Star Trek Discovery S04E02 Review

Star Trek Discovery S04E02 is the first episode of the fourth season of the scifi space opera TV drama series streaming on Paramount+. The series had a mixed reception due to its perceived retconning of Star Trek canon, being set 10 years before the events in the original Star Trek TV series and by introducing Michael Burnham ( as the sister of the iconic character, Mr. Spock. In season 3, the series transported the ship and its crew almost a century into the future, thereby (cleverly) avoiding any issue with Star Trek canon once and for all.

beabadoobee : NEW POWER POP ROCK N’ ROLLbeabadoobee : NEW POWER POP ROCK N’ ROLL

beabadoobee

beabadoobee is the first artist under this fresh continuing series (hopefully) covering young bands/artists making new music that qualifies as Power Pop Rock N’ Roll. Yes, despite our protestations to the contrary, it does seem that there are young people out there still stubbornly utilising guitars, bass, drums (and keyboards) to write and record music. Not a review so much as a discovery feature that will shine a spotlight on deserving bands/artists who produce the kind of music that Power Pop Rock N’ Roll fans of all ages will enjoy and appreciate.

Best Genesis songs (with Phil Collins)

Best Genesis songs (with Phil Collins) is a listicle idea that has been stuck in my head for a while now. There is a common misconception amongst progressive rock fans that when Peter Gabriel left Genesis in 1975, it was all downhill from that point. This perception has hardened against the band especially in the 1980s when Genesis (Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford) become a genuine commercial success.
