John Cale & Lou ReedSongs For Drella (Sire) :: Everything they’ve done separately, no matter how good, is mere artifice compared to this sincere, monumental work of art. When’s the last time you listened to it?


The Sharp EaseGoing Modern (olFactory) :: Meanwhile, if Cale and Lene Lovich had sired quadruplet daughters 25 years ago, those four femmes would’ve grown up to record this smart ’n’ sassy pop album.


Tara AngellDown And Out: The Come Down EP (Rykodisc) :: Hide the razorblades because if ever a record lived up to its title, it’s this one. This dour dish makes Marianne Faithfull sound like Toni Basil cranked to the gills on a helium speedball.


Josh RouseNashville (Rykodisc) :: Maybe the Ryman Auditorium isn’t ready for a guy who sings lyrics like: “Later on, after the show, we can go to your room, I can try on your clothes.”


Johnny Cash – “A Boy Named Sue” (Columbia) :: Then again, maybe it is.


SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The DevlinsWaves (Nettwerk) :: Having survived the trauma of Chas being killed by Harry Flowers, the two remaining brothers buck up and record this fine album. I like that, turn it up.


Be seeing you!
