It was kind of a big deal with The Beatles finally made their way onto the ever-growing digital music behemoth that is iTunes, but we find this news just as, um, satisfying. Starting this week, 27 Stones records will be finding their way onto the audiophile music service, HDTracks.com. The tracks have been pulled from remasters that were originally created for and released on SACD in the early 2000s.

The latest reissues in King Crimson’s 40th Anniversary Series capture the band at difficult junctures in Phase 1 of its quixotic history.

Call me naive, but I think album titles should mean something. When the Black Eyed Peas unleashed their poptastic The E.N.D.

So I've been basking in the sounds of Cake's new chart-topping album Showroom of Compassion (Upbeat Records; cakemusic.com), and have to say that I'm really loving it.
Oh good. That would be horrible if it was a nightmare for you. [chuckles]

And it's a great album to listen to on vinyl. The bass lines on "Got to Move" and "What's Now Is Now" have real impact.

Black Sabbath, the dark lords of melody . . . revealed!
