Opinion: Northern Lights’ Music Taste

  During my first term at university, I spent a lot of time with Northern Lights – often trying to write last-minute essays for my modules and trying not to get distracted by the news on the telly. In that time, I watched as Spark took down their mood board for the top 50 indie […]

Album Review: Akvamarin – Gravel Shores

Album Review: Akvamarin – Gravel Shores

Album Review: Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow

Album Review: Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow

As I begin to extend myself into album reviews, I like to think that there’ll be a time when I look back on this album and think “it didn’t get any worse than this”. I highly doubt there are many worse albums out there, with Yonaka’s debut being the most generic, boring piece to come from any […]

Album review: Metallica ‘Ride The Lightning’

By Sam Wilkinson The year was 1984, and July 27 saw Metallica releasing their second album, ‘Ride The Lightning’.

Blink 182 – “California” Album Review

Well, this is a familiar situation. Tom Delonge leaves Blink 182, so Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker recruit different members and make new music without Delonge. But, the difference this time is that instead of making a new Plus 44 album, they have brought in Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio and have decided to continue […]
