    The Hate Parade

    In their classic soul ballad, the Persuaders persuaded pop fans that "there's a thin line between love and hate." In their fine cover of that classic soul ballad, Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders pretended to agree. But the truth of the matter is th...

    Metallica Reload (Elektra) Put plainly, Metallica's last album, 1996's Load, made me angry: To see a band that I had always valued for its integrity change its music for what appeared to be commercial reasons was deeply frustrating. But aft...

    The Return of Art Rock

    Museums tend to be quiet places, but the silence that gripped the galleries of the Lowe Museum on a recent visit seemed out of sync with the exhibition, "It's Only Rock and Roll." This ambitious if ultimately ungainly effort showcases contemporary ar...

    Unsung Heroes

    Who do you think of when you hear the song "Dude (Looks like a Lady)"? Regrettably enough, you probably think of Steven Tyler, the scrawny, fat-lipped lead singer of Aerosmith. If someone asked you who wrote the song, you'd probably assume Tyler. One...

    Lisa Loeb Firecracker (Geffen) What's been so refreshing about Lisa Loeb up to now is that she has never tried to sell anyone false goods. Unlike Alanis or Courtney or any of rock's other young women, Loeb never pretended to be angry. Rocke...

    A Lounge of Their Own

    Tucked away in a courtyard off Lincoln Road, between Euclid and Pennsylvania avenues, the Bee Hive Lounge has the look and feel of a comfy dungeon. Lit mostly by candles perched on shaky iron stands, the small room features a row of large windows shi...

    The Sweet Buy and Buy

    It's the official season of yuletide and cross-promotion, in case you hadn't noticed. And, because Jesus Christ was such a huge music fan, record companies have seen fit to dump the expected cavalcade of crap unto us, the wee consumers. If we were fe...

    Into EachLife a Little Ray Must Fall

    It was the day my Ray Charles Genius & Soul: 50th Anniversary Collection five-CD box set arrived in the mail from Rhino Records and I was telling this friend of mine about it over the phone. It's great, I told him, tremendous. He said something ...

    They Never Met a Genre They Didn't Like

    The Box is a cramped art gallery located in a jumble of warehouses off the Palmetto Expressway in South Miami. Jorge Elbrecht and Justin Gracer, the progressive pop duo known as J.E. & Justin G., are waiting here, as patiently as they can, for a bigg...

    Door to Doors

    The mythology surrounding the 1969 appearance by the Doors at Dinner Key Auditorium is as thick and obscuring as smoke from a magician's flashpot. Revisionists like Oliver Stone, who directed The Doors, a 1991 hagiography of the band, have done their...

    The Outsiders

    Inner Circle vocalist Kris Bentley recalls when the band performed for an audience of 60,000 at an 1995 outdoor festival in Switzerland. "We're playing with a lot of big guys," Bentley says, "Elton John, Page, and Plant." "Lenny Kravitz," adds d...

    Some Girls

    Sarah McLachlan has only herself to blame. After all, in a country where Baywatch can pass as high drama, her idea to put together Lilith Fair, a pop music road extravaganza spotlighting women artists, was bound to score inordinate media attention on...

    The King of Ocean Drive

    At sundown, they come. From all over South Florida and all over the world, they come to hear and see him. They are his loyal subjects and he is their king. He rules over no country, no state, no province. Just a street. A glitzy, noisy, congested, ex...

    The loudest band in South Florida has quietly been crisscrossing the country on tour, releasing a slew of material, collaborating with fellow underground phenoms, and buying more amps. Although all four members of Cavity grew up in Dade, the gro...

    Paying the Rant

    Jessicka, the tousled, strident lead singer and lyricist of the metal-goth band Jack Off Jill, is relaying something to me that John Lennon once said about music being therapy for the masses. This is one way that she justifies her "tidings of bale" (...

    Exile on Easy Street

    When Keith Richards gets aroused, he gets a wild, distant look in his eye, his voice cracks, and his left leg rises slightly, the way a cat's hindquarters do when you stroke its butt. It happens when he plays a signature guitar line, like in "Honky T...
