Review: Johnathan IS thee best. awesome interview!

Lawrence, Tennesse 07/09/08
artist: Johnny Cash
Review: This quote says it all about the power and faith of Johnny Cash!
Cash: I worked on this album in spite of everything. I found strength to work just to spite this disease. Sometimes I came to the studio and I couldn't sing - I came in with no voice when I could have stayed at home and pouted in my room and cried in my beer or my milk, but I didn't let that happen. I came in and opened up my mouth and tried to let something come out. There are tracks I recorded when that was the last thing in the world I thought I could do, and those are the ones that have the feeling and the fire and the fervor and the passion - a great deal of strength came out of that weakness

Jan, Hammond, IN 07/08/08

mark 07/04/08
artist: griffin
Review: Great book! Can you tell us more about Ed&Fred

Bryan Alexander, San Francisco, CA 07/04/08
artist: erasure
Review: You are obviously not a well rehearsed critic as you fail to follow the golden rule: Never, ever let your personal views affect you professional review. Regardless, personally, erasure's self-titled album remains my favorite ever. You will only enjoy it when you give in to it. Cowboy was a wonderful jaunt and if you dressed the part at the concert, you would have had a blast!! Finally, Other People's Songs would never be my favorite of any erasure albums, but it is not nearly as bad as you say. In fact, it does have many high points. They are an electric band after all, so to blast them for using electronics is idiotic. I do, however, agree with your review of Video Killed The Radio Star. Just please put your personal feeling aside when reviewing anything. It makes one look unprofessional.

steven, nyc, ny 07/03/08

Karin, Outside your window 06/19/08
artist: Axl Rose
Review: Axl may have his faults (don't we all?) but he is a truly beautiful person. Had the chance to meet him and talk with him for about 25 minutes. He is exceptionally talented and very warm hearted. I think the media (and people like you) create a false image of him.

Rushian, NY 06/18/08
artist: Rush
Review: I guess you added that wiseacre comment about self-indulgence because you thought it would sound intelligent and balance your review. Mission not accomplished. Instrumentals have always been an integral part of what this band is about. Why would you want to "streamline" or shorten a live Rush show???? Do you really think that only "die-hards" enjoy this band's instrumental prowess?

constance, buffalo, new york 06/18/08
artist: isaac hayes
Review: it's too bad that isaac is saddled with his illness - he used to be so vibrant on stage.

carp, chicago, il 06/16/08
artist: rush
Review: My daughter and I went--we were one of the very few females there. I would say that if someone wanted a man, listen to Tom Sawyer and pretend to be a Rush fan. I still miss Closer to the Heart and Working Man, but I think they played a wide range. Very impressive lights and stuff with their music, but frankly, I could just hear the music and be happy. Tom Sawyer live is just incredible.

haley, lake geneva 06/16/08
