The Vatican appears rocked alongside scandal and resignations fair as church leaders necessity trappings up to make good on frail Pope Benedict XVI. The Vatican today appears rocked close to licenti

The album is called Wake Up! It does include some light prog rock along with speeches' excerpts.

Chris, is there such an album? Maybe we should get Alun onto the case. He loves those oddball albums.

Performance enhancing aspect....never did much for me.

Like Froome, my 5k and 10k times are now in doubt, as it seems I took too many puffs of my inhaler before the races.In all seriousness it sounds pretty odd that an inhaler used by millions has such an

Can’t believe Pope Francis 2015 release, Wake Up, has not been reviewed yet here at GDM?

Man, I really thought Froome was above any doubt, but this will always hang like a shadow now. Damn! Unlikely to win Sports Personality of the Year on the Beeb now too.

Look what happened when the Pope signed to Infinity? Brought the company down and certainly ruined TKO's career. Brad Sinsel probably not a fan.

Oh dear, Chris Froome in a doping scandal. This looks bad.

This release follows a cracking EP released at the back end of 2016. It saw the band fully embrace their influences (which was by and large the sound of early 70's Queen), the Geishas have now released their full debut album which sees four tracks from the earlier EP re-recorded as well as seven new originals. Here they turn the Queen influence up a notch but also giving a nod to the likes of the late David Bowie too, which all adds up to a quite spectacular album.

The Songs
The aforementioned four tracks from the earlier EP are, to my mind a major improvement. It seems as if the band have had the time to fully expand their ideas and give them all a new lease of life (not that the originals were shabby in any way!). As for the new tracks on offer, 'Terradio' is terrific, dedicated to David Bowie, and comes complete with samples from the Bowie flick 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' and is quite simply stunning, with a supreme vocal performance and some tasty guitar histrionics too. The band do at times let up a little from the full on hard hitting for instance on the sultry 'Onda De Choque' which is a cool, laid back song with a delightful vocal performance to hammer the point home. I must say at this point at no time does the South American Spanish vocals get in the way, I reckon they just give the whole thing a unique exoticness. Everything on here, in truth is superbly put together with imaginative arrangements and some sensational guitar work from Cesar Barabino being the star of the show. The rest of the guys are no slouches either, a rock solid rhythm section underpins the whole album admirably and it's all topped off with the semi operatic vocals of Matías Merçeauroix. Quite wonderful.

In Summary
For someone who's a little long in the tooth like me to get excited about an album is quite something these days, but these boys know how to flick all the right switches. Yes, they wear their Queen influences proudly on their sleeves, but their take on it is somehow different. It could be that their South American approach/sensibilities are different, but I think these guys are really special. This is an album that deserves your attention, and then some. I may have only lived with this for a few weeks but my Album of the Year? You bet. The album is already out there on You Tube courtesy of the band, but a physical release is expected in the New Year.
