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

Deloused in the Comatorium — The Mars Volta — W.A.C.#3

My thoughts For people around my age, give or take a few years, this falls into the category of “year 9 music”. This was the age where a lot begin to stop listening to music fired at children and establish … Continue reading

Demon Days — Gorillaz — W.A.C.#2

My thoughts A mixture of sinister deep woodwind, discordant synths and sound effects brings us into Demon Days in the track Intro. This is joined by an off-beat drum, lending the mildest of reggae vibes. The sounds swell and a sustained electronic organ … Continue reading
