3.31.2008 | Review: Flat Duo Jets - Two Headed Cow:

Upon first listen this was a very interesting album. Part blues, part punk, part rockabilly, part instrumental. I'm still taken aback by its uniqueness.

  • 3.28.2008 | Review: FC Five - Super Bloom:

    Upon first listen either I've forgotten how formulaic they once were or they've become a lot more so. Either way I'll have to pass.

  • 3.27.2008 | Review: The Forms - The Forms:

    Upon first listen I loved most of the songs, but was expecting a little more cohesiveness or flow. Either way, I'm sure it'll get more than a few listens.

  • 3.26.2008 | Review: Destroyer - Trouble In Dreams:

    Upon first listen I enjoyed this album more than Rubies but still not as much as the rest of the internet.

  • 3.25.2008 | Review: British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?:

    Upon first listen I liked this album much better than Open Season, but still didn't feel wholly interesting like their debut. Still, it was good enough to revisit.

  • 3.24.2008 | Review: Bowerbirds - Hymns For A Dark Horse:

    Upon first listen there is a ton to like on this acoustic/folk/weird album, just not enough to come back to again and again.

  • 3.20.2008 | Review: The Hives - The Black and White Album:

    Upon first listen it's easy to surmise that a few years from now when a Greatest Hits of The Hives is released, it will include a few of these tracks. But that's where they're strength remains - in the hits, the singles.

  • 3.19.2008 | Review: Rollins Band - Weight:

    Upon first listen I usually complain about bands mixing their vocals too high. In this case, they've been mixed far too high. It's like Rollins is doing Def Poetry and there's this pseudo-hard rock music behind it. Way behind it.

  • 3.18.2008 | Review: Bob Dylan - The Other Side of the Mirror:

    Upon first listen it's great to have all of his Newport Folk Festival performances in non-bootleg form, sounding cleaner than ever.

  • 3.17.2008 | Review: The House of Love - The House of Love:

    Upon first listen I was expecting more jangly guitars and more rhythm. What I got instead was seemingly-repetitive songs about love (how'd I miss that clue?).

  • 3.14.2008 | Review: Ghostface Killah - The Big Doe Rehab:

    Upon first listen Ghostface proves once again why he is one of the top MCs still putting out music. Maybe ever.

  • 3.13.2008 | Review: Thrice - The Alchemy Index, Vols. 1 and 2:

    Upon first listen it's a very hit or miss affair on the first disc of harder tracks. The second disc is a bit more consistent and interesting.

    Upon first listen I can't believe it's taken me so long to listen to such an amazing album.

  • 3.10.2008 | Review: A Wilhelm Scream - Ruiner:

    Upon first listen it was a pretty good listen. Still, I couldn't help but wonder how much better it could have been had they not made it so busy sounding.
