21 – Adele – I almost bought it because of the one great song. Actually, it is a dog.
Sunset Over Hope Street – Ari Hest – Didja read the album’s name? Wadja think the sucker sounds like?
Myself In Two – Jen Hirsch – Bad chick singerly crapola.
Original Sin – INXS – Oh, dear. I knew I never much liked the band, just didn’t realize I disliked them this much. INXS took old hits and added guest lead singers to make up for Michael Hutchinson. Who isn’t around to defend himself.
Tell Someone – The Morning Code – “Silver” is killer, the rest is not as good indie rock.
Ruthless – The Great Valley – Power pop punk a la the Queers. Maybe even sweeter. If the Monkees did punk but not as good as that sounds.
Everybody Wants To Be A Cat – Various Artists – Jazz reworkings of Disney classics. Should be great, and yes that is grammy winner Esperanza Spalding doing “Chim Chim Cher E”
