To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New CD Album Releases, 6-3-2008: Jewel Kilcher, Aimee Mann, Dr John, Elton John re-issues
Aimee Mann is beautifulI've been listening to @#%&*! Smilers, the seventh solo album from Aimee Mann. She generally strikes me as a competent basic singer-songwriter type, who has had at least a couple of transcendent moments - "Voices Carry" and "Save Me" definitely. I'm not hearing anything here on that level, but it's got some flavor in the arrangements and at least a few half decent hooks. You'd probably like this if you're into this kind of thing. You might start by looking for "Freeway." This one sounds most like a proper pop song. It's about the catchiest thing here.

On the one hand, Jewel Kilcher is a sincere and thoughtful singer-songwriter type, broadly like Aimee Mann - but maybe even cuter. But her main good career making country Jewel Kilcherhit didn't so much strike me personally, as my soul isn't particularly needing saved. In any case, this new Perfectly Clear is her seventh album.

After affecting a Britney Spears personnae for a minute, she's now made an official "country" album, produced by John Rich, of Big & Rich. "Country" would seem to come a lot closer to her natural artistic personality. Most interestingly, Jewel says that she's been saving up some of these country songs for years, waiting for the right record to on which to put songs written as far back as age 18.

Dr. John and the Lower 911 have City That Care Forgot, obviously a post-Katrina album for his beloved NOLA. Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton and Ani DiFranco are among the performers.
