Album Review: Ed Harcourt – Back Into The Woods

February 22, 2013 | 0 Comments

I have to say that I fell in love with the music of Ed Harcourt quite late in the game. When I was asked to review his last record, 2010’s Lustre I wasn’t too sure what I was getting myself into. Though I had never heard any of Ed’s music prior to that point the...

Album Review: Destiny’s Child – Love Songs

January 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

When Destiny’s Child decided to part ways back in 2005 few believed it would be the last time we would see the unit perform or record together. Over the space of 8 years Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams sold enough records, 50 million in total, to take the title of best-selling girl group...

It is a fairly obvious fact that there aren’t too many acts that survive the X-Factor gauntlet. For most winners, as time has shown, you are better off not reaching the top spot.
