2.26.2009 | Review: Neil Young - Sugar Mountain: Live At Canterbury House 1968:

Upon first listen it's not as good as Massey Hall, but it's another nice addition to Young's collection.

  • 2.23.2009 | Review: Chad VanGaalen - Soft Airplane:

    Upon first listen I'm surprised at how much I didn't like this. I've been doing a much better job at screening artists to ensure some level of enjoyability, but this one flew a little under that radar.

  • 2.19.2009 | Review: Spiritualized - Songs In A & E:

    Upon first listen I never was able to get into Spiritualized during my infatuation with post-rock. Their name came up all over the place, but it never struck a chord with me. Well, I'm paying attention now.

  • 2.18.2009 | Review: Red Eyed Legends - Wake Up, Legend:

    Upon first listen it's garage rock that fails to translate to disc.

  • 2.17.2009 | Review: Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line:

    Upon first listen I'm just inundated with really great music from last year. Will it ever cease?

  • 2.13.2009 | Review: Polar Bear Club - Sometime Things Just Disappear:

    Upon first listen I'm not even sure how to describe this excellent punk-inspired, but entirely-unique album.

  • 2.12.2009 | Review: Paint It Black - New Lexicon:

    Upon first listen there seems to exist a disconnect between the vocals and the music. Live, I'm sure this is one killer set of songs.

    Upon first listen it's another solid album, aside from the sometimes distracting production.

  • 2.05.2009 | Review: My Morning Jacket - Evil Urges:

    Upon first listen it's perfectly fine arena rock - and I'm sure it's awesome live - but it's also a little schizophrenic. I mean, Highly Suspicious is a long-lost Talking Heads track and has no business on the album.

  • 2.04.2009 | Review: The Mountain Goats - Satanic Messiah:

    Upon first listen I was expecting something a little heavier, with a bit more crunch. Instead, I got some more awesome songs from Mr. Darnielle.

  • 2.03.2009 | Review: Ida Maria - Fortress 'round My Heart:

    Upon first listen I love the quirky songwriting and odd-timed deliveries, but much like the Dresden Dolls, she takes it a bit too far at times.
