Seeing as I was raised on a healthy diet of early-90’s Amy Grant (thank you, Mom), I feel like my entire childhood was preparing me for the year 2015 in music: The Year of Girl Pop. Pop music delivered by strong female leads has been very prevalent in mainstream music for decades. However, never have […]


Can you choose the 5 albums that define your life? I have attempted to do just that. Bear in mind, these are not necessarily my 5 favorite albums (although a few are in the running). These are the albums that define different stages of my life through their personal impact or a just-the-right-album-at-the-right-time quality. Together, they […]


If you’re reading this post it means one of two things, either the Mayan prophecies were flat out wrong, or they simply didn’t anticipate that my contribution to CKTK’s Top 10-A-Palooza would save all mankind. As with any near-death experience, 2012 has moved us to reflect. We gaze deeply into ourselves… and by that I […]


Here we go. Four simple categories, 41 albums, one amazing song. This is how CK’s year-end analysis begins. HONORABLE MENTION: Number 11 through 15 on my top ten list, in alphabetical order. These albums are given the same full review as the top ten (coming soon!). This year, you get a bonus 16th record! WORTH NOTICING: […]


2010 in music was marked by a few things: *It was the year that Americans finally learned how to party like the rest of the world. That’s right… trance/dance beats and riffs have taken over pop music charts and every self-respecting party animal and nightlife layperson is better off because of it. Hell, even Enrique […]


Another year, another top 10 list. The biggest change in the way I experienced music since 2009 is the death of lala.com. Fortunately, I was still able to find places online to listen to most albums that I was curious about. The public library has also become my friend. Unfortunately, that means I won’t have […]


Here we go again! It’s now officially halfway through the year 2010. TK is busy hiking the Pacific Coast Trail, so I’m holding down CKTK duties while he’s gone. During the first half of this year, we officially launched our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Check those out for more frequent updates. Also, I just launched […]


As you may have noticed last week, CK got tipsy on typing with his Sasquatch Saturday Recap. He will continue these frisky frollicks into the future, but for now, you’re stuck with Tk’s Sasquatch Squawkin’. This squawk session is extra special considering that I will be out of commission for a while after this post […]


Hello all! Here’s a narcissistic “coming soon” post. I hope you hate it. First of all, you’ll notice a new button on the sidebar, right under the link to our Facebook page. This weekend, we opened up the official CKTK Twitter account! You can follow us at @CKTKmusic. It’s kind of a stream-of-consciousness place where […]


As I was listening to The Tallest Man On Earth’s fantastic new record last week, I started thinking to myself, “this is such an autumn/winter record. This record doesn’t sound like something I should be listening to now.” It’s a great record, but it doesn’t especially lend itself to listening at max volume with the […]
