    Average like most cds these days, you're lucky you can find 3+ good songs.I've had it less than 2 weeks and it takes me a while to find favorites or totally give up and resell it. My boss heard it and asked it it was church or horror movie music.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No sophmore slump for Evanescence!
    I was concerned ar first about this record because most artists who do so well with their first record have a tendency to fall prey to the "sophmore slump" with thier second record.The Open Door, however, has no such problem.I find myself likeing this record more than I like Fallen, the first five songs in particular made me downright euphoric.This is a terrific album, and I highly recommend it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Make this CD your next music purchase
    The only song I don't like is "Call Me When You're Sober." I almost didn't buy this CD because of that song, thinking the rest would be like that awful song (an obvious bone they threw to the radio Gods). It is completely out of place with the rest of the CD. The rest of the CD is really great. Amy's voice is in top-form. The heavier songs remind me they are still the Evanescence I know and love, and the more melancholy songs are hauntingly beautiful. There is a tremendous layering of sounds on this CD (in a good way). There is a different take than what was heard on Fallen. Every band borrows a little from somebody, and this CD has percussion and sonic effects reminiscent of Tori Amos's "To Venus and Back", and some of the bass and guitar work reminds me a lot of The Gathering's "How to Measure a Planet?" I'm a fan of both, so it doesn't bother me! This CD is an outstanding follow-up to their debut. I think if they tried to make "Fallen Part 2" they would have failed. This is one of the best CD's of the year, no doubt about it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Buy Exclusive Bonus Track - "Daddy's Eyes"
    There are enough reviews already covering all the viewpoints out there about this album. I, for one, think it is absolutely amazing. What I want to discuss is the Best Buy Bonus CD. I think the 2nd track on this bonus disc, "Daddy's Eyes", is unbelievable and would have been one of the best songs on the album. Those of you who have heard it please comment about it. I want to see what you think.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No, This Is Not "Hot Fuss." IT'S BETTER!!!
    Honestly, I feel sorry for people who don't get it. Correct, this IS NOT "Hot Fuss" and that's the good news. But it's ridiculous to keep rehashing this over and over again. The Killers have grown from their last album and evolved for the better. They've gone from novelty to keepsake. "This River Is Wild" and "Uncle Johnny" scream of improvement. I could tell from their recent VMA performance that they were a better band. And I'm not a rabid fan. I caught on to the craze late last time. But you can tell that they're still developing/shaping their style on this record. "Sam's Town" is more about expanding their sound artistically as opposed to strictly writing radio jingles. The biggest problem is that people expect mainstream music to be literal without metaphor or hyperbole and that's their greatest error. The Killers made a great album, you just have to open your eyes and ears a little bit more. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hello? Beck is still brilliant and he proves it with THE INFORMATION
    I admit that my first impression of THE INFORMATION was that Beck had phoned this one in, kinda like a "Beck-By-Numbers" pastiche. But it only took a few more listens for his fantastic songwriting ability to shine through for me. Beck already merged just about every conceivable music genre on MELLOW GOLD and ODELAY, so it's not really fair to expect him to reinvent the freakin' wheel with every new album.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Get your hands on the Best Buy bonus track "This Girl That I Know"!!
    This is not really a review for the CD which is just sick (that's good).I downloaded the bonus track thinking whatever, it's free. I'll listen then delete it.I have no idea why it's not on the CD!I guess they're really trying to get legitimate songs as bonus tracks so you'll actually read about how good it is and feel like you need to go rebuy it which sucks.But anyway, get your hand on it somehow.It's one of the best tracks on the CD (or not on the CD I should say!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beck's Fourth Best Album!
    Rumor is on the street that Beck was deep in the mix on this project then abandoned it to release "Guero" instead. Next thing he knew, he was overseeing "Guerolito" and embroiled in a seemingly non-stop tour in support of both of those runaway projects.

