"A brilliant leap forward" -Rolling Stone
"The best punk record you'll hear all year" -Magnet
The Ugly Organ made landfall on March 4, 2003, the same day as Evanescence's Fallen and roughly two weeks
before the start of the Iraq War. The darkest days of the Bush Era were settling in like a dense fog over the
entire country, and the outlook was bleak. That made The Ugly Organ especially potent, its gloomy inward
focus a natural re action of the era. The press accolades came quickly, from the mainstream (Rolling Stone
called it "a brilliant leap forward," and Entertainment Weekly said it "raised the Saddle Creek bar") to the niche
(The A.V. Club called it "a potent piece of rock art," Alternative Press gave it a perfect score).
With The Ugly Organ, Cursive made a landmark album for itself and Saddle Creek. It was the label's 51st release
and the second in what my colleague Marc Hawthorne called "Saddle Creek's holy trinity" in his liner notes for
The Faint's Danse Macabre reissue: Danse Macabre, The Ugly Organ, and Bright Eyes' I'm Wide Awake, It's
Morning. (I'd argue more for LIFTED or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground on that count, but I'll
save that for the next time I see Marc.)
Just prior to The Ugly Organ, Saddle Creek had released the celebratory compilation Saddle Creek 50, which
included Cursive's gleefully self-referential "Nonsense" ("I really don't want to write another 'I'm a dick' song
again"), which is included on this reissue. The label's 49th release had been another Cursive joint, the "Art is
Hard" single, which featured the explosive six-minute B-side "Sinner's Serenade," also included here. Rounding
it out are four songs from Cursive's split EP with Eastern Youth, 8 Teeth to Eat You-check out the ferocious
playing by cellist Gretta Cohn on "Excerpts from Various Notes Strewn Around the Bedroom of April Connolly,
Feb 24, 1997"-and two songs from the single for "The Recluse." It's an exhaustive-and exhausting-snapshot of a band realizing its power and wielding it for maximum impact.
And then Cursive was gone. Again. Taking another of its intermittent hiatuses. An unease has accompanied
every album after The Ugly Organ that it could be the last one-no, for real this time. Maybe because The Ugly
Organ capped an unprecedented productive streak, ending a three-record, three-year run with an album that
can't help but re ect the e ort that went into it. The exhaustion, the ambivalence, the doubt, it all bleeds out
of those 12 tracks. At the end of "Staying Alive," the "ghost chorus" referenced in the liner notes sings, "The
worst is over, Doo do Doo do Doo do Doo doo." On second thought, maybe it's neither hope nor resignation,
but simple relief. The storm has passed. And it was a motherfucker.

The AstonishingThe Astonishing is undisputedly the most ambitious undertaking by a band whose cerebral compositions already define the vanguard of progressive hard rock.
The Astonishing is enriched exponentially by the integration of a real orchestra and choir, arranged by conductor David Campbell, whose work graces over 450 gold and platinum albums, including watershed releases from Adele, Justin Timberlake, Linkin Park, Evanescence, BeyoncÉ, and his son, Beck. The Astonishing was produced by Petrucci with engineering and mixing by Richard Chycki, whose resume includes work with Rush, Aerosmith, and Mick Jagger. Other organic sounds are more abundant than at any point in the band's history, with Rudess in particular relishing the tones from a grand piano and Hammond organ.
Like Tommy or The Wall, the songs on The Astonishing work as both singular compositions and overall story components. Writing the music as a duo, Petrucci and Rudess venture into unexplored corners of their sound without sacrificing their musical identity.LP 1

WholeChicago heavy rockers SOIL release their sixth studio album Whole via Pavement Entertainment. It's the band's first 100% independent release.
We wanted to call all the shots on this album and, for the first time ever, hold our future in our own hands, explains bassist Tim King.
Whole is the first SOIL album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004's Re.De.Fine (after which he joined DROWNING POOL). It sees SOIL returning to its classic sound that fans have come to admire, with a pres release calling it the CD that could have come directly after the 'Scars' album in 2001."
Following the 2012 release of its first-ever live DVD, Re-LIVE-ing The Scars, SOIL began writing new material and entered the studio in February 2013 with producer Ulrich Wild (PANTERA, BREAKING BENJAMIN) to begin recording.
This was by far the most comfortable and natural recording process we have ever experienced, says guitarist Adam Zadel. From the writing, pre-production, and through the main tracking and mixing, everything was smooth and fluid.
Songs featured on Whole include The Hate Song, Loaded Gun, Way Gone and Shine On, which is dedicated to the SOIL fans for standing by the band throughout the years. Another track, Amalgamation, sees McCombs taking songtitles from both the SOIL and DROWNING POOL releases he was a part of and weaving them into verses of the song.
I think, lyrically speaking, those that are familiar with the work I've done are going to get the next chapter that they would expect, McCombs says about the lyrical process. Words from a heart and mind that has lived them.
One of the greatest things I experience as a lyricist is when people come up and share with me how a song, or a specific verse or line from a song, got them through a hard time or times in their lives. It reminds me of the times music did that for me and how powerful music and/or a lyric can be in a person's life.
Drums and percussion on Whole were performed by Will Hunt (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, EVANESCENCE, DEVICE).
Will added a whole new dimension to the songs, states King. He added a monstrous and aggressive vibe to the album.
A guest guitar solo on Wake Up was performed by longtime friend Mike Mushok of the band STAIND.

Need You Now (Deluxe Edition)Plumb fans say her music brings hope and inspiration to their world. It's the highest compliment. Fame and fortune are fleeting, says Plumb, but making a difference in people's lives lasts for eternity. I want to tackle the difficult subjects in life, because I want people to know that the hard times, just like a piece of coal, can be turned into a diamond. So confesses singer/songwriter Plumb, an artist whose music blends the complex, feminine poignancy of Suzanne Vega and Sarah McLachlan with the sophisticated, modern rock of Shirley Manson from Garbage or Amy Lee of Evanescence.
Although Plumb's songs have sold millions of records for other artists, it's as a solo artist that her contribution to music can be felt most deeply. Plumb's music has appeared in Television shows ranging from Dawson's Creek, Felicity, ESPN's March Madness and more. Major motion pictures and soundtrack exposure include Bruce Almighty, Just Married, The Story Of Us, Loser, View From The Top, Drive Me Crazy, The Perfect Man and Evan Almighty. Plumb songs have also been recorded by the likes of Michelle Branch, Mandy Moore, Jennifer Page and more. Having achieved exposure in a variety of outlets as well as radio formats, Plumb's fans reach across multiple demos.1. Invisible

1000hpGrammy Award-nominated multi-platinum hard rock heroes, Godsmack are revving up their highly anticipated sixth full-length album, 100hp, for release.
The lead single off the upcoming album, 1000hp bursts out of the gate with the Boston group's signature stomp and newfound thrashed-up punk energy. It's a rowdy, rousing, and rough anthem that tells the story of the band's journey from playing tiny clubs to packed arenas worldwide. Once again Godsmack teamed up with producer Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Evanescence) for the album, recording it back home in their new HQ just 30 minutes from the heart of the city.1. 1000hp
