Adams Ryan & Cardinals - Cold Roses ($12.99) [Sent reeling by the one-two punch Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes delivered with I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and Digital Ash In A Digital Urn, Ryan Adams vowed to strike back in 2005 with three of his own releases. The first--a double album, no less--sees the attention-seeking former Whiskeytown singer casting off both the raucous guitars of 2003's Rock N Roll and the rainy-day ballads of the same year's Love Is Hell in favor of the more introspective moments and rustic textures of 2000's Heartbreaker. He's snuck in at least one epic with 'Meadowlake Street' and one potential radio hit with the twangy 'Let It Ride,' while the rest of the set is mostly packed with bleary-eyed laments that feel all too mannered after spending the last few years revealing his naked pop ambition in full. No doubt Adams will make up for it with the next one.]

Matthews Dave - Stand Up ($12.99) [Don't let the headless CGI dancer on the cover fool you. While Stand Up has a more organic feel than 2001's radio-ready Everyday, it is hardly an invocation for carefree days spent twirling on the grass. Instead it is a call to arms that carries over much of the insurrectionary spirit the Dave Matthews Band brought to 2004's Vote For Change Tour. Matthews, sounding rawer than ever, swerves between optimism ('To change the world you only start with one step,' he sings on 'You Might Die Trying') and angst ('See the man with the bomb in his hand/Everybody wake up,' goes 'Everybody Wake Up [Our Finest Hour Arrives]'), while producer Mark Baston, best known for his small-time work with big-name pop acts like Beyonce and 50 Cent, responds by putting the marching band rhythms of Carter Beauford in the front and galvanizing the music with a crisp R&B edge, most evident in the totally--okay, partially--crunk 'Stolen Away On 55th & 3rd.]

Morrison Van - Magic Time ($11.99) [Like a human infusion of chamomile tea, hearing Van Morrison's voice has the ability to instantly to soothe even the most stressed listener. That said, some of his releases have been so sedentary that they muted the '60s soul influences that had been a part of Van's joyful appeal. Not so with Magic Time, a wonderful balance of groove and smoothness, with a 'live off the floor' feel evident throughout the disc. Right off the top, 'Stranded' shows Van at his crooner best; relaxed, present, and joyful. 'Celtic New Year' comes next, with a very Astral Weeks feel, leading one to believe that this disc might be sedentary through and throughuntil 'Keep Mediocrity at Bay' kicks in, a feisty blues romp that shows that in his sixties, Morrison still has the sass of his best previous days.]

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth ($12.99) [trent reznor comes back with yet another masterpiece. this album is great from start to finish. reznor has never disappointed me before and he continues to blow me away with his ideas and talent. the album is filled with emotion and anger, and the lyrics are great. any NIN fan should go and pick this one up right now because it is amazing! another great album from the twisted mind of trent reznor. ]

Plant Robert / Strange Sensation - Mighty Rearranger ($14.99) [In the weeks leading up to this album's release, Robert Plant was the unlikely hit at the South By Southwest music festival, delivering such a scorching set with his band the Strange Sensation rockers a quarter of his age simply got back on their planes and went home without playing a note. This can most likely be attributed to the fact that, unlike most his classic rock peers, Plant has rarely settled since moving on from the Led Zeppelin behemoth. Over the course of eight solo albums, he's experimented with doo-wop, synth-pop and even drum'n' bass. But it's only at 56 that the Golden God is hitting his stride. On 'Tin Pan Valley,' he sings, 'My peers may flirt with cabaret/ Some fake the rebel yell/ Me, I'm moving up higher ground/ I must escape their hell.' Mighty Rearranger draws out the best qualities of his otherworldly voice, surrounding it with rich Middle Eastern textures, soft blues accents and gorgeous psychedelic swooshes. It's in keeping with the spirit of 2002's exotic and lush Dreamland, only it sounds more refined.]

System Of A Down - Mezmerize ($12.99) [This is amazing! System of a Down never stop making incredible music. Even Steal This Album! was pretty good considering that album was made up of songs that weren't 'good enough' for their other CD's. The first song I heard by them was Chop Suey! and after that I was hooked. Their self-titled album was awesome and so was Toxicity. Now, we've got Mezmerize. Definitley different from their previous stuff (Not in a bad way though), this album stuck to me right after I had heard Soldier Side- Intro. Every song is unique in its own way. ]
