posted a review of The Killers - Sam's Town. about 1 year ago
This album is one of the "modern" albums I'm adding to my vinyl collection, which is primarily older, vintage vinyl.

Sam's Town is nearly perfect, from beginning to end. I actually prefer it to Hot Fuss, which is also fantastic. And it's really made... See full review
posted a review of The J.J. Johnson Sextet - J.J. Inc.. about 1 year ago
Truly fantastic 60s jazz album. I first discovered J.J. Johnson off a compilation LP, via his piece "Fatback." I came across this album "J.J. Inc." for only $4 in minty condition (as most jazz albums usually are), and I snapped it up. The... See full review

Solid 4/5 stars. I'm a child of the 80s, and this album was "dad music" when I was growing up. The synths sounded cheesy to my childhood ears. I recently came across a mint copy of this vinyl for $5, and I snapped it up. To my pleasant surprise, this... See full review
