Week In Retrospect - Sunday 18. April

Posted by EW on 19/04/10

Wow, what a week! A mega-ass volcano in Iceland doing it's bit to lower it's countries already gutter-level reputation in Europe and bringing the continent to a halt, the sad news of Type O Negative's Peter Steele's passing, the true arrival of spring (in Britain at least), and looking at the list below, a sensational collection of releases for you to read about. Is that four new 9/10's and one old classic I spy? Why yes it is, in amongst 27 record and 3 live reviews.
