Our take on... Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Our take on... Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

March 15, 2019

“Harry Potter” has become such a huge part of popular culture that as soon as you hear those first few bars of the theme music for this film, there’s a real sense of familiarity about it. It really has an ability to transport the audience into the Wizarding World, where anything can happen and usually does...

When asked what my favourite album on vinyl is, I really struggle because there are so many albums/artists/bands I love, usually ones from the 70’s or 80’s, but, if I had to narrow it down to just one single album, and just on constant content of the album, I would probably say…..Fleetwood Mac – Tango in the Night...

Our take on... Bohemian Rhapsody

February 28, 2019

In the week where the Queen biopic won four Oscars, “Bohemian Rhapsody” arrives on DVD/Blu Ray with a ton of momentum behind it. The film was also a huge box office smash, despite the disarray that went on behind the scenes which you can probably read about elsewhere. But anyway, back to the film at hand...

I’ve been a fan of Picture This since their first single ‘Take My Hand’ was released, and after seeing them live at an intimate gig last year in The Academy in Dublin, I became totally obsessed! So naturally when I heard they were releasing a new album in 2019, I was super excited; every song they release they seem to outdo themselves, so I was keen to hear some new material...

Our take on... Venom

February 01, 2019

Originally created as a Spider-Man villain, the character of Venom was previously seen in “Spider-Man 3”, but you need to cast that from your memory banks as what we have here is a new interpretation of the character in its own standalone film...

Our take on... Black '47

January 10, 2019

While Irish cinema has come on in leaps and bounds in the last number of years, it’s now reaching a stage where more ambitious projects are getting made. Whether it’s due to people clamouring for something different paired with advances in technology, Irish films are starting to make their mark on the world stage more and more. “Black ‘47” is one such film...

Our take on... Gavin James: Only Ticket Home

November 20, 2018

After the success of his debut record “Bitter Pill” and the massive single off the back of that album “Nervous”, Dublin native Gavin James returns with a new record that, musically at least, sounds like it was inspired by his touring stints with Ed Sheeran and Kodaline...

Our take on... Jess Glynne: Always in Between

October 25, 2018

The album kicks off with a short intro featuring Glynne and what sounds to be a gospel choir of backing musicians before “No One” kicks in, followed by “I’ll Be There”. These two tracks perfectly encapsulate what Glynne’s sound is, which is a mix of soul and modern dance and while some artists might struggle to mix the two genres, Glynne makes is seem pretty effortless thanks in part to her unique vocal style which floats between pitch perfect clean vocals to a vibrato she throws in from time to time...

Our take on... Twenty One Pilots: Trench.

October 08, 2018

For a band who seemed to appear out of nowhere in 2015 with the hit single “Stressed Out”, Twenty One Pilots (in their current line-up of Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph) have been on the go since 2011 and “Trench” represents their third record for label Fueled By Ramen following “Blurryface” in 2015...
