Entry #36 – The Beatles (a.k.a Genre Whiplash)

While this isn’t the longest it has taken me to write a review (I’m still trying to finish Be Here Now), this entry about the White Album has taken a solid month for me to get through. I started writing it in the early hours of December 19th 2022. It is now mid-January and thisContinue reading “Entry #36 – The Beatles (a.k.a Genre Whiplash)”

Entry #35 – A New Morning (a.k.a A False Dawn)

A New Morning is precisely no Suede fan’s favourite album. Upon release in 2002 it quickly developed a reputation for being lightweight, blasé, dull, same-old same-old, all the derogatory terms magazines like the NME and Q Magazine could pull from the dictionary to describe a band running on fumes. So why am I bothering toContinue reading “Entry #35 – A New Morning (a.k.a A False Dawn)”

Entry #34 – Magical Mystery Tour (a.k.a One Trip to Albert Dock Later…)

What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said about the Beatles? Sweet F.A. It’s been over 60 years since they evolved from the Quarrymen and they’re still hyped as heroes of music who shaped and reshaped the industry to their heart’s content in the 60s. We all know about them, it’s impossible not toContinue reading “Entry #34 – Magical Mystery Tour (a.k.a One Trip to Albert Dock Later…)”

Entry #33 – Heathen Chemistry (a.k.a Shrug of the Shoulders of Giants)

I’ve defended Standing on the Shoulder of Giants on this blog and continue to do so to this day. I thought that in spite of including some subpar songs over underrated corkers, that album was still a good effort and an interesting change in direction for Oasis. Sadly though it didn’t stick, as in theContinue reading “Entry #33 – Heathen Chemistry (a.k.a Shrug of the Shoulders of Giants)”

Entry #32 – The La’s (Mike Hedges Version) (a.k.a Same Proverbial, Different Day)

Hello again. When I abruptly stopped writing posts on A-Side Glance, I had just given by thoughts on the one and only album from the La’s. I’ve gone on record as saying that that record is one of my absolute favourites and a must-listen for anyone and everyone. And conversely the band themselves went onContinue reading “Entry #32 – The La’s (Mike Hedges Version) (a.k.a Same Proverbial, Different Day)”
