  Nickleback, CurbPDF files may take a moment to load

Before Nickleback was famous they were still Nickleback. With the re-release of Curb, Nickleback's first album, it's obvious the Hanna boys haven't strayed far from their original sound despite their more recent multi-platinum efforts. Curb's sound is raw in comparison to Silver Side Up, with a very rusty-sounding Chad Krogger singing undistinguishable lyrics (could he conceivably have had voice lessons in the last six years?).

  Slum Village, Trinity (past, present and future)PDF files may take a moment to load

On first listen, I could have sworn Slum Village and Blackalicious were the same act. Mind you, that's not a bad thing, but the laid-back first single on Trinity, "Tainted," sounded a lot like "Feel that way," the first single on Blackalicious' latest release Blazing Arrow.

  Soundtrack of our lives, Behind the MusicPDF files may take a moment to load

Behind the Music is the third full-length release from The Soundtrack of Our Lives. The Swedish band is formed from assorted members of Union Carbide Productions, yet another European gem that never quite made it across the Atlantic. However, Behind the Music shows a glimmer of hope as an album that could make this group of Swedes well-known in North America.

Embracing nerddom like only Nerf Herder can, the latest release by this little Californian band of geeks, American Cheese, dishes out even more of the delectable nerd-core tunes that so many of us social outcasts have come to love.

With the familiar stylings specific to Coldplay, A Rush of Blood to the Head, will do just that. Your ears will be left happy, lips left grinning, and your cheeks will erupt in a warm buzz. And just like the different parts of your head, the tracks on their second album will offer something different every time.

  Subb, Daylight SavingsPDF files may take a moment to load

It has been two years since Montreal punk quintet Subb released their last major cd, Until the Party Ends, and the band has put those two years to excellent use diversifying their sound in preparation for their new release Daylight Saving.

This album is an incredible breath of fresh air. Its complex sound is miles ahead of the current punk scene, with intelligent guitar hooks and perfectly harmonized whiney Ska-Punk vocals. The disc puts the standard three chord punk songs to shame.

  Take a walk on the wild sidePDF files may take a moment to load

All right, so you've had the full spectrum of beer, you've done shooters whose names sound like bad porn and you're ready for something else. Though there are always the standard hard liquors, you're feeling a little more adventurous, perhaps even a little experimental. You're ready for bigger and better things.

As a paper always committed to exploring all sides of any issue, we at the Gauntlet have gone that extra step to ensure that even the seasoned drinker can learn something from the drinking supplement.

  Step into a world...PDF files may take a moment to load

Generally, I'm not one for routine. I tend to be more of an impulsive type, especially when it comes to drinking and nights out. Which further demonstrates the power of my three-year-old Thursday routine.

You see, there are certain combinations that should never be tampered with. Bombay Sapphire, tonic and a slice of lime. Jack Tripper, Chrissy and Janet. The Ship and Anchor, the Night Gallery and Thursday night.
