Richard Ashcroft review

Richard Ashcroft is a hell of a songwriter and undeniably still one of the best frontmen in Britain; cracking voice, brilliant lyrics, colossal tunes, northern swagger and of course, as always, the right shades. 

Chelsea Wolfe Live Review

Chelsea Wolfe takes the audience through a bleak view of the world adorned by barricades of drone, doom metal and industrial bliss…

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Review 2017

The return of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s raw and gloomy sound reinforced by layers of unhinged distortion.

Madness Review

Madness’ mass of ska, pop sensibility and R&B soundscapes combined with the habitual extravaganza of humour and eccentricity.

The Smiths' Final Gig - 12th December 1986, Brixton Academy, London

Sleaford Mods, Manchester REVIEW

Sleaford Mods are the last act that truly challenges the English status quo and the humdrum ordinariness. Uncompromising, violent and vigorous.

Four roaring bass guitars and a singing drummer. Visually shocking and sonically disturbing…

★★★★★ Glastonbury is a 5-day fantasy of excess and artistic diversity. The options seem to be limitless…

★★★★★ The Stone Roses in their hometown is an event like no other.

★★★☆☆ A battle between creative limitations and technical craftmanship

Broken Hands review // thesenseofdoubt.com

★★★☆☆ Broken Hands’ battle between a psychedelic perplexing noise and the simplicity of a straightforward rockier sound

Richard-Hawley review // thesenseofdoubt.com

★★★★☆ Richard Hawley’s elegant Orbison-esque soulful balladries are alternated with moments of full-blown psychedelia

Ian McCulloch Review // thesenseofdoubt.com

★★★★☆ The naked scenario suits him well and enhances Ian McCulloch´s undeniable talent to create irresistible verses and intelligent but sticky choruses.

★★★★☆ Drumfires, fuzz, growls, more distortion and fast vocals with a fuck-the-verse/chorus-structure that hits your skull over and over…

★★★★☆ Lights and vibrations that make us perceive noise in fuzzy quadrants. Luminous sketches and strobes in tones of reds and whites. Fugacious demonstrations of noise that drill your skull until you give up and enter into an hypnotic mood.

★★★★★ Pop music discovering its most visceral and confrontational side in 2-3 minute odes of nihilism inspired by daily boredom and post teenage anger.

★★★★☆ Thurston Moore is one of those musicians who treat a guitar like an appliance of primitive and unconventional noise.
