I Am Kloot

Let It All In, 2013

8.5 / 10

Truly happy yet honest albums are in short supply. If they’re happy they’re usually over-the-top and use cringe-worthy lyrics, but if the album’s songs are bathed in sadness then there’s ...

Demo, 2007

If you're even remotely serious about hardcore then you probably already received, or gave yourself, a history lesson about the genre. Depending on the school of thought you belong to ...

The Alternative (Reissue), 2008

6.5 / 10

Well, he still looks like a prick in the ruff but now he’s wearing a big stripey kipper tie as well. So it goes. There’s a not-so-subtle shift for IAMX ...

Ian Anderson

Thick as a Brick 2, 2012

9.0 / 10

If there's anything movies have taught us, it's that sequels almost always suck in comparison to the original. While there aren't nearly as many sequels in the musical world, occasionally ...
