From Thomas Cohen To Anohni, It's A Great Week For Music! Check Out A Few Of This Weekend's Releases


Goo Goo Dolls

There's plenty of new musical releases this week to consume your weekend, and here are just a few that have dropped recently. Whether you're a rock lover of a fan of dance music, there's something to soundtrack your entire weekend here. Time to get downloading!

Thomas CohenThomas Cohen isn't all doom and gloom with 'Bloom Forever'

1. Thomas Cohen - Bloom Forever: He was formerly the frontman of S.C.U.M, but Thomas Cohen is sadly best known now as the bereaved widower of Peaches Geldof. The new album - his solo debut - reflects that loss, as well as the joy of marriage and new fatherhood that came before it, and so far critics are lapping it up. The Guardian thought the album 'surprisingly sunny', and the Evening Standard agreed that it is 'far from a wallow in grief'.

Goo Goo Dolls - Boxes Album Review


In the 30 years that they've been in the music industry, Goo Goo Dolls have sold over 12 million albums and are remarkably releasing their 11th studio collection, which is the follow-up to 2013's disappointing 'Magnetic'.  They remain a popular live draw, as evidenced by a tour schedule which sees them spending nearly three months playing North American dates.

Goo Goo Dolls - Boxes Album Review

After their tuneless last release, it is a relief that by the end of the first chorus of 'Over And Over' it is clear that the 'Dolls have regained their mojo.  With a guitar line that could be by The Edge, it is radio-friendly anthemic rock which has been successful for the outfit for some time.  Sydney Sierota lends a hand on the upbeat duet of 'Flood', while 'Reverse' and 'Long Way Home' are further evidence that the band are experts in their admittedly safe-feeling field.  As is standard on a Goo Good Dolls album, bassist Robby Takac takes vocals lead on a couple of tracks, and as usual, they are not the best on the record, but by his standards 'Free Of Me' is a decent effort.  

The stand out moments of this collection are 'So Alive', in which a subtle piano line combines well with the stomp of the rest of the track, and the title piece 'Boxes'.  Let's be clear, it won't surpass their magna opus 'Iris', but it is a great song which should come to be regarded as one of the best in their extensive catalogue.  It gradually builds into a sweeping juggernaut of a sing-a-long, comfortably their best moment of the last decade, and is the biggest indicator that the band are back to form.

Sunfest 2014 Logo

SunFest is back in Florida once again with another impressively diverse line-up and non-stop activity for five days. This year, the bill is headlined by Kid Rock, Ellie Goulding and Robin Thicke.

Probably the best sun-soaked family vacation you could ask for at such great value, SunFest arrives at West Palm Beach today (April 30th 2014) with a line-up that truly has something for everyone - if you'd pardon the cliché. Like any decent festival, filling in the spaces between bands is everything from the BB&T Juried Fine Art & Craft show to the Floating Oasis barge parties, not to mention the much anticipated fireworks display on Sunday. Having hosted its first event in 1982, it's no wonder it has remained such a family favourite, attracting over 165,000 revellers each year.

'American Idol' Judges Use Their Save - Tom Woolf Survives After 'Babylon' Performance


American Idol Randy Jackson Jennifer Lopez Chris Daughtry Goo Goo Dolls

There are no more second chances left for the remaining contestants on American Idol after the judges decided to use their save on Thursday night (3rd April). After strong performances on the previous show, it was certainly going to be an evening of drama and possible dissent amongst the judges.

Randy Jackson
Randy Jackson correctly predicted the five to gain the public's support and not enter the bottom three.

However, eight contestants are still remaining after the judges were unable to decide who should be eliminated when the bottom three - Malaya Watson, Sam Woolf and C.J. Harris - battled it out to remain in the competition.

With the band's upcoming album, 'Magnetic', due to be a more upbeat and joyful album than their previous 'Something For the Rest of Us', Rzeznik spoke to 'CNN' about the effects of his drinking, saying: "I quit drinking. And that lightened up my perspective on the world quite a bit... I think our last album was kind of a bummer. But the only way out is to go through, so that was going through. And now we're out on the other end."

Various Artists, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Soundtrack Album Review


It seems apt that for the latest instalment of a franchise based on metal objects hitting other metal objects that the soundtrack reads like a who's who of Alt-Rock/Metal acts. The third album for the Transformers series continues in the tradition of the first three with Linkin Park, Goo Goo Dolls, and Taking Back Sunday being just a few of the acts to feature time and again, it's just a shame that as the films have lost the plot the music has too.
