A small duck reads his weekly newspaper, silently weeping

this is more than just reviews. this is a reviewalation.

Glen Phillips
Coyote Sessions
Glen Phillips is always a winner in my book…this group of acoustic recordings shows off some good songwriting skills and singing. Take a listen!

Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson
Wreck and Ruin
These two do a great job of this style of music. It is kind of just down and dirty country music, nothing too shiny on this release, which is really awesome. A great continuation of their last album.

Paul Carrack
Good Feeling
I don’t know about Paul Carrack, he has a good voice, but too often leans on the light-rock way of things. Nothing too spectacular on this one, but a strong effort none the less.

Hidden Pictures
Rainbow Records
OMG! This is fantastic! So much fun, just great pop songs, produced and sung well, makes you feel at home with the band, as if they have been your favorite band for 10 years, and this is just another in a long string of albums!

Blinker The Star
We Draw Lines
So-so release from this group, a few good turns here and there, but nothing spectacular. But glad to hear something new from the band, if you are a fan, go for it, if not, it might not do much for you.

The Last of 2008

OK, this is it, the final review blog of 2008. It was a great year for music, but 2009 looks like it will be hitting us with some winners. Find out more in my next exciting blog! It’s getting kinda crazy around here, what with all the winter madness shaking things up. Hey! I just saw an awesome concert yesterday, by Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles. A fun, rip-roarin’ show, I even got to meet the band, a bunch of nice fellas and lady. Check my facebook for pics. Otherwise, have fun for ’09!
