Nelson - 1990 After The Rain
At the time of release, this album was like a breath of fresh air, combining all the elements of an essential commercial melodic rock release primed for radio and crossover potential. And to a certain degree the band achieved this, with lots of press, articles, MTV clips, and favourable reviews.

Nelson - 1995 Because They Can
It took the best part of five years to see the release of the second Nelson album. 'Because They Can' was not the original scheduled second release (technically 'Imaginator' was), but due to 'politics' (for want of a better word) it saw the light of day first. This effort straddles the melodic rock and new country fence, and for what it's worth, I love it.

Nelson - 1997 Imaginator
In his foreward to the 1993 Kerrang! Book of Heavy Metal, Metallica's James Hetfield sarcastically japed that LA cock-rockers Ratt were positively thrash metal in comparison to the blond-haired fluff of Nelson. Hetfield wasn't the first to take such a cheap shot and may even have had a point, but when 'Imaginator' eventually surfaced (after four years on the shelf) in 1997, he wouldn't be the only one who had his prejudices contradicted by the so called 'Timotei Twins'. Because, quite simply, 'Imaginator' rocks. Big time.

Nelson - 1999 Life
What we get with 'Life' is a great mix of that 'After The Rain' era rock, which meets some of the hazy new country tinged material off 'Because They Can'.

Nelson - 2000 Interview with Gunnar Nelson
One half of the fabulous Nelson twins gets to reflect on life in the shadow of his famous father Rick, and the recent release of their 'Like Father Like Sons' album whereby Gunnar and brother Matthew play material from their fathers catalogue. Andrew Ellis also teazes out some interesting history of the band Nelson, and their rise through the ranks of Geffen Records ultimately onto their own label Stone Canyon. A great read.

Nelson - 2000 Like Father Like Sons
'Like Father Like Sons' is a poignant assertion of Nelson's past, present and future, and for true Nelson fans, it displays the roots from which the brothers sold three million records.

Nelson - 2010 Lightning Strikes Twice
If you're looking for a Nelson fix or something akin to 'After The Rain', then this is probably the album to do it. Not quite as polished as ATR, but that's to be expected, and this one has a little bit of dirt under the fingernails that gives it a rough edge.

Nelson - 2015 Peace Out
Most of us will remember 1970's wonderful 'After The Rain', and if push comes to shove, 'Peace Out' feels like a Part II extension from that debut.

Nelson, Yvette - 2000 All For The Sake Of Love
'All For The Sake Of Love' contains all the hallmarks of an increasingly common brand of country pop - airbrushed production combined with a formulaic mixed bag of ballads, mid tempo numbers and blatant pop rock with a few fiddles and slide guitars thrown in to please the hat-wearers.
