Loose: Nelly Furtado

I'm pretty sure "maneater" was written about me. I usually don't like the second or third album by an artist, but each of her albums sound so different than the last and are still manage to be great.

Maroon 5 have released two multi-platinum studio albums (2002’s Songs About Jane and 2007’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long), scored a string of hit singles (“This Love,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Harder to Breathe,” “Sunday Morning,” “Makes Me Wonder”), won three Grammy Awards, and sold 15 million albums around the world. Now the Los Angeles quintet is back with its third-studio album, entitled Hands All Over — a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk, and R&B, that showcases the band’s considerable strengths: buoyant, unforgettable melodies, sleek, stylish grooves, charged lyrics about turbulent relationships, and crisp, dynamic performances. Adam Levine, the band’s lyricist, began writing the songs that appear on Hands All Over after winding down from a world tour in support of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. A few months later, Maroon 5 received a phone call from veteran studio wizard Robert John “Mutt” Lange (AC/DC, Foreigner, The Cars), who had heard that Maroon 5 were beginning to write a new album and expressed an interest in producing it. “We didn’t even talk to anyone else,” Levine says. “Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who’s ever lived.” Levine’s first performing experience — in fact the event that ignited his desire to become a singer and musician — actually involves Lange. The story goes like this: 20 years ago, when Levine was 10, he attended a friend’s birthday party “at one of those places in the San Fernando Valley where the kids dress up in rock’n’roll gear and lip-sync their favorite songs,” he says. Levine chose the Def Leppard classic “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” “I knew I could sing because my music teacher told me I had a voice, but I had never really performed before. I grabbed the mic and just went for it. Afterwards I knew that I’ve got to do this for the rest of my life. That’s what got the whole ball rolling for me.” The classic anthem “Pour Some Sugar On Me” was, of course, famously produced by Lange. “If that’s not a full 360, I don’t know what is,” Levine says. “It doesn’t get more circular than that.” - Quoted from Amazon

  • Na het Best of album in 2000 leek Plumb (de band rond Tiffany Arbuckle) na 2 albums (Plumb uit 1997 en Candycoatedwaterdrops uit 1999) het voor gezien te houden, maar daarna werden van tijd tot tijd weer nieuwe albums uitgebracht,... Na het Best of album in 2000 leek Plumb (de band rond Tiffany Arbuckle) na 2 albums (Plumb uit 1997 en Candycoatedwaterdrops uit 1999) het voor gezien te houden, maar daarna werden van tijd tot tijd weer nieuwe albums uitgebracht, Beautiful Lumps of Coal (2003) en Chaotic Resolve (2006). De laatste jaren kwam de herontdekking van ooit als slaapliedjes bedoelde In My Arms en Cut in vette dance remixes die het via iTunes goed doen. Een begrijpelijke keuze om de hits van toen en een aantal remixes van dit decennium te verzamelen op Beautiful History: 2 nieuwe liedjes (Hang On, Beautiful History), 3 opnieuw opgenomen liedjes (Stranded, Here With Me, God-shaped Hole) en 8 dance remixes op een dubbelCD. De eerste disc opent met Stranded (2010), een nieuwe, meer rock-georiënteerde versie van het liedje dat op Candycoatedwaterdrops staat en Here With Me. De Redemption Extended Version van Damaged stond op Chaotic Resolve. Ten opzichte van het origineel uit 1999, zijn er teksten aan toegevoegd. God-shaped Hole (2010) heeft ook een steviger rockjasje gekregen. Als enige song van het 2003 album Beautiful Lumps of Coal is Real opgenomen. Van Chaotic Resolve (2006) zijn de rocker I Can't Do This, de ballads Cut en Better, en het liefdesliedje Blush (Only You) opgenomen. Van het slaapliedjesalbum Blink (2007) ontbreekt het origineel van Always in tegenstelling tot de radio edit van In My Arms. Van beide liedjes zijn remixes op disc 2 te vinden. Met de nieuwe Hang On, qua thematiek gelijk aan In My Arms (ook al stormt het buiten, hier bij mij ben je veilig) werd je de afgelopen maanden met remixes lekker gemaaakt voor de release van Beautiful History. De 'gewone' versie gaat vooraf aan de afsluiter, Beautiful History van Blink. De tweede disc bevat de Bimbo Jones radio edit van In My Arms en zijn Extended Mix van Always, de Bronleewe & Bose radio edit van Cut, hun Extended Mix van In My Arms, de Digital Dog radio edit van Hang On (en op de iTunes albumversie zijn bewerking van Cut) en zijn Extended Mix van Cut. jRyann's radio edit van Always, David Aude's Extended Mix van Hang On en, opnieuw extra tracks op de iTunes versie, Pete Hammond's Extended Mix van Hang On en de Bronleewe & Bose Club Mix van Always, maken het dansfeest compleet. Voor degene die rond de eeuwwisseling zijn afgehaakt zullen de dansbare versies een enorme verrassing zijn. Voor de wat jongere fan is Beautiful History een interessante samenvatting van Plumb's recente albums.

  • Jens Lekman has quirky ironic wit about him that instantly throws him in the same category as Belle & Sebastian. "Night Falls Over Kortedala" is a love story of some sort, drenched in humorous lyrics that can only make you smile.

I still think of the ride to Ocean City, MD when I was a kid when I hear "Witchy Woman." My mother who was an Eagles fan in her youth never let go of them and we listened to her tapes all the way down the road. This is the record you want if you want their hits... in actuality -- they are all good albums. The pre-Hotel California years were arguably the best for The Eagles (though there were, thanks to Joe Walsh, some stellar future moments). Their mix of country, folk, and rock had a harder, grittier edge, and helped define what would become known as the Southern California sound. There was just enough of a country feel in the beautiful harmonies of "Best of My Love," to blur the edges between the genres. "Take It Easy" and "Lyin' Eyes" could easily have come out of the new Nashville school, as well. The twang that characterizes the guitar intro to "Already Gone" and the leads in "Witchy Woman" and "One of These Nights," also pays tribute to country's guitar greats. Greatest Hits 1971-1975 houses a scant ten singles, but not only does it illustrate the magic of the collaboration between Glen Frey and Don Henley, it shows the breadth of The Eagles impact on the many who would follow their lead. --Steve Gdula
