RYAN ADAMS Easy Tiger CD
*** "I won't say Adams is the best North American singer-songwriter since Neil Young...but I won't say he isn't, either. What I know is there has never been a Ryan Adams record quite as strong and together as Easy Tiger. The songs themselves are beautiful--the lyrics tightly focused and brief, the feeling one of melancholy calm that will probably be a revelation to fans that remember the old, sometimes angry Ryan Adams." - Stephen King. Yeah, seriously.

*** "The first-ever full album of all new instrumental material!"

GORE GORE GIRLS Get The Gore CD
*** "To appreciate this music, you have to have a streak of wildness, a fierce independence of spirit, and an absolute belief in the unusual, the strange, the unpredictable, the offbeat, and even the generally unacceptable." - HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS.

OXBOW The Narcotic Story CD
*** "The sixth chambered installment of a suiciide that plays itself out on the hustings of a substanced and principled addiction to failure while the band plays on." Yes!
