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”...

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 —...

Nightwish - Imaginaerum

If you like a sound like Roxette on steroids, give the new release from Nightwish ‘Imaginaerum’ a try. Europe seems willing to take more of a musical chance than the USA. The group is from Kitee, Finland. Nightwish is a hidden gem, indeed. “Taikatalvi” is a nice introduction to this release. It feels somewhat...

Kate Bush - 50 Words For Snow

By Kenneth E. Oquist You know you are in for a treat when the shortest song from Kate Bush on her new release ’50 Words For Snow’ is 6:49. That would be the song “Among Angels”. Piano, vocals and strings added on the second half pretty much sum up this track. The title track...

Jeff Bridges releases Jeff Bridges

Although Jeff Bridges’ new self titled release is a strong release for the here and now in importance, the reality is not so good in the must have department. I had  reservations going into this.

Falling in Reverse - The Drug in Me is You

The new release from Falling in Reverse ‘The Drug in Me is You‘ sounds like Hardcore and Pop crashed together to become Hardcore Pop. Does this mean a Hardcore sound smoothed over? Not a chance. It simply means there are Pop sounds on a Hardcore recording. Much like Nine Inch Nails created the genre...
