    Late in the evening - The legacy of Simon and Garfunkel still shines true

    Alas, poor Simon & Garfunkel. At a time in music when it was more important to be hip and cool than to necessarily be good (sound familiar, kids?), they were so collegiate, so pop, and never quite hip and cool. So why is it that their three-CD boxed ...

    Schleppin' out - Joe Jackson lugs the baggage of a onetime pop star into an ambitious middle age

    He throws it out there, like a pitch that doesn't quite make it to home plate, then he walks away from it. Only later, when the interviewer brings it up again, does Joe Jackson explain what he meant when he said: "I went through a time when I couldn...

    No sparkle, just fade With release dates separated by only a few weeks--and similar musical growth--it's fair to compare Nimrod and So Much for the Afterglow, the latest efforts from Green Day and Everclear, respectively. On Nimrod, Green Day was...

    Bewitched, bothered, bewildered - What to make of Erykah Badu's latest album

    There's no lack of props for hometown-girl-done-good Erykah Badu, who sang, danced, and rapped around town for years before heading to New York and making it big at the tender age of 26. There's nothing green or tender about her mixture of old-school...

    November spawned a Mozza - Morrissey proves that he still matters

    When John Lennon or Noel Gallagher proclaimed to the world--tongue-in-cheek, hopefully--that their respective bands were bigger than Jesus, it could be laughed off as harmless boasting from a pair of musicians drunk on their own success (and more tha...

    Jerry's kids - Jam bands burst into bloom

    The repetitive patterns in rock and the blues are really not that far removed from the drumming that many "primitive" societies employ for social and religious purposes. The steadily increasing popularity of "jam bands"--improvisational groups that b...

    Next step - Colin Boyd's no doormat

    One of the big pitfalls lurking under the surface of most versions of romantic love is an implied masochism, an idea that suffering is somehow relative to emotional depth. It's what scuttles most of what could be referred to (sneeringly or not) as "s...

    The nutty professors - Has the science of Stereolab gone too cool for its own good?

    Hassle class - Roadcrew tries to ease the rigors of playing live
