    U2 - The Best & B-Sides of 1990-2000 (Island)

    The acolyte will deride the obvious misses amid this collection of hits; the casual fan won't even notice, since the casual fan skipped most of the band's '90s output anyway. Still, it's amazing that could fill two discs this go-round, since there we...

    Audioslave - Audioslave (Epic)

    The debut from Audioslave -- the alt-rock supergroup that pairs a Zach de la Rochaless Rage Against the Machine with former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell -- shouldn't have any problem generating the kind of heat the fiery Rage was known for. Onl...

    Tom Petty - The Last DJ (Warner Bros.)

    Father to dozens of car-radio classics, Tom Petty in his later years has sidestepped his sing-along wizardry for a more somber, introspective feel. As if equating maturity with acoustic guitars and whispered vocals, Petty captured a dynamic, autumnal...

    Casualty Ward - Old-school punks the Casualties keep it real, keep it spiky

    This past summer's Warped Tour at Pompano Beach Amphitheatre was an educational opportunity for South Florida's mall-punk horde. On the main stage stood Good Charlotte -- a poppy schmaltz amalgam of wretched MTV punque lite. One hundred yards away on...

    Celtic Frost - Fort Lauderdale's Celt relies on the luck of the Irish

    Mick Meehan pulls a tuft of Bali Swag tobacco from its pouch and effortlessly rolls up a cigarette as he discusses his reasons for coming to America. "I came over here in the early '80s, the same as everyone else," he states in a thick, gravelly bro...

    Don't Fade Away - Thanks to Jaguares, Mexican classic rock will never die

    Don't forget about the band, Alex Lora begs in his squeaky voice, not even if you cut your hair, get a job, wear a three-piece suit, get married, or get liposuction. Don't forget, Mexico, about the band, the first band and for so many years the only ...

    Stroke Me - Welcome to Stroke-a Raton!

    "Boca Raton," Saturday Night Live comedian Jimmy Fallon mused. "What's that mean? 'Rat mouth?' Oh, that's nice." Glancing up at the massive chiffon Styrofoam stucco structure over his head, the Spanish-challenged Fallon (one last time, people: Raton...

    Peter Gabriel - Up (Geffen)

    Ordinarily, albums have choruses, hooks, songs -- hey, maybe even a thematic element or two, if the artist feels particularly ambitious. By contrast, Up (ten years in the making and, Lord, don't it feel like it?) is all about epic psychodramas and op...

    Christina Aguilera - Stripped (RCA)

    Christina Aguilera's problem has always been overcompensation. On her debut, the young waif was so eager to show off her pipes that she mostly sounded horribly overwrought and warbly, like Mariah Carey hopped up on diet pills. On her sultry new secon...

    Dot Allison - We Are Science (Mantra)

    Dot Allison is best-known as the ex-singer of Scottish trio One Dove, which quickly came and went back in 1993. One Dove's detached coolness and dub explorations (courtesy of Primal Scream producer Andrew Weatherall) still generated enough earth tone...

    Nervous in Suburbia - The Ataris' pop-punk won't hurt your mommy

    Ataris guitarist Kris Roe has lived the pop-punk dream. He escaped his shitburg Indiana hometown by passing along a demo to the Vandals' Joe Escalante. Offered a record deal over the phone, Roe informed Escalante that he didn't have a drummer. "No pr...

    Living Legend - Caetano Veloso tells the tropical truth

    Paul Westerberg - Mono and Stereo (Vagrant)

    Like most of Westerberg's post-Replacements work, this pair of discs is most listenable when the artist conveys vulnerability without the sappiness he often mistakes for maturity. The curiously named Stereo, essentially a solo project featuring spars...
