Our March Playlist - Check Out The Best Songs Off The Best Albums This Month

March 31st, 2014 7:00pm EDT
Beck - Morning Phase
March was a rich month for music releases. After listening and reviewing multiple albums, it is always fun to pick out one big time standout. Sometimes it is a difficult choice, while other times it’s the only choice (particularly on a sub-par album). After looking back through my late-February and March reviews, I’ve compiled a playlist of one favorite from each album.

“Morning”

Beck

The Best & Worst Reese Witherspoon Films

November 21st, 2008 10:09am EST
Reese Witherspoon
Even Oscar winning actresses like Reese Witherspoon have made a few films that aren't worth seeing. Reese is adorable, bubbly and likeable as an actress and as a person. She's probably best known for her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde because no one could have played that part better than she did. However, there were a few stale moments in her career where her movies failed to leave a mark in Hollywood.

THE WORST

Just Like Heaven- This 2005 film co-starring Mark Ruffalo was so far fetched it was even hard to believe as a movie. Reese played a doctor who went into a coma afte...

"Cohen, who was born in Montreal in 1934, was 33 years old when Songs of Leonard Cohen came out, old enough to embrace the creative momentum of the '60s counterculture without falling prey to its more naïve aspects. He had also been a published poet for more than ten years, and a novelist as well." - from the new liner notes written by Anthony DeCurtis

Like the ancient scriptures themselves, whose parables and lessons have always inspired the poetry and songwriting of 72-year old Leonard Cohen, the verses and cadences of his first trilogy of Columbia albums recorded between 1967 and ...

January 30th, 2006 9:25am EST
Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon claims singing in new movie 'Walk The Line' was more terrifying than childbirth. The Golden Globe-winning actress said she didn't realise director James Mangold expected her to stretch her pipes for her role as June Carter Cash in the critically acclaimed Johnny Cash biopic until she'd already signed up.

She told Arts and Books Review magazine: "I just assumed we were using their music and then he said, 'Oh no, you're going to be learning to sing.'

"You should've heard me in the beginning - it was really bad. I was like, 'I can't do this.'

That's not my experience," she tells Newsweek in the January 30 issue. (on newsstands Monday, January 23) "You know, I just don't have a need to see the Hollywood version of my father's drug addiction and my parents' breakup."
