.Taking The Long Way
Dixie Chicks
Turns out it's still possible for country music to have balls. Even if it's softly sung, by three Dixie Chicks from Texas. We surprised ourselves by loving this album for more than just political reasons!
Review and song clips
[Open Wide/Columbia]

·St. Elsewhere
Gnarls Barkley
A genre busting soul album that's truly the height of pop cool - and a hit on radio. "Crazy" may be overplayed, but wow, what a song!
Review and song clips

John Mayer
An odd blend of adult contemporary and old soul that is seductive, subtle and simple all at once.
Review and song clips [Aware/Columbia] ·Stadium Arcadium
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Very few weak tracks on this 28 song selection. Vintage stuff that will remind you why this is *the* California band.
Review and song clips [Warner Bros.]

Justin Timberlake
You either hate him, or you want to shag him. And you'll need the album if you want to get backstage to ask for an "autograph". No seriously, a surprisingly good effort from loverboy and friends, here.
Review and song clips
[Jive Records/Zomba Label Group]
