The Joy of NewsBin

Apologies for all deadlines that have been missed (though I am cheating for the horror reviews). The wonder that is NewsBin has blessed me with songs from my shady metal past - I'm was able to snag out of print copies of records by Wrathchild America and Laaz Rockit (I kept the two Wrathchild records, the Laaz Rockit went back to the abyss where it rightly belonged) .

On a more legal front - my mind has been completely fried by the awesome noise that is the new Converge album. I am amazed that something that on the surface sounds like the white noise from a television turned to 11 (thank you Nigel Tufnel) can, upon closer examination, contain such depths of emotion and beauty.
