  • Pretty Hate Machine

    • 8 out of 10
    • Nine Inch Nails
    • For years I wanted to make music that sounded like something between Love and Rockets and Ministry. In 1989, Trent Reznor beat me to it with this genre-defining album, and it smacked me upside the hea
  • Haunted

    • 10 out of 10
    • Poe
    • Dropping like a bomb on some of the blah musical offerings of her contemporaries, Haunted was one of the best albums of 2000, obliterating the competition.

      Ostensibly a tie-in to her brot

  • Supernature

    • 10 out of 10
    • Goldfrapp
    • On their latest CD, Supernature, Goldfrapp has put together a successful mix of 1980-era New Romanticism, German cabaret, and T. Rex glam that leaves you riveted even through the album's lulls. It's a great amalgam that sounds current without sounding at all dated.

  • Another Day on Earth

    • 10 out of 10
    • Brian Eno
    • In his first proper solo release since 1996's relatively cold "The Drop," Brian Eno has constructed a whimsical and ecclectic masterpiece which is arguably one of the year's strongest records thus fa
  • So Jealous

    • 8 out of 10
    • Tegan and Sara
    • So Jealous is the third album from these sisters, and easily the one to single out for an introduction to their music. Some people may not get on board with their vocal styles, which are slightly

MobileMe Email: Down for the Count?

MobileMe, Apple’s replacement for its .Mac service, launched with stability issues, and now some subscribers have been without email for nearly a week thanks to server problems. According to Apple, a MobileMe email server began experiencing "serious issues" on July 18, and as July 24 the company is still trying to resolve the problem.

Apple is claiming the email issue is impacting about one percent of its MobileMe subscribers. Those subscribers aren’t able to send, receive, or view email through the MobileMe Web site or through email applications.

Some subscribers suffering from the inability to access their MobileMe email have found that at least some of their messages are still available. One TMO reader said "Oddly, my Sent Folder on MobileMe only has five emails: one from 2005, one from 2006, two from 2007, and one sent today to test the service. I wonder where the rest went?"

So far, Apple has been characteristically quiet about the problem, but is confirming that there is a problem. Subscribers that check MobileMe’s system status will see a statement from Apple that reads "1% of MobileMe members cannot access MobileMe Mail. Service will be restored ASAP. We apologize for this service interruption and are working hard to resolve the problem."

After nearly a week of downtime, however, it’s unclear just how long it will take for Apple to restore email service to the alleged one percent that have been cut off.
