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

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

I refuse to believe that such an excellent review is worthless to Ciao and I too lament their policy on this. Not sure I got the Steps reference, maybe they have fixed that blunder? R. by RICHADA

Advantages: Lovely vocals, varied moods, beautifully arranged
Disadvantages: A bit short in duration

I Love Forever Changes - A New Experience in Groovy Sound
Review of Forever Changes - Love by mikemelmak

Advantages: A strong case for this being among the finest Rock albums ever made.
Disadvantages: Should have been a double album but went over budget.

With an imminent General Election, a thought crossed my mind - if a week is a long time in politics then 50 years is an eternity in the fast moving world of popular music. In 1967, Paul McCartney said that pop was the new classical music, and to back up h ... Read review
