Album review: Nine Inch Nails get back to where they once belonged
When Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails returned from four years in mothballs with the 2013 album “Hesitation Marks,” it seemed like the perfect moment for the Roger Waters of the ’90s to let fly with a concentrated dose of his fangs-bared, pummeling industrial rock. Instead,...

2016: The past year in albums
Here we are, staring 2017 in the face, another year about to fade into memory. The popular stance is that 2016 was a nearly unendurable march of death and destruction, and, while there’s plenty of evidence to support that take, one bright side to it all would be that at least we...

Review: Hark! The herald Rose Ensemble sings!

Album review: Holiday album showcases Lea’s musicianship
When Gaelynn Lea looks back at her 2016, it may just be that she’s the only one in the world who thinks, “Hmm, now that was a pretty good year.” While 2016 for most was a nonstop horror show of death, destruction and political upheaval, Lea at least got to see her music career...

Comedy review: 2016 Rubber Chicken Holiday Show thin on big ‘yolks’
To paraphrase the age-old theatrical adage, “Tragedy is easy . . . Comedy is hard.” The cast of Rubber Chicken Theater’s (RCT) ninth anniversary holiday comedy revue, titled “The Cursed Nobel, or, I Saw Dylan Dissing Santa Claus,” works harder for chuckles this time around,...

Album Review: Weathered vibe runs through new Stones album
The Rolling Stones claim they made their new blues album in three days — which is remarkable since it sounds like they couldn’t have spent more than two. Easily their rawest recording in decades, “Blue & Lonesome” finds the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers happily reconnecting...

Album Review: Reissues make case for The Move being an unsung great
It’s not an easy task sometimes to scare up local releases to review for this here column. As vibrant as the region’s original-music scene is, there are times when the stream of albums runs a bit dry — after all, 52 records a year is a tall order for a few reasonably sized towns...

Theater review: ‘Joseph’ delivers promised bold new vision

REVIEW: Despite the snow, Arrowhead Chorale celebrates autumn
Red and yellow leaves, chilly but gentle winds and a shimmering harvest moon would be the perfect conditions for a choral performance celebrating the autumn season in Minnesota. Not six inches of snow, freezing temperatures and icy sidewalks. Mother Nature may not have cooperated...
