    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

    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 What can I say that already hasn't been said?
    Positive, fun songs.Not complex, but enough to make you want to keep coming back.Good stuff!

    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.) ...

    Editorial Review

    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

    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Audioslave
    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.

    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

    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 not a review about Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon's hair.

    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.

    Smothered by the indulgence of his rock star ranking, Jack White steps into the eccentricities of the supergroup, and at first glance, this seems to be a band where White's imposing presence could overshadow the rest. Not the case with these Raconteurs. Teaming with fellow Detroit songwriter Brendan Benson and Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, the rhythm section from Cincinnati band the Greenhornes, White exhales a bit, deferring enough to his mates to make Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have!! Two thumbs up!
    THIS is a great album!! I've always been a nominal fan of The White Stripes, but I heard "Steady As She Goes" and it just stuck in my head and I knew I had to buy this CD, and what a great investment it was. I would highly recommend it. The White Stripes are great, but I can only take them in small doses, if you know what I mean. The Raconteurs are different. I can listen to this entire CD over and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wow!
    I came to Amazon awhile back and listened to a couple of tracks, didn't think much of it.A few weeks later, I had some extra cash and decided to buy it, as I love The White Stripes.From the first listen I was blown away. I had heard "Steady as She Goes" on the radio, but the rest of the cd lives up to that song, and surpasses it.Loved the vocals on "Hands," the Middle Eastern flair on "Broken Boy Soldiers," and the silliness of "Intimate Secretary."The rest of the songs are solid, with "Blue Veins" being one of Jack White's best songs ever.Don't know if this is a one and done thing, hopefully not!Saw an interview with Jack and Meg on the Charlie Rose Show, and this guy is for real.What he did with Loretta Lynn was amazing, and I'll buy pretty much anything in the future from him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars *****WOW*****
    Wow, this is one of the best cd's I have heard in years, not a bad track on here! There are elements of great bands (Zeppelin, Beatles) here but with a modern edge that makes this effort sound almost experimental.Check out Broken Boy Soldiers and Blue Veins, freakin' amazing!The beat on the title track is driving, raw and practically primal.Blue Veins is bluesy with a provocative edge.Run, don't walk to your favorite music store and buy this!Be warned, tho, this cd has teeth, once they sink into you, it won't let go. ...

    Editorial Review

    Since not liking the Scissor Sisters is tantamount to not liking fun, let's just assume that everyone already adores this band and go on from there, OK? The Sisters' hotly anticipated second full-length feel like a streamlined continuation of their debut. It's hard to imagine no one had ever called an album Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars An ecclectic, thoroughly entertaining record
    I first heard the Scissor Sisters' music when a friend of mine played me a couple videos of theirs.At first, I thought it was Fleetwood Mac (please note, I was listening and not paying any attention to the actual video).When I heard it was a relatively new band, one with such a distinctively retro sound, I immediately became interested.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best CD I've bought in years
    So rarely do I buy a CD that I find myself listening to over and over again without getting sick of it. This is the first CD in many years I've been able to play repeatedly, loving it more each time I hear it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good, Though Not As Good as their debut; 3.5 Stars
    After making both one of the most hailed and one of the most controversial albums of 2004, Scissor Sisters had to find a new path for their much anticipated sophomore album TA-DAH. You have to feel some sympathy for the quirky band considering how do you supercede or surpass a gay concept album the quality of SCISSOR SISTERS.Sure TA-DAH once again affirms the sexuality of the majority of the band through glamorous pop things, but it is nowhere near the level of SCISSOR SISTERS.With that said, TA-DAH is consistent and nearly as good as SCISSOR SISTERS, though it isn't as exciting.Here you don't have the "gay-concept" think as heavily as ingrained as the debut and the listener must rely on the pop, dance, electronic arrangements more as opposed to the lyrics such as "t*ts on the radio" or "I left My heart in San Francisco/ at a motherf**king disco".While there may be no hit the size of "Take Your Mam", the Sisters have definitely still got it, if not to the same exciting level as they did before.

