It has been two years since Rascal Flatts released their last album, “Changed.” While I have been a big fan since the start of their career, and I enjoyed “Changed,” it underperformed more than any of their previous efforts. Fortunately... (more »)

Queen Of The Damned OST by Selected artists

Though I have seen the movie, I honestly would say the soundtrack is better. The soundtrack consists of 14 tracks, yet not even half were in the movie. But lets a go. 1 Not Meant For me by Wayne Static of Static-x: this is the first song on... (more »)

I can't believe no one has talked about this yet, and why not, this an amazing album. Sure it only has six tracks, but most of them are longer than ten minutes so it's over an hour long. The track list is pretty freaking amazing to just... (more »)

Rented World by The Menzingers This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

From the first driving chords of “I Don’t Wanna Be An A**hole Anymore”, until the last tear jerking notes of “When You Died”, The Menzingers created a phenomenally emotional and relatable record. "Rented World" is a release... (more »)

Red Album by Taylor Swift

Over the course of the previous year I have avoided the pop genre of music completely. Mostly because I feel the genre has become corrupt. Personally, I feel that pop music has gone from thought provoking songs to plain noise. It wasn’t... (more »)
