Product Description & Reviews

This collection of feisty early recordings (the Between the Wars EP and the Brewing Up LP) features England's loudest socialist folkie, usually armed only with an electric guitar and a millennium's worth of outrage, attacking those in power (lazy journalists in "It Says Here," the eternal mining aristocracy in "The World Turned Upside Down") with precision and enough energy to make even the most dogmatic lyrics sound colloquial and persuasive. Bragg is a one-man Clash here, seeking to demolish all he can and then build a better world with his electric guitar and his righteousness as the only tools he'll need. --Jimmy Guterman

No Description AvailableNo Track Information AvailableMedia Type: CDArtist: STONE ROSESTitle: COMPLETE STONE ROSESStreet Release Date: 06/27/1995 The mightiest of late-'80s Manchester ensembles had the world at its feet before entering the long, dark tunnel of litigation. This tidy compilation begins with a few archival indie singles then strides into the glorious but fleeting period that produced gems like ''I Wanna Be Adored,'' ''Waterfall,'' and ''Fools Gold.'' --Jeff Bateman.

Radiohead Photos         More from Radiohead OK Computer The Bends Kid A Pablo Honey Amnesiac The Astoria London Live Filling the gulf between OK Computer's epic progressive rock and Kid A's skittering electronic theatrics, Hail to the Thief borrows equally from each. Its title implies that this will be a collection filled with songs of anger and dissent, but Radiohead no longer howl at the moon like they did on 1995's The Bends. Instead, they use eloquent

Split
By Reprise
ean: 0093624557821,
While many of their contemporaries have branched out in intriguing new directions since their dream-pop debuts, the members of Lush remained committed to a hazy wall of Cocteau Twins guitar, breathy harmonies by Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson, and a fairly straightforward dance beat. The English quartet's third album, Split, isn't an improvement or a departure from Gala (1990) or Spooky (1992). Lush continues exploring pleasant but slight sounds on songs such as ''Hypocrite'' and ''Light from a

Digitally re-mastered and expanded three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition of this 1996 album. Suede recruited 17-year-old guitarist Richard Oakes, following the departure of Bernard Butler. Oakes joined for the Dog Man Star tour, after which the band returned to the studio to record their third album. At this point they also enlisted keyboard player Neil Codling. The resulting album, issued in 1996, entered the album charts at # 1 and spawned five Top Ten singles and is their

Words of Wisdom & Hope
By Alternative Tentacles
ean: 0721616027426,
The line of musicians waiting to work with Jad Fair goes around the block. But you can see the line move; such is the prolific nature of the subdued dude. Words of Wisdom and Hope is, not surprisingly, exactly the sum of its parts. Teenage Fanclub is probably the purest pop act to get involved with Fair, and the result is easily the most straightforward album to have his name on it in some time, possibly ever. Please note, though, that this doesn't mean it's particularly polished. The Glasgow
