Tanya Gallagher - Virginia
Review by Gary Hill

This is rather folk oriented music. Some of it is very much set in a roots folk style.


More
Tanya Gallagher - One Hand On My Heart
Review by Gary Hill

This is an interesting set. The sound here varies quite a bit from one tune to another, but yet it all fits as one cohesive unit.


More
Don Gallardo - Still Here
Review by Gary Hill

More than anything else this is tied to the roots music movement. There is a lot of folk, country and other Americana here.


More
Peter Galperin - This Burning Sun
Review by Gary Hill

Combining elements of 80s pop music with Americana and more, this is an entertaining set. Some of the lyrics get quite topical, but it never loses its sense of fun musically.


More
Garbage - Garbage
Review by Gary Hill
This debut from the alternative band Garbage is a very strong effort. The disc showcases solid song writing with offbeat overtones and Shirley Manson`s wonderful vocals (which are, at times, quite haunting).

More
Katie Garibaldi - Follow Your Heart
Review by Gary Hill
Hailing from California, Katie Garibaldi’s voice seems more tied to the deep south..

More
Katie Garibaldi - Rooted Clarity
Review by Gary Hill
This new disc from Katie Garibaldi isn’t a big surprise. That said, it’s a solid set of five songs.

More
Katie Garibaldi - Home Sweet Christmas
Review by Gary Hill

I received this last year after our December issue had already been published. It never makes a lot of sense to me to review holiday music after Christmas, so it's been sitting and awaiting review this whole time.


More
Jerry Gaskill - Come Somewhere
Review by Gary Hill
What a wonderful surprise this one is! I had never been very familiar with King's X, so when I got this disc from King's X drummer Gaskill, I wasn't' sure what to expect.
More
Gasmilk - 2 of Us
Review by Gary Hill
Gasmilk is one guy - Brian Lee White.

More
Geggy Tah - Into The Oh
Review by Gary Hill
The music of Geggy Tah is quite hard to put your finger on. It is modern, alternative even, but includes solid retro leanings. The names Steely Dan and George Michael would likely pop into your head at least once while listening to this album.
More
Teddy Geiger - Step Ladder EP
Review by Gary Hill
Just when I'd nearly given up on looking for any talent in any artist that had been picked up by the major pop idol making machine along comes Teddy Geiger.
More
J. Geils Band - House Party Live in Germany
Review by Gary Hill
I remember many years ago, when I was a kid I had an old scratched up live album from the J. Geils band.

More
General Lee Band - Rebel by Choice
Review by Gary Hill
Imagine modern, harder edged versions of classic Southern rock songs.

More
Eric George - Not About Nightingales
Review by Gary Hill
This set is interesting for certain. I suppose the simplest description would be "roots music."

More
GermsX - GermsX Presents The Bentwitch Project
Review by Gary Hill
This is a short (less than twenty minutes) set. It’s punk rock.

More
Giant Flying Turtles - Waltz to the World
Review by Gary Hill
The one thing that's consistent on this album is quality. These guys produce solid music from the beginning to the end.

More
Geoff Gibbons - Buffalo Hotel
Review by Gary Hill

This is an intriguing set. It has a real timeless, classic quality to it. The single word explanation for this would be "Americana," but there is quite  a bit of wiggle room within that label.


More
Geoff Gibbons - Shadow of a Stone - Songs of Remembrance
Review by Gary Hill

I have previously reviewed another set from Geoff Gibbons. Like that one, this EP lands generally under the Americana heading.


More
Polly Gibbons - Many Faces of Love
Review by Gary Hill
I really like the brand of jazz on display here.

More
Merritt Gibson - Eyes on Us
Review by Gary Hill

I've seen Merritt Gibson described as an "indie artist." That's really a non-descriptive term, though.


More
Gin Blossoms - Mixed Reality
Review by Gary Hill

Fans of Gin Blossoms should really like this album. It's a solid set that is instantly recognizable as them.


More
The Glass Child - I Must Be Gone and Live, or Stay and Die
Review by Gary Hill
The mastermind behind this work is a lady named “Charlotte Eriksson.”

More
Go Robot, Go - Good Vibes in Fashion Wear
Review by Gary Hill
These guys have a sound that incorporates a lot of different things.

More
Godhead - The Shadow Realigned
Review by Gary Hill
What we’ve got here is a set of remixes all by different producers and one new song and two covers.

More
Going to the Sun - Going to the Sun
Review by Gary Hill
I like this set quite a bit. It’s a solid pop rock disc full of a variety of accessible pieces of music.

More
Emily Gold - Recluse
Review by Gary Hill
I like this set. It has a fairly wide range of musical styles from mellow and dreamy, to hard rocking and a lot in between.

More
Thadeus Gonzalez - Utopian Society
Review by Gary Hill
Although the general label that fits this set is probably just mainstream rock, there is a good amount of variety and range within.

More
The Good For Nothin' Band - Maniac World
Review by Gary Hill
There is a big roots music movement underway these days. 
More
Goodnight Tonight - Watch the Rain
Review by Gary Hill
I love this EP. It’s not overly original, but it just works really well.

More
Gordon Ellis & Steel - Looking Forward Thinking Back
Review by Gary Hill

This album was originally recorded in the early part of the 1970s. Unfortunately, by the time it was done, the label for which it was being recorded had failed.


