NPR: Music Reviews

What is perhaps most striking about National Public Radio's Music Reviews is the sheer range of what is reviewed. The excellent writing, however, always demands mention, as Will Hermes, Oliver Wang, and others delve into the wonders of folk albums, pop anthems, jazz compilations, movie soundtracks, and more. Recent articles have explored the best albums of 2015 ("From Hip-Hop To Country," by Ken Tucker), reviewed ZZ Top front man Billy Gibbon's first solo album, and extolled the "big blocky chords and loud piano sounds" of jazz pianist Matthew Shipp's "Conduct of Jazz." There are also links to Fresh Air episodes that concern music and musicians, and the All Songs 24/7 Music Channel, where readers can listen to a continuous stream of songs that have played on NPR's All Things Considered.
