title: The Sugarcubes Live Zabor 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();<br> studio: Rhino MPAA rating: NR starring: The Sugarcubes DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh For many, the Sugarcubes means nothing more than that band Bjork was in prior to going solo. Bjork is an oddball diva, for lack of a better term. But as strange as Bjork is, the Sugarcubes was an even stranger musical outfit. This DVD captures the band in a series of concerts. In many ways, this group can be compared to an Icelandic Talking Heads. This is because its songs were oftentimes emotionally detached. Much of the time, its tunes also sported simple, one-word titles. These one-namers included “Birthday,” “Deus,” “Cowboy” and “Cat.” Even though the group was expressive when it played these songs, you never got the impression it was revealing anything particularly personal about itself.

title: Velvet Redux: Live MCMXCIII 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();<br> studio: Sire/Rhino MPAA rating: NR starring: The Velvet Underground (Lou Reed, John Cale, Moe Tucker, Sterling Morrison) DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh It’s miraculous that this reunion concert happened, and that we now have DVD evidence of it. The Velvet Underground, as a working unit, was just as dysfunctional as the desperate characters in their oftentimes shocking songs. This show was captured in France because the band broke up – again – before that tour even made it to the States. It had been scheduled to open a few dates for U2, which would have been an amazing pairing, especially considering the influence Lou Reed’s music has had upon Bono. But rather than focusing on “the dream that could have been,” we should be thankful to have this fine audio/video document to remember the band by.

title: Deep Purple – Live in California 74 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: Eagle Vision MPAA rating: NR starring: Richie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Jon Lord, Ian Paice DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: K L Poore My wake will be an alcohol-drenched, maudlin affair, rife with cheese- dripping appetizers, half-hearted shoving matches and talk. Lots of talk. Luckily, I won’t be the subject of that boozy chatter for the first hour or so, because my family and friends are a curious lot. No one will even notice the little cardboard box with my name on it sitting there on the coffee table. They’ll start right in on the three things I know everyone in the room has in common: music, movies and politics. Eventually, someone will question why “Remember” by Harry Nilsson is playing repeatedly (my singular request) and that will lead to a discussion about my life-defining love of music. They’ll wind their way ...

Peart’s technical ability is second to none in the world of rock and roll and those who consider jazz to be the true test of a drummer’s real abilities only need to check out Peart’s Buddy Rich tribute album “Burning for Buddy” to see that he has those chops as well. Dubbed “the Professor on the drum kit” by Rush singer Geddy Lee on the 1976 live Rush album “All The World’s a Stage,” which featured Peart’s first-ever extended drum solo on record, this extraordinary musician captivated wannabe drummers around the world (but mostly Canada and the ...

However, I can admit when they put out a product that is a stinker such as their last studio effort, Feedback, a collection of some pretty bad cover songs which were in fact the first-ever recorded non-original Rush songs ever released by the band. As I stated in my review of this album, I was very disappointed in the EP, but if it gives Rush an excuse to go out and play live again to support it, then I’m glad they released it.
