posted a review of R. Kelly - Trapped In The Closet Chapters 1-12. over 15 years ago
This is R. Kelly's gift to mankind - a "hip-hopera" (his words) based on what one presumes is an average day-in-the-life of a big time R&B singer. He adopts the persona of 'Sylvester' (Kelly's real-life middle name), who finds himself waking up in a... See full review
posted a review of Godspeed You Black Emperor! - F♯ A♯ ∞. over 16 years ago
What I find interesting about this LP version when compared to the later CD release (and indeed the rest of their material), is the almost complete lack of crescendos. It is important to note that the CD release is remixed, re-sequenced and includes... See full review

posted a review of Sigur Rós. over 16 years ago
I've always felt Sigur Rós are mistakenly lumped in with the rest of the 'Post Rock' scene. I believe they have far more in common with Shoegazer acts such as Slowdive ('Myrkur' from their debut is pure Slowdive) and My Bloody Valentine, and even some... See full review
posted a review of World's End Girlfriend - Farewell Kingdom. over 16 years ago
What a find this was! Picked it up after being recommended it by a member of Mono (Japanese post rock outfit) and it's quite something. There's a lot of instrumentation here, from violins to live bass and guitars, etc. As tracks progress they often... See full review
