Let The People Speak Compilation album 2010

12 Dec 2010 // A review by terry666

Let the people speak Compilation album 2010

Let the people speak is a compilation of Kiwi artists from all different genres.

The album opens with a track from indie rockers Artisan Guns with the rockier of their two featured songs there slower side being shown later with the track 'Autumn'.

Midnight Youth have two tracks on here 'Just For Once' and 'All On Our Own' and what great tracks they are. Iím a big fan of these guys and canít wait for a new release from them.

Steriogram feature on here with two tracks the classic 'Walkie Talkie Man' and the new track 'Moving On' and each showcases the bands wit and style. I really love 'Moving On' and canít wait to see these guys when they play down here over summer they give us another reason to love kiwi rock.

For the Pop Rock fans Dane Rumble has the songs 'Everything' and 'Cruel'. Personally I much prefer 'Everything' but 'Cruel' still has a great summer pop flavour. Heís come a long way since Fast Crew with a far more mature sound and production.

Girl rockers Ivy Lies have 'Addicted' on here and the softer number 'I Lie Awake' very much sounding like something Avril Lavigne would write.

Jonny Loveís track 'Not The First (Not The Last)' is the second of his two tracks showing his mellow side while his first track on here is a little more rockier track called 'Weight of Tomorrow'.

I love 'Problematic' from Pistol Youth it reminds me very much of the Australian band Thirsty Merc I was disappointed there was only one track from these guys.

Soljah add a completely different sound to this compilation by being a reggae band and definitely have plenty of Funk and Soul. Thanks to bands like Kora and Katchafire the eyes are being for more Kiwis to local reggae bands.

Nathan Haines brings his Jazz and Soul flavours to the track 'Pathway' showcasing this manís immense talent.  After seven albums and many other collaborations this track shows why he is one of our hidden treasures. 'Pathway' almost sounds like a Simply Red track very smooth sounding.

Autozammís 'Breathe' is the rockier of their two tracks before their other track 'Closer' to home both which have featured quite well on the kiwi charts.

Lisa Crawley has two very soulful songs on here both very mellow but quite catchy.

Kirsten Morrellís who was last seen in the band Goldenhorse has a song 'Maybe Tomorrow' on here and shows some of why Goldenhorse were so popular.

This compilation is mainly Pop rock orientated but shows some of our other sides to our kiwi flavour. It would be a great summer beach and bbq album catering for most tastes and having an upbeat feel to it. Some awesome Kiwi talents here makes you realise you need to go back to the record store for more tracks from these bands. Samplers are such a tease and such a pleasure.

Festival Review: Homegrown @ Wellington Waterfront - 7 & 8 March 2015
23 Mar 2015 // by terry666
Around the start of November I look forward to the announcement of my favourite summer festival of all that is great about New Zealand music. I start off by looking to see what Rock acts are playing and then look to see if my favourite non rock band Kora is playing.
Thy Assassin - Album Review: A World Left Behind
25 Feb 2015 // by terry666
Melodic death core is how this band describes their music and they do a damn fine job at it. Coming from Hamilton these guys are fairly new on the scene but with production and content that is at the level of bands many years ahead of them.
The Symphony of Screams - Album Review: Live & Unplugged
22 Jan 2015 // by terry666
The Symphony of Screams has been around for a fair while now and the first time I personally came across them was at Rock to Wellington back in 2008. That was a huge show with a line-up that put them in front of a plethora of metal and hard rock stars that would have been any 80ís teenagerís wet dream.
Malevolence - Relentless Entropy Album Review

New Zealand metal is continually getting more and more recognition and more and more respect nationally and internationally because of the quality of the product we are producing. We have a long history with a growing number of bands bringing out material on regular basis.

Big Day Out 2014 Review
31 Jan 2014 // by terry666
Big Day Out 2014 @ Western Springs, Auckland - 17/01/2014 It was with some trepidation I headed to Western Springs to check out the new venue for the Big Day Out 2014. I have been to about 6 previous Big Day Out's and Western Springs is a quite a different venue than Mt Smart.
