The week that was in music:
“Weird Al” Yankovic made Lady Gaga blink.
Beyoncé overloaded everyone’s eardrums.
Fleetwood Mac is in rock critics’ comfort zone.
Gerard Way of MCR loves Liza Minnelli and visions of the apocalypse.
PJ Harvey made Terminal 5 tolerable.
Stefano Langone is a Lan-goner get it?
Wye Oak blew our minds with their Danzig cover.
And finally, our condolences to the friends, family, and loved ones of TV on the Radio’s Gerard Smith, who passed away Wednesday.
