Born Marshall Mathers III, superstar rapper Eminem (his alias is a play on his initials, M and M) has always appeared to court controversy. Eminem grew-up near 8 Mile Road which separates the City of Detroit from the suburbs. He claims to have survived a harrowing up-bringing at the hands of a drug-addled mother following their abandonment by his father. These circumstances and events have been played out in various tracks and helped to fuel the fires of controversy that seem to follow the rapper around. - quoted from Amazon

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

I thought you might want to know. A military expert reveals how science fiction is fast becoming reality on the battlefield, changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and ethics that surround war itself P. W. Singer’s previous two books foretold the rise of private military contractors and the advent of child soldiers— predictions that proved all too accurate. Now, he explores the greatest revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb—the advent of robotic warfare. We are just beginning to see a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too real. More than seven- thousand robotic systems are now in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating just how smart—and how lethal—to make their current robotic prototypes. And many of the most renowned science fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon on the next generation. Blending historic evidence with interviews from the field, Singer vividly shows that as these technologies multiply, they will have profound effects on the front lines as well as on the politics back home. Moving humans off the battlefield makes wars easier to start, but more complex to fight. Replacing men with machines may save some lives, but will lower the morale and psychological barriers to killing. The “warrior ethos,” which has long defined soldiers’ identity, will erode, as will the laws of war that have governed military conflict for generations. Paradoxically, these new technologies will also bring war to our doorstep. As other nations and even terrorist organizations start to build or buy their own robotic weapons, the robot revolution could undermine America’s military preeminence. While his analysis is unnerving, there’s an irresistible gee-whiz quality to the innovations Singer uncovers. Wired for War travels from Iraq to see these robots in combat to the latter-day “skunk works” in America’s suburbia, where tomorrow’s technologies of war are quietly being designed. In Singer’s hands, the future of war is as fascinating as it is frightening.

Van semi-akoestische dromerige liedjes (Lovesick Mistake, It's Not That Easy), zoals Karen Bergquist (Over The Rhine ) die kan zingen tot krachtige popsongs die verder gaan dan waar Katie Melua en Maria Mena in een akoestische setting blijven hangen. Nergens gaat ze zich te buiten aan rock. Met producer, componist en toetsenist Jamie Kenney is een mooie mix gemaakt van subtiel drumwerk uit een doosjes, electronica, strijkwerk, gitaar en drums, met opvallend bescheiden rol voor de piano. McCarley swingt en zwiert. De 11 liedjes gaan erin als koek en voor je 't weet heb je op Repeat gedrukt.

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!
