    Editorial Review

    At a time when the majority of those his age are drifting into retirement, 65-year-old Bob Dylan has put the capper on a three-record run that ranks with the best in his storied, 44-album career. Like Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fresh Breeze Blowin
    The music contained within this CD is simply brilliant, particularly when compared for what passes as commercial music these days.Dylan's songwriting and vocals are superb and his production efforts are flawless. The band is in top form and the mix is spot on.This project,as most of Dylan's recorded work, will stand the test of time. My only criticism is the absence of any acknowledgement for songwriting inspiration. Certainly at least a "tip of the hat"is deserved by Big Maceo Merriweather for his influence of Worried Life Blues for Someday Baby. Same goes for Hambone Willie Newbern as it relates to Rollin and Tumblin. Perhaps, we'll have to wait for the next chapter of Chronicles to acknowledge these artists.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Like Wine
    Like wine, and as another reviewer has already commented, Dylan really does get better with age... though that's not to detract at all from his past masterpieces. There are several in depth reviews written so I figure I can make this one short and sweet: the album is great and worth a listen whether you're a long time DYlan fan, a Dylan neophyte, or never cared for him (can't imagine many belonging to this last group...)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still Magical
    Having grown up with hard rock and merging in to jazz with age,I'm not sure what prompted me to buy the album.I hadn't heard it or about it.Bob Dylan was just some wierd musician to me - This one album has changed all that; I'm a new Bob Dylan fan -Modern Times is pure musical magic.It is at the same time haunting, ironic, true, brilliant...(yes I'm beginning to purchase older stuff now..I've a lot of catch-up work to do!)One review labled the music "pedadantic" - likely not a musicians point of view.No it's not oversaturated with gizmo sound and yes it lacks the immediately catchy Brittany Spears pop sound.Bob Dylan is the wrong place to look for that anyway.Relax, reminisce, day-dream - older is sometimes better! ...

    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 A mainstream release for Shanty Music?Thank You, Mr. Depp!
    Hi friends, my name is Dean Calin, one of the singers with Bounding Main.We have released two CDs and are working on our third.I've been performing sea shanties since 1995 and am personal friends with many of the Big Name Performers in this genre.I love the traditional stuff and think that it is Important Music, both for our culture and history.That said, Bounding Main delivers traditional sea shanties and maritime music with arrangements for the modern ear.There are people out there like Tom Lewis and David HB Drake and Lee Murdock doing the songs the traditional way and doing them well.It was our choice to perform in Elizabethan mariner costumes (if you want to call us "pirates," okee-dokee) and to write and perform harmonic and theatrical arrangments.Some of the traditional performers are kvetching like mad about this CD:"Johnnie Depp is going to make tons of money with mainstream artists who don't even know what this music is about, when (this traditional artist) and (another traditional artist) have been out on the ships and the cold, getting wet and bringing the history to the people!"My take is that if Mssrs. Depp, Verbinski, et. al. can bring maritime music to the mainstream, it will only benefit ALL of us!
    4-0 out of 5 stars Eclectic mix of singers and styles reinvigorates these ballads
    The two-disc 'Rogue's Gallery' is a fun and rollicking collection of singers and styles. Forget that it could be misconstrued as a sloppy cash-in by Depp and Verbinksi from the 'Pirates of the Caribean' sequel (which it doesn't feel like) and, on listening, just take it as a reimagining of sea chanties and old english ballads. On first listen, it seemed as though the discs were thematically divergent, with disc 2 having more of the songs sung traditionally while disc 1 contained more individually flavoured covers. While the second disc is pleasant, it was the first disc that made the set worth its money. Some of the standout performances include Bono's aching 'A Dying Sailor to his Shipmates', Mark Anthony Thompson's earnest 'Haul Away Joe' and the nearly mechanical droning of 'Cap Cod Girls', by the fascinating Baby Gramps. Nick Cave returns to the bloody stomping grounds of his seminal 'Murder Ballads' as he does a burningly ferocious 'Fire Down Below', and Gavin Friday has the most fun with the sinfully hilarious 'Baltimore Whores'.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Responses To This Recording From Those "Traditionalists"
    Nothing like reading the "purist" reviews of this collection, who seem to howl like hungry dogs who haven't eaten in a few days as they wrote, to give you a good laugh. The irony is, of course, that for people who claim they study this genre of music and are very familiar with it and advise you to seek out the "real" thing, they didn't do their own homework on who was producing this record or look at the list of artists who were on it. If they had, they would have found out that the producer is Hal Willner who has done this kind of "tribute" record, or better yet, reinterpretation for two decades.

