Creepshow
John Harrison

9/10 according to our Mike on 25th April 2014

I've already been having a bit of a gripe this morning about the overpriced soundtrack reissues that are flooding into our shop, with Mondo's new 'The Omen' reissue costing a wallet-lightening £30. Well this one isn't much cheaper but in terms of getting your money's worth I think it's a more satisfying package, with nice thick card sleeve…view full details.

Live At The Pezner
Thee Majesty

7/10 according to our Mike on 25th April 2014

"I seem to remember that somebody said that we were cheating because Genesis P-Orridge wasn't here," insists Genesis P-Orridge in the opening seconds of this, my third live album of the day. "Well of course he's not. After all, why the hell would Genesis P. Orridge come to Lyon?" And so begins our lengthy …view full details.

Live Rain
Howlin Rain

7/10 according to our Mike on 25th April 2014

Here's album number two in my "live album corner" for this week, 'Live Rain' by Howlin Rain. It's strident Americana-rawk from the Blueshammer school of subtlety, the vocal affectations are getting on my nerves quite quickly. The gatefold has loads of photos so you can look at the beardy man shouting at the microphone and close your eyes and ima…view full details.

Novos Mistérios
Ninos Du Brasil

7/10 according to our Ant on 24th April 2014

I think it’s probably fair to say this is somewhat of an unusual release for Hospital Productions although the labels interests have clearly been evolving recently. ‘Novos Mistérios’ is the second album from Nicolò Fortuni and Nico Vascellari recording as …view full details.

Crystal Cult 2080
Legowelt

8/10 according to our Ant on 24th April 2014

Danny Wolfers discography seemingly increases by the day, recording under many different names, his Legowelt guise is by far his most well known and loved. As Legowelt he’s produced some cracking albums which I happily part with money to obtain but I had to steal a digital downl…view full details.

Toxic Cosmopolitanism
Kassel Jaeger

9/10 according to our Ant on 24th April 2014

‘Toxic Cosmopolitanism’ is the fifth album I’ve had the pleasure of hearing from Kassel Jaeger and like the others before it, I find the sound worlds he creates within to be infinitely fascinating. I say this for the simple reason I pretty much can’t clearly identify any particular soun…view full details.

Theo Parrish has unearthed a pair of previously unreleased vintage Chicago, late 80’s acid house gems and given them a well deserved vinyl issue via his Sound Signature label. I adore this golden era of house music. You can hear how stuff like this booming out…view full details.

The Good Egg
Led Bib

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

I have not one but three live albums on my review stack this week, and the first one I'm going to tackle is this lively bit of Scandi-style jazz fusion from Led Bib, recorded live at the Vortex Jazz Club in London. It's a bubbly and energetic brew ably led by percussionist Mark Holub, whose highly kinetic style contains more than a trace of clas…view full details.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

Super-duo A Winged Victory For The Sullen's self-titled debut was an unmitigated triumph, earning rave reviews across the board and flying off our shelves as quickly as we could restock it. It's exciting to see that Dustin O'Halloran and Adam Wiltzie are at it again, with this 12" being the first taster …view full details.

The Omen: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Jerry Goldsmith

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

Does anybody else think this horror reissue situation is getting a bit out of hand? Not that these recordings aren't welcome back on vinyl, but the limited-edition pay-through-the-nose aspect seems to be ramping up. This week, should you so desire, you can spend £30 on a single LP of Jerry Goldsmith's iconic score to one of the genre-defin…view full details.

Everything Remixes
Neneh Cherry

7/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

The privilege of reviewing Neneh Cherry's new album went to our Brian this time round, and such is her popularity around the office that despite repeated attempts since before its release I still haven't been able to borrow our communal promo of it, so today I'm in the unenviable position of having to write about two remixes of 'Everything' with…view full details.

Histrionic
Maria Minerva

4/10 according to our Clinton on 24th April 2014

Am I missing the point if I say that the vocals on opener ‘The Beginning’ are waaay out of key with the track? Its sounds like a young lass singing along to a backing track in some kind of ‘get the kids off the streets’ youth programme. Get the lady a copy of melodyne before my ears explode. On the second track th…view full details.

Triumph And Power
Grand Magus

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

Our headbanging friends at Nuclear Blast have sent us this latest album from Swedish metal veterans Grand Magus, who peddle a chunky and theatrical sound full of chugging power chords and squealing vocal harmonies and no apparent sense of irony as they belt out fist-pumping couplets like "As we ride the wind and fly/On hooves of gold we ride" an…view full details.
