Is it worth mentioning that I don’t like the cover? Feels like it should have been the back cover. It doesn’t give you an idea of what’s inside at all. I feel a snowy cabin with a trail of woodsmoke rising from the chimney, or something more folky. Anyway. The album…
Ian McCuen - Westward, to Nowhere

I had the Believe and Is There Any Love In Your Heart singles, plus i loved Are You Gonna Go My Way. Strange. So it was very much a step back inside the head of my 13 year old self when I started listening to this all the way through for the first time does it stand up? Are there anything tracks worth their salt after the singles? Not really. Sister is ok. Black girl ... read more

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
