Although lyrically poor at times, "Hendra" by Ben Watt (previously one-half of Everything But the Girl) excels with its relaxed summery charm, complimented by the breezy guitar lines of Suede's Bernard Butler ("The Levels" even features slide guitar/backing vocals from David Gilmour).

Behind all the sloppy punk goodness, Cloud Nothings have put intricate care into this - the hooks creep out with
each repeat listen, making the album that bit more enjoyable each time. Where as Attack On Memory grew off
me pretty fast, I just keep coming back to this.

Don't usually like this type of music, but this is great. A chilling tale told with the usual screamed/shouted vocals and good lyrics. I also like the atmosphere the guitarists create.
Deftones Saturday Night Wrist3.5
Deftones Diamond Eyes4.0
Deftones Koi No Yokan4.0
Here deftones expertly master their distinctive meld of dreamy metal. No, their sound has
not changed; Chino's voice still melts over the pounding rhythm section and the whirling
fuzz of distortion (occasionally coming up for air with a meaty riff or two--see the latter
half of "Tempest"). But the material here is so good that the stasis is more of a
consistency. rOn paper, opener "Swerve city" is a disaster. The headbanging riff pounds,
reassuring the band have not quite abandoned their metal roots, and before we know it, we're
straight into a verse that swerves and swirls under Chino's vocals. And then it's back to
the riff. But it works, and serves as a perfect introduction for what's to come. rEven the
tracks that drift furthest away from the band's nu-metal roots (the beautiful "Entombed" and
closer "What happened to you?), whose sound resembles that of Chino's side project
"Crosses", have something (maybe in the guitar lines that accompany their souring choruses)
that is distinctively Deftones about them. Great album.r"Shapes and colours are all I see."

Duff McKagan's Loaded The Taking3.5
Most of the tracks on 'The Taking' punch you in the face with their hard rock-meets-grunge approach, helped by the low-end production. It's the commercial tracks (e.g. "We Win" SPEW) that let this down.

coming back to this.

The guitar work is the highlight for me. The guitars twinkle over the rhythm section creating a
sort of warm, hazy sound (nicely encapsulating the purple of the album art,) that's somewhat
shoegaze-influenced--especially in harmony with the clean vocals. The screamed vocals sound out of
place to me though and all-in-all, it's midwest emo we've all heard before.

6 Feet Deep oozes fun. The Gravediggaz' shockingly good rhymes are coupled with a halloween-ready
soundtrack that's trippy, yet completely danceable, and never lets up the fun. For me, 6 Feet Deep
has all I could ask for from a hip-hop album.

After hearing 'Take me down' from Mellon collie I had to hear this. Granted, nothing here really sounds like that song, or any other song in the Pumpkins' discography for that matter. But it's a pleasant record full of sunny, country-tinged, 70s soft rock.

listening to it.

Sithu Aye Cassini3.5
It is in the second half of the album -as its true prog colours are shown- where Cassini shines. The first half falls victim to pedictable song structures and downtuned riffs that chug, chug, chug. EXCELLENT guitar work, though, and the fact that pretty much all of this was done by one guy amazes me!
Sithu Aye Invent the Universe3.5
another solid release from Sithu Aye, even if some of those riffs and jazzy interludes are losing their punch.

Sylosis Edge of the Earth3.5
Sylosis have crafted what is an excellent piece of modern thrash metal here, possessing an instrumental section that is almost flawless to listen to. The album does, however, run for 70+ minutes - way longer than it should, and the vocals occasionally come off as weak in comparison to the rest of the band. With a few minor tweaks, these guys will be putting out a classic in the near future - no doubt. Heads up for a new album in the works....Safe!

Not a terrible album, but many of the tracks struggle to push beyond mediocrity. 'El Paso' and 'You Got Me' are awesome, though, and John Nolan's backing vocals make a welcome return.

"Just a slight guitar injection", a cool Phil Lynott shouts in Nightlife's opening track, right before we get a first taste of the twin-guitar harmonies that defined Lizzy's career. In comparison to later releases, Nightlife is best described as laid-back, but it is a gem of an album in a discography that is largely underrated.
