Comeback Kids: The 10 Best Musical Resurrections

By Arye Dworken, Contributor

Remember that band you loved that broke up? Well, next year, they're playing Coachella. We live in an age when band reunions are bordering on passé, which can obscure the fact that a well-executed comeback is often difficult to come by. Take Limp Bizkit. That once incredibly popular band released an album this year that you probably had had no idea existed. Or on a somewhat more credible note, Duran Duran reunited and recruited famed… more »

Active Child Talks Classic Hip-Hop

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

With his strident falsetto and taste for grandiose, imposing production, it is easy to hear the influence of Pat Grossi's training as a choir singer on his debut album, You Are All I See. What might be less obvious is the influence of 1990s hip-hop, a moment Grossi witnessed firsthand as the son of Priority Records' Vice President of Sales. "(My dad) was the one who was somewhat wheeling and dealing the albums out," Grossi… more »

Six Degrees of Illmatic

By Jayson Greene, Senior Editor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Not really a collection of rarities and not really a best-of either, the Wu-Chronicles series is actually more of a grab bag featuring some well-known songs and also some that even the most ardent Wu fanatic probably has never heard. This is what makes this second installment both stunning and frustrating at the same time. The stunning moments come on songs like “Left & Right” and “Rumble” — the former a D’Angelo song featuring Method Man, the latter from U-God’s Golden Arms Redemption — excellent songs that may have been overlooked by fans given the Wu’s prolific output. Other available, yet possibly overlooked, gems included on Wu-Chronicles: Chapter 2 include Gang Starr’s “Above the Clouds,” which features Inspectah Deck over one of DJ Premier’s finest beats; “N.Y.C. Everything,” a simple yet standout moment from RZA’s hit-and-miss Bobby Digital album; “Dangerous Mindz,” a Gravediggaz classic; “Hard to Kill,” a Spice 1 song featuring Method Man; and a few others, like DJ Spooky’s “Catechism,” that are great Wu-featuring songs that were probably missed by fans. So, sure, these songs all merit attention from Wu fanatics since they are undoubtedly great songs. The problem, though, is that most fans have at least a few of these songs in their collection — at least songs like “Hip Hop Fury” and “N.Y.C. Everything” that appear on the Wu solo albums. Fortunately, there are enough seldom-heard songs here, like Shyheim’s “In Trouble,” to offer surprises for everyone — even the most fanatic Wu fans. This is what makes Wu-Chronicles: Chapter 2 worth checking out — nearly everything here is high quality, and those who haven’t heard it will probably want to. Of course, given the myriad Wu albums out there, this is far from essential, but something fanatic fans will surely want in their collection. – Jason Birchmeier
