5.0 out of 5 stars Great new album, but don't forget about this masterpiece !, 7 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Before...But Longer (Audio CD)
The Czars have just released a new album. If you like their new album, you should definitely check out this one. Before Beut Longer is a masterpiece. Beautiful alt-country !! Just listen to the first song, Val, and you know what I'm talking about. The new Czars cd is a great album, this is their masterpiece !

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year!, 7 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Bavarian Fruit Bread (Audio CD)
We had to wait for quite some time for this album, but it definitely was worth the wait !
Hope Sandoval proves that there is life after Mazzy Star. Because of Hope's amazing voice, this album sounds like Mazzy Star. There are differences as well. The songs are more laid-back than the songs on Mazzy Star albums. Hope gives us a cd which makes day-dreaming easier than ever. Great songs, great atmosphere ! One of the better albums of the year !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stina does it again, 6 Nov. 2001
Stina Nordenstam is Scandinavia's best kept secret. Unfortunately, we didn't hear much from her during the last few years; the rather disappointing cover-album "People are strange" (1998) is the last cd I can remember. Now, Stina is back with a great album. "This is Stina Nordenstam" comes close to her 1993 masterpiece "And she closed her eyes". Some great new songs and of of course Stina's amazing voice. This is definitely an album you shoudl try when you have a crush on female vocalists. You won't be disappointed ! Buy "And she closed her eyes" at the same time, it's Stina's masterpiece, available for a nice price !

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from Dar !, 5 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Out There Live (Audio CD)
Dar Williams is practically unknown in Europe and that's a shame. So far, she delivered four studio albums, of which three can be considered as "classic" albums.
This live album gives an overview of Dar's career. It contains songs from all her previous cd's, gives an impression of the energy level of Dar Williams' performances and shows what a great songwriter and singer she is.
This album won't disappoint you, but buy one of her previous albums when you want to buy a real classic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the album you've been waiting for !, 5 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Love, Shelby (Audio CD)
Two years ago Shelby Lynne surprised us all with the beautiful "I am Shelby Lynne". Expectations were high for this new cd, but what a disappointment!
Love, Shelby is Shelby Lynne's attempt to make a Middle-of-the-Road album and she definitely succeeded.
Working with Glenn Ballard might have worked fine for Alanis Morisette, it did not work fine for Shelby. Boring songs adjusted to the average radio listener in the US.
Shelby can't make a real bad album, but this one is not good either and that's a huge disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's life after Uncle Tupelo !!, 5 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Sebastopol (Audio CD)
Jay Farrar is back ! Son Volt never matched the quality of Uncle Tupelo, but this solo-album does. A wonderful album, a must-buy for everyone who loves americana, alt.country or whatever you call it. A masterpiece !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from Leona Naess, 5 Nov. 2001
This is a great album !! Great songs, a great voice and quite a couple of styles on one album. From pure pop (Mexico) to 70's dico (All the stars). Definitely an album that you will play over and over again. Leona Naess doesn't get the attention that she deserves and that's a pity. This is one of the better albums released this month.
