Radiohead - In Rainbows The war for the music industry is as bitter and unfathomable as any civil war; consumers sued, labels rendered nothing more than marketing departments, and savvy artists taking control. With Radiohead’s independent release of its new, seventh studio album, In Rainbows, available in downloadable format from the band’s website for whatever price fans wish to pay, an imaginary but significant line has been crossed in the minds of the record-buying market, i.e., us. As the band’s website says of the price, “No, really. It’s up to you.” Recording industry palpitations grow more rapid as fans welcome a manifest recognition of the new world, and a number of major bands are making plans to follow suit in one form or another.

Eddie Vedder - Into the Wild (Deluxe Edition) Into the Wild (Music from the Motion Picture) is like a peek into the beat-up notebook Eddie Vedder carries everywhere, and is almost everything that you’d want (and expect) from an EV solo project.

John Mellencamp - Freedom's Road I don’t really know him but I’m pretty sure John Mellencamp is, as my old man used to say, “a stand-up, kiss-my-ass kind of guy,” and his latest release, Freedom’s Road, is a stand-up, kiss-my-ass kind of album. And that’s cool. My friends think I’m crazy because I like JM, but I don’t really know why they don’t like him. Maybe it’s the Cougar thing, or a revolt against the production on “Jack and Diane.” Maybe it’s the plain language of his artistic voice. Or maybe he’s just not cool enough. All I know is when I say something like “Hey, the new Mellencamp’s really good,” I’m greeted with eye rolling and a smug nod. First off: he’s not cool. But I don’t think he’s worried about it. Second, there’s nothing wrong with striving to be your generation’s Woody Guthrie. Any populist ...