    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.

    Editorial Review

    This teaming of Linda Ronstadt and Cajun folk traditionalist Ann Savoy, billing themselves as the Zozo Sisters, shows how wide is the musical range of bittersweetness. The harmonies and shared lead vocals offer a complementary contrast between Ronstadt's purity of tone and Savoy's more piquant expressiveness. The arrangements turn folk songs into art songs, drawing as much upon chamber strings as Cajun fiddle and accordion. There's an exquisite beauty to the vocals, but the real surprise is how well the album holds together, given a range of material that extends from Cajun songs in French patois to stellar material from Julie Miller ("I Can't Get Over You," with husband Buddy Miller on guitar) and Richard Thompson ("King of Bohemia," "Burns' Supper") to a disarming revival of the Left Banke's 1960s hit "Walk Away Renee." Among other highlights, "Go Away from My Window" provides a showcase for the upper register of Ronstadt's soprano, and Savoy's lead vocals on Bill Monroe's "The One I Love Is Gone" bring out the blues in bluegrass.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Songs
    Ronstadt certainly did some nice work as a solo artist, but then she started doing albums with other artists (Trio and Trio II with Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton and Western Wall with Harris).While those were fine albums, the blending of Rondstadt's voice in this album with that of Ann Savoy is just about as good as it gets.You will swear they are blood sisters when your hear how well the voices blend together.Rondstadt has finally found her musical soul mate in Ann Savoy and this may be some of her best work ever. I never heard of Ann Savoy, but she sure sounds wonderful with Rondstadt.

    Editorial Review

    With her expressively breathy vocals and uplifting melodies, Mindy Smith expresses both the romantic and spiritual dimensions of rapture. It can occasionally be hard to tell whether Smith is singing of God or love, or if she even makes a distinction between the two. Whether she's invoking prayer and sin in the opening "Out Loud," hoping that God's looking out for her in "Out of Control," casting a seductive charmer as a "Little Devil," or recalling her preacher father in the title track, Smith's material blurs the distinction between the earthly and the ethereal. Her duet with kindred spirit Buddy Miller on "What If the World Stops Turning" highlights the album, though the Nashville-based artist rarely hints at country within her buoyant brand of folk-pop.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the debut
    Mindy Smith's One Moment More was a very good debutthat mixed folk and pop. I do not see why some are disappointed with Long Island Shores. From the soaring opener "Out Loud," it very rarely lets up. "Little Devil" has a neat pop/rock part. "Edge Of Love" is beautiful, pure folk. "I'm Not The Only One Asking" reminds me of the rootsy blues on One Moment More. This album is no more flat than fine efforts from Shawn Colvin and Alison Krauss (her newer efforts.) The lyrics show a songwriter that's gotten more experience. I will be getting this CD.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars to be precise
    Great vocals does not a great song make.Yes, her vocals are comprable to that of Patty Griffin, but Patty Griffin she ain't.None of the songs on this album will be remembered past tomorrow and you can't make mediocre songs amazing just with vocals.There has to be music and lyrics to go along with the vocals to make you feel what the songs are saying.I feel nothing for any of these songs.They are mostly lazily written tunes without an ounce of emotion.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Second Effort
    As with her first album "One Moment More", Mindy Smith's voice is amazing on this second release "Long Island Shore". But, I found the music uninspiring and flat. I don't know if the choice in direction was Mindy's or the producers, but this is not the same kind of music that will necessarily appeal to all of the fans of the first album.

