25 Up: Punk's Silver Jubilee: "Good Clean Fun": Mike Thorne Looks Back on Punk

'I find it very disappointing that punk in the 21st century has turned into a style and something to be worn like a jacket, rather than something which has a specific attitude to it.'

Lupine Howl: The Carnivorous Lunar Activities of Lupine Howl

In a sense, Lupine Howl are in something of a no-win situation since they have the albatross of Spiritualized around their necks.

Guided By Voices: Isolation Drills

Although the band's 12th studio album continues in the more polished vein of Do the Collapse, its surface is nicely tarnished and scuffed so its indie-rock roots are always audible.

Leonard Cohen: Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979

In the absence of any new material, Field Commander Cohen is a welcome reminder not only of Leonard Cohen's genius as a songwriter but also of his abilities in concert.

There's something wonderfully cinematic about Scavengers. It conjures up images of a heavily smoky, barely lit bar in the lost reaches of some Southwestern desert.

Neil Young, Friends & Relatives: Road Rock Volume 1

You have to ask yourself if the world really needs another live Neil Young release at this point. It might be redundant, and it might smack somewhat of contractual obligations, but Road Rock Vol. 1 will of course please completists.
