    Kandieland III - Outside the box

    Remember Candy Land? You know, that ultra-vibrant and ultra-enjoyable confection-laced board game that dominated your childhood and sent you on a jubilant journey traipsing through such realms as the Peppermint Stick Forest or the Molasses Swamp? Thi...

    Jesus H Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse - Jesus H Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse (self-released)

    Go ahead, call them a "novelty act." This nine-member group from NYC is asking for it with songs like "Nipples" (with eloquent lyrics like "Na-uh-na-uh-na-uh-nipples"). But once you've heard "Connecticut's for Fucking," the leadoff track to JHC&tFHot...

    Have Humor, Will Jam - Stupid in a good way

    Evanescence - The Open Door (Wind-Up Records)

    Let's face it on paper, a band that plays classically influenced operatic rock like a new-world Bonnie Tyler or Meat Loaf has about as good a chance of hitting it big as the next Pussycat Dolls (Lord, don't get us started). That is, unless said ban...

    Badly Drawn Boy - Born in the U.K. (Astralwerks)

    Damon Gough makes the same album every time, only more so. Recording under the name Badly Drawn Boy, Gough came to prominence with The Hour of Bewilderbeast, the sort of lush, overly ambitious debut that promises a career filled with even higher peak...

    Beck - The Information (Interscope)

    This is typically when Beck would hit you with a change-up dim the lights, warm the milk, and go quietly into the darkness to follow the party-rock high jinks of Guero with an album more in keeping with his introspective side. And Nigel Godrich did...

    Robert Pollard - Normal Happiness (Merge Records)

    "When we quit, indie rock will die," Robert Pollard famously boasted about the breakup of his long-running band Guided By Voices. That was 2004, and no matter your feelings about the scrawny, albino art form, you have to admit the sucker hasn't quite...

    The Kohl Heart - Old World beat

    Lindsey Buckingham - In his room

    Lindsey Buckingham has always admired Brian Wilson, but beyond their shared studio perfectionism and reliably good pop instincts, their other great similarity is their strangeness. The former member of Fleetwood Mac thankfully didn't have to suffer t...

    Deftones - Music for a n century

    It's been a while since White Pony established the Deftones as n-metal's answer to Radiohead, embracing moody, operatic grandeur without abandoning the muscle or the shriek. But after retreating a bit from the edge on the more conventionally heavy D...

    Pet Shop Boys - More than fair

    Pet Shop Boys Yes, they're still around. For more than 20 years, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have managed to do to dance-pop what Steely Dan did to jazz-pop bend it on its ear, and turn a shallow pleasure into a bastion of intelligence, satire and ...