    Editorial Review

    This album's title cut finds the veteran folk-blues troubadour, now in his early 60s, pondering the possibility of living to be 100, thus setting the thematic tone for an uncommonly reflective, meditative set. The ragtime Zen of "Open Up," the philosophical "Seems So Real," and the rock-bottom despair in his cover of Peter Case's "Cold Trail Blues" all suggest that the virtuosic fingerpicker and evocatively smoky vocalist has reached a point in his life where he's pondering the biggest issues of mortality, a perspective that informs the complex relationship in "Father's Day."Not all of the material is that introspective, as the uptempo, electric rock of "Diplomacy" is as sardonic as Randy Newman, while "Origin of the Species" encapsulates Adam and Eve, Charles Darwin, and intelligent design. Smither also pays homage to two seminal influences, transforming Bob Dylan's "Visions of Johanna" into an acoustic, accordion-laced waltz and reviving Lightnin' Hopkins's version of the traditional "Blues in the Bottle." Ollabelle provide harmonies on two cuts, with mandolinist Tim O' Brien also offering instrumental and vocal support. Read more

    You can't truly appreciate what Tommy Emmanuel can do on the guitar without seeing him in concert. Still, "The Mystery," the third in Tommy Emmanuel's series of mostly solo acoustic work is intensely satisfying and great listening, whatever your level of exposure to "TE". While many finger-style guitarists are able to generate a lot of notes with their solo playing, none compare with TE in the way he serves up song after song of really, really good music. These songs are great melodies played flawlessly (and apparently effortlessly) by a master of his art.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Sigh.Fabulous, as always
    I think we own every DC ever made by Tommy, even the obscure stuff (anyone remember "The Day the Fingerpickers Took Over the World" with Chet Atkins?).You will never go wrong with a Tommy Emmuel CD.His music, while following a familiar theme of folksy/country style with the occasional rock-ish tune thrown in, is ever-new while still feeling comfortable.Kind of like wearing your favorite slippers. Tommy is known as an instrumentalist, so the odd real song (as opposed to a piece, which is what you call an instrumental item)is an interesting surprise on any of his CDs.The song "Walls" is one of those nice surprises.This CD sounds more introspective than many of his others -- it reminds me of the his earlier music, which was almost purely guitar. There are very few, if any pieces on this CD that have more than just Tommy and his guitar playing.I can tell even now that this will get a lot of play in my house. And yes, the previous reviewer was right;Tommy Emmanuel is one of, if not the, best guitar players in the world. ... Read more

    Having already bough and loved the last OCMS record I was expecting to love this and was not disappointed.While this is bluegrass, old timey music it is also inexplicably modern.Loving bluegrass will no doubt help you love this album, but I also think it is good for anyone who like good lyrics and strong, different instrumental.If you usually like rock or even punk you'd probably like this album.A great album to add to your music collection.

    "Eutaw" was a good album, but poor sound quality. It did not allow you to fully experience the greatness of Old Crow.

    As I listened to this CD today for the first time it brought back memories of one of the BEST all time bands, The Grateful Dead. The CD reminds one of Jerry Garcia and Company ! Even the song titles of Cocaine Habit, Minglewood Blues, New Virginia Creper, and Don't Ride That Horse are so Dead Like. The opener, Down Home Girl starts the listener on the road that one does not want to end. OCMS you have one of the finest CDs out there.

