A Golden Age
If things have been a little slow around here lately, it’s because, well, as far as music goes, the year is more or less over. In case you missed it, I’ve posted my Top 15 Albums of 2008, and, later this weekend, I’ll be posting a 2009 Music Preview, spotlighting a few noteworthy albums from the first few months of next year, several of which I’ve heard and will comment on. After that, The Hurst Review is going on Christmas Break until January– save for a film-related post or two, of course– and then, when the new year starts, we’ll begin hitting hard with reviews of new releases from the likes of Andrew Bird, A.C. Newman, Joshua Redman, and others.
I did want to take a moment to note a few more publications that are joining with me in heralding TV on the Radio’s magnificent Dear Science, as the landmark recording of 2008:
- They’re #1 in Spin.
- They’re #1 at Stereo Subversion.
- And they’re #1 at Tone Marrow, which also celebrates Hurst Review favorites Barry Adamson and The Tallest Man on Earth.
