CD Reviews


Patton Oswalt

Werewolves and Lollipops | Sub Pop
Oswalt takes aim at Middle American targets in a conversational manner that suggests he knows he’s among friends.
By: RYAN STEWART  |  July 23, 2007


Matt and Kim

Matt and Kim | iheartcomix
Not unlike a bottled Frappuccino, Matt & Kim’s homonymous debut is better than no Matt & Kim at all.
By: MIKAEL WOOD  |  July 17, 2007


John Doe

A Year in the Wilderness | Yep Roc
The seminal American punk band X specialized in songs about love on the skids or on skid row.
By: TED DROZDOWSKI  |  July 17, 2007


Nick Drake

Family Tree | Tsunami
Family Tree is not a Ramones album.
By: JEFF TAMARKIN  |  July 17, 2007


Pan Sonic

Katodivaihe | Blast First
Pan Sonic’s Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen have lost little of their power to vex and amaze.
By: SUSANNA BOLLE  |  July 17, 2007



From Nothin' to Somethin' | Def Jam
Maybe he should spend less time spelling out his name.
By: DOMINIQUE HENDELMAN  |  July 17, 2007


Theryl “Houseman” Declouet

The Truth Iz Out | Self-released
It sounds as if the singer had been through some relationship trouble, or at least had been listening to a lot of later Marvin Gaye.
By: BRETT MILANO  |  July 17, 2007


André Previn

Alone | Emarcy
André Previn has been an acclaimed professional jazz musician since he was a teenager.
By: JON GARELICK  |  July 10, 2007



The Boy with No Name | Epic
Travis defy the very concept of surprise; their tasteful, tuneful guitar pop is about comfort and safety and always knowing what’s happening next.
By: MIKAEL WOOD  |  July 10, 2007


Bonde do Rolê

With Lasers | Domino
You’re better off letting Bonde do Rolê drop their glorious little dumb bombs directly on your id.
By: RENÉ SPENCER SALLER  |  July 09, 2007


Papa Grows Funk

Mr. Patterson's Hat | Funky Krewe
The third studio album by this popular New Orleans funk/jam band is in a sense their first studio album.
By: BRETT MILANO  |  July 09, 2007


Lloyd Thayer: The Bumper Pool Diaries

Local stringed-instrument devotee Lloyd Thayer completes his mission to record and release three albums in one year.
By: TED DROZDOWSKI  |  July 09, 2007



Two Sevens Clash | Shanachie
The prophecy of Apocalypse in the title single from this legendary session was enough to bring Kingston to a standstill on July 7, 1977.
By: AMANDA PRESTON  |  July 09, 2007



The Album | Warner Bros.
If Transformers the film is a feature-length GM commercial with a sci-fi narrative, then Transformers: The Album is equally shameless.
By: MATT ASHARE  |  July 03, 2007


Savath and Savalas

Golden Pollen | Anti-
This is a gloriously glassy album brimming with Hispanic sounds and surfer-boy harmonies.
By: DAVID DAY  |  July 02, 2007


Joan as Police Woman

Real Life | Cheap Lullaby
Ex-Bostonian Joan Wasser spent more than a decade carrying other musicians’ trains.
By: RENÉ SPENCER SALLER  |  July 02, 2007


Fujiya and Miyagi

Transparent Things | Deaf Dumb + Blind
With Fujiya & Miyagi, things are not always as they seem.
By: SUSANNA BOLLE  |  July 02, 2007


Dolores O’Riordan

Are You Listening? | Sanctuary
Dolores O’Riordan won a place in alt-rock history for her yodel-streaked vocal stylings, not her penetrating insights.
By: MIKAEL WOOD  |  July 02, 2007


The Dynamites Featuring Charlie Walker

Kaboom! | Outta Sight
Live, Nashville’s Dynamites are a sweaty bathtub of bubbling, wall-to-wall funk.
By: TED DROZDOWSKI  |  July 02, 2007


Pharaoh's Daughter

Haran | oy!hoo
Thousand-year-old Sabbath songs, Hebrew- and Aramaic-language vocals, and Kabalistic poetry — exactly what comes to mind when you think hip downtown band, right?
By: JEFF TAMARKIN  |  July 02, 2007


The Beau Brummels

Beau Brummels '66 | Collectors Choice
This little oddity owes its life to a classically bad mid-’60s A&R decision.
By: BRETT MILANO  |  June 27, 2007
