Tragedy of the Commons

Self-Released

A carnival of joy that is a reminder of how much fun Weezer used to be.

Life After the Lie

Double Plus Good Records

For anybody who really wants to listen to an album just to see if they can get from beginning to end. It’s a random, jumbled cacophonous mess.

The Temptations

#1’s

Motown Records/Buzztone Inc.

The Temptations are one of Motown’s finest and it shows in this collection of their #1 hits. From the driving “Get Ready” to the ubiquitous “My Girl” to their collaboration with Diana Ross and the Supremes on “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me,” This quintet epitomized the Motown sound. Their songs are still used in countless movies, even in movie titles (i.e. “My Girl”). The Temptations are one of the best soul groups of all time and this collection is essential for any fan of R&B and Soul. And if you think that Ciara and Pretty Rickey are “true” R&B, then pick this CD up and listen to what real R&B is.

Break EP

TVT Records

Interpol + enough uppers to make it seem like your singing about something postitive + Scottish background = Catchier than herpes without the side effects.

…Until the World is Beautiful

Five03 Records

Gloomy rock (ala Joy Division and Interpol) that makes you want to be depressed.

The Prix

Musebox Records

70’s throwback rock that is only 3 songs long, and with the exception of “It’s All in the Way That You Trip,” is more annoying than Good Charlotte.
