Avoid, Avoid Avoid !!

Within seconds after starting to listen to the disk I realized the purchase has been a complete waste of money. You can clearly hear the distortion in the recording due to incorrect volume settings. It becomes unlistenable.

How this recording could be reviewed so positively by the NY Times is beyond me.

Both Awesome and Disappointing at the Same Time

Reviewed by on

Musically, this album is really decent. More melodic than ever, probably, but in a good way.

The problem with this album is the production. It lets the album down in a huge way - there isn't as much of the crisp sounding, punishing production of past albums. This one sounds a bit muddy and distorted, and I almost gave the album 3 stars because of it. But, hiding underneath the crappy production is a collection of songs that can be described as Soilwork doing what Soilwork does. For this reason, it scrapes through with 4 stars for me.

From the first song, this joint had me swinging in my car and causing a commotion, wishing I had been born in the days of dirty, sexy, blues and their infamous, smoke-filled dance halls. Ivan's been on repeat in my car CD player for weeks now.

Red Velvet RBB

Reviewed by on

The waiting time was reasonable wrt the shipping time.

The album itself is really comprehensive compared to previous red velvet albums where it seemed like they just threw random songs together. Red Velvet is one of South Korea's most versatile kpop groups and despite this album not gaining momentum as fast as their other albums, RBB fully showcases the vocal prowess of the girls.

Stan talent, stan Red Velvet!

These are very good quality sleeves.

They are worth the price.

The only issue I have is the shipping takes forever.

If you want these, order about a month ahead of the time you would like to use them.

Technically very well recorded but artistically pretty much average sounding.

Reviewed by on

Read a glowing review of the disk and ordered it blindly.

Listening to the sacd one is immediately struck by how well the music has been recorded. Pinpoint imaging and depth to the music.

But artistically the disk becomes boring after the third track.

Warren Hayes is the man! Dark side of the Mule...

Reviewed by on

By now everybody knows that Warren was one part of the hugely successful Allman Brothers Band, but his side project Gov't Mule gave him the freedom to experiment and not to be tied down by the relative confines of Southern Rock. On this superb live album everybody is having a great time, the audience participation is amazing and the songs are true to their original spirit but they take on a life of their own. Don't expect a full Dark side of the moon set list - this is a celebration of Pink Floyd and their music. The differences make for enjoyable listening and there are a few deviances off the usual Pink Floyd characteristics and nuances. As a live album it has the usual grand noise and is a perfect vehicle for the excitement that Pink Floyd material always generates sing-alongs and loud cheers and hoots. A few songs have interesting alternative interpretations with blues and even funk moments, but are all the more enjoyable for it. A lovely album to listen to. Includes a digital download code and is supplied with two coloured vinyl discs, one brownish orange and the other a nifty green goody.

Low - Double Negative

Reviewed by on

Be warned - this album is a real tester, but brilliant nevertheless. If you know Low and have followed their career you will understand that their lowkey style has had some really slow and understated drone qualities, ambient and atmospheric textures and styling, and some drift-away goodness. On Double Negative they create moods by implementing chaos in a controlled manner; you may find yourself checking the setup of your turntable. Feedback and audible distortion is used in an innovative way to create definite textures and emotions. If all of this sounds confusing, get the record. It is simply brilliant and one of the very best of their career. Certainly one of the best of 2018.

Agnes Obel - Late Night Tales

Reviewed by on

Fans of Agnes welcome new material at any given time, and Late Night Tales is no exception. Although classed as a compilation the songs on offer on this double album (with the exception of a handful she wrote herself) have been carefully and judiciously given her unique and sensitive treatment. The songs are known intimately to Agnes and had been the subject of mixtapes in her youth. A fun album with a serious side, and one that does not have to be approached with caution - if you love Agnes this will be another chapter of appreciation and right up your alley. Supplied with a digital dowload code.

Led Zeppelin Yes, but still original

Reviewed by on

Yes this band has been labelled as a Led Zeppelin cover band/rip-off, hell the lead singer sounds like Robert Plant, but giving how young these guys are and what they have achieved so far is quite remarkable.

The are putting their own stamp on the rock landscape and with growing support might just go from strength-to-strength.

Give them a listen! Recommended!
