Review: Rush - A Farewell To Kings

It took me a while but I finally managed to finish my review of A Farewell To Kings, the April re-issue from The Twelve Months Of Rush series. This was the first Rush album I heard and it was the one that got me hooked, not only to Rush, but to rock music in general. After all these years, it remains one of my favourite Rush albums.

I am enjoying listening to and reviewing stuff for the Moshville Times but the writing gets squished into what little free time I have, so it takes me a long time to finish things. Let me know what you think of the review either here or on Moshville Times. Is it worth the time it takes me?

Review: The Sun Explodes

I have managed to post another review to Moshville Times. The band is The Sun Explodes and the review is of their latest EP, The Calm, the Storm which will be released on 18 May.

Up until now, I have reviewed bands that I already knew but I had never heard of this band until I was offered the chance to review their work. After one listen, I knew I wanted to hear more. I had to arm wrestle one of the other Moshville crew members for the privilege of reviewing their EP but it was worth it. 

If you read what written, you'll see I am convinced that it is a Concept EP. I've had a bit of correspondence with the band who claim that it is not, but what do they know? They only wrote it. I'm the one who listened!

Comments and constructive criticism welcome either here on on the review at the Moshville site
