American Idiot was a rarity of the 21st century: a bona fide four-quadrant hit, earning critical and commercial respect, roping in new fans young and old alike. It was so big it turned Green Day into something it had never been before -- respected, serious rockers, something they were never considered during their first flight of success with Dookie. Back then, they were clearly (and proudly) slacker rebels with a natural gift for a pop hook, but American Idiot was a big album with big ideas, a political rock opera in an era devoid of both protest rock and wild ambition, so its success was a surprise. It also ratcheted up high expectations for its successor, and Green Day consciously plays toward those expectations on 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, another political rock opera that isn't an explicit sequel but could easily be mistaken for one, especially as its narrative follows a young couple through the wilderness of modern urban America. Heady stuff, but like the best rock operas, the concept doesn't get in the way of the music, which is a bit of an accomplishment because 21st Century Breakdown leaves behind the punchy '60s Who fascination for Queen and '70s Who, giving this more than its share of pomp and circumstance. Then again, puffed-up protest is kind of the point of 21st Century Breakdown: it's meant to be taken seriously, so it's not entirely surprising that Green Day fall into many of the same pompous tarpits as their heroes, ratcheting up the stately pianos, vocal harmonies, repeated musical motifs, doubled and tripled guitars, and synthesized effects that substitute for strings, then adding some orchestras for good measure. It would all sound cluttered, even turgid, if it weren't for Green Day's unerring knack for writing muscular pop and natural inclination to run clean and lean, letting only one song run over five minutes and never letting the arrangements overshadow the song. Although Green Day's other natural gift, that for impish irreverent humor, is missed -- they left it all behind on their 2008 garage rock side project Foxboro Hot Tubs -- the band manages to have 21st Century Breakdown work on a grand scale without losing either their punk or pop roots, which makes the album not only a sequel to American Idiot, but its equal. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide « less… more »

With their third album Clarity being one of the most overlooked masterpieces of 1999, Static Prevails is Jimmy Eat World paying their dues in 1996. It could be the slight over-production (a curse that has always haunted the band), being on a major label for the first time, or them trying to get a feel for pulling fancy studio tricks (i.e., numerous backing vocals, cellos, and Moog additions). Maybe it's all three, but what Static Prevails essentially lacks is the songwriting maturity that Jimmy Eat World could have perfected; but it's almost as if the studio heads at Capitol wouldn't let them so that there would be more room for radio-friendly pop songs. In the end, nobody won. However, tracks such as "Anderson Mesa," "Call It in the Air," and "Seventeen" don't cross that line of boring alternative rock but remain in that aggressive pop status. Nothing close to classic, but definitely a sign of better things to come. ~ Mike DaRonco, All Music Guide « less… more »

The second release by the Tempe, AZ, quartet Jimmy Eat World is a five-song, self-titled EP issued through the small independent label Fueled by Raman. A pair of songs from the EP later appeared on their 1999 studio release for Capitol, Clarity, while three of the tracks appear here exclusively. The band -- Jim Adkins (guitar/vocals), Rick Burch (bass), Zach Lind (drums), and Tom Linton (guitar/vocals) -- has often been classified as emocore, often compared to Seattle's Sunny Day Real Estate. And with the melancholic tunefulness that permeates the EP, it is a fair assessment. The somewhat upbeat opener, "Lucky Denver Mint," combines a drum loop with live drums, while "For Me This Is Heaven," "Your New Aesthetic (Demo)," and the epic six-minute closer, "Roller Queen," are more reflective of the overcast sounds Jimmy Eat World are known primarily for. This self-titled EP will serve as much-welcomed new material for starved fans of Jimmy Eat World. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide « less… more »

In keeping with Metallica's other well-crafted DVDs, their cheekily-named concert film Cunning Stunts features a raw, 24-song set from the band and extra features like multiple camera angles, a photo gallery, weblinks, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and a documentary. This 1997 performance includes "Creeping Death," "One," "Enter Sandman," "Master of Puppets," "King Nothing," and "Sad but True" among its highlights, and the extensive features and crisp video and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound reaffirm that Metallica offer their fans some of the best concert DVDs currently made. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide

This is definitely one of my favorites. And it has a story to go with it. :) When I was fifteen, me and my very best friend, a guy I had met in high school, Jesse, went to the local movie theater. We had no idea what was playing we just wanted to see something. One of the theater screens is located outside the theater down the alley right next to it. We snuck into this theater since it was the easiest to access, lol. And this movie was playing! We looked around in the light of the movie screen and saw only a very few people sitting, watching the movie. And they were all Old. Like over sixty old. We just kinda laughed it off, took a few seats in the back and Tried to watch the movie. Key word, Tried. Once Jesse saw the theme of the movie......old world, turn of the century, guys wearing what looked like tights to him, he wasn't havin' it, lol. He sat back there mocking everyone in the movie, because of their British accents and proper grammar. lol. Kids. Anyway, an old man sitting in front of us turned and started yelling at ......well, us even thought I wasn't saying anything, lol. He really wasn't very nice, lol, and we ended up running out of the movie theater laughing at him. Haha, no harm intended, just fun and games. lol. So yeah, I saw it on tv one night, remembered our little escapade and decided to turn it on. And I actually loved the movie, lol. Two sisters trying to find their match. While being infatuated, loved, victimized, and led astray. The story of my life. Hell, the story of any woman's life. Beautiful settings, beautiful script, and a beautiful story. One htat personally has me hooked on Jane Austen.

It's creepy. It's a goody basket for the stalkers I don't- but one day might- have. I don't like it. (Unless, of course, I'm socially stalking someone else with the very same cyber tools. ha.) But then I watch the same technology give my children something I never had growing up- a vivid, fascinating and educational resource that lets them travel the world in which they live from my home computer. Not depicted "as it might be" but "as it IS." Google Earth (once dubbed Google Dirt) has unveiled their newest incarnation and it comes complete with a feature called Google Ocean that blows me away. After having successfully mapped most of the planet's "dirt" features, their team was challenged to take on the 2/3 of the world that is covered by water. So they teamed with over 100 of the world's top scientific and marine-oriented organizations (even surf clubs) to do just that. The result? Jaw-dropping. Absolutely jaw-dropping. It was unveiled today. Go see it. Also check out the link I've added for the Google LatLong site to find out about more new features....
