It's kind of weird, and not in a good way.

CD review: Robin Thicke's 'Paula'

July 2nd, 2014

It's kind of weird, and not in a good way.

  • Music

    It's nice to see the group continue its current direction.

  • Music

    Mr. Mau5' latest release is unabashedly emotive and thoroughly cerebral.

  • Music

    With songs calibrated perfectly for a massive headlining set, the new disc is a big disappointment.

  • Music

    The new disc ditches the rapping (yay!) for an even slower, moodier, murkier sound.

  • Music

    With loud rockers and twangy country throwbacks, the artist's fifth album showcases her entire range.

  • Music

    The punk elder delivers a solo record that's loud and bittersweet and very Bob Mould-y.

  • Music

    They're not just a great hip-hop band. They're a great band, period.

  • Music

    Another album from the Canadian musicians that does exactly what you'd expect.

  • Music

    The album feels more like career sabotage than an adventurous detour.

  • Music

    There's plenty of payoff on this anticipated electronic record.

  • Music

    Musically and lyrically, this album is all about Allen sticking to her own unique path.

  • Music

    He may be having a career crisis, but this album is irresistible.

  • Music

    It took 16 years to get here -- and it was worth waiting for.

  • Arts & Entertainment

    It's a bit uneven, but there's plenty to dance to here.

  • Music

    The band's third album boasts more aggressive guitars and drums, speedier tempos and more prominent basslines.

  • Music

    Five early tracks pound with rhythmic intensity, demanding more than an earphoned head bop.

  • Music

    The band might be Brooklyn-based, but Craig Finn’s Minnesota roots dominate the band’s sixth album.

  • Music

    The first single, “Seasons (Waiting on You),” is wonderful on record, but to get the full effect, watch it on 'Letterman.'

  • Music

    The album's execution can't match its ambition.
