The song House of the rising son is an amazing cover to say the least. The rest of the album is as good.

Great album. Bad pressing

Reviewed by on

So I’m a huge fan of this album. It’s some of Chevelle’s best work. Sadly the copy I received is not the best. There is loads of hissing and pops from factory dirt, which is also visible. The vocals suffer a lot of sibilance (had “S” sounds) and the the sound quality isn’t as good as other records I have gotten in the last year. Still a good album though and not too bad for the reduced price.

JT is back.

Reviewed by on

Justin has redeemed himself in my eyes after the 20/20 Albums. I wasn't a big fan of those albums. But he is back with a solid album in my opinion. It is a mixture of some techno tracks like Filthy and then some country flavoured tunes like "Man of the woods", which is just a charming pop song. One of my favourites off the new cd. The video of the song is great too.

Standout tracks for me are "Sauce", Filthy", "Man of the woods", "Morning light" featuring Alicia Keys as well as "Midnight summer jam".

The album has been on repeat mode for a few days, and its growing on me more and more. Expect a lot of hit singles to come off this amazing album. If you are a JT fan, then this is a no-brainer. Buy a copy today.

A real dissapointment

Reviewed by on

If you're into hardcore or d-beat punk and a fan of Discharge's older stuff don't bother buying this. It is rubbish to say the least and I cant place the genre but definitely not punk.

the end dvd of black sabbath live in birmingham

Reviewed by on

the final live concert dvd after 49 years, is truly magnificent visually and in audio sound. most of the favourite tracks are there and played with all the energy and substance they deserve.
it is like being there in the front row. This is a must for any Black Sabbath fan and also for just anyone who likes to watch a legendary heavy metal group in full throtel.
an amazing performance that deserves 5 stars.

A fantastic album

Reviewed by on

Bouwer outdoes himself on this solo album, with well polished songs and memorable melodies. The songs are mixed to a high standard and the compositions are solid. Bouwer makes use of mainly acoustic instruments in songs like "Oorgeloop", as well as some more electronic elements in other tracks on the album that would fit perfectly on the radio.

Album artwork / photography is great and the delivery time was fast. Great price! Bouwer has been in the game for a long time and delivered an awesome product with this CD.

Awesome South African Rock \m/

Reviewed by on

This is a superb album of South African rock from a band based in Cape Town. I especially enjoy the Queen influence in their tracks. Grab it if you're an adventurous music lover who enjoys some rock with elements of pop in it and enjoy some good vocal hooks and melodies and feel good by supporting your local music scene!

Ethereally Melodic, Yet Viscerally Weighty

Reviewed by on

As individuals, we often assign or deduct value to and from things such as bands or music based on an experiences we've had at specific times in our lives involving those artists.

If you're at all into alternative/rock music that tends to sway to the heavier side of the spectrum, you'd know that this album does not suffer from being perceived by its listeners in a mere light of nostalgia. It transcends that fickle notion with considerable ease.

As Deftones' third record since the relatively underrated debut, "Adrenaline" (1995), the band took those elements that had set them apart from their peers in their first two instalments and refined them to a point where the very aesthetic of their sound had meta-morphed into something that is, to this day, as good an example of maturity and catharsis as it was back in 2000.

Produced by renowned sound engineer, Terry Date (Slipknot, Pantera, Soulfly, White Zombie, Dream Theater, Soundgarden, to name a few of his other production gigs), White Pony rendered soundscapes which included more melodic vocal and musical progressions, more tightly constructed and sparingly used heavy riffs, while also making way for a more involved contribution by turntable samplist, Frank Delgado. One cannot talk about this album, or any other aft it, without mentioning Frank. His sampling and digital backdrops have come to be one of the defining elements of the act's music, with as much weight as each of the other members' efforts!

If you're a true fan, you might know that "Back To School" was only added to White Pony as the first track on certain later versions/releases of the album. This was due to the studio, after initially releasing the album without the aforementioned track, feeling that the album didn't contain tracks that related well to what other bands in the genre were doing at the time, which could be considered as much more "commercial nu-metal". Fearing that Deftones' alleged "deviance" from the seemingly booming genre might mean losses for the studio, Deftones were essentially contractually forced to record a new track with express instructions that it had to be more rap-orientated. This was with the intention of aligning the band more with the rap-based exercises of their peers (Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, etc.). This all but explains the out-of-place feeling the track has when listened to alongside the rest of the album. Fortunately, those initial versions that omit "Back To School" are still available via various online and physical vendors alike.

I'm not going to cite the characteristics of each song on "White Pony", though I'll mention that anyone going into this album without any prior exposure to it (where have you been?!), would be met with a liberal degree of variation in aggression, tone & melody that usually translates to an unrelenting urge to keep hitting that "Repeat" button.

The album has a metascore of 72, as well as a user rating of 9.0/10 on Metacritic, so it's definitely worth a try!

Thank you for reading and enjoy what might become one of your new favourite albums!
