200th review and last of the Lemon Demon discography run, let’s do this!

We all like stories of all sorts, fictional or non-fictional. It's the reason we have so many forms of medium to express story-telling ranging from books to music to movies to comics, and everything else in-between.

Despite of the over-bearing spooky Halloween vibes the album gives off (from the album art to the sounds), the album is actually quite lush in stories of all varieties from conspiracy theorists to ... read more

This is as straight-forward as you can get in terms of Punk Rock music.

Every song is jam-packed with speed, snot-nosed vocals and power chords along with lyrics about how your parents and school are oppressing your energies and vibes everyday.

It's the music you listen to after complaining about ... read more

For when you need to scratch that itch between punk and pop-punk.

Most listeners of this project probably came from Green Day, so it goes without saying that as a diehard Green Day fan myself, I'm going to talk about Billie's performance.

Not as bad as I remembered surprisingly but certainly not what I would be expecting from the band.

From the production to the style of things, everything just screams 2000s radio music to me. The album feels a lot to me like the band trying to go after radio rock similar to stuff like The Script/Snow Patrol and ... read more

Whilst not containing as much filler as Even If It Kills Me, My Dinosaur Life still lacks that certain punch that makes the band's first two albums so memorable to me.

A lot of the songs feel very watered down or unoriginal, being very distinctly pop-punk without straying into any interesting directions or territories which leads to predictability which may be unbearably bad for most people. Personally there's noting wrong with that, I'm still a sucker for pop-punk after all; but I ... read more
