Month In Reviews: April 2011

on Wednesday, May 04, 2011
Another month flies by and here's a collection of all our reviews - be they album, DVD or theatrical releases. Even a couple of telly things. Thanks as ever to all our intrepid reviewers.

Album of the month goes to the return of TV On The Radio (R.I.P Gerard Smith), film of the month to Duncan Jones' second feature 'Source Code', and DVD of the month is jointly awarded to the Spanish language comedy-drama 'Abel' and the Mexican (sort of) massacre 'Machete'. Links to those reviews and more below.
