Mountain Goats - Life Of The World To Come: Life his voice and everything he does. Just sad that it never compares to Sunset Tree.
Mark Mulcahy - Fathering: While good, it lacks a sense if engagement.


The Germs - (GI): Classic and essential punk rock for when you are in that mood.


EPMD - Strictly Business: For when you're in the mood for some old school hip-hop you're not terribly familiar with.
Eazy-E - Eazy-Duz-It: A refreshing look back at how simple and effective hip-hop used to be. What happened?


Monsters Of Folk - Monsters Of Folk: Hard not to compare to Traveling Wilburys, both in make up and spirit.


Mission Of Burma - Sound Speed Light: Good, but missing something that's made past efforts great.


Miracle Legion - Surprise Surprise Surprise: Early version of Polaris that was obviously influenced by REM, so it's pretty awesome.
Mansions - Mansions: Had I not known better, I'd swear these were Bright Eyes tracks
Doom - Unexpected Guests: With an emphasis on rapping and virtually skit-free, it's surprisingly coherent given its disjointed nature.


Mark Lind - Homeward Bound: More balancing of his classic rock ambitions and punk rock roots. Mostly successful too.
Mark Lind - Truth Can Be Brutal: Close enough to a Sinners And Saints follow-up.


Liars - Sisterworld: A little too slow and quiet. Good enough for further listens.
Lewis - Even So: Doing nothing more than the basics really well is sometimes enough. This is such a case.


Lewd Acts - Black Eye Blues: Not exactly innovative, but not stagnant, it balances a lounge between slow but heavy and fast and aggressive.


Dan In Real Life Soundtrack: Sondre Lerche-dominated soundtrack has moved this movie up my "to watch" list.


Kurtis Blow - Kingdom Blow: Mostly terrible old school hip-hop. Notable only for the involvement of Bob Dylan.


Karen O - Where The Wild Things Are: Perfect soundtrack to an excellent movie.
