NEKO CASE Middle Cyclone CD
*** "The fifteen-track Middle Cyclone is Neko Case's first release since 2006's Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. Featuring M.

FRIGHTENED RABBIT The Midnight Organ Fight CD
*** PITCHFORK says "Full of rousing barnburners that flicker with soul, ballads that ache with masculine vulnerability, and Frightened Rabbit's best songs yet." SPIN also liked it.

ISAAC HAYES Black Moses 2xCD
*** "Isaac Hayes' landmark 1971 double disc set is now reintroduced with completely restored album packaging, expanded liner notes, rare photographs, and digitally remastered sound."

U2 No Line On The Horizon CD
*** "The band’s 12th studio album calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite."
