Review of North Borders - Bonobo by SirJoseph

Advantages: Instruments, Different, Chilled
Disadvantages: Mixed Tracks, Too Long, Background Noise Worthy

Bonobo Amidst playing card games with a college chum a couple of years ago, Electronica artist Bonobo came out of his Spotify playlist. That's not me recommending the music streaming app - I despise its adverts. So this chilled out, jazzy ... Read review

Stimulants, Tranquillisers, Hallucinogens or a mix of all three?
Review of Mezzanine - Massive Attack by SirJoseph

Advantages: Original, Timeless, Vocalists, Melodies, Rhymes, Atmospheric
Disadvantages: Too Dark? Monotonous Del Naja?

3-Methoxy-4-Methylamphetamine We've all heard at least one of the two singles released from this mammoth of an electronica album, whether you know it or not and yet Massive Attack still manages to hold a quiet reputation, at least amongst the ra ... Read review

"We're making monsters, Inject adrenalin, Fuel up with gasoline"
Review of Making Monsters - Combichrist by RobWK

Advantages: rhythm, passionate lyrics, effective post-industrial drums to drive that natural aggressive sound
Disadvantages: Not for Fans of vintage Combichrist or haters of anything slightly commercial.

Making Monsters is the fifth album released on September 28, 2010 by American based Aggrotech band Combichrist. Combichrist’s sound has evolved over a decade so bizarrely and fantastically to incorporate the speed, aggression and noise that the you ... Read review

Ibiza Letdown 2002
Review of Ibiza Annual 2002 - Various Artists by danielclark691

Advantages: Some memorable hits from 2002
Disadvantages: Not enough quality tracks - especially on the second disc.

First impressions When it comes to dance compilation albums I find that one of the best 'brands' to stick to is Ministry Of Sound. One of my other favourites is Cream, and they produce some of the most consistently good albums in my opinion. Yes, f ... Read review

Review of Big Tunes (X Rated/Parental Advisory) [PA] - Various Artists by danielclark691

Advantages: Some memorable tunes, upbeat and energetic, very cheap!
Disadvantages: Outdated, lots of average tracks.

First impressions Many of the Ministry of Sound dance compilation albums have scantily clad women on the front of them. It makes sense really as it is often young men that buy this type of dance CD and I would definitely say that it is eye-catching ... Read review

First impressions This album was released back in late 2004 and is the greatest hits album of Groove Armada, the English electronica duo. The front cover to this album is rather simple but effective. The background is a pale blue colour with darker ... Read review

Advantages: Very good album, only the very best tracks.

Review of Hardcore 2007 (Helter Skelter vs Raindance/Parental Advisory) [PA] - Various Artists by danielclark691

Advantages: Where do I begin?
Disadvantages: Too much to list.

First impressions The front cover of this album reminds me very much of a nightclub. I suppose that makes sense really because this is the kind of environment that you would expect to hear this sort of music in. Fortunately I don't hear this music ... Read review
