Music Reviews

For those of us in our late 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, the act of hearing a great song on the radio then running to the music store in the mall or stand-alone brick and mortar shop to buy the entire album was a magical experience!

Jave, being a 20+ year radio station operator and Andy, being a musician and lover of great music bring you music reviews. Check this page for a wide variety of music reviews. We’re game to review everything from jazz and pop to rock and soul here! Got a suggestion? Hit us up with an email and we’ll put you on the list for a review!

Perhaps here in 2017, even with the advent of singles-based music streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and the like, we can help bring back the magic of listening to an entire album to hear how one song flows into the next, and bring back the ‘fandom’ of finding your favorite artists!

Thrice may be a band new to your radar, or perhaps you’ve never heard of these guys! Believe it or not, Thrice started as a ‘post-hardcore’ band out of Orange County, California and their early sound is reminicent of Bad Religion, Pennywise and Green Day.
