  • Walking With A Panther

    Walking With A Panther | ALBUM REVIEW

    Aesthetically speaking, L.L. Cool J probably couldn't have picked a worse time to release Walking With a Panther, his long-awaited third album. In 1987, the rapper's brash Bigger and Deffer set new standards for rap music. Before...

  • Yo Frankie!

    Yo Frankie! | ALBUM REVIEW

    Although Dion Dimucci has spent the last decade making slick born-again Christian albums, you wouldn't know it from the first track on Yo Frankie, his long overdue shot at a secular pop comeback. Eager to reclaim his...

  • Irish Heartbeat

    Irish Heartbeat | ALBUM REVIEW

    It would be hard to imagine a more natural merger of pop and folk than this collaboration between Van Morrison and Ireland's preeminent oldwave traditional band, the Chieftains. Yet even those expectations don't prepare one for the...

  • I'm Your Man

    I'm Your Man | ALBUM REVIEW

    As second comings go, there probably isn't a less likely one than that of the Canadian poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen. Though his kind of confessional romantic despair would appear to be hopelessly passé in the Eighties,...

  • Canciones De Mi Padre

    Canciones De Mi Padre | ALBUM REVIEW

    Depending on how seriously one takes Linda Ronstadt these days, Canciones de Mi Padre ("Songs of My Father") is either a deeply felt homage to her family's Mexican heritage or the party-gag album of the year. For...

  • Strangeways, Here We Come

    Strangeways, Here We Come | ALBUM REVIEW

  • In the Dark

    In the Dark | ALBUM REVIEW

    "Touch of Grey," the song of rejuvenation and reconciliation that opens In the Dark, is a fairly obvious state-of-the-Dead message, from its bright melody to its "I will get by/I will survive" chorus. But another one of...

  • Ballot Result

    Ballot Result | ALBUM REVIEW

    In a better world, neither of these albums would exist. D. Boon, the hulking frontman and guitarist of the Minutemen, would not have died in a van accident three days before Christmas 1985, and the trio's surviving...
