  • Spilt Milk

    • 10 out of 10
    • Jellyfish
    • The second and final album from this power-pop group makes me wish Jellyfish had been able to make just one more record together. The album is best enjoyed as a whole piece, flowing from one track to
  • Gimme Fiction

    • Spoon
    • Gimme Fiction by Spoon is a terrific album by an Austin band that I was lucky enough to catch on an Austin radio station during a Christmas visit.

  • Mezzanine

    • 6 out of 10
    • Massive Attack
    • "Black Milk" knocks me off my feet in this collection of moody and eclectic songs. Massive Attack uses samples and keyboards in a very unique way, but not all the songs pack the same punch.

  • Perverse

    • When you think of Jesus Jones, chances are you can't remember them at all, or you vaguely remember "Right Here, Right Now" because it has been use

iTunes Music Review - Is This It

  • Is This It

    • 10 out of 5
    • The Strokes
    • Reviewed by Bryan Chaffin

    • The Strokes set the music world on fire with this 2001 album, with headlines declaring that the New York band was here to save Rock and Roll. While the band hasn't made as much of a splash since then, Is This It remains one of the best albums in the last 20 years.

      Smart, guitar-driven, but vocal-carried rock songs jump out of this album, allowing us to forget about all of the bad music the record industry tries to foist on us every day. "Last Nite" was the hit on the album, but "The Modern Age," "Is This It," "Barely Legal," and "New York City Cops" are all great listens, too. The entire album reflects the band's roots of The Velvet Underground, The Modern Lovers, The Stooges, and a host of New York bands.

      Favorite Songs: "Last Nite," "The Modern Age," "Is This It," "Barely Legal," and "New York City Cops"
