    Murder, My Sweet - Thug Love Is All Around

    Hegemony, as described by in-vogue Italian theorist Antonio Gramsci, relies on a combination of force and consent. The Security Council approval of the U.S. resolution on Iraq, for example, is force couched as consent. On the other hand, Ja Rule and ...

    All the Clich to Heaven - Who's Your Daddy?

    Say this much for Nas: He knows how to draw a parallel. Ever since "Hate Me Now," he has been calling himself Christ to all within earshot. His comparison makes sense, but for the wrong reason. There hasn't been much divine about a Nas album for almo...

    Out of the Territories - Steven Bernstein's Old-Timey Jazz Comes in From the Cold

    Steven Bernstein has been so much a part of the downtown cultural exchange, through which the usual suspects are transmitted from one band to another in an endless game of musical chairs where the last man standing has to get a real job, it was surpr...

    Man of Substance - Might Even Be Said to Possess a Mind

    It's charming to think Stanley Crouch grew Wynton Marsalis in a petri dish. But fact is, Marsalis is an independent thinker whose boyish charm gets confused for loud arrogance simply because he's prideful, powerful, and pretty. And he's no false prop...

    World on a String The last time I saw Randy Weston, he concluded a conversation about a holy trinity of pianists with a proclamation of solidarity. "I'm like you," he told me. "I'm a fan. I'm doing this for Mr. Ellington, Mr. Tatum, and Mr. Monk....

    Probably Not

    At the end of the day Audioslave are simply a bore. Predictable, pedestrian, pro forma. Less than the sum of their parts, the album and the band don't even amount to an interesting failure, because the known quantities do what they have always done o...

    Given hip hop's belief in Santa Claus, a/k/a the Christmas market, figure the many rap records below (don't stop till you get to Duds, now) constitute a first installment. Haven't even gotten some yet. People who believe in Santa Claus often think it...

    Fuckin' Wit Da Best - Face From the Block

    Lording over the Dirty South like it was still the Wild West, Brad Jordan, a/k/a Scarface, plays the drums, gets numb, rocks Carolina-blue sweatsuits, and makes you look. Geto Boy, Def Jam South CEO, and crypt keeper for countless souls snuffed out o...

    Whiskers in the Dark - Mama's Got a Litterbox, Daddy Never Sleeps at Night

    Women are uniquely qualified to make angry music. The rage of a girl seeing all the baggage she's going to have to lug around has no equal. But girls tend to internalize anger, because that's what's expected. Break bottles in the street, and Mom frea...

    Ride Hard, Die Hard - Under-the-Table-Again Rock

    Raw wrath and metal roll always win out. No matter how retro or staid, the best hard rock in 2002, by far, came from those who instinctively grasped that respect must be paid to ground broken in the mid '70s, not only by the big guns but also by the ...

    Best Jazz CDs of 2002 - Everything That Rises Must Converge

    As the wheels of capital grind remorselessly to the tune of impossible profit projections, jazz grows increasingly irrelevant to the dominant record labels. Atlantic vanished; Columbia recycled Miles; Concord Jazz did singers; BMG and Warners hardly ...

    999 Luftballons - Shameless Eurocheese Puts the Tears and Tempo Back Into Dance Music

    San Francisco finally has a genuine dance radio station, one of about five in America, and it would make most "superstar" DJs puke. It offers no extended mixes, no tribal trax, no progressive house dubs, breakbeat instrumentals, or underground design...

    Cutter's Way

    The Hammond organ comes from the church, where unity matters and rugged individualism doesn't. So why praise one organist at the expense of others? Well, because even in a jazz world that values difference and welcomes diversity, there's room for com...
