Danzig: Skeletons

album cover“Raw, rowdy, and devoid of any sort of studio chicanery, Skeletons feels less like a proper Danzig album and more like a home recording of a boozy late-night house show.” -Allmusic.com

Adele: 25

album cover“Make no mistake, all 11 songs are of a piece — they’re shaded by melancholy, gaining most of their power through performance — but that cohesive sound only accentuates how Adele has definitively claimed this arena of dignified heartbreak as her own.” -Allmusic.com

Peter Case: HWY 62
