MUPPETS: THE GREEN ALBUM (Album Review)

Written by

510kFWSKJhL. SL500 AA300 Having been in love with THE MUPPETS for the better part of the past 34 years or so (yes, that is ME pictured with Kermit the Frog below right), it's pretty much a given that MUPPETS: THE GREEN ALBUM would be something I'd be looking forward to. Originally announced in 2009 as MUPPETS REVISITED, the album underwent some tweaks before making it's way to market this week.

JUNO'S PIANO (Music App Review)

Written by

juno125Last month we first told you about THE JUNO COMPANY's JUNO'S PIANO, a new App for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch that helps teach children the real-life basics of playing the piano. As a parent myself, and with Kik Axe Music always on the lookout for the latest in music education, I decided to take a test-drive of my own, downloading the App for my iPhone.

POWER GIG: RISE OF THE SIX STRING

Written by

powergiglogoUPDATE/NOTE: After posting this review, it was brought to my attention that much of the staff from Seven45 Studios have been let go, and that the promised DLC has been "postponed" indefinitely, and their full-sized guitar appears to be cancelled. My Adjusted rating is below, and those looking for future expansion on this title need not hold their breath.

When I first came across POWER GIG: RISE OF THE SIXSTRING at E3 earlier this year, the initial reaction was that it was a cool concept, though the guitar itself didn't seem to want to stay in-tune. Regardless, interest was piqued as to seeing the fleshed-out version of the game - the first to offer an actual guitar as a music gaming peripheral.

While my "advance" copy of ROCK BAND 3 arrived just a few days prior to the game's official launch last month, there was no way to accurately review the game in such a short period of time. My fondness for the ROCK BAND franchise goes back to the release of the first game - and in fact, is the reason I got into gaming on the XBOX 360 in the first place. As a guitarist for (now) 18+ years, I was once one of the people that didn't take an immediate liking to rhythm games. That was until ROCK BAND hit and brought drums into the mix.

GUITAR HERO: WARRIORS OF ROCK (Review)

Written by

When the first GUITAR HERO arrived back in 2005, I was one of those people who felt that introducing a generation of impressionable youngsters to the world of music through wielding plastic guitars could be potentially damaging to the future of rock, with potential musicians of the future looking at music as a game as opposed to an art. Five years later, the world of music gaming has gone through numerous changes, and along with that, also changed has been my outlook.
