Record Review Week: One Line Record Reviews, Part I

Neil Diamond, Home Before Dark: Everybody’s guilty pleasure has-been teams up (again) with bearded muso-guru Rick Rubin and releases a little gem of Americana.

AIR, "Moon Safari": Groovy, blissed-out cocktail electronica for aging hipsters and nu-ravers alike.

Johnny Cash, "American Recordings": Stark acoustic beauty and the smell of death.

A3, "Exile On Coldharbour Lane": I “woke up this morning” and found myself grooving to their particular blend of country-gospel-acid-house-techno-blues music.

The Alan Parsons Project, "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination". The tales of Edgar Allan Poe as sung through...ahem...a vocoder.

CCR, "Cosmos Factory": 80% humidity, plenty of mosquitoes, swampy guitar riffs and one hell of a rhythm section.

Future Sound Of London, "Dead Cities": Bladerunner on speed.

Gang Of Four, "Entertainment!:: The sound of 2004 released in 1977.
