Add It To The Collection: Canada’s greatest exports since hockey are back with their 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels, which sees the 38-year-old band delivering a new twist on the sound that can only be described as Rush. The 12 tracks on Clockwork Angels form a narrative that tells the story of a young man travelling through a dark fictional world. The album has a very big, cinematic feel to it, but even if a sci-fi/prog-rock concept album isn’t your thing, there’s enough melody and great riffing on Clockwork Angels to make this album as listenable as anything the band has ever done.
Is it possible to applaud and cringe at the same time? Can one movie really be so divided? Well, Snow White and the Huntsman proves that you can have a wonderful awful movie. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about seeing a “dark gritty reboot” of a fairy tale, so even though all indications were that this movie was going to be great, I went in with subdued expectations. How good could Kirsten Stewart really be? This retelling of Snow White delivered in all the areas I expected it to, including excelling with some of the best production design I’ve seen in a long time.
