Intense and clever, full of imagery and lyrical risks. Quite different than (but as equally satisfying as) the folksy debut album Winter Child.
As indie songwriters go, Kellogg is nearly unrivaled, and this album shows why.
Tremendous - the best of 2007.
Stunning, painful and melodically solid. Hart is a far better musician than even the best of Tonic's material could have predicted.
Catchy, sexy and romantic. Acclaimed pianist McLaughlin throws back to the 80s.
A bit commercialized, but pretty creative for a major label effort.
Charming and well-executed, with moments of startling emotion.
Alex Florez (lead vocals, lead guitar, songwriting) is a remarkable talent.
Bluesy and manic, yet soft.
Guitar prodigy/TV actor/Broadway star Riabko keeps right on charging toward what could only be a goal to retire by 25.
A fun romp through the brain of the scratchy-voiced singer. Just enough punches of attitude to be interesting, not overdone.
Solid harmony, understated lyrics & a healthy dose of true self-reflection. After the blockbuster success of "Boston", who would've thought?
Still stuck on her divorce? Yes. Talented and more genuine than 99% of her cohorts in the process? Also yes. Turn the volume up on this one.
A pleasingly listenable collection of the best of Black, whose humble personality shines through his vocals.
