  • The Ramones

    The Ramones | LIST ENTRY

    Every rock & roll generation needs reminding of why it picks up a guitar in the first place, and four nonbrothers from the borough of Queens had a concept that was almost too perfect. Their look —...

  • Muscle Of Love

    Muscle Of Love | ALBUM REVIEW

    The Alice Cooper phenomenon, which began with the chart entry of "I'm Eighteen," rose to diabolical heights with Killer and School's Out and extravaganzaed in the show surrounding Billion Dollar Babies, has now cooled itself down with...

  • Moondog Matinee

    Moondog Matinee | ALBUM REVIEW

    Under normal circumstances this would be a fairly disappointing album for the Band, coming as it does on the year-old heels of a live set and a good 30 months since the last appearance of any original...

  • Quadrophenia

    Quadrophenia | ALBUM REVIEW

    Quadrophenia is the Who at their most symmetrical, their most cinematic, ultimately their most maddening. Captained by Pete Townshend, they have put...

  • Red Rose Speedway

    Red Rose Speedway | ALBUM REVIEW

    When Paul McCartney's television special was aired several weeks ago, one of the ostensible aims was to provide a semi-biographical glimpse of the inner man, a kind of "getting to know him" in the words of an...

  • Raw Power

    Raw Power | ALBUM REVIEW

    The Ig. Nobody does it better, nobody does it worse, nobody does it, period. Others tiptoe around the edges, make little running starts and half-hearted passes; but when you're talking about the O mind, the very central...

  • Exile on Main Street

    Exile on Main Street | ALBUM REVIEW

    There are songs that are better, there are songs that are worse, there are songs that'll become your favorites and others you'll probably lift the needle for when their time is due. But in the end, Exile...

  • Led Zeppelin IV

    Led Zeppelin IV | ALBUM REVIEW

    It might seem a bit incongruous to say that Led Zeppelin — a band never particularly known for its tendency to understate matters — has produced an album which is remarkable for its low-keyed and tasteful subtlety,...

  • Grateful Dead

    Grateful Dead | ALBUM REVIEW

    To avoid any possible disappointments for those who once had visions of saving the world through the music on Anthem of the Sun and any number of live performances, it might be nice to think of this...

  • High Time

    High Time | ALBUM REVIEW

    It seems almost too perfectly ironic that now, at a time in their career when most people have written them off as either dead or dying, the MC5 should power back into action with the first record...

  • The Cry Of Love

    The Cry Of Love | ALBUM REVIEW

    Maybe it's just my imagination, but the Jimi Hendrix section of my local record bin seems to have been growing at an astonishing pace lately. In recent weeks, we've been offered a bland semi-jam with Lonnie...

  • Loaded

    Loaded | ALBUM REVIEW

    Lou Reed has always steadfastly maintained that he Velvet Underground were just another Long Island rock 'n' roll band, but in the past, he really couldn't be blamed much if people didn't care to take him seriously....

  • Live/Dead

    Live/Dead | ALBUM REVIEW

    Live Dead explains why the Dead are one of the best performing bands in America, why their music touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists. A list of song titles would mean very little...
