Be Here Now: Snapshot Reviews Of New Album Releases 12-10-13

His Shining Moment

 Give Me Strength Sessions ’74-’75 – Eric Clapton – The sessions from one of the great albums of the 1970s, a height of spirituality and passion Clapton has never come close to before and since and anything that adds to the story including a 1974 concert, is more than welcome – A

And The Internet – Childish Gambino – Stand up comics second effort worse than his first, a terrible rap album – D+

Black Panties – R. Kelly – with the possible exception of Prince, nobody likes fucking this much – C

The Block Brochure Welcome To The Soil Parts 4,5,6 – E-40 – San Fran rapper who needs a little quality control on his massive output – C

Live At the cellar Door – Neil Young – Just what the world needs, another live album from Young. This one dating from 1970 which is where the plus comes in – C+

Whiskey And Lace – Krystal Keith – The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, unfortunately. Terrible country twaddle with super creepy “Daddy Dance with me” leading the way – D+

A Color Map Of The Sun (Remix Album) – Pretty Lights – about as useful as the Neil Young album except the Talib Kwelli song which is pretty good – C

#checkseason – Paul Wall – White boy rap and please not the hashmark – C-

Stay Trippy – Juicy J – Three new tracks featuring 2 Chainz, Wix and the weeknd – C+

One Flag – Elvis Crespo – Peaked fifteen years ago and the modern production values here just add to the headaches – C+

Feels Like Carolina – Parmalee – Atrocious country boy band – B
