    Panacea - Drink it raw

    Northern California duo Panacea makes the kind of dreamy, mystical hip-hop that mid-'90s Bush Babees fans would find familiar. They make songs like "Ecosphere," where producer K-Murdock makes soulful and yearning tracks that rapper Raw Poetic chops u...

    Dashboard Confessional - Carabba's Italian whine ages well

    Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carabba has an understandable reputation as the father of contemporary emo, which he most likely earned by penning weepy, whiny songs about how much girls have messed him up. Listening to his albums is generally ...

    Bloodfest 2 - Dance at their wedding

    Remember Quentin Tarantino's sensational revenge flick Kill Bill Vol. 1, particularly when the Texas Rangers happened upon the gory, blood-splattered aftermath of a slaughtered wedding party? That's probably what you'll see near the end of Bloodfest ...

    Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - Love Their Country (Fat Wreck Chords)

    Never base your music on an identity crisis just ask Chris Gaines. Don't remember Gaines? In one of the greatest missteps in recent music history, Garth Brooks attempted to transfigure himself from paunchy Fortune 500 cowboy to pouty goth-rock sing...

    The Kid's All Right - Piano woman

    Woe betide the child who springs singing from the loins of a rock star. Sure, it might be nice to have Drew Barrymore and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe for godparents, like Frances Bean Cobain. Or to have received your first guitar from KISS' Gene Simmon...

    Compile the best of R.E.M.'s earliest output on one CD, and it's easy to see why they ultimately became one of the biggest bands in the world: optimism. That's the overwhelming feeling pervading Fine, a smartly sequenced collection spanning the Athen...

    The Songs Are Not the Same - Followed or Led

    Should a plumber receive a royalty check every time a toilet he's installed is flushed? It's an interesting question, posed by Led Zeppelin biographer Alan Clayson as he mounts a defense of what others have characterized as outright theft in the Led ...

    Punk Debunked - Rockabilly club

    "This ain't no history lesson," snarls the opening line to the liner notes of Rockin' Bones: 1950s Punk & Rockabilly (Rhino/Wea), an excellent four-CD boxed set. "It's about attitude! This is where punk rock began!" To me, the first and last of t...

    Various Artists - Drum Nation Volume 3 (Magna Carta)

    The drummers of rock 'n' roll lore are either dead (Cozy Powell, John Bonham), notorious chick-magnet partyers (Tommy Lee), or both (Keith Moon, Benny Benjamin). The drummers on Drum Nation Volume 3 are none of the above. But they are some of the hea...

    Portastatic - Be Still Please (Merge)

    For those who miss the raw, adolescent, power-crunch pop of Superchunk's early days, Mac McCaughan's new Portastatic album may be disappointing. The Merge Records head honcho has crafted his most adult effort to date, full of oboe, flute, and string ...

    Goodyfest - More positive than it sounds

    Celtic Frost - Swiss mess

    Celtic Frost is one of the few '80s thrash giants that hasn't been co-opted by the forces of hipster irony. The Swiss hellions released an inexplicable (and excellent) hair metal album in 1988's Cold Lake, but that's not what you want from the death/...

    From First to Last - To screech his own

    James McMurtry - Lyric poetry

    Let's face it. Most singer-songwriter music is lukewarm high school poetry without the hooks and energy that seem to make the lukewarm high school poetry you get with Fall Out Boy or even Ashlee Simpson that much easier to swallow. Then, there's ...
