    Gram Parsons: Sacred Hearts and Fallen Angels: The Gram Parsons Anthology

One gets the sense Gram Parsons knew he wouldn't be around very long. This is music of distinction, often dark and always poignant, and whether Gram Parsons sings original music or covers a classic, his pure heart makes it his own. His genius is in making music that speaks to a certain frame of mind, a mood expressed as loneliness sung.

Manic Street Preachers: Know Your Enemy

Does the group once famously dubbed the most important British band of the ‘90s have anything left for us to listen to in this new millennium?


Modest Mouse: Sad Sappy Sucker

Taken on its own merits, Sad Sappy Sucker is pretty good, but the out-and-out strangeness of it all and the fact that it doesn’t hold together as a real album may throw off the uninitiated.