    Editorial Review

    This soundtrack to the hit TV series starts off with a melancholy ballad by Denver's the Fray (fittingly titled "How to Save a Life"), but the well-curated CD isn't all thoughtful adult alt-rock--reflecting the series' mood changes, it offers a wide range of modern sounds. In addition to the expected acoustical numbers (in this case, from Anya Marina, KT Tunstall, and Snow Patrol's live version of "Chasing Cars"), the album reaches across genres and continents to offer the sunny-'60s-pop vibe of Jim Noir's "I Me You," Jamie Lidell's electro-jazzy "Multiply," the edgy punky-pop aggro of Metric, the rambunctious "Sexy Mistake" from the Chalets, and the winning singalong misanthropy of singer-songwriter Foy Vance's "I Hate Everyone." Ursula 1000's Alex Gimeno lightens up the proceedings with one of his trademark upbeat, hip-gyrating numbers (which seems to pay tribute to Serge Gainsbourg's "Comic Strip"), while the Moonbabies' sweet, swirling harmonies deliver the kind of perfectly crafted pop we've come to expect from the Swedes. If this compilation turns people on to these deserving acts, it will have done its job. Read more

    All of your reviews I have to agree with. But there is a song that I believe isn't on the CD for Greys. I don't know the exact title for it. But it was in the episode with the bomb. It was Breath, or Just Breath. Can someone please find out the title so that I may purchase this.

