Category Archives: Album Reviews
Our unbiased and comprehensive album reviews. We focus more on talking about an album for what it is. We highlight the good points, note the bad, and let you decide for yourself. However, if you really want to see our score look to our “quick hits” list on the right side of our main page and hover your icon over the album’s thumbnail. There, you will see our score based on 1-5. The higher, the better.

The Transport Aerian project have done it again with an album of fascinating and engrossing music that sounds unlike anything recorded by anyone else. Once more the project have thrown away the artificial constraints that bind music to a particular genre or style.
Yesterday’s digest of FF album reviews published by Sonic Cathedral featured six of the 11 albums Sonic Cathedral reviewed during June. Here are the other five. I hasten to add that our digest doesn’t present those albums in any order of preference. We’re listing them in their chronological sequence of publication on SC.
Thanks again for sharing your reviews with us, you fine folks at SC. To everyone who promotes, plays for or sings in a band with female vocals, Sonic Cathedral is a place you must visit.

Damn! Here’s another album to which I can award only 5 out of 5. Expect to see “The Mighty Few” elbowing other magnificent albums vigorously for my top ranking of 2015. At just 7 euros on Bandcamp, this masterpiece is an absolute steal. Get it now if you want to give your brain a dozen types of eargasms.
