— Welcome back, Miranda Lambert, a beloved Jukebox scion but always the beneficiary of excellent criticism. This is no less true today. These are some of the best blurbs you’ll read this summer.
— I’ve cooled on Anwandter’s ballad. His album is terrific thanks to the fast ones.
— After several weeks of living with it, I’m sure that Blank Face LP is Schoolboy Q’s best album, with the exception of sops like the Miguel track and this sop to the marketplace.
— Against Me!, another beloved Jukebox act, was just OK this time out.
