3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I really wanted to like this album, but it's simply not one of Alejandro's better efforts.For me, it's much too similar to his old Buick MacKane days, and lacks the simplicity, richness, and emotion that make Alejandro so unique.
4-0 out of 5 stars Why Don't I Love This CD?
There is something about this CD that keeps me from raving about it. On the surface it is great. I listened to it regularly for about a week, and it still gets heavy rotation in my player. All the parts are in place...the lyrics, the passion, the emotion, the chamber music-like quality of the music. So what's the problem?
4-0 out of 5 stars Great
Escovedo has been a musician and songwriter who has been very prolific. I thought he died a few years ago, but I guess not. He has hooked up with John Cale on this record. Most of his music is mellow rock with county and folk references. Escovedo has written most of the songs here, with a little help. The band is very large. Even Cale helps out on a few tunes. "Notes On Air" is a brilliant song. It's good to see this class act back in business. ... Read more

i bought the s cd with no expectations in any way shape or form. it was recomended to me by amazon.com and i looked at the price, decided it was cheep and i could affordit and orderd it the same day. i must admit i'm not a big led zeppilin fan, nor have i herd and of robert plants solo work. i did love this album, it's fathful to the originals. my only comeplaint is that this album is much to short and that the Honeydrippers only made one album. if i may i would like to recomend Brian Setzer's Guitar Slinger album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Flashback,......waaaay back
Hey, anything with Robert Plant, prior to 2000, is gonna rock. What else is there to say?Well for starters, this album is tooooo short. Its over before it begins, that's not to say it ain't good. The album needs at least 3 more songs .Remaining loyal to 50's an early 60's style, the tunes are quick, catchy and short.
5-0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Page and Robert Plant - together again.
Any Led Zeppelin fanatic like myself knows that, for all the bands heaviness, Zep never strayed far from the folk and ol' rhythmn & blues that originally inspired them.Here is some evidence of that in the form of five covers recorded by The Honeydrippers.Five years after the death of John Bonham, Page and Plant reunited for half an albums worth of big-band with a swing-twist sounding material.Some of the other prominent musicians here include Brian Setzer, Jeff Beck, and Nile Rogers.So how did they do?

5-0 out of 5 stars Alternative country comes alive...
A friend of mine actually gave me a copy of No Depression on tape shortly after this release came out and told me I had to check this new band out. For some reason it sat at the bottom of my tape collection for well over a year. I finally rediscovered the tape one day and realized it was time to check out the band with the unique name. Man, had I missed out on some seriously good music! There is a nice mix of punk and country on many of the songs on this cd. Songs such as "Graveyard Shift" and "Factory Belt" are quick paced, high-flying country/punk tunes but the song that blew me away (and still does to this day) is the old school country drinking song "Whiskey Bottle". Everytime I hear this song it just sends shivers up my spine as you can feel the pain and heartache in Jay Farrar's voice. Some great bonus tracks on the remastered version including a great version of Gram Parson's "Sin City" and an informative booklet just add to the original beauty of this release. Tupelo move forward into a more traditional country sound after this cd but "No Depression" is a groundbreaking effort.
5-0 out of 5 stars Oh My, yes indeed!
Now this, THIS is my kind of music. Punk meets Country, with Rock sprinkled all over for good measure! From the opening note of "Graveyard Shift" to the close of "Blues Die Hard, there's 19 tracks of pure great music to be had here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Seminal!!!
This is THE album by THE band that created a whole new genre in American Underground music.It would take five years for bands like Uncle Tupelo to appear in every major city in the US, but they eventually did.It is a classic.An essential album for any music lover.

