Week In Retrospect - Sunday 27. December

Posted by TL on 28/12/09

Okay this is officially getting ridiculous. I just spent I-don't-know-how-long, reading through the reviews posted over the week of Christmas, all thirty-fuckin-two of them and knowing that I personally will have to commence my own sprint tonight, finishing as many promos as I can before the new year is upon us, it seems that the tide won't be stemmed for a while yet. Maybe if the lives of the Rockfreaks.net writers had anything resemblant of structure, we'd be able to pace ourselves better, but since that isn't the case, you're just going to have to tag along at out speed, or just desperately try to check up when you can. Better that than to miss out on anything, right? Anyway, remember to check out, at the very least our album of the week, this time by British upstarts Bury Tomorrow, and also keep in mind that you can regain your overview of the news, by heading to the news archive.
