    REVIEW: The color of life is ‘Red’ paints a picture of pain

    “Red” is a pressure cooker of a show. For 90 minutes the audience is never allowed a moment of rest, even during the most quiet scenes of the script. This isn’t a nice night out at the theater, but it’s a rewarding one. This is a tour de force of emotion as Rothko and his painting assistant Ken delve into the meaning of art, life, death and fragility.

    AP’s top songs of 2017: SZA, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Sam Hunt

    1. SZA, "The Weekend": Firstly, it samples Justin Timberlake's masterpiece, "Set the Mood (Prelude)/Until the End of Time." Secondly, SZA is singing vulnerable lyrics about sharing her man with another woman, or women (dating is a struggle, people!) And thirdly, SZA paints the picture vividly with her crisp vocals matched to a smooth beat. This is storytelling. It's also creative, realistic and addictive. I listened to it Monday through Friday, and on the weekends.
