American Idol
For those of you who remember my infamous predictions from the Top 13, I beg your forgiveness. For those of you who don't remember or didn't bother reading, let's just move on. On the bright side, at least I had Adam Lambert in the Top 3!

This time around, I'd like to do it differently. Instead of simply picking who I think will finish first, second, and third, I'm going to list five reasons why each of the remaining three contestants can walk away as the next "American Idol." Yeah, that's right, I'm implying that Adam isn't a lock, regardless of whom he faces in the finals.

Bayside To Release Acoustic CD/DVD

January 21st, 2006 7:57pm EST
Bayside
A musician's life is a landscape filled with cheap, flashy distractions – is it possible to suffer through self-examination and benefit? Working within lush sonic landscapes, Bayside makes documenting faithlessness seem like an exercise in beauty, with rich vocals soaring over rock-solid arrangements spiked with truly imaginative guitar solos. While Bayside's Victory Records debut, Sirens and Condolences (click for review), resided in the territory of bleak hopelessness and helpless fury, in their self-titled album released in August of 2005, rays of hope shine through.
