  • Frippertronics thanks. I'm doing this mainly for the band's facebook group, which the band (past and present) are involved in and I figured since it's been 22 years since a compilation of this type has been released, it'd be logical enough to it for the fans of today.

  • Frippertronics with the vaguest of blessings from the higher ups, i am putting together a compilation and would like fans to vote, including u

  • teamster Enjoying Foscor. Great little write up and I agree.
    July 13 04:40 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit i appreciate you rating my last album i did with my band count to altek. ive just released a new ep under my other project king green if you have any interest -

  • zaruyache I casually listened to some of it and I'm pretty sure they ripped off actual sunbather parts, too :3
    November 23 02:53 PM
  • zaruyache Cheq new nullingroots? I saw you liked their last one and they have a new one out.

  • TheBrutalMaster Hey man, if you have time, you could write a review for my band's latest album!

  • JohnnyOnTheSpot drop into the contrib forum when you get a chance
    December 7 12:20 AM
  • Frippertronics Yeah, the album itself is pretty good ambient. Though in the 80s/90s when the band had their stuff reissued on the Mantella label, they often tacked on random tracks. The Touch Me/Six Pieces albums had the two versions of Joined by The Heart, The Spell had a live version of Fand, etc.

  • Frippertronics Well, Reverberations is not an Enid track, it's a solo piece by Godfrey from the Reverberations tape. A good tune, but not Enid.
    July 25 11:56 AM
  • Frippertronics You've heard up to Something Wicked This Way Comes, right? I forget.
    July 25 06:07 AM
  • Frippertronics I'll give it another try later because I got my old reviews of the first twod by request - though having Region on the front page is a sure sign of what happened. You'd probably convince them better than me, but whatever happens happens. It'd be a good way to get more traffic on the band's sput page or whatever by spreading out the reviews to their right spots
    July 25 06:05 AM
  • Frippertronics Hi, just wanted to let you know I requested your Enid reviews to be moved to their rightful spots (since you reviewed the remakes of the first two albums, and not exactly the originals). Hopefully, you're fine with this development as I'm going to do some edits to the band page in the coming month.
    July 25 01:37 AM
  • Frippertronics dunno if you noticed this. only have White Goddess/Journey's End/Invicta and I'm all set for the new album.
    July 23 07:37 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie The Blues is my fav genre man :D
    June 24 06:27 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Yeah man, Gary is probably the most emotional guitarist I have ever heard.
    June 24 06:10 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie it's a bit all over the place considering the fact that I hadn't play this for 2-3 years, but i tried to do my best
    June 24 05:55 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie
    June 24 05:54 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie It's great to see you digging Gary Moore's music. Cheers man !
    June 24 05:34 PM
  • Voivod Hi man, I'm not thinking about reviewing both albums right now, be my guest :-)
    June 14 01:16 PM
  • manosg Thanks Robert, glad to be on the team!
    April 15 02:11 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup man. I think the mods are sorta putting a kibosh on staff/contribs posting reviews in 2 places - thought I'd give you a heads up
    March 2 11:45 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert, if you like Candlemass or Epic Doom in general, you might love these guys: Sermon/64352/
    February 23 11:39 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, brother.
    February 20 11:45 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert, didn't you apply for one of the staff positions ?
    February 20 09:47 AM
  • Frippertronics hey, i was wondering about your reviews of the first two Enid albums. The material you reviewed was different, as you wrote about the 80s remakes, which makes some points in them kind of irrelevant (like any mention of Francis Lickerish, who wasn't on the remakes)
    January 18 07:40 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie It would be interesting to see what points you will raise with that review and the reasons you rated it so high. I couldn't give this nothing more than a 3.5.
    November 18 06:55 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Nah, I can't promise I could write one anytime soon, now with Cathedral's discog my hands are full atm
    November 18 06:52 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Robert, will you review "Suspended at Aphelion" ?
    November 18 08:14 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie That's very productive man, I hope to see you becoming staff one day
    October 12 10:59 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Do you write reviews for other sites as well ?
    October 12 07:36 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert how you've been ? holy ****ing Christ, 151 reviews in four years. That's really something. Keep up the good work man.
    October 11 10:56 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Congrats on 150 reviews, man!
    October 6 02:27 PM

