10 – Nick Drake – Pink Moon (1972)

1 – Kyuss – Welcome To Sky Valley (1994)

This is the sound of a jeep roaring across desert plains. The sound of friends sat by a campfire, watching the sun rise & set with a few beers losing track of time. Another milestone in the stoner rock scene, … Continue reading

2 – Tool – Lateralus (2001)

I’m actually completely intimidated about reviewing this album. I’m wondering if I can actually justify how good this is just using words. That sounds completely melodramatic, but sometimes the best way is to just let someone experience something for themselves … Continue reading

3 – Meshuggah – Destroy Erase Improve (1995)

I will open this review by saying this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. This album is loud, obnoxious and repetitive. It also lacks melody, is almost emotionless (except maybe anger) and cold. So, what’s it got going for it … Continue reading

6 – Crowbar – Odd Fellows Rest (1998)

I’ll never forget the moment I first heard this album towards the end of last year. This was a band I’d never heard before. I knew they played sludge, but that really didn’t do this band justice. See, despite me … Continue reading

7 – Sleep – Holy Mountain (1993)

Three massive Black Sabbath fans smoke lots of weed and start jamming on their instruments. This happens. An absolute milestone in the stoner rock/metal scene, there’s not a lot I can say what hasn’t already been said about this album. … Continue reading
