4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a few listens for the Eugene magic, 11 July 2014
This review is from: Chroma (Audio CD)
Chroma is not as immediate as its predecessors but after a few listens, the Eugene magic reaches you. Every album he has released has been unique, and this is no different! Loving stand out tracks 'Godiva' (which is virtually one chord the whole way through, and is still amazing!), the next 2 tracks and 'Heart Of Chrome'. Give these songs multiple listens and you will love it as much as his other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real grower, 16 Mar 2014
This review is from: Love Letters (Audio CD)
After the first listen, you could be forgiven for feeling slightly underwhelmed with this album, but after that the songs stick in your brain and you end up loving this album. Different from anything they've done before, and still awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something New From Macca, 1 Nov 2013
This review is from: New (Audio CD)
Sir Paul McCartney's new album continues in the line of the great albums he has been releasing since 1997s Flaming Pie. While his voice is not as strong as it used to be, he uses this to his advantage (Early Days, Scared)
It opens with Save Us, a great rocker already a live favourite. Produced by Paul Epworth, it was made up on the spot in the studio and Macca plays all instruments bar drums.
Next is Alligator, produced by Mark Ronson. This one contains some fantastic lyrics such as 'I need somebody who's a sweet communicator I can give my alligator to'.
After Alligator comes On My Way To Work. At first I wasn't so keen on this Giles Martin produced track, but it is definitely a grower.
This is followed by Queenie Eye, the great second single. The song is based on a street game Liverpudlians used to play and is classic Macca.
Next comes Early Days, a mostly acoustic number that reminisces Paul's pre-fame days with John that was produced by Ethan Johns.
What follows is the title track and lead single New. Very easy to listen to, this Ronson produced track could easily nestle in amongst the songs of Revolver or Abbey Road.
Appreciate follows and is the most forward thinking thing on the album. It was produced by Giles Martin.
Everybody Out There was born to be a crowd pleaser.
Hosanna is the second acoustic song on the album, again produced by Ethan Johns.
This is followed by I Can Bet, a modern version of Get Back. 'What I'm gonna do next I'll leave entirely to your imagination'
Looking At Her is a simple love song by Macca, probably written about Nancy, who was a large part of the inspiration for this album.
The final track on the standard album, Road, is a fantastically atmospheric track produced by Paul Epworth, and like Save Us, it was made up in the studio.
The first of the deluxe tracks, Turned Out is a fun little number, very easy to listen to.
This is followed by Get Me Out Of Here ('I'm a celebrity, someone get me out of here') a depart from the rest of the album with some unusual instruments featuring.
The final track is hidden track Scared. It only features piano and vocals, and Paul's voice is wonderfully frail.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Best Albums So For This Year!!!!!!!!!!, 27 May 2011
This review is from: Colour Of The Trap (Audio CD)
Miles Kane's debut album is incredible. Its one of my favourite albums of the year so far. My favourite track is closing track 'Colour of The Trap' which is stripped back and bueatiful, yet simple. Other gems include: My Fantasy which has harmonies done by Noel Gallagher; Rearrange which is a very simple repeted chord sequence that works really well.
A great album, which i recommend to everyone.


What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
Price: £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars What Did You THINK Of The Vaccines?, 23 April 2011
What did you expect from the Vaccines? I wasn't expecting it to be this good. The Vaccines are bringing back what music is all about. The music of today is rubbish dance anthems. The Vaccines are what is great about music. It is the Ramones/ The Editors, which is a great combination.
My Favourite Tracks Are:
If You Wanna
Post Break-Up Sex
A Lack of Understanding
Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)