    Editorial Review

    Let's see...a rap artist is hyped insufferably, his music is leaked incessantly, his album is delayed indefinitely, the hype grows, rinse, repeat. Welcome to the world of pop music in 2006, when "unauthorized" Internet seepage can somehow manage to simultaneously make and break an aspiring young performer. Lupe Fiasco's unfinished debut CD was slathered all over the Web for months, like some sort of Lonelygirl15, before finally seeing the legitimate light of day. That said, the Chicago-bred rapper, who rose to prominence thanks to his "Touch the Sky" collab with Kanye West, is hardly a slouch. His skittering, low-key rapping style is truly distinctive, and his lyrics are mostly thoughtful and creative without being heavy-handed. Despite frequent comparisons to "thinking man's rappers" from Tribe and De La Soul to Nas, the most apt comparison might be to Kanye West himself: Like West, Fiasco rises above the trappings of the street without sounding condescending or out of touch, and his sound has the same "timeless" quality--partly old-school, partly of the moment. Yet somehow, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A REALLY REALLY!!! good album
    I'd first heard of Lupe Fiasco on a track off of Kanye West's album "Late Registration" called "Touch The Sky" i said to myself man this guys good. As 2006 rolls around I kept hearing his first single "Kick,Push" on the radio I knew I had to get this cd when it came out. When I opened it and first played it in my truck OH MAN it was like opening your first present on christmas day. I couldn't stop playing it from "Real" to "The Emporer's Soundtrack" and the track that makes you think of the special girl in your life "Daydreamin" featuring Jill Scott, this is album you should DEFIANTLY add to your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Might be the best album of the '06!
    I picked up this album just 2 try something different 4 a change. There hasn't been 2 much good rap/hip-hop lately, but I spoke 2 soon because this album is definitely a classic. Name a rap/hip-hop album u can play from beginning 2 end, there aren't many. This dude is on some other s***, I really was surprised how great this album was. Anytime Jay-Z is backin' u, it is some magic there and Lupe Fiasco opened another door for people who listen 2 rap/hip-hop and others who don't. If u can't feel this joint, something is seriously wrong with u. The only album that may top this is Jay-Z's new joint and Luda's joint wasn't 2 bad either.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the return of "happy rap" for the kids, but with dark undertones
    As interesting and clever as Lupe Fiasco is, I have to say, don't believe the hype.What we have here is the return of "happy rap," similar to the Fresh Prince, early De La Soul, and the other middle class rappers that basically influenced Kanye West (who put on this kid).As evidenced by the other posted reviews, Lupe shows that "happy rap" is effective in crossing over and appealing to white kids (and kiddies) and even rock fans. Many of his songs, with their pop rock structures, even sound like rock, especially "Instrumental."Lupe actually sounds a lot like The Future Sound (not of London), a two man crew from New York who had an album back in 1992 called "The Whole Shabang, Vol. 1" which included a lot of clevel jazz and rock samples and also had psychedelic sounds and raps just like this CD.That said, I have to say that the main difference between Lupe and his predecessors is that he does have a bleak side as well as a happy one, and ironically, this is where the young brother shows promise.Some may look upon his stuff as "dork rap" given his square kid flow, schoolboy glasses, and skateboarder personality.But on songs like "He Say She Say," "American Terrorist," and "Kick Push II" (which sounds so much like an old school De La track it borders on plagiarism) he shows an edge that balances out the dorkiness.Maybe the problem lies with his flow itself.At times his raps sound affected like he's trying to say too much in his cadences.Listen to how many times he inhales while he's trying to rhyme fast.Maybe he should stop using so many silly methaphors and similies and just use direct language to make his point (and that doesn't mean he needs to cuss either).In any case, if this kid would just work on his flow some more, develop a little more of an edge, and not come off so much like "I'm Kanye's dorky little brother" than he would be worth the hype. Until then, peep Kenn Starr or Skyzoo for the real kids who are coming up with the hypeness.