Probably the best album to ever be released
by the Foo Fighters, "The Colour & The Shape"
further solidified Dave Grohl stepping out of grunge's shadow
and making peace with the ghost of Kurt Cobain. Just about
all the songs here on this album are catchy and seem made
for radio friendly, but underneath that surface is a demonically
comical feel combined with a lot of emotion. More

How do these guys do it!? after almost
20 years they make possibly their best CD ever, either this
or Ixnay is the best! And the crtic reviews arent as bad as
people say, they are all 3/5 or a "B", those arent
bad even tho this CD deserves way more. Only a band like the
Offspring can make great music after this long while changing
their style but holding on to their roots. more

These guys were a great band and it
would be sweet to seem them come back together again. I
now own every Dispatch CD, but this one is like a greatest
hits compilation, every tune is THAT good. They are the
best indie rock band I've ever heard and likely the best
I'll ever hear. hypnotic and intelligent rap-like tunes.
The only thing is how their stuff never made it to the airwaves,
it's better than 99.9% of the stuff out there. other Indie
bands like O.A.R. and Guster, those bands just can't measure
up to Dispatch. Check them out.
Fans of Willy Porter,
Ben Harper, and G. Love will all want to check out Jack Johnson's
engaging folk- and blues-inflected pop. Born in Oahu, Hawaii,
Johnson, a former surfer and film-school graduate, has a knack
for acoustic ballads whose calm surfaces hide a subtle but
strong lyrical undertow. "It seems to me that 'maybe'
pretty much always means 'no,'" sings Johnson on "Flake,"
which features crony Harper on slide guitar. All

Linkin Parks second studio effort
(not counting the 2002 remix album Reanimation) overflows
with glossy production values and Big Rock oomph, fully embracing
the pop instincts of their Hybrid Theory debut. For many,
Theory sounded inexcusably corporate, from its too-timely
rap-rock sound to the long list of product endorsements included
in the liner notes. More

It's a totally different sound than their
previous albums. Not only a different sound, but different
themes as well. This cd you can relate to on so many levels,
and that is why you'll love it so much. The 80's feel that
alot of the songs on the album have is great and is a different
twist for the band. 2 tracks that stand out are "Always"
and "All of This" with The Cure's Robert Smith.
It's sooo hard to choose a favorite becasue they all rock!
Every track is amazing. more

With valuable assistance from producer
Rick Rubin, the Peppers find just the right blend of punk,
funk, and hip-hop. Even with a running time of 74 minutes,
this 1991 breakthrough has continuity and cohesion both within
and across the 17 cuts. More

Green wasn't called the "Green God" for nothing.
Green is arguably one of the best blues guitarists ever. There
is not a weak track in the lot; and the sound is very good.
So if you enjoy the @ss-kickin' blues of Kim Simmonds, Alvin
Lee, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor etc...you owe it to yourself
to get this album ASAP. There is absolutely no way you will
As the vitriol spewed from Evil Empire,
Rage Against the Machine's long-awaited follow up to their
1993 debut owes much to Chuck D.'s polemic fury and rapid-fire
urgency--though as always the band rages without hip-hop machinery
in favor of the heavy-duty power tools of rock. More

The debut of thundering supergroup Audioslave--featuring
members of Rage Against the Machine post-Zack de la Rocha
with ex-Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. Cornell's unmistakable
holler and nihilistic imagery ensure that Audioslave, the
album, recalls early Soundgarden. That's especially true since
de la Rocha took Rage's signature rap and politicking with
Nevermind's tears out of the speakers
like a cannonball, from the punk-turbo-charged riff of "Smells
Like Teen Spirit" onward, magnifying and distilling
the wounded rage of 15 years of the rock underground into
a single impassioned roar. Few albums have occupied the
cultural consciousness like this one. More
The real deal is that this is not so
much a hits package as a hyped collection of songs that
made the charts, album tracks, and rarities like Stevie
Ray Vaughan's "Pipeline" duet with surf-rock king
Dick Dale. More

Buena Vista Social Club's self titled first
album is musical excellence. Focusing predominantly on son,
a traditional Cuban musical form, BVSC delivers, and with
spectacular results. This collaborative masterpiece between
BVSC and Ry Cooder simply must be experienced.
