Frightened Rabbit – The Winter Of Mixed Drinks

Frightened Rabbit - The Winter Of Mixed Drinks
Rating: 3.5
Release Date: Mar 9, 2010
Critic Review
Purchase

What started as a trio has grown into a quintet. On their third studio album, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, Scottish indie rock/folk band Frightened Rabbit has expanded their numbers and their sound. They’ve evolved closer to the rock spectrum from their folky beginnings.
While more sophisticated and electronic, some of the melody the group is known has become lost.

After finally hitting big with Final Straw, the pressure was on to produce again. Showing cool under pressure, Snow Patrol triumphs with Eyes Open. The album is heart-warming and melodic, yet powerful and audacious.

Dean Gray – American Edit

Dean Gray - American Edit
Rating: 3.5
Release Date: 11/18/2005
Download (Google/Torrent)

Dean Gray’s American Edit is a mashup of Green Day’s new album American Idiot. Only 10 days after it’s release, Green Day’s label, Warner Records, despite the fact that Edit was released as an internet only release with no commercial gain, sent a cease and desist to Gray. The shutdown of his site and fan outrage led to “Gray Tuesday,” a social protest in which websites illegally hosted the mp3s for a day. The album itself is a unique, creative and addictive.

Coldplay – X&Y

Coldplay - X&Y
Rating: 3.0

Critic Review
Purchase

After nearly three years and several scrapped tracks, Coldplay third album has arrived. With X&Y there is no junior slump. The album features confident, genuine tunes that are simply beautiful. Chris Martin and company deliver emotional songs about everyday life, love and loss.
