Chester looks like Freddy Krueger dressed up for a meeting with the judge on his pre trial for murder, “It wasn’t me , your honor” and the Judge would take one luck at Chester and this is going to trial poste haste. Guilty of lousy rock and roll albums in the 1st degree, murdering both rock and rap.
I had no idea thatIncubus guitarist Michael Einziger was really into science. He was a student at Harvard University in 2008-2011, has studied history and philosophy of physics and he has even contributed to an article on the topic of human evolution. But he has especially a profound interest in physical sciences
I love it when my taste and the zeitgeists taste coincide. It doesn’t happen nearly as much as I wish it did, at least because I am such a pop whote, sales always pricks up my ears. It killed me hating Frozen for months on end. But I love the top two on this list, written about them lots, and seeing them here at the top of the charts is just heaven!

Mutineers – David Gray – Joined by the bloke from Lamb (a great band in their own right) , this is a beautiful, slightly muted collection of singer songwriter songs like Elbow without the quirk and also without the anthem. Another great album by Gray that should buy him a larger than cult audience but probably won’t – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-
I’ve Seen It All – Bjork – Off her Lar Von Trier movie, this is a spectacular nursery rhyme set to the chugachug of a train with smart aphorisms like “All walls are great if the roof doesn’t fall” while enhancing the strange sad “pennies from heaven” storyline – A
