If last week's tm3am.com column was about a long-running band surpassing my expectations, this week's is about two of them falling short. I wanted to love both the new Crowded House, Intriguer, and the self-titled debut EP from Trent Reznor's new project, How to Destroy Angels. But I didn't, and in this week's column, I explain why.
But don't despair, music fans. I also praised Sia's new one, We Are Born, for being a well-crafted, frothy dance platter extraordinaire. You can read all three reviews at tm3am.com right now, and then come on back here when you're done to leave me a comment.
