Review - Laser Beam Next Door

Artist: The Silos

Posted on Thu, Aug 30, 2001 at 4:00 AM

While they've been appreciated for their brand of quirky roots rock, their albums have also always featured glossy American garage rock that has often missed the mark. This split has prevented The Silos from ever producing a singularly...

Review - The Invisible Band

Artist: Travis

Last year, Brit-rockers Travis took the (rest of the) world by multiplatinum storm with the sing-songy everyman-ism of their second record, "The Man Who," thanks to its irresistible anthemic pity party, "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" This year, Fran Healy and company return with an even more subversively...

Bands like Twisted Sister really helped MTV in the early years. Everyone remembers the "We're Not Gonna Take It" video; you know, the one with lead singer Dee Snider taking on Tipper Gore and the PMRC on Capitol Hill. The band that bathed itself in rebellion and a lot of...

Well, there's no easy way around this, so it's best to just get it over with quickly: "The Word" by The Word -- John Medeski, The North Mississippi All Stars and Robert Randolph -- is a gospel CD. There, it's been revealed; the Liz Langley-ites have had ample time to...

Movie: Jeepers Creepers

Posted on Thu, Aug 30, 2001 at 4:00 AM

**
Our Rating: 2.00 To experience the utmost in cinematic suspense, one must imagine something more terrifying than the screen can create. Though its creepy, well-filmed first half fuels this psychological process, "Jeepers Creepers" degenerates from a realistic and frightening story into silly supernatural shenanigans. Best known for 1995's only slightly...
