Taylor Swift At Prudential Center, Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | March 29, 2013

Taylor gave her fans a superbly crafted set. A just about perfect two hours of pop rock with a good band and a minimum of acoustic hi-jinx. She treated her young fans with all the love and respect while, impossible to overstate this, streamlining the Speak Now aesthetics to a fine point, a study in simple design well executed and the least indulgent, most creative arena rock show anywhere

Pink At Madison Square Garden, Friday, March 22nd, 2013, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | March 24, 2013

The pop singer with the powerful voice hasn’t changed much in the proceeding years, she has just gotten bigger and better and in one of the remarkable Arena shows you will ever see, she was both a bigger than life cut out character, and a personable, friendly singer, with many hit songs to choose from

Carly Rae Jepsen At Madison Square Garden, Wednesday, November 28th, 2012, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | December 1, 2012

Over and beyond CRJ’s first post THE SONG album the terrible Kiss, not really deserving of too much consideration , she isn’t much of a performer. With a rock backing band, she is is engaging but bland, pretty but vacant. In other words, she is the Phillip Phillips of Canada

Hey Monday Hiatus

By Helen Bach | December 23, 2011

suppose their handful of fans are on their knees crying, but truth be told no one knows who they are so no one knows what they’re missing. Hiatus means broken up by the way.. please give me a list of five band who have gone on hiatus and returned to work

Eric Contractor Going For Baroque

By Iman Lababedi | December 12, 2011

Baroque pop” is an obvious claim, but his own “bel-canto art-rock” is better. How about this: imagine 1980’s band the Associates Billy Mackenzie singing Broadway tunes arranged by Burt Bucharah… ?

By Iman Lababedi | November 28, 2011

The Final Night Of Taylor Swifts' "Speak Now" Tour At Madison Square Garden, Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | November 24, 2011

Lady Gaga’s fans treat her like a very cool maiden Aunt, sticking up for them when their parents just don’t understand. Katy Perry’s fans treat her like a big sister, testing the adult world’s waters for them. Swift is a mix of sister, role model and best friend forever

Taylor Swift On 60 Minutes: Lazy, Sloppy And Already Well Documentated Reporting

By Iman Lababedi | November 22, 2011

A fantasy where her songwriting abilities are under appreciated because her fans are teenage girls. This is complete nonsense. Swift is considered, and rightly, one of the greatest songwriters of her generation. IT’S HER SINGING THAT WAS GETTING DISMISSED

Katy Perry At Madison Square Garden, Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

By Iman Lababedi | November 18, 2011

It wasn’t particularly good music, but it was particularly good entertainment. Much better than Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” tour and the little girls squealed but in some ways more maturely then they did during her dreadful set at Jingle Ball last year

Michael Jackson BioPic in the Works

By Alyson Camus | November 18, 2011

I wonder how many actors they will need to play Jackson, may be Bob-Dylan-I’m-not-There style? If you look at a picture when Jackson was young, and one when he was over 40, it was certainly not the same person and if the same actor is playing him all along, he will need a lot of CGI work.
