Black Label Society “Order of the Black”

Music is written for different reasons.  I like to categorize it into two groups:  musicians who write music to express themselves and musicians who write music not for themselves, but for others.  Both groups have fans: the former group has fans in those who relate to what the band is …

GlassJAw “Coloring Book EP”

GlassJAw, no stranger to frequent line up changes, is truly a diamond in the rough in the world of post-rock.  GlassJAw are the masters of making sweet, sweet music out of the most painful, cacophonic sounds and turning them into some seriously interesting music.  All through their career, GlassJAw’s production …

What’s Left Of Her “Perceptions”

What's Left Of Her - Perceptions

“Never judge a book by its cover”… or title, for that matter.  When I received What’s Left Of Her’s debut album Perceptions, I went into an immediate face palm – a band name like that raised all kinds of red flags.  Still, I soldiered on with the review, and I’m …
