Pacer - Involuntary Movement
Review by Gary Hill
I really had to give a lot of thought to what section of MSJ this review belonged. In honesty, this almost made into the progressive rock section.
More
Kelly Padrick - Dear Love
Review by Gary Hill
Although Kelly Padrick is originally from Rhode Island, she’s relocated to New York City. 

More
Page and Plant - Walking into Clarksdale
Review by Gary Hill
This second album from Led Zeppelin partners Jimmy Page and Robert Plant holds onto elements of their first reunion album (No Quarter), but in many ways really feels like the return of Led Zeppelin.
More
Painted on Water - Chicago Issue
Review by Gary Hill
I really like this EP a lot. It’s got an intriguing set of sounds.

More
Richard Palmer-James - Takeaway
Review by Gary Hill
Richard Palmer-James is probably best known for writing some lyrics for the John Wetton fronted version of King Crimson.

More
Papaslide - The Deepest Pain
Review by Gary Hill
The main thing here is the guitar.

More
Tess Parks - Blood Hot
Review by Gary Hill
When this works, it really works.

More
Brian Parrish - Traveller
Review by Gary Hill
Brian Parrish is possibly best known for his work as part of the band Badger. This new solo album shows that he’s got what it takes to deliver great music on his own, though.

More
Jas Patrick - Inky Ovine
Review by Gary Hill
This album is really a great ride. It varies sound a lot from start to finish.

More
Thomas Charlie Pedersen - Second Hand War
Review by Gary Hill
This is a solo album from one of the guys from the band Vinyl Floor (a group I reviewed before).

More
The Pee Wee Blues Gang - Playing Funky - the Lost Album
Review by Gary Hill
Given the name of the group, I expected a lot more blues. That said, this is not a disappointment.

More
Steve Peltz - Sweet Lips
Review by Gary Hill
There are definitely people who like odd music. I'm talking about stuff that is often off-key or oddly timed.

More
Kimia Penton - Where the Rain Falls
Review by Gary Hill

I'm not so sure that the cover image of this set does it justice. The violin as the focus of the cover gives two impression.


More
Perfect Defect - Perfect Defect
Review by Gary Hill

The argument could be made to call this heavy metal. Honestly, I think it's a bit more on the mainstream hard rock end of the spectrum, but I wouldn't argue with that classification.


More
Kat Perkins - Fearless
Review by Gary Hill
This EP is quite strong. I’d have to say that it probably would appeal to fans of Heart quite a bit.

More
Peter, Paul and Mary - Peter, Paul and Mary (Limited Edition Hybrid SACD version)
Review by Gary Hill
I can’t remember a time when the music of Peter Paul and Mary was not a part of the world.

More
Vanessa Peters - Foxhole Prayers
Review by Gary Hill

This is quite an effective set. The music is probably best described in one phrase as "folk rock," but that is only so accurate.


More
Lucky Peterson - I’m Back Again
Review by Gary Hill
Let’s get this out of the way right up front.

More
Tom Petty - Hypnotic Eye
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always been a big fan of Tom Petty.

More
Phantom Phunk - Arboles Ossific
Review by Gary Hill
This set is an intriguing one. There is a lot of alternative rock along with punk and much more.


More
Phantom Phunk - Struggle With Me
Review by Gary Hill

I reviewed a previous set from this act and talked about the variety presented on the disc. This time around that's still present, but they seem to somehow merge the sounds better.


More
Joel Phil - Raise Up EP
Review by Gary Hill

This new EP has four versions of the same song. The first one is the original take.


More
Joel Phil - Monster (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill

I previously reviewed an EP from this artist. That one had four different versions of one song.


More
Josh Phillips - New Beginnings
Review by Gary Hill
This is generally in the vicinity of modern pop rock.

More
Picture Me Broken - Mannequins
Review by Kat Heitzman
This four man band hails from Redwood City, California and started out doing cover songs.

More
Pinder Brothers - Melancholy Sea
Review by Gary Hill
This is a band made up of two brothers with the last name “Pinder.”

More
Pink Fairies - Naked Radio
Review by Gary Hill
These guys were a part of the same London scene that saw the rise of Hawkwind. In fact, at times there was a hybrid of the two groups going under the name "Pinkwind."

More
Dug Pinnick - Naked
Review by Scott Prinzing
I was so anxious for this album's release that I actually downloaded a copy (legally, of course!) before waiting for it to appear in my local record store. 

More
Planxty - One Night in Bremen
Review by Gary Hill

This live album was recorded for German radio. It is a concert from 1979.


More
Melissa Plett - Ghost Town
Review by Gary Hill

There is a lot of down-home, old-school country music in the mix here. The music ranges from evocative ballads to bluesy tunes and rockers.


More
Plum - Light Years, Dark Years
Review by Gary Hill
This EP features some great psychedelic rock. .

More
Vincent Poag - For the Girls
Review by Gary Hill
Folk music is the general concept here.

More
Vincent Poag - Heroes and Demons
Review by Gary Hill

Vincent Poag's new disc has a lot of variety. The music most often seems related to both Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.


More
Jeremy Poland and Lantz Dale - Timeless Soul
Review by Gary Hill
This kind of soft rock based pop music is the kind of thing that really works on top 40 radio.

More
Tony Pops & Scott Andrew - Light Of Mine EP
Review by Gary Hill
The mix of sounds between folk, soulful elements and more here is both classic and fresh.

More
Tyler Porch Band - Only the Sky Knows
Review by Gary Hill
Jam band sounds, blues, jazz and more are built into this release. It’s got a very classic sound to it.

More
Port of Est - Valentine in my Headphones (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill
There is a definite 80s pop vibe to this piece.

More
Jeremy Porter and the Tucos - Above the Sweet-Tea Line
Review by Gary Hill
I dig the roots rock vibe of this set.

More
Jarel Portman - Supersonic
Review by Gary Hill

This is quite a cool set. It has some moments that are down- right exceptional. Even the cuts that fall a bit short of that are still pretty darned good.


More
Leroy Powell and the Messengers - The Overlords of the Cosmic Revelation
Review by Gary Hill
This album is extremely strong.

More
Hugh Prestwood - I Used to Be the Real Me
Review by Gary Hill
There was a time when folk music was a big part of the popular culture. Don't get me wrong, it still is to a large degree.

More
Charley Pride - There's a Little Bit of Hank in Me / Burgers & Fries - When I Stop Leaving (I'll Be Gone)
Review by Gary Hill
This is part of a new series of reissues of country discs.

More
Prince - Musicology
Review by Gary Hill
Prince was on top of the world for a long time, but then he made a lot of bad decisions that caused him to fall from grace. It all started when he changed his name to a symbol (it turned out later this was a ploy to get out of his contract with Warner).
More
Prince - The Very Best of Prince
Review by Gary Hill
Since the last issue of Music Street Journal went live a couple months ago we lost three extremely talented musicians from three different styles of musical artistry.

More
Professor Louie - & The Crowmatix - Crowin' the Blues
Review by Gary Hill
It takes a special set of skills to create music that feels modern and yet faithful to the old musical styles at the same time.

More
Psychocide - Alcohol & Bad Decisions
Review by Gary Hill

It's definitely hard to land a label on these guys. As close as you can come is "hard rock."


More
Purusa - Repair
Review by Gary Hill
The mix of sounds on this set is fairly wide.
