Bridesmaid Soundtrack – Various Artists – Haven't heard Wilson Phillips "Hold On" in years. I remember walking across the 59th Street Bridge, writing a novel called "Six Foot One" in my head with the song playing on my Walkman,. Oooh, and "Rip Her To Shreds" is next. All chicks all the time!
Stone Rollin – Raphael Saadiq – Still soul, still have my doubts. When it is good it is OK, when it ain't it's a drag and none of it adds a thing to its influences.
Solid Gold His – the Beastie Boys – Not chronological and there are more hits on License to Ill.
Rock And Roll Submarine – Urge Overkill – Sinks without a trace
Doctor Faith – Christopher Cross – I've heard of one hit wonders, but one wonders who are still at it decades longer? Cross' first album in over a decade and I almost feel protective.Unlistenable MOR… I did say almost.
Rise Again – Lee Scratch Perry – The heavy dub reggae rhythms of the great producer. Same as it ever was and no worst for that.
Move Like This – The Cars – I read a review where somebody said it was like an album full of "Just What I Needed" and no "Drive". Exactly.
The Road from Memphis – Booker T Jones – Sure he can play keyboards. No one said he couldn't. The problem is he can't write songs.
Man In Motion – Warren Haynes – How can somebody who plays such great guitar be so fucking boring?
She Was A Boy – Yael Naim – This is the chick who had the big hit with the TV ad song "New Soul". Yeah, deport her.
Worst Thing I've Been Cursed With – Sparks The rescue – May I go home now?
