Freddie Gibbs/Madlib - Bandana Music Album Reviews

On their second album as a duo, Madlib and Freddie Gibbs pull themselves deeper into one another’s worlds.
On paper, Freddie Gibbs, a straight-shooting street rapper, and Madlib, an eccentric tinkerer, are as mouth-watering a combo as licorice and pickle juice. But their collaborative 2014 album Piñata succeeded because the two are equally uncompromising: Madlib tailors beats to his eclectic ears alone, while Gibbs insists that he can rap over anything. Kindred spirits, the pair bonded through mutual gumption.

Outlaws and Angels Review

Where Are The Angels?



It's an old-style bank robbery in the wild West that begins with the actual robbery, and it's a brutal one. Afterwards, Henry (Chad Michael Murray) leads the gang on their run from the usual hell-bent posse. It's one in a string of robberies by this bunch and it's immediately clear that no one in this gang is going to turn out to be a good guy who is just misunderstood. 


The posse is led by Josiah (Luke Wilson) and on their chase and on their travels they meet people who have fallen victim to the gang as well as some witnesses. Their chase leads them further into the wilderness. Meanwhile, Henry takes his gang of ne'er-do-wells to a remote farm, hoping for some down time to plan their next move.

The farm is occupied by George (Ben Browder), his especially religious wife, Ada (Teri Polo), and their daughters Florence (Francesca Eastwood) and Charlotte (Madisen Beaty). When Henry leads the boys into the farm, the violence of the bank robbery is repeated in the brutality they show to the farmer's family.


Blood flows early and in buckets, with George experiencing the brunt of the abuse. Everything that goes on inside the cabin has an edge of impending danger. Are the three women in danger of rape? That's the direction writer/director J. T. Mollner points the audience, as each woman is assigned to one of the outlaws. But there is another undercurrent at work in the cabin. The farmer's family also has secrets and behavioral issues that eventually get revealed. Florence is particularly of interest, with a very spacey outlook in her eyes. Henry is most intrigued by her and Florence, shockingly seems quite happy with his attention.

George and Charlotte are treated horrifically. The religious Ada is raped and yet it's not entirely clear if Ada herself regards this as a good or bad event. Henry and Florence become lovers and she joins the murderous group. Where it goes from here involves some real plot twisting, with some twists seeming possible, while others ring a bit too far-fetched. The fairly surprising ending may leave you questioning it all, and it will probably cloud your opinion on just who are the outlaws, and who are the angels.

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2019) Review

Should I buy the 15in MacBook Pro (2019)?
You’ll need to weigh up how much you need an incredibly powerful Mac laptop with concerns about the keyboard, but the new 9th generation 8-core processors should sweeten the deal.
