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...

Switchfoot - Vice Verses

We are right at the beginning of a busy major release season. I have heard the track “Dark Horses” from Switchfoot’s new release Vice Verses during a football game, so it has received major exposure to a large audience. It’s also an excellent song with nice guitar work. “Selling the News” is an unusual...

Hank Williams III- Ghost to a Ghost/Guttertown

The thirty songs on Hank William III’s new double CD Ghost To a Ghost/Gutter Town is quite an undertaking to hear. Never mind Hank William III’s other releases 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin and the Doom Metal Attention Deficit Domination that I will get to later. “C*&% of a B#&*%$” is not your Dad or...

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. If actors do releases, they get judged by artists of genre. This falls far short. The singing is okay,...

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...

Taking Back Sunday - Taking Back Sunday

Taking Back Sunday’s original lineup gathers back together on their new self-titled release Taking Back Sunday. Starting out with a shout, the song “El Paso” has some excellent guitar sounds on it. I like the the middle fizzling out and kicking back up again. A really great Alternative Rock sounding song is the marvelous...

Brad Paisley - This is Country Music

It may be Brad Paisley is too good on the guitar. Never shy about doing blazing hot solos, they are in abundance on his brand new album This is Country Music. He really does shine on “Eastwood” which features Clint Eastwood. Western it is, and features a jaw dropping solo in the middle of the...

Lady GaGa’s new release Born This Way is set to release on Monday, May 23rd. 2011. There is no arguing she is a mega superstar. It will sell millions. “Born This Way” is an okay single, better remixed. “Judas” is a better song although some argue the subject has been done better by other...
