Hey, I'm Maxim Mower (hence the whole 'Maximo' thing - clever right?), and this is a site devoted to two of the most important things in life. Family and love, I hear you say? Chocolate and ice cream? Kim and Kanye?
I mean, some of those things are definitely more important than others...butttt I was thinking more along the lines of Art and Thought. Sounds deep, I know - but don't fret, we like to keep it light round here!
From experience I've found that too many 'higher' arts sites come across as aloof, and too many popular culture sites don't appreciate the arts they're discussing enough, and instead focus on celebrities, gossip, etc.
Maximoco Review tries to strike a perfect balance.
Contemporary Music will be the centrepiece, but I will be stretching my critical microscope across all forms of art. And as any good art should do, this will inevitably inspire numerous Thought pieces, that in turn I hope will inspire you to get involved in the discussion, so you can either shoot me down in flames, or maybe - if I'm lucky - you might even agree with one or two of my random musings.
I will also be posting my New Music predictions for the week ahead, because for some reason I've been lucky quite a few times in the past! Or maybe it's not luck, and I'm really just a psychic. Or maybe I'm just a bit obsessed and read too much about music. Either way...
Welcome to my blog!
Please feel free to comment, like and share as often as you want.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my thoughts!
