New CD Album Releases, 9-28-2010: Ben Folds, Seal, Neil Young, Eric Clapton

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Ben Folds has a new album out, with lyrical collaboration from novelist Nick Hornby. Some of the songs are more memorable than others, but for one thing I’m totally hooked on “Levi Johnston’s Blues.” Leave it to Ben Folds to put out a song from the point of view of Sarah Palin’s grandbaby daddy. And leave it to Ben Folds to make it an actual outstanding song with a heart.

I was first drawn into the album by the idea of a song about this kid’s story, resisting becoming a cog in some politician’s publicity machine. But what has me listening to it dozens of times is the strings from Paul Buckminster. They send a thrill up my leg like I was Chris Matthews getting off on Obama. Among other things, this guy was responsible for the kick ass strings on a bunch of classic era Elton John records. He’s really good at this. The whole album is worth a listen, but you definitely need to hear at least this one song.

Neil Young’s new Le Noise album might be worth listening to. Frankly, Neil Young records are mostly most of the time worthless crap that he hasn’t put any thought or real effort into, at least the electric albums he’s made in the last 30 years. When he puts out an hour long album, it generally sounds like he spent just about that long making it – plus the five minutes to plug in the mics and amps. Even if he has an occassional bit of an inspired hook, he does nothing to actually develop it, ie “Let’s Impeach the President.”

This album, however, was made with Daniel Lanois, who doesn’t work like that. As I would expect from choosing to work with Lanois, it sounds like he’s put a little more effort than usual into thinking his songs out. Plus of course they benefit substantially from Lanois and his sonic strategies.

New CD Album Releases, 9-21-2010: Santana, Maroon 5, UB40

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Don’t know if it’s any great shakes, but I’m at least somewhat interested in what I’ve heard of Santana’s new album Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time. It’s a natural idea for him. I rolled my eyes at the promo copy about these songs where Santana is describing them as “the Mona Lisas,” in Carlos’ words, “songs done by the daVincis of our time.” I’m somewhat less than impressed with such talk about Def Leppard’s “Photograph” and “Bang a Gong.” However, I’m TOTALLY buying India.Arie singing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” backed by Santana and Yo-Yo Ma.

New CD Album Releases, 9-14-2010: Robert Plant, Linkin Park, Weezer, Christopher Cross

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Don’t know if it’s any good, but Robert Plant has a new album this week resurrecting the name Band of Joy with which he was briefly affiliated pre-Zeppelin. It’s really a whole new thing for him to define, as they never actually made an album. But in theory this is a back to his roots move, meaning California psychedelic folk – or something like that. Think of the most hippie-dippie end of Zeppelin. Might be worth a little listen.

New CD Album Releases, 9-7-2010: Jerry Lee Lewis, Interpol

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Of the entire Sun Records crowd, who would have predicted that Jerry Lee Lewis, of any of them, would be the last man standing, recording a credible album as late as 2010? Mean Old Man features The Killer among other things singing “Dead Flowers” with Mick Jagger, who’s a fairly mean old man himself. God bless and preserve Jerry Lee.
