REVIEW: Pearl Jam ‘Lightning Bolt’

REVIEW: Pearl Jam ‘Lightning Bolt’

Let me tell you a short story. When I was fifteen years old, I spent several months in Seattle living with a family that hosted students from other countries. At the time, I was a normal kid that was discovering the energizing powers of music and Seattle, was the center of the whole world with […]

REVIEW: Queens Of The Stone Age – ‘. . . Like Clockwork’

REVIEW: Queens Of The Stone Age – ‘. . . Like Clockwork’

Queens of the Stone Age for a little while only served the purpose of purging the fans about the dissolution of Kyuss; but after a couple of more than solid releases and their frantic live schedule, they proved that we were in front of  a band that could be even better than the desert visionaries. […]

REVIEW: Beady Eye – ‘BE’

REVIEW: Beady Eye – ‘BE’

When Beady Eye announced they were working with TV on the Radio’s producer and guitarist David Sitek I’m sure more than one opened their eyes in awe. Beady Eye, a throw-back/retro band that is inspired by classic rock, pop and of course, The Beatles, didn’t give the impression after the release of their solid debut […]

REVIEW: Lil Wayne – ‘I’m Not a Human Being II’

REVIEW: Lil Wayne – ‘I’m Not a Human Being II’

There are a big number of people that keep saying that Lil Wayne has no talent at all, that he’s insane, and that he’s a fake. I don’t know the man personally but it’s hard for me to believe that an artist that has been recording since he was 11 years old and that has […]

REVIEW: Justin Timberlake – ‘The 20/20 Experience’

REVIEW: Justin Timberlake – ‘The 20/20 Experience’

Justin Timberlake has already demonstrated everything. He has a soft falsetto that is instantly recognizable; he is a more than a decent actor and a good guy that especially knows how to deliver a great live show. He has charm and charisma, but he still has to create an album that can put him next […]

Meshuggah @ The Wiltern Theatre – 03/02/2013

Meshuggah @ The Wiltern Theatre – 03/02/2013

The name of this tour is absolutely wrong. The Ophidian Trek should have been called “The Tour of the Gargantuas”. Meshuggah, Animals as Leaders and Intronaut are bands known for their progressive elements and outstanding musicianship but also intense heaviness, and tonight that’s what we got. I’m really happy for the attention that Meshuggah has […]

REVIEW: Atoms for Peace – ‘Amok’

REVIEW: Atoms for Peace – ‘Amok’

“Supergroup” is for sure a misleading word that has been used for years to “hype” certain music releases that, in most cases, have produced disastrous results. Atoms for Peace is one of those “groups” affected by the disease of a delusive promise. Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker (R.E.M, Beck) and Mauro Refosco (Forro […]

REVIEW: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – ‘Push the Sky Away’

REVIEW: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – ‘Push the Sky Away’

Push the Sky Away is like a good stew. It needs to boil slowly but surely so you can taste the amazing flavors in it. All the magical ingredients that have made Cave and his untouchable Seeds reach the heavens of music are here, more domesticated musically but also refined. The influence of Cave’s side […]
