Ladies Of The Canyon was the third album by Joni Mitchell, originally released in 1970. The album is more artistically expansive than her previous albums, giving a glimpse of what she’d later become on albums such as Blue and The Hissing Of Summer Lawns. It is notable for containing tw...view item
Blue by Joni Mitchell is a masterpiece. Originally released in 1971, the album was inspired by travel, it was partly written on her travels around Europe, and her ailing relationship with Graham Nash. Joni ended the relationship whilst writing the album. An absolute must have for any collection. LP on Reprise....view item
"That's not the real Neil" barked a particularly discerning Neil Young fan when I dared to suggest that 'Harvest' was my favourite album. Proper fans may prefer 'Trans' but for any newcomer to Neil Young, this is the one to start with. It's a lovely late '60's folk album with a consistent feel throughout and a sound that set the blueprint for hi...view item
I'm sorry to say that this is my favourite movie of all time. Howard Shore's soundtrack to the first edition in the Rings trilogy captures both the overcast darkness and total tweedom of Tolkein's novels. Since director Peter Jackson loves his extended versions and drawn out releases, why not&nbs...view item
Reissue of Fleetwood Mac’s classic eponymous 1975 album, the first they released with their most iconic line-up, and which laid the foundations for their world-beating future. The album is available on CD, deluxe CD, and in a very deluxe box set featuring alternate takes, live recordings, and a surround and stereo mix....view item
Neil Young + Promise Of The Real
For many years now, Neil’s M.O. has been to rush into the studio and unburden himself of whatever his latest preoccupation might be. Unsurprisingly, this time it involves the current occupant of the White House. Young’s always had a habit of proclaiming his US patriotism, but here at least, the title undercuts the irony of his status...view item
On 'A Letter Home', Young retreats into his folk traditions after a couple of years incorporating drone, psychedelia and noise into his records and live sets. This record was recorded at Jack White's Third Man studio, in the kind of pay-per-use recording booth you would've found way back in the day. Young stepped in and recorded these covers of ...view item
The Motherload is the first single from Mastodon’s sixth album Once More ‘Round The Sun. The four-piece from Atlanta, GA explore themes of recurrence such as loss in death and being reborn. Chunky riffs, atmospheric soundscapes and a high-powered vocal triumvirate create the perfect slab of hard roc...view item
Neil "Pono" Young goes from the plumbing extreme depths of lo-fi folk traditions with 'A Letter Home' to the sleek, obsessively well-produced and tailored 'Storytone', in which he plays with a 92-piece orchestra. Young's work in the past has always landed somewhere between sparse and raw, but this record is symphonic, putting Young's voice in a ...view item
'Once More 'Round The Sun' is Mastodon's sixth record, produced by rock and metal professor Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with a variety of crossover metal bands, including Deftones, as well as proggier outfits like Rush. The record continues to push a version of Mastodon into the public with clean vocals, catchy riffs and an ear for mainstre...view item

The Spotlight Kid is Captain Beefheart’s sixth album, initially released in 1972 with the Magic Band naturally in tow. Following straight on from Trout Mask Replica and Lick My Decals Off, Baby, this record finds the music slowing down somewhat, letting Beefheart...view item
"Being There" was the second album by Wilco and was released in 1996. I think it's their best album, it's a proper double album too. There are hints of the experimentation they used so freely on later recordings on songs such as opener "Misunderstood" but on the whole it's a much more rootsy American rock album.
"Far Far Away" is a lovel...view item
Zwan (Smashing Pumpkins/Billy Corgan/Pajo)
Zwan is that bald man from Smashing Pumpkins (Corgan),
Mr Pajo from Slint and some other folks who don't seem quite as
important right now. Happy go lucky catchy indie guitar rock which is
once again uplifting unlike the doom laden depression of the Pumpkins.
On LP and compact disc...view item
Idiot Pilot confuse the balls off me. It's such a strange sound.....
They utilise the clever electronics that Radiohead do and have a very
similar feel but then it goes all heavy and some nugget starts shrieking
everywhere which is funny at first but wade through an album and the novelty
wares off fast quick like (long sentence I ...view item
