Week In Retrospect - Sunday 4 October

Posted by PP on 04/10/09

Sunny summer is turning into cold, blazing rain and grey skies at least here in Denmark, which can directly be seen in the shitload of content we've put out for you guys this week. No less than 52 news items, 28 album reviews, 3 gig reviews (with 4 more awaiting in queue!), and 2 interviews were posted. Put all that text together and you'd have enough words for a lengthy university dissertation if not a full thesis! Average ratings were really high this week as well, but that's because this week featured a whole bunch of awesome albums by big bands we know can deliver: Check out reviews of Mew, Saosin, Strike Anywhere, Paramore, Revocation, The Used, Brand New and Moneen for starters, and then venture on to the reviews of bands with smaller profile as well - who knows what gems you might find such as the A Backward Glance... record! More awesomeness on its way during next week, keep checking back. Oh, and for older news, click onwards to our news archive.
