Gorillaz – Humanz (Deluxe Edition) Album Review

It barely feels like the 7 years it’s been since Gorillaz released their previous album Plastic Beach, or 6 if you include The Fall, but they’re back with what’s been aimed as a disco club album according to Damon Albarn, that we will see. If lead single Saturnz Barz didn’t tempt your curiosity enough, we’reContinue reading “Gorillaz – Humanz (Deluxe Edition) Album Review”

Tom Chaplin – The Wave (Deluxe Edition) Review

Following from his days in Keane, lead singer Tom Chaplin has decisively chosen to release his first debut solo album, sparking a collection of new challengers for the singer, including writing and producing an album for the first time, something previously done by Keane pianist Tim Rice-Oxley, who himself has made efforts outside of KeaneContinue reading “Tom Chaplin – The Wave (Deluxe Edition) Review”

David Bowie – Blackstar Album Review

No one quite defines the definitions of unique, inspiring, more in the world of music than David Bowie.

Whilst like any album, Blackstar does have it’sContinue reading “David Bowie – Blackstar Album Review”

Everything Everything – Get In Heaven Album Review

It doesn’t seem that long since we were reviewing the second album by Everything Everything, Arc, but here we are again with this, their third and from what we’re hearing so far, it’s going down as one of our favourites, Get to Heaven.

Hurts – Some Kind of Heaven Single Review

Following up from the darker sounding 2010 debut ‘Happiness’ and 2013’s ‘Exile‘, Hurts are now back with what sounds like a slight change of direction, at least at first, with their new single ‘Some Kind of Heaven’. Whilst at first Some Kind of Heaven sounds rather cheap, with it’s rather over-commercial heritage, after quite a few listensContinue reading “Hurts – Some Kind of Heaven Single Review”

Take That – III (Deluxe Edition) Album Review

Take That may now be less of a group, more a trio at the moment, but that hasn’t stopped the band making a whole new album, III, for us all to enjoy.

Coldplay – Ghost Stories Album Review

Coldplay were living in paradise with their last release, Mylo Xyloto, back in 2011, featuring both a number 1 album and single, which is actually a surprising rarity for a band of Coldplay’s popularity. But, after the success of Mylo Xyloto, the tour it proceeded and a collaboration with Rihanna, the band simply disappeared, but nowContinue reading “Coldplay – Ghost Stories Album Review”

Embrace – Embrace Album Review

We’ve had waits in our time, but Embrace definitely took the cake, a full 8 year wait since their last 2006 release, This New Day, which as well as including that England World Cup track, it also saw Embrace create their highest single charts position at Number 2 with the single ‘Nature’s Law’! But it wasn’tContinue reading “Embrace – Embrace Album Review”

Damon Albarn is impossible.

Despite albums been released previously withContinue reading “Damon Albarn – Everyday Robots Album Review”

Mark Owen – The Art of Doing Nothing Album Review

Mark Owen may not be the first name you think about when you think of solo careers, heck maybe not the first name you think of with the name Take That, but with ‘The Art of Doing Nothing’, Mark Owen is certainly going to try to losen the attention from members Gary Barlow and RobbieContinue reading “Mark Owen – The Art of Doing Nothing Album Review”

Attic Lights are back, after some label shake ups after their debut ‘Friday Night Lights’ (Island Records), Super De Luxe (Elefant) is their follow up, and if lead single ‘Say You Love Me’ is anything, it’s showing us that this is one album not to miss.
