4/5. A dark, brooding covers album. Gabriel's interpretation of the songs is brilliant, as is the song selection itself. The album really opens itself up over multiple listens and although it isn't right for most moods, when the mood IS right, it's one of the best things out there.

3/5. A solid album.. if it was made by anyone but Massive Attack. Coming from them, it's a bit bland, boring and lacking the sharpness and energy of Mezzanine, but even 100th Window. The tracks "Paradise Circus" and "Rush Minute" prove that Massive Attack can still make a brilliant tune, but for some reason the album falls short for me.

2,5/5. A decent album, nothing too special, unfortunately.

3,5/5. Another strong album by Tindersticks with a few brilliant moments. I still love their older material more, especially Curtains or even The Hungry Saw, their last album.

1. In 2013, in some quiet college bar, a slightly inebriated freshman will pocket her fake ID, finish her amaretto sour, and slur out “gawd, I love Katy Perry” as “I Kissed a Girl” plays overhead. It will be the last time Katy Perry’s name is ever said aloud before her celebrity is surrendered to time’s fickle clutches.

Still think jazz is music for grandfathers and Woody Allen movies? Well, not to sound snooty, but at this point, I dare say you’re just not listening carefully enough. As creatively vibrant and restlessly forward-thinking as indie rock – and with every bit as much to say about love, culture, politics, and human dignity, the jazz scene as it stands in 2009 is a series of quiet revolutions. And they’re quiet only because too many listeners are unwilling to give the music a chance.
