Southend Who? Album Hall of Fame
#4 RINOA – An Age Among Them (2010)
For many, RINOA’s split at the end of 2010 came as a real shock, and left many heartbroken. One of the reasons people were left so gutted was probably down to the fact that this debut was one of the most astonishing releases ever to come out of the south-east.
The word ‘epic’ gets thrown around a lot when it comes to describing what some bands sound like, but in Rinoa’s case, there isn’t a more appropriate word. The huge guitar soundscapes and impassioned vocals are delivered with such intense grandeur that you can’t help but lose yourself in this modern masterpiece.
Rock Sound gave this debut 10 out of 10, which is an insane achievement and rightly deserved.
