BLINK 182 ENEMA OF STATE On their 1997 release, Dude Ranch, juvenile hardcore-pop band Blink 182 tickled the funny bone with an assortment of dumb sex jokes, off-color artwork, and between-song skits, including one of a dog drinking from a freshly peed in toilet. So, two years down the road, have the band matured at all? One look at the cover of Enema of the State, which features cover art of a tarted-up blonde nurse donning a rubber glove, provides the easy answer. Fortunately, Enema supports the humor with strong musicianship. The songs are more dynamic and multitempoed than those on Dude Ranch, sounding like a cross between the Descendents and Fountains of Wayne. And unlike the glut of alt-rock releases that offer one or two memorable songs, Enema is flush with instantly memorable melodies and ear-pleasing harmonies. Good, dirty fun--no more, no less. --Jon Wiederhorn
The extraordinary voice of 20-year-old Josh Groban is an inspiring force. Not only did it move Grammy-Award winning producer David Foster to bring Josh into the studio to produce his magnificent debut album, it also moved Ally McBeal creator/executive producer David E. Kelley to bring Josh on the show's season finale to perform "You're Still You." After an overwhelming reaction from viewers, Josh was brought back to sing "To Where You Are" on this year's Christmas episode. The day after the show aired, Josh Groban became the number-one selling album at Amazon.com, while his website was flooded with thousands of e-mails and even marriage proposals from adoring fans. All it takes is one listen to fall in love with the voice of Josh Groban. Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (5/02) There are worse things in life than making your acting debut on the much ballyhooed season finale of Ally McBeal, though teen operatic baritone Josh Groban doesn't seem destined to encounter them anytime soon. As the awkward high sc...
