Where Have All The Two Stars Gone?

by Andrew Scott | Moi

In bed with bears 014

I have noticed as of late that I have a mere three reviews posted that have garnered less than three stars (and one of them I should just erase as I was coerced into writing it – the Mogwai review in case you’re wondering). So what’s wrong with me? Where have all the one or two star albums gone in my life? Am I just insanely fortunate in what I choose to listen to? Do I never try new styles of music or new artists so to always play it safe in a three star+ dominated, always familiar music landscape? Well, in truth, I’ll admit that as my age increases in number, th...

In Absentia

by Andrew Scott | Moi

Galaxy s4 282

The last few months have stolen from me the ability to put a review together and with this loss of expression finally feeling prolonged, I have had to ask myself why. So today, instead of once again going through the disappointment of crafting expressions, emotions and opinions that will never see the light of day, I thought I should discover why my voice suddenly has no volume to it and why words are constantly keeping their distance from me. As I have been disassembling this position of being mute, I have reduced all the convoluted concepts of absence down to two ideas. These are, in ‘sim...
