Yes Tales from Topographic Oceans
Yes is probably the preferred and appropriate band to plan and attempt this kind of behemoth, and I appreciate ambition and concepts and uninhibited works as much as the next guy, but when 80% of 80 minutes sounds bored and drawn out, a musicians pet project becomes a listeners chore.

Sonic Youth Sonic Nurse
They almost make greatness sound dull at this point, or maybe it's just effortless by now, who knows. New level of skill realized in non-cacophonous guitar intertwining, Malkmus-level of skill reached in nonchalant nonsense vocal a la Thurston.

Nelly Furtado Loose
Out of the multitude of audiences that are being catered to here, the Timbaland-assisted pop enthusiasts will come away the most pleased - not really surprised or enthralled, but pleased. Not quite sure how the God ballad and the random Spanish stuff really fit into all this, but hey, I've heard worse.

D.R.I. Violent Pacification
A fun and focused EP whose mere 4 tracks are tighter than anything on Dirty Rotten LP. Cleaner-sounding as well but it mostly works in their favor. Certainly no space wasted - it's just over too soon.

Nas It Was Written
Smooth/somber/polished beats are mostly tolerable but leaning towards dull, Dre cameo sounds forced, comes off as somewhat safe and pompous; these are the expected effects of commerciality. The rapping and story-telling are exhaustingly great enough to make it worth it.
