A New Study Reveals That Musical Preferences Are Linked To Cognitive Styles

By Alyson Camus | July 26, 2015

‘Although people’s music choices fluctuates over time, we’ve discovered a person’s empathy levels and thinking style predicts what kind of music they like…. In fact, their cognitive style – whether they’re strong on empathy or strong on systems – can be a better predictor of what music they like than their personality.’

With Glastallica, Metallica Try To Mock Protesters And Fail

By Alyson Camus | July 2, 2014

Metallica’s headlining at Glastonbury received a lot of criticism, especially because James Hetfield is the narrator of a new TV series about bear hunting on the History Channel. Hetfield is a real hunting enthusiast and you can easily find online images showing the Metallica frontman beside a huge grizzly bear that he may have just killed? At least, he wants you to believe so

Unvarnished – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – Sure this is Joanie 101 but it is also older Joanie 101, whether worrying about aging on “Fragile” or slashing and burning “Reality Mentality”, she is still writing strong glam riffs with shout outs, and sing-alongs. No, it isn’t Album, but it is still damn good – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
