Originally I wanted to review every album I bought/otherwise listened to last 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!
After this I think I only have one more full album review (maybe two, depends on how I'm feeling) then I am done with my '09 albums! Only three months too late... and now I'm behind in my '10 releases... a bloggers work is never done.
Other Truths by Do Make Say Think
Epic wall of sound
Requires many listens
To reach its true depth
Download Do by Do Make Say Think
(notice: track is 10 minutes long. the album has four tracks, but runs 43 minutes!)
Them Crooked Vultures by Them Crooked Vultures (John Paul Jones + Josh Homme + Dave Grohl)
A bit too "queens-y"
I wish they rotated jobs
Even still, quite good.
Download Scumbag Blues
The Persuit by Jamie Cullum
Good, as expected
Usual brand of jazz-pop
Some nifty covers
Download Mixtape by Jamie Cullum
And because I feel like it, here is another track from the album, a cover of Rihanna's Don't Stop The Music.
