Home To You by John Michael Montgomery:


Excerpt from Amazon reviewer “A Customer”

On Home to You, John Michael is at his best and shows his versatility, with several high-energy, up-tempo songs such as Hello L.O.V.E, Love is our Business, Love Made Me Do It, and You Are. If these songs don’t get your heart beating, nothing out there will! This [album] re-affirms JMM’s status as one of the best ballad singers in the business, with the best ballad being the title track Home to You. Several other really good slow songs on the CD include Sinkin In, and Nothing Catches Jesus by Surprise. A really good medium tempo song, Your Love Lingers On, will do very well for JMM, if released as a single.

Anne Murray by Anne Murray

From Amazon reviewer Anthony J. Calabrese:

There are some performers who feel the need to constantly reinvent themselves, insecurely latching on to any new musical trends that may come down the pike, and then there are artists who, by their sheer talent, remain contemporary and relevant no matter what the demographics, no matter what the generation. Anne Murray is planted resolutely in the latter category and the eponymous titled album “Anne Murray”, is indicative of this. This is, unabashedly, a great pop/adult contemporary album. Anne is in fine voice, performing beautiful ballads like “Missing You”, “Highway, Highway”, and “Me Too” in her classic, inimitable style. Her duet with Bryan Adams is flawless. This catchy, upbeat pop number deserved to be a major hit record. On other cuts, such as “Shame On Me” and “That’s The Way It Goes”, Anne’s gritty, straight-ahead vocals prove that she can rock with the best of them. There are few contemporary vocalists able to embrace such musical variety very convincingly. As usual, Anne Murray defies categorization. And as a result, a voice like hers will never go out of style.

Smooth Jazz Rock by Greg Witt
Album Review:

I did not know much about Greg Witt when I came across this album as so far, Smooth Jazz Rock is his available album that I could find so I turned to his website for more information. What I found most interesting was the claim on his homepage that “Greg Witt is often directly credited with changing the direction of jazz, via incorporating a pop-rock style into his recordings.” A pretty bold statement from an independent artist. As I listened to the album, there was definitely more Smooth Jazz than there was rock on this release and while technically well polished, I was left wanting more excitement from the music. Still, if you are looking for a light smooth jazz sound, the price may be right while Smooth Jazz Rock is a Drifting Deal.

Because I Can by Daphne Willis

Excerpt from Amazon Editorial:

Everything Daphne Willis has done up to now in both her music and her life has led to this moment–her new album, Because I Can (Vanguard, April 19), marks the 23-year-old writer/singer/guitarist’s artistic coming of age in thrilling–and at times heart-wrenching– fashion. This captivating album represents an exponential leap, as she grows into her enormous talent and puts it to powerful and relatable use via her singular sensibility. Because I Can sounds very much like the defining work of a young artist who matters.

Ten by Pearl Jam

Album Review:

It must be Nineties Week as we once again are seeing one of the defining albums from the period. Ten by Pearl Jam help to solidify the Seattle sound of the alternative grunge rock movement. Mookie Blaylock was the original name of the band, after the NBA basketball player of the same name, but following their name change, their debut album was titled Ten after his jersey number. While not immediately well received, the album would eventually gain popularity and go on to be Pearl Jam’s most commercial success and launch the career of Eddie Vedder. Ten has been certified thirteen times platinum and is highlighted by the three main singles, “Alive”, “Even Flow”, and “Jeremy”. If you are not one of the many that own this album already, now is a great time to pick it for its discounted price.

Loud Planes Fly Low by The Rosebuds

Editorial Review:

Loud Planes Fly Low is beautifully born of the struggle to define their relationship as bandmates and more importantly, friends outside of the context of marriage. It wasn’t easy. Written and rewritten, recorded and re-recorded in fits and starts, Loud Planes Fly Low allowed Kelly and Ivan to have the very conversations about their relationship that they’d long avoided.
