Sample List The Following is a Segment
Facing the Critics
A Paste Magazine critic reads his review aloud to the artist concerned, and then discusses the album, film or book in light of the review.
Ears We Trust A musician, producer or film maker talks about his favorite recent musical discoveries, and offers a listen
Review Haiku Reviews can be dull But poetry is genius Thus, Review Haiku
Dischord Two critics offer two very different reviews for the same album
Kid Music that Doesn’t Suck Artists or Writers with Children offer their picks for music that is both kidfriendly and palatable for adult ears
Ear of the Beholder Much like Ears We Trust, but as a “Man on the Street” approach, where a reporter asks those in public what they have playing on their ipods.
Something Old, Something New Paste offers up suggestions of older music for fans of a new album or artist; then offers suggestions for new music/ artists based for fans of a classic album or established artist.
Ex: For fans of Elton John (classic): Dr. Dog, the new Ben Folds Album; For fans of Wild Sweet Orange (new): Copeland, Counting Crows, Coldplay
