    The Black Keys rocked The Wiltern in Los Angeles last night, celebrating the release of their new album, Attack & Release, with a couple thousand fans. The Associated Press album review struggles to single out one song to recommend above the rest: "There are so many delightful songs here, it's hard to pick one. Let's go with 'Psychotic Girl,' a song so unlike anything the Keys have done it's startling ... a melange of familiar sounds spun into a new flavor of cotton candy we've never tasted before."

    "There is no question what DVD you should snatch up this week. It's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," writes Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers. "Directed by Tim Burton and starring his muse, Johnny Depp, the film version of Stephen Sondheim's Broadway classic is a bloody wonder, intimate and epic, horrific and heart-rending. Depp received an Oscar nomination as Best Actor and he deserved to win if Daniel Day-Lewis hadn't blown the category away in There Will Be Blood."
