She & Him: Classics
Prior to the release of "Classics" I was totally unfamiliar with the song stylings of the indie duet known as She & Him. The track listing sure looked promising so I decided that this was a disc that …
reviewed Sweet Bye and Bye. August 29, 2011
Sweet Bye and Bye
Sweet Bye and Bye, a 1946 musical that never made it to Broadway, was a disaster despite a pedigree that had music and lyrics written by Vernon Duke and Ogden Nash and a book by S. J. Perlman and Al Herschfeld. …
reviewed A Thousand Suns. July 10, 2011
Linkin Park: A Thousand Suns
Alright, first off I am not a music critic, so I don't know how to review a CD in technical terms. For that reason this will be short and sweet.      I have been a huge fan of …
reviewed Beethoven: Symphony No. 9. June 30, 2011
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9
Very few contemporary conductors present a fresh rendition of Beethoven's venerated warhorse, and Vänskä is one of them. This interpretation is taut and meticulous, performed at a brisk …
posted a Quick Tip about 2x4. June 30, 2011
If any other compilation of early Neubauten live performances captured the brutal thrill and primal frenzy of EN in the early '80s more ably than 2x4, I haven't heard it. ROIR's excellent …

Limp Bizkit Gold Cobra Album
   Limp Bizkit has promised a comeback with their latest album “Gold Cobra” that will turn the world of music on its ear and I have to say after several spins of this heavy, hard-hitting, …
posted a Quick Tip about The Transformed Man. June 25, 2011
The Transformed Man
Recorded in '68 to capitalize on Shatner's Trek fame and savaged by obtuse, humorless critics both then and now, this is the first great landmark of aural high camp. Halting and bombastic, The …
reviewed Shakespeare. June 07, 2011
No superior Anglophone stand-up is known to me. Jeselnik's insouciant, self-aggrandizing deportment is impeccably calculated, his misdirecting exposition and depraved one-liners exceptionally crafted. …

Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3; Ravel: Piano Concerto, Gaspard de la nuit
It's criminal that Deutsche Grammophon waited almost thirty years to reissue these excellent recordings as a Compact Disc edition. Never mind the middling late Karajan discs or all this overwrought …

Elton John and Leon Russell: The Union
During one of the final episodes of AMC's spectacular (though regrettably short-lived) legend-on-legend music interrogatory - Spectacle with Elvis Costello - Elton John spoke passionately of his life-long …

Abbey Road
The thing about Beatles albums is that so many of them are essential that none of them can really stand out in the overall Beatles discography as THE essential Beatles album. None of them really stand …
reviewed Michael Jackson: Michael. December 06, 2010
posted in Music Matters
To be perfectly honest, I’ve never been that much of a Michael Jackson fan … or, at least, it’s safe to say that I think his early solo stuff (up through BAD) was exceptional, but I …

black eyed peas the beginning
   A couple of weeks ago I read, out of the blue, that The Black Eyed Peas had a new album coming out. I was surprised but excited because I felt The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies) was probably …

Bryan Adams: Bare Bones
Pretty awesome CD. I'm tinkering with a full review.
reviewed The Sun Comes Out World Tour. November 09, 2010
The Sun Comes Out World Tour
It's pretty hard not to like Shakira, with her worldy music songs and hip shaking. Great voice, obviously amazing dance skills. But I was never over the top, in love, as I was with other female pop …

One of the Boys
I held off on buying this CD too early because -- to be perfectly honest -- the public fascination with that whole "I Kissed A Girl" song really annoyed me even though the song didn't. I …

Gene Simmons Solo
While most KISS fans (including myself) believe that the best album to be born from the 1978 KISS solo efforts was the Ace Frehley album, I have to say that Gene Simmons' project deserves …

Rod Stewart: Fly Me To The Moon The Great American Songbook Volume V
Oh, Rod Stewart, what's happened to you? I miss the Rod Stewart of yesteryear - the rocker, party-animal and bad boy who gave us such hits as "Hot Legs", "Rhythm of my Heart", …

Batman Returns Original Soundtrack
Not quite as stirring as the original Elfman music from the first Batman, but Siouxie and the Banshees addition to the album is a great piece.

Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train
This song is a shining example of what Randy Rhoads could do with a guitar!
reviewed A Thousand Suns. September 12, 2010
Linkin Park: A Thousand Suns
In an effort to move even further away from original fans, Linkin Park have released (09/14/2010) A Thousand Suns. On first listen I was appalled by the huge difference between original Linkin Park (Hybrid …

The Suburbs (Arcade Fire album)
If you told me a new release was a concept album about suburbia, I'd approach it with a mixture of skepticism and curiosity. If you told me it was a sixteen song c.d. with this theme, my preconceptions …

Frank Sinatra: Songs For Swingin' Lovers
What can anyone possibly add to the Sinatra conversation? For most men, living one of his lives would have been sufficient. But for "The Chairman," the Greatest Entertainer of the 20th Century, …
