Single Review: Train – ‘Play that Song’

October 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

At this point, most people have made up their mind about Train. They are one of the most divisive bands around, adored by their loving fans, and despised in critical and alternative circles.

Single Review: John Legend – ‘Love Me Now’

October 21, 2016 | 0 Comments

Amongst all the magnificent future-R&B stars that exist today, John Legend has always seemed a bit conservative.

As if there is any need to justify new material from Metallica. The band have solidified themselves as metal icons for the better part of 30 years, with their tracks planting among the most anthemic music contributions of all time. Their newest single off their upcoming album Hardwired…to Self-Destruct is no different, going back to...

If there’s one thing that has defined the 7/27 era’s singles, it’s their variety. The mid-tempo electro-R&B of Work From Home and reggae vibe of All In My Head (Flex) were decidedly different from each other, despite a similar beat underneath them, and this doesn’t seem to be a trend that’s stopping with the latest...

Single Review: The Fray – ‘Singing Low’

September 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

Singing Low is the lead single from The Fray’s upcoming singles compilation. Is it supposed to be a culmination of everything that’s come before it? Is it supposed to show the new horizons the band will explore? Is it supposed to be a smash hit like so many of their singles before it? It’s seemingly...

In the early to mid-2000s the world experienced peak Usher, with the singer selling records by the truckload and performing concerts to mammoth crowds full of gushing and swooning fans.  It wasn’t overnight success, but it was a near meteoric rise and, as is always the case, what goes up must come down. It has...
