Whilst Mojo pronounced them one of their top bands of 2009 and they received a nomination for the Best Breakthrough Act with in the Mojo Honours (needless to say I donâ€™t think they won), it might be clear that they are meant to be something really breathtaking.

Iâ€™m sure everyone is very much aware of Pendulumâ€™s debut album â€“ Hold Your Colour â€“ including the famous tracks â€˜Tarantulaâ€™ and â€˜Hold Your Colourâ€™. Iâ€™m also sure that many thought they would not be able to top that, but with their next album â€“ In Silico â€“ going platinum just like their first, they did. Now they are back to blast our eardrums once more with their new album â€“ Immersion.

A mix between Kaiser Chiefs sound and Chris Martinâ€™s voice from cold play is how I think White Belt Yellow Tag come across. Unfortunately I donâ€™t think that this band is very original at all. The album to me seems a bit predictable and ordinary from its genre. When listening to the CD on random, […]

From a person who listens to almost anything except from opera and sometimes country, it will maybe shock you to hear that I just could not get into this album. Mind Controlâ€™s new album Addicted is anything but a knock out to me. Every song is so similar that sometimes I struggle to tell the […]

Although I am not a person to be found listening to folk music, I will try to be as honest as I can with the next review. The album Stanley Brinks And The Wave Pictures is a very slow one. It does not have any high point in all the songs featured in it. Although […]

White Rabbits newest release Itâ€™s Frightening is a must have for people interested in relaxing up beat music. Most of the songs featured in this album such as Percussion Gun and Lionesse are lead by the drumming and percussions of Jamie Levinson and Mathew Clark and then followed by an interesting mixture of guitar and […]
