“Now For Plan A” by The Tragically Hip

“Now For Plan A” by The Tragically Hip

After twelve studio albums, with the first EP dating back to 1987, The Tragically Hip have set some pretty high expectations for themselves. All five members of The Hip, as they are often called for short, have surely grown accustomed to the widespread recognition and acclaim that they receive not only in their native Canada, […]

“Uno!” by Green Day

Post-two concept albums, a politically charged rock opera, a throwback ’60s garage band alter-ego, and a regrettably unforgettable iHeartRadio Music Festival performance, what could possibly be left for Green Day to accomplish? To keep on rocking of course; three-fold to be exact. The first installment of their album trilogy, Uno!, takes everything you were expecting […]

“A Collection” by The Be Good Tanyas

“A Collection” by The Be Good Tanyas

After a four-year hiatus, The Be Good Tanyas are back with A Collection, a career-spanning retrospective album that includes tracks from their three studio albums, as well as two new songs. As seems fitting from a retrospective, A Collection doesn’t break new ground even on its new tracks, but it’s a welcome return from a well-loved […]

“CSN 2012″ by Crosby, Stills & Nash

“CSN 2012″ by Crosby, Stills & Nash

For the first time in over two decades, Crosby, Stills & Nash welcome their audiences to experience all the brilliance of the group’s live performances right in their very own living room. CSN 2012, an album recorded to accompany the band’s first live performance film in over twenty years, brings the energy of the stage […]

“The Body Wins” by Sarah Jaffe

“The Body Wins” by Sarah Jaffe

Sarah Jaffe has taken a huge creative step from her first album with her new release, The Body Wins. Her 2010 album, Suburban Nature, was a nicely composed album that relied mostly on guitar melodies, but it lacked something, as do many singer-songwriters’ first bout. Her sophomore album is a much more interesting, well-rounded set of […]

“Beautiful Friction” by The Fixx

“Beautiful Friction” by The Fixx

Beautiful Friction is an eclectic collection of thoughts using the instrumental roots of the band to portray them. This will be the 10th studio album for The Fixx, but they have stayed close to their ’80s pop tendencies. There is always that dreamy scenery with a more abrupt foreground. The familiarity of this style is […]

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me”

Let’s be honest; a tribute album is really easy to get wrong. Whether it be The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit or Harptallica: A Tribute, fans who are musicians themselves can easily get carried away in their enthusiasm for another artist and miss the feel and excitement of the music altogether. Fortunately, that is not […]

“One Lovely Day” by Citizen Cope

“One Lovely Day” by Citizen Cope

Clarence Greenwood is at it again, producing yet another completely likeable album that will translate excellently on stage. In 2010 he ditched major labels altogether and independently recorded and produced The Rainwater LP under his own label, Rainwater Recordings. One Lovely Day, his new full-length album released only two years later, is quite the feat […]