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice album from a very nice guy
    This review contains nothing new from what you have already read from the other customers who have heard, and own this particular album. This is straight up country music album, as what a country album should be. I bought this album mainly because I was blown away by the song "Your Man". Although the songs here are strong, besides that smash hit "Your Man", highlights of this record are: Lord Have Mercy on a Country Boy, Way Down South, and Gravity. Why I didn't give this album a full 5 star is there are some songs that I didn't particularly enjoy: "No Rush" is a drag, too slow for my liking therefore I think it's entitled appropriately and "White Noise" is an okay song, I just never was a fan of Jon Anderson. Overall, Josh's second release is worth the listen. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars blown away
    At work, I only needed the traffic report before hitting the hiway, and found it on some country station. I normally do not listen to country, being a classical music lover. Whilst listening, this singer came on with the 'your man' song, and I found myself amazed at this voice. Days to follow I looked forward to the traffic report, and to hopefully hear this voice again. They played another song 'will you go with me' by this singer, and his name was mentioned after, and so in knowing his name, I found his albums on amazon. Well now I can say I definately am a country fan, and am ordering his music. Am very impressed and happy for finding thisopen door into a beautiful sector of music that I haven't explored before.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not a perfect album, but good
    From the first time I heard "Would you go with me" I loved that song. (The video is good, too.) The banjo and mandolin combine so beautifully that the tune sticks in your head and heart.I am not a big country fan to begin with, but Turner's voice was so good I figured I'd buy the album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE ROOTS CREW
    Yo the roots come sick wit it again! The title track ranks among thier best ever. The first 5 songs are all fya. Questlove, though the human beat machine breaks off some crisp beats. He alternates between electric and traditional sets. There is nothing as jazzy as "one shine", "what they do", or "break you off". Progessive hip hop/rock comes alive on title track (my fav). "Here I come" is another dope track. The keyboard guitar and bass breath 2gether on this album. This is truly one of the few hip-hop concept albums. G.T. is bold, thick, daring, melodic yet heavy. Though it ain't classic The Roots lived up to the wait of this album. I wish they got mo props and pub. They deserve it. They signed to Def Jam and went more underground. F^CK JAY-Z!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT DONT FEEL RIGHT SUPPORT THE ROOTS One.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Game Theory
    All, I have to say is wow.Who would have thought The Roots would have grown into mighty musicians.They are a movement and if you are just catching on, then you need to go spend the $200 on released material, white labels, mixtapes, concert tapes and DVDs.The Roots have always delivered the right music for the right moment.Somehow, they have never been able to escape the realm of the backpackers.After signing with Def Jam under the Jay dynasty, I was hoping Def Jam's massive marketing machine would send them skyrocketing into mainstream music success.

