Stan Getz: The Very Best of Stan Getz

Neko Case: Blacklisted

Still, if given just a token listen and treated like nothing more than background music, the true depth of Blacklisted is missed. The one aspect of the record that marks a stylistic quantum leap from Furnace Room Lullaby is the quality of Case’s lyrics.


Stephen Ashbrook: American B Sides

Acid House Kings: Mondays Are Like Tuesdays and Tuesdays Are Like Wednesdays

    Liars: They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top

Maggie and the Ferocious Beast: Adventures in Nowhere Land

Maggie is more intent on teaching life lessons than providing visual candy or sheer entertainment; this is granola, not Lucky Charms.


ICU

The series repackages recorded crises and dramas into four one-hour episodes, compressing daily life and death into a glossy, strangely unreal product.


EastEnders

For the conflicted soap fan longing for a simulacrum of realism, EastEnders is an addictive slice of heaven.


The Anna Nicole Show

The Anna Nicole Show asks us to laugh at, not with, its pitiable subject.
