The Menzingers – After The Party (, )
23rd February 2017 -

After The Party is a very nostalgic album. From the opening moments of 20’s (Tellin’ Lies) it’s very clear The Menzingers are very keen on looking back on their past very fondly. This album is practically a love letter to the bands 20’s as they constantly reminisce about good times. Everything The Menzingers sing about on this album feels almost… Read More »

Bridging the 5-year gap since ‘Few Against Many’, ‘Immortals’ is a brave yet expertly executed first venture into the conceptual realm. It’s no secret Gus G is a godlike axeman and Henning Basse wields rather… Read More »

Bowling for Soup – Drunk Dynasty Review ()
9th February 2017 -

Bowling For Soup are now on their 11th studio album, after over twenty years as a band. After glossing over their temporary UK “retirement” the band are back doing what they do best: ignorant, hilarious pop punk with big choruses. Indeed, Drunk Dynasty, as the name suggests, does not reinvent the Bowling for Soup wheel. However, that wheel is one… Read More »
