Retro Reviews: 07/26/11

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (07/25/11)
Today's Retro Reviews post takes a first look into something new: 10 year anniversary reviews. The youngest an album can be to qualify for a "Retro Reviews" is 10 years old, and both of these records celebrated their 10th birthdays within the last two months. We thought we'd start with these two, but count on more retro reviews from time to time.

As someone who wasn't really an active music listener 10 years ago, I still think this is a cool idea. Maybe I'll find a few "new" albums through this.

I guess I just don't get these. What's the point of reviewing 'classic' albums just to call them classic?

Not ripping on your reviews here or in the past with Springsteen. I just don't understand the idea in general.

Like most features, the idea is just to incite a little discussion.

What if we like it but still want to tear your head off and stuff?

I'd like to see some lesser known albums get the retrospective review treatment. I imagine the vast majority of the people on this website have heard and adored these albums for quite some time. Good idea and two great albums to kick it all off with, though.

Oh at first I thought these were reviews dug up from 10 years ago, when the albums were first reviewed. That would have been much cooler.

It's a good idea and those are two genre-defining albums but I will admit it is slightly annoying seeing the amount of current releases that get ignored. It'd be less of an issue if we had less reviews of obvious mainstream pop music such as Beyoncé. Still, I do like looking back so I will be reading both of these.

I remember seeing JEW open for Blink right after these albums came out. THen they played together in the Pop disaster tour with Greenday, that was a great show

I like the idea. Re-review Smashmouth. It's more than ten years at this point, I think, and definitely worth it

Sweet idea for a feature. I'd like to throw some Far, Sunny Day Real Estate and Silverchair into the mix for possible future consideration.
