My name is Alex. I’m 23 years old, I listen to inordinate amounts of music, and I like writing – so I started a music review blog. Welcome.
I attended McMaster University from 2012-2017, and attained an Honours BA and an MA in English. During that time, I wrote reviews for Sputnikmusic and RateYourMusic. I’ve been featured on the front pages of both websites, and my reviews for them have, in total, amassed over 500,000 views.
- My review for Casualties of Cool’s self-titled debut was featured on the front page of Sputnikmusic, where it has, as of this writing, amassed over 35,000 views. Ché Dorval, the band’s vocalist, tweeted about the review here.
- I presented my review of Strapping Young Lad’s City at York University’s Academic Conference on Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy on June 4th, 2017. I tweeted about the presentation – and Devin liked the tweet here.
- My review for Thrice’s To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere was featured on the front page of RateYourMusic.
- My (very old) review of Justin Bieber’s One World has received over 36,000 views.
I’ve also got a non-music review blog here. If you enjoy baseless rants, rambling stories, and/or obnoxious, plodding opinion pieces, you’ll love it!
