2.29.2008 | Review: John Fogerty - Revival:

Upon first listen it's on par with the rest of the rock veterans. Meaning it's really good but doesn't come close to his best output.

  • 2.28.2008 | Review: Woelv - Pamplemoussi:

    Upon first listen it just wasn't what I was expecting, but in the end it's still not something I'd listen to with any kind of frequency. It's too slow and not attention-grabbing.

  • 2.27.2008 | Review: Single File - Heartbreak & Masturbation/My Best Defense/No More Sad Face:

    Upon first listen this is some hard-to-beat pop-punk and I look forward to a full length.

  • 2.25.2008 | Review: Husker Du - New Day Rising:

    Upon first listen I could have really liked this album. If it didn't sound like it was recorded in a bathroom with the shower running.

  • 2.22.2008 | Review: Descendents - Milo Goes To College:

    Upon first listen if I had listened to this in high school, it would be one of my favorite albums. But I didn't.

  • 2.21.2008 | Review: Minus The Bear - Menos El Oso:

    Upon first listen this was a very interesting album. And not something that I can easily categorize, but if I had to I'd have to say it sounds like Cake.

  • 2.19.2008 | Review: Various - I'm Not There Soundtrack:

    Upon first listen it's a good thing they gave you two discs of material. This way you can make your own one-disc version containing all the good covers (Jeff Tweedy, Cat Power) and none of the bad ones (anyone trying to cover Maggie's Farm).

  • 2.18.2008 | Review: Sigur Ros - Hvarf-Heim:

    Upon first listen it's officially been too long since I've listened to Sigur Ros, because I had forgotten how absolutely beautiful they sound.

  • 2.15.2008 | Review: White Rabbits - Fort Nightly:

    Upon first listen I'm just not sure. There seems to be more than meets the ear, but it was difficult to discern. Perhaps another attempt is in order.

    Upon first listen there are about a dozen smash hit pop songs on here. Simply astounding.

  • 2.13.2008 | Review: The Capstan Shafts - Euridice Proudhon:

    Upon first listen it would be difficult to not compare this to Jeff Mangum and John Darnielle. Twenty two tracks all about a minute long and never using music to introduce or close out or song (or even to stretch a song) makes for an interesting, if not enjoyable listen.

  • 2.12.2008 | Review: The Fall Of Troy - Doppelganger:

    Upon first listen I love the music on this album but find both their screaming and singing
    to be incredibly cheesy.

  • 2.11.2008 | Review: Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation:

    Upon first listen if I wasn't keenly aware that this was a seminal album by a seminal artist I wouldn't have liked it too much. Conversely, if I had heard this live instead of on CD, I'd have loved it immensely.

    Upon first listen it's just not as strong as his last last two studio albums nor his last live album.
