3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's a southern thang., July 19 2004
This review is from: Southern Rock Opera (Audio CD)
I must say that I never cared about "Lynyrd Skynyrd" much, but I saw this compared to other things I did like, and gave it a shot. Overall I'd say it's pretty good. They definitely walk that line between classic southern rock, and some of the recent alt-country bands, and I can see how "Southern Rock Opera" could please either crowd. There's a few slower/speaking parts that drag this down some, but tracks like "72 (this highway's mean)" and "Guitar Man Upstairs" rock along well. "Ronnie And Neil" is really good, and actually sounds like "Crazy Horse" to my ears, which may be the point. Not every song amazes, and I wonder if this wouldn't have been a better 15 track single disc, but oh well. So even though this is a decent album, I think when the mood strikes, I'll reach for "My Morning Jacket" instead.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's both strange and angelic., July 19 2004
This review is from: Strange Angels (Audio CD)
I picked this album up because I'm a fan of "Throwing Muses", and I assumed her solo work would be something like that. Well, the similarities are there, but this is no "The Real Ramona". "Strange Angels" is pretty much an acoustic album, so it's not really alt-rock, as much as it is a folky singer/songwriter kind of thing. Overall it's good, just not great. Because it's only her singing and playing, many of the songs tend to sound the same, all good, just similar. I doubt this is her best release, but if you're a fan, especially of her voice and guitar work, you should love "Strange Angels".

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "It's Reggae"., July 19 2004
This review is from: Charge (Audio CD)
"H.R.'s" band "Bad Brains" may be the punkest of the punk, but this is nothing but cool reggae jams and positive vibrations. The whole disc is good, but I especially like "Shame In Dem Game", "Selassie Fee", and "Saddest Day". His album "Singin' In The Heart" is great as well, but it doesn't have the sweet cover photo like this does. He also actually has an anthology out too. Whatever you do though, don't see him live, he's an absolute nut-job.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Go for "Yield" and don't stop., July 19 2004
This review is from: Yield (Audio CD)
In my years of listening to "Pearl Jam", I've enjoyed everything from "Ten" to "Riot Act". If I had to keep just one of their albums, the one I find is the best of all things "Pearl Jam", it would be this one. It's not the straight forward rock record the first two were, but also not quite the experiments that "Vitology" and "No Code" are. It's the perfect middle ground of everything before it. There's a number of grunge/punk rockers like "Brain Of J" and "Do The Evolution", as well as some mellower tracks which I feel they excell at, like "Low Light" and "All Those Yesterdays". Plus bonafide hit material like "Given to Fly" and "Wishlist" both are. Now again, I like most everything they've done, but this is the disc I'm most "Faithful" to.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "Nobody Knows" how good this is., July 19 2004
This review is from: J Falkner Presents (Audio CD)
Like many people, I heard of "Jason Falkner" after many years of listening to "Jellyfish". Though this album isn't the caliber of those from his former band, it is similar, and still very good. It's smart alt-pop, well constructed and easy to like. I tend to enjoy the first half of this disc more than the other, but it's all good at the very least. There's also a 12th track on the album called "Untitled", which is actually one of my favorites, and a great ending to a great record. As with most albums, this too gets better with each playing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Neil., July 19 2004
This review is from: Freedom (Audio CD)
I had enjoyed "Neil Young" as a casual listener before this, but "Freedom" is the first album of his that I totally absorbed and loved. Whether it's his "comeback" or not doesn't really matter, it's just near perfect in my book. It starts and ends with different versions of "Rockin' In The Free World", one of his signature songs. Both amaze. "Crime In The City (sixty to zero part 1)" is a great epic track, and "Don't Cry", "Hangin' On A Limb", and "Eldorado" are all slower, but moving, and have great guitar throughout. Other highlights to me are "Too Far Gone" and the excellent "No More", which I think was another single from this album. I'm now a huge fan of 15 years, and if I kept only 3 "Neil Young" albums, "Freedom" would easily be one of them.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 George Michael's "Thriller"., July 19 2004
This review is from: Faith (Audio CD)
If I remember correctly, I believe this was the best selling album of 1987. Why, well six of these were big hits, and one quite controversial at the time. This album also is fairly diverse, having upbeat dance tracks, and smooth ballads as well, and all very good. The songs "Faith", "I Want Your Sex", and "Monkey" all got your feet moving, while others like "One More Try" and "Father Figure" were slow and sexy. "George Michael" has had good albums since this one, but there's no doubt this is possibly his best, and is one of the 80's best too.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Where's Vol. 2?, July 19 2004
"Faith" may have been the album that made him a superstar, but I think this is the album I listen to and enjoy more. There are still pop jams and ballads, but it feels more consistent than the previous album did. Also, unlike "Faith", this disc feels more timeless and removed from the 80's, even though it was released just in 1990. "Praying For Time" and "Freedom" are two of his best songs ever, and they both start off the album. "Waiting For That Day" and "Heal The Pain" are two great upbeat tracks, while a song like "Mothers Pride" is beautiful and moving. I find "Older" to be similar to "Listen Without Prejudice", but not quite as good. Overall my favorite of his, and I still listen to it often.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Wildflowers" will grow on you., July 19 2004
This review is from: Wildflowers (Audio CD)
"Full Moon Fever" may have been more popular, but I think this is at least as good. Actually this has a few hits of it's own. "It's Good To Be King" and "You Don't Know How It Feels" were both singles. Other strong songs are "You Wreck Me", "Cabin Down Below", "A Higher Place", and the title song. In fact, every track here is very good, or excellent. "Wildflowers" is even more essential to own when you consider that neither of the "Greatest Hits" collections include any of these songs (different label). I'd say if the casual fan gets one album after a "Hits" disc, it's got to be this one. I might even get this first it's so good.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's what you've been "Waiting" for., July 19 2004
Well if the "Greatest Hits" didn't do it for you, this 2-cd set should. "Anthology" is a great example of not just quality, but quantity as well. Included is everything from "Breakdown", "Refugee", and "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around", to "Don't Come Around Here No More", "Learning To Fly", and all the hits from the "Full Moon Fever" album. Unfortunately, like the other "Hits" disc, this also has nothing from his excellent "Wildflowers" album, which was on a different label. However, that album and this anthology together would make a great "Tom Petty" collection. This alone is a good start though.
