    • The Who
    • Quadrophenia is everything that Tommy wanted to be, a rock opera that told a story, but one where every song could still stand alone. It was also Pete Townshend's farewell tribute to the Mod

    • Pressure Chief, Cake's latest album, didn't immediately grab me. In fact, it took perhaps half a dozen listens before I started truly enjoying it. Any

    • The Redwalls
    • Wow! Perhaps my 5-star rating is simply because the Redwalls are not only new and fresh (none of them older than 22!), or perhaps its because -- despite their ages -- they are able to totally capture

    • 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.

iPhone Top Seller in Japan

Apple's iPhone 3GS is the top selling smartphone in Japan, according to a BCN survey. The combination iPod and smartphone currently holds the top two slots in the country, beating out competitors like the Sharp Aquos Shot SH-061 and Panazonic's 830P.

As of Monday, the 32GB iPhone 3GS held the top selling spot, and the 16GB model was following in second place. The 8GB iPhone 3G, however, was the top ranked phone in BCN's survey leading into the weekend, according to TG Daily, followed by the 16GB iPhone 3G.

In comparison, BCN's survey ranked the popular Blackberry Bold as the sixth most popular seller.

iPhone sales have topped a million in the country since the handheld went on sale about a year ago. The iPhone's features are a big part of consumer interest in the handheld, but Softbank's lower service price plans are playing an important role, too.

The iPhone 3GS was released on June 19 in several countries around the world. Like the iPhone and iPhone 3G launches, customers lined up early for the chance to be among the first to buy the handheld.

But, but I thought all the Apple haters said the iPhone was failing miserably in Japan. Ohnoes!
