January 31, 2005

Know that song “Heaven” by The Fire Theft? Imagine a full album of such lustful pleading, soul-salvation, and engorged orchestral accompaniment.

The F-Ups – Review

January 31, 2005

The F-Ups bring us fast, pumping pop punk about having to go to school, dealing with parents, and, of course, awkward sexual situations.

Motörhead – Inferno – Review

January 24, 2005

Don’t expect too many surprises, except maybe that they’re still so good. The acoustic closer is a side of the band that hasn’t reared its head too often.

January 24, 2005

January 24, 2005
