The Wanted Outlaw: Willie Nelson in 2014

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 93% (6 Votes)

Willie Nelson is undoubtedly a country singer. He’s also been a favourite of those of us who prefer rock and roll to country music—as a singer, songwriter, musician, and all around cool dude.  Nelson is not your typical country singer, nor does he go for a country-rock sound to span the borders of musical tastes; in fact, if we are to characterize Nelson’s sound it has to be as Willie Nelson. Willie sounds like Willie, ‘can't mistake him. Band of Brothers, his first album of new material since 1996's Spirit (1998s Teatro being mostly reworked old tunes), is a wonderful album though no album is worth that kind of a gap in this talented mans catalogue.

LiveSpan, Not Life Span: Alan Parsons's Greatest Hits Live

Alan Parsons’s LiveSpan is not your average live album, though it is exactly what you might expect from the exacting Alan Parsons—it’s got professionalism and rehearsal written all over it.  That doesn’t mean it’s bad or flat, quite the contrary.  It is clearly live so that old favourites are newly presented, though not reinterpreted.  Songs like “Don’t Answer Me” and “Breakdown” are completely familiar and yet “live enough” to sound new.  LiveSpan is thus a sort of fresh greatest hits.

Expecting to Hate Indie Cindy

I was expecting to hate Indie Cindy by the Pixies because all the reviews I scanned all assured me that it is an unwholesome failure. I expected absolutely nothing when I started listening to it; that’s a completely different experience from my viewing of Jaws, Citizen Kane, The Blair Witch Project, and most of the other movies I’ve found disappointing over the years.  What did those movies have in common? High praise. Indie Cindy? Ask Metacritic and you will find that it hardly managed three out of five stars on the whole.

Asia has a lot of history in the prog-rock arena.  Their latest is Valkyrie/Gravitas, depending upon when you came upon it. Different name, same sound.
