Upon first listen it's a cash grab by an artist I have no real interest in. I can see how it could be alluring to have all of the non-album collaborations on one disc, but not when it's Master P.
Upon first listen it's interesting from a historical perspective (last time the two of them played together), but you're not likely to listen to it ever again.
Upon first listen I really liked the first few tracks. But by the end of the album I was ready for it to be over. I can't imagine it holding up a couple of years from now.
Upon first listen Ben Lee should be a household name. His songs are the perfect background for everything from Grey's Anatomy to the latest Michael Bay project.
Upon first listen if you don't have any Fats Domino in your collection, this is a great way to get some. Still, I can't imagine many people listening to all thirty tracks on a regular basis.
Upon first listen this is their best album since Gang's All Here, but that's not saying much. It still feels a bit gimmicky and tiresome by the end.
Upon first listen this tour-only covers album is a nice way to reward fans (provided they pay $10 on top of their ticket price). Like most albums full of covers, some work and some don't. It's not that Mr. Confessional does a bad job, but sometimes the songs don't necessarily lend themselves to an acoustic pop-punky delivery.
Upon first listen this is a perfectly adequate follow-up to the amazing Everything All The Time. I can, however, see how it might not hold up on repeat listens, which EATT did.
Upon first listen it doesn't have any of the instantly-infectious songs from their self-titled album, instead, electing to tread water between shoe gaze and post rock.
Upon first listen it's no surprise that their most accessible album to date is my favorite since OK Computer.
