Thrice The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II
There are bands who should never touch the idea of a concept- Green Day, for example. However, there are bands who can, and should utilise the niché. Thrice's Alchemy Index looks to prove the formerly post-hardcore, now somewhat genre hopping giants, are firmly part of the second category. Fire correlates more with previous albums like Illusion of Safety, with a strong heavy element running through it. Water, by way of contrast, is like a more angular, and more rewarding Vheissu, with Thrice's relatively new-found lightness providing the tone. Thrice have a tough act to follow with the second Alchemy Index set, as this one is pretty damn near perfect

4.0 excellent

Muse Random 1-8
Whilst Random 1-8 is not an EP for the casual Muse listener, it still easily contains some of their best work. With songs like Forced In and Agitated showing the less radio-friendly side of their talents and songs like Coma showing the mix of good hooks and a slight poppiness that would serve them in good stead. As already said, not a CD for the casual listener, but for Muse fans old and new, this is a good purchase.

3.5 great

A great album with some amazing tracks on it, but let down seriously by others. "Digitalism in Cairo" is probably the best track on the album

Muse Absolution Tour
When a band who are acclaimed as the Best live act in the world put out a second live DVD, you would think it would be stellar, right?
So Wrong
Absolution tour is an anti-climax of a DVD that could and should have been so much better, saved from being abysmal by a few brilliant extras, this DVD is sub-par at best.
Just Buy Hullabaloo
Muse The Resistance
The Strokes Room on Fire
We Are The Physics Are OK at Music
Nothing special from Glasgow's first (and possibly only) "mutant science punk rock" band. "OK at music" is a weak album propped up by one or two very listenable tracks

1.5 very poor
Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip Logic of Chance
While Dan le Sac has upped his game on the duo's second album, Scroobius Pip's lyrical ability rarely shines through. The beats save the album from being totally abysmal, as does Last Train Home, but as a whole, It's probably not unfair to say that Logic of Chance is entirely forgettable

1.0 awful
Green Day Bullet In A Bible
Korn Take a Look in the Mirror
Ricky Martin Ricky Martin
