    Planet Earth: The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Greatest Rap Hits

    Released as a tie-in to Public Enemy's deserved 2013 induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the 2013 compilation Planet Earth is a little confusing and for more than one reason. First, it largely chronicles PE from 1990 on, with only Louder Than a Bomb dating from anything earlier than Fear of a Black Planet, and the cuts from that 1990 album and anything released after aren't exactly pristine. Everything here is just slightly off: either the mastering is brickwalled or samples are excised, but if things are re-recorded -- and it often seems like they are -- they're close enough to the originals to fool. Which is frustrating, as there are some songs that are indeed the originals (Public Enemy No. 1) but others just feel not quite right, and the liner notes never bother to explain why things would sound so different here. It's all still pretty good -- the originals are great and PE still retain muscle years later -- but it's hard to endorse an album that seems to purposely skate around its origins, plus, there are many big songs that should've been here (Bring the Noise, Don't Believe the Hype, Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, Night of the Living Baseheads, all selections from It Takes a Nation of Millions, are missing). So, Planet Earth winds up falling short of the celebration it intends to be but there are still enough masterworks to make it a serviceable sampler even if it never transcends that designation.

    Call By Night

    Wymond Miles was raised in the working-class small towns of the American
    West. On Call by Night, the singer's latest widescreen opus, Miles masterfully
    evokes that lost landscape, all while grappling with issues of fatherhood, privacy,
    PTSD, violence, and dissipated romance. The album adds a critical new chapter
    to the Fresh & Onlys guitarist's story as an artist, and reasserts him as a major
    voice in contemporary songwriting.


    Call by Night sees Miles building a noticeably bigger sound than on his previous
    solo records, while simultaneously standing as his most intimate work. It's a
    record explicitly written for the fidelity of the vinyl format, with louder songs
    beginning each album side and quieter songs at the interior. His attention to
    sequencing paid off; the album flows like a piece of classic cinema, and sounds
    like it's splashed across a drive-in screen in 70mm. Recorded using vintage gear
    by Phil Manley (The Fucking Champs, Trans Am) at El Studio in San Francisco
    and Miles' Garden Chamber home studio, the record is a treasure of tube-amp
    warmth, and a landmark in the songwriter's catalog.


    Miles wrote most of Call by Night on piano, and while the wall-of-sound guitar
    and cinematic synth playing that helped define his earlier efforts is still present,
    the beating heart of the songs is left more open thanks to his new method. Where
    previous full-lengths were cloaked in distinct aesthetic choices, this record exists
    outside of any stylistic restraints. "Divided in Two," the lead single, considers
    dignity, class, honor, and father-son relationships through the devastating lens of
    PTSD, all set to a sardonic flag-waving waltz, with martial percussive bomb blasts.
    The title track explores the enduring aesthetic of British psych-folk. Other songs
    dip into the traditions of gospel music, sea shanties, and even big-box power
    ballads, using antique instruments and Miles' unique perspective on the modern
    world to forge a new collection of entries for the American songbook.


    Miles has said the songs on Call by Night mark his "more definitive commitment
    to seek, listen, and give voice to an enduring muse." If that's true, then the muse
    has obviously been singing to him loud and clear.
