Wye Oak Civilian4.5
I love Wye Oak and I love this album, but opposed to what I thought, I think I like "The Knot" better than this one. "Civilian" is a strong, dream-like, chill album, but I feel as though The Knot has a bit more 'epic-ness' of a feel. r2 days later: I changed my mind. This album is all I listen to lately, it grows on me every time.

I'm re-rating this album to a 5. I can listen to the album over and over and over and over again. Esp in times where life is pure shit, this album delivers all sortsa hope. AND Marcus's voice... mm. Love it.

I couldn't wait for the album to end. She sounds like a little girl, and has a voice you want to tune out completely due to annoyance. I do not understand the high ratings. She does have a couple of good tracks on this album, but no more than that. Disliked..

I was expecting better, she has a couple of great tracks, but the album is too "pop" sounding, gets on my nerves.

Dude. Really? Really. I was expecting SO much more after hearing "Break my Body." The album was not good, definitely a let down, though not terrible by any means. Just.. disappointing.

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum Of Natural History3.5
Most amazing band! Sleepytime Gorilla Museum produces the kind of music that I think will be (and definitely should be) studied in the future as part of music education. The review didn't mention that member Dan Rathbun makes a variety of hand-made instruments which provides much of their unique sound. Listening to Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is an inspiring experience that leaves me in awe every time. There are, of course, certain songs I like better than others, but even tracks that aren't on the top of my list are cool to piece out and learn from--which has contributed to an acquired liking of certain tracks. So much raw, hauntingly beautiful talent in this music. Phenomenal band!

There are two songs I love on this album and one song I like alright. Disappointment in all honesty, their single "Cold" is probably the only song I'll continue to listen to. Could've been a better album if they had put more work into it I think. I do, however, think Crossfade will get better over the years, and I have never seen them live so I can't speak there.

Tori Amos Boys for Pele4.5
Just picked up this album (finally) after being recommended it by those who know how much I Love "Little Earthquakes." I've watched various live performances from this album and was impressed (It's Tori, of course I'm going to be impressed, she's incredible--esp live) but didn't know how the actual album would compare. Well, apparently all who recommended me "Boys for Pele" knew what they were talking about, I can't get enough of it. Tori never does cease to amaze me.

I'll be another to say that if you are a fan of "Little Earthquakes" it is safe to assume you will love "Boys for Pele."
