Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

I Think You Should Leave, Season Two:
We loved the first season of this oddball comedy show but were less impressed by Season Two. The skits have morphed from "weird yet hilarious" to "weird for weird's sake". There are a couple great sketches, like Tables, but the rest are forgettable. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: B-

Otherlands: One by Casey Driessen:
This album is essentially a road trip of jam sessions from Casey Driessen, playing in many different styles. Great background music, but not as good for active listening. (The album is 80 minutes long and features a few 10 minute tracks).

Final Grade: B-

No Time For Enemies by Gangstagrass:
I always like the sound of Gangstagrass, which mixes rap, country, and bluegrass together. (They wrote the theme song for the show, Justified). The rapping itself is usually the weakest link. All of the raps on this album are rhythmically struggling, like Kanye West trying to do musical theater. The overall effect is just bad, and not "so bad it's good" like the classic "bears comin' outta nowhere" song.

Final Grade: C-

Psycho Jukebox by Jon Fratelli:
This album is a decade old now, and comes from the short solo career of the Fratellis' lead singer. While it sometimes sounds like a Fratellis spin-off band instead of a unique solo sound, I enjoyed it. There are lots of catchy melodic hooks throughout. Magic and Mayhem is a good representative track that easily gets stuck in my head.

Final Grade: B+
