PHIL COLLINS: No Jacket Required

PHIL COLLINS: No Jacket Required

GREAT ALBUM! Quintessential 80's. This album oscillates beween upbeat pop songs ( Sussudio) to haunting and brooding classics like 'Long Long Way To Go'.

The collision between British musicians and Black American music has produced an ever growing treasury of limb-pulsing, butt-shaking, hart-swelling music, which--thankfully is often the result of soul-brothers and sisters made from the most unlikely sort--case in point, New Order. In "Get Ready" New Order ditch the temptation of dance-floor stagnation for what seems to be a reach for that mythical pop radio sound--dead since the late 80's--guess what, the idea turns out well. "Get Ready" a hybrid of post-punk-pop-and-b push songs you can sing (even when you don't know the words), music and melody that seem so familiar that you'd think they are pop standards. About the cover design of "Get Ready", at the time gave New Order a much needed youth fueled look firmly placed in the now, yet over the years this image of a young woman holding a consumer video camera will look less of the now, and more of the then, the then you missed out on, the then that was really cool. Nice work :) Noteworthy Tracks: Crystal 60 miles an hour Rock the Shack Someone Like You

  • 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,” “M... 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

Many people like to keep their favorite bands to themselves, only sharing their prized fan-dom with their closest friends, I suppose we all want to have access to the people and things we love most, and feel that standing in the back of a line to see what one discovered by chance rather than through mass media is a humiliating thought. One such band which I keep close to my chest is Dengue Fever. It's hard not to dance when listing to Dengue Fever--which is not surprising--but what is surprising is that their sound is inspired by 1960s Vietnam-war-era form of Cambodian rock called "Khmer Rock", a pop genre that was huge in Cambodian but has only recently come to the radios, and ipods of North America. Here's the thing, Dengue Fever is a L.A. based group who's infectious sound is a not only fueled with a tank of Khmer Rock but is also lined with cool quilting of Southeast Asian pop, Vietnam-war-era lounge music, klezmer, ska, surf rock, and Ethiopian jazz. Anyway, I think it would be fine if Dengue Fever became big here in the States, so there. And what about you, what band are you keeping to yourself, send me a complement and tell me ;)

And to be frank, I like substantially more. For me, there's a little more powere in this one, a little more soul. If you don't know her, you've probably heard her singing back up for Sufjan or the Polyphonic Spree, before launching her solo career.

Corinne Bailey Rae is one of my new favourite artistes. She released this self-titled debut album in 2006 and shot to the top of the charts with "Put Your Records On". "Like A Star" is one of my all-time favourite songs. Corinne is amazingly talented with a husky voice and a genuinely sweet demeanor. She is one the few artists today that has a real talent and I love that she is bringing jazz back to the fore along with artistes like Amy Winehouse. This album is fantastic!
