Maxwell - MTV Unplugged Unplugged (EP), Columbia | Performance 9 | Sound 9 | Yes, this is an EP. Yes, it only contains seven songs. So why are we reviewing it? Two reasons: one, it is the first and only live Maxwell out there; two, it is that impressive. Not so much in that Maxwell can make live versions of his songs sound both fresh and original, but in that he can take other artists' work and make them his own. Case in point, five of the songs on this EP are his, two are not. And these two cuts are just about as different as they come.

Miles Davis and Milt Jackson - Quintet/Sextet With The All Star Quintet, DCC Jazz Performance 8.5 Sound 7 I always wonder how many more of these Miles Davis CDs I can buy? Each effort from this jazzy renaissance man's career captures a different, distinctive vibe. This effort, recorded in 1955 (in mono) captures Miles and the legendary Milt Jackson on vibes along with a talented sextet including Ray Bryant on Piano, Jacky McLean on Alto, Percy Heath on Bass and Arthur Taylor on Drums. The musical textures transcend the monaural recording to take you far away from wherever you are.

Prodigy - Fat of the Land Fat of the Land, Maverick Records | Performance 7 | Sound 6 | Eccentric would be one way to describe them. Neurotic would be another. Prodigy is a techno, hip hop and pseudo rap train wreck that has thousands of people intrigued including Madonna, who signed the group on her Maverick Records.

John Lydon - Psycho's Path Psycho's Path Dreamworks Records | Performance 4 | Sound 4.5 | The aptly titled 'Filthy Lucre' tour not withstanding, it's been years since Johnny Lydon shed the shackles of the Sex Pistol's and the undying legend of Sid Vicious, and after all this time there's always been one thing the world has loved about him. His anger. Even before he and Public Image Limited coined the phrase, we knew that `anger is an energy' just because we heard his voice. It was the voice and anger of someone fueling the fire of the punk revolution. Compiled over the past year or so, "Psycho's Path" is Lydon's first real solo attempt. And 'attempt' is really the only way to name this album. The trend in this world seems to be that everybody mellows with age, but for some reason we hoped Johnny would be impervious to this trend as he was to all others. Unfortunately what ...

The Geraldine Fibbers - Butch Butch Virgin Records | Performance 3 | Sound 4 | All right, I'll admit it, I don't get this band. I don't have a clue as to what they're trying to do. At least I'm honest. They've got a country/folk/rock/punk melting pot going on here within 'Butch' and, honestly, I think this broth may not have simmered long enough because it just doesn't taste done yet. If they were going for punk, I'd much rather have reached for my trusty Sex Pistols disc. Folky rock, I'd have probably pulled Ben Harper off the shelf. Country . . . well, if it was country I'd have probably gone to lunch.
