Stone Sour – House of Gold & Bones Pt. 2

4/5 Since 2002, Stone Sour have grown into one of the premiere bands in alternative metal. Their biggest and most ambitious undertaking has come over the last year with the double concept album House of Gold & Bones parts 1 and 2. The albums tell a tale of someone who is at the crossroads of life. Lead singer Corey Taylor's 'House' shelter the emotions of facing choice amidst pain and the inner battles ...

Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience

4/5 With the large amount of time following 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, it seemed as if Timberlake did not have any more to say musically. Then, as if out of nowhere, a huge promo campaign began with the release of a new single and details of the forthcoming The 20/20 Experience. Timberlake's third solo album has now become one of the fastest selling albums in the last several years while defying the expec ...

The Strokes – Comedown Machine

3/5 Comedown Machine definitely shows the poppier side of the Strokes that can be downright fun. The album does trail off from previous releases, but this record also has the widest range of any strokes record and for the most part successfully delivers new creativity through the big 1980's influence to the album. The album has some catchy tunes in 50/50 and Welcome to Japan, but the album doesn't feel comp ...

Jaida Dreyer: I am Jaida Dreyer

4/5 Ontario born country singer, Jaida Dreyer’s debut album I am Jaida Dreyer is a refreshing collection of 10 songs written or co-written by Dreyer. I was pleasantly surprised when her songs started to play, knowing immediately that her voice and lyrics will set her apart from other Country singers. While the country songs played over my speakers, I was not disappointed when the songs started or ended. Eac ...

CD REVIEW: Dido – Girl Who Got Away

3/5 British songbird Dido is back with Girl Who Got Away, her fourth studio album, and has left a bit to be desired. After a few spins I am starting to "get it" more, but her previous albums No Angel and Life For Rent still seem much superior. While the album is just a partial retreat from the Dido we have grown to love, it is not entirely satisfying. The good news is that Dido has returned to electronica, ...

Josh Groban – All That Echoes

4/5 The baritone singer Josh Groban starts a new tour, based on his newly released album All That Echoes. This LP is produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Dave Matthews Band) and contains 12 tracks, where 5 of them are covers. The first single Brave shows what Josh Groban is up to with All That Echoes. His classical trained voice combined with an overwhelming orchestral sound, poppy melodies and fully soundin ...

Destiny’s Child – Love Songs

2/5 Destiny's Child are back. But who expected a reunion and a brand new album of the band will be disappointed. The longplayer is a compilation of the loveliest jams from the former released albums between 1998 and 2004. The only new song on the LP is called Nuclear and the only live performance of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will probably be just the one at the XLVII Super Bowl. H ...

3/5 The singer/songwriter Carrie Rodriguez releases with Give Me All You Got her fifth full-length studio album full of pop, folk and traditional music. The eleven songs on the LP are telling stories about “intense emotions, from heartache to budding new love, from betrayal to resigned acceptance, and finally to the sheer joy of simply being alive”, she says. And being alive also concludes sometimes to have ...

Hollywood Undead – Notes From The Underground

3/5 On their website Hollywood Undead describe their second LP release as a mixture of “volatile and vibrant hip hop swagger, a magnificient metallic crunch, and a danceable industrial soul,” shortly described as heavy pop. Those different styles are combined in 11 tracks on their new record Notes From The Underground. While the opener Dead Bite starts quite coherent, full of hard guitar riffs, heavy sounds ...

Chipmunks Christmas

5/5 I grew up listening to and loving the Chipmunks albums. Chipmunks Christmas is a great addition to the loveable Chipmunks collection, full of all your favorite Christmas carols such as It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth), Frosty the Snowman and a few new ones I didn't recognize such as Ho Ho Ho and Here Comes Christmas. Can any of us forget our c ...
