Our first ever review. Reads like it too. In any case, the album can certainly boast a groove, but it lacks the edge of Pixies' best work.
The Chemical Brothers' second album is likely to please a number of electric tastes. It seldom rises above a good beat, but then it doesn't need to.
A magnificent journey, with tortured themes, fragile vocals, irresistibly groovy basslines, beautifully spacious production, and such a curious closer.
Trent Reznor set a benchmark in the industrial rock genre whilst simultaneously providing a form of therapy for millions of angst-filled listeners.
Weezer were unapologetically weird, yet strangely glamorous, which in itself brought a warming message; they showed us that it was cool to be uncool.
Melding orchestral and jazz samples with beats that surge tracks forward, Dummy remains intriguing for the listener throughout. An iconic album.
To brand this a landmark of the '90s is a disservice to its quality. OK Computer is as relevant now as ever, both culturally and sonically.
Illmatic has every element required that goes into making a great hip-hop record, with no gimmicks to intervene. It is, at its core, ten essential tracks.
The album is ice-cool summer groove music, with shimmering guitar stabs, slender double bass slides, and silky smooth vocal delivery aplenty.
The record is a rich and gloriously grubby collage of sounds. It stands somewhere between Pixies and Nirvana, with an added injection of psychedelic rock.
