About Alex Pavitt
I work in the field of emotion. My tools are instinctual feelings and my laptop is the medium between my brain and the outside world. I deconstruct and rebuild. I imagine. I steal other people's lyrics because somtimes, my own words aren't enough. I spend all of my time somewhere inside my head. I worship Douglas Adams, and in the back of my mind I am always painfully aware that I will never be as good as him or, for that matter, anybody else.

    Veckatimest is 17?! What other madness is going to be above this delicious album?

    • Alex Pavitt says:

      please listen to sound of silver before making your claims that things are madness

      • thefaldkazkid says:

        Oh, I totally did. Totally didn’t like it as much as Veckatimest.

  2. Tom says:

    could you please explain your rating system.
    e.g – melodic quality, track quality, album quality.
    what exactly do these mean. I think i sort of get melodic. But i am not really understanding them.

    that is all.

    also, fuck you about veckatimest.
    hah.

    • Alex Pavitt says:

      ha. i expected that response about veckatimest. but still. 17. you know its right.
      ok, melodic quality means the sounds throughout the album, lyrical quality is the quality of the words (im a big fan of lyrics, i know you aint, so youll probly object to them making up 1/4 of my overall mark), track quality means does the album have a lot of good individual tracks and album quality is does the album sound good as a whole piece.
