  • Album Review: Everything Will Be Alright In The End

    How do you even go about reviewing a Weezer record in 2014? After recording, arguably, two of the most influential rock records of the last 20 years – the band’s 1994 debut self-titled, “Blue” album and 1996’s Pinkerton – each album that followed saw diminished creativity, mixed with some...
  • Album Review: Mind Over Matter

    California indie rockers Young the Giant premiered their sophomore album, Mind Over Matter, on Jan. 21. More technically sound and rounded than the first album, Young the Giant proves through the new tracks just how much they have grown as a band. In the beginning of their career, they...
  • Album Review: Direct Hits

    After four successful studio albums, The Killers came out with “Direct Hits” on Nov. 11, a compilation of the band’s greatest hits along with a few new tracks. Their last album, “Runaways,” was released almost a year ago, but the 10th anniversary of star-defining hit “Mr. Brightside” demands special...
  • Album Review: Bangerz

    Miley Cyrus released her fourth studio album Bangerz on October 4 and it is taking the pop culture world by surprise. This is the first album Cyrus has made in three years, and it is pretty obvious that this isn’t the same Miley we knew and tolerated – if...
  • Album Review: Artpop

    It has been a while since Lady Gaga put her paws up to the world that she created. After her escalation to major fame with 2011’s “Born This Way” and a successful world tour, she sort of disappeared. Of course, she was put on the disabled list when she endured...
  • Album Review: Kiss Land

    In 2010, the city of Toronto experienced a brutal winter just like every year once December rolls around. However, something was different about this particular snow-fallen season. Three songs by the name of “What You Need”, “Loft Music” and “The Morning” were mysteriously uploaded to YouTube by a local...
  • Album Review: Days Are Gone

    The three sisters of Haim (rhymes with time) dropped their debut album, Days Are Gone, on Sept. 30, and the days of them not being a household name are now gone. Hailing from San Fernando Valley, California, these girls are bringing down the house with their indie-pop tunes and...
  • Album Review: Two Lanes of Freedom

    Tim McGraw has had the career that every Nashville newcomer dreams of duplicating. Not only is he one of the most recognizable names in country, not only has he had more than 20 No. 1 hits, but he is also one of the main contributors to country music in...
  • Album Review: Long.Live.A$AP

    Los Angeles took the hip-hop torch in 2012 and ran numerous laps, while being anchored by cohorts from the Odd Future camp (most notably Frank Ocean) and the Black Hippy crew (thanks to Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut). New York may have an unlikely answer to last year’s West...
  • Album Review: Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors

    Big Boi aka Sir Lucious L. Leftfoot aka The Son of Chico Dusty aka Daddy Fat Sax are all back for the second installment from the other half of heralded hip-hop duo OutKast’s solo career. Since launching his debut studio album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico...
  • Album Review: ¡Dos!

    Since entering the second phase of a lengthy career in 2004 with the grandiose rock-opera American Idiot, Green Day has ditched the outsider image on which punk was found, in favor of arena-ready tunes meant to propel them into the limelight. Ambitious, sometimes to a fault, Green Day has...
