Silverstein – Dead Reflection

Silverstein are back with their ninth album, Dead Reflection after the longest break between  albums they have had in their career. As soon as I saw the album cover I knew I was in for something different, the cover straying away from typical designs of previous releases and showing restraint and simplicity I thought to myself,…

Our Last Night – Selective Hearing 

Our Last Night have released their new EP Selective Hearing, and at first I wasn’t really excited to hear this one, but I actually was pleasantly surprised. I’ve been listening to these guys since their debut album, The Ghosts Among Us, which is my favourite release by them and unfortunately I’ve lost a lot of…

Linkin Park – Meteora

After hearing the shocking and devastating news of Chester Bennington I knew I had to pay my respects and review my favourite album by Linkin Park. The follow up to their huge debut album Hybrid Theory was the truly epic Meteora, released in 2003. I was 11 the first time I heard it and it was the…

Lael – Phoenix 

Lael, or Jeff Schneeweis, or “that dude from Number One Gun“. Jeff is a seriously talented guy, not just for his musicianship or writing abilities but as a producer too. Acts such as Anberlin, Hawthorne Heights and Brighten all owe it to him for creating such awesome sounds for their releases and he is a massive…

Hundredth – Rare 

Hundredth have never been a band that I’ve really listened to before as they were a melodic hardcore band and too heavy for me to enjoy. That changed when I caught a snippet of one of their new songs and I was taken away. Being a prominately heavy band for nearly ten years, they have…

Can’t Swim – Fail You Again 

Can’t Swim, are really becoming one of my favourite bands right now. Fairly new on the scene and being active since 2015, these guys are a mix of pop punk, emo, post-hardcore and rock and it’s pretty awesome!! Fail You Again is their debut album, and what a debut it is! Hard hitting riffs, melodic tenderness,…

Brighten – Brighten 

Brighten have always been a band I love dearly. They have for the most of their career been an independent 3 piece band with a pop rock feel. I’ve loved them for their themes of getting older and finding love along with guitarist/vocalist and main song writer, Justin Richards, cleaver skills of writing and lyrical…

Harry Styles – Harry Styles 

Okay, so I know what your thinking, “really Harry Styles?” but just bare with me for a minute. The dude can sing, to be honest every time I heard a One Direction song all I could hear was Harry’s voice, it’s strong, stylistic and always present. Yeah so he was in the money making teen…

Kasabian – For Crying Out Loud

I was pretty late to the Kasabian train, I was too busy being an emo when these guys were really making a name for themselves and now I absolutely love them. For Crying Out Loud is their 6th album and besides the pretty unimaginative album cover this album is pretty good.  The album begins with…

He Is Legend – Few

Just once you think that maybe these guys will call it a day, they come out of nowhere and release a solid album. A crowd funded album (which I personally donated to) is the result of He Is Legend‘s 5th album Few. There’s obviously a big following still for these guys that the record labels…

Blink-182 – California DELUXE EDITION

To make things clear this is a review for the Deluxe edition of Blink 182‘s California. So I’m only judging the tracks on the bonus disc and not the standard album. I will say though that California was an album that I didn’t necessarily need but was okay with what I ended up getting. It wasn’t…
