Album Review: Beyonce – Lemonade

By  •  Reviews

I will hold my hands up now, I am by no means a Beyonce fan. This review won’t refer to her previous work because I’ve never really listened to any of it. The singles I’ve heard on the radio always seemed to encapsulate all the things I didn’t like about pop & R&B music.

Beyonce always had the talent to elevate its artistic standard, but there was none of her experience in the music. Lemonade changes everything I thought I knew about Beyonce.

Help: Mental Health in Music

A few of us began knocking ideas about for Christmas specials and it was really nice to hear Sam and Mark suggesting ones they wanted to write. I’ve been wanting to write this exploratory piece for a while, ever since Nathan’s review of Pink Floyd’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn actually. Initially I thought the subject of mental health wasn’t appropriate for Christmas but it’s probably far more apt to run a piece about this now rather than at any other time of the year.
