  • Jay-Z’s Masterwork: It’s Also Audible!

    July 9, 2013 6:40 PM ET | Yahoo New This Week
     |  Dave DiMartino

    It’s an absolutely fantastic week for those among us who are sociologically minded! And for those of us inclined to note the rich get richer while the poor get poorer! Or to translate in good ol’, plain English: Why is it the week’s most fascinating new releases will either be enormously popular and, perhaps coincidentally horrendous--or sell in the lower double-digits and be remarkably good? Give up? Because to quote my good friend—and indeed I hope yours—Bil...  | More »

  • ‘Voice’ Wild Child Juliet Simms Visits Yahoo!

    Team Cee Lo's Juliet Simms may have memorably belted "It's a Man's, Man's, Man's World" on Season 2 of "The Voice," but it turned out that that song wasn't so prophetic after all. She was the last girl standing that season, and despite placing second (she probably would have won, if the rule changes of the following season — no team quotas, the iTunes bonus — had applied), she is still known as the series' ultimate rock 'n' roll queen. ...  | More »

    Back on "American Idol" Season 8, an intrepid, turquoise-brassiered fan bumrushed Adam Lambert's homecoming performance at Mt. Carmel High School in San Diego. In case those 35 seconds of TV gold aren't still seared into your brain, here's the footage again:  And four years later, that girl is still on a hot streak, so to speak, stripping and stage-rushing for Adam. Such is the loyalty of the Glambert fanbase. Adam was performing at the Del Mar Country Fair in the San ...  | More »

  • The Zombies: Then, Now, and Forever

     |  Dave DiMartino

    Though the term “British Invasion” now seems quaintly historic—it was, after, a musical event that took place on these shores in the early ‘60s—its relevance remains well into the 21st Century. Prime evidence? Most certainly the Zombies, the sophisticated, surprisingly advanced group whose earliest hits—1964’s “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No”—were only the prelude to a glorious career that culminated with 1968&r...  | More »

  • So What’s The Big Deal?

    July 2, 2013 5:50 PM ET | Yahoo New This Week
     |  Dave DiMartino

    I’d like to offer the most cutting-edge and astute music criticism possible here—in fact, I’d always like to do that—but sadly without the appropriate cellphone in my hand, I’m not able to review Jay-Z’s latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Word is the album will be available to Samsung Galaxy owners via an app this coming July 4th, though the rest of us—the ones who don’t own Samsung phones, apparently—will have to wait a few days for t...  | More »
