CD REVIEWS: Massive Attack: Heligoland

After a seven-year hiatus, Massive Attack's highly anticipated new release Heligoland is a letdown, to say the least. With collaborations from a variety of musicians such as Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Guy Garvey of Elbow, and regular Massive Attack contributors Horace Andy and Robert del Naja, fans were looking forward to something special.

Vancouver rock band Yukon Blonde has more fun

Alphababy really isn't a respectable name for a rock band, especially if you're a good one. Just ask Yukon Blonde, the Vancouver four-piece who played 300 shows as Alphababy from their formation in 2005 until late 2008. "We used to get, 'Are you guys a kink band?'" laughs guitarist/singer Brandon Scott.

CD REVIEWS: Jay Malinowski: Bright Lights & Bruises

Jay Malinowski is best known as the singer/lead guitarist for Bedouin Soundclash, but his solo album, Bright Lights & Bruises, shows that he can stand on his own. It conspicuously lacks the reggae feel of Bedouin Soundclash's repertoire, but for non-reggae fans this is all the more reason to give Bright Lights & Bruises a chance.

CD REVIEWS: Rebecca Ramone: The Flood

Rebecca Ramone's debut EP, The Flood, doesn't start with a bang. Instead, the opening track features a repeating blues riff beneath Ramone's delicate-yet-strong voice. The song shifts when the blues riff accelerates, hitting a grungy overdrive with thrashing symbols.

CD REVIEWS: Four Tet: There Is Love In You

The fifth full-length album from British electronic musician Kieran Hebden (better known as Four Tet), isn't a dramatic departure from his earlier work. Nor will it disappoint fans of Four Tet's already well-established oeuvre. The album is barely over 45 minutes long and undemanding enough to not need your full attention.

CD REVIEWS: Hot Chip: One Life Stand

Hot Chip's soft electropop is anything but middle of the road - it's love or hate. One Life Stand is their fourth studio album, and is a mixed bag of standout tracks and one-listen flops. The album begins with a strong opening track called "Thieves in the Night," which starts off sounding like Coldplay's X&Y era.

CD REVIEWS: OK Go: Of the Blue Colour of the Sky

You may know OK Go from their infamous viral videos on YouTube - including the treadmill dance routine in "Here it Goes Again" - from their previous album Oh No. Of the Blue Colour of the Sky is the latest album from the unique digital rock band. The album starts out with a Prince-like track, appropriately titled "WTF?" OTBCOTS is a departure from their first two albums, with a funkier, dancier sound.
