Room On Fire is the second album by The Strokes. The title of the album is actually taken from one of the lyrics in the song Reptilia. In 2001, The Strokes burst onto the scene with their debut album, Is This It? It was the album that defined what The Strokes were all about and its impact on music will never be forgotten because of how slick and cool it was.
Today, one has decided that instead of writing about a dubstep or rock artist, one will write about a famous composer and master of Romantic music. The composer goes by the name of Frédéric Chopin. This virtuoso began to compose his own music at the tender age of eight, which goes to show why he went on to become such a famous composer. Now you’re all probably thinking, why on earth has Mark decided to review a piece that is almost 200 years old?
After the success of Muse’s Origin of Symmetry in 2001, the band had finally established the direction they were going to be heading for. This leads to the question, how in God’s name were they going to be able to top a bonkers and ingenious album like Origin of Symmetry?
Black Holes & Revelations is the fourth album by Teignmouth super trio Muse. After propelling to success with both Origin of Symmetry and Absolution, the pressure was definitely on in 2006. No one can even begin to imagine what must have been running through the bands’ heads. There was massive speculation that Muse wouldn’t be able to pull off another spectacular album that would be able to top the likes of Origin, where the concepts revolved around downloading other people’s personalities into your own brain.
Young For Eternity is the debut album by The Subways. The Hertfordshire trio consists of guitarist and vocalist Billy Lunn, bassist Charlotte Cooper and drummer Josh Morgan. After sending their demo to Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis in 2004, the band won the chance to play the festival and more live shows including Reading and Leeds, thereby gaining more recognition. Young For Eternity is the album that made heads turn because of how a three piece band deliver such a powerful sound.
So this weekend is the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to celebrate her 60th year in power. Normally one would say congratulations as she has been running the country for that amount of time. But since one doesn’t care about the Royal Family living in Buckingham Palace or whether Prince Charles has managed to woo Camilla even more since the days they first met, it is more appropriate to acknowledge that Rockhaq is available to us all on the internet
On 14th May 2012, Billy Talent made an announcement that they would be finishing off the final touches to their eagerly awaited sequel Billy Talent III. The band promised there would be new material coming their way on Friday 25th May 2012, so there isn’t any reason why one shouldn’t review Viking Death March. Viking Death March is the band’s first new material since 2009’s Billy Talent III. It’s understandable why fans are so desperate and excited for their comeback after three long years! So now fans are left with many unanswered questions. But does Viking Death March leave fans in hospital beds because of the sheer impact of the music or was it never worth the three year wait?
As anyone will know when you mention the name Jeff Buckley to someone, they will probably end up saying “Wasn’t he that bloke who sung Hallelujah?” or “I analysed the song Grace in my music course.” Well yes, he is that bloke that did sing both Grace and Hallelujah. But it’s the album Grace that made Buckley such a phenomenal talent in the early nineties, when he was considered to be pretty damn close to the likes of John Lennon and Bob Dylan. Grace is the only studio album completed by Jeff Buckley as he died in a drowning accident in 1997.
After the success of Billy Talent II, fans were told that the next album would be named Billy Talent III. The reason why II was such a success because it was a fun, personal and inspiring album that had a sting to it. II definitely showed that they had so much more to give after their debut. So will III leave fans astounded by Billy Talent’s efforts once again?
Whenever you hear the band name My Chemical Romance, first thing that comes to mind is a sudden shriek of girls screaming for lead vocalist Gerard Way or fans dressing in the band’s crazy costumes from themes on their albums. After bursting on the scene in 2002 with I Brought You My Bullets, they hit the big time in 2004 with Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge.
