    You'd think there'd be some mathematical formula that could take into account the manner tossed, and how far, and what exactly "it" was, and tell you the all-time champion of Throwing It All Away. Until this analytic tool is devised, I can only say w...

    Survival of the Fittest

    Ted Nugent still puts more amplification on his stage than all of the current millennium repaints doing the "Detroit" thing combined. It's a critical factor, megatonnage being a stern measure of significance in loud guitar. Think not? Then you're a g...

    When I was a kid, I liked watching fights: It could be red and black ants ganging in my shoebox arena, Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura grappling at the Cow Palace, or my brother and his crew popping and breaking against rival poseurs on busted linoleum ...

    Point Counterpoint - Dave Holland Enlarges His Horizon

    Musical reductions are commonplace, expansions less so. Nineteenth-century virtuosos displayed their wares in keyboard adaptations of symphonies; Gershwin later created a player piano version of his rhapsody. Occasionally, a Stokowski would reverse t...

    Count Five, Have a Psychotic Reaction

    I checked the Oxes' press kit onlinepictures of the band cavorting, but it didn't tell me what I most wanted to learn, which is why they eschew the old Anglo-Saxon "oxen" in favor of the not-yet-English "oxes." I prefer the old myself, and if you di...

    Proggy Went A-Jammin'

    Progressive rock and metal's double-clutching, gnat-note precision smashes headlong into the jamband clan's urge to luxuriate in the never-ending now on Chicago sextet Umphrey's McGee's delightfully titled Local Band Does O.K. It's the jam scene's sl...

    Sharp Blessed Men

    Hooks-laden, woman-(ec)centric (not too intimidatingly enlightened), unimpeachably Texan, yet too dang messin'-with-the-boogie for some (especially re CD mixes of hallowed vinyl), the ZZ(aftig) Top legacy is a good bet for Pop-Goes-the-Country's dude...

    Quiet Desert Storm

    Toby Keith has a strong rich voice, but he lets it sit easilyso easily that it's easy to overlook what a good singer he is. In this he reminds me of Cary Grant, who excelled at light comedy and therefore never pulled off the sort of bravura performa...
