What did you expect from an album review?

The Vaccines' debut offering, What did you expect from The Vaccines? came a little early on in the year to be dubbed the sound of the summer, but I'd say the London 4-piece's 11-track, 36-minute album is a strong contender for the title. I'm often a little hesitant throwing the world 'pop' around, but I can safely say this is one of the best pop records I've heard this year.

The Social Network

I haven't been looking forward to a film as I have The Social Network for quite some time. From the moment I first saw the familiar white lettering on the blue background I was intrigued. Don't get me wrong, I'm no Facebook junkie; sure I blog about it now and again and I'm on it every day (but who isn't these days). But I think it's more the awe-inspiring story of the 26-year old billionaire that had the idea that gets me.

My iPhone 4

Two posts within a week with an Apple tag - I'm at risk of being dubbed a fanboy - although it seems I may have already adopted that status. Don't get me wrong though, I love reading comments, whatever the content! I intend to keep this iPhone 4 review succinctly short, as it is late, and because I really can't bare to read (let alone write) reviews that go on and on and on and on and on and on. I digress...

Inception: The Dream World

I write this blog entry for several reasons. Firstly, the last time I blogged was the 13th July - well over 2 weeks ago. To say I've become a bit lax is an understatement.

The Only Revolutions you'll need

A while back now, I raved about Biffy Clyro's single release, The Captain. Since then, I've had the pleasure of acquiring the album Only Revolutions, providing me with 11 more tracks to sink my teeth into. Hold onto your hats people, this album will rock your socks.

Kick Ass

I saw this film a few days ago now. After watching it I decided I'd wait a few days for it to sink in as, to be quite honest, it caught me off guard a little. This is a strange film. On first impressions it looks like a light-hearted super-hero comedy, with average chumps attempting to beat up bad guys but inevitably getting their asses handed to them. And, as a brief summary, that's what the film is. But let's just say there's a lot more besides.

Phrazes for the Young

I mentioned the sounds of Julian Casablancas in this post. It wasn't much of a review post as I hadn't heard much of the song at that point. Since then, I've bought his album - Phrazes for the Young - and I thought now would be a good time to review it.

The Invention of Lying

Lamefest. Seriously. What was Ricky Gervais thinking with this film? It is rather hard to pick something about this film that I actually liked. That's how bad it was.

Thanks Biffy, The Captain is it!

Biffy Clyro have a new single out, The Captain. It's the follow up to That Golden Rule and features on their upcoming album Only Revolutions. I never really got fully on board with That Golden Rule, but The Captain, in my opinion, better represents the sound that Biffy hinted at in That Golden Rule. It's like they've made the perfect rock/pop fusion track. And I love it!

Undisclosed Desires - the Muse Magic

Monday, 14 September 2009 7:24 pm
tags: muse music review

I have to admit, I wasn’t looking forward to the new Muse album much after hearing the first single off it. Uprising didn’t really do anything for me. It was the Muse we’d come to expect, but it just had no kick to it or anything to make it stand out. Then I heard another song off the album: Undisclosed Desires.
