    BOOK REVIEW: The 100 by Kass Morgan

    BOOK REVIEW: The 100 by Kass Morgan Little, Brown Books September 2013, $16.99 Reviewed by Steph O’Connell 4/10   The premise had so much potential. I was picturing a cross between Earth 2 and Lord of the Flies. This book is so not that. Not even close. Basically, about three-hundred years before the novel starts, people evacuated […]

    Shane’s Rock Challenge: RAINBOW – 1979 – Down To Earth By Shane Pinnegar 7/10 Notoriously difficult to work with, Ritchie Blackmore had made three albums under the Rainbow banner with Ronnie James Dio centre stage and an ever-changing assembly of musos by the time Dio and he fell out for the final time. Blackmore wasted […]

    Shane’s Rock Challenge: KROKUS – 1984 – The Blitz Reviewed by Shane Pinnegar 6/10 I have to be honest: The Blitz was a disappointment. Having made a couple of fun, but very AC/DC derivative albums, Krokus released Headhunter in 1983 (I’ll review it soon – I promise!), which was a Euro metal classic. As was […]

    Shane’s Rock Challenge: OTIS REDDING – 1987 – The Definitive Collection By Shane Pinnegar 9/10 Otis practically lived and breathed Soul. If he had a cold, I bet he sneezed with soul.