    Editorial Review

    John Mayer's big-label debut was a multiplatinum breakthrough success whose sensual anthem "Your Body Is a Wonderland" scored him an unlikely Grammy for Best Pop Vocal. That out-of-the-box succes--and more than a few critics grousing that Mayer's muse was cloned from Dave Matthews--primed him for the typical sophomore slump. Instead, Mayer delivers an album whose tone and title suggests a gentle, tongue-in-cheek rebuke to his naysayers. Propelled by the subtle ambitions of an expanded pop-jazz framework (largely courtesy of Sheryl Crow/No Doubt/Jellyfish producer Jack Joseph Puig), Mayer's breathy vocal tack now suggests a detached, conflicted, and significantly less precious incarnation of Michael Franks. But, the way he weds fluid pop hooks to lyrical concerns whose self-obsessions are undercut by telling dollops of self-deprecation from the my-spirit's-too-big/smart-for-my-body laments of "Clarity," the upbeat single "Bigger Than My Body," and the bluesy plea "Come Back to Bed" to the cautionary, melodically-rich "Daughters" and even the antimaterialist agitprop of "Something's Missing should clearly draw in listeners."

    5-0 out of 5 stars He Ain't Heavy...
    Up until getting Continuum and listening to it twenty times, Heavier Things remained in my head as my all time favorite JM CD.Everyone loves Room for Squares and we all got introduced to John through that one, and everyone loved it immediately.But the first time I listened to Heavier Things, I thought, "not quite as good as Squares."The second time I listened to it, I thought, "hey this is pretty damn good."Then I started listening to it out on my daily walks, and the more I listened to it, the more I thought it was amazing.I liked John after Squares, but it was listening to Heavier Things over and over that really made me fall madly in love with him.Made me want to see him in concert, and again... Made me buy Try! and Any Given Thursday (DVD and CD, both great), and Continuum, and devour them and play them at home, in the car, etc. etc.I hope that John will keep putting out new stuff for a long, long time.I can't can't can't get enough of his music.He ain't bad to look at either!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Holds up to Squares....
    John Mayer is a true musician in a time of mindless pop & annoying celebrity singer wannabees. I had to listen to Heavier Things a couple times before I appreciated the more subtle and mature tone. That may be the reason why some were disappointed. It lacks the "hooks" and some of the "wit" of Squares but has an abundance of true musicianship, emotion and maturity. For me the big hits of Room for Squares (No Such Thing & Your Body is a Wonderland) have worn a bit thin over time. There are no such tracks on Heavier. I've listened countless times & none have gotten old for me. Heavier is a beginning to end listen. No tracks need be skipped.
    4-0 out of 5 stars John Mayer: New to me.
    Though John Mayer is new to me, I have always liked the 'soft rock' genre. I got drawn in by the easy rock guitar selections, (especially 'Clarity') and listening to the lyrics came later.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Subtly, strangely catchy..brave new world robotic pop..
    From the beginning of the title song on Thom Yorke's new solo album, with the grainy piano sample and all, I was prepared to not like this album. This album is predominantly electronic, and I really like electronic music (Warp, Aphex, Global Goon, Boards, Plaid). I even liked Radiohead's last few albums more than anyone I know, most of my friends despise them. But I was hoping Yorke would do something on this "side project" more like old Radiohead, honestly. Right, expectations dashed, and once I got over that, I could appreciate this album for what it is.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. You just have to give it time.
    I was immensely dissapointed with this album the first time I heard it. But I kept listening and one day it just clicked. First it was Harrowdown Hill...possibly the best song of the year in my opinion, then "And it rained all night" then slowly every song on this album became a masterpiece, there is a certain gradiousity in this albums simplicity. Seriously, If you like Kid A, Amnesiac, or Hail to the Theif...you will come around on this. One of the top 5 albums I've heard this year.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Thom Yorke: no talent big-mouth with nothing to say
    Funny how black kids outta Harlem and Watts know the score when it comes to capitalism (it works if you let it) despite having never benefited from it, yet rich white kids view it with nothing short of contempt and disdain, as if "work" were another dirty four-letter word.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Michelle Branch goes Country
    I am a longtime fan of Michelle Branch and of both her previous albums--Spirit Room and Hotel Paper.When I heard she had joined up with another female singer and started a duo, I was interested, though somewhat dismayed by the delay of their album release.When I finally learned that it came out, I balked to learn that it was classified as Country.After all, I am not a Country fan, and greatly preferred the somewhat pop/rock turning towards alternative feel of Branch's first two CDs.But after listening to samples of songs on Amazon and iTunes, I decided to give the CD a shot anyway--Michelle Branch, to this day, remains the only singer I have enough confidence in my enjoying her music that I would buy one of her albums entirely on blind faith.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty and Talented
    It seems like just yesterday that Michelle Branch delivered to us a little bit of this and a little bit of that with Santana.Now, a few hits and a few years later we find her turning her back on the modern/alternative rock radio stations that were rumored to be a thorn in her side.Michelle teams up with Jessica Harp to deliver an Alt-Country cd that, at times, sounds like Sheryl Crow meets the Dixie Chicks. I've been hearing the first single Leave The Pieces streaming out of sound systems in just about every type of retail setting possible.I'd say that "pretty" little Michelle & Jessica will be making a "wreck" out of the charts for quite some time.The bottom line: mirror & ear friendly cd. ;) ...

