Eminem "Recovery"

Eminem "Recovery"

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

  • The music created by Alberto Iglesias for Almodóvar's Volver is sensual, moving, mysterious, and deeply touching, and vocalist Estrella Morente punctuates the mood perfectly.

I love this album, not because William Shatner is the Captain, but because Shatner's tongue-in-cheek vocals are alway filled his trademark melodramatic sincerity that bounce back and forth between beat poetics and comedy. "Seeking Major Tom" could have been grounded by the gravity of the cool pop alternative delivery that performers such as Grace Jones or Lee Hazlewood are known for—and that would have been great, after all guest appearances include Zakk Wylde, Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, members of The Strokes, The Kinks, Tangerine Dream, Alice In Chains, Deep Purple, Yes, MC5 and other pop icons—instead Shatner leverages his "Space Cowboy" legacy as a theme for self-parody, which is much more fun. The songs on the "Seeking Major Tom" collection, a bag of sentimental pop-rock standards from the space age are also ripe for for parody, and Shatner makes sure that each one has been spiked with enough ironic moxie to make a Vulcan laugh.

  • I wonder if they listen to Serge Gainsbourg on Russian Space Ships? I think it would be pretty cool if they used Serge Gainsbourg music for the next James Bond song.

I'd recommend this collection only if you need a quick fix of Led Zeppelin, otherwise I prefer the richness that comes from their whole albums. As a Zep best of it's ok, Mothership is better as it has more hits, still Early Days & Latter Days: 1 & 2 has that brilliant cover art for those cover art collectors out there.

Variation is good, especially when it comes from musicians who's songs are as additive as they are crucial, Bob Marley is one of the few in this category. Lucky for me he and his friends have recorded a host of songs as well as different versions of those same song, which means I'm still discovering new ways of enjoying the Marley sound. "Bob Marley & Friends" is a 29 track collection featuring a number of rare and alternative cuts, including the original version of 'Duppy Conqueror', 'African Herbsman' and '(Don't) Rock My Boat'.

This is the album that opened my ears to Black Metal. From the opening movements of "Dia Artio" (track one) though to the album's final track "Two Hunters" quickly crosses into sonic worlds belonging to neighboring music genres, and continues the crossing cloaked in many colors taken from Nordic song, shoegazer guitar, and contemporary composition. Wolves in the Throne Room are creating a familiar yet new facet in the process designing a gem like sound and what strikes me is that with each new music invention an epic sound-scape is born in the wake of it.

If you are bright, you'll notice the title is a play on the Hippocratic Oath. The set was recorded live on April 20 -yes, 420, both Benson and ARTISTdirect get the joke- at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis. The release on Comedy Central Records comes with a bonus DVD including full, uncensored versions of his two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials. Uncensored? Now you are speaking my language. Though he is sometimes "too trunk to dweet," Benson has amassed over 70,000 followers on Twitter with lines including "I have HIV. But don't worry, I still get to draw four more scrabble tiles." Don't be fooled by his laid-back delivery - Benson is as sharp as comics come and his jokes appeal to smokers and non-smokers alike. Covering everything from the importance of time-saving abbreviations such as "deets" to his 2010 "Pot The Vote" tour in California, the former Marijuana-Logues star gets audiences high on laughs.

Born Stefani Germanotta on March 28, 1986,... Lady Gaga is a theatrical dance-pop performer whose debut single, the international chart-topping hit "Just Dance," established her as an up-and-coming superstar upon its release in 2008. Born Stefani Germanotta on March 28, 1986, the Yonkers native attended Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private all-girl Catholic school in Manhattan, before proceeding to study music at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts at age 17. Influenced by flamboyant glam rockers such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury (she would later draw her stage name from the Queen song "Radio Ga-Ga") as well as '80s dance-poppers such as Madonna and Michael Jackson, she began playing the piano at a young age and started writing original material as a teenager. In 2007, she began to make a name for herself on the downtown Manhattan club scene with a performance art show billed as Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue (co-featuring Lady Starlight; born Colleen Martin, a DJ and makeup professional), and music industry insiders began to take note. While Lady Gaga was initially signed to Def Jam in 2007, nothing came of that association, and ultimately it was pop-rap superstar Akon who took her under his wing, signing her to his vanity label Kon Live in association with Interscope Records. In addition to working for Interscope as an in-house songwriter, Lady Gaga began preparing the launch of her solo career. Her debut single, "Just Dance," was released to radio in April 2008, and her full-length album debut, The Fame, followed in August. Featuring fellow Akon affiliate Colby O'Donis, "Just Dance" slowly gathered momentum throughout 2008's latter half. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in August, at which time it had already become a massive club hit, but it didn't reach number one until January 2009. Internationally, the song proved similarly popular, reaching the Top Ten throughout much of Western Europe and beyond. In the wake of Lady Gaga's international breakthrough success with "Just Dance," the follow-up single "Poker Face" was an even larger hit, topping singles charts across the board with its combination of pop melodicism and club-worthy production. Two additional tracks -- "LoveGame" and "Paparrazi" -- also cracked the Top Ten, and The Fame was still enjoying a spot on the Billboard Top 40 when its follow-up, The Fame Monster, appeared in November 2009. Although originally planned as a bonus disc (to be packaged alongside The Fame in a deluxe edition of Lady Gaga's debut), The Fame Monster was quickly expanded to eight tracks, thus warranting its own release. Meanwhile, the leadoff single "Bad Romance" became Gaga's fifth consecutive Top Ten single. - Quoted from Amazon
