    • Punk rock is mostly associated with three chords and a bad attitude, but the Damned were one of the few bands of the era bent on bringing musicianship and a good sense of humor to the scene. And while

    • 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

    • 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

    • 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.

iTunes Music Review - Perverse

  • Perverse

    • Jesus Jones

    • When you think of Jesus Jones, chances are you can't remember them at all, or you vaguely remember "Right Here, Right Now" because it has been used in a laxative commercial, or something of the sort.

      After being decimated by the British press and forgotten quickly by American audiences, any subsequent releases would probably have been supressed, which is what happened with their third release, Perverse. Believe it or not, Perverse is something of an electronic masterpiece overlooked.

      It is the complete opposite of their dancepop hit record Doubt; darker, seriously intense, and massively aggressive, Perverse was way too far ahead of its time for 1993. As a band coming off a small handful of hit singles, the record has none. The opener "Zeroes and Ones" begins with alienatingly shrill computer noise that segues into a set of great songs that are only for the daring.

      The tone of the album is so dark and so personal that, legend has it, drove several fans to violence, one even going so far as to stalk the lead singer. While the album's production does not hold up twelve years later as being cutting edge, this one is classic, even if your friends do laugh at you.
