2014 Album Micro-Reviews

Gonna try something new this year. I’m not that great at writing album reviews, so I’ll just keep them super short! These aren’t all the albums I listened to this year, but ones that stood out to me, or ones from artists I follow closely. In no particular order: Triosphere – The Heart Of The Matter: Polished, diverse, catched, powerful; one of my favorites this year. They have found their stride and are a force to be reckoned with. Amaranthe – Massive Addictive: More diverse songs, doesn’t feel as derivative as The Nexus did. Still is catchy and has that...

Artist: Within Temptation Support: Amaranthe Date: September 25th, 2014 Location: San Francisco Venue: Regency Grand Ballroom Tour: Hydra World Tour This concert has been a long time coming. Within Temptation show how much they have grown as a band since their last US tour almost exactly 7 years ago. Their popularity has grown quite significantly. Last time they were in San Francisco, they filled Slim’s; this time around they filled the Regency Grandball room, on the floor and upstairs. That’s quite a feat! I don’t think I’ve seen that venue that packed before (seated shows excluded). Production-wise, they’re known for...

Within Temptation – And We Run (Live In San Francisco)

Within Temptation performing “And We Run” live on the first stop of their North American Hydra tour! Recorded on September 25th, 2014 at the Regency Grand Ballroom in San Francisco, CA. Apparently Sharon called up “Mr. Xzibit” the day before to see what he was up to. Coincidently he was over in Holland in their turf while Within Temptation was over here, to which Sharon said, “Man, what is up with that?”
