The Best Of David Bowie 1980/1987:

Excerpt from Amazon reviewer Phil

Track for track you’re not going to find a better summary of Bowie’s flawed 1980s. This compilation convincingly refutes those who say that Bowie did nothing of value during those years. That’s not to say it’s a checklist of every charting single; this wisely leaves the embarrassing duet with Mick Jagger on “Dancing in the Streets” on the cutting room floor. That’s on a couple other packages anyway. Oh, as a fan I’d argue for the duet with Iggy Pop on “Dancing with the Big Boys” which would render the “Tonight” album unnecessary, and a couple other substitutions, but for the casual buyer this is stone cold perfect.

Eminem Presents The Re-Up by Eminem

Review from Amazon.co.uk

What began life as an informal street mix-tape project to help launch fledgling Shady Records artists (Stat Quo, Ca$his, Bobby Creekwater, Obie Trice, and producer The Alchemist) has now become an official release. Flowing fairly randomly from track to track, the project, perhaps surprisingly for such a high profile outing, retains its original mixtape vibe. It’s a thuggish and sluggish affair, led by Alchemist’s somber, strong-arm beats (with additional production from Dr. Dre amd Kon Artis), and inhabited by a varied range of voices, from the Shady Records artists previously mentioned to Eminem himself (on half a dozen tracks), and appearances from 50 Cent, the recently slain Proof, and others from the G Unit crew. With so many cuts at the same tempo and with the same moody aura, it can all start to wear a little in places. Indeed, with such a wealth of up and coming talent and established personnel at work, there really ought to be more stand-outs. As it is, we get perhaps six killers (including Eminem-led cuts, “The Re-Up” and “Jimmy Crack Corn”), a disproportionate amount of fillers, and a mixtape/album that–just about–leaves a vaguely positive impression. –Paul Sullivan

Little Bit Of Life by Craig Morgan

Little Bit Of Life by Craig Morgan:

From Amazon.com

Since Craig Morgan continues to belabor the fact that he’s just a regular guy, it should come as no surprise that his fourth album is nothing special. Morgan’s voice is pretty ordinary, and the material leaves no country cliché unturned. If he is what he sings, Morgan is a small-town, tractor-driving, church-going, beer-drinking (“now and then”), family-loving, flag-waving, one-woman Southern man. He is, as he sings in “I Am,” “just like you, baseball, and apple pie.” He’s also a guy whose conception of “Sweet Old Fashion Goodness” doesn’t preclude an occasional “little bit of yeehaw in the hay,” as he sings in the title track. Ballads bring out the best in Morgan, but he has to learn to distinguish between the disarmingly tender (“Tough”) and the hokey (“The Ballad of Mr. Jenkins”). –Don McLeese

Slow Moving Dog by Eric Skye

Slow Moving Dog by Eric Skye:

Excerpt from Amazon reviewer R. Kopald “latch key kid”

Like jazz? You’ll love this. Like guitar? You’ll love this. Like funk? You’ll love this. Like “roots music”? You’ll love this..Hell, if you like ANY music, it’s a relatively safe bet you’ll like this.

Skye and his incredibly sympathetic and extremely talented cohorts have created somewhat of an instant classic with this release. I will readily admit a weakness for the three piece format,and these guys carry that torch in proud Olympic fashion. I don’t know what else to say other than that this is a very well executed recording.

Someone In Control (CD Only) (Ltd. Edition) by Trapt

Album Review:

The hard-rockin’ Northern California band’s much-anticipated follow-up, Someone In Control, co-produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Pearl Jam, Good Charlotte) and led by the track “Stand Up,” expands on the strong sense of melody, soul-searching lyrics and archetypal hooks that separate Trapt from its Modern Rock peers. Fans are standing up for Trapt.

Greatest Hits by Martina McBride

List Price: $10.99 USD

Greatest Hits by Martina McBride:

From Amazon.com

In the abstract, there are two Martina McBrides heard in this ample collection, which features 15 hits from the Kansas-born singer’s studio albums, along with four additional inspired cuts. At one extreme there’s the demure cover-girl-pretty warbler who serves up fervent and endearing love pledges like “Wild Angels,” “Safe in the Arms of Love,” and “I Love You.” Then there’s the mature, poised, socially conscious mother of two who grapples with darker topics like poverty and inequality (“Love’s the Only House”) and child and spousal abuse (the wrathful “Independence Day” and the ineffably sad “Concrete Angel”). There are certainly impressive samples of both Martinas on this anthology. On other cuts–like the bluesy, naughty new track “When God-Fearin’ Women Get the Blues” and the angry “Life #9”–the forces of light and darkness, anger and felicity, commingle in a manner that’s no less intriguing and provocative. –Bob Allen

The Trinity by Sean Paul:

Amazon.com
Just try to sit still during the first few tracks on dancehall-reggae star Sean Paul’s third album, The Trinity. It’s a nearly impossible feat, and you’re in need of a serious scolding if tracks “Head in the Zone,” “We Be Burnin’,” “Send It On” and “Ever Blazin” don’t make your toes tingle. Paul introduced a worldwide audience to the dancehall scene via his explosive 2002 album, Dutty Rock, and he scored bigger pop creds via bouncy duets with Beyonce and Sasha. The Trinity refines Paul’s pop sheen while still staying true to his Jamaican roots. Beats squish and slide seductively, tempered by staccato rhythms and Paul’s self-assured, sexy delivery. Things take a serious turn halfway through The Trinity, specifically during “Never Gonna Be the Same.” The sweet, sad song is a wistful ode to Paul’s friend and mentor, Daddigon, along with several other lost loved ones. “Temperature” raises the heat, sister-duo Nina Sky pops up on “Connection,” and Beyonce sound-alike Tami Chynn contributes airy vocals to “All On Me.” But even with the help, the album’s second half fails to match the ferocious intensity of the first few tracks. Program your player to repeat The Trinity’s first five or six flavorful tracks and get busy, indeed. –Joey Guerra
