"No Roots" by Faithless

"No Roots" by Faithless

Fans of Faithless 1996 debut release Reverence (which I am one of) have been waiting for a return to form from this house techno group ever since. Music producers Sister Bliss and Rollo (who is the brother of the now uber famous Dido) and especially vocalist/smooth talker Maxi Jazz created a frenzy... [More]

"One Plus One Equals One" by Badly Drawn Boy

"One Plus One Equals One" by Badly Drawn Boy

The bottom line about Badly Drawn Boy, the one that even a fan-boy champion of his masterpiece Hour of the Bewilderbeast doesn't want to face, is that maybe Damon Gough was a flash in the pan. Yes his first album with it's anything-for-a-hook kitchen sink approach, is high on the list of the best re... [More]

"Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" by My Chemical Romance

"Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" by My Chemical Romance

33/4?al Romance sounds like what Gameface could have been if they grew some balls, stopped singing about making cupcakes and started getting aggro and singing about guns, death, murder and homicide for the cause of love. This is some damn fine music from the radioactive power plant marshes of New J... [More]

"Revival" by Reverend Horton Heat

"Revival" by Reverend Horton Heat

Ever since rockabilly master Jim Heath/The Rev stopped recording for Interscope Records after 1998's Space Heater, all of his records since (Spend a Night in the Box, Lucky 7, and this album) have lacked his manic sure-fire gusto and have started to sound the same. Don't get me wrong, The Rev is sti... [More]

"Dead Letters" by The Rasmus

"Dead Letters" by The Rasmus

The American debut by Finland's The Rasmus is not just the sound of a European band singing and playing English and American style alternative pop, it's one of the most self assured pop albums of the year. The songs are tight and concise - free of the over-emphasized melodrama that defines emo or t... [More]

"The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions" by Miles Davis

"The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions" by Miles Davis

After over thirty years the Miles Davis album A Tribute to Jack Johnson has come to be recognized as a triumph of jazz-rock fusion, second only to Davis' "Bitches Brew" album. The album served as the soundtrack to a documentary film about a black boxer whose defiant spirit and triumphant victories... [More]

"Inspiration" by William Hung

"Inspiration" by William Hung

Sure, American Idol reject William Hung is a horrible singer, but we all know that there's something about him that's undeniably entertaining. After all, why would Koch Records give him a $25,000 recording contract if they didn't think people would actually by the CD? Well, I got this CD as a gag... [More]

"Number Ones" by Michael Jackson

"Number Ones" by Michael Jackson

I'm not afraid to admit it. Ever since I was 2 or 3, Michael Jackson has been one of my favorite singers and entertainers. Even though he's become totally bizarre over the years, I'm sure there's still many others out there who feel the same way I do about his music and consummate skills as a perfo... [More]

"Sonic Youth @ the Venue Salt Lake City 7/25/04" by Son...

"Sonic Youth @ the Venue Salt Lake City 7/25/04" by Sonic Youth Live in Concert

Even though I go to at least 50 shows a year around the western United States, very few of them do I anticipate with such girlish glee. For me, Sonic Youth is definitely one of those shows. I've only had one other opportunity to see them before, and it was at the Coachella festival in 2002. The set... [More]

"Punk O Rama 9" by Punk O Rama 9

"Punk O Rama 9" by Punk O Rama 9

It's hard to believe that the guys from Epitaph Records are at it again with a 9th Punk O Rama CD. Since 1994, Epitaph has kept on providing fans with their latest music on these great compilations. Punk O Rama 9 is unique because it features more artists from genres other than punk. This shows h... [More]

"What Are You Listening To?" by The Kinison

"What Are You Listening To?" by The Kinison

Man, these guys are unbelievable! My band, Raining Jade, had the privilege of playing on the same bill with these guys a few months back and they just blew me away and got me addicted. When I saw them play again with the band Momma, it made me want to be a part of that same energetic power that th... [More]

"Where You Want to Be" by Taking Back Sunday

"Where You Want to Be" by Taking Back Sunday

Back when I was in High School, "Emo" was still an underground movement and you were considered "cool" and "not trendy" if you listened to it, or even knew about any of the bands. Flash forward four years later and now Emo is the new grunge/alternative of this decade. All over the radio, MTV, and MT... [More]

"Tyrannosaurus Hives" by The Hives

"Tyrannosaurus Hives" by The Hives

Say what you will about The Hives lead singer Howlin' Pelle Almqvist being nothing but a mini Mick, but the dude's got pizzazz. Sure his cocksure swagger brings to mind the essence of Jagger, but big deal! At least he's a breath of fresh air in this bubble gum pop world we live in. Four years (two f... [More]

"Alone With the Alone" by Time In Malta

"Alone With the Alone" by Time In Malta

I wonder if Equal Vision records are really worried about Armageddon or something because it seems that they have been stock-piling a shit load of bands lately. With heavy hitters Coheed and Cambria, Alexisonfire, Vaux, and Bear vs. Shark tearing around it looks like Equal Vision is about to reign t... [More]

"Good Mourning" by Alkaline Trio

"Good Mourning" by Alkaline Trio

When I was in High School in California (which wasn't too long ago), the Chicago-based Alkaline Trio was one of those bands that all the cool kids (and the wannabe that I was) liked because no one else really knew about them. After all, they weren't on the radio or MTV at the time. I remember thin... [More]
