Sound Scope | #1 | Beyond the Clear Air - Midas | Music Review

A music review series i tried to start a couple of years ago. Got bored of it originally but might consider trying it again…

Muse - "The Resistance" (2009)

The Resistance marked a radical change in direction for Devon-based alternative rock band Muse. Their fifth album, it is also their most focused and coherent material, although with 2015’s “Drones” having a defined concept, it perhaps now takes second place in that respect (with 2012’s “The 2nd Law” being laughable in comparison). 451 more words

Another minor hit for ELO. This one was at its peak of UK#97 on this day in the 80s.

This is their third time on the blog, but this would be their last UK hit until 2006. 6 more words

The Doors - "The Soft Parade" (1969)

As soon as the first set of brass notes hit in opener “Tell All the People”, the band immediately communicate a change in sound and musical direction with their fourth studio album. 189 more words
