    Default yarock's album reviews

    Instead of creating new thread or bumping old threads for each album, I'm gonna use this to "review" the albums I listened to. Now don't expect deep and comprehensive assays from me, I'm gonna rate each song one to five and add some notes if necessary. Feel free to contribute and share your ideas or your own reviews.


    Well, I'm starting with Simon Werner a disparu by Sonic Youth. It's the soundtrack of French film Simon Werner a disparu...

    All songs are instrumental.




    1. Thème de Jérémie 5/5
    2. Alice et Simon 4/5
    3. Les Anges au piano 4/5
    4. Chez Yves (Alice et Clara) 4/5
    5. Jean-Baptiste à la fenêtre 5/5
    6. Thème de Laetitia 3/5
    7. Escapades 3/5
    8. La Cabane au Zodiac 2/5
    9. Dans le bois / M. Rabier 3/5
    10. Jean-Baptiste et Laetitia - a 1:17 track
    11. Thème de Simon 4/5
    12. Au café 4/5

    I had great expectations for that Mogwai album, but it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be, so it was kind of disappointing. Not really my cup of tea.

    This thread could be interesting if you actually reviewed the albums. A picture of the album cover, followed by a x/5 rating for each song hardly provides any interest for the readers.

    You were right. This was more of a thread being created to get myself listen the albums that I want to listen. This isn't a problem anymore, but I don't want to left this thread like this.

    Still there weren't much albums that I gave ear this year, but I pretty much listened them all which might interest me. I nearly swallowed Kasabian's Velociraptor!, nowadays I'm trying to get into Kate Bush's new release.
