Week In Retrospect - Sunday 13. December

Posted by EW on 14/12/09

Well this past week has had it's usual share of ups and downs, from TL's extremely high rating of the new 30 Seconds To Mars record to PP's not-so-high assessment of local lads' Haltefanden little EP and lots in between, across as diverse a portfolio of genres as you are likely to find anywhere. Mix that in with a few live reviews and you surely have right there a winning combination for anyone who dares call themselves a 'rock' fan here at the tail-end of the 21st Century's first decade. Of course there has been plenty of news too during the week, all of which can be found in the news archive.
