Jack White - Blunderbuss

The most important thing to realize is that Jack White’s new release Blunderbuss has bass. I do not mind as I am a bass enthusiast and player myself. Life without the White Stripes is good. Jack is an excellent piano player, as well as a great guitarist. The track “Missing Pieces” is a shining...

Counting Crows - Underwater Sunshine

By Kenneth E. Oquist I started Counting Crows’ new release Underwater Sunshine with “Return of the Grevious Angel”. Right away, I thought  this was just a “so so” song. The fact is they strayed from sounding like the Counting Crows and I did not care much for it. When they stay on their game, they come...

I Would Buy a Fun Pass at Caine’s Arcade

By Jeff Pierce When other kids his age are playing games, Caine is creating them out of scraps. What a touching story of one young boy who wanted to start his own arcade. If this doesn’t choke you up a bit you aren’t human. This takes me back to when I was a boy...

Madonna – ‘MDNA: Deluxe Edition’: A Review

The song “I F$%#ed up” off her new release MDNA finds Madonna confessional and delightfully human. This is one of the best on here. “Gang Bang” finds Madonna singing about a lover shot by gang members. This is a good song, but not one of the highlights.”B-Day Song” is a birthday song with a...

Lucero

These two subjects are sticky sujects. Let’s see how they handle it. The title track from Lucero’s new release Women & Work is a really great song: One shot of women and one shot of  work. Let it go. Let’s make a toast. In the morning it’s going to hurt. Come on kid, let’s...

Meat Loaf - Hell in a Handbasket

As the title suggests, the latest release from Meat Loaf, Hell in a Handbasket, finds the long-time rocker disgruntled — as many of us are at times. Sure it’s a cliche, but it’s not surprising that it is now the title of his new album. I was figuring on the usual fare from Meat...

Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball - Bonus Tracks

By Kenneth E. Oquist The bonus tracks from Bruce Springsteen’s new release Wrecking Ball are intriguing. If you are bonus track cuckoo, such as I am, you will consider these tracks essential.

Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Wrecking Ball’: Review – Five Stars

By

Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball

The new single “We Take Care of Our Own” off of Bruce Springsteen’s new album Wrecking Ball is a great Grammy performance. My favorite on this is “Shackled and Drawn”, which not only has a interesting Celtic feel, but a party hangover atmosphere to it. It would be impossible for most to accomplish this,...
