I Trust You to Kill Me
An interesting mesh of blends, this album is an elaborate piece of art. True it is fairly rough at times, even unsightly at times, but that is part of the appeal that Deluca uses to his advantage. The vocal style is incredibly unique, but somehow fits perfectly with the slide guitar and the rather unusual distortion selections.
All Time Low
So Wrong, It's Right
Exactly what you would expect, and nothing better. Made for no one with a Y chromosome or past the age of 14.
More than half of this album is classic blues, and a wide variety of blues at that. Joe's style is both utterly furious and soothingly calm. However, towards the back half of the album, things start to get a little repetitive. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the ending tracks and definitely weaker than their counterparts. Still, if you are a fan of the blues, this album is a must.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band
Live! in Chicago
Kenny delivers in top form here, with a slew of fabulous guests. Truly this is one of the best live blues albums of all time. However, after 10 Days out, I kinda wanted something different. I have seen the guy play numerous times, and just wanted an album of him playing his songs. Sadly, that isn't what this album delivers as it is chalk full of many other blues classics similar to that of the aforementioned album (it was actually recorded in the wake of it). My gripe aside, this is indeed a wonderful album. The guitar licks are as sick, soothing, and touching as ever, Noah does a great job on the pipes, and a shout out to the multiple key pl
A good solid album. They said it was darker, and they delivered there. However, after a couple listens, nothing really jumps out. Everything is good, but nothing is that great.
A Thousand Suns
Linkin Park is officially a band that has no semblance of its older self remaining. While Minutes to Midnight had at least 1 good track on it, it would be a stretch to say this album has even a decent one. Honestly, I have had all I can take of this band, this is the final nail in the coffin, they ARE dead.
Musically, the best work the band has done. It is on par with The Sickness as my favorite album by the band. The band pushed itself on this album more than any album and it definitely paid off. However, a couple really weak songs keep this song from a higher rating.
