Not To My Taste
Review of Hunting Party - Linkin Park by Secre

Advantages: If you like your rock heavy
Disadvantages: If you don't like your rock heavy

Linkin Park were a band that I fell in love with as a teenager; their mix of angry rock, vocal supremacy and angst filled lyrics really hit the spot for me at the time. I’m a bit of an odd ball with music; I listen very much for the lyrics and whilst I wi ... Read review

I enjoyed Linkin Park up to a point, but I'm a few albums behind on their output these days. Whilst I may not have followed them closely in recent years, it's a tragedy there will be no more. by Soho_Black

LOVE THIS DOCUMENTARY!
Review of Flight 666 - Iron Maiden by Ginnybear

Advantages: Insightful, Interesting, exposing!
Disadvantages: If you don't like the music, you may not love the show

Following the bands "Somewhere back in Time" tour in the 80's, this documentary gives you a genuine insight into the inner circle of the band itself and the people that help to bring them to life as Iron Maiden. They customized their own Bowing 757 to do ... Read review

Road To Glory
Review of Born This Way - Lady Gaga by killingtime69

Advantages: Marry The Night, Highway Unicorn, The Edge of Glory
Disadvantages: can be a bit much on the vocal parts

Title track, 'Born This Way' (or "Born This Wa-hey" as she'll enunciate it and I'll say it) makes no apologies about being who you are and it is unapologetically pop. I don't care too much for the lyrics in this album. From an immigrant's perspective, "I ... Read review

The Fifteenth Frontier
Review of Final Frontier - Iron Maiden by killingtime69

Advantages: Some good riffs
Disadvantages: Lengthy listening

The final frontier is not easy to get into. At 76:34 long with 1 sub 5 minute song it is lengthy listening. But opener 'Satellite 15... The Final Frontier' should have been 2 tracks for the listener, and the indulgences at the beginning and end of the sol ... Read review

The Last Of The Famous International Velvet
Review of International Velvet - Catatonia by killingtime69

Advantages: Rock with pop choruses
Disadvantages: Middle of the album not too exciting

Had I known Catatonia to have a song named 'Mulder & Scully' I'd have been on their case sooner! It is a name-drop - Cerys Matthews is no X-phile; the opener has jerking guitars, conflict in trying to go it alone. Highlight of the album however, are the " ... Read review

As a starting point, this isn't too bad, but as a whole review, it needs a lot more. by Soho_Black
I'm sorry, but I didn't find this review very useful personally. You could do with writing a little more and perhaps looking at how to format reviews. Thank you for taking the time to write a review though :) by FluffyKipper

Weezer Go Green
Review of Weezer (Green Album) - Weezer by killingtime69

Advantages: Short and sweet power-pop-rock
Disadvantages: Formulaic, overly polished

Mike Welsh's only Weezer album - Matt Sharp had departed; opener 'Don't Let Go' is "woo-woah-ooh-woah" not pushing limits - a band finding its feet after a 5 year hiatus? The tone is set for most of the album, and I would listen for the drums breaking awa ... Read review

Personal favorite, But not for everyone
Review of Vessel - Twenty One Pilots by hshow

Advantages: Creative, Speaks powerful messages
Disadvantages: Not for everone

Personally, Vessel is my favorite album from Twenty One Pilots, as the messages of the songs are powerful and speak to the lost and broken. The songs in Vessel helped me get through a lot of hard times in life, and I've tried to introduce it to some of my ... Read review

Much more analysis needed by LiveMusicLoverLyn
Welcome to Ciao. Adam's Song is based on a letter that a boy and written to his parents before he committed suicide. The letter was sent to Mark who then dedicated this song to it. Also this song came out in 1999, I think it's gained its success haha! Try aiming for at least 500 words in your reviews. :) by NBCMad92
