Ben Folds -- Way To Normal
Um. I didn't like this. At all. Aside from the Regina Spektor duet. It was dull and just, meh. Seriously, only Ben could manage to release a fake cd that is better than his real cd.

Roger Manning Jr. -- Catnip Dynamite
There were a couple of really enjoyable tracks on this one, but overall...

Gavin DeGraw -- Gavin Degraw
Not a huge fan to start with, but his debut had some great moments on it. This? Very much a let down.

Raconteurs -- Consolers of the Lonely
I keep buying their cds hoping against hope for something awesome. I mean seriously! Jack White and Brendan Benson! how could it not be great? Both the debut and this had a few good tracks on it, but neither of them have held my attention all the way through.

Weezer -- The Red Album
I only gave this a few listens, but wow, how uninspiring.

Aimee Mann -- Smilers
OMG, this one gets my vote as most boring release of the ENTIRE YEAR!
