Re: “Album Review: Tiffany Couture, 'She Still Rises'

I've known Tiffany and her family my whole life. Her great grandmother and my mother we're best friends. I was one of the many people who where at the airport the day Tiffany arrived in her little pink dress. She has been loved by so many people. She has grown into such a beautiful singer and person.

Re: “Album Review: Lord Silky, 'We Used to Be Friends'

This isn't funny! Someone put some marijuanas in my coffee one morning and I went all loopy. I think it was one of my grandboys. They're always listening to this Lord Silkies band....

Re: “Album Review: Chad Hollister Band, 'Stop the World'

Wow! .... Jordan.....Wow-- I will try to keep this commentary classy because that rule obviously does not apply to your review. I did some due diligence on you. I wanted to make sure I was not judging you on a bad break up, boil lanced kinda day. However, I think you were having a bad day!

I PROMISE not to make this too cumbayaee, rainbowie or cabbage patch cuddly. His splendidly, I mean Splenda, no I mean Truvia like positive flair might be too tough for you to take. I am sure your horror show negative Nellie lyrics would be insightful.

Along with VPR, 2000+ screaming fans at Battery park, Tom Petty, Paul Simon, ZZ Top, Blues Traveler, and his 10 co-creating musicians.. I am a Chad Hollister fan. BTW-historical incredibly successful band analogies are an insult?

It sounds like he may not be your cup of Techno but seriously-- your RUDE! As a critic, is your goal to humiliate yourself. Thanks for the " Its vibrant horn and string arrangements are detailed and compelling. The guitar tones are perfectly calibrated, Hollister's vocals are strong and pristine, and an overall sheen suggests quality craftsmanship in the studio." However your "saccharine Schlock rock and diabetic coma ensuing comments-- REALLY? They pay you for that?

Your mommy issues bleed thru in this review and if you listened past your wax filled earbuds you might hear something that warms your callous soul We all feel the same about him. If you could hear past your Fox News reality show that was your spew, this was a despicable review of a successful local.

Todays tip REWIND & REPEAT! Try this one again! The masses that follow the Burlington born musician Chad Hollister around New England and this country disagree with your very inexperienced ear.

Re: “Album Review: Ben Dunham, 'Backline Collective'

The tag on this article for Ben is spelled incorrectly. It says Ben Durham, but should be "Ben Dunham".

Re: “Album Review: NODON, 'Covfefe EP'

Hmm, when I think of punk rock, I think of this sound. This band "No, Dawn" is really capturing the "essence", as it were, of what it means to be an anti-political punker. I just truly enjoy how they dislike politics on the whole.

Re: “Album Review: Bostjan Zupancic, 'MicroMetal Volume II'

I happen to love Give In. It was written for me. :D I do prefer Russ', ahem. Bostjan's, rougher vocals over the softer ones though.

Re: “Corey Ryder, Rooted in the Country

Andy Williams rocks solid balls of awesomeness. Poor choice for your example.

Re: “Banana Schlitz, Sports & Milk

I bought this album and think it is quite good. I'm no music expert and am not familiar with Cooley's other work, but I don't think the songs are particularly retro. This review doesn't mention All Bad News or Silver Dollars, which I think are the best songs.

Re: “Willy Lindner, Life, Still, With Mandolin

Shannon's "Starlight" always moistens my eyes, and I don't know why. Willie''s intro to the song is the definition of tasteful imaginative composition. But I thought the same thing! Where has this album been since I first heard Willie sing "Donna on Horseback" around three decades ago.

Re: “Binger, Skeptics

Skeptics is an album that shows the maturity of a musical band in the same mode as the Police. Shakir's bass is reminiscent of Sting's, except with more musical range. Brady's guitar is electric and Muzzy's drumming is cool and does not overshadow Shak's bass or Brady's guitar.
Abstraction is what it implies and showcases the group's musical range and dexterity while the quick fire rapping from Shak fits it well. Strings, Look at the Lilacs and If I Knew are the other stand out songs. Guest vocalist Steph challenges both Shak and Brady to up their lyrical game. Overall Skeptics is a better album than it seems at first and will grow on you. It is musically and lyrically complex and not the run of the mill noisy, throw away albums that you will soon forget. Binger should be complimented for their courage for staying true to their music.
