First Impressions Archive

**This is an archive of the various entries in my series of articles called FIRST IMPRESSIONS, which find me listening to and then describing several seminal albums from history of rock and metal, whilst also highlighting my own history with the music as well as how my thought process works. The records are chosen either by my good friend Magnum Valentino or myself, although I’ll take suggestions too if you want to make one in the comments section.

The point of the entries are in-the-moment descriptions of my reactions and associated thoughts when hearing an album for the first ever time. The content of the articles may not represent how I feel about the album by the time you come to read them, and are not intended to serve as actual reviews, hence the title ‘First Impressions.’ **
