    The Best Christmas Album of 2008 is... Metal?

    Perhaps Willie Nelson said it best: "This looks like a December day." Or Merle Haggard: "If we make it through December..." The icy wind whips through the trees, retail checkout lines resemble a stock pit on one of those massive Wall Street sell-off ...

    Heroes Hip Hip Hurray: Was Tina Turner Right?

    Tonight: Wilderness at the Mink

    Anyone who thought Wilderness fell into a slump with Vessel States, the year-after follow-up to 2005's arresting self-titled debut, will be glad to hear that the cryptic Baltimore band has altered its approach somewhat on the new (k)no(w)here. Born a...

    A SugarHill Supergroup of Sorts

    An Hour in Sunny 99.1's Holiday Hell

    Most people I know hate Sunny 99.1, but not me. And I should really hate it. Any radio station supported by the American Dental Association has to suck. But every time I listen to it, I either hear something so corny and half-baked that I can't turn ...
