You would have a hard disputing that claim with all the success that they have achieved: Top 10 albums, sold-out world tours and even a hit single(!). In a time when most of their contemporaries have called it a day or travel with as many as 10 additional musicians on stage, Yes still does it with what most people consider their greatest and most classic line-up. Jon Anderson still handles what I believe are some of the most challenging vocals ever recorded in rock ‘n’ roll.

title: The Battle For L.A. 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: Xdrnex Films MPAA rating: Not Rated starring: In-Q, Propaganda, Ralphi, Macho, Dert, Jurny Big release year: 2003 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Jessica Amen “The Battle for L.A.” is an approximately one-hour documentary on freestyle rapping in Los Angeles. It focuses on six main freestyle rappers, but also includes footage and coverage of other rappers, DJs and break dancers. One of the first lines in the movie caught my attention right off the bat: “It’s a way to get out your feelings against someone without having to resort to violence.” This was not what I expected from a bunch of tough LA streetwise MCs. The documentary follows these MCs, talking with them, asking questions and filming them freestyle on camera. Dispersed throughout is footage of actual rap battles taking place at both the Green Club in Venice and the Poetry Lounge in Hollywood. Even after living in LA for over five years, these venues ...

Their first three albums - Journey, Look Into the Future and Next – were some of the high points in the San Francisco Bay area music scene from 1975 to 1978. Formed by Aynsley Dunbar, Gregg Rolie, Neil Schon, George Tickner and Ross Valory in 1975, Journey was one of the new breed of bands that were influenced by the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Frank Zappa and Carlos Santana. Rolie and Schon had just left the Santana band, while Dunbar had just departed the Frank Zappa band. With musicianship to match that of the burgeoning fusion music scene Journey was set ...

Aside from a production of "Annie" at age nine, I've never been much of a theatergoer. So I'm going to say upfront that I have no real basis for comparison, when it comes to other productions, staged or filmed, of "Oklahoma!"

title: Shania Twain: Up! Live In Chicago studio: Mercury Nashville MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Shania Twain release year: 2003 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: By Dan MacIntosh Shania Twain is easy on the eyes and may not be too hard on the ears, but she sure can be mighty numbing on the brain cells at times. Dressed in a yellow top that looks like something a bicycle racer might wear during a Tour De France competition, with her bellybutton exposed above tight black pants that connect to the laced-up yellow boots on her feet, she comes off like a busy-bee aerobics instructor/cheerleader who is taking this crowd through 22 hits and album tracks, mostly from her “Up!” album. And although she’s tirelessly up and positive throughout – justifying the title of her recent album -- she won’t soon be confused with any of the world’s great artistic communicators.