    Editorial Review

    Snow Patrol are frequently compared to Coldplay in the press, which seems strange as they write far better songs and do not appear to be quite so self-hating, nor as rich. Their delightfully dour little pop songs do touch on the melancholic side of things, but the lyrics are wonderfully slice-of-life descriptions. Singer/lyricist Gary Lightbody gives a shout-out to Sufjan Stevens when on the punchy "Open Your Eyes" he sings, "The anger swells in my guts." Perhaps a better comparison would be American indie-rock act Sebadoh? Regardless, this band continues to surprise. If you went to see this mixed Scottish/Irish group on tour after hearing their wistful, breakout third album Final Straw, you might have been a bit confused by the rock juggernaut confronting you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Small Step Backward
    I was a big fan of Final Straw.Tracks like Wow, Chocolate, Run, and Somewhere a Clock is Ticking led the playcount on my ipod for months.I thought Final Straw was a huge step foward from albums like Songs for Polarbears, which was, in my view, boring.I think Eyes Open is a small step back.Overall, it is a solid album, but it lacks the depth of Final Straw.I agree with a previous reviewer who stated that some of the tracks are too simple to be interesting.However, tracks like Chasing Cars, It's Beginning to Get to Me, You Could Be Happy, the Finish Line, and, to a lesser degree, You're All I Have and Hands Open and are good enough to make the album worth the money.Add Gary Lightbody's always subperb vocals (if you don't think a good lead singer can make a big difference, listen to the train-wreck that is the Killers' new album) and you have a pretty enjoyable album.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Grey's Effect
    From the moment Snow Patrols song "Chasing Cars" played over the final minutes of the season finale from Grey's Anatomy, I have been hooked. Since I bought the album "Eyes Open" it has rarely left my media player of choice. From the heavy handed pop rock tracks like "Hands Open" to the bitter sweet "You Could be Happy" the album is a complete package of radio friendly hits. Though it has yet to be seen if it is completely thrashable.
    4-0 out of 5 stars "It's so clear now..."
    Snow Patrol strikes again and again with Eyes Open. Each song on this album stands out on it's own while still keeping a general flow of a complete album alive. Unlike their contemporaries Coldplay and Keane (and indeed there own previous albums) this album is fantastic from first listen on. Right away I had "You're All I Have", "Hands Open", and "Open Your Eyes" blasting throughout my room for weeks. I was very surprised to find out that "Chasing Cars" had become a huge hit (I ban myself from radio) because within a collection of outstanding tracks this one seemed more average and is definatly a weaker single then, let's say, "Run" off Final Straw. Generally, i would maintain Final Straw is the stronger album but Eyes Open has a refreshing throwback to the grunge-esque sounds on Songs For Polar Bears. Other Fantastic tracks include "Make This Go On Forever" and "Headlights On Dark Roads". ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Capitol raised a few eyebrows when they signed indie stalwarts the Decemberists. There's nothing blatantly commercial about the Portland quintet, from Colin Meloy's quavery voice and hyper-literate lyrics to the band's wide-ranging music, which encompasses baroque pop, prog rock, and dozens of other styles. Then again, he did once sing, "I was made for the stage," and those who've seen the group live know this to be true. Sure, they're storytellers, but they're entertainers, too--just not in the Top 40 sense. Never ones to play it safe, their major label debut takes its inspiration from a Japanese folk tale. It travels from the Replacements-style balladry of "The Crane Wife 3"--which joins words like "Each feather it fell from skin/'Til threadbare while she grew thin" to the melody from "Here Comes a Regular"--to the ELP hoedown of three-part epic "The Island" to the haunting duet between Meloy and Laura Veirs on "Yankee Bayonet (I Will Be Home Then)." It's an impressively eclectic effort that somehow manages to avoid sounding scattered. Co-produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) and Tucker Martine (the Long Winters), the Decemberists' fourth full-length is richer, less immediately catchy than its predecessor (there's nothing as bouncy here as Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars They've Done It Again
    I've been counting down the days till October 3rd, and when it finally arrived, I bribed my mom with cleaning my room to go to NYC Virgin Records and get me the new Decemberists album. I put it on my CD player, and I may hav had a small corinary stroke. I love all of Colin Meloy's stuff, including all the old albums and tarkio etc etc. but this CD was great. It still had that Decemberists backround, but was a little more poppy and maybe more major record label-ish. All I know, is that "The Crance Wife 3" and "Sons and Daughters" and "Summersong" will be my most played songs on my ipod within the next 2 months.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Slight Disappointment
    I really set myself up to be disappointed with The Crane Wife cause I bought the pre-release hype. After reading all the good words, I was expecting to be blown away. Then after a couple of listens I realized I had had tricked myself. The Decemberists aren't the kind of band that blows people away. The Decemberists are a band that charms you and soothes you with loving songcraft and theatrical whimsy. Crane Wife didn't inject directly into my blood stream like the infectious Picaresque (my first of the band's CDs). In fact, some two weeks later, Crane Wife is still slowly soaking in. I dont hear the adventuresome and free spirited Decemberists I've grown to love. In fact Collin even seems a little more uncertain in his singing on Crane Wife. Not the lyrics, just the execution. "When the War Came", "Yankee Bayonet" and "Shankhill Butchers" are standouts. 4 stars is being nice. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    In 2006, Danger Mouse is King Midas of the music world. He has an uncanny knack for creating jagged, dense, frenzied beats and odd, eerie, vivid soundscapes that never compromise the music's natural flow. Meanwhile, rapper and singer Cee-Lo, a veteran of Atlanta's Dirty South scene, has never been one to be constrained by hip-hop conventions, and is a willing partner in adventure. The result is an intrepid psychedelic blend of pop, hip-hop, soul, and rock that consistently challenges and delights. It's no wonder that "Crazy," with its modest riff, irresistible hook, and disarming opening line ("I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind") became a worldwide Internet sensation a full six months before the official release of Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great modern-soul.
    I am a large fan of both Danger Mouse's production and Cee-Lo's crooning. Now, I admit, I prefer Cee-Lo's rapping to crooning, but the man does have a unique, and intriguingly appealing voice. Danger Mouse is like the RZA for a new millenium; everyone he works with, he knows how to provide the perfect production to compliment that artist. He's done it for MF DOOM, Jemini, the Gorillaz, and others; Danger Mouse is the best modern producer in the industry.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A "RAGING SEA" of Music!
    I don't want to rehash everything everyone's already said before, but all of the superlative reviews are true.This is one of those albums that the more you listen to it, the more AMAZING it becomes.I have been playing it nonstop in my car on the way to and from work since the day I bought it, and can't seem to get enough.I've always been a Cee-Lo fan, although I confess I was never really familiar with Danger Mouse.Cee-Lo's lyrics are exceptional-- I'd even go so far as to say profound, and coupled with Danger's beats, this album is on another level.My favorite track on this album is "Storm Coming".The beat is just epic in scope, and Cee-Lo really get's caught up in his rendition as the song builds to a crescendo.When he sings "When I sing it's a cyclone, I'm writing a RAGING sea" you FEEL it!That song is great played loud while coasting down a highway.Simply spectacular.Indeed, all the songs on this album are great, with one exception in my opinion- the opening track "Go Go Gadget Gospel".I love "Feng Shui," "Who Cares," "Smiley Faces," "St. Elsewhere" "Necromancer" and "Transformer".A truly outstanding album.Buy it!!!(Oh, by the way, the OutKast double album has NOTHING on this album.I thought Speakerboxx/The Love Below was mostly crap.St. Elsewhere is something wonderful.) ...

