Bruce Springsteen´s Born In The USA


Bruce Springsteen is best known for his most public acts. It's in the concert hall - more than on the stereo or the screen - that he engages his audience as few other performers ever have.

Guns N´Roses Use Your Illusion I and Ii


Use Your Illusion marked the end of rock as mass culture. In this book, Eric Weisbard shows how the album has matured into a work whose baroque excesses now have something to teach us about pop and the platforms it raises and lowers, about a man who suddenly found himself praised to the firmament for every character trait that had hitherto marked him as an irredeemable loser.

Radiohead's Kid A


It was virtually impossible to ignore Radiohead's Kid A when it was released in early October 2000. But the Album was more than just a ten-track collection of songs written by five musicians from Oxfordshire, more than the weird follow-up to the crit ics' fashionable go-to record of choice OK Computer, more than what the Village Voice described as the biggest, warmest recorded go-fuck-yourself in recent memory. Kid A was an event. By pulling Kid A from its canonical status and grounding the album in various contexts, Marvin Lin explains not only why Radiohead suddenly adopted a new songwriting methodology, but also how properties like genre and authenticity distracted us from understanding our reactions to it. From bovine growth hormones and neurological impulses to Dada poetry and bandwidth throttling, the book articulated the politics behind both Radiohead's music and our listening experiences. But in a period of socio-political unrest, is listening to Kid A a waste of time? In and th rough the album, Lin seeks to answer this question by examining what Kid A does to us over time, what Kid A tells us about the future, and whether it's possible (or even desirable) to use Kid A to transcend time altogether.
