Now that Boris Yeltsin is dead, does it matter that someone still loves him? The answer, at least if it's dependent on Missouri's Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, is no. While the band pulled off a passable, if fun, debut in 2005/2006 with Broom, the follow-up, Pershing, is a boring, careless record that tries too hard to be witty and hooky, resulting in something that resembles the indie-hipster version of the nameless college-guy jam band. Broom, of course, was not a perfect album, but songs like "Pangea" and "I Am Warm & Powerful" showed off a group with a talent for songs that managed to border between silly and utterly serious and somehow work. Such, unfortunately, is not the case with the follow-up. The lyrics are trite and uninteresting -- "Yeah, you're right but you'll be dead right/Yeah, you look alright, but you're dead, right?" from "Dead Right" is really not as clever as they think it is, nor is rhyming "oceanographer" with "court stenographer," "news photographer," and "map cartographer" ("Oceanographer"), the latter of which actually is rather redundant -- and while the melodies can occasionally be catchy ("Think I Wanna Die," "Glue Girls"), they're hard to remember once the song ends, neither unique nor fun enough to make much of a dent; "You Could Write a Book" even borders on the trenches of yacht rock. It's too bad, because Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin seemed to have the potential to be a fun, smart indie pop band. But if Pershing is showing the way of the future, they can consider themselves even less relevant in the contemporary landscape than their namesake.

The 1000 Faces of Bowie

David Bowie, star and genius, never stopped reinventing himself throughout his fascinating, shape-shifting musical career. A unique case in the history of rock.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.
