Gallucci's verdict

Posted By on Fri, Sep 29, 2006 at 4:41 PM

Scene calendar editor Mike Gallucci, more commonly known as the Great Music Critic in the History of the World�, launches his first installment of What I Listened to Last Night, a chance for readers to hear the voice of God -- or perhaps a lesser saint -- on all matters music: Chingy — Hoodstar: With cuts like "Club Getting' Crowded" and "Ass N Da Aurr" filling his third CD, this young rapper pretty much has two things on his mind (and they both involve ballin'). And didn't Master P do a song about "Dem Jeans" a couple years ago? Yawn. Making the mix: "Pullin' Me Back." Gov't Mule — High & Mighty: Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes' other band piles on the Southern boogie for a whopping 70-plus minutes. There's a hefty stomp to the music, but it's a little numbing, especially when Haynes loses himself in "Whipping Post"-style solos. Making the mix: "Mr. High & Mighty." The Pogues: Peace and Love: There's a great EP buried in this flawed 1989 album. Drugs and booze pretty much consumed singer Shane MacGowan — who appears on only half of the tracks — by this time. The remastered reissue adds some leftovers from the era. Making the mix: "White City."
