Autumn de Wilde

Andy Langer, music critic for Esquire, looks at a rash of new records by dudes with guitars — a surfer dude, a dude with dreadlocks, and a dude who used to have dreadlocks. Langer also gives his thoughts on the comeback record from Taylor Dayne, the dance-pop diva who sang "Tell It to My Heart."

The records up for review include Jack Johnson's Sleep Through the Static, Taylor Dayne's Satisfied, Nada Surf's Lucky, and Lenny Kravitz's It's Time for a Love Revolution.
