Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

Mos Def is one of my favorite Hip Hop artists. Black on Both Sides explores social issues while at the same time including thought provoking lyrics funky beats and an amazing amount of flow through out the entire album. The album is definitely not a "Rap" album. As I listen heavily to Hip Hop that focuses more on beats and flow, Mos Def has become a staple. For those of you that are just opening your mind to different music genres and are going to give Hip Hop a listen, pick up Black on Both Sides as I know you will not be disappointed. Highlight tracks include; Ms. Fat Booty, Umi Says, Speed Law, New World Water and Mathematics.

  • Really relaxing but still fun and slightly poppy tunes. The lead singer has one of those soft voices usually reserved for whiny songs, but with a guitar-electro-fused background, it comes off wonderfully soothing and pleasant.

You've got the cruisiers with the "nasty" stuff! : ) If you remember greasers in school or John Travolta in Grease -- this movie soundtrack will make you smile, hum and dance. One of my absolute favorite albums. This modest early '80s hit film about a fictional '60s rock icon who mysteriously disappears (or does he?) took its lead from similar legends surrounding the death of Jim Morrison. Its succesful soundtrack arose from an even more surreal brew of art and commerce. Then-journeyman musician John Cafferty and his Beaver Brown Band essentially became the, er, "real" Eddie and the Cruisers, with actor Michael Pare lip-synching the vocals, and other actors miming their parts. Cafferty and crew supply what was then a fair approximation of the Springsteen Sensibility--wall-of-sound bar rock with overreaching lyrics and grab-your-throat vocals.

I love i-Sing Portable Mp3 Karaoke because you can take your music files and instantly turn them into karaoke files. You can play the music on external speakers if you wish, display the lyrics on its screen, reduce/eliminate the lead vocals, and record yourself all at the same time! It's cheaper than iPod!!!! Very cool for christmas/birthday gifts.
