So this is an album I have been waiting over a decade for and it doesn’t disappoint. While I certainly enjoyed Argyle Park and then Celldweller, this feels like a monumental homecoming.
A band I have never paid much attention to, this album made me instantly regret the time I have lost with them. Metallica should listen to this album.
This one came outta nowhere for me. I received it from Metal Blade and didn’t think much about it. When I finally got around to reviewing it , it became an instant staple in my rotation and has stayed there all year long.
Rob1340 asked me to review this one and I dug the name so I agreed. The deep seeded sarcasm and irony in the lyrics was unparalleled this year and topped off with Lemonheads-ish musical goodness.
Rachel Taylor of He is We fame, launches her own rocketship, cleverly reclaiming her former moniker. It’s an all killer, no filler kinda of album with ElectroPop goodness and thoughtful balladry. The lost child of Duran Duran and Lights.
