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.
Come on the Phone by Magnétophone (Review)
Play any of these songs for someone and tell them it’s a long-lost Autechre b-side and they’d probably believe you.
Every Day and Every Night by Bright Eyes (Review)
Although it’s only a five song EP, Every Day and Every Night is a weighty affair.
Windows For Stars by For Stars (Review)
This is the real thing kids, pop music that’s accessible and catchy, but with more than its share of haunting emotion.
In the Russet Gold of This Vain Hour by The Autumns (Review)
In the Russet Gold of This Vain Hour lacks its predecessor’s sense of bombast, instead opting for a much more delicate sound, one of finesse and filigree.
Selmasongs by Björk (Review)
Björk’s voice has never been better, nor has her writing seemed so focused.
Come to Where I’m From by Joseph Arthur (Review)
I hope everybody besides me might now see him as Morrissey’s American counterpart.
Conversion/Signal by Judgement Of Paris (Review)
The recording and the performances are flawless, perhaps TOO flawless.
OVO: The Millennium Show by Peter Gabriel (Review)
OVO is an almost excellent record, not without its flaws, I must admit, but pretty much worth the money.
A Fading Summer EP by The Clientele (Review)
Ultra-jangly pop songs that sound as fragile as glass sculptures and are just as pretty.
Songs of Latitude and Longitude by Best Boy Electric (Review)
I challenge you to listen to Songs of Latitude and Longitude and not get a little nostalgic.
