Nov 24 Ryan Adams At Hammerstein Ballroom, Saturday, November 22nd, 2014, Reviewed
“Cold Roses” was glorious country folk, “Dear Chicago” blues pop, “The Door” as great as anything in his repertoire, “Lucky Now” a case made for Ashes And Fire… the set less had momentum and more was steadily perfect with horrendous interruptions

Nov 24 Listen To ‘In My Head’, A New Song By Brooklyn-Based Blue & Gold
‘Musically, we captured that with some heavy sounds and a lot of noise. I wrote the song last summer, and when I brought it to the band, it really came to life. I think the end product encompasses the impatience, unrequited feelings, and heartbreak in the lyrics.’

Nov 24 Hear, My Friends : David Brouillette’s Five Songs
Johnny Sincere – Deadbeat Poets – Nice rock and roller, old fashioned in a positive way. The piano, when it comes out of the mix from time to time is very Jamey Johnson. A clever one song rock opera takes you back to 1963 and keeps you there – B+

We lost the great director Mike Nichols, the man behind “The Graduate”, “Carnal Knowledge” and “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf” at the movies and just two I really loved from Broadway “The Play That I wrote” and “Spamalot”. David Ruffin, the temptations lead singer’s kid brother and Motown singer who had a smash with “What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted” also died . On a personal level, rock nyc’s Edward Huerta wife Misty died at the age of forty

Nov 24 UK Top 10 Albums: 11-30-14
I have no problem with 1D selling a mindboggling 142K units, I have a problem with the UK’s penchant for lousy faux-opera like this abysmal album in at # 10. what they like about it, I can’t tell you. I blame BBC 4. Don’t let the eyelashes fool ya, Jenkins is the spawn of Satan

Nov 24 UK Top 10 Singles: 11-30-14
I have two songs this year I’d include in the “A++ List” -one is “Blank Space”. But at the top? This insanely lousy song should be taken out and shot and dawn. Turn it off and listen to Chipmunk contemporary Wretch 32, the excellent rapper from the London projects.

Nov 23 Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge Compares Streaming Music To Killing Elephants?
‘I tell people condoning streaming is like condoning the Chinese that are killing elephants for their tusks and carving ivory statues. It’s cool to put on your shelf but if you really think about what you’re doing it sucks’

Nov 23 Anne Husick’s “The Other” Side Reviewed
“The Other Side” has a horn solo to die for and keyboards in the center and a strong gravitational pull of a beat meanwhile Anne’s vocal is a real beauty

Nov 23 Dave Grohl On Arctic Monkeys And Smoking Pot While Watching The Kardashians
I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.’

Nov 23 Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks week of November 24th, 2014
The setlist concentrates on the past 15 years to the exclusion of the golden age. Also interestingly enough, I couldn’t care less. In my opinion, Dylan has never had a fallow period but even so, this has been an incredible late period for the poet laureate on the 20th and 21st century.

1. Irreplaceable – Beyonce – “To the left, to the left…” . One of the woman’s best song is a bitter break up things. The words refer to the boxes where She wants Him to put the boxes he is filling with his belongings. Apparently, Beyonce has had enough of his two timing. For such a brittle parting it is a catchy singalong and an instant classic. At Roseland a coupla years ago it was performed by the audience. Which kinda sucks – Grade: A

My Chemical Romance Conventional Weapons – “Number Three Single”, Reviewed

The third installment of My Chemical Romance’s Conventional Weapons consists of the tracks “The World is Ugly” and “The Light behind Your Eyes” and, while making sense in the grand scheme of the album, the songs make Number Three as a single fall a bit flat. Almost every album in the history of ever has at least one or two slow songs thrown into the middle of the album to create an element of diversity. The tracks on Number Threeappear to be MCR’s slow songs for Conventional Weapons. And, while the problem isn’t that the two slow songs were put on the same single, “The World is Ugly” and “The Light behind Your Eyes” just aren’t spectacular sad songs when paired.
