1.31.2008 | Review: The Good Life - Album Of The Year:

Upon first listen there were enough tracks that I liked that I'm looking forward to listening to it again. There weren't however, enough tracks that I liked to recommend it just yet.

  • TheirSpace

  • 1.30.2008 | Review: Flowers Forever - Flowers Forever:

    Upon first listen the only words that come to mind are: subdued exuberance.

  • 1.29.2008 | Review: A Weather - Cove:

  • 1.28.2008 | Review: Blood on the Wall - Awesomer:

    Upon first listen I wish they would settle on what type of band they want to be. If I wanted to listen to an album of various artists, I would.

  • 1.25.2008 | Review: Michael Ian Black - I Am A Wonderful Man:

    Upon first listen I knew before listenting I would likely find myself annoyed by some of his antics. And I was right. But I laughed a lot more than I was annoyed. A lot more.

  • Purchase for $10.77

  • 1.24.2008 | Review: Merle Haggard - Hag's Christmas:

    Upon first listen I just can't get into an album of Christmas songs I've heard a hundred thousand times since I was a kid.

  • 1.23.2008 | Review: Kottonmouth Kings - Greatest Highs:

    Upon first listen this was a very frustrating set of songs (two discs, almost forty tracks). A seldom few are any good and the rest alternate between novelty rap and terrible.

  • TheirSpace
  • Stream a few tracks and clips from the rest
  • Purchase for $13.85

  • 1.22.2008 | Review: Radiohead - Airbag/How Am I Driving?:

    Upon first listen I likely wouldn't remove any of the tracks from OK Computer for any of these, but it's a wonderful compliment to an already-outstanding album.

  • TheirSpace
  • Purchase for $2.39

  • 1.21.2008 | Review: Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True:

    1.11.2008 | Review: The Weakerthans - Left And Leaving:

    Upon first listen I'm not exactly how to categorize this album, but if you're a fan of Piebald or The Mountain Goats (or both), then this is for you (and me).

  • TheirSpace
  • Stream the entire album
  • Purchase for $6.67

  • 1.10.2008 | Review: Various - Stereogum.com Presents...Drive XV:

    Upon first listen it helps that I'm not so familiar with the source material as I enjoyed this album more than both of the two Radiohead ones.

  • 1.09.2008 | Review: Marco Mahler - Design In Quick Rotation:

    Upon first listen this folk album is perfect for when you're going to bed or relaxing without a care in the world.

  • Purchase for $16.09

  • 1.08.2008 | Review: Kenotia - You've Dug Your Grave, Now Lie In It:

    Upon first listen this female-fronted band is poppy and catchy like a thousand other emo-type bands but still manages to rock while not coming off as cheesy like a thousand other emo-type bands.

  • TheirSpace
  • Stream clips from the entire album
  • Purchase for $11.34

  • 1.07.2008 | Review: Kanye West - Graduation:

    Upon first listen this is by far my least favorite Kanye West album.
