The Leonard’s Lair Weblog is intended as the replacement for the website. The Weblog will be the place to keep up to date with the latest reviews and is also set to include features, news on new releases and any other ideas which I can come up with. As of July 2012, Leonard’s Lair is now on Facebook where I post links to reviews as well as my favourite videos and songs. Feel free to Friend or Follow me on

NB As of June 1st 2015, I have decided to take a (possibly permanent) break from taking on new music submissions. I am still working through a backlog of albums going back to September 2014 and will then decide what, if anything, I will do with this blog.

    This is just to wish you a Happy New Year and the best wishes for you this and the next years. Hope you have had a good time there.

    It’ll be good to hear your news.

    Take care

    Thanks so much for the kind write-up. We’re heading back into the studio next months to record a follow-up EP of some ideas we’ve been floating around. Will make sure to let you know how it’s coming —

    Hey, I was just wondering if you would do me a favour? I’ve been running a music reviewing blog called and I was wondering if you could give me some feedback on how to improve because your blog looks amazing 🙂 Perhaps you could guest blog on mine sometime 🙂

    Hi 🙂 I run a blog similar to you that does music reviews of albums etc. I was wondering could you check my blog out, then provide some feedback. (search for a post called ‘Star Opinion’) 🙂
