    Don't Go Chasing Wonderwalls

    Because (What's the Story) Morning Glory is my favorite hard rock album of the '90s, and because Noel and Liam Gallagher look so damn cool in dark shades, I always find myself a little more absorbed than is probably healthy for a person my age in the...

    Still Not Just Art in a Cage

    When rock stars sing love songs to their radio, you know something's fucked. Billy Corgan does it four cuts into Machina/The Machines of God, an album unapologetically positioned as the Smashing Pumpkins' commercial comeback, and it's oddly intimate,...

    Write a Book, Dude!

    Eels front man A Man Called E wrote both "Novocaine for the Soul" (a catchily morose request for a stronger-than-chicken-soup cure for pain, with guitars that flopped and quivered like upset stomachs) and Electro-Shock Blues (a little-heard, seemingl...

    Opera Rad - Robert Ashley Releases His Most Accessible Work

    Afrobeat Generations

    Am I the only one who finds the more or less coincident release by MCA of a chunk of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti's catalog and elder son Femi's first major-label album to be un peu gauche? An almost endearingly classic Oedipal anxiety surrounds the marketing...

    Jesus Saves I was at Radio City for Q-Tip, who didn't show. R&B Jesus I was just checking out. D'Angelo isn't a songwriter, not really; the Marvin comparisons are the exaggerations of r&b faithful yearning to be led out of the wilderness, and the r...

    All Ears - Disney Dreams Up the Best Radio Station in 30 Years

    THE seminal moment of the teenpop era is of course in the Clueless movie, where Cher refers to college-rock R.E.M.-crap as "mope rock," or "dope rock," or "slope rock," whatever. When Hollywood says it in a script, it's alllllllll over. Anyone who ru...

    Robert Smith is my hero because he didn't kill himself after he made Pornography. That 1982 album is the spike in the Cure's career, the high point and the easiest thing to get impaled on; it's the one that begins "It doesn't matter if we all die" an...

    Scritti Politti's Green Gartside is something of a pop Zelig. Emerging from the avant-garde postpunk U.K. scene of the late '70s, Gartside led an early lefty-intellectual version of Scritti, sharing a record label (Rough Trade) with the Raincoats and...
