Rudimental – A Toast to Our Differences [Deluxe] (7/10)
‘A Toast to Our Differences’ follows the No. 1 album ‘We The Generation’ (released in 2015) and is undoubtedly an attempt to create a different and perhaps slightly mature sound, and to an extent Rudimental are successful in this. ‘Toast to Our Differences’ (ft. Shungudzo, Protoje & Hak Baker) is the lead title track and the opening song to be heard that reveals a new style to Rudimental’s music, forgoing intense, bass-led choruses for a perfect opening song, with the smooth vocals from Hak Baker and Shungudzo, and the flow from Protoje, for me is one of the standout tracks of the album. ‘1by1’ (ft. RAYE & Maleek Berry) has a similarly reggae feel to it, ‘Scared of Love’ (ft. Raye BLK & Stefflon Don) is a successful attempt at R&B and ‘Leave it for Tomorrow’ (ft. Elli Ingram) is a highly sensual pop song and a complete departure from what everyone expects from Rudimental. The same can be said for ‘Summer Love’ (ft. Rita Ora), which is no surprise Rita Ora features on a Love Ballad, as she is the queen of love!
Bring Me The Horizon – ‘amo’ (9.5/10)
Bring Me The Horizon have been on a rocket of a journey over the last few years, selling over 2 million albums globally to date, playing sold-out shows in over 40 countries, including two sold out nights at London’s O2 -along with wowing a traditionally non-rock crowd at Glastonbury Festival in 2016. They have gone from a small deathcore band, to global heroes within the rock community, and they go from strength to strength – only getting bigger and better. Poised now to release their sixth studio album entitled ‘amo’, the band have spent the summer writing and recording in Los Angeles, with Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish handling production. What has transpired is one of their most exhilarating, genre-blurring albums to date from the singles we have heard thus far.
Oli adds: “amo is a love album that explores every aspect of that most powerful emotion. It deals with the good the bad and the ugly, and as a result we’ve created an album that’s more experimental, more varied, weird, and wonderful than anything we’ve done before.” Continue reading
