DECEMBER ROUNDUP

McBusted – McBusted: There’s no denying it. Busted and McFly were ace in their day. Busted split many moons ago with Charlie Simpson forming the rather top, heavy outfit Fightstar. ‘Radio:ACTIVE’ by McFly is a… Continue reading

NOVEMBER ROUNDUP

Damien Rice – My Favourite Faded Fantasy: I, along with many others, had pretty much forgotten about Mr. Rice as it’s taken him eight years to write, record and release his third album. But man… Continue reading

OCTOBER ROUNDUP

NehruvianDOOM – NehruvianDOOM: To have someone as revered as MF DOOM team up with one of the best young rappers in Bishop Nehru and this awkward 32 minute album be the outcome is quite disappointing. There’s… Continue reading

APRIL ROUNDUP

Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else: Attack on Memory is one of the best albums I’d heard in years back in 2012. And it still is. With practically everyone on the planet… Continue reading

MARCH ROUNDUP

Rick Ross – Mastermind: Remaking a Biggie song in the form of ‘Nobody (feat. French Montana & Puff/Puff Daddy/Sean John/Puffy/P. Diddy/Diddy and now back to Puff Daddy) was a ballsy move. And it’s actually… Continue reading
