Review - Take Your Shoes Off

Artist: Robert Cray

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

Robert Cray's new album, "Take Your Shoes Off," isn't a flashy affair. While that may be a drawback to folks who want their blues-guitar heroes banging, pulling and squealing their axes into cries of modern, by-the-numbers angst, the rest of us can breathe easy in Cray's relaxed groove. This isn't...

Review - Berio: Sequenzas

Artist: Ensemble InterContemporain

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

They don't call the old masters "old masters" for nothing. But the development of classical music has never stopped, and composer Luciano Berio occupies an important point along that ever-extending line. Listening to his scores can seem difficult to the uninitiated, but "Berio: Sequenzas" is probably as accessible as his...

Review - Beach House on the Moon

Artist: Jimmy Buffet

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

On "Beach House on the Moon," Buffett and the Coral Reefers serve up a colorful batch of new songs along with the requisite margaritas. Buffett's 31st release is a studio effort that is best savored with repeat listens. The disc-opening title track is a breezy tune that sets a tropical...

Review - Guitarded

Artist: Limp

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

Hailing from Oakland, Calif., Limp -- and its second full-length, "Guitarded" -- sounds nothing like the typical stuff coming out of the San Francisco Bay area. These guys vie for your punk dollar with songs that range from everyday pop-punk to aggressive ska-punk (skunk?). And just when you think you've...

Movie: Wild Wild West

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

**1/2
Our Rating: 2.50 The big-screen version of "Wild Wild West," not unlike its '60s television counterpart, thrives on gadgets, gizmos, guns, gung-ho government agents and girls with the gall to get in on the action when necessary. It's a formula that went down fine 30 years ago, when Robert Conrad...

Movie: South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Posted on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 4:00 AM

Our Rating: 0.00 Is the new "South Park" over the top, or just over? Here are four views to feed the cartoon's controvery: You had to be there, by Steve Schneider Tastelessness. Get it? by Liz Langley Bland and bourgeois, by R.A. Bell Sold out? So what? by Richard J....
