Special
'My Life's Been a Country Song'

ARTIST: Chris Cagle

RELEASED: Feb. 19

MY THOUGHTS: Has your life been a country song? Well, according to Chris Cagle, his has been. The CD peaked at the top of Billboard' s country albums chart. One of the most popular songs from the album is titled What Kinda Gone .

This isn't Mr. Cagle's first album, but it is one of his best and, I hope, this won't be his last album. Like most country singers, Mr. Cagle came straight out of Nashville, Tenn., and is so far doing great in his career, just like all the other great American country singers.

GRADE: B

'saw iv'

RELEASED: Jan. 22

RATING: R

MY THOUGHTS: For the fourth installment of the gruesome Saw series, my initial expectations of Saw IV are typically low. The complicated plot once again proves itself a worthy successor, however. With an ever-twisting turn of events, you find yourself lost in anticipation and suspense throughout. And although the initial reputation associated with the Saw series is that of extreme horror, gore, and (I must admit) unnecessary torture, the moral of the story, "living life," comes across flawlessly in the end. I promise. As a final thought, I beg the directors to please stop and leave their work on a good note once and for all.

VERDICT: B+

-- Hannah Foerster