    Born to be mild? Amos Lee's sophomore effort for Blue Note follows firmly in the gentle guitar strums of his well-received 2005 debut and opening slots for Norah Jones and Bob Dylan. Little has changed the second time around, which will come as a relief to those enthralled by his first release. He remains a sensitive sort, mixing his insightful, reflective lyrics with lovely, unforced melodies played by backing musicians that stay on low boil. These tunes go down as smoothly as hot chocolate on a cold day, yet Lee brings an unassuming sincerity to the proceedings with his cozy, amiable voice. Comparisons to Bill Withers and James Taylor are accurate if inevitable, but when the gospel organ quivers into "Skipping Stone," it's clear Lee isn't stuck in a folk-pop rut.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Follow Up CD to "Amos Lee"
    I love this CD. I love the fact that Amos Lee is the type of artist who is true to his music and although he may not be considered "mainstream", music lovers will "get him" and his style. Sometimes, as I listen to the music of today,I get dishearted because I find no value in the music, no artistry. Well, "Supply and Demand" confirms to me that their is still real,thought provoking, moving,engaging,and creative artists around.Like his previous CD "Amos Lee", I love the lyrics in the songs."Shout Out Loud" is a great song to open with, and my teenagers ask me to play it over and over again...I have many favorites, including "Shout Out Loud", "Skipping Stone", "Supply and Demand", "Sweet Pea" ...o.k., I love the whole CD....In an age where you may get 1 or 2 songs on a CD that you really like, this CD is filled with songs you will love...Buy it, then enjoy!!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb
    This CD is a great follow up to his last CD. There are very few artists with the originality that Amos Lee has. If you enjoy any folk or easy listening this is a definite must to add to your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is an entertaining new CD from Amos Lee
    I love this new CD from Amos Lee.The first single is entitled Shout Out Loud.This song really puts me in a great mood.His guitar playing is so energetic here.My favorite track is Long Line Of Pain though.It is a beautiful song about personal loss and loneliness. Sympathize is an another highlight on this disc.Amos Lee's subtle voice is filled with compassion for people who are down on their luck.Southern Girl is Amos' tribute to thecharm of a girl from the south.Night Train is a very pretty love song. Skipping Stone is a bluesy sounding song about trying to move on after the loss of a loved one.Freedom is an interesting track.It is a reminder that the pursuit offreedom should not lead to violence.The lyrics of this song are true and thought provoking. Sweet Pea is a simple and sweet song about coming home to someone special.Careless is an excellent song about the betrayal of a friend.I love the feeling of loss and sense ofhurt in Amos' voice on this track. Supply and Demand is a very entertaining CD by a talented young musician and song writer. ... Read more

    To start, I find that whenever I mention Grey's Anatomy to a co-worker or friend, they ALWAYS say, " I LOVE that show!! And the music is SOOOO GOOOOOOD!!" You can't hit the nail on the head more than that. Grey's Anatomy prides itself on good music, so to say this cd is bad, well, that's just poor taste. If you go to the Grey's Anatomy website, they go so far as to list every song they're played on every episode. If there's a song you want and you know the episode, go to the website and track it down, I promise you it will only take a few minues.

