A Grand Don't Come for Free really is, narratively, a musical experience like no other, and probably the most 'cinematic' album I'll ever listen to. Evidentially, Skinner has a very love it or hate it vocal style and I really do respect the way this album confuses Americans en masse. This is one of the first of those 'Propa British' albums I ever listened to and from then onward this album has had a pretty big role in my life.

Strangely, There's a few songs on here that I don't LOVE. An ... read more

I have seen this album described as sounding like 'Pixies having a knife fight with Blur on Brighton beach' and after presenting that simile I don't even feel the need to describe Silent Alarm in any further detail.

So sweet yet so street. This was Bloc Party at their best. Kele Okereke's obscurely substantial lyricism, his searing and impassioned vocal emotion. The brilliant guitar and bass work which could boast both crunching rock riffage and tender ambient melody. And of course the mental ... read more

If anybody knows where I can listen to this and their other album 'Gimmick' It'd be much appreciated. Those 2 arent on any streaming platforms in the UK and I am desperate to hear them.

At least here those tacky production choices present in Lana's other early projects dont make an appearance. Though I'm not sure there are many production choices of noteability at all on this one. Not to say the arrangements dont have smooth and uplifting qualities, they do. But for better or worse there aren't really any sounds that jump out. Her vocals, as per usual, are what hold this project together.

I also think her very sophisticated and sheltering vocal delivery can(almost ... read more

Baby Xiu Xiu is the least adorable baby you'll ever come across.

A completely horrid, obnoxious and directionless mess of musical debris that sounds like the musical equivalent to a manic murder spree.

I like it.

So true! Its best to listen when the time is right rather than just jam it all down your ears... that way you are less likely to under-appreciate things.

Supp! I'm doing a challenge at the moment, the "out of my comfort-zone challenge". This is a challenge where I need to listen projects, I normally wouldn't listen too. After some listen I need to state my opinions in a review. If you would suggest an album to me, it would be great! As long as they aren't metal, hip hop or rap! (experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)

I'll write some fuller reviews but im more settled just writing a few lines to have my brief thoughts on a project appear on my profile. Taking a break from reviewing for a while but I'll be back writing again when im a little more skilled at it. Still welcoming any reccomendations!
