"The Ballad of Mona Lisa" was the closest thing they ever got to sounding like Fever. V&V was pretty much on point to what their second album would've sounded like had Ryan not got his way with the...

I would have stuck The Killers somewhere in there. Whether it's Hot Fuss or Sam's Town, they deserved a spot.

Well hello IATM meets Third Eye Blind new song! The HD version of this song will destroy my hears in a good way. The drums aren't bad by any means, but Tony did have a signature style that is...

Not a bad video. This album is certainly a breath of fresh air after Codes and Keys. Narrow Stairs was......ok. I feel like Ben and the gang are getting more personal and in touch with their sound...

Showbox SODO will be a killer venue for them. Might have to get tix.

Ironic how Begin Again felt like a breath of fresh air for Adam and yet he continues to produce crap like this for Maroon 5.

I really am not asking for a Songs About Jane clone of a new album, but these guys are breaking ground on creating even more terrible music than before. Soon a Maroon 5 song will be "LOVE LOVE LOVE"...

It was a great performance but Ben didn't look like he wanted to be there. He kept as far back away from the mic as he could. Not the first person to do that but it seemed a little off. Maybe because...

Agreed. The way I see it, Almost Here is their most popular record for some very good reasons. Solid album.

Santi is the dark horse of their discography. It's in your face and the different melodies...

If I was their A&R guy (dream job right there) I would place the singles like so:

"Uma Thurman" Feb/March into early April

Oh this will be non-stop airplay. No cussing (seriously thought he wouldn't say "trash" in his first verses) and it features Paul McCartney with pop stars, what's not to love?

I've been listening to the FOB "Welcome to the New Administration" Mixtape from 2008 recently. 100% full hip hop influences there but it worked quite well. Nothing surprising here, even though Wiz is...

Who in their right mind would hold ill will against him for this decision. I'd want a month off after something this tragic happens. You'll be in my prayers buddy.

Same here. The country albums were ok, but blah compared to the excellent Battle Studies.

I should have said initially when I listen to a new album. I like to just go through a rundown of the songs I like and the songs I don't. Figure out what the band was trying to accomplish with this...

There's three things that can happen when I listen to a band's new record:

1. The album isn't great but there's a few strong songs here and there. (see: almost every album that comes out these...

Up All Night was fantastic. He's been getting introspective as of late. Well, for Owl City anyway.

I keep thinking this thought as well. The drums aren't bad on this song, but LP's absence is very much noticeable. Hence the electronics to sort of take your mind off of that fact. This song suffers...

I give you the 2004 version of "Wasted Years" from the Friday the 13th Live Album (which is great btw):

I'm curious what everyone thought of the "re-recording" of "Wasted Years" on Overexposed. That to me proved they weren't interested in crafting well sounding songs. I mean the blue print for that...
