Album Reviews: Ane Brun – Duets (2005)


I’m not overly sure why Ane Brun found it neccesary to follow up the highly successful ‘A Temporary Dive’ with an album of duets. What makes it even more surprising is that two of the better songs on it are … Continue reading

Album Review: Jonathan Edwards – Jonathan Edwards (1971)


Jonathan Edwards is another one of those artists I discovered by accident. Basically I bought a record collection off an antique dealer friend of mine who didn’t really know what to do with it. Everything I hadn’t got that looked … Continue reading

Album Review: Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II (1969)


Led Zeppelin II has been called, and held responsible for, many things. From the birth of heavy metal and the first example of a shredding guitar solo to the end of The Beatles reign as Kings of the music world. … Continue reading

Album Review: David Vandervelde – The Moonstation House Band (2007) / Waiting For The Sunrise (2008)


¬†The Moonstation House Band (2007) The first two things that hit you about ‘The Moonstation House Band’ are the lo-fi production which I don’t like at all even though it seems to fit well here and the uncanny vocal resemblence … Continue reading

Album Review: Jonatha Brooke – The Works (2008)


“The Works” is another great set of songs from the criminally under exposed Jonatha Brooke even if it is a little bit of a strange project. I say strange because Jonatha, who is a great lyricist in her own right, … Continue reading

Album Review: Blackmore’s Night – Secret Voyage (2008)


I have to admit that I was one of the doubters who didn’t believe Blackmore’s Night would last this long. Along with many I thought Blackmore would play around with it for a few years before getting bored. How wrong … Continue reading
