    Diddy - Press Play (Bad Boy)

    The Bad Boy roster closed the millennium spitting lyrics over an inane series of '80s classics, a movement that screamed of selling out. However, No Way Out, Diddy's 1997 vanity-rap debut, went seven times platinum on the strength of the Bowie-sampli...

    Buddy Guy - Can't Quit the Blues (Sony)

    Along with B.B. King, George "Buddy" Guy is perhaps the quintessential modern blues singer/guitarist. Born in 1936, Guy came from the original wave of Chicago blues players who made a major impact on rock 'n' roll, establishing himself with Howlin' W...

    Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album (Ape)

    Either Andy Partridge has way too much time on his hands or he's simply too prolific to be reined in by the confines of XTC, the proto-punk band-turned-Beatles/Beach Boys disciples he founded nearly three decades ago. It's likely a bit of both; after...

    Army of Anyone - Army of Anyone (Firm Music)

    Although Army of Anyone features half of Stone Temple Pilots as well as former Filter lead singer Richard Patrick, the whole isn't greater than the sum of its parts. None of the tracks on the group's debut smolders quite like Filter's mid-'90s breakt...

    Ben Folds - Supersunnyspeedgraphic: The LP (Sony)

    Ben Folds plays the ivory keys like an 11-fingered man suckled on Elton John records. The former front man and namesake of the Ben Folds Five has a clamant, albeit sometimes goofy, presence and an overwhelming talent that at times makes it hard to di...

    Pitbull - El Mariel (TVT)

    Pitbull's newest CD, El Mariel, includes lines like "Welcome to the real Dade County/Where we're soldiers from birth to the hearse/That's why my childhood included a bulletproof vest," and "Welcome to the real Miami/Where we live to die." Typical rap...

    New and Improv'd - Reggae is only the beginning

    Walk into Trax on a Monday night, as I did recently to grab a beer, and you'll run into a strange amalgamation of sonic styles emanating from the outdoor stage in the back, courtesy of the Dave Wade Trio. I saw the Dave Wade Trio accidentally the...

    The Headbangers Have a Ball - Lush life at karaoke night

    Face it, you haven't lived until you've seen your friends make asses of themselves at karaoke. On a Saturday night in mid-November, I'm about to launch an alcohol-fueled audio assault on the croaky-oke crowd, along with my friends Bones, Chazz, To...

    For the Rest of Us - Sufficiently strong soup

    Glam-O-Rama - Drunken dancing and drama

    The Phoenix indie crowd has a new pit stop on their Friday-night boozing agenda. Glam (formerly Ky's Place), at 32nd Street and Indian School Road, is a perfectly petite dance club stuck in a strip mall. The place goes nuts after midnight, when the p...

    Great Expectations - Following the Trail of Dead

    . . . And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead may be a victim of its own success. The Austin-based post-rock group's ragged and glorious indie-punk albums, like 1999's Madonna, and 2002's brilliant Source Tags & Codes, didn't make it onto the Bi...

    George Bowman's "Tribute to Maxine Johnson" - Lady got back

    The Melvins - Grunge zero

    Kurt Cobain loved The Melvins. Without that band's influence, there would be no grunge. The outfit un-cheesed Sabbath and created truly evil-sounding metal that directed future generations toward methodical bass lines and sick distortion. Cobain (the...

    All-American Rejects - There's a Lego game?

    Somewhere, "power-pop" sticklers are brooding that these Oklahomans can't possibly apply that mantle to what it is that they do. According to most universally accepted theorems, most power-pop bands are in their late 30s and early 40s, unless they ha...

    Copeland - Define at your own risk

    Piano rock, schmiano rock. What Copeland produces is something much more than the recycled Ben Folds schmaltz typical of most ivories-oriented groups. Both Beneath Medicine Tree, the quartet's 2003 debut, and In Motion, its 2005 breakthrough, were aw...
