Album Review: George Harrison - All Things Must Pass4m08s

Album Review: George Harrison - All Things Must Pass

All Things Must Pass is George Harrison's debut solo album of rock music. He had previously released two albums of avant-garde and electronic music. Which, correct me if I'm wrong were used as film soundtracks. After the breakup of The Beatles, George Harrison had built up a catalogue of songs that he had written over the previous years. But because The Beatles only had one or two of Harrison's songs on an album, most of the songs he had written were not recorded. So when the opportunity came up, with the help of Phil Spector, he recorded the songs he had written over the years. And interestingly enough, this ended up being the first number one album on the charts by an ex-Beatle.

Album Review: Jack White - Lazaretto

This is Jack White's second solo album and much of this album has some significant Jack White staples that you hear on a lot of his records. His very distinctive guitar tone shines through on this album and his unique song structure definitely has its place here.But he's also venturing out and incorporating some things he's picked up while spending time in Nashville. Things like pedal steel guitars, fiddles and harmonies that echo classic Nashville sensibility. Highlights: Three Women Lazaretto Just One Drink Entitlement Label: Third Man Records Produced By: Jack White Final Score: 8/10

Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited [Classic Album Review]

This is Bob Dylan's sixth studio album and his second album recording with a full band. When the album that preceded this one, Bringing It All Back Home was released he was heavily criticized for selling out and leaving his folk roots for rock music, he continued to plow through and not let anyone tell him he couldn't. The album's name came from the title track and Highway 61 was the highway that connected his hometown to the Mississippi Delta and had been sung about in many blues songs. Label: Columbia Produced By: Bob Johnston, Tom Wilson

Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence [Album Review]

This is Lana Del Rey's third studio album and her first time working with Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys. With Born To Die receiving mixed reviews, many critics, including myself were hopeful that on her next album she would realize her full potential and put out something really great. This album has a much more stripped down sound with guitars and real drums and is much more interesting to listen to sonically. Highlights: Ultraviolence West Coast The Other Woman Label: Interscope Records, Polydor Records Produced By: Dan Auerbach, Lana Del Rey, Paul Epworth, Lee Foster, Daniel Heath, Greg Kurstin, Rick Nowels, Blake Stanathan Final Score: 4/10
