Laidlaw - First Big Picnic
Review by Brian Angotti
Laidlaw is the first band to emerge from Nikki Sixx's Americoma label. First Big Picnic, Laidlaw's debut is a great southern rock album with soulful vocals and blistering guitars.
More
Lake - Lake II
Review by Gary Hill
Lake was one of the great unknown bands of the 1970s. The group combined strong pop melodies with definite progressive rock-oriented arrangements.
More
Lakefield - Swan Songs
Review by G. W. Hill

This thing is almost modern progressive rock.


More
Nathaniel Land - Make This World Our Own
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite a strong album.


More
Steve Laputa - Guitars and Christmas Trees
Review by Gary Hill
Guitarist Steve Laputa has put together a CD whose title both does a great job of getting you ready for the music within and also is a nice creative twist. The cover is much a similar twist, and both of these things fit very well with the music contained within
More
Liz Larin - The Story of O-Miz
Review by Steve Alspach
One tends to feel sorry for people living in Detroit. It's not the most picturesque city around, the economy isn't that good, and don't even mention the Tigers.
More
Brian Larney - At the Starting Line
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite a cool set. It doesn’t fit neatly into any one category, though.


More
Larusso - Fever (digital single)
Review by G. W. Hill

What a cool song this is.


More
Mark Lassiter - Endlessly
Review by G. W. Hill

This EP is very good. There isn’t a weak song here.


More
Last Charge of the Light Horse - Nine Kinds of Happy
Review by G. W. Hill

There is quite a bit of roots music built into this.


More
The Last Ditches - Spilt Milk
Review by G. W. Hill
I’ve followed Randy Pratt’s career from the days when he was part of The Star People.
More
Jelani Lateef - Cold Days and Dark Nights
Review by G. W. Hill

Hip hop can be a tough genre to review.


More
Jacob Latham - Midnight Train
Review by G. W. Hill

I love this set. My only complaint is that I wish there were more here.


More
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains the Same
Review by Gary Hill
Few bands have ever achieved the level of success that Led Zeppelin did, and certainly not any that only released  a handful of albums.
More
Led Zeppelin - Presence
Review by Gary Hill
Often overlooked, this is actually one of my favorite Zeppelin albums.
More
The Left Ready - Ghost
Review by G. W. Hill

I like the variety here.


More
The Legal Matters - The Legal Matters
Review by G. W. Hill

If you like good pop rock with both retro and modern elements, this is for you. I


More
Chris Leigh - Broken Hearted Friends
Review by G. W. Hill

There is a lot of old school country in the mix here.


More
Leonino - Naked Tunes
Review by G. W. Hill

This is a bit of a mixed bag.


More
Tyson Leslie - Train Wrecks, Havoc & Heartbreak
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite cool album.


More
Adam Levy - Naubinway
Review by G. W. Hill

There is a very wide range of music on this album.


More
Lillian Axe - One Night in the Temple
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite a cool set. Lillian Axe threw a party for family, friends and some lucky fans.


More
Cory Linden - Based on a True Story
Review by G. W. Hill

There is something to be said for pacing and laying out a set with the best material opening and closing.


More
L,I.N.T. - Day 1
Review by Bruce Stringer
L.I.N.T. are, to me, a curious Swedish mix of Voivod and Blink 182. I dig Voivod. I don't dig Blink 182, however I can appreciate their pop sensibilities.
More
Little Feat - Kickin' It At The Barn
Review by Gary Hill
Little Feat is one of those bands with a loyal following, much like the Dead, Phish and Jimmy Buffett. I am sure that that group of people waits with bated breath for each new release from the band.
More
Little Feat - Live in Holland 1976
Review by G. W. Hill

This classic Little Feat concert has gotten great treatment on this release.


More
Ron Littlejohn and the Funk Embassy - Shining On
Review by G. W. Hill

Fans of old school R&B and soul will love this. It’s really quite retro in texture. There’s nothing here that doesn’t work quite well.


More
The Living Sisters - Harmony is Real: Songs for a Happy Holiday
Review by G. W. Hill

It would be very easy, given the front cover and the sound, to think this was an album released in the 1950s or 1960s.


More
The Lizards - The Lizards Rule
Review by Gary Hill
The second CD from the Lizards is entitled "The Lizards Rule". That title is quite appropriate because for fans of 1970's styled blues oriented hard rock, the Lizards do rule.
More
The Lizards - Reptilicus Maximus
Review by G. W. Hill

You just can’t go wrong with this band. 


More
Locrian - Infinite Dissolution
Review by Mike Korn

I will leave it to wiser heads than mine when it comes to categorizing Locrian. They do not fit any particular genre box neatly.


More
Zain Lodhia - The Leap
Review by G. W. Hill

There is some great music on here. There is also some stuff that I don’t find as compelling.


More
Nils Lofgren - UK2015 Face the Music Tour
Review by G. W. Hill

Nils Lofgren is probably best known for his guitar work with Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band.


More
The Long Ryders - Final Wild Songs
Review by G. W. Hill

This band was sort of equal parts old time rock and roll, country and rockabilly and punk edge.


More
Lance Lopez - Live in NYC
Review by G. W. Hill

The easiest comparison here is to Stevie Ray Vaughn. Lance Lopez’ music definitely occupies a similar territory most of the time.


More
Ben Lorentzen - America
Review by G. W. Hill

In terms of a question of balance, if the bulk of this album were more like the first couple songs, I’d land this in progressive rock.


More
Lost Dog Found - Dine on Danger
Review by G. W. Hill

I remember when the resurgence of swing music was a big deal.


More
Love and a 38 - Nomads
Review by G. W. Hill

There is nothing Earth shattering in terms of creativity here. Instead, what we get is a smoking hot collection of straight ahead hard rock.


More
Love Crushed Velvet - Delusions
Review by G. W. Hill

I really love this EP. I’d like to hear more.


More
Lovesick Saints - Dia De Los Muertos
Review by G. W. Hill

Punk or emo is probably the best description of this, but there are a lot of other elements at play.


More
Lovesucker - Lovesucker
Review by G. W. Hill

With a name like “Lovesucker,” one might expect raunch and roll or heavy metal. This is neither.


More
The Lowest Pair - Fern Girl & Ice Man
Review by G. W. Hill
I didn’t expect to fall in love with this act and particularly this album.
More
The Lowest Pair - Uncertain As It Is Uneven
Review by G. W. Hill

This is the second CD I’ve reviewed by this act for this issue of Music Street Journal.


More
Gary Lucas & Jann Klose - Stereopticon
Review by G. W. Hill

This disc features a sound that is a combination of folk music, rock, jazz, blues and more.


More
Barbara Lusch - Rock Me Sweet
Review by G. W. Hill

This is an album of covers.
