Under 30. REM was it for me. The first band I ever discovered on my own, the first band I ever spent hours reading over the lyrics, the first band I ever consumed as voraciously as possible. I pretty much feel like my taste in music hinges solely on the year I discovered REM. I became a fan later, ...

On a similar note, anyone hear the Talk Show record (STP minus Weiland) that came out around the same time? It's got some good songs on it too. It was like taking STP and removing the heroin, and what you ended up with were some pretty decent melodic alt-rock songs. But as for the singing, it was l...

After the surprisingly mostly excellent Jacksonville City Nights, I was hoping for another winner. I was let down, though -- i think 29 is one of the most miserable, meandering, messes he's put out yet.

Gang of Four rocked live. Like, really rocked. Couldn't believe it. While we're mentioning testicle-shaking concerts, I've got to mention Built to Spill and The Walkmen. Both shows took my nuts, put 'em in a coffee can, rolled them down my parent's gravel driveway, and then handed them back to me w...

Seriously, has no one said "Sexy Sadie" yet? My favorite Beatles song!

I second "Dear Prudence" by the way.

Without John Williams score, I really believe STAR WARS wouldn't have impacted our culture as deeply as it did. Agreed, completely. The music for the OT is absolutely perfect. Without that score, those three original films would seem even cheesier than they border on being. Which proves that with t...
