REVIEW: Vanna – And They Came Baring Bones

I’m honestly a bit unnerved by saying this, at the risk of being heckled and berated by angry Bostonians, but And They Came Baring Bones is, by a substantial margin, Vanna’s best offering to date, in any of their various line ups. And once fans hear this album, I doubt anybody will argue with that statement. Albums like The Search Party Never Came and even A New Hope had their iconic songs, but they didn’t feel nearly as complete or dynamically interesting as And They Came Baring Bones, they were lacking a bit of solidarity that is very much present in their new album.

REVIEW: Earth Crisis – Neutralize The Threat

Neutralize The Threat is not an album I’d recommend to someone looking for something surprising, but would certainly recommend to someone who likes pretty much any hardcore/metalcore records. Even though it’s not really all that groundbreaking or special, Neutralize The Threat is pretty well executed, and certainly hits hard from start to finish. I guess sometimes you just need music to mosh to.”

MOVIE REVIEW: Super 8

“f I could give one piece of advice to film makers it would be this, Stay away from aliens. Go to a theatre and watch the previews before any feature film. 90% of the trailers contain alien or robotic bull crap that I honestly don’t want to see any more. Give me a good movie that I can think about. Something that will make me think about how the movie could end, and then throw me backwards with a twist.”
