R.E.M. - Out of Time artist: R.E.M. function popUp(URL,NAME) {,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.write(""); document.close(); album: Out of Time format: DVD/CD label: Warner Bros. release year: 2005 performance: 9 sound 9 reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh Out Of Time represents one of R.E.M.’s greatest musical achievements. You may recall that this recording was made back when vocalist Michael Stipe stopped mumbling and started to really come into his own as a songwriter. This work also nicely mixed together familiar band musical elements with a few welcome new touches. As an artistic statement, this one was not out of time, but rather precisely right on time.

LTJ Bukem - Planet Audio artist: LTJ Bukem This title is currently not available on album: Planet Earth format: DTS-ES DVD label: Good Looking Records release year: 2005 performance: 8 sound 9 reviewed by: Paul Lingas A compilation of beats, riffs, hooks, mashes, slams and jams, Planet Earth takes some of the best mixes by a variety of DJs and MCs and spins them together in one fantastic-sounding CD. Hailing from the U.K., LTJ Bukem is well known throughout the world for his unique ability to create a fusion of many types of music with classic drum ’n’ bass. Often called the godfather of modern drum ’n’ bass, LTJ Bukem has made a career in combining hip hop, soul, acid jazz and tired dance music into dance beats that call attention to themselves not only for their energy, but also for their unique sounds.

The result of that was a string of “20 or so incendiary gigs” (according to Alvin), with the real Blasters playing together for the first time in 16 years. This was all capped by a night on August 13, 2003 at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, California. This is the resulting recording of that night. Having never been a huge Blasters fan in the past, I had to approach this review with a brand new set of ears. While ...

Surf City Allstar Band - I Get Surround artist: Surf City Allstar Band This title is not currently available on Amazon album: I Get Surround format: DVD-Audio label: AIX Records release year: 2004 performance: 5 sound: 6 special features: full band biographies; commentaries; interviews; discography; photo gallery reviewed by: Jeff Fish One of the things that California will always be known for is the sound of surf music. It was the soundtrack of the ‘60s and even though The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Motown are what’s remembered most from ‘60s music, surf music was one of the decade’s best sellers. The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, The Ventures and Dick Dale have all made their mark on rock ‘n’ roll.

The Polyphonic Spree - Together We're Happy artist: The Polyphonic Spree This title is not currently available on Amazon album: Together We're Heavy format: DVD-Audio label: DTS Entertainment release year: 2004 performance: 7 sound 8.5 reviewed by: Bryan Dailey I learned in music school that if you want to have any chance of making a lot of money in the music biz performing in a band, keep the number of members in the group small so you don’t have to divide up the royalty checks too many ways. The Polyphonic Spree, a band consisting of over 20 members, led by Tripping Daisies frontman Tim DeLaughter, is going to have to do some serious math to divvy up the money should their latest album Together We’re Heavy recoup its expenses and become a financial success. The fine folks at DTS felt the album was such a success creatively that they approached the band and their labels Hollywood and Good Records to do a DVD-Audio version of the disc.
