REVIEW: The Flaming Lips – ‘Greatest Hits, Vol.1’ (Warner Bros.)

‘Greatest Hits, Vol.1’, Warner’s attempt to sum up 25 years of The Flaming Lips in three-quarters of an hour, is both unnecessary and inadequate.

REVIEW: Liam Gallagher – ‘As You Were’ (Warner Bros.)

‘As You Were’ is fundamentally solid, but it’s just too hard not to compare it to the brash public persona that Liam Gallagher has constructed and be a touch disappointed.

REVIEW: Royal Blood – ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ (Warner Bros.)

Following their meteoric rise to the top three years ago, Royal Blood stick to their guns and offer up more punishing riffage on ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’

REVIEW: Dua Lipa – ‘Dua Lipa’ (Warner Bros.)

Dua Lipa’s long-awaited debut album is extremely accessible and competent but misses the chance to be truly cutting-edge.

REVIEW: Gorillaz – ‘Humanz’ (Parlophone / Warner Bros.)

Gorillaz’ first proper album in seven years, featuring a galaxy of guest stars, effectively re-boots their sound for 2017, though it’s not as distinctive as it once was.

CLASSIC ’80s: Prince – ‘Sign O’ The Times’

Prince’s 1987 masterpiece ‘Sign O’ The Times’ was arguably the last of its kind – the four-sided vinyl blowout.

REVIEW: The Flaming Lips – ‘Oczy Mlody’ (Warner Bros.)

Whilst some may have hoped for an experimental masterpiece, or a piece of psych-pop bliss, on Ozcy Mlody, the Flaming Lips have kept true to their Terror sound.
