Week In Retrospect - Sunday 20. December

Posted by TL on 21/12/09

Boom baby, 25 album reviews this past week, in your face, and if you think that's something, just wait for this Christmas week, where our writers, all pretty much free of whichever educational engagements have kept them occupied during December, will all scramble to wrap up as much as humanly possible before New Years Eve is upon us. It was a great week for rock, as Britain raged against the machine, making "Killing In The Name Of" the Christmas number one but that is of course not all that happened, and if you were somehow prevented from checking Rockfreaks.net every 5 minutes, remember that you can always catch up in our news archive.
