I remember when this album was released back in 2000 – and I also remember the reaction of some ‘die-hard’ Radiohead fans I knew at the time. Many, no doubt hoping for a return of the anaesthetised acoustic-guitar pop of their commercial breakthrough The Bends, were disappointed. I even knew one fan who described most of the tracks on Kid A as ‘rubbish’ and felt angry and betrayed at having to listen to these tracks when they went to see Radiohead live in 2000. Mind you, what do most fans really know about music?
The self-titled album Paramore starts with a heart-thumping drumbeat that is accompanied by electronic soundscapes and a fuzzy distorted bass line in Fast In My Car. This is the fourth album release from Paramore and the opening track shows how brave the band have been to experiment with genres that aren’t necessarily compatible with their trademark sound.
Ghost Walking, the only single from Lamb of God’s new album Resolution, is definitely deserving of the attention it received from LOG’s loyal fans. The album itself is full of Lamb of God’s typical groove metal aspects, as well as pulling together lots of other genres as they’re known for doing. The album is definitely worth a listen to anyone who is in the mood for something heavy, technical and aggressive.
It’s been a while, Rockhaq! Feels good to be back and it feels even better to be back with the chance to review a beautiful classical folk album. Released in 2010, Philharmonics is a number one album from Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel. But enough of the album’s history. The opener, ‘falling, catching’ is a very serene piano piece, which instantly introduces the album’s classical theme.
At first I thought this band were rubbish due to the fact that I didn’t give them a try to see what they sounded like, but then I gave Your Demise a listen and they just blew me away with what they had to show and I had to tell everyone about it. This five piece band from St Albans have many awesome guitar solos and riffs that it’s unbelieveble to even try to learn them all! They also have catchy drum beats to help woo the crowd at a concert and get them going and a top bassist that fits in well with all of this to get the audience going. Try listening to The Kids We Used To Be (below) and you will see what I mean.
So Wrong, It’s Right is the second studio by Maryland rockers, All Time Low. The four piece named their band after one of the lyrics in New Found Glory’s famous hit Head On Collision. All Time Low broke out into the music scene in 2005 with their debut, The Party Scene. So Wrong It’s Right was the album where the band gained success and this particular album would become one of the best pop punk albums of 2007.
