Review-kus.

Originally I wanted to review every album I bought/otherwise listened to this year. Clearly, I've slacked on that. Partially cos there have been a lot of albums that, for whatever reason, I don't feel like writing a full review for. So what I have decided to do is give a few really quick reviews all at once.... in haiku form. Here we go!
And again, I am trying to finish off the reviews of this years albums as quick as possible (without rushing them)... my goal is by the end of the month, so here's hoping!

Rain Machine by Rain Machine (Kyp Malone, from TV On The Radio, solo project)
Sounding like you'd think
Malone has massive talent
Great diversity

Download Hold You Holy by Rain Machine

Masters Of The Burial by Amy Millan (from, of course, Stars and Broken Social Scene)
A beautiful voice
With some good folksy music
But not really great

Download Bury This by Amy Millan

Territory by Two Hours Traffic
A great follow-up
Branching out, not playing safe
Talent keeps growing

Download Happiness Burns by Two Hours Traffic

Backspacer by Pearl Jam
With their ninth album
You know just what to expect
For better or worse

Download Unthought Known by Pearl Jam

The Incident by Porcupine Tree
New double album
Not much of a departure
But still amazing

Download The Blind House by Porcupine Tree

  1. This is great! I am an independent singer songwriter and I learn a lot from reading blogs like this - thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I finally took the time to click that link in your signature, and I'm glad I did!

    I'd never heard of Amy Millan, but I'm really digging that song. The other artists, unfortunately, didn't do anything for me though.
