    The Beast of Both Worlds - Rappers and R&B Singers Unite for Commerces Common Cause

    Suddenly, our pop world is a place where rap thugs and r&b crooners live, breed, and spread together en masse. The Billboard charts are patchworkFat Joe and Ashanti, Ja Rule and Ashanti, P. Diddy and Usher, Jennifer Lopez and Nas, Mary J. Blige and ...

    Like a Virgin

    Who will reconcile Ashanti's divided soul? Not her. Certainly not her. In song and in conversation, she barely admits to the contradictions she straddles: r&b sweetness and hip-hop sex talk; Ivy League aspirations and street hustle; girls and boys. A...

    White American - Eminem Makes His Rock Move

    The Eminem song of the year is now and will forever remain the Pet Shop Boys' "The Night I Fell in Love," where a certainly fictional, probably underage male spends a night with a performer who tells Stan and Dre jokes and shrugs off those homophobia...

    Orajel of the Species

    Mook rock, punk jocks, even if it's rap schlock, it's still rock and roll to me. A nice sentiment, and one I firmly believe, but that doesn't make rock, circa: now, particularly good or anything. We've reached a lull, the kind which prompts critical ...

    Friendly Ghost of a Mullet

    Funk upon a time, when the hairy Feminazi darkness spread across the land, it became necessary for a clown prince to assume the position, a wise fool who could justify or sugarpie the base ballin' ways of batman to wombman. Thus, from Jughead's Archi...

    Cool as Kim Deal

    The Breeders are the only rock band I've liked ever since the dark ages. The dark ages were my early teenage years, a hazy period from around 1994 to 1996 when I enjoyed the brief fame of Ace of Base and the reign of sassy black teenagers like Brandy...

    Mook Back in Anger

    Stuck Mojo's Violate This delivers a postmortem on a rap-metal act angry as hell it missed out on the coin and plaudits of the FDA (Freddy Durst Army). If I read the excuses of their manager's liner notes rightly, their problem is that they were unco...

    Overtones of Eternity - The Wind of Nature Blows Through Toby Twining's Requiem

    If it thinks about it at all, popular opinion may hold that just intonationthe use of purely consonant tunings based on the overtone seriesis the provenance of math geeks with synthesizers. But every major new acoustic work in pure tunings kicks a ...

    Personality - Houston Person Sticks to Your Ribs

    One might argue, though not too strenuously, that three central tribes of tenor saxophonists emerged just after the war: those who played Lester Young hard, those who played him soft, and those who played Illinois Jacquet. All merged their primary in...

    Pop by the Numbers

    The remix is an architect's note on what the fuck's wrong with r&b: basically, verses and choruses. The Neptunes' edit of *NSync's hit "Girlfriend" spends 61 seconds before the first verse: a minimal guitar figure while Nelly rhymes a little. Nelly i...
