Aaliyah - Aaliyah Review by Gary Hill Coming almost 5 years after her previous release, this is the third album by Aaliyah. Tragically, it will also be the last since a plane crash claimed her life this summer. More
ABC - Absolutely Review by Gary Hill ABC's blend of danceable pop really took over MTV for a year or two in the `80`s. This album is a compilation of many of their hits, some of them from that time period. More
ABC - The Lexicon of Love Review by Gary Hill When this album first came out it really captured my heart. I listened to it day in and day out for a long time. More
Aerial - Caught Inside the Circle CD EP Review by Bruce Stringer Texas based Aerial have started to draw attention to themselves with their recent Peter Gabriel support and CD EP, Caught Inside the Circle. With influences ranging from Michael Hedges (whose Aerial Boundaries was the inspiration behind their name) to The Sundays, Tori Amos to U2, and Sade to Depeche Mode Aerial have managed to produce a mature and positive sound that highlights the song writing duo of Julie Lange and Kell Curtis. More
Aerosmith - Nine Lives Review by Gary Hill Aerosmith seem to have gone through several phases, musically, during their career. The early years marked a creative and charged vision. As time wore on, the band seemed to lose direction, both personally and musically. Once the original lineup reformed, there was a renewed energy in the band, but much of the work seemed rather formula. More
Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic Review by Gary Hill You know, this album is really a classic, but it seems to me that there are probably a lot of music fans out there who haven’t heard it these days. So, it seems a good thing to have a look at.
Alcoholika - Toxicnology Part 1 & 2 Review by Rick Damigella This is oddest record I have had to review thus far. From what I can gather, this is a compilation of the two releases called Toxicnology Part 1 and Toxicnology Part 2. More
Gary Allan - Greatest Hits Review by Gary Hill This compilation of Gary Allan's biggest hits is a collection that is very good, but could have been much better. Since it's entitled “Greatest Hits” rather than “Best Of” there's a certain degree of limitation on what tracks can be included – that's just the nature of the beast. More
American Zen - Level 1 - Peace of Mind Review by Gary Hill We're all familiar with Christian rock bands, but American Zen is most likely the first Buddhist rock band you've ever heard. They may well be the only one in existence. More
Tori Amos - Scarlet's Walk Review by Gary Hill Tori Amos always produces quality albums and has never failed to entertain this listener for certain. This album is no exception.
Tori Amos - Boys For Pele Review by Gary Hill This album is yet another wonderful work from Tori Amos. Her style combines wonderful lyrics, that are at times a bit on the gritty side, with music that calls to mind Kate Bush, without copying her. More
Tori Amos - From the Choirgirl Hotel Review by Gary Hill It seems that every album that Tori Amos does is better than the previous release. Considering the quality of her albums, this has to be a difficult task. More
Tori Amos - Strange Little Girls Review by Gary Hill What an interesting decision and album this is. Amos this time chooses to record a collection of covers of other musician's songs rather than original material. More
Tori Amos - Live At Montreux 1991-1992 Review by Gary Hill The companion to the DVD, this CD represents Tori Amos’ two appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The first set of songs are from 1991, before her debut album was released. More
Antigone Rising - Traveling Circus Review by Gary Hill If you are a fan of classic rock, this album should be of interest to you. Antigone Gone lays down their own blend that at times calls to mind such diverse acts as Cream, The Allman Brothers, Joan Jett, The Who, The Ramones, the Cranberries and even the Dixie Chicks. More
India Arie - Acoustic Soul Review by Gary Hill With Acoustic Soul, India Arie has released a very strong debut. She shows that she has a great gift for song writing and musical and vocal performance. More
Diane Arkenstone & Misha Segal - Christmas Healing Volume 2 Review by G. W. Hill For those of us who celebrate Christmas, the right music is important. Diane Arkenstone and Misha Segal have given us three (or one if you buy it as a set) new releases that provide some excellent sounds for your holiday.
Diane Arkenstone & Misha Segal - Christmas Healing Volume 3 Review by G. W. Hill This is the third volume of the Christmas Healing Set by Arkenstone and Segal. As mentioned in the other individual reviews, it’s probably best to just get the whole set as one, but any of these would be great accompaniment to your holiday.
Attack! Attack! - Attack! Attack! UK Review by Gary Hill It’s a dangerous game Attack! Attack! UK plays. When you create a sound that’s much like a big chunk of the music being played on the radio you walk a fine line. More
Audioscam - Abbattack Review by Gary Hill Let’s take a bunch of Abba songs and do them in an almost metal motif. Who in the world would have ever thought of that idea? More
Average White Band - Greatest and Latest Review by Gary Hill I have to admit that while I am a avid prog and metal fanatic, R & B, soul and especially funk have a special place in my musical tastes. So, Average White Band, the guys responsible for the CLASSIC funk song "Pick Up The Pieces" fit well within that range. More
