BLOG: MUSIC “REVIEWS”
I decided to give writing reviews (and a view “artist impressions|) a try in February 2022, a new “addition” to Roel’s World … Now, obviously I am not a famous musician, composer, writer / critic or what ever. Roel’s World was and should always stay FUN for me. The moment Roel’s World is no longer a hobby but an obligation I would simply stop with it.
I will not blog about famous bands and musicians, simply because there will be many others who will. I am digging around online for “somethin’ else”, trying to find those “hidden gems”.
When I listen to the releases I review I am using the Monolith M1070 Planar headphones, thus room acoustics (where ever I listen) are not of influence. Click on the images to enlarge.
ARTIST “IMPRESSIONS” (MY “ICONS”)
“What I love about’s” … reviews about my personal “heros” and most admired. Musicians / bands / composers / producers who’s music have been fundamental to my own development as listener, musician and composer/producer:
Reviews of releases (albums, EPs, singles), sometimes by request. Most will be newly or upcoming releases, but from time to time I might write about an album from my extensive collection that I truly love (and think deserves a spotlight). Always looking for those “hidden gems” …
