This might be the best album I've heard from Nick Cave, and that's saying a lot.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are a quintessential band if you're into weird, dark, emotional and classy alternative rock that focuses on songwriting and poetry-like lyricism with no fixed pattern of instrumentation. Each song is adorned with the sounds that are most fitting to the intended mood and tone rather than just being guitar-drums-bass-centric, and that's quite on display especially in this mid-section of ... read more

This album sure as hell ain't fly.

I should have known by the atrocious album cover that this album would be crap. I didn't listen to my instincts and well...

I love The Neptunes. I love Pharrell's production in a solo capacity as well. I adore In Search Of... and No_one Ever Really Dies - truly fantastic albums by N.E.R.D., but having listened to this unremarkable bore so many times, I feel too drained to even attempt trying out Seeing Sounds. I won't even comment about the other dud in ... read more

These guys are brilliant.

A heavily-distorted bass, rapid-fire drums and very passionate vocals with some really cool song topics as well as swagger-filled, at times even cocky, lyrics make this album so fucking rock n' roll (I usually dislike this term, but it applies to this record perfectly).

Sexy Results is as sexy as the title implies, Romantic Rights is savage and powerful, Black History Month builds up so fantastically and tracks like Little Girl are beyond cool.

In fact, I don't ... read more

I can't believe this came out in 1968. Silver Apples is a band name I've had lodged in my head, and I always related them to electronic music, but I have no idea where I first heard of them.

Regardless, it took Kevin Parker talking about the drums of the bombastic and eerily futuristic-sounding song Program off this album to remind me where the associations in my mind come from.

Silver Apples was a unique duo for the 60s, marrying together an acoustic drumkit with very primitive synthesizers ... read more