Editorial Review

Brian Setzer’s Dig That Crazy Christmas is proof that behind every rockabilly hepcat is a big band leader. Mixing originals with seasonal faves, Setzer and his orchestra manage to swing, rock, roll and otherwise nail such gems as "Dig That Crazy Santa Claus," "Zat You Santa Claus" (popularized by Louis Armstrong at Christmas long past) and "Cool Yule." He even tackles an instrumental arrangement of "My Favorite Things" that allows him to show off his guitar chops to great effect. Even the unexpected "Angels We Have Heard on High"--played at a galloping tempo, with an angelic chorus and loads of shiny brass--fits into Setzer’s big bad sack. His original tunes (and seasonal rewrite of "in the Mood" called "Getting’ in the Mood for Christmas") such as "Santa Arrives in A Hot Rod" and "Hey Santa’ will be right at home, or in the cocktail lounge, or that New Year’s Eve Party that you will have trouble remembering. Recommended fun. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Do Ya Got Da Christams Creepers?
The Brian Setzer Orchestra has done it again. The big band orchestra has made one of the ulitmate Christmas records, and DIG THAT CRAZY CHRISTMAS needs to be part of any Christmas and music collection. Professional guitarist and singer Brian Setzer, along with his professional big band puched out yet another great piece of work. These cats can swing like no other musicians out there, and they definately know the swing genre on a professional level. Setzer adds flare to this musical art with his own amzing guitar licks of classical, jazz, and rockabily. The horns and woodwinds provide the big band with most of the pieces' melodies, but Brian and his female singers perform beautiful musical lines as well. The bass player is one cool cat, for he keeps the melody and harmony moving as he and Setzer make quick and perfect transitions of passing chords all over their bass and guitar necks. The songs off this swing record are old and new hits arranged to Setzer's unique take on the swing genre. It gives all tracks just a fun and up beat feel to their sound and makes me wonder why there aren't any Mainstream bands performing this musical art. Definately pick up DIG THAT CRAZY CHRISTMAS for the next holiday season or of course, for those out there who also celebrate Christmas In July.

Editorial Review

Todd Snider really knows how to work a room. As a storytelling troubadour for the slacker set, he takes inspiration from the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker (as he explains in one of this solo concert album's deadpan introductions) and Robert Earl Keen and applies it to a selection of shaggy-dog stories, talking blues, and slices-of-life gone askew.One of his earliest signature tunes, "Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," has now outlived grunge by too long, but the more recent "Waco Moon," inspired by the death of guitartist Eddy Shaver, shows that Snider's songwriting is good for a whole lot more than laughs. Some of his most engaging songs such as "Beer Run" seem to have practically written themselves, while others such as "Tension" and "Statistician's Blues" sound like songs that were just waiting to be written. It's an integral part of Snider's engaging appeal that he makes it all seem so effortless. As with Keen, the challenge for Snider is balancing the easy laughs with his more serious progression as a songwriter. Read more

Editorial Review

The self-titled debut album from Texas trio Los Lonely Boys tries--and mostly succeeds--in being everything to everyone. Garza brothers Henry, Jojo, and Ringo try their hand at classic-rock grooves, Tex-Mex, bilingual pop, and traditional harmonies with deliciously ear-pleasing results. The album is perfectly suited to Top 40, Spanish and adult-contemporary radio--all at the same time. At times tracks such as "Onda" and "Dime Mi Amor" recall 1970s-era Santana, but the Boys are at their best on "Heaven," the feel-good first single, and "La Contestacion," a yearning ballad matched by pleading instrumentation. As a bonus, this Read more

Very intertaining. I bought it for the Heaven track, but enjoyed the whole thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
This CD was the surprise of the last decade. I caught only a few bars of "I Walk the Line," on a television commercial. I thought it was a fresh sound so I bought the CD. Wow! No, I mean wow-wow-wow. This band is tight like only brothers could be. There is no awkward phrasing or uncomfortable moments that are always apparent between rock stars. They are in and out of each other's personal space without so much as a deep breath. They are natural together. Their harmony is three voices from one, and one voice from three. Each brother is an outstanding musician in his own right.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece.
Los Lonely Boys provide a glimmer of hope with their debut album, a glimmer of hope that modern music is not all that bad and even today great bands can still appear and knock your senses of course to somewhere else where everything is dominated by pure emotion. "Los Lonely Boys" is a masterful mix of flavors and notes, it is both a throwback to the 70's grooves bands like Santana perfected and a jolt into the future for what can be called Chicano rock. The album is filled with delicious winks at Richie Valens, Johnny Cash, Santana and many, many others. One of the pleasing things you realize while listening to this album is that this is a band that knows and has studied the classics, bands like Los Lonely Boys and Jet have recently come under fire because they sound a lot like their legendary heroes, I still do understand what the problem is. People complain that a lot of new rock sounds too simple, distorted and dumb, and then they complain that other new bands soo what? Too good? "Los Lonely Boys" is a beautiful album filled with wonderous melodies, consider "Heaven," a wonderful song of hope and redemption with indeed heavenly guitar licks, a dreamy atmosphere and uplifting spirit. "Crazy Dreams" is pure classic rock with an almost blues edge running through while "Se�orita" has that wicked, feverish vibe Santana created in songs like "Black Magic Woman" where the main character just had to fall in love with some witchy babe who sounds like she walked out of hell. "Hollywood" is cool and breezy while "More Than Love" doesn't even belong in this era, this is a stylish, excellent ballad that would do Richie Valens justice. It is no wonder that Los Lonely Boys have been opening for Carlos Santana, I have already mentioned the name a few times, in the album the influence is most present in "Onda," a scorching jammer that exhilarates and leaves you admiring just how well the Garza brothers can play. For those who do not already own the album this new Special Edition is THE ONE to get. The extra material is not added in vain. The Garza brothers come from Texas and so it is no surprise that they tip their hats to the great Johnny Cash with a roaring cover of "I Walk The Line" where the guitar and vocals fly in exhilarating blues/country ecstacy and the Spanish version of "Heaven" is just as moving as the original. The extra DVD has the band's music videos and some interesting acoustic renditions where the band members share fascinating stories about the birth of each tune. "Los Lonely Boys" is a powerhouse debut, a masterpiece of raw rock n' roll and feeling. If like MUSIC, go check it out. ... Read more

