  1. Millenium by Backstreet Boys ·
    Be as charming as it may, the Backstreet Boys music should be dismissed and mindless pop rants. They may have some singin talent, but they have no creative instincts. The Beatles used a more creative style to write about love in the 60s. Actu...(more)

  2. The Beatles (White Album) by The Beatles ·
    The White Album, though a commercial dissapointment, shows extremely tasteful and creative songwriting skills excercised by the Beatles. "Cry Baby Cry" and "Blackbird" are masterful tapestries of songs. The album manages to maintain a hard edg...(more)

  3. Awake by Godsmack ·
    I was skeptical at first of Godsmack's new release, but I think that it brings out a rocking side of people that they constantly repress. Godsmack rocks it out with ease and great delight.

  4. Supernatural by Santana ·
    A soulful delivery from a great guitarist. Unfortunatley, the eclectic mix on the album works against Santana at points. The overplay of "Smooth" and the bland Eagle-Eye Cherry duet dilute the album. Not to be missed are "Love Of My Life" (Da...(more)

  5. From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah by Nirvana ·
    Nirvana was a live band. Their drive came from the ability for them to create a brillant live show. If anyone has the oppurtunity, pick up "Live, Tonight, Sold Out!!!", a video retrospective of Nirvana concerts. While this album contains many...(more)

  6. Unplugged In New York by Nirvana ·
    Although originally planned for a Nirvana compilation cd, the Unplugged recordings became a somber elegy for Kurt Cobain. The haunting sounds of Lori Goldston on the cello add to Kurt Cobain's dreary vocals. Its a shame people were demanding f...(more)

  7. Pinkerton by Weezer ·
    A sophisticated pop masterpiece from an amazing group. Weezer delivers a morality through their hard rocking pieces. "Tired of Sex" describes the polar opposites men feel when their torn between sex and true love. "Why Bother" is the anguish ...(more)

  8. Weezer by Weezer ·
    An upbeat perspective record from four great musicians!! This cd is sort of an alter-ego to their follow up, Pinkerton. Its still a great composition. Only in Dreams allows you to get lost in the songs repeating bass and guitar lines. Say It...(more)

  9. Significant Other by Limp Bizkit ·
    Limp Bizkit should be renamed "The Fred Durst Show", and then be stricken to VERY limited syndication so we can laugh at how talentless these mothers are. Fred Durst's ego knocks the playing out the window. Maybe this album has some rocking be...(more)

  11. Midnite Vultures by Beck ·
    Beck's Midnite Vultures is another universal record that goes the distance to allow the listener uninterruptable playability. It is very easy to sit back press play and listen to the continous album. Groovy, rock tracks like Sexx Laws, Mixed B...(more)

  12. Best of Lynyrd Skynyrd by Lynyrd Skynyrd ·
    A great compilation from a great band. The only downside is its coporate vaugeness. Instead of buying a homemade cd that the group really packaged, your getting a company's collection of good hits. Still, you are getting their great music.
