Donald Fagen — Sunken Condos (2012)
Reprise Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull
Cutting Engineer: Alex DeTurk

"OK, OK, you're probably thinking, how does it sound? Well, the CD sounds damn good—Fagen's voice is clearer, the instruments more distinct and dynamic, than they have been for a few albums—and the LP sounds better still." -- Michael Fremer at Stereophile

Vinyl Cutting Engineers: Scott Hull and Alex DeTurk

"Given Sting’s far-reaching ambition and interests, it was merely a matter of time before he recorded an orchestral album, but 2010’s Symphonicities surprises by offering symphonic arrangements of his older songs instead of a new work." -- AllMusic

Steely Dan — Two Against Nature (2000)
Giant Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull

"For proof their prime isn't past, skip to the closing ''West of Hollywood,'' this album's eight-minute-plus masterpiece. ''I'm way deep into nothing special,'' repeats Fagen, describing a SoCal black hole of addictive pleasure and romantic despair. The fever-pitched music matches the lyric's abyss-mal uncertainty, throwing out a succession of the weirdest key changes you've ever heard on a pop record, its roller-coaster twists topped off by a Chris Potter sax solo so good you'll keep checking the LED display in hopes it isn't nearly over." -- Entertainment Weekly

Reprise Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull

"The Steely Dan signatures are all in place: jazz chords and female choruses, horn-section sighs and light-funk grooves, lush atmospheres and a sound of amazing presence. But "Kamakiriad" isn't just an "Aja" minor. For the first time, Fagen instills his music with full emotional openness, and, without the old ironic knots to be negotiated, the prevailing tones of ache and longing have more dimension and resonance. Similarly, Fagen's singing has acquired a dynamic command that allows him to animate his hipster syntax with an energized swing, adding new levels of expressive nuance." -- Los Angeles Times

"CocoRosie now introduce their fifth album, Tales Of A GrassWidow, produced in collaboration with Icelandic composer Valgeir Sigurðsson and enriched by a whole host of guest performances. It’s a brave record, synthesizing electronic and organic sound to convey a futuristic, back-to-nature feeling." -- City Slang

Madi Diaz — Plastic Moon (2012)
Small Horse Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull

"Madi Diaz is like the Wade Boggs of pop/rock; her songs never swing for the fences, but they always seem to connect. Last time she released a full album, Diaz was an alt-country newcomer doubling as a young college student. This time around, she's a mid-twentysomething road warrior with years of practice under her belt, and Plastic Moon feels tighter, tauter, more cohesive than most sophomore records." -- AllMusic

Loudon Wainwright III — Older Than My Old Man Now (2012)
2nd Story Sound / Proper Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull

"On "The Here & Now," the opening track, Wainwright enlists all four of his children, ex-wife Suzzy Roche, and current wife Ritamarie Kelly. Guitarist John Scofield helps makes this the jazziest thing he's ever written -- and it's easily the best track here. He uses spoken word recordings by his late father (a well-known LIFE Magazine columnist), which makes this the ultimate Wainwright family album." -- AllMusic

Dark Empire — From Refuge to Ruin (2012)
Nightmare Records
Mastering Engineer: Scott Hull

"The production is excellent - and a huge improvement over the prior release. For those looking for one track to listen to in order to get an idea of the whole disc, I would recommend turning to the final track “The Cleansing Fires” - 14 minutes that amply represent this entire work in a (large)nutshell. If you like Symphony X and can handle very well-done melo-death influences, or if you are into melodic death metal, but can appreciate tangents into superbly crafted prog metal, this is for you. Highly recommended, without reserve." -- Metal Archives

"The fourth Dave Matthews multi-disc live set to appear in the two years following the 2009 release of Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King, the 2011 Live at Wrigley Field documents a relatively hit-heavy set performed at the famed Chicago ballpark on September 18, 2010. Maybe most fans don’t need another version of “Tripping Billies” or “Jimi Thing” in their library, but DMB plays both with a modicum of vigor, which may be the calling card of this collection." -- AllMusic

The heady stew includes swing, hard bop, mellow jazz, Indian tablas, loose funk, deep rock grooves, electronics, and helter-skelter abandon." -- All About Jazz

John Zorn — Nosferatu (2012)

"Created for a modern Polish stage production of Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale, Zorn has created a music filled with nostalgia, tenderness, violent power and a great sense of mystery. Featuring the dark ambient bass tones of Bill Laswell, the sensitive keyboards of Rob Burger, Kevin Norton on drums, vibes and percussion and Zorn on sax, this is a moody and menacing program of music for late night listening. Romantic ballads, ambient soundscapes and hardcore intensity!" -- Downtown Music Gallery

Derek Bailey — Ballads (2002)

"Still, there's something to be said about an old dog, new tricks and a lifetime of artistic expression: Ballads is a remarkable record for Bailey. As on recent efforts such as 2000's Mirakle or 1998's Play Backs, the concept places Bailey in a strange context and observes the outcome. However, instead of putting him in a group or adding strange studio effects, the gimmick here is Bailey's interpretations of classic tunes written by the likes of Hoagy Carmichael and Victor Young." -- Pitchfork
