Christina Aguilera – Lotus

3.5/5 Lotus has successfully re-tracked a pop career gone off course. The album plays like a collection of singles primed and ready for release (with a couple exceptions). The album finds Aguilera showing us a lot of vocal acrobatics, setting herself apart once again from the current day mold of pop. Aguilera is big voiced, theatrical, sexy, experimental and lets you see her vulnerability and sadness. She's ...

Hunter Valentine- Collide and Conquer

4/5 I have to say when I heard Hunter Valentine had a new album out; it made me reminisce when I bought my copy of Impatient Romantic. With seeing them now even before listening to the new album you can tell that they have really changed from their appearance in 2007. The result is a great sounding eleven track record. With a bit of a rough edgy sound, it's a very polished hard rock album. I found myself ta ...

The Flowers of Hell – Odes

4/5 As soon as The Flowers of Hell come off the stage the platform will seems undersized; the number of musicians alone would even fill out the stage. 16 in number. Sixteen musicians who have targeted themselves to a trans-Atlantic (Toronto/London) space rock orchestra. They combined symphonic orchestra with rock instrumentation and create a entitled by The Times “classical music for shoegazers”. On their f ...
