A little snowed under here at headquarters. Three more assignments to do before the 3oth of January but rest assured I shall return to regular posting once I get them over and done with.
The next update will feature in depth reviews of:
Coldplay - Live at The Odyssey Arena, Belfast - December 23, 2008
Dir en grey - Live at Mandela Hall, Belfast (Kerrang! Relentless Tour) - January 13th, 2009
plus single reviews for Buck-Tick, Gackt, and more!
Over and out.
P.S- I never thought I would get this close to one of my idols... :)
Thursday, 8 January 2009
I had considered posting a countdown list for my favourite singles, albums and concerts of 2008 but I don't want to anymore. Coldplay, Sigur Ros, MGMT, Dir en grey, Death Cab For Cutie... it was a good year for music. I saw a lot of amazing gigs: Radiohead, Coldplay (Review coming soon), Oxegen (Review not coming lol). I discovered many bands that I hadn't listened to before and broadened my horizons musically by venturing into pop music for a bit. Rock, metal and visual kei will always be my loves but I think the best thing to do in 2009 is to continue what I started in 2008: listening to wider ranges of music. I enjoyed it and actually learned from it. I hope you will too, good reader.
Happy New Year.
P.S- I would like to thank a few friends for their help and support: Micheál, Bronagh, Gemma, Joe, Raul EV, Catherine, Laura, Michelle & Cully. Without you, I'm nothing.
