Talking Heads - Fear of Music Aah, the yelp, the giddy-up, the rhythmic stutter. How unexpectedly refreshing it is to hear the Talking Heads again after all these years – a band whose work has been disturbingly off the radar screen in comparison to the depth and breadth of their influence ever since, even today in the likes of Bloc Party, Arcade Fire and others. When the Heads arrived at NY’s CBGB’s and on college radio with the zany, “look out ma, I’m going crazy” high-pitched squeals of “Psycho Killer,” it was a wild sensory ride for the mind and body, and an arty-alternative to the Ramones’ and the U.K.’s anti-intellectual punk insurgence. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, the band – David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and ex-Modern lover Jerry Harrison – is now celebrating their 30th anniversary with a deluxe DualDisc upgrade of their catalogue, featuring new DVD-Audio Surround Sound mixes ...

Ministry - Animositisomina artist: Ministry 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(); album: Animositisomina format: DualDisc label: Silverline release year: 2004 performance: 4.0 sound 8.0 reviewed by: Paul Lingas Ministry gives us Animositisomina, which continues pretty much right along where you thought Ministry was headed. Using guttural vocals and pounding guitars with cold-cocked hooks, the self-proclaimed forefathers of industrial metal, Paul Barker and Al Jourgensen, have continued here to try to capitalize on their reputation for musical and technological fury. While Ministry clearly have their place in the industrial metal post New Wave pantheon, their music remains largely inaccessible to large audiences and sounds to a great extent like something produced by crazy people who raided a poorly-stocked music store.

Aerosmith - Rockin' the Joint: Live at the Hard Rock artist: Aerosmith 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(); album: Live at the Hard Rock format: DualDisc label: Columbia Records release year: 2006 performance: 7.5 sound: 6 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano There might be no better place to party in Las Vegas than Peter Morton’s Hard Rock Hotel. Despite all of the real estate boom and all of the new bling palaces on the strip and off, the Hard Rock Hotel is the one casino-hotel that understands the principles of old Vegas – the Vegas of the Rat Pack dealing blackjack at the Sands after a show. With hip music blasting and smiles on everyone’s faces (from the staff to the gamblers getting beaten senseless at the tables), the Hard Rock is a party day and night. But the normal festive energy is nothing compared to what can be seen on special nights at the Hard Rock. One of these nights was January 11, 2002 when legendary rock group Aerosmith plugged in at the Joint, the smaller-than-a-stadium venue ...
