Black Crowes, The - Warpaint There aren’t many true chameleons in popular music. I point this out in response to the recent Maxim magazine non-review of the new Black Crowes release, Warpaint, and the faulty logic behind reviewing music you haven’t bothered to listen to. Beyond the dishonesty, and lunacy, of attempting pull such a thing off I sincerely believe that the writer, like most of us, was spoiled by the Beatles ability to reinvent themselves with each release and in doing so change the face and course of music. Sure, Dylan did it too. Think about how he went from folkie to rocker to countrified songster. And maybe we can throw in Prince during that ‘80s period where he morphed from naughty funkster to Hendrix rocker to acid-pop king. And Neil Young always. But the truth is that, beyond a very small handful, even ...

Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV I’m all for new any new distribution model in music. Whether it’s DIY or MySpace or whatever I’m happy to support artists who are creating music they believe in and trying to get it out into the public to be heard. I also believe the massive shift that’s necessary in the music biz is very late coming into the station. It may be getting close, but people still don’t know which platform or where it’s headed.  The different aspects of the music business are now fully interconnected and it’s much easier for an artist to be totally self-contained. Although it still isn’t easy for a kid with a batch of cool songs to pay for a colorful billboard on Sunset Blvd, her music can actually reach many more people. And, unlike a billboard crying out to thousands of motorists who ...

Liam Finn - I'll Be Lightning Why am I struggling so hard to write about a release I really really like? Is it my state of mind? No, it’s pretty good. Could it be a deep sense of ennui, brought about as the result of wading through a stream of corporate music crapola? Maybe. But, upon serious reflection, I think it’s because there’re a million things I can say about Liam Finn’s “I’ll Be Lightning” and all of them are good. It just doesn’t feel normal. Have I lapsed into dreaded hyperbole? I’ve basically stopped listening to the radio because it’s all starting to sound the same. Every once in awhile I’ll give in to my “I just need something new” demons and flip on the car radio, but I find I’m always (and this isn’t hyperbole) disappointed. No matter what station or genre of music, there’s ...

Kate Walsh - Tim's House This is the best gig in the world, at least for me. I get to do the thing that I love the most, listen to music, and follow it up with my second favorite thing, putting words to figurative paper, which then allows me to do my third favorite, voice my snarky semi-reasonable opinions. What could ever go wrong with a dream job like that? Kate Walsh’s Tim’s House, that’s what. The downside to the greatest gig in the world is that I become privileged to a lot of other people’s thoughts and opinions about my reviews. (Please note that I typed privileged with a great amount of sarcasm.) I’m informed about things I should have noticed, or how badly my last review reeked or that I should give up writing under the influence of booze, drugs or combinations of the ...

Sheryl Crow - Detours Apply Sheryl Crow’s Detours directly to the brain. Apply Sheryl Crow’s Detours directly to the brain. Apply Sheryl Crow’s Detours directly to the brain. Since Detours is about as great a release as you’ll ever get from a huge artist producing big product for a mega label, and since I know many of you will probably let it go by without a thought, I figured I’d hit you with a little of the advertising that works on the non-discerning, unsuspecting public these days. Sheryl Crow has made what is easily the most artistically satisfying CD of her recording career. One that is so much better than her last release, the godawful Wildflower, that it’s hard to believe it sprang from the mind of the same person. Detours is proof that under difficult circumstances (in her case: a microscopic intrusion into her private life, ...