More
Steven Allen Gordon - All Over the Map: Music for Solo Guitar and Solo Viola
Review by Gary Hill

I'm not sure if I'd consider this "all over the map." The vast majority of this is classical music.


More
Amanda Grace - Trains, Cars and a Trip to Mars
Review by Gary Hill
This album is basically a “kid’s” album.

More
Grand Funk Railroad - Grand Funk
Review by Gary Hill
Another in the series of Grand Funk reissues, this one shows the band not straying too far from their home turf musically. Still, when your home turf is such a great blend of bluesy rock laced with fuzz bass and tasty guitar riffing, why not stay close to home?

More
Grand Funk Railroad - Live The 1971 Tour
Review by Gary Hill
Grand Funk Railroad was a band on which I, and many others cut my teeth. They were called the worst band of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, but that didn't bother us.
More
Grand Funk Railroad - Live Album
Review by Gary Hill
Once upon a time if you wanted to buy a Grand Funk live disc, this was the one to get, because it was the only one. Now, however, there are others to choose from.

More
Grand Funk Railroad - On Time
Review by Gary Hill
With On Time Grand Funk released a mixed bag of music. With the reissue, Capitol has added a couple of bonuses to sweeten the pot.
More
Grand Funk Railroad - Closer To Home
Review by Gary Hill
This is definitely not Grand Funk Railroad's strongest release. That said, I can think of at least two reasons to have this disc.
More
Grand Old Grizzly - Grand Old Grizzly
Review by Gary Hill
This is Americana. That’s the best description.

More
Vince Grant - My Depression Is Always Trying To Kill Me
Review by Gary Hill
This set comes in, does its job and gets out.

More
The Grateful Dead - The Reckoning
Review by Gary Hill
The Grateful Dead were always at least three different bands stylistically. There was "the rock band", "the folk band with country leanings" and "the psychedelic space rock band".
More
Gravity Kills - Superstarved
Review by Mike Korn
Gravity Kills emerged in the mid-90's as part of the horde of bands inspired by the success of Nine Inch Nails. That hungry mob also included acts like Stabbing Westward, Sister Machine Gun and Filter.
More
The Great American Robber Barons - Reno Nevada & Other Songs Of Gambling Vice & Betrayal
Review by Gary Hill
This is an intriguing album. It has some pretty magical moments and then some others that don’t work quite as well.

More
The Great Escape - The Great Escape
Review by Gary Hill
I can’t praise this album enough. It has a lot in common with a lot of the modern female fronted pop rock out there.

More
The Great Escape - Universe in Bloom
Review by Gary Hill

The mix of sounds on this set is interesting. The female vocals at once convey a retro element and a modern one.


More
The Great Socio - Find the Time
Review by Gary Hill
I don’t know how to categorize this music. I do know that it rocks.

More
The Green Door - Wolf in the Fold
Review by Gary Hill

There is a shared territory between punk rock, psychedelia and stoner rock. These guys live within that space.


More
Bryson Green - Some More (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
Bryson Green has set off on an ambitious goal for this year. He’s releasing one single every week for 52 weeks.

More
Gretchen’s Wheel - Fragile State
Review by Gary Hill
This is a fairly effective set, but it does tend to get a little samey at points.

More
Zaine Griff - Collectors Premium
Review by Gary Hill

I've not heard of this artist before, but apparently he was a big part of the Europop, new wave, new romantic movement. That sound is well tied to the 80s.


More
Jefferson Grizzard - Learning How to Lie
Review by Gary Hill
This is a pretty cool album. It’s got a bit of a punk rock element, but overall lands more in the territory of singer/songwriter music.

More
Guy Grogan - Purgatorial Hearts
Review by Gary Hill

You can't call this disc predictable. It's also not for people who like music that's fully polished.


More
Grönholm and Small - Head Funk
Review by Gary Hill

I've previously reviewed a couple discs from Grönholm. Here guitarist Mika Grönholm joins forces with singer Lee Small.


More
Vince Guaraldi - A Charlie Brown Christmas
Review by Gary Hill
Mention A Charlie Brown Christmas to most people, and it will elicit a response. The Peanuts gang, and that movie in particular, have touched so many people.
More
The Guess Who - The Best of the Guess Who (Hybrid SACD 4.0 Multichannel)
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always loved the Guess Who.

More
Gun Club Cemetery - Gun Club Cemetery
Review by Gary Hill
In a lot of ways this feels like it could have been released in the early 1970s.

More
Gunhill - Nightheat / One Over the Eight
Review by Gary Hill
Gunhill was a band that featured John Lawton as the lead singer. They released two albums in the 1990s.

More
Andy Gunn - Bonar Bridge Sessions
Review by Gary Hill
Bluesy rock music is the concept here.

More
Andy Gunn - Miracle of Healing
Review by Gary Hill
This isn’t the kind of thing that’s vastly original or Earth shattering. On the other hand, it’s very effective stuff.

More
Guns N' Roses - The Spaghetti Incident?
Review by Gary Hill
Well before Metallica's Garage Inc., Guns and Roses did their take on their own influences. The result is The Spaghetti Incident?.

More
Gypsy Lumberjacks - Pulling Upon the Strap
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool release.

More
Gypsy Lumberjacks - Giants of America
Review by Gary Hill
This is such a cool set. It has an extremely wide range of sound.