    The style known as "anti-folk," as realized by practitioners like Ani DiFranco and Billy Bragg, is derived from a punk aesthetic, and thus tends to be spare and confrontational. But while Regina Spektor's music is anti-folk in the way it subverts the traditional coffeehouse vibe, it's less interested in rebellion and more concerned with the joy of eccentricity, melody and surprise.

    I think she is just brillant. I've seen her live once now-- and she just sets the room on fire with talents. I have loved her since the moment I fell upon Soviet Kitsch and I am addicted to "Begin To Hope". I simply can't listen to it enough. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. I think I may have "Samson" on repeat for the next century or so.

    4-0 out of 5 stars good second
    I saw Regina Spektor play recently in Los Angeles. It was at the El Rey Theater. It was sold out. There was an excitement in the air, which you imagine there was for the Beatles. Regina Spektor has a lot of young female fans. Maybe it was some girls who saw her play a few years ago opening for the Strokes or Kings of Leon? Anyway I have seen her play a few times now, and the audiences are getting bigger and more enthusiastic. This is the sort of audience that you get for Bjork or Joanna Newsom. Everyone is quiet and on the edge of their seats. They hang on to every word. The first album was quirky and sort of fit in with the anti-folk thing. This record is a more planned out thing. It's a better-produced record. There are some really poppy songs like "Better." This sounds like a hit for anyone else. This record has more experience behind it, and Regina has grown up a little bit. She sounds really good. Not a weak moment on here. Even Nick Valensi of the Strokes appears on a song.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I like it but i don't love it
    Regina Spector is getting a lot of publicity these days. She is all the rage. She also is definitely not in the mainstream and this is an acquired taste.

    tool is weird because it takes all the sounds I was alredy hearing in my head and is able to make it into a song. when I am coming down,(thanx hofman) that whole whine changing pitch is alredy in my head before I even herd this song. so Its getting a chance to reveb in my head. You dont just listine to it. there is an interaction there. it also amazes me how they get that sound. you can challange every band to make new material and you still wont be able to get that sound and it just wont happen. I also like when they try to put tool in a genre. tool should be its own classifacation until further justifacation on this revelation and plausible hesitation w/o retaliation or condemnation............tion

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best from Tool, but still leagues ahead of anyone else...
    Tool are, of course, one of the greatest bands on the planet, and are therefore held to a higher standard than other ordinary 'rock groups'. I think its safe to say they've achieved cult status in the course of their career, and each new release is examined by the legions of Tool freaks like some mysterious artefact discovered on a distant planet. 10,000 days was highly anticipated (to put it mildly), and took its own sweet time getting here. Like many other Tool fans, I bought it immediately upon its release, and... was not disppointed. It doesn't cut as mercilessly as Lateralus, but after repeated listenings, I feel I am only beginning to penetrate its mysteries. A measure of its brilliance when most rock albums these days grow tired within a week or two. The band are incredible on this thing, particularly the guitarist, Adam Jones, who we can now consider as the leading master of the instrument. Maynard is Maynard, and does his thing like only he can. The songs are long, yes, but so what? A band this great needs room to explore and that's exactly what they do, taking us along for a wild ride in the process. Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of Lateralus (what does?) 10,000 Days is a fantastic album (in a really cool package) and no Tool fan will be disappointed. The only niggle I have is that there is a bit of filler on the album which shouldn't be there. Not after five years of navel-gazing and rumination (or were they actually working on their tans on the beaches of Majorca?). If there were two more great songs here instead of the noodling bits, this album would get 5 stars, no problemo. Let's just pray the next one comes a bit quicker... ... Read more