    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeously Atmospheric Mature Alchemy
    I've had the new album "Hello Love" on repeat since I got it in the mail a few days ago. It's wonderfully atmospheric, lonesome and gorgeous.I think it stands up well to the previous albums, lending a bit more mature aspect to the alchemy. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their website hasn't been updated yet! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Zach Braff REALLY knows what rocks.
    The soundtrack CD to Zach Braff's "Garden State" pulls an impressive double coup: simultaneously it's one of the best movie soundtrack CDs of recent years and also one of the best rock music compilations. There isn't a single dud song on this disc, and several of them--such as "In the Waiting Line" (Zero 7), "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" (Colin Hay), "Blue Eyes" (Cary Brothers), "One of These Things First" (Nick Drake), "Such Great Heights" (Iron and Wine), and "Let Go" (Frou Frou) have become favorites of mine. Braff also does music listeners everywhere a vital service by reviving "The Only Living Boy in New York," probably the least known of the truly great Simon & Garfunkel songs. The soundtrack to "Garden State" is not only great listening on its own, but it succeeds spectacularly in doing what every soundtrack CD ought to do: it makes me want to see the movie again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest sound track ever
    So, my girlfriend and I saw this movie some time ago and fell in love instantly. Half way through the movie we knew that we had to buy this sound track. I mean seriously, Ive never heard one better. If this is your kind of music, you will love almost every song on this CD. There is only 1 we seem to agree not to like, but that should in no way stop you from getting all the other great tracks from this album. Now when we watch the movie, every song that comes on we have to jump up and say "that's my favorite" from the opening scene to the end credits. Listening to this sound track will truely make this movie one of your favorites, if it wasnt already. A+ in my book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fine collection!
    Selected by the actor/director and writer himself - Zach Bach, he did an impressive job of hand picking songs that embodied the emotional fine points of the movie. Not only do these tracks magnificently harmonize the movie, the songs complement each other seamlessly, and when put together, it created something fantastic as if the tracks should have never been apart to begin with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Knocks me out
    Eva Cassidy knocks me out!I heard about her on NPR a couple of years ago, and I finally got some of her music.Astounding the way she phrased these songs."Autumn Leaves" could make a statue cry."Somewhere Over the Rainbow", "Songbird" and "Fields of Gold" are equally amazing.Anyone who truly appreciates a styling genius will find her music rewarding.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great relaxing music!
    Her voice is gorgeous, just like a songbird!!!! So sad that she is now singing with the angels, before more of her works could be published.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I bought this CD because of Everwood and I'm glad I did...
    I heard Fields of Gold on the season finale of Everwood and thought whoever was singing it had a beautiful voice.When I hear a song I like I usually just have to find out who sings it.I did a little research and found that it was Eva Cassidy.I tried to download the song from ITunes but couldn't find it.Soooo, my next stop was Amazon.I searched for Eva Cassidy, found the CD, and bought it.I really like the whole CD.Her music is very soothing to me.My favorite songs are Wade in the Water, Over the Rainbow, and Fields of Gold.I ordered Time After Time and just received it several days ago.I've listened to some of the songs, but not the entire CD just yet.Eva Cassidy has a beautiful voice. ...

    Editorial Review

    The Weepies are a duo of songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. How can one not help but be delighted when two such similar sound names align with one another? Perfectly matched, the thirteen songs are quiet but insistent, with lyrics full of pop smarts and poetic depth. Narratives, whether fragmented or direct, empower most of the songs, giving even first-person vantage points a solid foundation. Talan does the bulk of the lead vocals, and her voice is a confident instrument, full of sly surprise and subtle phrasing. The pair's harmonies are thoughtful and evocative, oftentimes utilizing less than obvious intervals. In fact, the chorus vocals owe more to great radio pop of the sixties and seventies than to the various contemporary strains of folk and Americana. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly amazing
    I just bought it because I liked the cover art. That's not entirely true, I did hear one of their songs on the Paste sample CD.Anyway, this is smart music; smart lyrics, smart melodies and smart writing.It's very soft, subtle music (which is where I'm at musically right now).Most of the songs focus on the vocals which means that the listener will listen to the lyrics.I can't say enough about the song "The World Spins Madly On"Blew me away when I first heard it and still does.It sounds like a Fountains of Wayne not to mention he sounds a little bit like Adam Slessinger.Never before have I heard someone sing about the world moving on while I silently sit still and think about the opportunities I've passed up.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music
    This is the kind of CD that makes you smile when you listen to it.It's the kind that makes you want to sing along before you even know all of the words.The kind where you think every song on it might be your favorite.The songwriting is thoughtful, heartfelt and sweet (in the best possible sense of the word) while also exhibiting an intellectual edge.The lyrics are well-written without overshadowing the lovely harmonies that Steve and Deb have created.Her voice is evocative of Patty Griffin, but at the same time is unique and absolutely lovely.His voice is just at nuanced and gorgeous, and when they are singing together, it is a study in the beauty the human voice can produce.This is Americana at it's finest.I'm torn between wishing The Weepies all of the commercial success they so richly deserve and wanting to keep them my little (newly discovered...thanks, NPR!) secret.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Weepies
    Infectious and joyful, I literally feel better after listening to their CD.Able to communicate the sorrows faced in life within a validating presense."Painting by Chagal" is terribly romantic, captures the essence of what the experience of "love" is."Painting by Chagal" is part poetry, mythology and ordinary reality. ...

