Why Audiophiles are Buying up Joel Hoesktra’s New Album:
Well, it’s not a coupon for GoDaddy. But one of the most popular records ordered on Audiophileimports.com over the last two years has been “13 – Dying to Live!” by Joel Hoesktra.
For audiophiles, Hoekstra’s rock-tunes are a dream come true. The album is full of collaborations with other artists, which means that you hear lots of classic sounding rock-tunes as well as contemporary riffs you would expect to hear from an emerging band of 19 year olds.
Hoekstra’s album is in the melodic rock sub-genre. Think ‘Dream Theatre’ (in fact Derek Sherinian of Dream Theatre guest stars on one track).
You also get acoustic tunes that really give your audio setup a true workout. The sheer number of guest vocalists and instrumental players makes each song feel like it’s its own sub-genre of rock.
Which means it’s an excellent rock album for discerning audiophiles.
