rock, ‘Ten Days To Burn It Down’ is marked by original instrumental skills – and the sheer creative range of the production itself; listen to the steadily metered title track and you’ll be a Paul Bibbins convert.

Best Blues Rock Song Winner

“July 2015 winner for Best Blues/Rock song – ‘Stone Cold Monday’. “With a millennium of experimentation already in the rear view mirror it’s almost impossible to develop original licks. Yet, by the divine sanction of Hendrix it has been done here, creating one of the most hard-hitting blues songs we’ve heard this year.”

Recording Magazine Review

“Rarely have we heard a more complete union of programming and live playing. Capturing the loose, wild drum style of a Mitch Mitchell or Ginger Baker is a daunting task under the best of circumstances. With all respect to the BOSS DR-880, for a guitarist to pull this off on any drum machine shows some crazy talent in our opinion. Not only are the tones superior (listen to the cymbals!) but the drum balance, especially on the tom fills, is stellar. Simply put, this may well be the finest example of drum programming that we have heard in our 16-plus years authoring the Readers’ Tapes column. Fortunately for us, Paul is also a damn fine player. The electric guitar is aggressive, with just enough grit to carry it in the trio format. Paul really seems to understand the dual roles of playing that this genre requires, switching effortlessly between rhythm and lead.”
