Album Notes
Some comments of people who already heard EXPECTED ERRORS:
-- Steve has totally nailed it with this album. Every time I listen to it I'm stunned at how well written, arranged and played it is. It's really a fantastic achievement.
-- Listening to it evoked great imagery. It's as if you took the intensity of Dimebag Darrell and the majesty of Brian May, melted it in a forge, then dipped your fingers in it!
-- Great chops, great tunes, great playing...LOVE your guitar tone, dude, just stellar overall crunch....but nice and warm....Easily among my favorite purchases this year!
-- This is a killer CD, man. Excellent, excellent instrumental melodic hard rock.....I am hooked after just one listen.
Steve Brockmann, born 1965 near Hamburg, Germany, has played an active role in Northern Germany's music scene since the early 80s. Being the creative head of various bands, he played gigs on many stages between Germany's most popular holiday island Sylt up in the very North and the orchards of Lower Saxony. Among other, he played support gigs for rock legends such as Uriah Heep, Moody Marsden Band, and Hawkwind.

After having spent some time roaming the North and living his Rock 'n' Roll road movie, today Steve mainly concentrates on the work on his various projects in his studio.

David Gilmour would be proud
Wow! This album is every bit as epic as a floyd album. Great work!!! There are no errors on " expected errors" that is for sure. David Gilmour would be proud of the amazing guitar on this album. Nice work Steve!!!!

Newbie to Prog Rock... LOVING this album!
Wow.... I just discovered this album and also the "prog rock" genre as a whole. I'm loving it. Musically it's very tight and full of energy, great background music for when you're hanging out - with friends or alone. As it plays, I subconsciously start nodding my head or drumming my hands on the table. I've been listening to it while working and it's helped me focus... though occasionally during more dramaitic moments I'll start rocking out and playing the air drums... haha. But beyond the sheer musicality of it, I think I like it because it seems to tell a story without using words. There's a depth to it that's hard to describe, as though the music is a soundtrack for a movie. I actually have a hard time believing that it's not. And that's really my main point here, and what I think is this album's strength - there's a fully realized sense of drama/storyline that drives the music. The world this album presents is complete, like a good novel, and because of the strength of the storytelling everything inside its world exists for a reason, and nothing feels missing.

Like I said, I'm new to the prog rock world. So take this review as a careful listeners first forray into what I suspect is an intimate, well-defined world. I'm not sure how much of this would apply to other prog rock albums/artists, but I do know that as a newbie I've found Mr. Brockman's Expected Errors a very accessible and enjoyable album to listen to... Thank you, sir, for introducing me to the genre! Now, on to further listening...

Steves musicianship and creativity ranks with the best!!
If you admire ENERGETIC, ROCKING creative music that catches your attention and rock tastes, and crave- SUPERB guitar prowess and terrific songwritng ability in all flavors and Quality. Then this is The CD FOR YOU!! All the elements of great music are here. Its intrumental character is so good you - forget about its lack of screeching repeative singing and poorly imaginative lyrics, because the music SINGS to you in its own way. From its seering guitar riffs to the bluesy soulful cradle of its ballad like passages, the sensible cost of this "Expected Errors" CD gives you double the bang for your buck. And there is no cutbacks on production quality here!! Turn it up and feel the music cover you in all your music g-spots!! This is a 5 Star music purchase!!!!

"Expected Errors" IS an entertaining, enjoyable and accessable album!!
Guitarist Steve Brockmann hails from Northern Germany, and is very active in the music scene there. His latest studio offering is "Expected Errors", an 11-track totally instrumental affair. But if you think this is gonna be a bunch of endless noodling over canned tracks, THINK AGAIN! As a musician and songwriter, Steve is a model of restraint, cutting loose when needed, holding back when necessary. Sure, he can burn up the fretboard like there`s no tomorrow, but Steve`s a song guy, crafting instrumentals that are memorable and don`t require a degree in music theory to enjoy. Not an easy task, but Steve is MORE than up to the challenge, believe me! It should be noted that Steve not only wrote ALL the songs, he played all the instruments, mixed the album AND did all the artwork, as well! [wonder if he does windows, too?] Unlike other one-man bands, however, the level of quality control is VERY high and there`s no self-indulgent wankery to be found here. Doubtless a lot of time and care went into the arrangements, and it shows in every single track. It`s obvious that one of Steve`s primary influences is Brian May, as can be heard in the soaring guitar harmonies. Shades of Pink Floyd also abound; in fact, Steve`s tone and delivery remind me at times of David Gilmour`s playing on "Animals", though there`s also high-tech Metal shredding to satisfy Shred-Heads everywhere. This guy is HARDLY a "jack of all trades, master of none"! While it`s not a technique freak`s wet dream, "Expected Errors" IS an entertaining, enjoyable and accessable album that can be appreciated by ALL music fans, which is no mean feat for an instrumental release. But in the hands of artists like Steve Brockmann, it`s all in a days work. So please visit Steve`s website and pick up his releases; we DEFINITELY need more musicians like him, and your continued support will make certain that we do! [Great job, Steve!]

Very good stuff!
Nice instrumental rock, think Kansas meets Dixie Dregs with no violin. Not a bad song on the cd.
