Owl City - The Midsummer Station

By Kenneth E. Oquist The hit single off of Owl City’s new album The Midsummer Station is far more profound than the goofy “Call Me Maybe.” What do I know. Owl City shows how good he is with “Good Time” — taking Carly Rae Jepson to a new level. Maybe there are a few oh...

Norah Jones - Little Broken Hearts

By Kenneth E. Oquist The title track “Little Broken Hearts” off of Norah Jones’ new release features a shimmering guitar effect. It’s kind of slow, but this does not hurt it, and you just notice it. “Happy Pills” is the single and a good choice, featuring a pop guitar sound. “Out on the Road”...

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...

Cowboy Junkies - The Wilderness

The song “F%#k I Hate the Cold” buried at the end of the Cowboy Junkies new release, The Wilderness, is arguably the best song ever done by the long time Alternative Country artists from the Great White North. Having grown up in Minnesota, this hits the nail on the head big time! This is...

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...

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. Artists such as Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and in Elton John’s case b-side mania, have made available to...

Van Halen - A Different Kind of Truth

David Lee Roth is back in the line up on Van Halen’s new release A Different Kind of Truth, and this rocks! Some people don’t know what to think about the song “Tattoo”. It sounds like Van Halen to me. It will sneak up on you. “She’s the Woman” is a great rockin’ tune —...

Ringo Starr

By Kenneth E. Oquist Once you get over the fact this is under thirty minutes, you will like Ringo Starr’s new release Ringo 2012. “Step Lightly” is redone very well here. From Ringo (1973), this was the b-side of “Oh My My”. The beat had a lilt to it. It’s done quite a bit different...

Tim McGraw - Emotional Traffic

Missing the big Christmas music blast wasn’t a bad thing for Tim McGraw. With big name releases being few and far between early in the year, his new release ‘Emotional Traffic’ really stands out. I liked the title of this right away. “Felt Good on My Lips” has an interesting alternative guitar sound. One...

Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball

Song titles for the March 6th, 2012 release of Bruce Springsteen’s 17th studio album ‘Wrecking Ball’ are the new single “We Take Care of Our Own”, which sounds haunting — like a song from Springtsteen’s earlier releases ‘Born to Run’ or ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’. After hearing this, I can say I...
