Feederz - Teachers In Space: As much as I think I love The Feederz I also think it's the concept as opposed to the actual music.
Fall Out Boy - Folie A Deux: Expectatons in the basement results in a pretty good album.
Fake Problems - It's Great To Be Alive: Experimentation can be a good thing, helping a band to grow. But this is way too different.
Jeremy Enigk - OK Bear: Another disappointment in its attempted grandiosity.
Eminem - Relapse: Adequate comeback album. Far from intensity and lyrical prowess of earlier albums. Alludes to future greatness.
Last Lights - No Past No Present No Future: It's hard not to feel emotion fo the loss of Dominic Mallory. Still, the emotion he captures is song seems more.
Sonic Youth - The Eternal: 20 years and they're still putting out relavent records. Simply amazing.
Most Precious Blood - Merciless: Much, much better than Our Lady. Still no mach for Nothing In Vain.
DOOM - Born Like This: It's easily one of, if not the, weakest albums in his catalog. Boring production, mediocre lyrics.
Most Precious Blood - Our Lady of Annihilation: Not as hungry as debut. Sounds muddy, but if you like NYHC, you'll like this.
Upon first listen it was pretty funny. Some jokes, or parts of jokes, fall a bit flat, but I laughed pretty hard at some of them. A lot of politically-related jokes aimed at the expense of the Bush administration.
Upon first listen I just hope the over-the-top electronic experimentation stays in this side project and doesn't bleed too much into their respective main bands.
Upon first listen I really dislike this album after the first tracks. Then slowly, track by track, it reversed course and I found that it easily on the of the most frustratingly, insidiously catchy albums I've listened to in a very, very long time.
Upon first listen it was perfectly acceptable. And had I been a longtime Dinosaur Jr fan, I'd likely have enjoyed it more, but as it stands it's just OK.
