I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a new version of "Watch This Dave" on Apocalyptic Love, the whole three and a half minute track of jamming had me playing air guitar the first time I heard it. I highly recommend Apocalyptic Love. Superb!4.0 excellentJohn Mayer Battle StudiesSix60 Six603.5 greatAvicii TrueGarbage Not Your Kind Of PeopleOh how I've missed you Garbage! Favourites are Automatic Systematic Habit, Man On a Wire and Big Bright World. I like how Garbage has maintained a similar feel here and tried some new tricks at the same time.John Mayer Born and RaisedOne undisputed John Mayer fact is his brilliance on the guitar; he's also a decent song writer. Both remain apparent throughout Born and Raised. It's nice to see Mayer trying on some snake skins instead of his comfortable sneakers. The country feel Mayer has given Born and Raised is a credit to him. Continuum was my favourite release, but it's great to hear a new range of vocals from Mayer.Michael Jackson MichaelTrain California 37I'm not sure why so many people have dropped the 1 bomb on Train for this one. I quite enjoyed the album; especially their single Drive By and This'll be My Year. In fact I'd say it's one of their best releases.3.0 goodAlanis Morissette Havoc and Bright LightsCherri Bomb This Is the End of ControlChris Brown FortuneSome nice hits on this one. "Turn up the music" and "Don't wake me up" were my favourites.Justin Bieber BelieveYeah alright, JB is still spending most of his time singing to teenage girls. This maybe his stepping stone out of it and once the tween BS has been belted out of him, we may start to see better things. I'm certainly no fan, however look forward to seeing Justin grow. Lets hope he is given the chance, because in reality he would likely have chosen to change genres a while ago.Lostprophets WeaponsMichael Jackson This Is ItNickelback Here and NowI love music loud, combine that with Chad Kroeger's voice and a bottle of Jim Beam, you'll find me the following morning waking up on the media room floor covered in my own vomit. I'm not sure when Nickelback created a mob willing to chase them around with pitchforks, and it's a shame because throw some Nickelback on in the right environment and you'll have everyone chanting lyrics religiously. "Here and Now" is definitely not Nickelbacks best album, but it has a place. "When We Stand Together" is the token feel good Nickelback song, likely to be the most popular. The votes here are disgraceful and frankly, you can go get fucked! Sheep..Owl City Shooting Star2.5 averageAdam Lambert TrespassingCatchy tunes, but Adam has done nothing new here. I guess he looks less like a chick on his front cover this time though.Frank Ocean Channel OrangeMichael Jackson InvincibleUsher Looking 4 MyselfSuprisingly boring for Usher, I hope he found himself. I won't be buying this.2.0 poorDeuce Nine LivesRihanna Talk That TalkWhy does Rihanna insist on grunting "yeh yeh yeh" in almost every song? Even when you think you're free from it for one song, it's hidden somewhere sneaky as if she is trademarking her work. Well Rihanna, perhaps it was the repetitive chants in Umbrella that punched me in the gentles but every time "ella ella" or "yeh yeh yeh" is moaned out of tune to fill in blanks, I feel like I'm being branded and cringe a little. "We Found Love" is the winner here. The rest will burn through the clubs one single at a time and the drunks won't even remember them.1.0 awfulJohn Mayer Paradise ValleyVery similar to Born and Raised, which was just as disappointing. I used to be excited when the new John Mayer album was being released. Not anymore. Do what you're good at John.
