REVIEW: Karen O / Danger Mouse – ‘Lux Prima’ (BMG)

‘Lux Prima’ by Karen O and Danger Mouse is an expansive and sonically enchanting album and a truly unforgettable experience.  

REVIEW: The Prodigy – ‘No Tourists’ (BMG / Take Me To The Hospital)

Much more than just battle-hardened survivors, The Prodigy’s latest album ‘No Tourists’ finds them in fresher form than at any point in the last decade.

REVIEW: Ash – ‘Islands’ (BMG / Infectious)

Seventh album ‘Islands’ finds Ash in dynamic but uneven form, with the slower tracks and ballads edging out their regular pop-punk glories for the first time ever.

REVIEW: Morrissey – ‘Low In High School’ (BMG)

Aside from the controversy surrounding its release, Morrissey’s 11th studio album ‘Low In High School’ is an exhausting listen that tries too hard to hammer home the socio-political commentary.

REVIEW: Sparks – ‘Hippopotamus’ (BMG)

Sparks’ first studio album in eight years, ‘Hippopotamus’, is either brilliant or naff depending on your outlook, but it’s most definitely enjoyable.

REVIEW: The Charlatans – ‘Different Days’ (BMG)

For their 13th album ‘Different Days’, The Charlatans raid their contacts list to help them produce their best album in two decades.

REVIEW: Blondie – ‘Pollinator’ (Noble / BMG)

‘Pollinator’ stays true to Blondie’s classic sound while keeping it relevant and fresh for 2017, and shows there’s plenty of life in the band yet.
