Black Mountain: Wilderness Heart

I actually like this one alright. It’s not that great of an album, but “Roller Coaster” and “The Way to Gone” are both pretty cool. And some of the quieter songs aren’t bad either. 14 more words

Michael Gira: I am Singing to You From My Room

I loved this when it came out. Still think that a lot of these songs were better solo acoustic than on the album. Cool early version of “Rose of Los Angeles” on here too. 32 more words

Oakley Hall: Self-titled

Definitely not as good as the next two, but still a pretty good album. In some ways more country and more weird than the next two albums. 16 more words

Pink Mountaintops: Outside Love

This one holds up surprisingly well. The first song is pretty damn good. And the 2nd too. Nice big full sound. It’s not as interesting as his other albums, but the songwriting is definitely strong. 10 more words