    I can't believe they put together this CD and left off what I thought was the best song they used in the entire first season.Unfortunately, I do not know the title or the artist.I'm hoping someone else might be able to provide that information.All I remember is that the song was played in the very first episode (if I'm not mistaken) when Dr. Shepherd chose Melissa for the OR to operate on the teen beauty queen's aneurism.I only recall the repeated line of "put your hands in the fire".Any help?

    I am a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy, and one of the best parts of the show for me is the music.So when the soundtrack came out, I was really excited, even though I was really only familiar with about two of the songs they included.The first time I listened to it, I fell in love with a few of the songs, but a few of the others took awhile for me to get used to.The songs are all very different, with a wide variety of sounds and voices that you don't hear much on the radio, and it works.It is now my very favorite cd and I listen to it more than the rest of my cd's combined.It's that good. ...

    Shawn Colvin's fans are a dedicated and patient lot. They've had to be, to have waited five years for this new release and nearly six for the one before it. But she rewards the faithful with gems every time, and Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful gift from one of our purest talents
    At times rueful, angry, sad and hopeful, Shawn Colvin's new release paints a musical landscape of deep introspection and timeless beauty.Her words penetrate the active listener, a verse, chorus or phrase may touch one of us more than another depending on what life has dealt us (or we've dealt ourselves!), but be assured that there is something here for all of us.John Leventhal (whom I saw a few weeks back onstage with his beautiful and talented wife and musical partner, Rosanne Cash), is, and always has been, a perfect match for Shawn's musical voice.Together, and surrounded by a typically great list of musicians, they have created another masterwork.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ain't it cool-
    I absolutely loved "A Few Small Repairs" and was not sure Shawn would ever be able to top it.Well, she does. I agree that less production is more-- she doesn't need it. In fact, she should do a completely solo album w/voice & guitar and maybe have a few tracks with another guitar & bass thrown in.Her rendition of Westerberg's "Even Here We Are" is perfect--and *almost* makes up for "Every Little Thing He Does is Magic..."I think John Lennon would have liked this one.Seriously.
    5-0 out of 5 stars BestShawn Colvin Album Ever!
    I read on one of these things that this was not an "accessible" album or some such rot. Baloney. This is a GREAT album. Period.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Maturing gracefully, while keeping the fun
    I don't understand all this talk about the Red Hots "putting down their guns", "hanging their mitts" .. and so on. It's like people are expecting a band to do the same thing for 23 years and produce the same type of music, ignoring the fact that bands and musicians like the rest of us, evolve, mature, change.. etc, the point is few bands do it as gracefully and as fantastically as the Red Hots. Sure some songs sound a little bit more tame "Hard to Concentrate", others sound a little bit more Pop "Especially in Michigan", others more stadium or melodic .. but how many bands you know can deliver something like "Snow ((Hey Oh))". This songs bursts out right after the first single - "Dani California" - as if to challenge the current music scene to produce something that's even close in creativity and musicianship. Then how many bands you can think of can deliver a first grade first-nature funk like "Charlie", or "Hump De Bump", or "Storm in a Teacup". The Red Hots sure have moved in several new directions over the years, but they have managed to keep a large enough distance from anybody else doing the same type of thing, to remainsounding original. This is a band that knows how to feel, chill, go crazy and party in their songs, and this is the type of album Stadium Arcadium is. Buy it, it's unique, double albums rarely come this natural and unbloated.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Their BEST album yet!
    I am a HUGE RHCP fan and so naturally i was very excited when they came out w/ a new cd and couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I wasn't disapointed when i first listened to this CD, it is TOTALLY AMAZING! There isn't a bad song on it and i simply can't keep it out of my CD player! All 28 songs are incredible and i cant praise them enough!

