Elton John, ‘Home Again’ – Song Review

The familiar-sounding piano that opens 'Home Again,' Elton John's first new solo music since 2006's 'The Captain & the Kid' album, instantly recalls the singer's hit material from the '70s, when he was the biggest pop star on the planet. But it's warmer and more worn-in. It's Elton John, all right. But it's Elton John 40 years later, returning to a comfort zone with history behind him.

Primal Scream (Feat. Robert Plant), ‘Elimination Blues’ – Song Review

It's not quite accurate to say Primal Scream use Robert Plant for backing vocals on 'Elimination Blues.' The Led Zeppelin lead singer is more of an instrument, used to sweeten an experimental blues song. It's a bold move to ignore the temptation to put Plant in a starring role.

Black Sabbath, ’13′ – Album Review

Here's the rundown on '13,' Ozzy Osbourne's first full-length album with Black Sabbath in 35 years: It's not embarrassing in the least. In fact, it's pretty darn good and at times it's great.

The Rolling Stones Rock Chicago

Chicago has held a special pull for the Rolling Stones from before the group even existed. Mick Jagger was famously carrying albums from Chicago-based Chess Records when he ran into his childhood pal Keith Richards at the Dartford railway station in 1960. It began a partnership that, 53 years later, brought them back to the city on May 31, the second night of a

Paul McCartney & Wings, ‘Wings Over America’ – Album Review

Back in 1976, when Paul McCartney & Wings’ live album ‘Wings Over America’ was released, the band was coming off a string of four No. 1 records. The triple-album set, culled from various concerts the group performed on their 1976 U.S. tour in support of ‘Wings at the Speed of Sound,’ soon became their fifth straight No. 1. (The last three-record LP to reach the top spot was by one of McCartney’s old bandmates: George Harrison’s ‘All Things Must Pass.’)

Deep Purple, ‘NOW What?!’ – Album Review

Classic rock stalwarts Deep Purple released their new album, titled 'NOW What?!,' last Tuesday (April 30). By the standards which we might reasonably expect to measure new work from an older band, it's very good -- or at least, the parts of it that are any good are very good.

Rod Stewart, ‘Time’ – Album Review

Since 2002, Rod Stewart has released eight albums. Each and every one of them includes songs that were written before ‘Maggie May’ hit No. 1 in 1971. A lot of them, in fact, were written before the 68-year-old rock legend learned to walk. Five ‘Great American Songbook’ albums, a rock oldies collection, an R&B oldies collection and a Christmas album – that’s pretty much how Stewart has spent the past decade.

Fleetwood Mac, ‘Extended Play’ – Album Review

The last time Fleetwood Mac made an album together, they were minus Christine McVie and enough good songs to fill its 75-minute running length. They’re still without McVie on their new four-song EP, but they fixed ‘Say You Will’’s biggest problem by keeping ‘Extended Play’ at an economical 17 minutes. And if it sounds more like a Lindsey Buckingham record than an actual band one at times, at least ‘Extended Play’ is the best thing released under the Fleetwood Mac moniker since 1987’s ‘Tango in the Night.’
