    Lupe Fiasco - Lupe Fiasco's The Cool (Atlantic)

    Though some believe Lupe Fiasco is too smart for mainstream rap, thats not exactly true. Most of the lyrics on his sophomore release, Lupe Fiascos The Cool, are pretty basic, clichd stuff, right down to the CDs opening monologue, They thought it...

    Acapulco-Five-O

    If the term "butt-shake" isn't part of your musical vernacular, you'd better get hip ASAP and have a listen to Phoenix's own Acapulco-Five-O. Inspired by '50s and '60s spy music, go-go, Latin exotica, and, of course, butt-shake, Acapulco-Five-O was d...

    Your Brain on Music - Science starts to unravel our natural affinity

    How does music engage and touch us so deeply? Why is its presence so intrinsic to what we do? It's everywhere, from stereos and headphones to movie soundtracks and commercials. Even our voices possess a unique musicality. It's hardly essential to lif...

    How is it that two of 2007's top sellers -- Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears -- sold more than a million records in the U.S. without touring the U.S. this year? It's because pity has become the new indispensable promotional tool. See how your faves h...

    Music for the Eyes - A bevy of new music DVDs, just in time for the holidays

    Music DVDs are typically used as stopgaps between CD releases or to drum up support for some other project an artist is promoting. Most amount to little more than music-video compilations, hastily shot concert films, or the latest chapters in continu...

    An Emotional Response

    Annals of Bad Band Names

    Perhaps it's unfair to pick on bands for choosing silly names (like I did with the boys in An Aesthetic here a while back), but sometimes the words just beg for it. Like with What Laura Says Thinks and Feels, which I assumed was an emo band (because...
