Junk Mail: Zac Brown Band 'Jekyll + Hyde' Album Review

Junk Mail: Alabama Shakes, 'Sound & Color' Album Review

Hands down a great sophomore record form a band that already seems regal. I almost always forget that don't have a handful of albums barreling behind them. Sound & Color is going to sound great live, much like Boys & Girls did. Some duds in here, ...

Junk Mail: Matt and Kim 'New Glow' Album Review

This week, like most weeks, is really dragging for me. But Matt and Kim's new album New Glow kind of helped me pep up this morning and get to work. As far as I'm aware, this is a band that's always been infectiously peppy, maybe almost annoyingly so. ...

Junk Mail: Wale, 'The Album About Nothing' Review

The Album About Nothing, at the end of the day, is more interesting in its concept than in its execution. I really appreciate the lyricism and thought that Wale put into each of these songs, but there is little else to latch on to. Unlike Seinfeld ...

Junk Mail: 'Empire' Season 1 Original Soundtrack Review

The Empire Original Soundtrack works great as a soundtrack to a musical soap opera. Outside of the show's context, most of the songs wouldn't have much commercial viability in today's market. So the show could definitely benefit from following ...

Junk Mail: Kelly Clarkson, 'Piece By Piece' Album Review

Piece By Piece is solid, there's no doubting that, but there's no real risk here from Kelly Clarkson, and thus, it's hard to give her any real reward. While she shines in what she knows ("Heartbeat Song"), there's too much of that and too little of ...
