Just posted my recent review of The Flaming Lips' Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
I'd like to reiterate my thanks to the first guest reviewer, Lauretta Hobson, who reviewed a live concert by Semisonic. Thanks, Lauretta! If you'd like to submit a review, just email me.
Remember, all of the reviews are always found below...
These are basically in alphabetical order.
A jazz outing including Charlie Haden on bass, their first album was Going Back Home.
A review of Gabriel Dorman's album, Give That Dog Some Peace
FNSJ plays alternative country-rock. They performed live at the Varsity Theater in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on 7 November 1997.
In early 1998, they released their second album, Receiver, on Compass Records.
The Flaming Lips follow The Soft Bulletin with Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
The first album by the folksy, bluesy, pop rock band The Garden, previously known as Garden Variety.
Davíd Garza, of Austin, is a pop artist drenched in the pop rock of the 1960s and 70s with a few other things thrown in. His album This Euphoria is delightful.
Charlie Haden-Quartet West have a new album out called Now Is The Time.
Instant Soul is a fine compilation album from King Curtis, one of the best sax players in Rock 'n' Roll and R&B.
Ian McNabb, formerly of The Icicle Works, released a new album in 1996, Merseybeast. As usual, McNabb is putting out great stuff.
"Don't Put Your Spell On Me" is the first single from McNabb's Merseybeast.
Paul McCartney's album, Flaming Pie.
Texas artist Monte Montgomery performs acoustic blues/country/pop stuff. Here's a review of his album 1st And Repair.
Although reviewed in the summer of 1997, I just recently posted this review to the web page. Savage Garden's first eponymous album. My views may have changed since I first wrote this, but I still have to admit, I like the sound of this album.
Lauretta Hobson's review of the Nottingham, England concert.
My review of Great Divide.
My reivew of the I Am Sam soundtrack.
I've got one book listed here as I've found that music is one of it's main topics. If you're a male music fan, I think you'll find something in this story that hits a bit close to home. If you're a female music fan, maybe it will for you as well. If you're a female lover of a male music fan, you just might want to stay away as it might be too painfully funny.
A highly recommended book by British author, Nick Hornby, High Fidelity.