    4-0 out of 5 stars RHCP's Mixed Fortunes
    It is with mixed feelings that I review 'Stadium Arcadium'. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are 2.5 decades old and are extreme legends of alternative rock - their style of alternative rock that is. They are the kings of funk, mixing rock with punk as they only can. This album came very much anticipated by all RHCP fans and faced a mixed critical critique by the critics and fans alike. Firstly before I dwelve into the two in one album let me state for the record that the Artwork of this album is the best original idea the band could come up with. I loved the cover and the inside of the package. The back cover could have had a better band photo. But A+ for thought into the cover, very expressive and artistic.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    I got this CD because I loved their radio hits "Bring Me To Life" and "My Immortal." While those songs are beautiful, they are not representative of the rest of the album. Although I tried and tried to get into this CD, the hard rock teen goth style just isn't my cup of tea, and the lyrics are too depressing. If you are a fan of bands such as Linkin Park or Seether, you might enjoy this. However, if you only like "My Immortal" and "Bring Me To Life" because of Amy's powerful vocals, you'd be better off listening to Tori Amos or Sarah McLachlan.

    4-0 out of 5 stars October music
    What else can I add that the other reviews haven't already said? For me music usually unlocks feelings and emotions that very often are tied to places in time and seasons. This album feels like October in Maine to me. October is without a doubt the best month there is and if you ever have to be in Maine, October is the best time to be there. This album evokes the early twilight and cool breezes coming off Casco Bay, moving through the autumn leaves. Really an amazing album. Amy Lee is an amazing vocalist and I'd recommend this album to anyone who has an inner goth.

    Being a lover of great music, including the political genre of RATM as alot of you like to refer them as, and also Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, and loving AudioSlave so much because of the devout attention they pay to the fact that they are a band and no one is going to do a solo CD, this CD jumped out as a fantastic result of guys loving what they do, collaborating in that and wanting to test the spiritual, blues, funk and rock envelope.Put some good headphones on, adjust your bass, treble, fade, etc. and listen to the words, the bassline, the drumbeat and the fact that without having to shove it down your throat or make a point, they CAN make you think. Rock snobs, do not apply.Cornell's voice is without a doubt at its best and he seems happy and content.

    Editorial Review

    In the liner notes to their major label debut, Oklahoma City's Hinder endorse tequila, Belvedere, Crown Royal, Jägermeister, and Mr. Watson 540. In "Get Stoned," photogenic Austin Winkler (who sounds tougher than he looks) rasps, "Let's go home and get stoned." Later, he adds, "The break-up is worth the make-up sex you're givin' me." In "Bliss (I Don't Wanna Know)," the lead singer laments, "The vodka's running on empty." This is a problem because, "I can't stay sober/if it's over." But things pick up in "Room 21" where he meets a "b*tch" with "red lipstick and pale pink boots," who shows him a good time (yes, he said Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I liked this album
    Dispite all the bad reviews, i enjoyed this album very much. I don't stick to one sound, I'll listen to anything from Whitesnake to Manson to Hinder. Hinder's beats and lyrics are catchy and i find myself singing along and "rockin" out in my car...I do get the occasional strange looks from others. I enjoy listening to them on my way to work, Hinder gets me pumped, ready for the day! Everyone has different tastes in bands and everyone's opinion should be taken into considereation. When i read the reviews, i don't get frustrated when i see a bad review, I'm happy i made this purchase, as a matter of fact...I think ill put Hinder's cd in now!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Qualified
    I hated NIckelback.So the first two reviews I saw that trashed this band on account of nickelback were a plus.Recently, here in Anchorage we have a new "new rock" radio station, and they played "Lips of an Angel" pretty heavy and it caught me.Considering the local radio station (for those interested in esoterica, it's 98.7 The KZND and they rock) introduced me to "The Killers", "Snow Patrol", and "Three Days Grace", I will buy this album, and I bet I'll like it.Go sticker Joe!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Get Over It
    That's what I say to the first 2 reviewers with all the Nickleback comparisons."Lips of an Angel" is so far from anything Nickleback-ish that's it's not even in the same decade.This is a power ballad through and through reaching back to the great years of the format and ranking up with best of them right next to Tesla and the lot.I had almost thought that true power ballads in rock were dead till hearing this song.It's nice to see I was wrong.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Another good album, no signs of fading here!!!!
    I bought this album the day it came out, and the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you.Sure, nickelback has a sound that hasn't changed much from Silver Side Up, but that's what many good rock bands do, find a sound and continue to evolve it.This album is multiplatinum for a reason.It bridges gaps over many radio formats and listeners.SO they release different songs to different stations, have many fareweather fans, ect...that is what they are in the music business for, to get their music heard by anyone who wants to listen. I myself prefer the heavier songs on the album.But the album as a whole is pretty solid stuff.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Album Number 5 but sounds like "number 2" pun intended.
    Title says enough. Rockstar is the last song on the album and it is being played on the top 40 stations. Change the title to Pop star. get them a cover on Teen Dreamz Magazine. "stay skinny"

