    Tambersauro: Theories of Delusional Origin

    Tambersauro is one of the most inwardly motivated and intelligent indie-rock bands in Houston, which, considering it's up against the likes of Motion Turns It On, By the End of Tonight and Balaclavas, is really saying something. Theories of Delusion...

    Britney Spears: Circus

    In pop music, audacity pays the bills. Britney Spears knows that much, but her reach is often more awkward than it is effective. Take "If U Seek Amy," the most talked-about three minutes from her new album, Circus. What begins as a rare third-person...

    Common: Universal Mind Control

    Despite his status as a happy, respected old-timer, Common has to rap about something, and his eighth album, Universal Mind Control, is a hodgepodge effort. It contains would-be club bangers full of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo such as the title track (...
