2.0 out of 5 stars Shame., 3 July 2017
This review is from: Blue Ridge Blood (MP3 Download)
What happened? Only just seen this release from last year and what a letdown. The first album Ghost of Browder Holler showed real promise, was lively without a duff track. Here all is slowed down with little difference between songs. Shame, I'm afraid for me without a memorable track.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lost it, 1 July 2017
This review is from: Together At Last (Audio CD)
The inspired music of Wilco was lost several albums back - this rehash of some classic songs is pointless and rather sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old friend returns, 30 Jun. 2017
This review is from: The Jealous Kind (Hardcover)
Why say more? Welcome back to the master, still supreme after 50 years of writing. Read them all several times, time to start all over again!


Resurrection Day

1.0 out of 5 stars Overlong tripe, 15 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Resurrection Day (Paperback)
What a ridiculously long (739 pages), overwritten load of tripe. Couldn't put it down? Couldn't wait to put it down. Could have got a better result in half that number of pages. Flipped through most of it waiting for something to happen. zzzzzzzzzzzz

2.0 out of 5 stars No big to do., 5 Oct. 2016
This review is from: American Band (Audio CD)
Sorry - obviously a heartfelt album with a message, but so dreary - where's the music? The songs ramble on, packed with words, ironically expressed in that flat, monotonous tone. An American Band? Oh dear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not keen on Keane!, 1 Oct. 2016
Halfway through Season 3 now and for me one of the most enjoyable series ever. James Spader turns in a consistently mesmerizing performance.
The only drawback for me is bloody Tom Keane who is a pain in the bum and almost unwatchable throughout. This dreadfully annoying creation seems to be able to survive multi-gunshot wounds - I live in hope that someone bumps him off soon, certainly before Season 4!

1.0 out of 5 stars Schmatter with this lot?, 17 Sept. 2016
This review is from: Schmilco (Audio CD)
Another dreary outing. There's a band hiding away somewhere here. Far removed from the glories of Summerteeth and Sky Blue Sky. No, less is less. For me he/they lost it several albums back. Excuse me while I schnooze.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight, 19 Jun. 2016
This review is from: case/lang/veirs (Audio CD)
Simply a delight. Could go into who wrote what and who sings what, but never mind that, this long-awaited release from 2 favorites (and k.d.) totally lives up to expectations. Several instant classics here - girl power's back! Now see the complete album live on youtube - even better!

1.0 out of 5 stars No he doesn't!, 20 May 2016
This review is from: I Still Do (Audio CD)
So laid back it's comatose inducing. A dreadful offering from Eric which includes those two great songs 'Little man you've had a busy day' and 'I'll be seeing you', immortalized by Vera Lynn (!). What was he thinking? Must be an age thing. Off to get the comfy slippers and take a long afternoon nap - zzzzzzzzzzz.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine detour, 6 May 2016
This review is from: Detour (Audio CD)
You've gotta hand it to Cyndi - after tackling the blues in the two fine Memphis albums (one live) - she now has a great crack at 40's to 60's country classics here. The results are mixed, outstanding personal favorites are Funnel of Love, Detour and Walking After Midnight. Not wild about the slower ballads, particularly Night Life featuring a decidedly struggling Willie Nelson! The album closes with another two favorites, I Want To Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart with Jewel, which has some great yodelling (!) and Hard Candy Christmas with Alison Krauss. All in all well worth the wait and sure brings a smile to the face.
