Love — The Cult — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts The Cult’s second studio album straddles the unclear line between rock and metal. It’s a little late to be early metal and so probably fits in the “goth metal” category. Whatever it is, Love has a definitive 80’s sound. You could … Continue reading

Pure Comedy — Father John Misty — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts So a really recent one as the time of writing, it’s not yet two months old. Pure Comedy is the third studio album of Josh Tillman, aka Father John Misty. The titular track takes a broad look at our … Continue reading

Comfort In Sound — Feeder — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts On paper, this album is the fourth studio album by Feeder but this statement is a gloss-over. This album represents the first album after drummer Jon Lee’s suicide and the whole album is a representation of this. It’s not … Continue reading

Yeezus — Kanye West — W.A.C.#4

I felt doomed from the start, here. People who know me know that I don’t care for Kanye as a person and as such have tended to show very little interest in his music. On first listen, my thoughts just … Continue reading

My thoughts Yet another little known album this week. Bosley is an artist who uses retro sounds in modern music. This melange of styles ranges through blues, funk and modern indie sounds; it’s a pretty solid base. I say artist, … Continue reading

Crab In Honey — Fever the Ghost — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts Ok – so it’s not an Album… it’s an EP; the debut EP for Fever the Ghost. I’d never heard of them and researching the group was difficult! Early in their career and seemingly not that well known, … Continue reading

Queen II — Queen — W.A.C.#4

My thoughts Despite the what the album cover might suggest, we are before Bohemian Rhapsody. Queen had written a lot of material by the time they released their debut album (Queen) but didn’t feature a lot of it. The main aim … Continue reading

Ez Reviews #4: Play – Moby

  I’m going to say before I start that I have a strange history with this album. I remember my father buying it on release. He had these huge Bluetooth headphones (when they were all the rage, remember?) and he’d … Continue reading

Philosophy Of The World — The Shaggs — W.A.C.#4

WARNING ==== STRONG LANGUAGE AHEAD ==== Ok… You need a tiny bit of context here. Austin Wiggin, Jr. managed a band composed of his three daughters. He believed his girls were going to be amazing and in order to capitalise … Continue reading