    Editorial Review

    It's no surprise that a group named after something said during a baseball game would title an album after something said during a basketball match. It is a bit of a surprise that this band remains so incredibly good, and capable of surprising even longtime listeners. This one's so diverse and such a mixture of different styles, it's reminiscent of the group's all-request on-air shows they play annually to support New Jersey-based radio station WFMU. Book-ended by two long, droney tunes, you've got garage-rock rave-ups, country-pop, horn-driven R&B, little gorgeous atmospheric songs, some brilliant falsetto singing, and... this list could go on and on. Who else would think to pair conga-style percussion to a Suicide-esque synth drone? Or even to work with longtime Dylan collaborator and strings arranger and violinist David Mansfield and have genius illustrator Gary Panter do the artwork at the same time? It's the little things that matter, especially when you mastered the big ones twenty-plus years ago.Read more

    i think 3 stars is generous.i am pretty dissapointed with the album.. i thought that Summer Sun was a good direction for them to go in, but this does not meet the bar they made for themselves with 'I Can Hear..' or 'And Then Nothing..'There are a few good tracks but the album is not consistent and it's way too long.Hopefully the next one will be better

    5-0 out of 5 stars an eclectic album by YLT
    All of you who already know YLT wide musical affinities, will sure enjoy the last effort by the outstanding Hoboken trio. You'll find all sorts of songs in here, up and downbeat, but, trust me, all of them excellent. The LP runs 70' long, which is a lot, but keeps the level high all the way through.Understand me, it's not a mood album, like Electropura or Summer Sun are, but does pretty well the job, which is, delivering 15 pop-rock nuggets for the forthcoming fall winds. Don't miss it!
    4-0 out of 5 stars terrific indie record that runs a little long
    Before I talk about how good this album is, I want to get my major gripe out of the way. This album is too long. 15 tracks, 77 minutes long, and it demonstrates that it is very hard, if not impossible, for a record that length to maintain any cohesion.

    Editorial Review

    The premise was simple. Bruce Springsteen invites a dozen or so New York City musicians--packing banjos, fiddles, accordions and the like--to his New Jersey farmhouse for a three-day hootenanny, and tape is rolling. The results are sublime, his 21st album featuring their versions of songs harvested from Springsteen's dog-eared LPs by Pete Seeger. Not all written by Seeger, the songs are how the American folk icon interpreted them, and these organic recordings, with no rehearsals or overdubs, pay tribute with the simplicity and spontaneity he intended. It's not hard to link Springsteen's dissatisfaction with American politics to the protest song "We Shall Overcome" or even the Irish ballad "Mrs. McGrath," where he alters the lyrics to read, "I'd rather have my son as he used to be/Than the King of America and his whole navy." But the beauty of these Seeger Sessions are pieces that underscore the mood of the bandleader, which borders on down-home amusement: the bluegrass outlaw ballad "Jesse James," the Dylanesque "Pay Me My Money Down" and the euphoric "Jacob's Ladder," a gumbo-and-whiskey-fueled romp that could pass for the closing hymn at the Church of Asbury Park.

