Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
A concept album about the Civil War may water the mouth of Ken Burns, but not everyone has directed a ten-hour doc on the subject. Thankfully Titus Andronicus sweetened theirs with a modern twist, where Bruce Springsteen is God, New Jersey is home and anthems fit for arenas are busting out at the seams. Throw in cameos by the Hold Steady's Craig Finn as Walt Whitman and Vivian Girls' Cassie Ramone as Jefferson Davis and it's an epic 65 minutes of scrappy, earnest pop songs that thrash and tear with drunken, riotous abandon.
