OC - Jewelz Jewelz, Payday Records Performance 9 Sound 8.5 After "Word . . . Life" most of the rap world has been wondering one thing about OC. Was it a fluke? submitted for your approval, is "Jewelz," and it's submitted without a trace of a sophomore jinx. Bred in the lyrical stylings of Rakim, OC dismisses any critics he might have had with this gem and serves notice that he simply might just be the best single MC out there today.

DJ Taz - ...Worldwide Worldwide EMI Records | Performance 4 | Sound 3.5 | Sometimes, in our haste to witness what the media would like us to believe is the 'rap war' between the NYC and LA, we forget that there are other spots on the map that put out almost as much rap as either of these cities. Far away from the stairways of the Queensbridge projects and even farther from Slauson and Crenshaw, there is the rap that comes out of the south. Some call it 'booty-rap' and dismiss it as mindless music that wouldn't exist if it weren't for southern club DJ's spinning these records to no end. Unfortunately to buy into that dismisses the fact the Master P. and No Limit Records are selling millions of records.

Tab Two - Tab Two Tab Two, Virgin Records Performance 7 Sound 7.5 Know one thing about The Audio Revolution. We hate fusion. We don't even use the term in the hopes that one day it will all just go away. Still, Tab Two are an interesting act. They're just techno enough to escape our sweeping denouncement of the 'f' word. Coming straight out of Europe to turn us in the right direction is what this two man band is all about.

Killarmy - Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars Quiet Weapons For Silent Wars Priority Records | Performance 6.5 | Sound 6 | If you haven't already prepared yourself for the Wu-Tang invasion, you're best advised to get with the program because you're behind the times. The first full-fledged spawn of Shaolin's finest is Killarmy (soon to be followed by Sunz of Man--just so you know). The high points of this album are that nearly all of the members of this camp have the tools to slay MCs with their bare hands. They also use enough samples from the movie 'Full Metal Jacket' to reinforce the central theme of their mission--world domination. We love world domination. Why do you think we're on the internet?

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Live at Carnegie Hall Live At Carnegie Hall, Epic 1997 Performance 9 Sound 7 Man, do I miss Stevie Ray. This new live 1984 recording of Stevie Ray Vaughan with Double Trouble and special guests: Jimmy Vaughan, Dr. John, Roomful of Blues Horns and Angela Strehli, truly captures the essence of the live event. Like a best of album, "Live at Carnegie Hall" features some great versions of Stevie Ray's most popular songs like "Scuttle Buttin", "Honey Bee", "Cold Shot", "pride and Joy" and "The Things That I used to do".
