Norma Jean – Redeemer – Review

March 12, 2007

Little more than a pleasant genre band, one of thousands, and all the artist graphic design in the booklet doesn’t make the music any better.

Aiden – Rain in Hell – Review

March 12, 2007

Just because Aiden wear eyeliner and cheerleading gossip queens wet their panties over them doesn’t mean they blow. They’re fun, and this EP/DVD shows that.

Borknagar – Origin – Review

March 12, 2007

An acoustic album with flutes and shit. Vintersorg’s voice can break hearts, but I just can’t get passed the freakin’ flutes.

Bambix – Club Matuchek – Review

March 12, 2007

Female-fronted three-piece punkpop from The Netherlands, been around for a few years, play solid pop-oriented punk with real tunes and style in spades.

Tricky Bizzniss – Review

March 12, 2007

Former vocalist of The Crystal Method, Trixie Reiss, and two-time Grammy nominee Ernie Lake. Cheesy dance music so bad I had to shut it off while typing this.

Die Hunns – You Rot Me – Review

March 12, 2007

This ain’t punk rock from end to end, it ain’t roots rock, it’s r&b-influenced rock’n’roll, but on the level of a cover band from the ’70s without the chops.

The Queers – Munki Brain – Review

March 12, 2007

25 years and still making sweet bubblegum punkpop. Joe Queer can pen a simple, fun ditty effortlessly, and he’s been collaborating with Lisa Marr for years.

The Fades – Review

March 12, 2007

I love most of these tunes, usually the garage bop stuff, but a few songs have me checking to see if I switched to the next band’s CD, which I hate instantly.

The Elastik Band – Review

March 12, 2007

In 1967, The Elastik Band released one of the most notorious records ever entitled Spazz. Hear their entire works, most never before released, on this CD.

Darkest Hour – Archives – Review

March 12, 2007

Earliest Darkest Hour recordings so you can appreciate how much better they are now. I’ve reviewed them a bunch, but I don’t remember them ever being this bad.

Marvel – Ultimate Alliance – Review

March 9, 2007

Top-down Gauntlet-style hack and slash adventure, this distinguishes itself by offering the most colorful, detailed environments ever seen in this type of game.

Snowbyrd – Review

March 9, 2007

These are rock guys moving into rootsier music. The vocalist sounds a bunch like Big Audio Dynamite/Clash singer Mick Jones. Friendly and kinda wistful.
