Album Review: Jack White: Boarding House Reach

Posted: April 17, 2018 at 11:18 am   /   CD Reviews, Concerts, Music, Reviews

I have been a fan of Jack White since I can remember hearing the White Stripes for the first time. White is a guitar virtuoso and there are not many who can hang with him when it comes to shredding a guitar in music today. On his third album, “Boarding House Reach,” White goes off […]

Top 10 Albums of 2017

Posted: December 28, 2017 at 5:13 pm   /   CD Reviews, Local, Music, Music News, Reviews

To me, it was a weird year for music. It was hard for me to get into a lot of the new rock and hip hop that was released. In fact, a number of my favorite albums didn’t come out until the latter half of the year. I was also in the minority of those […]

While a lot of the album touches upon her relationship with her husband, Corey Hart, there are also plenty of political statements […]

Album Review: Gretchen Wilson “Ready to Get Rowdy”

Posted: June 21, 2017 at 3:05 pm   /   CD Reviews

The title says it all. The Redneck Woman is back and country fans better take notice. Wilson burst onto the scene back in 2004 with Redneck Woman and shot to superstardom overnight. After a nice run on the country scene, Wilson took time off to focus on being a mom to her daughter. After a […]

Review: Seether’s Seventh Album, “Poison the Parish,” Out Now

Posted: May 12, 2017 at 2:01 pm   /   CD Reviews

Who needs a producer? Seether clearly doesn’t and they’re better off for it with their new album “Poison the Parish.” The South African band’s seventh album is a throwback of sorts. It’s Seether going back to it’s roots. The band has ditched the idea of hiring a producer, with lead singer Shaun Morgan taking on the […]

Very seldom is there an album that comes out that truly gets me excited. I guess Pearl Jam’s recent album could count as one that I was stoked about, but that is about it. Enter Eric Church, country music’s modern day outlaw. He’s a man among boys in today’s world of country music. While Luke […]

Album Review: ‘Goodnight Moon Part II’ by Rookie of the Year

Posted: August 6, 2013 at 11:58 pm   /   CD Reviews, Local, Music

There are some songs/albums that just beg to be played on a summer car ride with the windows rolled down. I could list a dozen of each that I’ve played from my iPod/phone countless times. Beyond that, though, there are bands whose entire catalogs appear to be written in this manner. On a roadtrip with your […]

Album Review: ‘Unimagine’ by Hands Like Houses

Posted: July 23, 2013 at 2:11 am   /   CD Reviews, Local, Music, Reviews

Perhaps it’s something they put in the water, but three of my favorite bands in recent memory have all hailed from the land down under. Back when I briefly played bass for a metal band(!), I was introduced to a metalcore band called Parkway Drive, an extremely talented brutal assault on your eardrums. After them […]
