Bibio – Mind Bokeh


Mind Bokeh rather aimlessly wanders away from the more clearly defined previous Bibio releases. It has a few really good tracks (‘K Is For Kelson’ is a personal favourite), but they are interspersed by...


Miley Cyrus – Bangerz


Bangerz is a collection of bog standard teen fodder pop tunes backed up with a touch of country and the requisite ‘urban’ edge that apparently passes as ‘rebellious’ in the mind of teeny bopping...


Cody ChesnuTT – Landing On A Hundred

Lamb Of God – Ashes Of The Wake


Lamb of God’s fourth album picks up where the third left off, and just keeps going. The sound is as heavy as an egg cup full of neutron star matter, but maintains a pulsating...

Jedward – Planet Jedward


Jedward are an example of everything that is wrong with the social media generation. They are poster boys for the ‘shout loud enough, and you will get heard’ school of thought. ‘Planet Jedward’ perfectly...
