Soundgarden - King Animal B
This is Soundgarden's first batch of new music in 16 years. King Animal doesn't possess the same urgency of their earlier material, but it's solid nonetheless.
Nas - Life is Good B-
Yet, another hip hop album that would benefit from more weeding. Sometimes less is more.
Ben Folds Five - The Sound of the Life of the Mind C
The songs "Sky High" & "Away When You Were Here" jumped out at me right way... and I'm still figuring out the rest.
Dinosaur Jr. - I Bet On Sky B
DJ isn't usually a slow burn for me, but this one is... and it's getting better with each listen.
