Ryan’s Top 30 Albums of the Last 10 Years (2004-2014) Pt. 3 of 3

It’s come to this. Since I’m usually on about something completely ancient, I’ve decided to compile a rough list of my favourite albums over the last ten years. I’ll warn you, there are thirty of them altogether and they span a few different genres. The list is presented in absolutely no particular order. While I’m sure I could… Read More ›

4 Artists To Nap To

Music is not only the ever-present waking soundtrack to my menial activities, I also tend to play albums with the specific intention of carting me off to sleep.

Recently Arrived to Planet Earth: Delta Will “It All Glows” Review

ALBUM REVIEW: Ray Wilson’s “Chasing Rainbows” (2013)

By now it’s no secret that Genesis is pretty much my favourite band of all time, and even though the band has called it quits, it is a distinct joy for me every time one of its former members puts out a record of their own. Ray Wilson is no exception. For those of you just catching… Read More ›

ALBUM REVIEW: True Widow’s “Circumambulation”

True Widow is a band I’ve kept my eye on for a while, trying desperately to draw attention to the unique and seemingly obvious synthesis they’ve created.

Nightmares and Dreamscapes: Spotlight on Dream Theater, Part II

The nearly legendary progressive metal machine known as Dream Theater didn’t simply appear overnight, ladies and gentlemen. Thus, I have decided to take an album-by-album stroll through the band’s history in a series no shorter than three parts long. In the previous article, I ran through the history following the band’s founding in 1985, and toured their first… Read More ›
