It’s a more than appropriate symbol for this festival, which is the mother of all multi-artist punk rock tours. Let’s face facts: nobody ever expected punk rock to last quite this long. But with Warped about to celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2004, this “little festival that could” continues to keep the traditions of punk rock alive and well.

title: KMFDM - WWIII Tour 2003 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Sanctuary MPAA rating: NR starring: KMFDM (Lucia Cifarelli, Jules Hodgson, Sascha K, Andy Selway, Raymond Watts, Steve White) release year: 2004 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh There’s nothing more frustrating than watching a band struggle with an identity crisis. But that’s exactly what is happening during much of this KMFDM live DVD. Although this group was initially associated with the industrial music scene, it now only hints at such an underground association. There are a lot of angry vocals (including Lucia Cifarelli’s female touch) and banging around going on during this performance, but the music of “The WWIII Tour” rarely ever follows the strict structure typified by most industrial noise/music. Instead, its industrial leanings are mixed together with hints of synth dance music, and a little heavy metal. But instead spicing up its foundational base, these additional elements merely muddy the final product. It’s as if KMFDM has declared World War III ...

title: Tori Amos: Welcome To Sunny Florida function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); a studio: Bridge Entertainment Group/Pink Adobe MPAA rating: None starring: Tori Amos release year: 2004 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh At one point during a between-song moment from this concert DVD, Tori Amos speaks about how the music business once tried to mold her into your typical piano-playing, singer/songwriter. But the feisty and independent-minded Amos will never be confused with Billy “Piano Man” Joel or Elton “Candle in the Wind” John, that’s for darn sure. The closest template for what Amos does is British eccentric Kate Bush, due to their shared personality traits and vocal mannerisms. But having grown up in the American Bible Belt South of North Carolina, there is a Grand Canyon’s difference between the cultural upbringings of Britain’s Bush and America’s Amos. Amos will always be one of a kind.

If so, then you’re in for a treat with the latest release from Los Hombres Calientes. This is a concert DVD that was recorded at The House of Blues in the French Quarter district of New Orleans. The main leaders of the band are Bill Summers, who is a percussionist extrordinaire who has played in Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters for some 20 years now, and Irvin Mayfield, who is a trumpeter’s trumpeter. These guys can definitely play and they’ve surrounded themselves with some outstanding talent in this band. The music swelters from the intense percussion section, where all the band members take a turn at some form of percussion at ...

This DVD blew me away! I personally lost track of Queensryche after Hear in the Now Frontier, so I really didn’t know what to expect from this release. But soon after opening the package I saw “Sign of the Times” from Hear in the Now Frontier, the Pink Floyd classic “Comfortably Numb” and The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” in the song list, so I knew that there were some songs that I at least knew about. I figured what the hell, let’s put this baby on… Let me put it this way, get ready for some of the most intricate, intense and technically challenging progressive metal you’ll hear this year. Not only haven’t Queensryche lost a step, ...
