Dream Signals in Full Circles by Tristeza (Review)
One of those rare cases where you can call a record repetitive and mean it as a compliment.
The White Birch by Codeine (Review)
Here’s an album so devoid of any sense of triumph or victory. It’s as spartan and sparse as they come.
The Facts of Life by Black Box Recorder (Review)
In short, this album, though still an import, is worth every single penny and is one of 2000’s classics.
Mystery White Boy by Jeff Buckley (Review)
Jeff Buckley didn’t belong in anything so small as a rock band.
Tengo Yellow Pedal by Friction Bailey (Review)
A very consistent album, but that consistency keeps me from digging into this album.
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (Review)
This an album that speaks of freedom, but also is brave enough to declare that one must venture through darkness and madness to achieve it.
Ágætis Byrjun by Sigur Rós (Review)
Songs like these belong in movies at those pivotal scenes when someone has a religious experience, when long-lost lovers are finally reunited, or when someone is brought back from the brink of death.
Trilogie: Toil & Peaceful Life by Molasses (Review)
To say that Chernoff’s vocals and lyrics are an acquired taste is an understatement.
Kid A by Radiohead (Review)
Radiohead temper their worldview with what at least seems to be a very real sense of hope.
Teaching Turtles to Fly by Map (Review)
Intricate, lush music that’s highly recommended for Starflyer 59 fans.
Your Arsenal by Morrissey (Review)
This record could be considered the one that helped Brit-pop be what it has been, in my humble opinion.
Six Wall Solution by Bamboo Grove (Review)
Bamboo Grove’s music falls squarely into that style of melodic, groove-oriented pop that’s normally reserved for the likes of the Dave Matthews Band.
