December 14th, 2009
We’re spending a lot of time celebrating Rolling Stone’s Number One album of the 2000s — Radiohead’s Kid A — this month.

December 14th, 2009
Chris Brown’s Graffiti is projected to land at Number Three on the Billboard Top 200 this week with sales of 95,000-110,000 albums, per Billboard. But the 20-year-old R&B singer’s last album, Exclusive, moved 294,000 copies its debut week in 2007, and Brown thinks he can explain the difference: in a series of angry tweets over the weekend, Brown accused stores of “blackballing” him and failing to stock the album in the wake of his guilty ...

December 14th, 2009
When Rob Sheffield caught Echo & the Bunnymen in New York recently, frontman Ian McCulloch in rare form, pausing mid-song to announce, “Quiet down — this is a speech. If I play my cards right it might be a soliloquy. Can anyone spell soliloquy?” McCulloch didn’t challenge anyone to a spelling contest when he stopped by the Rolling Stone studios to play not one but three stunning songs for us, including the awe-inspiring “The Killing ...

December 14th, 2009

The LP was the Moby Grape frontman’s last (he died in 1999), and Beck first expressed his interest in the record by covering “Halo of Gold” on the tribute comp More Oar. Today, Beck unleashed his cover of “Weighted Down (The Prison Song)” featuring Feist singing lead vocals on a ...
