Glasvegas – Review

October 1, 2009

Glasvegas sound Scottish, with that yelp/catch, and an obvious love of ’50s harmonies. Vocals that can both break your heart and lift your face to stormy skies.

Boys Like Girls – Review

February 16, 2007

With catchy hooks and displays of actual talent, this self-titled album reminds us all of what’s its like to be 16, with only lust and liquor on your mind.

Cake – Pressure Chief – Review

February 7, 2005

The album is okay, better than most of the shit that’s being produced. It’s growing on me. This might be the album we’ve been waiting for since Fashion Nugget.

X-ecutioners – Revolutions – Review

September 20, 2004

At first listen, Revolutions is great party music grooves and beats that won’t quit. Continue to x-plore their sonic landscape, and be prepared to be schooled.

Judas Priest – Electric Eye – Review

May 23, 2004

Though it takes nothing away from the majesty of the band’s finest rock, the videos are every bit as bad as I remember. Also included are six rare performances recorded for BBC television, 1975-1980.

Iron Maiden – Dance of Death – Review

February 2, 2004

Maiden have made a career out of creating godlike classics out of simple ideas: It’s what they do best. And they do it on Dance of Death over and over again.

Uncle Tupelo – No Depression – Review

August 16, 2003

The band’s first album showcases the band’s punk roots most obviously. Despite the subject matter and the acoustic guitars, there’s no mistaking the punk roots.

David Bowie – Heathen – Review

January 3, 2003

The songs sound much more complete, like he spent time on every element. His writing style, doesn’t sound dated, no matter how reminiscent of his glory days.

Indochine – Paradize – Review

November 8, 2002

I’m not sure they’d appreciate the comparison, but I’ve often thought of Indochine as a heavier, French version of Duran Duran.
