On the radio waves for the past few weeks, I've caught 105.9's Dave Frisina frequently promoting guitarist Tommy Emmanuel's concert with a repeated refrain: As usual, Frisina nailed it.

[Album Reviews] Chris Brown - X

Chris Brown's attempts at appealing to all corners of the urban pop spectrum at-present are commendable, but possibly a case of the vocalist doing too much. Regardless of their more recent failures or successes, some celebrities remain inextricably linked to a past incident instead of their craft.
