 *** (out of four)  At a U of I concert last month, Kid Cudi called his new album "Indicud," ""what my first album should have sounded like. " For me, it's the opposite. While "Indicud" holds me throughout, there are no songs like "T.G.I.F. " from "Man On The Moon: The End of Day" that had me frozen in my tracks, not wanting to miss a single beat. That's not to say Cudi's not still head and shoulders over most acts out there, but I find myself longing for something to really sink my teeth into.

** (out of four) Leading roles don't grow on trees. If they did, Aaron Paul's first big-screen starring performance would inspire someone to chop down that tree, throw it in the ocean and set the ocean on fire. From the little I've seen of “Breaking Bad” - I know, I know - Paul isn't just intense in his Emmy-winning role as Jesse Pinkman. He has an unpredictable edge. In “Need for Speed,” the actor's constipated intensity lives on the surface, charisma-free; it's uncomfortable to watch.

Album review: Kid Cudi, 'Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon' **1/2 (out of 4)   Beyonce, and everyone else, had to know this was coming.   After the runaway success of the R&B icon's "Surprise! Here it is!" release method for her latest album (a stunt previously used to less Earth-shaking effect by Radiohead and more), it was inevitable that other artists would follow suit. Now Kid Cudi has dipped his toes in the spontaneous pond (band name idea alert!

Band Name: K. Flay Sound/sounds like: On her self-titled debut EP, the young MC, born Kristine Flaherty, flashed an elastic flow and a quick wit, rhyming atop beats that rumbled like traffic on crowded city streets and throbbed like packed discos. More recently the rapper, who spins engaging tales about the mundanity of day-to-day life, has gravitated towards airy, electro-spiked beats that leave more room for her dense wordplay. Claim to fame/need to know: The Wilmette-born Flay, who relocated to Brooklyn in August following eight years in San...

**1/2 (out of 4) While Chuck Inglish has gained fame as half of Chicago hip-hop duo The Cool Kids, the Detroit-native rapper (born Evan Ingersoll) hasn't been properly recognized for his ability to create quality tracks. I worry that he may not achieve the rap superstardom he deserves as a beat maker (he's crafted tracks for Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, Mac Miller and more) and will join the list of consistently awesome, under-recognized producers that includes Daz Dillinger (Snoop Dogg, Tupac)

If you have friends who are REALLY into rap on Twitter, you're probably noticing a lot of humbuggery about something called "the Freshman cover" or the "XXL list.

Wednesday's Game 7 against Detroit is the Blackhawks' biggest showdown of the season. Winner moves on, loser starts summer vacation. So you can be sure that prior to puck drop, as fans listen to music blaring throughout the United Center, the Hawks will rev up the locker room with their favorite tunes. Odds are they won't be jamming to the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up," even though Mick Jagger and the boys played the Madhouse on Madison on Tuesday. Considering that they've come back from a 3-1 deficit in the series, however, they might want to include Pearl Jam's "Alive" - aka Patrick Sharp's...

“Project X” puts you right in the center of the action - in this case, what may be the biggest onscreen party of all time. Or to put it another way, says “Project X” co-star Jonathan Daniel Brown, the movie has an “anti-authoritarian” vibe similar to the Occupy movement, “just without the whole reforming government thing. And getting drunk and meeting girls.” The R-rated teen comedy, produced by “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips, stars Thomas Mann as Thomas, whose 17th birthday celebration...
