 - Too Much Change (Edit)
50
 Moby's newest single, "Too Much Change," feels like a really promising work in progress. Pared down from the album version's 10-minute runtime down to just over 3 minutes, we're left with a single version that fails to perform as well as the original⁠—despite that version also suffering from the same problem. The intro is pleasant, featuring breathy vocals by Apollo Jane, backed by melancholic piano and light percussion. In this edit, the soft tropical club beats start ... read more
 - McGruff's Smart Kids
NR
 In 1971, United States president Richard Nixon declared a "War on Drugs." The true purpose of this so-called "war," however, had little to do with curbing drug use.

 - The Autumn Effect

 The Autumn Effect is the most well-known album by 10 Years, an alternative band from the United States that made it big for a little while with the song "Wasteland." Remember that song? You probably do if you're a North American my age, since it was played on the radio quite often back in the mid-2000s. Rightfully so, I might add—it's pretty well-written and holds up even now. At least, to me.

 But how does the album hold up? In a way, nearly every song here is a ... read more

 - Die Happy!
80
 Guitar Vader's big first break was when ten of their songs appeared in the Japan-exclusive video game Roommania #203. Their fanbase expanded, and the band capitalized on this with Die Happy!, a compilation of their previously-released material. It was this release that led Hideki Naganuma, a director and producer of music working at SEGA, to discover the band and include two of their songs in the successful Dreamcast game Jet Grind Radio: "Magical Girl" and "Super ... read more
