Various Artists, "12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief" (Columbia) 1<br />
and a halfstars -- If you want to continue raising money for the worthy cause of East Coast hurricane relief, why would you release a CD of the star-studded concert without the two most interesting moments during said concert? Even if you couldn't see Kanye West in his kilt, his 13-song medley was one of the few moments during the Dec. 12 concert in New York City with a pulse that didn't require monitoring.

The other was, as the collaboration is now dubbed, Sirvana: Sir Paul McCartney's new song performed with the reunited members of Nirvana.

It did happen, right? You won't know from the official recorded document, which the press releases refer to as a "selection" of songs. The rest: Springsteen, Clapton, Roger Waters, Bon Jovi, Stones, Who, etc. And Adam Sandler. Yeesh.
