Blue Hearts (Merge). Review by Scott Adams.
He’s produced everyone from Herbie Hancock to Soundgarden. Michael Beinhorn tells about the art of music production.
Definitely Not a Redd Kross EP (Chunklet Industries). Review by Laura Pontillo.
Impossible. Review by Joe Frietze.
Once upon a time, long ago, KISS was a rock band. This story recounts how four unlikely guys from New York first came together during the early 1970s and literally changed the face of rock and roll.
When given the chance to see Madonna, on a moment’s notice and four hours away, Jen Cray abandons all responsibilities, hightails it to Miami, and enjoys every sleep-deprived second of the journey!
Bed, Bath & Behind (Sphinxter). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees Red Hot Chili Peppers still deliver, years after they’ve retired the tube socks and put on their pants. Jen Cray was happy to be part of even just a bit of their Orlando performance.
Dot Hacker (EP) (ORG Music). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (American Recordings). Review by Eli Didier.
I and Love and You (Columbia Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Cage the Elephant proves to Jen Cray that while you may try to contain the animal, there’s nothing like a room full of screaming fans to set that beast free!

African Elephants (Fat Wreck Chords). Review by Jen Cray.
With their latest release, Tri-Polar, Sick Puppies’ luck and perseverance begins to pay off with big-league success. Bassist Emma Anzai gives Ink 19 the dish on craigslist, the glamorous rock and roll lifestyle, and why you should never skimp on vitamins.
Real Emotional Trash (Matador). Review by Rose Petralia.