    We bought this album and You Are My Flower at the same time, and we love both albums.Elizabeth Mitchell has a wonderful voice, and there is an eclectic quality in song choices and arrangements to keep the listener interested.My kids love hearing the kids on the background of the songs, too.

    ...............HOW IN THE HECK DID THIS HIPPY MAKE IT OUT OF THE 60's ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? THERE IS NOT A WORSE MALE SINGER IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND !!!!!!!!!!!!!but then hippies and those wanting to be will always gush over his ''poetry''.stringing nonsensical sentences to boring folk music im sure HAS to be accompanied by a huge spliff !!!!!! ill give the guy credit for being the anti handsome,anti talented rock(???????) star.he is the extreme opposite of mtv.my god,if dylan was able to get paid for 1 song,everyone should run out and start singing.theres no way you will sound any where near as badly as bob.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite!
    I have listened to this CD for several years now, and I have never tired of it.I think the best song is Mississippi.There is something so mellow and soothing about this song, but I can't really put my finger on why.I think it could be the bluesy base that has such a rhythmic, continuous sound.
    4-0 out of 5 stars out of the slump
    this album was good from beginning to end.it silenced the critics that hadnt shut up in years,he made a really good album ending his slump of so soalbums.he segued fromthe hippie/folkster into the burned out genius we loved from the 60s only now it was the 90s.the album was an important bridge in his career and the most listenable album since nashville skyline.32 years earlier. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music
    Although O brother where art thou is not the best of Coen brother's films, this soundtrack is remarkable. "I' man of constant sorrow" is a logical hit, quite a catchy tune, but "Po Lazarus", "Big rock candy mountain" "I'll fly away" or "Down in the river to pray" give all sorts of bluegrass, country and gospel moods, all perfectly executed.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A surprise!
    I love this CD. Which is a shocker. I can't stand blue grass, don't even like country. But the quality of singing voices and the immpeckable instrumental execution makes me an admirer. I bought this cd because I watched the movie and Goerge Clooney's 'singing' performance made me laugh. I smile alot when listening to this cd. Very well done. ... Read more

    The CD is great, but these women are even better live. Their harmonies strike many responsive chords in me.Excellent lyrical songwriting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Knockout Album!
    Like many people, I first heard the Wailin Jennys on Prairie Home Companion, and I was immediately captivated.While somewhat disappointed by their first CD, I find Firecracker absolutely irresistable!I am amazed at the mature song writing abilities of all three young ladies.The harmonies, of course, are awesome, and they are all accomplished musicians.What more could you want in an album!I would be very surprised and disappointed if this wasn't a Grammy nominee.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet memories
    I went to my first Wailin Jennys concert last night. I hadn't heard them before--or thought I hadn't--but from the very first song I was transported back to gentle times in the late 60s and simple songs sung in beautiful harmony. A guitar, a banjo, harmonica, violin--these instruments are superb support for the thoughtful words and beautiful harmonies these three young women sing.
