Check out reviews for Eminem, Celine, Avril, and M.I.A.!


As we’re smack dab in the fourth quarter of the year, the big music releases come fast and furious as they all want to take advantage of holiday sales, but November 5th is one wallop of a day for new releases. We have new material from Eminem, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne (how dare they have 2 Canadians square off against each other!), and M.I.A. Not to mention a new album from The Wanted featuring the songs they’ve been releasing for the past couple of years.

To help you sift through all the new material, check out the links to the full reviews (and I’m also giving away a copy of Eminem’s and Celine Dion’s album on their links):

Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP2: “…rapper brings a energetic, self-reflective tone to most of the songs, but there’s nothing on here to get too excited about.”

Celine Dion’s Loved Me Back To Life: “Restraining herself is a bold move for a singer who has made a career on hitting those huge notes with such ease and clarity.”

Avril Lavigne’s Avril Lavigne:  “She’s in that awkward teen phase where she’s trying to figure herself out, so sometimes she’s really sweet and sometimes she just wants to rebel…which would be fine, if she wasn’t 29!”

M.I.A.’s Matangi: “…as we’ve seen in her work before, there’s always a danger it can fall off the rails.  But on Matangi, she nails it.”
