EP Review: Tech N9ne - "Therapy"

Sometimes you are introduced to music through unusual means. The name Tech N9ne first popped into the popular lexicon when he had the grows-on-you single “The Beast” placed on the soundtrack of Madden 06 (the one that debuted the horrible QB vision, but that’s beside the point.) The cut was impressive enough and reached enough eardrums that suddenly the name Tech N9ne was worth knowing. The Kansas City-based rapper kept up a relentless grind, working wonders in the independent rap scene following the release of concurrent hit single “Caribou Lou.”

Album Review: Hollywood Undead - "Notes From the Underground"

Following the technically curious remix experiment that was “American Tradgedy Redux,” I resolved to give Hollywood Undead another shot. My logic was that if other musicians could do interesting things with the core music, then perhaps either A) there’s something there I’ve missed, or B) the band could learn and evolve from studying what others have done with their product. So I dove in, clear eyes, full heart, can’t lose as they say in Dillon, Texas.

Album Review: Limp Bizkit - "Gold Cobra"

As a reviewer and music journalist, sometimes the toughest task is to remain impartial and objective about a new project that slides across your desk. I’ve run into this conundrum a handful of times, where I thought I already knew that a band would be great or reprehensible; it’s hard to stifle your natural inclination and judge something on its own merits.
