Paul Young’s Love Songs collection gathers 14 romantic ballads spanning his entire career, including early hits like “Come Back and Stay,” and “Everytime You Go Away” — one of the ’80s most perfect love songs — as well as material from his more straightforwardly soul-based ’90s albums.Read More

Although it’s derived from the same set of early recordings that all “grey market” Bob Marley compilations draw from, this release has legitimacy on its side. The main reason is that it’s on Island, the label that Marley was officially signed to in his later years and the label the Marley estate chose as distributor for its Tuff Gong imprint.Read More

Unusually, for a best-of by a band that started indie and didn’t become stars until hooking up with a major, Black Gold: The Best of Soul Asylum spans their entire pre-2000 career, starting with a 1985 track from their second LP. Naturally, their output on the major label that issued this compilation, Columbia, is emphasized; there are just four songs from the Twin/Tone era, and nothing at all from their 1984 debut, Say What You Will Clarence…Karl Sold the Truck.Read More

In many ways, Alice in Chains was the definitive heavy metal band of the early ’90s. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of post-Van Halen metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak, nihilistic sound that balanced grinding hard rock with subtly textured acoustic numbers. They were hard enough for metal fans, yet their dark subject matter and punky attack placed them among the front ranks of the Seattle-based grunge bands.Read More
