Album Review: Millencolin – SOS (2019 LP)

February 15, 2019

A lot has changed in the world over the past twenty-six years. The era circa 1992 was a completely different time. For one, both myself and Millencolin were in our infancy. Without listing all the other similarities between myself and the band (there aren’t any), it would remiss of me to not note how influential […]

Album Review: The Twilight Sad – It Won/t Be Like This All The Time (2019 LP)

February 15, 2019

Walls play an integral part in The Twilight Sad’s aesthetic. Since their first release, the Scottish band has used everything in their arsenal to overwhelm listeners with a wall of sound; from Andy MacFarlane’s roaring guitars to accordions and fire extinguishers. Other walls came in the form of singer James Graham’s lyrics, where situations and […]

Blu-Ray Review: A Star is Born takes us on stage and into the jam sessions for its home release

February 15, 2019

Lady Gaga is not the first singer to embark on the transition from music to film (J. Lo, I’m looking at you), and I doubt she will be the last. However, never before have I seen a musician take this leap with such skill, such talent and such raw emotion reminiscent of a seasoned actor. […]

Games Review: Crackdown 3 is not the platform exclusive the Xbox One badly needs right now

February 15, 2019

I think we all knew, deep down, that Crackdown 3 was never going to be anything special. Years of delays don’t seem to have given developer Sumo Digital the space they needed to build on even the original game’s most basic concepts. It seems content to replicate the parts of the original that worked best […]
