The Killers – Pressure Machine

I received a request to review Pressure Machine, the 7th studio album by The Killers. I haven’t heard the last few Killers albums so I’m looking forward to checking out their new album. I’ve found them to be very hit or miss in the past, some songs I love and some I can’t stand, so let’s see if this album follows that trend. Oh boy, … Continue reading The Killers – Pressure Machine

Tre Said – All Those City Lights

    I received a request to review All Those City Lights, the debut album from Tre Said, a power trio from Barcelona.

It’s a pretty consistent album throughout. Most of the songs … Continue reading Tre Said – All Those City Lights

This could easily be a Queens of the Stone Age song. … Continue reading Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Wrong Creatures

Weezer – Weezer (Black Album)

Weezers 13th album and 6th self-titled album. And if you count their cover album it’s their 5th album in as many years, so we know where they stand on quantity vs. quality. This album strays a bit from their usual formula. Can’t Knock the Hustle has Latin rhythms. A lot of the tracks have piano, acoustic guitars, or electronic instruments. It also marks their 99th … Continue reading Weezer – Weezer (Black Album)
