Opium Traces

Saturday, December 31 1994

Royal Crown Revue, The Contender

Sun Ra: reissues

Remy Zero, Villa Elaine

With very little fanfare, Alabama-bred Remy Zero have done the near impossible—they’ve squeezed some originality and drop-dead beauty out of the standard guitar band format.

Rollins Band: Get Some Go Again

The Revelers, Day In, Day Out

The Revelers have crafted a near-perfect album of R&B and pop. Without a doubt, Cleveland Rocks, it just has to send its best band’s ears across the Atlantic to do it.

Reverse: self-titled

Rustic Overtones: Volume Up

Josh Rouse: Home

Joshua Redman: Beyond

Queensrÿche, Q2k

Q-Tip: Amplified

    Paloalto: self-titled

Paula Cole Band, Amen

Pope Factory

Coming at you with a barrage of dissonant guitars not unlike that of Yo La Tengo or Pavement, Pope Factory proves that Sloan isn’t the only good indie rock coming from north of the American border.

Rose Polenzani, Anybody

    Pele: Realize It

Pocket Size, 100 Percent Human

It’s an altogether swirling affair that is utterly complete and satisfying. Sweet dreams are made of this.

Poster Children: DDD

The last year has been the most prolific period of Poster Children’s long and illustrious career.

Pinback: Some Voices

Prolapse, Ghosts of Dead Aeroplanes

Prolapse’s post-punk, guitar noise rock is hypnotic, trance-inducing, and mind-blowing all at once.

    Pushcar: Apartment D
