Vanessa Carlton’s Liberman

I saw Vanessa Carlton in concert last year and she played some new music she was working on. So I’ve anxiously been waiting the release of her new album, Liberman, to see how the songs sound recorded. I’m glad it came out in October because I have tickets to see her again in December and…

Natalie Imbruglia’s Male

I downloaded Natalie Imbruglia’s new album Male last month as soon as it became available. I’ve been waiting for some new music from her for a while now, six years to be exact. When I heard that Male was Natalie singing the songs of male singers, I was amused by the idea (so far I’ve…

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion

The only album reviews I read are those for artists I haven’t heard of before in order to get an idea of their sound and who they’re musically compared to. It was unusual for me to read the early reviews for Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album Emotion. I have been waiting for this album for…

Lenka’s The Bright Side

I downloaded Lenka’s new album The Bright Side the day it went on sale and since then it’s been playing non-stop in my car. In my gay opinion, this is the perfect album for summer, to just roll down the windows and sing along to…especially lucky for those people stuck next to me at red…

Paula Cole’s 7

I discovered Paula Cole when I first heard “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone” back in 1997. After hearing it, I ran out and bought her album This Fire . I loved that album so much that I went back to the store (that’s when there were still record stores) and bought her first album…

Marina & The Diamonds Froot

I first discovered Marina & The Diamonds when she opened for Katy Perry during Katy’s California Dreams Tour. Whenever I go to a concert and there’s an opener I don’t know, I like to check out their music beforehand. I had yet to like an unknown opener until Marina and haven’t liked one since. Her…

Madonna’s Rebel Heart

Being a Madonna fan has been a part of my life longer than most things. Longer than I was a son, a vegetarian, a boyfriend, or any professional title I’ve ever had. Hell it’s even been longer than I’ve called myself gay. Madonna herself, her songs, her videos, her movies, her concerts…are all interwoven into…

Bette Midler’s It’s The Girls

I was thrilled when I heard Bette Midler was releasing a new album. I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I learned it was another album of covers since it’s been over a decade since she’s released an album of new music. But when I heard the premise, she was going to…

Annie Lennox’s Nostalgia

Annie Lennox just released her new covers album of old jazz and blues songs called Nostalgia. I’m not a huge fan of jazz or blues but I am a huge Annie Lennox fan so I was excited to get a new album, whatever type of music it might be. I didn’t have high expectations but…

Stevie Nicks’ 24 Karat Gold

My gay opinion is that Stevie Nicks can do no wrong. Honey can cast spells just by swirling her shawl and weave magic through her songs. Stevie’s voice has been a part of my musical upbringing since I first discovered music in the late 70s, early 80s. I would dance around my room with a…