    February 11 10:26 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert sup ? I was so looking forward to seeing you getting promoted. Out of all the guys who applied, you deserved it the most. Congrats man, you are a great asset to this site.
    February 11 09:50 AM
  • tempest-- Awesome, good luck dude. I really hope you get it :D
    January 24 07:40 PM
  • tempest-- Hey man, are you intending on applying for contributing reviewer?
    January 24 05:06 PM
  • Voivod ok thanks mate!
    January 8 06:25 PM
  • Voivod I saw your soundoff about the new Tad Morose album, are you thinking of reviewing it? I'm asking because I have written a review already, which will be posted during the next few days, if all go well.
    January 8 05:37 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Happy new year Robert, wish you all the best.
    December 31 02:28 PM
  • Calc no, thank you sir
    May 9 06:31 PM
  • Ecnalzen Thanks! I am looking forward to it.
    May 8 05:36 PM
  • NocteDominum Welcome to the team! Ive sent you the email
    May 6 08:30 AM
  • NocteDominum All i need is an email address for the invite, and a facebook add to get you on the staff page
    May 6 03:14 AM
  • NocteDominum Awesome! They don't have to be new albums, we even have a 'retro' category for album 10plus years old. And the minimum is three a month, which extends to news, streams and interviews as well : ]
    May 6 03:13 AM
  • NocteDominum youd be an asswst dude, let me know if you want in : )
    May 5 08:11 AM
  • Hoppoman Yeah I do, apart from one or two from the 1980s. Which I might get by the time I get around to reviewing that time period.
    April 12 09:32 AM
  • Voivod That's what I thought too when I applied for contrib and staff and reviewing is a hobby for me too, it's just that i scrutinize everything so my reviews ended up worth reading.
    February 24 12:06 PM
  • greg84 I totally understand you, but it's nice to be appreciated from time to time, isn't it? Anyway, I definitely support you and wish you all the best.
    February 24 11:32 AM
  • greg84 Thanks a lot. You were actually on my shortlist. Shame you didn't make it. Keep on writing and cover one new release or two from time to time.
    February 24 11:16 AM
  • Voivod Thanks man. Don't stop the effort, keep writing and that contrib status will be a safe bet.
    February 24 10:07 AM
  • Jethro42 Yeah both bands play folk, but BN are more Celtic, and MA are widely influenced by Pink Floyd, as you can see. Plus Heather Findlay has such a beautiful voice.
    February 21 08:44 PM
  • Jethro42 Yes I personally discovered both Blackmore's Night and Mostly Autumn at the same time, and I found myself abandoning Blackmore's Night, cos I prefered MA over it.
    February 21 04:12 PM
  • Eclecticist No problem!
    February 17 05:32 PM
  • Eclecticist Email: (the owner of TAR). In your email, a) introduce yourself, b) mention that you were recommended by me (Joshua Hummel), c) tell a little about yourself, d) include some URL's of what you think are your best reviews, and lastly e) say why it is that you review albums and what it is you seek to gain by becoming a part of TAR's staff writing team.
    February 17 12:24 PM
  • Eclecticist let me know
    February 17 11:58 AM
  • Eclecticist Hey dude I read some of your reviews, including the Benediction one that you posted yesterday, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing for The Alternative Review? You'd be required to review brand new albums within 2 weeks of their release but you seem very apt at writing in general so I don't believe that this would be a problem.
    February 17 02:14 AM
  • greg84 It's a bit too late now. The voting closed last weak. Cheers.

  • LarryArms gayest year ever 2011 is for pussies
    September 30 02:34 PM
  • TheNotrap Yeah 'Subterranea' is really an awesome work. IQ is one of the most underrated UK bands of the past 30 years. And thanks for your kind comment on Marillion's review.
    July 23 12:33 PM
  • TheNotrap Sweet news man. The concept is very cinematographic, so with the right director, actors and budget, it has everything to become a great movie. Thanks for info man.
    July 14 05:48 PM
  • TheNotrap Your review didn't deserve a neg man. Stay true.
    May 28 07:48 PM
  • greg84 Believe it or not, but some people specialize in this stuff.
    March 15 11:39 AM
  • greg84 Hmm. I actually looked it out at message boards and figured out what happened. UhhKris has reported your ratings to the mods for some strange reason. Sadly, you can't bring them back. I'd be furious too if I were you.
    March 14 08:07 PM
  • greg84 Hmm. What happened to your ratings dude?
    March 14 08:14 AM
  • Xenophanes well it leaked and it's kinda lame : [
    February 28 01:02 AM
  • Xenophanes So did the new Terrorizer leak or is that an anticipation rating?
    February 20 10:23 PM
  • greg84 I like your Dixie Witch rating. You seem to be the only one user to check this out apart from me. Keep on rocking!
