3.0 out of 5 stars Good But Ultimately Pop With No Soul, Nov. 30 2009
This review is from: The Resistance (Audio CD)
This CD has songs that will remind you of E.L.O, Queen, Led Zeppelin and many great acts of the past with lot's of hooks, creativity and catchy harmonies but, ultimately, it tries too hard to be great and lacks the soul and meaningful lyrics of the truly great bands it tries so hard to emulate. The fusion of classical music (in particular the piano) and rock does help elevate it from the pop music level where the love becomes forgotten in time. Overall, a nice variety of music worth buying - though likely to be sold in a garage sale after a few years instead of cherished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Judge A Book (or CD) By It's Cover, Nov. 30 2009
About the only bad thing one can say about this solid CD is the artwork on the cover. Pure, pop, genius! A must buy for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars PJ In Top Form!, Nov. 30 2009
This review is from: Backspacer (Audio CD)
This is Pearl Jam's best CD yet! The more you listen to it, the better it becomes - a true sign of greatness. Eddie is really coming into his own with songs like "The End" and "Just Breathe" that breathe new life and soul into not only Pearl Jam but alternative rock as a whole. A must buy for all P.J fans and new one's to become.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Debut Rock CD Of All Time!, Nov. 30 2009
This review is from: Poets And Pornstars (Audio CD)
How this CD has not sold millions of copies is beyond comprehension! This has to be the most over-looked band and CD of all time. A tragedy that the band has already broke up but maybe if the money were there things would be different. Buy this CD already - best money you'll ever spend! Warning: Any Rock 'n Roll loving friend that hears it will want it too! "I Wanna Be Your Monkey" and "Earthman" should be hit singles - among many others on this solid CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic Mix - Even By Ween Standards!, Nov. 30 2009
This review is from: V1 Shinola (Audio CD)
This CD is bound to have at least a few songs any Ween fan would like. As eclectic as it is, there are bound to be some songs you won't like but, overall, I'd say easily their best CD since The Mollusk! A must for any Ween fan and the song's Gabriel and Monique The Freak alone. Boy's Club is the gayest song of all time - makes Homo Rainbow sound straight! LOL. Not near as good a song but funnier none-the-less. If you are ever too far gone, put this CD on.
