This compilation has 100 songs. Over 4.75 hours of music. This is a great way to dive into Merle's music as it is pretty much all represented on this compilation. I won't provide a rating because of the vast amount of content here.

Highlights: Mama Tried, The Fightin' Side of Me, Pancho and Lefty, Okie from Muskogee

The greatest takeaway from this album is how identical the covers are to the originals. There is not artistic interpretation here, just note for note copying. The album isn't bad, its just a bizzare thing to release when you are a major band like Weezer. I personally love a good cover, but I would have never asked for 10 covers from Weezer. In all fairness, this is just the reaction to the phenomenon that surrounded Weezer covering Toto's 'Africa'.

The songs chosen for the record are great ... read more

This album is so much sexier than Blake's last efforts. He truly is a master producer and this album shows that he is able to produce more than the dark sounds we have heard from him over the past few years. This album is almost happy in comparison to his other efforts. A true must hear album from 2019

Highlights: Into The Red, Can't Believe The Way We Flow, Where's The Catch?, Power On

This record is full of some great songs. Conor and Phoebe have really found a good thing by working together. Both artists are strong songwriters, musicians, and vocalists; their traits really shine on these 10 tracks. A few songs sounded just like listening to Bright Eyes, while other tracks were unlike anything either artist had released previously. One of the best records of 2019 so far.

Highlights: Sleepwalkin, Service Road, Exception to the Rule

I use a rating system that starts every album at 50. Track by track this number goes up or down depending on how I enjoy the track. As long as songs are enjoyable, the album should be landing in the 70+ range. This system is similar to the traditional grading system in American schools (F -- A+, where F is -50, A+ is 100).