Editorial Review

On this 1986 debut, Steve Earle burst on the scene as a fully formed songwriting master, synthesizing effortlessly the finest parts of country-folk troubadours like Townes Van Zandt and the anthemic, working-class rock of Bruce Springsteen. "Someday," a country-rock masterpiece about a kid stuck pumping gas in a dead-end town, remains the perfect realization of this style, and with the exception of the slight and silly "Little Rock 'N' Roller," most everything else here (especially "Hillbilly Highway" and the heartbreaking ballad "My Old Friend the Blues") comes awfully close. The 2002 reissue, overseen by Earle and original producer Tony Brown, offers fresh remastering, new liner notes by Earle, and a bonus live version of Springsteen's "State Trooper." Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Five star fabulous!!
Dare I say it, this is THE BEST country album that was recorded in the eighties. So naturally, it was largely ignored by the music row jugheads in Nashville forcing our hero to go into the realm of rock music in order to have his talent appreciated.The first six songs on this release are perfect in every way! Anyone who likes vintage Dwight Yoakam, the folkier side of Springsteen or the seventies era of Waylon Jennings should own this!! The title track is marvelous and just a blast to listen to, "Goodbye Is All We Got Left To Say" is one of the best written songs ever and "Hillbilly Highway" will get stuck in your head for days!! Then as if this trio wasn't good enough, then along comes "Gettin' Tough" to knock you upside the head followed by a couple songs later by "Someday" known as the greatest song Springsteen NEVER wrote! If this album isn't a five star, then I don't know what is!! Buy it, love it, live it!! It's that good!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Much Improved Reissue
This is a great album that blurred whatever distinction existed between country and rock, and this guy writes really good country lyrics that aren't the least bit corny or stupid. This and the next album he released, Exit 0, are his best - and in my opinion - two of the finest country albums ever made. There was a big problem though; They were recorded digitally on either very bad equipment, or by someone who was clueless (or both), and the result was very harsh with hardly any bass. Steve got this satisfactorily fixed on Guitar Town by converting the digital tape to analog, and then to DSD, and making the nesessary sonic adjustments before down-converting to 16 bit for the cd. The result is much improved over the original CD, making this great performance more enjoyable.

I cannot remember how I happened to be looking at Chris Isaak's music, but I am so happy I did.He was on a TV special some time ago, and I liked and remembered him.As I looked over his albums and listened to some songs, BAJA SESSIONS stood out as something I would like.
4-0 out of 5 stars one of my top ten favorite pop music albums
I once read in a review of a Creedence album that their music is "about as contrived as the weather."That's a good take on Isaac's Baja Sessions album.These songs are so honest, unpretensious, expressive, and well-performed that they seem to be something Isaak must have discovered, rather than written and recorded himself.As many other reviewers have observed here, he has one of the best voices in the history of popular music (personally, I think it's THE best).And I love the sense of place, the sense of location, the blend of southern Californian and Mexican cultures here.As with the blues and the Mississippi delta, or bluegrass with Kentucky and Apallachia, it's art that is expressive not just of the artist but of his culture as well, of the people around him rather than only of him, that is really worth something.The original material here is as good as the covers, which are done so well they seem as though Isaak might as well have written them, too.

