Soul Asylum- Change of Fortune: Add Soul Asylum to the “Whoa, they’re still around?” category. This was an all right album, but nothing really stood out. In fact, if not for the novelty of who the group is, this wouldn’t … Continue reading

Band of Horses- Why Are You OK: Here’s an indie band I’ve always liked. This takes a while to pick up steam, but once it does, it’s fun. Overall, though, a little on the languid side. 5.5/10

Richard Ashcroft- These People: Does anyone remember Richard Ashcroft? Does anyone remember The Verve? Well, I do. Ignore that I had to go double-check whether it was the Verve or Verve Pipe. But this is a nice, downtempo alt-pop album. … Continue reading

Last night, I dreamt I watched the MLP season 8 premiere. Except for some pre-announced reason that I had forgotten, it was actually the new Hearth’s Warming episode. And it was god awful. Mostly because, partway through, MLP was being replaced … Continue reading

Weezer- Pacific Daydream: Ho-ho! Because I only do five reviews at a time, I can split this pair! The White Album wasn’t so great, but a year later, it seems they found all the fun stuff that should have been … Continue reading

Gula- Entity EP: Hey, do you remember when I used to review internet albums? Me neither. And with the way things are going, I probably never will again. 😦 But hey, someone asked me to review this, and even though … Continue reading

Eric Prydz- Opus: Hey, “Call on Me” guy’s still around! If you’re looking for catchy dance tunes, you’ll be disappointed. What this really is is more akin to Jean-Michel Jarre’s work, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that, so it’s … Continue reading

Panic at the Disco- Death of a Bachelor: Is the exclamation point back or not? I can’t keep track. This comes off as a very PatD album. It’s lively, it’s fun, but they’re kind of going through the motions. The … Continue reading

Tubeway Army- Replicas: Before “Cars”, Gary Numan was in a New Wave group called Tubeway Army. Well, and he was after, they just released music under his name. Also, apparently they were the first group to have an all-synth hit … Continue reading
