Sade: Soldier of Love

We heard the eponymous first single off of Sade's new album (due out February 9), Soldier of Love, ($10) and were hooked. Chill, yet intense, it mixes signature R&B beats with electric guitar, military drummers, and sleek, sleek harmonies: the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing... [More]

Magneto Siempre

Maybe you remember these guys. Maybe you don't. But if you've been thinking that NOTHING could turn "Sugar, Sugar" into a song that you'd actually want to listen to for longer than fifteen seconds, you're wrong. It's actually a lot better when sung (mostly) in... [More]

The Flaming Lips' Embryonic

*Sigh*... Embryonic ($10), the newest venture into psychedelic soundscapes by The Flaming Lips, has been deemed genius by die-hard Lips fans, and a let down by others at the wayside. This effort verges on being lost in over-production, compressed values, and Wayne's usually charming voice... [More]