Some k.d. lang fans argue that the Alberta-born crooner released her best work during the first 10 years of her career. Dressed in layers of thrift store finery, with stage moves that recalled the Tasmanian Devil, lang's quirky 'cow-punk' style made an unforgettable first impression. Sassy antics aside, her appeal was cross-generational, blowing audiences away night after night with an incredible voice and commanding presence. Lang's new release Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars "BIG BEANS! Oh, luscious greens!"
Since the release of her wildly successful INGENUE in 1989, k. d. lang has largely moved away from the kind of uptempo rockabilly-tinged country twang that marked her early albums, and for many lang fans (such as myself) this has been a tremedous shame. As pleasant as her crooning has been in the last 15+ years, there's nothing to get the heart going faster than those early albums. Now, at last, as her first compilation, lang has reissued these great songs from her early days in collaboration with her gifted longtime collaborator Ben Mink: they've greatly cleaned up the reverberation from many of the reocrdings so you hear them much differently than in the past. And the selection is terrific: though lang re-releases here some of her more beautiful early ballads (including "Pine and Stew" and my favorite of all her songs, "Diet of Strange Places," and songs from ABSOLUTE TORCH AND TWANG that showed the torchy direction her music would take in future albums, like "Pulling Back the Reins"), most of the songs are her quick tempoed dance numbers from the days when she'd spin around on stage like a dervish: "Pay Dirt," "Tune into My Wave," "It's Me," "Big, Big Love," and so on. These songs are wickedly fun to listen to, and remind us that lang used to have an absolutely killer sense of humor.

The problem with these 2 disc multi-artist concerts is that they're often bloated with lesser performers and lesser performances.Here, not so, KK says at the beginning of the concert that "backstage we have assembled one of the greatest group of perfoming artists ever" or something like that, and it's no exaggeration.George Harrison, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Wonder and on and on...

Not bad.The definite highlight is "My Back Pages" where Harrison, Clapton, Dylan, Neil Young, McGuinn, and Petty all take a verse.McGuinn sounds even better on "Mr Tamborine Man" and overall a great effort by all the artist covering some well known and not so well know Dylan songs. ... Read more

I own everything Chris Isaak has ever put out there to purchase and have seen him many times in concert.Without cable, I never saw the videos for his songs (except for Wicked Games).What a pleasant surprise.Not only is his voice like velvet, watching him makes it twice as pleasurable.He is as good on video as he is in person, and he is fabulous in person.If you get a chance, it is worth the trip and/or money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Recordings plus videos: Isaak excels at both!
An intoxicating mix of Elvis Presley's early rockabilly and Roy Orbison's haunted crooning, Chris Isaak has maintained a sizable following over 21 years and nine albums despite having only one real pop hit, "Wicked Game." While all of his albums are inconsistent, they each contain plenty of highlights, making this 18-track Best Of long overdue.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very COOL
In the old tradition of Cash, Orbison or even Elvis, Isaak is a name that we can easily put side by side with those American kings.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great soundtrack with noticable omissions
La Bamba (1987.) The soundtrack to the Ritchie Valens biopic of the same name.
2-0 out of 5 stars OLDE REVIEW.La Bamba
Sound track other than the primary cut, LaBamba .Did not seem the same as the movie.Would not recommened the sound track.Was purchased as a gift.

