"Can someone please put him in a time machine so he can help Brian Wilson finish Smile?"
|Queens of the Stone Age
"The lyrics in "I'm a designer" and the sliding guitar in "Into the hollow" would have been enough."
"Ed Banger produced some excellent singles but never a solid album, so the Germans helped them out."
The Deep Blue
"With better lyrics and songwriting than the previous solo album Charlotte managed to combine her excellent skill layering vocals and guitars in a pop perfect way. Plus she is sexy."
"I'm a huge UNKLE fan but they have never released a perfect album. This is getting close with tracks like "Broken" and "When things explode". I want an acoustic album next time, please."
Close to Paradise
"Ed Harcourt being a bit more confined, but in a good way, if that makes sense."
Tinfoil on the Windows
"SoSo sounds as if Buck 65 was his dad and while his previous hip-hop albums were good he has made one of the most inspiring creative turns an artist can do with this new effort. Without any pretentious bullpoop he feasts on your heart and is brutally honest and poetic about love in a simple but very effective way. All this with an indie movie soundtrack that makes your heart bleed. How he makes this work is beyond me, I mean, he cant sing and it doesn't matter."
"Yep, I like it and especially since Hail to the Thief was going to be their proper follow up to OK Computer. This is more like it. Oh, and my remix wasn't very good, sorry about that..."
"You take the best tracks from his debut album that came out last year, combine that with the two new EPs "Distance and time" and "Little blue mailbox" and you've got an excellent CD."
From Here We Go Sublime
"My fellow Swedes. They've got a lot of attention because of this album and it's well deserved."
"... And of course my own album plus everyone I forgot..."
