Album Review: ‘Unimagine’ by Hands Like Houses

Posted: July 23, 2013 at 2:11 am   /   CD Reviews, Local, Music, Reviews

Perhaps it’s something they put in the water, but three of my favorite bands in recent memory have all hailed from the land down under. Back when I briefly played bass for a metal band(!), I was introduced to a metalcore band called Parkway Drive, an extremely talented brutal assault on your eardrums. After them […]

Throwback Thursday Volume 2 – Bel Biv Devoe

Posted: March 10, 2010 at 11:26 pm   /   CD Reviews, Local

I checked what was next on the list of number one albums only to find out it was a greatest hits album.  While greatest hits albums are nice to have, I feel that they should be exempt from lists because I see them as a cheat.  What I mean is the band/artist just took their […]
