Album Reviews - Read all the latest reviews from our team of experienced writers. Reviews of albums from bands, singers and artists around the world from Louder Than War. Our in-depth reviews often come with a ranking in the form of the number of bombs awarded from 1 to 5, 5 being the top vote the writer can give.
If you would like to have your album reviewed by one of our writers then please contact them directly. It makes sense to target the writer on the basis of their personal taste. There is no point targeting a writer for a post-punk album review if they are clearly into heavy metal or drone! Target the writer first and try and get them interested in your album.
We often produce our top albums, either of the or maybe the first six months of the year. This is a writers and editors choice and cannot be influenced.
On Ultra Mono, IDLES confound and draw lines in the sand. They provide an urgent rush of ideas, energy and action and bring a sensitivity to the bludgeon and the noise. They bring an intelligence and a meaning to the music and they somehow manage to cram their wild intelligence into short sharp shocks of sound that is honed to perfection on the new album.
