John Kelman's Best Releases of 2019

Read "John Kelman's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by John Kelman

Well, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome continues to be a challenge, as it has been since mid-2014. 2019 represents, in fact, the worst year when it comes to the actual number of articles written. Still, I've been finding an increasingly satisfying niche in the arena of in-depth, detailed and extensive/exhaustive (exhausting, for you as much as I!!) articles. ...

Read "Rolling Stones: Live Licks" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

D'Angelo: Voodoo

Read "Voodoo" reviewed by Rob Evanoff

What’s a reviewer to do when all he does is stew aboutVoodoo? Being out of the loop, not having heard of Michael “D’Angelo” Archer until late last century, witnessing the pre-release anticipation but shunning it as my jaded exterior is impervious to the manipulation machine.
