Songs of Innocence

Album Reviews | U2 – Songs of Innocence (2014)

by Eric Mackon October 23, 2014
U2's latest is a decent offering, but ultimately the material just isn't strong enough to recommend giving it more than just a cursory listen.

Album Reviews | Soundgarden – Superunknown (2014) [20th Anniversary Super Deluxe]

by Eric Mackon October 16, 2014
The most elaborate reissue of Soundgarden's greatest album is something of a disappointment. Despite an abundance of tracks, standouts are few and far between, and overall the release is just decent in quality.
Ghost Stories

Album Reviews | Coldplay – Ghost Stories (2014)

by Eric Mackon October 15, 2014
Boasting insanely high production values that can only be found on big-budget albums, Ghost Stories is a highly enjoyable offering from Coldplay that demonstrates why the band has such broad appeal.

Saving Private Ryan Title Card

Favorite Movies | Saving Private Ryan (1998)

“This time the mission is a man.” – Sgt. Horvath Joseph Stalin once brilliantly pointed out, “A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.” This fully sums up both the madness of war when it is executed on a mass scale and, perhaps more tellingly, how it is so continually rationalized in the civilized […]

Gladiator Title Card

Favorite Movies | Gladiator (2000)

by Eric Mackon September 21, 2014
“Rome is to become a Republic again.” — Marcus Aurelius Many, many things in Gladiator are simply not accurate. The character Maximus is a necessary fiction; having characters make patently false statements like “Rome was founded as a Republic” is something of a head scratcher. Curiously, the Wikipedia article on Gladiator makes no mention of this […]

In Rotation | Massive Attack – Blue Lines (1991)

by Eric Mackon September 19, 2014
When I was counting down my list of favorite albums in late 2011 and early 2012, I still hadn’t really heard much electronic music, and the only trip-hop I was familiar with was the Sneaker Pimps’ song “6 Underground” and DJ Shadow’s amazing album Endtroducing…, which I have since profiled in an In Rotation entry. I […]
