ROCKTOPIA to hit the 5000 album reviews landmark

Fireworks 78 Photo Mosaic Thumb
As Rocktopia has been consistently adding reviews to our vast, searchable database, we realised we're very near hitting an impressive landmark of 5,000 album reviews!

To celebrate, we thought it would be fun to ask the various writers at Fireworks Magazine to review an album that changed their lives in some way. They were only to glad to oblige, so if you want a break from growing all the latest releases, enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane, with giants of the genre like Queen, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Status Quo listed alongside some less obvious, but equally well thought out choices.

See how many of their picks you agree with and feel free to write you own reviews! Click HERE to visit the Rocktopia Album Reviews section.

Starting on Monday, April 17, we will add 5 to 10 '5000 landmark album reviews' every day.

Have fun! :)

Here's a photo mosaic generated from the covers of all previous album reviews posted on Rocktopia. Can you spot an album you like? Click HERE to download the full-res image.
