Album review: Various artists, Red Hot + Fela (Knitting Factory)

Purists will object to the very idea of covering the late Fela Kuti’s songs, but the originals can outstay their welcome.

Album review: Robin Thicke, Blurred Lines (Polydor/Interscope)

It's amazing what one hit can do for an act's profile: Robin Thicke had laboured long and hard with little recognition outside the core US R&B audience until the single “Blurred Lines”, its loping groove irresistibly peppered with cowbell, wrought its magic on a global scale.
