Movie: Final Destination 2

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Our Rating: 0.00 The sequel to 2000's premonition-rich thriller has the best self-contradictory title ever. What comes after "final," anyway?...

The Chau line

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

I'm a lucky guy. What I do for a living doesn't require that I spend long days out in a fishing boat or toiling in the fields. So, unlike the people sushi was originally developed for, I eat it as a luxury. That's right, sushi was the original box lunch,...

Review - Bigger Cages, Longer Chains

Artist: The (International) Noise Conspiracy

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Despite what you read about The Hives, it was the swaggering, politically oriented soul punk of The (International) Noise Conspiracy's A New Morning, Changing Weather that made Swedish garage rock a socially acceptable commodity. Sure, the cute boys in the matching suits got more attention and sold more records, but...

Review - So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness

Artist: Joan of Arc

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness Label: Jade Tree Media: CD Format: Album WorkNameSort: So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness It's confusing as to why this new Joan of Arc release isn't touted under the Owls moniker. Three-fourths of this resurrected JOA lineup is also in Owls, and the instrumentation...

Review - Zos Kia Cultis (Here and Beyond)

Artist: Behemoth

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Polish death-metal trio Behemoth has, over the past decade, become more of a force to contend with. That the Eastern European metal scene isn't met with tremendous attention by American aficionados is surprising if you consider how godless those countries were under communist rule. Nonetheless, it's been an uphill climb...

Sailor's Warning Label: Clairecords Media: CD Format: Album WorkNameSort: Sailor's Warning On its second full-length -- a posthumous release as the band members have parted ways -- Orlando's Con Dolore stripped down its approach to make a more uplifting "pop" record. But the result sounds more like outtakes to its...

Review - DJ-Kicks

Artist: Tiga

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Although electroclash is so yesterday as far as the fashionistas go, the trend-as-genre is still quite capable of providing substantial dancefloor thrillage. Tiga -- he of "Sunglasses at Night" fame -- is/was certainly at the forefront of the movement and fully embraces the retro-futurism/new wave glam of the whole thing....

Review - Dub It to the Top: 1976-1979

Artist: Yabby You

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

The throbbing, nighttime flipside to reggae's sunny tones, dub versions are always thick with a haziness that belies their intrinsic simplicity, particularly when you're speaking of reworkings by King Tubby & Prince Jammy. The 18-track "Dub It to the Top: 1976-1979" CD brings together a complete King Tubby-mixed album of...

Review - Way of the Dead

Artist: Yakuza

Posted on Thu, Jan 30, 2003 at 4:00 AM

In the '80s -- when metal was most commercially and critically acceptable -- the bubbling "underground" was what kept the genre interesting. While major labels were releasing dozens of excellent metal albums every month, the joy of exploring the output of tiny labels always seemed more rewarding, because it was...
