5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.

2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

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.

8/29/2018 - Review by: David Loveless
Three long tracks of gloomy, psychedelic art rock/metal with a creepy vibe
Belgium's Briqueville have unleashed their second slab of psychedelic art rock simply titled 'II'. These three long tracks of mostly instrumental compositions clock in at 42 minutes long. That means plenty of slow starts, buildup, and--lucky for us--excellent climatic endings. Although there are no vocals, there are several spots of spoken word, adding to the mystique of the songs. If you're patient enough, you will enjoy these songs very much! It's hard to pick a favorite since there are just three tracks on here. However, I will say that each songs brings a different vibe to the album and all together create a great listening experience.
