Record Rewind: Nas – Illmatic

January 4, 2014 | 0 Comments

April 19th 1994. Thirty nines minutes, fifty-one seconds and ten tracks that changed Hip Hop forever. As Nas famously mumbled at the beginning of N.Y State of Mind, I don’t know how to start this, really. In my very biased old school opinion, never has there been a Hip Hop album before, or after that...

In 1995, the King of Pop was solidifying his legacy after the previous tumultuous years.

A school bus. 2004. We are headed to a coastal camp. I am sitting next to my friend Maddy and we are singing. The entire self-titled album by The Cat Empire. Other kids give us weird looks but we keep going. We are in love with this music. Yes, this album had a huge impact...

It’s usually around the age of 13 or 14 when teenagers start getting into some sort of musical genre they love.  Rather than listening to whatevers on the radio or getting a copy of Now that’s what I call music 22,435 from nan for Christmas, suddenly a whole specific genre of music is opened up which...

The Gaslight Anthem’s debut album Sink or Swim hit shelves in 2007 and is one for every rock fan to enjoy. It is the perfect introductory album for the band, showing the world what they’re about and the potential they possess. Like many, I first became a fan of the New Jersey quartet after hearing...

Prior to the concept album The Black Parade that shot the band into stardom was the also heavily themed Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. Explained by Gerard Way in the band’s video diary from Life On The Murder Scene, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, was the album that defined My Chemical Romance’s sound. On one end...

There is a sense of comfort that comes with nostalgia, that warm, gooey feeling that envelops you as soon as the opening chimes of a familiar song sound, evoking memories of when you were here or there and who you were with. In regards to music itself, reminiscence plays a powerful part in our psyche,...

December 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

I have loved Cartel since 2007 and I was only still a teenager back then and even now that I’m in my 20′s, the music that this band have given me is something worth noting down to everyone that loves their pop punk music as much as I do. They are seriously an underrated band...

Maybe it was the eclipse, or maybe it was the ticking over into an entirely new era, but sometime around the turn of the millennia, the British band Muse had an epiphany. First emerging as Radiohead-lite hopefuls, the trio – comprised of Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard – recouped back into their chrysalis...

Record Rewind: Chris Brown – F.A.M.E.

December 26, 2013 | 0 Comments

Chris Brown has a tumultuous relationship with his fans – spoken as a fan. His music and professional level dance moves keep me coming back, even though as a strong young woman, I don’t support some of the things he has done in his personal life. This is further discussed in a Glee episode dedicated...

Record Rewind: The Doors – The Doors

Jim Morrison’s body lies in the Pere-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. His grave is rather unassuming, at least it is these days – an impressive bust of his head which once sat atop the gravestone was stolen many years ago. The cemetery is an extensive sprawling maze of tombs, providing the afterlife accommodation for many other...
