"Baz Corden_You Are Here"

...he's got something, this guy. While most music wears out when you play it over and over trying to figure it out, this doesn't. Maybe this is because the music is so good. Maybe that's because Baz is just so strange. Either way, '_You Are Here' is definitely one of the most intriguing and frustrating CDs of 2008. Listening to it is a bit like being drunk during the day - unnerving, but exhilarating.

"Baz Corden Goes Mobile"

...He takes a bit of jazz, a smidge of blues, and a dash of folk. Sprinkles them with some of the whackiest lyrics you can imagine, leave to bake, and hey presto! There’s a reason one of his tracks was chosen by the world’s sixth largest mobile phone service provider. That reason is he’s very good.
