RuPaul: Champion (Album Review)

For weeks, I'd heard rumblings that RuPaul was preparing the release of a new album called Champion, set for release after the finale of her Logo show, RuPaul's Drag Race. Admittedly, aside from the obvious work ("Supermodel") , I'd never really given the girl much thought--much less did I think…


Utada: This Is The One (Album Review)

It's been a long time coming... Enjoy! ----- In case you weren’t aware, Utada is a single lady again. Yet ever since the dissolution of her marriage with acclaimed Japanese director Kazuaki Kiriya in 2007, the singer has not made even a single peep regarding the fact in any of her recent Japanese…


Kelly Clarkson: All I Ever Wanted (Album Review)

Forgive me: It's taken a while to roll this one out, and for absolutely no particular reason at all (aside from my ambiguous stance on the entire album). Seeing as the release date is in just two days, I took to locking myself in a small room to immerse myself within the sights and sounds of Kelly…


Empire Of The Sun: Walking On A Dream

Durr...Nearly forgot. Just because I wrote it for my final Queerty round, doesn't mean it doesn't exist as a proper review in its own right! ----- Australia is good for only two things: Kangaroos and Dannii Minogue. However, it seems the country can now add another element to the list: Glam-rock…


Lily Allen: It's Not Me, It's You

After nearly four years, Lily Allen has finally begun to make headlines for all the right reasons again. Next week will see the release of the original MySpace Starlet's sophomore attempt, It's Not Me, It's You, featuring the thoughts and fears of a 22-year-old poised at the precipice of adulthood.…


Fever Ray's New Album...

Makes me think: "This is what it must have been like when people heard Björk's Debut for the first time." More on this later. Fever Ray's self-titled album is available now at Amazon, and will be released in physical format on March 18th in Sweden, March 23rd in the rest of the world. DL: Fever…


MuuMuse Most Anticipated: 2009 Edition

Come every January, the promise and excitement of new music releases for the new year lies tantalizingly close upon the horizon. Though dozens of fabulous albums will be released this year, I thought I’d compile a list of some of my most heart-pumping, bar-raising anticipated releases for 2009.…


Say UNKLE.

Almost forgot! Soon after posting about UNKLE's highly anticipated End Titles...Redux, Radio Magnetic has posted an exclusive stream of the entire album in high quality form! The album is absolutely divine, characterized by majestic orchestral highs and grinding, gloomy lows, as the songs flow in…


Britney Spears: Circus (Album Review)

Don’t worry Muusers: I have, in fact, survived the Circus of Britney Spears. Sure, there’s been some scrapes and claw marks along the way. I’ve been manhandled by a duo of evil clowns, nearly fed to the lions and tigers, and somewhere along the way, I distinctly recall being forced to slap a…


Sugababes: Spotlights & Catfights (Review)

Blame it on their infuriating, ever-cycling line-up of fresh faced members, I'll admit that I never cared much for the Sugababes in the past. Granted, I've always listened to the work, but in truth, I've merely been a passing fan. Alas, my feelings have completely changed, thanks to the release of…


Girls Aloud: Out Of Control (Review)

It is Friday, October 31st, approximately five days since the Great Leak of '08. Scouring my "Recently Played" list this afternoon, it has dawned on me (with a great deal of terror and a slight tingle of pride) that I have quite literally only listened to Girls Aloud's Out Of Control for the entire…


Grace Jones: Hurricane (Review)

Grace Jones is ferocious. She is a frightening, feisty glamazon that seems to be ignoring the banality of the process known as aging with her bold, chiseled features and statuesque natural beauty. She is a style icon and a pop culture legend, entirely approachable in person and staggeringly…
