Least Essential

The Onion's AV Club has published The Least Essential Albums of 2003. My favorite review:



LEAST ESSENTIAL TRIBUTE ALBUM

Various Artists
The Acoustic Coffee House Presents: A Female Tribute To Creed
As someone named Bill Lefler strums away on an acoustic guitar with the care and cautious tempo of a first-year student, a parade of emotion-drained, seemingly identical singers with names like "Marmalade" and "Susannah B" work their way through the Creed catalog. Believe it or not, "With Arms Wide Open" and "Higher" can sound worse than they already do.

  3. Heh. Sadly, not much of *anything* shows up at the Record Exchange lately -- they're barely stocking new releases even. I'm guessing they're riding out the rest of their lease and are planning to either move or close soon. :(
