"Dear Mom," a Steely Dan-esque tale of a teenage runaway, proves a highlight, and guest vocalists break the monotony, but a couple of feints toward the riff from "Steppin' Out" serve as a reminder of Jackson's largely abandoned gift for hooks, a gift exercised with frustrating stinginess on this ...

With Schenker, UFO became a seminal rock group that contributed to the transition from hard rock to heavy metal - already on early tracks like "Doctor, Doctor" and "Rock Bottom," from their 1974 release, Phenomenon, they anticipated the melodic speed and ferocity as well as the galloping rhythm s...

But it is not quite as dire as Valentine's Day, a film that is shamelessly promoted during New Year's Eve's end credits, and this underhanded compliment is warranted, in large part, thanks to Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers, whose portrayal of a quick-witted yet slightly awkward husband is unde...
