Rock Band: Band in a Box (Xbox 360) by Electronic Arts

Review title says it all basically.

As another reviewer said, Amazon's discount from the RRP is commendable but that's not the point. I've been looking forward to this game for months, but the release date has been put further and further back - originally it was meant to come out in January, then March and now August (unless you have an Xbox360, which I don't).

And the newly announced prices are a step too far. It's just obscene and extortionate. I hope the developers will amend this before it's released.

NB: This review doesn't concern the game itself, which I'm sure is as good as all the US reviewers claim it is.

Thirteen Senses are one of several new bands to grab my attention this year, and their debut album impressed me greatly. It was a bit of an impulse buy, to say the least... I didn't hear the first two singles (Thru The Glass and Do No Wrong) when they were first released... after hearing the last half of Into The Fire one night, I went out the next morning to buy the album and haven't looked back since.
Lately it seems that any band that uses a piano is inevitably going to be compared to Coldplay and Keane. Maybe that's not surprising. However, I think that not only do Thirteen Senses get a better mix of guitar and piano than Coldplay usually manage to, they have better songs than both… Read more
