    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...

    Living Legend - Caetano Veloso tells the tropical truth

    My heart of hearts shouted Pele, Pele -- full of power, with one foot in Africa. How great to be a beautiful people who dance, dance, dance. How great to make music. The power comes from that stone that sings Itapoa; it speaks Tupi, it speaks Yoruba....

    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...

    Soundtrack of Our Lives - Behind the Music (Universal/Republic)

    Vincent Gallo - Recordings of Music for Film (Warp)

    Vincent Gallo once described himself as the kind of guy who'd attend a football game in a visiting uniform and cheer until he got killed. Divisive as a portcullis with the stare of Rasputin, the Buffalo-bred director/actor/composer has certainly garn...

    Beings There - Supreme Beings of Leisure: an empire in recline
