Re: “Masters of Sound

World Boogie Is Coming is an A+ album and nothing short of that. NMA once again produced an album so real and raw it hurts and feels good all at the same time. I can’t get enough of NMA!!

Re: “Local Record Reviews: Help Is On The Way by Don Trip

Don Trip has definitely brought his A game in the rap world. I'm old school and had to get schooled on him via YouTube. He is definitely one of the new heavy hitters in the rap world. I just hate that this mix tape business in the rap genre is killing the value of rap music. It was cool when mix tapes where just that---a couple of mixed together hooks and beats just to give the fans something until the next album dropped. Now, these are full fledged albums (15 to 20 songs) that they give away for free, but the production cost is still the same. Anyway, I'm side tracked. Big props to Don Trip and continued success for him.

Re: “Record Reviews

For some reason I expected this review to be about Fantasea, Azealia Bank's mixtape that was released this week. I'll keep my eyes peeled for that one next month.

Re: “Record Reviews

Phlo, you've got a lot of catching up to do with Todd. I'd start with Songs for the Daily Planet and work your way through. Then hit youtube for some of his better solo stuff. That'll take a year or so. Then catch him at the shell this summer.

Re: “Record Reviews

Grabbed 'em both, Chris, after reading your reviews. Bruce being Bruce warrants the grade, but the other? Well. There's a new Todd out there, and his name ain't Rundgren. I don't know how I've missed out on this guy, but I appreciate you letting us know he's out there (in more ways than one). Thanks, guy.

Re: “Classic Memphis power pop remembered and updated on two new releases.

Only Ardent could spend 18 months releasing a 3-song live soundboard recording.

Re: “Stax great Steve Cropper looks back on an unusually good tribute album.

What makes it a "questionable" album type?

Re: “Stax great Steve Cropper looks back on an unusually good tribute album.

Some of Pauling's other music can be found on youtube by searching for "el pauling"

Re: “Stax great Steve Cropper looks back on an unusually good tribute album.

The “5” Royales were one of many 50s groups that created great music but were passed over because their original versions were too gritty for the pop charts. Lowman Pauling had a wild stage act, performing guitar acrobatics while delivering a wall of guitar sound. The music of the “5” Royales was covered Ray Charles, Mick Jagger and James Brown. Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/fxSYOl has the story of how Pauling’s pioneering use of intentional feedback and echo influenced guitarists like Eric Clapton.

Re: “M.I.A.'s unlikely sophomore triumph.

We now know that MIA doesn't write or create any of her own music. So exactly who are you giving a A to?

Re: “Lucero frontman goes solo

I loved it. Last Pale Light was the most played local CD in my car all year. My only complaint, I wanted more, more, more.

Re: “Record Review

I love this album! I think Miranda Lambert will be around a long time, she is awesome! Her songwriting is amazing, and she is at her best performing live!
