    Heavy, Man

    Back before there were long-form videos and CD-ROMs for overweening artiste types to wallow in, musicians used the concept album to overextend their half-baked ideas. Not content with letting a single song do its job, groups charged an entire collect...

    High Lonesome Hardships

    The Louvin Brothers were country music's best-ever brother team, and when they titled their greatest album Tragic Songs of Life, they weren't kidding around. Over the course of that record, a woman wanders "this wide world all over," leaving her aban...

    Into the Night

    New Year's Eve again, kiddies. Surely the most overrated night ever to enjoy celebrity. It's the annual call for overindulgence ("amateur night," Jimmy Breslin once dubbed it). Oh, well, no amount of complaining will rid the streets of throngs of clu...

    All the Best

    Uncommon One

    The news that there's a new Van Morrison album out should be thrilling. But for some of us there have been so many Morrison discs in the last year alone that it's a bit anticlimactic. And if anyone mentions that Ronnie Scott or that Georgie Fame is o...

    Reverb

    I used to know a girl who swore that the most useful gauge of whether a relationship would work was how you travel: If you and your partner travel well, with only minimal bickering over this or that, your lovers' fate was as good as sealed; fight lik...

    Into the Night

    Bush Whack

    First, Bush's Gavin Rossdale stole Kurt Cobain's sound, right down to the last sad but fuzzy guitar chord and strangled vocal growl, and then he and his hired helpers rode it to a quintuple-platinum hit with Sixteen Stone, primarily because modern-ro...