    This is really sad, this is an otherwise excellent collection. But in today's quest for everything to be LOUD, the over compressed this so that it's lost almost all dynamic range, and is just stressfull to listen to. You hear things you never did before-- BECAUSE THAT WEREN"T SUPPOSED TO STAND OUT IN THE MIX!Everything just stays at the same level, it sounds like there are some phase issues on some tracks as well.

    Editorial Review

    Their second album and first for Interscope is almost wholly brilliant. Like Mogwai, Sigur Ros and a dozen others, TVOTR excels at making slowly-evolving tunes with vaguely anthemic choruses and lots of loud-soft dynamics. Unlike virtually any of those other bands, TV on the Radio mix a genuine and actual songwriting ability with their knack for finding sounds that appear to be "new." This record is crisper-sounding and incorporates more dance-based elements, but it's essentially a pop album. While the lack of the free web-released "Dry Drunk Emperor, a tribute to President Bush, is initially a bummer, the album percolates with enough pre-apocalyptic tension to satisfy anyone. In a Prince-pitched falsetto, the group sings "I was a lover/ Before this war," While throughout, the combination of melody and invention is always pitch-perfect (well, except on "Province" and "Let the Devil In," those songs sort of suck.) People of Earth: please make this band into total superstars and buy several copies of their album: one for the car, another for the office, etc. What we really need in our popular music is more weirdness, and more truth.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of 2006 so far.
    This album is so good that I finally decided to write a review. I had to add some thoughts especially since some of the other reviews aren't that positive. Return To Cookie Mountain sounds fresher than anything I have heard in a long time. "Wolf Like Me" is amazing and what drew me to them in the first place. But it's the other songs that will hold onto you for much longer. "I Was A Lover" is a great intro and sets the tone perfectly. "A Method" which no one here has really discussed much, is a beautiful song with layers of harmony that lead into wonderfully sinister drums. It is that kind of juxtapostioning that keeps you on your toes through out. the last part of the album drags a bit, but it's only because the first part is so extraordinary. If you really like eclectic and beautifully crafted music you can go wrong with this. Gets better with every listen!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Turn off the tv on the radio!
    This band is getting alot of critical acclaim right now, but I'm just not feeling it. The single "Wolf like me" is the only song that stands out to me on the whole album. It is a great song, but everything else is just blah. I think the band could use a different singer, the guy they got doesn't sing very well or very "soulful". The music is good, very original and the only reason I haven't sold the cd yet. I really think ppl need to hear this one for themselves before they buy. Don't be fooled by these 5 star reviews. Just listen to the cd before you buy it. That's my advice.

    3-0 out of 5 stars When it works it is friggin' wonderful...
    ...but when in doesn't, it really, really doesn't.I have to admit that if the review were based solely on the songs I really enjoy from this album it would be 5 instead of only 3 stars, but alas as a whole the album, for me at least, doesn't work.That is not, however, to say I don't respect these guys for trying something new.On the contrary, I think that their mistakes are brilliant attempts.That said, the songs that work are, as the headline says, "Friggin' Wonderful"."I Was A Lover" and "Wolf Like Me" are fantastic.The later of the two will definitely stay in constant rotation on my Nanopod for years to come(Not that the Nanopod will actually last that long, but that is another story all together).I would definitely suggest it to fans of the first.The album is a logical progression in their sound, and I can't wait to hear what they do next. ...

    The acting was emotional and impressive, the singing was amazing and the movie was chilling and enjoyable. In fact, I can't stop watching it - it's like a train wreck everytime it comes on. My parents dragged me when I was a young child to a Johnny Cash/June Carter concert. As much as I hated the fact they couldn't get me a sitter, or leave me at someones house - I am truly touched now at the backstory to this concert I didn't want to go to, but enjoyed nonetheless. I wish I could go back in time to enjoy it knowing what I know now.
