Green Day – ¡Uno!

      Stephen Thomas Erlewine: ‘Green Day’s new millennium elevation to Very Important Band is so complete that when they decided to return to their frivolous punk roots they couldn’t do it in a small way. They started to knock out a bunch of garage punk tunes and wound up with not one but […]

Half Moon Run – Dark Eyes

Half Moon Run – Dark Eyes AMG Review: Richly detailed, alternately rugged and studio slick, the airy and expressive debut album from Montreal’s Half Moon Run – Dark Eyes is caught somewhere between the pastoral, harmony-laden northwoods folk of Fleet Foxes, the hazy classic rock meanderings of Band of Horses, and the soulful midnight din […]

Anglagard – Viljans Oga

Anglagard – Viljans Oga Progarchives: The return of Änglagård: Viljans Oga sees the band admirably developing their sound.

[…]

How To Dress Well – Total Loss

 How To Dress Well – Total Loss AMG Review: On his second How To Dress Well – Total Loss, Tom Krell abandons much of the murky mystery of his debut, Love Remains, undescoring the R&B roots of his music. It’s a bold move, one that puts him in territory closer to the xx than where he […]

John Mayer – Born and Raised

John Mayer – Born and Raised AMG Review: Nothing halts the momentum of a career like a few poorly chosen words to the press. Take John Mayer, who in 2009 still seemed like the quintessential modern lothario, singing sweet songs of love and seducing starlets all across Hollywood. Then at the dawn of 2010, just months […]

Imagine Dragons – Night Visions

Imagine Dragons – Night Visions AMG Review : Historically, there’s a progression that bands usually follow before their sound goes full-on arena rock. Things will start small and gritty, and then as the fame and crowds build, the sound changes to match the massiveness of the venues. However, on their debut album Imagine Dragons – Night […]
