ShopToNews to cover music, say hello to Jake


Music. I don't know much about it myself. I'm a fan of Noel Gallagher, Oasis, Foo Fighters and that's about it really and although I do play guitar a little for me it'd be nice to know more.

I'm are sure some of you out there love music and know all about it, so you'll be pleased to know that as well as covering games, you'll soon notice that we'll be covering music too. Like I say, I know nothing about this subject, however I know a man who does and his name is Jake Green, our new Music Editor.

Luckily Jake knows games too, so you may occasionally see his name pop up when we need his help (I already have my eye on his skills for E3), but in the main Jake's sole focus will be music.

As you know, as well as selling games, ShopTo has a rather large selection of downloadable music to purchase, so in this respect we'll have all angles covered, which is pretty great.

So say hello and give a big welcome to Jake, I'm sure he'll return the favour.

Hello Jake, I have little to no interest in todays music, so I probably won't be reading any of your news, but welcome to the madhouse anyway.

Welcome Jake, Look forward to your stuff. First question. What's your opinion on the Device album? Curious as to how your tastes measure up with mine? :)

I like Device, think I still prefer Disturbed but if Draiman keeps going at it, should be some top quality stuff

I thought the album was pretty great. A few tracks didn't fit. The ones with Lzzy Hale and M. Shadows seemsed more like they were meant to be on a Disturbed album and didn't fit the "industrial" tone of the rest of the album. But Draimen is one of my all time favourite vocalists, with Disturbed being in my top 3 bands of all time, and I think he done a damn good job with Device!

Every band mentioned today, the only one I've heard of is JLS. Yay.

Thanks for the welcomes everybody! Device are a little outside of my 'preference' to put it nicely, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the album at least a bit when I listened to it. Technically great, with some incredible instrumental work. For a debut album as well, it shows a lot of promise for the band.

I did kind of think that would be the case! It's just over that really heavy line for a lot of people. Cool to see your opinion though, cheers. Welcome again

Could we have a separate music section in the news feed?
Pyroloveridge's avatar

Yeah, Agreed ^

Yeah I think that would be best, though you can separate each section by clicking the tabs. I think in 'Latest' it'll always include all stories, but I'll ask.

Might want to consider it Joe. Jake is trying to make you look bad with all these posts! haha!

Yep, would appreciate being able to filter out all the music stuff, it's totally irrelevant to me.

Nobody can match Joe's news writing skills, let alone top them I'm afraid. He's a machine.

I'm about 15 years back in music so doubt any of this will be of interest to me lol. If JLDirectionGaga are still around in 15 years time I'll get to them

Hi Jake, Yeh i agree with it being in a seperate section. If you decide you want to cover football news then I'm you man, Not being big headed but I live football! lol

If you take LFC for a football editor I can help him out with a completely biased review of every Bolton Wanderers game. We play like Brazil in every game. The camera angles always make it look like we don't though.....

And if they ever start up a sausage section I'd like to volunteer my services, I am a true sausage connoisseur. ;)

Don't think may of us on here have that kind of taste. I'm into Avenged Sevenfold,Bullet for my Valentine, Slipknot. Stuff like that not JLS or Bieber. Best news that they have split today though so i'm happy with that lol
