Picks and Pans Review: Recent Raves
Nas, Hip Hop Is Dead If Hip Hop Is Dead, as Nas proclaims on his new CD, then the rapper certainly does his best to resurrect the genre's golden age. On the will.i.am-produced title track, he rocks it like vintage Run-DMC.
George Jones and Merle Haggard, Kickin' Out the Footlights ... Again You'd be hard-pressed to find a better country album than this, with two still-vigorous old warriors singing each other's songs, both separately and together.
Clipse, Hell Hath No Fury Clipse's long-overdue second disc was well worth the wait: With def rhymes and dope beats courtesy of the Neptunes, this brotherly duo eclipses anything the competition can offer.
The Departed Soundtrack The killer soundtrack to the hit gangster movie leans on stuff by classic-rock heavies like the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys and Pink Floyd.
