Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time

Sunday evening. You're sitting around the sewer watching your main reported, April O'Neil do a live remote from the Statue of Liberty. Then it happens. A humungoso flying android screams out of the sky and rips Lady Liberty from her foundation, sending hu...

Jonathan Oyama wrote his opinion about Kid A

5 days ago

This was actually the album that convinced me to listen to Radiohead. It was an artsy, non-sequitur piece of work that somehow combined ambient electronics, classic orchestras and grunge rock into an apocalyptic sound like no other. If Aphex Twin was the inspiration for this album, Radiohead was the band that finally pushed ambient techno into the mainstream to make rock sound like art. (Or at least that's what the American rock DJs were saying at the time.)

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

Jonathan Oyama wrote his opinion about Relationship of Command

5 days ago

At The Drive In evolved the hardcore rock sound for the emo punk movement. They were easily the edgiest band on the airwaves. They only had one really big single, but it was the single that turned everyone's heads. It had screaming, changing time signatures and loud guitars. Even if the band broke up soon after Relationship of Command came out, their concerts at this time were legendary for their high-octane, incendiary energy.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

This was the album for everyone who had ignored Polly Jean Harvey at the beginning of her career. It's an epic travelogue about New York City in all it's beauty and flaws. Although the follow-up to Stories from the City didn't quite live up to the newcomers' expectations, we really couldn't expect anything less from the biggest chameleon in rock music. This showed off PJ Harvey at the top of the new wave of indie rock.

Score: 9.5 (Fantastic!)

Damon Gough's first album was a godsend for the indie rock community. It caught the artist in his most eclectic moments, combining alternative rock, funk and hip-hop beats in a lighthearted way that only he could do. His follow-ups would expand those ideas into epic, story-based albums. However, his best material came out in this debut, when he wasn't too worried about the direction of the narrative.

Score: 8.0 (Great!)

This is the very first game that I remember seeing as a kid. It looked incredibly scary to me at the time, because the hockey players fought each other all the time. Of course, these days I just hold it in high regard. I mean, no other hockey game has this many awesome brawls all the time. Normally I wouldn't rank this over some higher-rated games, but dude, this is one of the most memorable hockey fighting games ever made.

Score: 9.0 (Fantastic!)
