While 2015 saw the return of many legends, there is still a lot of great music out from younger bands (and legends in the making). And much like a horror fan benefits from branching out to other genres from time to time, I tackled a few albums that are on the lighter side!

Monster Magnet “Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux)”
No spring chicks themselves, Monster Magnet has been rocking hard since 1989. Tapping into psychedelia with their space rock ways, and Dave Wyndorf’s knack for off the wall lyrics, Mm haven’t changed a thing with this effort. Having said that though, it isn’t a bad thing.

It's Not So Bad is a new feature on HitFix where a brave, stupid writer defends an unpopular pop culture subject. Every Madonna fan -- or every Madonna fan worth knowing -- has a bone or two to pick with the woman herself, and that's the way it should be. One of Madonna's primary functions as a pop culture phenomenon is agitator, and I was sufficiently agitated with her Britney lip-lock (because Britney is no Madonna heir, as we've now long understood), her "Hard Candy" album (because Timbaland and Justin Timberlake were her most uninspired choices as collaborators), and the leaden self-seriousness of her Mdna tour (because leaden self-seriousness is not very danceable).
