Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

CD REVIEW! Example - The Evolution Of Man
I have to confess, I was a bit taken by surprise when
listening to Example's fourth studio album. It's not quite what we have expected, but,
listening to the CD for a second time, it actually grew on me, and now I'm
loving it! Honestly, if you liked Example's hit songs Kickstarts and Changed
The Way You Kiss Me, then be prepared for something completely different. The
Evolution Of Man is Example's rock star album. Yes, rock! Lyrically think
Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and musically think Blur and Fields Of The Nephilim.
Blur's Graham Coxon even throws in some sleek guitar riffs on Evolution of Man.
The CD is a gloomy soul-searching as Example (born Elliot John Gleave) repent
his sins of drug abuse, infidelity and more. Sounds a lot like Nirvana's Kurt
Cobain to us . . . On the rap-metal but yetbrilliant opening track Come Taste the Rainbow, he claims to have
Asperger's. I salute Example for taking the brave move from pop, dance tunes to
rock. Let's hope the fans enjoy it as much as I did. A big evolution for
Example indeed. Watch the video for Come Taste The Rainbow, HERE!
