Wilco, 'Cruel Country': Album Review

It was only a matter of time before Wilco got back to where they started. They never really left the Americana roots blend of their earliest records behind; they merely shaped them into new but vaguely familiar forms over the past two decades. From at least 2001's masterpiece, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, forward – and, really, it can be traced back to 1999's Summerteeth, if not before – the Jeff Tweedy-led band has made […]

Rolling Stones, 'Live at the El Mocambo': Album Review

Back in 1977, between the ill-fated Black and Blue and the career-rejuvenating Some Girls, the Rolling Stones managed to keep secret, for a little while anyway, their intentions to play a pair of intimate shows at Toronto's famous El Mocambo club.

Ann Wilson, 'Fierce Bliss': Album Review

Ann Wilson has never cared to play by other people's rules. The Heart singer has weathered all sorts of showbiz sleaze over the past half-century, swatting away sexist fans and industry veterans at the onset of her career, making "Faustian bargains" to cement a meteoric mid-'80s comeback and helping younger bands navigate the pitfalls of fame at the dawn of the grunge revolution. Wilson has triumphed over decades of adversity and emerged stronger, wiser and […]

Rush, 'Moving Pictures' (40th Anniversary Edition)': Album Review

For rabid prog-rock fans, no archival oddity is worth leaving in the dust. The bad news: Rush have always been a tidy bunch, never accumulating much of a scrap pile.“There’s nothing there. There’s nothing left," Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone in 2021, confirming the trio's lack of leftovers. "There might be half-finished demos somewhere where we got halfway through and went, ‘Oh, this song sucks.’ And it never got made.”It's an admirable philosophy: If Rush have recorded […]
