I just can't look - it's killing me!

Advantages: Catchy fun indie rock pop
Disadvantages: Maybe a few songs too many

I bought this Greatest Hits album of The Killers in Sainsbury's this afternoon for just £3. I had my usual £5 voucher as a result of having car insurance with them, so got this and Paul Blart - Mall Cop for a combined £1. It seemed like a good deal, as al ...

A Great Compilation Album

Advantages: Variety of song styles.
Disadvantages: None.

I wasn't really into this band until recently so instead of going back through all of their studio albums to discover their music I bought this 'best of' compilation. It's available quite cheaply and I only paid £3 for the physical CD on Amazon. I feel th ...

Fickle fascination of everlasting Gods

Advantages: A round up of some of the Pumpkins' best songs from the last 12 years
Disadvantages: The final Pumpkins' release :(

How many times do pick up a magazine and see the words, 'If you buy one album this year, buy this one'? For me, this is that album. 'Rotten Apples' tells the tale of one of the only truly original bands in recent music and listening to it, in some points, ...
