Wrap your ever-lovin' heads around this here scenario.

A cold night, October 2005. (Man, that feels like forever ago.) This was a much different San Chonino – I still wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with my life, hadn't discovered the beauty that is Spanish literature (a love that would eventually dictate my current plans for the rest of my life). It was my first semester back at school after a two-and-a-half year break. Two years to serve as a missionary for my church (The Church...

As far as alternative rock bands go, Radiohead is one that has always been willing to push its limits. Listening to their first CD and comparing it to their latest is almost comical; they sound nothing alike – the only uniting factor is the odd voice of Thom Yorke.

This album is one that I've been meaning to review for ages. It will be good to write this much-needed review.

I received this CD from my parents at the age of fifteen as a congratulations for performing well in a big, nasty piano recital. It was one of the first albums that I owned that wasn't by Rush, my all-time favorite band, and (to be brutally honest) my first album with a “nasty cuss” in it. I had hea...

My experience with the group Rachel's has been an interesting one. I heard of them for the first time as I was sitting in my buddy's basement, looking through a copy of his university's newspaper. I read a review for this album, and my interest was piqued by what the author had said – that this album was a combination of such odd things that it somehow worked.

So we logged on to and looked up the disc, liste...
