With a driving bassline, tambourines, and a surging, one-chord wonder riff that bear a more-than-passing resemblance to Iggy Pop's classic "Lust for Life," Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" is one of the most immediate -- if not creative -- singles to come out of the garage rock revival of the early 2000s. Jet only steal from the best, but they do add something of their own identity along the way. Singer Cameron Muncey's shredded, nasal voice recalls countless rock singers (including his contemporary Jack White), but his delivery and the song's flirtatious subject matter do help separate the song somewhat from its looming influences. "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" is utterly simple, confident, and brimming over with energy; on the quieter sections of its verses, you can hear the band's amps buzz, ready for the next onslaught. Unlike some of the relatively more forward-thinking garage rock revivalists, who try to bring something a little arty or different to the sonic touchstones of the '60s and '70s, Jet distill the best feel-good moments of that era into one almost frighteningly catchy single. Aside from the band's own youthful energy, the most modern thing about the song might be the girl herself: with her "big black boots/long brown hair/she's so sweet with her/get back stare," she is presented as more than a little tough, and more than enough of a match for the singer. Whether "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" is creatively bankrupt, or just an extreme example of how all music is influenced by what came before it, is up for debate (and may even depend on your mood). Either way, the song is impossible to ignore. © Heather Phares /TiVo

Forever: An Anthology is a good but flawed double-disc overview of Judy Collins' long, prolific, and productive career at Elektra/Asylum Records. Over the course of 35 tracks, nearly all of Collins' best-known songs are showcased ("Someday Soon," "Who Knows Where the Time Goes," "Send in the Clowns," "Both Sides Now," "Hard Lovin' Loser," "Amazing Grace"). Scattered throughout the collection are four new songs -- including, inexplicably, a re-recorded version of "Chelsea Morning" -- that may not live up to the quality of her classic songs, but still are quite strong. It might have been more appealing if the songs were sequenced in chronological order, and if "Chelsea Morning" were present in its original version, but Forever: An Anthology remains an ideal compilation for the serious Collins fan. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
