Out of the Shadows ... Into the Streetlight

Various Artists
Out of the Shadows ... Into the Streetlight
Streetlight Records

Here's a compilation with a twist: every band on this 22-track album boasts at least one member who has worked or does work at one of the four Streetlight Records stores in San Jose, Santa Cruz or San Francisco. Produced by Philip Patrick and mastered by Ten in the Swear Jar's Jamie Stewart, highlights include Ten in the Swear Jar's experimental low-rock "Housequake II," Hayride to Hell's careening rockabilly "Darkside," Quiz Kid's sensitive "Diffusion," Foibles' bizarre "Since Pink Left," Hi Tek Porn's liquid "HTP" and Harbinger's '80s rock-metal "The Rite." With such specific requirements for contributing songs, they can't all be winners. But they're practically giving this disc away, pricing it at $3.98. How can you resist? (Sarah Quelland)


The Family Values Tour 1999

Various Artists
The Family Values Tour 1999
Flawless/Geffen Records

Kicking off with a furious rendition of headliner Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff," this live album pulls together some of the finer moments of last year's Family Values tour. Fred Durst gets multiple tracks on the compilation with Limp Bizkit singles "Break Stuff," "Rearranged" and "Nookie," a cover of Jane's Addiction's "I Would for You," which Durst dedicated to the audience, and a bonus track with Staind's Aaron Lewis titled "Outside." Korn delivers staticky versions of "Falling Away From Me" and "A.D.I.D.A.S./Good God," and Filter slightly tweaked its most popular hit, "Hey Man, Nice Shot." Fairly straightforward, the disc also contains cuts by Staind, Primus, Method Man & Redman and the Crystal Method. (SQ)