4-0 out of 5 stars Yo no soy marinero.
This is a solid soundtrack.Los Lobos do a good job of duplicating Ritchie Valens' old songs (although there was no accordion on the original versions).The other cover songs, by Howard Huntsberry, Marshall Crenshaw and Brian Setzer, are also well done.Bo Diddley does a great remake of his classic "Who Do You Love".The last two songs by Los Lobos are not Ritchie Valens songs, but they are okay.If you liked the movie, you will probably like the soundtrack, too. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the top Five CD's I own, and I have ALOT.
This is GREAT disc.There are only a couple of songs that aren't really really good.Oddly, 'Metal and Steel' is the song that was released on the radio in my market and is one of my least favorites.'Bullets' is a live show favorite that he's covered many ways.'2002' is maybe his best and most intimate ballad.'Big blue Sea' predates all the Jack Johnson surfer dude vibe.'The world exploded into Love", "Moon Song", and "Madeline" are really beautiful melodies.And all this from the guy who brought you 'Hangin' out with the horney girls" etc.There are other songs in his wide and prolific repetior that I like as much or more, but this is his high water mark so far and the best solo disc to start with if you don't own any yet.And if that's the case, you need to take corrective action and go git yourself some right away.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Travel With This CD
I have had Lonelyland since the year it came out. I heard Bullets on streaming radio and was driven to find more by Bob. I couldn't so I bought the cd the same day.I fell in love with it immediately. It's a perfect blend of good singing (you can feel his voice) and great music. It is one of my favorites and it (well a copy of it) travels everywhere I do.The lyrics can stand alone as poetry on almost all the songs.
5-0 out of 5 stars WITH A BULLET
This is the real thing.Bob's a true talent.He's got the chops on guitar as well as voice.And quite the wordsmith a la Elvis Costello, Mike Doughty or Steve Earle.AND he can rap as well!A very well rounded, seasoned artist without the MTV crap that goes along with it, thank God!This CD is quite an accomplishment, with not a bad song in the bunch.My faves are Bullet, Big Blue Sea, Jingy, Round & Round, the amazing Under My Skin..Hell, the whole thing!!See this guy live as well to get what the big deal is about.His band kicks a** as well. Dangerous!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

After cranking out albums on a variety of labels since their 1978 founding, the Radiators are still best known within their home base of Louisiana. Yearly headlining gigs at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival notwithstanding, the band--who have yet to lose a member in nearly three decades--haven't managed to crack either the fertile jam market or the blues rock one. That's because most of their recordings have failed to combine the restless funk, blues, R&B, and rock influences into memorable original songs or coherent albums. That problem is not solved on this collection, the band's first post-Katrina album (first in five years, actually)--but there remains plenty to enjoy, even if lead singer Ed Volker's dusky voice isn't distinctive enough to propel this typically eclectic set of ballads and rockers, despite the band's muscular performance. Good-time party rockers such as "Rollercoaster," the jaunty "Good Things," and the opening, soulful "Ace in the Hole" join the Neil Young-inspired "Like a Hurricane" bluster of "Rub It In," the mid-tempo, radio-ready "Lost Radio," and the bar-blues-rocking "The Man Who Lost His Head." The band is difficult to pigeonhole, but a greasy Crescent City vibe covers each track. Like most Radiators studio releases, the rootsy songs are well played but don't pack a robust enough punch. A jolt of live juice to shake the dust off and nail a groove, as they typically do in concert, would work wonders. As difficult to dislike as it is to get excited about, the well-intentioned Read more

Editorial Review

After their hit remake of "La Bamba," Los Lobos could easily have settled into the lazy, provincial groove of hometown heroes. But with producer Mitchell Froom's encouragement, the pride of East L.A. exploded all conventions on their one true masterwork. Their Latin roots are obvious, and so is their encyclopedic knowledge of American blues, rock, and soul. But they don't stop there, tossing South African mbaqanga into the mix of "Wake Up Delores," and fearlessly experimenting every step along the way. The more you listen, the more you marvel that the band fit so many weird, wonderful sounds into songs with deep roots in the past but perfectly suited for the future. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS ONE!
Its hard to say that any album could be the quintessential Los Lobos Album. They have so many different aspects and nuances, it would be impossible to capture them in one album. Kiko comes pretty close to capturing the Lobos' essence though. Songs like Dream In Blue, Angels With Dirty Faces, & Peace showcase the basic Los Lobos "East LA Roots Rock" sound. One of my favorites, Saint Behind The Glass, is a nod to traditional Mexican Music while still maintaining approachability to the non-Latino listener. Rio de Tenampa showcases the band's ability to seamlessly meld Mexican and Country sounds together in one unique package. Every song on here is written and played with great depth and feeling, but none more than the melancholy When The Circus Comes, which I find so emotionally stirring. While this CD has a certain Hispanic flavor, it is a great introductory album to a band that appeals to lovers of all different genres of music including, Latin, Country, Blues, Rock and more!

