Each Friday, we'll bring you 10 random CD reviews done in 10 words:
Cantinero Better for the Metaphor Acoustic popster takes the Do-It-Yourself approach for mediocrity.
Celine Dion My Love: Essential Collection I think this would be better used as a frisbee.
Matt Duke Kingdom Underground Possible second-coming of James Blunt, if we needed another.
Escape the Fate This War Is Ours AFI-esque emo-metal would fit right in on Warped Tour.
The Knux Remind Me In 3 Days... Genre-bending hip-hop tries too hard to be Outkast.
Bette Midler Jackpot! The Best Bette Yeah, you can use this one just like Celine Dion's.
Modern Skirts All of Us In Our Night Mellow pop from Athens, Ga., band Snug Harbor Nov. 21.
James Morrison Songs for You, Truths for Me This kind of pop-rock wouldn't impress The Doors' Morrison.
Will Quinlan & The Diviners Navasota Tampa alt-country band presents surprisingly respectable 11-track disc.
Tribe After Tribe M.O.A.B. Rock with far too much filler, not nearly enough killer.
