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


Doug Powell: More


Pitchshifter: Un-UK


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