5-0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos' Sgt. Peppers
I've got a half dozen of these guys' albums, most of which are great in their own right, but this is hands down, their absolute best.It got all kinds of accolades when it came out back in 1992.Sometimes, critics go goo-goo-ga-ga over some record, and later you wonder why. That's not the case here.This album has stood the test of time.
5-0 out of 5 stars Kiko
We heard a song - Kiko and the Lavendar Moon - from this CD on the radio.As soon as I got home, I ordered the CD.It was good as expected.I have a friend who is an avid Lobos fan.I want to add myself to that list now. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Todd Snider - That Was Me
Todd Snider is a great folky singer/songwriter hippie who sounds like he'd have been perfect for the 1960's.He's definitely unique in today's music scene.He writes really good songs and this CD gives a nice brief overview of some of his best songs over the 5 years.And at a great price too!
4-0 out of 5 stars Just a clarification...
Another reviewer complained that this wasn't really "the best of" Todd Snider's work, since it doesn't include songs such as "Vinyl Records" and "Statistician's Blues," et al.I agree that those are great songs, but they were released on John Prine's independently owned Oh Boy! label, not on the MCA-Universal mega-conglomerate, which is the company that put out this particular collection. Yeah, it would be great to have all of Snider's "best" work on one collection, but I for one am rather glad that Universal doesn't own Oh Boy! so that that is not possible... But if you want to check out Snider's early work, from the albums he put out in the mid-to-late 1990s, this is a fine single-CD option.

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT the very best of collection
If you are like me, any artist that you really really love, chances are you have every cd/album that this artist ever realeased. And say 10 years or so down the road, this artist comes out with a "Best of" or "greatest hits" cd. You are curious to see what selections were put on it, and except for the one or two cover songs, or maybe a NEW song,(they do that in the hopes of thatbig fan will buy it for that one or two songs he/she may not have)you say to yourself "THAT IS NOT THE BEST OF" ! Well, when I saw Todd's selections on his "BEST OF CD", I was disapointed. Just to name a few songs that were left off are as follows: "I believe"-"broke"-"vinyl records"-"beer run"-"alot more"-"new connection"-"statistician's blues"- and one that I found online was a song he did called "Plastic girl". If you can find that one or any of the above mentioned songs you will see what I mean. If you like todd's music, don't skimp on this guy. Get all his cd's, you won't ever regret it. Thanks for listening. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Live is the best
This is really a DVD with a bonus CD.If you have never seen Paul in concert this is a must have set, if you have seen him you will want to add this to your collection.This was recorded in Atlanta and I found the DVD is to be a good substitute for being there.I have been enjoying Paul's work for a while now and this is the best offering of his yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Special Performer
Paul Thorn is a man of many hats; a talented musician, singer, songwriter, stand-up comic & "inspirational leader" (oh, and a former boxer). Thorn and his talented band cruise through a fun set of bluesy rock, interjected by his good-spirited, often self-deprecating humor. Guitarist Bill Hinds proves equally adept at blistering blues-rock ("Heart With 4 Wheel Drive"), feather-light slide guitar a la Lee Roy Parnell ("Every Little Bit Hurts") and everything in between. Keyboardist Michael "Dr. Love" Graham adds a somber organ to the latter tune, & propels the energetic stomper "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand" with his rock'n'roll piano. The band lays down a wickedly funky groove on the deliriously silly "Ain't Love Strange", while the bouncy "Lover's Vacation" coasts along with carefree abandon.

4-0 out of 5 stars Come On, This Is NOT exactly Holy Writ
I was never a huge Pink Floyd fan--which is not to say I didn't like their music or respect their talent. But, I dunno, maybe it was just ALL those annoying sound effects and voiceovers. Even good music can seem a little gimmicky when tarted up with too much extraneous noise. Yeah, I admit I liked the ringing cash registers drawer in "Money," but so much of the other stuff was, well, just a drag.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Live album besides Is there anybody out there?
I rented this concert on VHS one day. I love it.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Miltary Orchestra Of The Soviet Army!!
Although many people gave this live concert a low rating due to Roger Waters' choice of substitute singers/musicians for some of the songs from the original Wall recording, after seeing it on video for the first time, it became easier to listen to the recording alone afterward.

Just like some classes, it sounds interesting and intriguing, but once you sign up it's not what you expected.So you suffer though the semester, endlessly kicking yourself for enrolling in a class that sounded good, but wasn't what you thought it would be.
4-0 out of 5 stars A rockin' tribute
Rockabilly Riot, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Sun Records is a fantastic homage to some of the best American music ever recorded.Setzer's musicianship is top-notch; more proof that he's probably the best rockabilly (and swing) guitarist to ever live.His voice is golden, sounding much better than on some of his recent recordings of original material.
