Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

This UK band has hints of Manilla Road and Slough Feg throughout this sophomore entry. The four piece build the album with plenty of traditionalism and nod to the old school. It is self-released and recorded in only five days which is a catch twenty-two. The DIY effort is admirable yet the dynamics suffer from the rushed albeit resourceful production. It is unconventional lyrically but the musicality is drenched in new wave. This is good, but the band could be approaching something more innovative.
