Tuesday Ten: 012: tcf and Stormblast top fives

So, this week's Tuesday Ten. It's kinda ended up as a Tuesday Twenty, in fact.

Tuesday Ten: 011: Bands I *really* dislike

A rather different Tuesday Ten this week – rather than things I like, it is bands I dislike. Intensely. And the reasons why.

They may also show that the artist attempting the cover has more depth, or even range, than before. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 010: Cover Versions”
