Entry #11 – Brand New Start & The Roller (a.k.a Two for the price of one)

Yup, in my continuing quest to keep things fresh and not stick with one standard formula, I’m reviewing two singles of choice today. Both have made an impression in my playlist lately and I just fancy talking about them. One is from an artist I’ve long been an admirer of, and the other I onceContinue reading “Entry #11 – Brand New Start & The Roller (a.k.a Two for the price of one)”

Entry #10 – The Lyre of Orpheus (a.k.a: The One with the song used in Harry Potter)

If you’re just joining us you may want to read the previous entry where we delved into the first part of this double album from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Entry #8 – B-Side Myself I: Head Music (a.k.a Experimentalier)

At the end of my review of Head Music I stated that I would not be leaving it there as while the album was overall good, it was still very inconsistent. Songs like Elephant Man, Asbestos and Crack in the Union Jack all left a sour taste in the mouth and made me think thatContinue reading “Entry #8 – B-Side Myself I: Head Music (a.k.a Experimentalier)”

Entry #7 – Head Music (a.k.a Suede’s Be Here Now?)

This is an album I’ve been wanting to delve into for a while. See, I loved Coming Up, it’s my go to Suede album and one that commercially took the band to the top during the latter days of the Britpop era. With Blur fading into the background in the aftermath of The Great Escape’sContinue reading “Entry #7 – Head Music (a.k.a Suede’s Be Here Now?)”
