*Charlotte, Medusa Groove Charlotte, according to, was an '80s hair metal band that "didn't get their due." Read the 8 out of 10 flying V review at the link above.

*Dru Hill, Indrupendence Day Melody Charles wrote in her review, "Even if some of the tracks range from frivolous to feather-weight and employ waaaay too much auto-tune ("Can't Stop" is mind-numbingly dull and "Rule the World" is a remake of the Tears For Fears 1980's smash that's a dubious inclusion at best and just plain lazy at worst), InDRUpendence Day puts this quartet back in the spotlight and, for their ride-or-die fans, rewards their patience with a solid release as they capitalize on a glorious past while rebuilding their musical futures."

Menomena's Mines
  • Menomena's Mines

*Menomena, Mines Pitchfork gave Mines an 8.2 rating, saying, "One of the things that makes Menomena such a consistently great band on record is that, regardless of how they're arranging their sounds, they know how to balance them in a mix so that the listener can feel the spatial relationships between them. There's a lot of room for your ear to roam on Mines, and it reveals itself over the course of a few listens as a very satisfying album worth exploring and revisiting."
