Sounds Like This by Eric Hutchinson

Album Review:

Originally Eric Hutchinson signed with Madonna’s label Maverick Records only to have it shutdown before its release. Ultimately his third album Sounds Like This was picked up by Warner Brothers after hitting the top ten on iTunes and #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart in September 2007. Most notable single from the album is Rock & Roll with its catchy folk/powerpop sound which has been featured in both television and the movies.

The Greatest Journey – Essential Collection by Celtic Woman

Excerpt from Amazon Reviewer Emily Smith:

Celtic Woman fans and music lovers alike will enjoy this release! It is what it says it is: the essential collection. Compiled in this [album] are many of the most loved songs that the group has released over the span of the past few years. For those who are not familiar with them, it is a good way to have a look at what they are all about.

In addition, there are two NEW songs that CW fans will go nuts for: “The Call” (lyrics by Brendan Graham) and “Pie Jesu,” which is a duet between Chloe and Lynn. It is lovely to hear Lynn on these two songs, as she has a fantastic voice and is such a perfect addition to the group! “The Call” is an absolutely beautiful song. It’s very powerful, very uplifting and has an almost haunting quality to it.

Nevermind (Deluxe Edition) by Nirvana

From Amazon.com:

If Nevermind’s sound is familiar now, it’s only because thousands of rock records that followed it were trying very hard to cop its style. It tears out of the speakers like a cannonball, from the punk-turbo-charged riff of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” onward, magnifying and distilling the wounded rage of 15 years of the rock underground into a single impassioned roar. Few albums have occupied the cultural consciousness like this one; of its 12 songs, roughly 10 are now standards. The record’s historical weight can make it hard to hear now with fresh ears, but the monumental urgency of Kurt Cobain’s screams is still shocking. –Douglas Wolk

Clouds by Apollo Brown

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Album Review:

About a year ago, a little chill and Hip-hop came together in the underground and formed an album that was fittingly released by the Mello Music Group. That album was created by Apollo Brown and named Clouds, a mostly instrumental collection that will get your head nodding in agreement and take you on a unique musical journey that could easily accompany an afternoon of cloud watching.

New Multitudes (Tribute to Woody Guthrie)

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Album Review:

Alternative country artist Jay Farrar is teaming up with Centro-matic’s Will Johnson, Anders Parker from Varnaline, and Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket for a tribute album honoring Woody Guthrie. The music on New Multitudes put music to some the legend’s unrecorded lyrics as a commemoration of Guthrie’s birthday and captures the true spirit of the artist on this great collaborative album.

Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder

Album Review:

Originally released in 1976 as a double LP with a 4 song EP, Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder has been called his crowning achievement and one of the top 500 albums of all time weighing in at #56 according to Rolling Stone. Listening to this album, you can tell that it was ahead of its time and focuses on a wide variety of themes including love, history, civil rights and even the birth of his daughter. For a glimpse into the man that is Motown, take an hour and 45 minutes and listen to the album from start to finish. Truly one of the best albums ever to be written and well deserving of its 4 Grammy awards.
