new reviews: Common Market, Kings of Leon

Review of Common Market's "Tobacco Road"

Review of Kings of Leon's "Only By the Night"

Both are up now at Culture Bully. I was maybe a bit too hard on Common Market, who are a great hip hop act and have a very solid album on their hands, but I stand by what I wrote. The more I listen to the album, though, the more I really like it.

As for the second link, reviewing non-hip hop acts is fun because I don't get so bogged down in politics and context-based stuff-- it's really just about "is the music cool, or not?" May not win me any journalism awards, but it's fun.

Lots more on the way.
