  • The Long Road

    The Long Road | ALBUM REVIEW

    These Canadian hosers stumbled into 2001's best pop song, the effervescent monster jam "How You Remind Me." This brazenly consistent, if unimaginative, fourth album shows that the hit might not have been a total fluke. See especially...

  • Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell

    Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell | ALBUM REVIEW

    The four originals here — especially the drifting reverie "Sunship Balloons" — almost make this seven-track EP worth owning. But the techno-ish remixes of the title track are tres forgettable.

  • Browne Remembers Zevon

    Browne Remembers Zevon | ARTICLE

    The first time I ever heard a Warren Zevon song, it was sung by Jackson Browne -- in September, 1975, at the Main Point, a small, legendary coffeehouse in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I worked there as...

  • Holy Roller Novocaine

    Holy Roller Novocaine | ALBUM REVIEW

    Four long-haired hotties from Nashville, these three brothers and their cousin play Southern boogie with a garage-rock twist on this debut EP. If the Strokes played Skynyrd songs, it might sound a bit like "Molly's Chambers" or...

  • Matthews, Shakira on the War

    Matthews, Shakira on the War | ARTICLE

    As President Bush leads us toward what seems like an inevitable war with Iraq, many musicians are doing their best to resist. During a recent Pearl Jam show in Australia, Eddie Vedder ad-libbed, "I wish I was president. Keep us...

  • Testify

    Testify | ALBUM REVIEW

    Genesis (and Collins' hair) are long gone, but he has still got that invisible touch. Testify is full of laid-back, better-than-average adult-contempo fare, and the subtle, atmospheric production sure beats the slickness of his Eighties records.

  • Stars & Guitars

    Stars & Guitars | ALBUM REVIEW

    Recorded live in Nashville, this duet album finds the red-haired stranger making nice with artists as far flung as Sheryl Crow, Ryan Adams and Jon Bon Jovi. The one real highlight: Keith Richards' cameo on "Dead Flowers,"...

  • Smash Hits

    Smash Hits | ALBUM REVIEW

    First released in 1969, this remastered hits package features all of the Hendrix songs still played on classic-rock radio stations, and little else. This version restores the original vinyl's track listing, meaning that it lacks the bonus...

  • The Very Best Of Kiss

    The Very Best Of Kiss | ALBUM REVIEW

    Very Best of is a career-spanning single-disc greatest-hits package that covers everything from "Beth" to "Lick It Up." But was it really necessary to delve into Ace Frehley's solo work and those Nineties songs?

  • 20th Century Boy: The Ultimate Collection

    20th Century Boy: The Ultimate Collection | ALBUM REVIEW

    A much-needed career-spanning retrospective of the late metal guru and his influential glam group. Obvious hits such as "Jeepster" and "Bang a Gong" are here, but it's Bolan's singing, songwriting and stinging guitar throughout that prove why...

    Our Critics' Top Albums of 2001 | ARTICLE

    2001 was the oddest of years, one in which music seemed like the least important thing in the world one moment, and the most important the next -- a dichotomy that's reflected in this year's scattered, shattered...
