A pop album!
Review of A-List - A1 by lorriellah

Advantages: A few good tracks, they can sing well(mostly)
Disadvantages: Some really poor tracks!

Recently I have been revisiting some of my old music thanks to the likes of The Big Reunion on TV. One thing I found amazing was that I haven't listened to any songs from the bands that appeared on the show for about 10 years yet when clips of the bands p ... Read review

Love, Death Immortality - 24/7 Shudders
Review of Love Death Immortality - Glitch Mob (The) by Zurlock

Advantages: Most Songs Are Unique, Amazing Art, Incredible Quality
Disadvantages: One or Two songs are bland, repetitive music videos.

Review of Home (Parental Advisory) [PA] - Rudimental by CosmicLove

Advantages: Original, catchy, nice variety of artists

Modus Operandi - Definition - A particular way method or formula of doing something - This is exactly what Rupert Parke's had in mind when he released this album. A distillation of an ideal concept. This is Parkes Modus Operandi quite literally, in sound ... Read review

Advantages: Originality, still sounds fresh,unique,atmospheric,melodic
Disadvantages: needs remastering sound volume low on CD, Artwork very basic no sleeve notes whatsoever

After enjoying this record for a long time (I first heard it in 1997) I felt the urge to revisit it and put my thoughts and unbiased opinions down here. So backtrack to 1997 I was not long out of School, and now at art college, a friend bought in a mix t ... Read review

Advantages: Long tracks, Experimental, genre hopping styles,crossover tunes. melodic, eclectic
Disadvantages: Moaner

After a three year hiatus the trio came back as a duo, when Darren Emerson took his leave to go into boring generic house DJing. Many thought that this would be the death knell for the group and Emerson was the creative force behind them. That was not the ... Read review
