Re: MCCh 2014 (02) February 15

I think that, musically, it's tremendous; however, although I don't discuss it much, I did grow up in a religious environment and I do hold onto a lot of those principles (excluding those that some people use t...

Re: Albums of 2014

There is currently 9 albums with a score higher than an 8 on Any Decent Music's Top Rated New Albums chart....that's remarkable. I don't know if it's really been that great of a month, or if the critics are just going a bit bonkers.

Re: MCCh 2014 (02) February 15

Also, I have many close friends who are very involved with the underground metal scene who are raving over the Behemoth record. I want to listen to it now with an open mind to the fact that it just may not be a genre I understand much and try to pull out the appeal.

Re: Albums of 2014

I would say I might be equally floored by St. Vincent and Benji equally. They are both stunning. It seems 2014 is already putting out records at the same quality, if not better than the top releases of 2013.
