Album Reviews

If one of my favorite bands release a new album, I usually pick it up on iTunes or at a local music store. Once I listen to the album a few times, I will post a review and then link to it here on this page.

The format of my album review is pretty straight forward: a short commentary on where I am at with the band to provide some context for the album and then I like to write about the album itself; what works, what doesn’t, how it compares to other releases, etc. I then move into a list of the best 3 tracks on the album and the other standout tracks on the album. And as with every post I make here on this blog, I finish up with some links of interest regarding the band, and high resolution pictures of the singles and album cover.

Click on the album titles or pictures below to be taken to the full album review. Thanks for reading.
