Chris Cornell-Scream

Chris Cornell Scream:

A pleasant enough radio friendly album. The whole album, was produced by Timbaland, who largely sticks to the pop beats that have become his signature. Cornell’s voice is in good shape, and he sounds more enthusiastic here than on much of his work with Audioslave. He plays the role of pop singer surprisingly well, spitting generic pop lyrics with gusto. Anyone looking for any hint of the vitality in Cornell’s albums with Soundgarden, or even Audioslave’s stronger singles will be disappointed. Anyone looking for a radio friendly dance album, whose vocalist happens to be Chris Cornell, will probably be pretty satisfied.

The Prodigy-Invaders Must Die

The Prodigy Invaders Must Die:

This is like all those recent releases by Nu-Metal bands. Dance Rock millionaires The Prodigy, are still trying to cling to the success and relevancy they had during the 90’s. These guys should be hanging out in their mansions not trying to stay relevant, because quite frankly that era is over, and I doubt its coming back.

The Presets-Apocalypso

The Presets Apocalypso:

Earnest vocals and lyrics, too bad the beats and synth lines are generic and dated.
