Inside a broken clock, splashing the wine with the 114th Most Acclaimed Album of All Time. A 1985 cult classic is this week's Counterbalance. You'll never be going back home.
The year 2013 is already setting itself out to be the Year of the Comeback. In acknowledgement, Sound Affects looks at ten fantastic returns by artists who had lost their mojo and/or been away for far too long.
Her debut album is a post-rock full-fledged opera about a mountain climber from the 1800s. In short, welcome to the fabulous world of Missy Mazzoli, one of the single most promising musicians out there today (she's also got a story about a Frankensteined accordion, too).
For many, "The Crunge" commences a three-song sequence that makes Houses of the Holy a scattershot mess. We think it's right about when the fun kicks in.
Counterbalance takes the week off, but co-conspirator Eric Klinger is still around to recommend to you the Mighty Shamrocks' three-decade delayed LP.
Blowback is a pop album for the ages because like any great pop effort, it's based in the pleasure principle, but here Tricky takes it completely seriously.
From the type of honest and revealing storytelling that some have mastered to the wit-centric, mind-bending lines that ooze with double entendres and third, fourth, and fifth meanings, the best hip-hop will forever be contingent on the power of its lyrics. Here, PopMatters takes a look at 10 of the best lyricists the rap form has to offer.
Reigning Swedish chanteuse, Sarah Assbring, (aka El Perro del Mar) dishes about the synths on her last album and why she's still writing about disappointment, love, loss, and longing.
The most popular song from Houses of the Holy isn’t the one that stands out as the obvious choice for a single, but that doesn’t mean its place amongst Zeppelin’s revered singles isn’t warranted. Its air of warmth and philosophical openness makes it essential Zeppelin.
I thought I was the Bally table king, but I just handed my pinball crown to the 113th Most Acclaimed Album of All Time. Counterbalance goes rock-operatic with a 1969 magnum opus.
