KFAI - Undead
Rabbit Holes - Rabbit Holes EP album cover

Rabbit Holes

Rabbit Holes EP, 2014

7.4 / 10

Big Action Records doesn’t pump out a ton of releases and, when they do, they run the geographical gamut. The label is based in St. Paul, MN but releases come ...

Rabid Rabbit - Rabid Rabbit album cover

Rabid Rabbit

Rabid Rabbit, 2009

6.0 / 10

As certain styles of music catch hold and thus become revered and oft emulated, making or doing something to makes one’s band stand out amidst an ever burgeoning horde of ...

Racebannon - Acid or Blood album cover


Acid or Blood, 2008

7.0 / 10

My first thought when I look at Racebannon's Myspace profile is that their vocalist, Mike Anderson, has a bit of the curly-haired Ween look to him. That thought is quickly ...

Radical Attack - Priority album cover

Radical Attack

Priority, 2006

7.8 / 10

There are a lot of hardcore bands out there who claim to be old-school, but the truth of the matter is that an insane amount of metal has infiltrated the ...

Radical Fun Time

There Is Only One Race The HUMAN RACE EP, 2018

What’s in a name? Radical Fun Time. Well, it is radical. Just take a look at that artwork. Someone had fun with that! It hurts a bit on the eyes, ...

Radio 4 - Enemies Like This album cover

Radio 4

Enemies Like This, 2006

4.0 / 10

When Radio 4 released Gotham, it instantly became one of my favorite albums of all time. It was packed full of great songs that were great to dance to and ...

Radio War - The Rising of the Talentless album cover

Radio War

The Rising of the Talentless, 2008

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Richmond has always had an impressive hardcore scene, so it’s no surprise to hear good things from the city in Radio War. The Rising of the Talentless is the band’s ...

Radioactivity - Radioactivity album cover


Radioactivity, 2013

8.8 / 10

Each time I write the phrase “garage-punk” I like it less and less. Still, how else to describe a band that blends pop-punk and garage so well? Actually, in recent ...

Radioactivity - Silent Kill album cover


Silent Kill, 2015

8.8 / 10

These guys know how to start off a record, with the rapid fire “Battered” pummeling with riffage for the first minute and then Jeff Burke’s familiar vocals chime in and ...

Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool album cover


A Moon Shaped Pool, 2016

8.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

A Radiohead album release has become akin to finding folding money under a seat cushion. It doesn't happen often and when it does, it's usually a surprise.Such was the release ...

Radiohead - Hail to the Thief album cover


Hail to the Thief, 2003

9.0 / 10
Multiple Authors

Thom Yorke had billed this record as OK Computer 2, and Radiohead's cookie doesn't crumble all that different from the motion picture industry, the sequel doesn't live up to the ...

Radiohead - Hail to the Thief album cover


Hail to the Thief, 2003

6.4 / 10
Multiple Authors

Radiohead are one of those bands that people go out of their way to like because there's quite a bit to like about them. Some would even certify Radiohead as ...

Radiohead - In Rainbows album cover


In Rainbows, 2007

9.6 / 10

What Radiohead have done with the release of In Rainbows will be talked about for years to come. At best, and only time will tell, it will be looked at ...

Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt. II album cover


Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt. II, 2009

8.6 / 10

For whatever reason, it took me a little while to warm up to hip-hop. Maybe I was too into that guitar and percussion sound to really give hip-hop a fair ...

Raging Nathans - Cheap Fame album cover

Raging Nathans

Cheap Fame, 2018

8.0 / 10

This what pop-punk used to mean. On the record it’s clean and melodic, while the live show feels more aggressive and forceful. Think of those Ramones studio records and compare ...

Raging Nathans - Oppositional Defiance album cover

Raging Nathans

Oppositional Defiance, 2020

8.0 / 10

Boy do The Raging Nathans know how to start a record on a down note. The band plays melodic DIY pop-punk that’s of the verse-chorus-verse variety with driving rhythm to ...

Ragnarok - Malediction album cover


Malediction, 2012

7.5 / 10

Norway's Ragnarok have made their name playing traditional Black Metal for nearly 2 decades now. On this, their 7th, full length they remain steadfast in style and attitude. Much can ...

Rainer Maria - Catastrophe Keeps Us Together album cover

Rainer Maria

Catastrophe Keeps Us Together, 2006

7.5 / 10

Finally. This record has taken forever to actually see the light of day. Rainer Maria is normally consistent (at least that is the way it seemed) with their time between ...
