  • Maroon 5 - V (Deluxe Version) [US Version] (Mastered for iTunes)

    Maroon 5 have always struggled with their image. Frontman Adam Levine's boyish good looks meant that early on in their career they were routinely mistaken for a boyband, despite having the traditional rock band setup. "People didn't know what to make of us," he admitted in a recent interview, but it didn't stop their debut album Songs About Jane launching them to chart success and initially pinpointing them as soft-rock funk-masters. Five albums in and Maroon 5's identity crisis is a whole different beast. Aptly named V (oh, the originality!), we'd like to think the sextet's new title is a knowing V-sign to the decade of growing stigma they continue to endure. Let's face it, it hasn't stopped them selling near on 20 million records. Mega hit 'Moves Like Jagger' helped them some way to that number, and much like 2012's Overexposed, new album V feels like a formula to further that appeal...

  • Natives - Indoor War (iTunes Version)

    Hampshire quintet Natives have finally unleashed their debut album Indoor War after teasing fans with it’s releasing due to delay after delay about when it could finally be expected. Revealing that the release was to tell the story of a character called Alvima who having faced a loss is left to deal with the decisions he is left to make. Interesting? We thought so! But would it be worth the long wait? Opening track War Inside Of Me takes us the first steps on Alvima’s journey setting the scene with a delicate sounding track with a strong musical backline supported by Jim Thomas’ vocals gliding neatly above. Before taking a drastic turn into an anthem sing-a-long “isn’t it obvious?” which sticks within your brain due to their possessive hook lines. Having already given fans taster of the album...

  • Jeezy - Seen It All: The Autobiography (Deluxe) (iTunes Version)

    A word like "under-rated" gets throw around so often now it doesn't mean much. Can you really be underrated when fifty sites have done a "100 Under-Rated Rappers" listicle, and the same rappers are on every one? What rating are we even referring to? Whose rating? Is any rapper ever just properly rated?* But....Young "Don't Call Me Young" Jeezy might just be one of the most under-rated rappers still moving, and I know because I under-rated him for years. My first introduction to Jeezy was when I first started reading news reports that schools across America were banning Snowman t-shirts. (Surprise suburban America, snow is a metaphor for cocaine.) Of course, those news reports immediately made me go listen to Jeezy's recently released Thug Motivation 101 album which because I was still firmly entrenched in my lyrical east-coast rap over everything phase...
