Hello and welcome to A-Side Glance!

This is my blog where I give my thoughts and impressions on music that I have been listening to lately. Usually I focus on indie/alt rock from the 90s, but I may also look at the new releases of today or the best and worst of times gone by. Just depends what has ended up in my playlist lately.

But while I’m giving my thoughts and opinions on what I’ve been listening to, bear in mind one thing:

For the longest time I had no taste in music whatsoever. Like, at all. Didn’t listen to anything. Now I do. So as I ramble on, you may end up thinking that I am talking a load of rubbish, and I would more than likely agree with you. But I like to think maybe I do have some clue that I know what I am talking about. As far as I am concerned there are no right or wrong opinions here; I say what I think and you are more than welcome to say what you think.

Ok, I think that’s about it. Make yourself at home and enjoy!

One of the jobs of a songwriter, as I see it, is to develop strategies to help people transcend their sorrows. This is the unique duality of a great song – that it can reflect back at the listener the extent of their own hurt, yet lift them beyond it at the same time. How often have we wept ourselves to transcendence through music?
