    The War Turns Me On - Synthesizers Keep Their Disco Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight

    "You got to start with no fear in your heart." Not a possibility. A.R.E. Weapons are all about the fear in our hearts; their album knows this, even if the lead singer can't quite articulate it. There's the danger guy: You pass him on the street; he's...

    With God on Our Side - Today's Pop-Gospel Albums Affirm the Persistence of Faith Through Adversity

    Much the way there are no atheists in foxholes, you'll find even fewer unbelievers in Black America. Constant danger, risible ironies, and ontological uncertainty remain spirituality's best friend. An index of our particular attachment to Judeo-Chris...

    A Great Lost Age of Alcoholic Hip-Hop - The March Of Ides

    Cynics decry big, bad, materialistic hip-hop nowadays for being indistinguishable from commercials, but all the haranguing overlooks the long-standing weakness rappers have shown for product placement, paid or otherwise. Also-rans Mr. X and Mr. Z's 1...
