  • Review: Neil Young's 'Roxy: Tonight's the Night Live' Brings Dark LP to Spotlight
    Posted on at

    In a rare 1975 interview, Neil Young spoke at length to Rolling Stone's Cameron Crowe about the headspace informing his Tonight's the Night LP. Feeling guitarist Danny Whitten was too fucked-up to play a session, Young had banished him from the studio.

  • Review: Sting and Shaggy Throw an Eclectic Reggae Party on '44/876'
    Posted on at

    Sting's last album, 57th & 9th, was a surprisingly straight-ahead, rock-oriented affair. Here, he pulls another detour, teaming up with Jamaican reggae-pop growler Shaggy. The sunny, nonchalant results often suggest Roxanne hitting a Sandals resort, trading her red dress for a string bikini and flip-flops. Extending his bona fides, Sting evokes "the ghost of Bob MarleyThis article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: Sting and Shaggy Throw an Eclectic Reggae Party on '44/876' […]

  • Review: Tinashe's 'Joyride' Is the Sound of an Innovator Trying to Fit In
    Posted on at

    For all of Tinashe Kachingwe's club-to-bedroom bangers – and on her sophomore album, Joyride, there are many – the young R&B singer's vocal control comes across in unexpected ways. Take "Salt," a heavy song about being ditched in a hotel lobby that's full of subtle brilliance. Tinashe sings the words "Darling" and "I've been slowly dying" a touch after the beat, dragging her voiceThis article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: Tinashe's 'Joyride' Is the Sound of an Innovator Trying to Fit In […]

  • Review: John Prine Keeps Finding Fresh Revelations on 'Tree of Forgiveness'
    Posted on at

    On his first album, John Prine sang "I am an old woman, named after my mother/My old man is another child that's grown old." The song was "Angel From Montgomery," and he wrote it when he was 22, best he can recall. But he was an old 22: An Army vet lucky enough to be sent to Germany instead of Vietnam, he returned intact to his Chicago homeground and resumed his mailman job while America rodeThis article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: John Prine Keeps Finding Fresh Revelations on 'Tree of Forgiveness' […]

  • Review: Cardi B's Debut, 'Invasion of Privacy,' Is Personal and Undeniable
    Posted on at

    When Cardi B teams up with SZA to announce, "I think us bad bitches is a gift from God," hearing is believing. The Bronx queen's long-awaited debut Invasion of Privacy is even better than everybody was hoping it would be, a whirwind tour of Planet Cardi, a place where female warriors reign supreme, taking occasional breaks to plant a Louboutin heel on a rival's throat. Cardi expands onThis article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: Cardi B's Debut, 'Invasion of Privacy,' Is Personal and Undeniab […]

  • Review: Hinds, Spanish Indie-Rockers, Update Golden-Era Slacker-Rock on 'I Don't Run'
    Posted on at

    America may claim rock & roll, but like most of our greatness, it's an immigrant creation. And non-natives regularly improve it: think Beatles, Stones, Nico and John Cale in the Velvets, Slits, Raincoats, Neu!, Can. Who knows how much Hinds' off-handed magnificence has to do with their roots as Madrileños, and how much is merely the mystic universal science of group chemistry and spirit?This article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: Hinds, Spanish Indie-Rockers, Update Golden-Era Slacker-Rock on 'I Don't Run' […]

  • Review: The Weeknd's 'My Dear Melancholy,' Mixes Deep Gloom and Tough Love
    Posted on at

    As one of pop music's preeminent ministers of brood, Abel Tesfaye can lay claim to exerting a huge influence on the menacing tone that undergirds a large swath of contemporary R&B. And he knows it. With two multiplatinum albums in the bag, the Weeknd has largely conquered a pop landscape he once dismissed as trivial, composing pop records that hide his bleak visions in a danceable,This article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Review: The Weeknd's 'My Dear Melancholy,' Mixes Deep Gloom and Tough Lov […]
