ARCHIVE REVIEWS FOR JANUARY THROUGH JUNE 2000

Indies step up to the plate, with solid entries from Jake (NYC) and Sauce (San Pedro, CA). Aimee Mann delivers a winner with the soundtrack to "Magnolia," but the Steely Dan reunion project is nothing special.

Also look for funnyman Carlos Mencia and country songbird Shelby Lynne, who takes a page from "Dusty in Memphis" . . .
