TL;DR | Seven Is a Little More Kip Than Winger


After a nine year wait since 2014’s Better Days Comin’, I am so glad Winger is back. Seven is a lot of what you’d expect from the band—melodic, catchy, heavy at times, and technically impressive. I dig all the songs on this one, and there are some standouts that we’ll definitely see on live setlists in the future. But I can’t help feeling a tiny bit disappointed with how restrained Reb Beach is on this album. Aside from a couple songs where he lets loose, he feels underutilized to me, making Seven feel more like a Kip Winger solo album in parts. I wanted a bit more from this full band effort, but still very grateful for what I got.

TL;DR | Across The Spider-Verse is a Visual Buffet for Spider-Fans

As a lifelong Spider-Man fan, and someone who owns every 2099 comic that was published in the 90s, I still cannot believe this movie exists. Despite the laugh out loud moments of ATSV, this is definitely the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy for sure. The story is powerful, the action is great, but the star of ATSV is the incredible design and animation of every single frame of this movie. An awe-inspiring work of art that will be studied for decades. I love this movie, and I’m grateful to everyone who helped make it happen.
