Re: L. Ron Hansen new [re: Marquis]  

Is that the same Angus Clark that played on Kitaro's "Mandala" album?

He makes an appearance about 2:27 into the video below. He has a very Gilmouresque sound-

Kitaro-Kokoro

The Lehman Album new [re: ghostlove]  

Loudon Wainright III has an excellent album out: "Songs For The New Depression" is exactly what the title says, a collection of songs about bankers, managers, common people and who else was too greedy or is severely hit by the recent economic developments especially in the USA. Excellent songs inbetween Country, Rockabilly and traditional singer/songwriter style with wonderful lyrics that make you think, laugh and occasionally want to reach for a gun. Great stuff.

In reply to:

Sounds pretty interesting but what is the rap / hip hop quotient? That worries me.



Yes, I was also concerned about that - turns out the rap/hip hop is far from overpowering, but it's an album I could easily lose half of.

On Melancholy Hill, Some Kind of Nature & To Binge are highlights for me.

Middling MGMT new [re: EJ]  

I don't mind the vocals, but my first impression is that it sounds like they went out of their way to try to make it "interesting," which pretty much never works.

I wouldn't call myself a fan, exactly, but "Kids" and "Time To Pretend" were pretty undeniably hooky in a way that none of these songs seem to be. And as "hook" is a dirty word for the sort of people who like to backlash against a certain type of band, this feels to me like a band consciously playing against their strengths.

Or else I'm making it all up.

I just want to see more of that girl from the Kids video. She's the main reason I've watched it 800+ times. That dear sprite is the antidote to Lady Gaga.

Re: Hot Releases for 2010 new [re: sonofsilence]  

Holly Golightly is back with the Brokeoffs the album is called Medicine Country. It feels as though it's got a wider appeal than her previous albums.

Hendrix still putting out albums? new [re: sonofsilence]  

OK, so how many of you bought the "new" Jimi Hendrix album Valleys of Neptune?

Apparently this release kind of makes sense -- it's from a bunch of studio sessions in 1969 (shortly after the release of Electric Ladyland), with the original Experience, Only, we have heard most of the songs a thousand times already and some of them (the embarrassing cut of "Fire") were clearly not meant to be spread to the public.

Nevertheless, I bought it for the 1000-km car trip I just did. Didn't regret the purchase. The one really "new" track made it all worthwhile.

Valleys of neptune the song

It's SAILER, idiot!

In The Middle Of A Fire Fight new [re: Emil]  

Iggy and The Stooges' Raw Power returns to the shops as the double CD called "Legacy Edition". The album has been remastered by some Mark Wilder and whoever he is he did his job well. The sound is much deeper and and has more pressure than any of the mixes I have heard before. And it is still a wild recording. The fabulous "Search & Destroy" is even more of a treat now that the fantastic guitar on it sounds voluminous and agressive as it always should have done. "Gimme Danger" was the track which least suffered from the lack of depth in the mix but songs like "Penetration" or the title track itself gain loads of presence and pressure here, with the thin and blurred noises from the old days vanishing completely.

Great stuff.

The second CD is a live recording from Atlanta 1973, which is great fun because of its authenticity. Two outtakes from the "Raw Power" sessions round off a release which is defintely worth the money. Even if you already have several "Raw Power" issues in your recor collection. This one stands out.

Re: In The Middle Of A Fire Fight new [re: EJ]  

So, they've remastered the '98 Iggy remix then?

It's a shame, cos they could have fit both mixes on Disc One, while still keeping the extras to round out Disc Two. I'd actually like to hear Bowie's mix remastered, cos I've got the original CD release of RP and while it sounds a little thin and tinny, I put that down to the analogue-digital converting of the day.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

Apparently it is the original Bowie mix which has been remastered. This critic would have preferred the Iggy version to be remastered and thinks this one here is not heavy enough. Myself I think it is a wonderfully balanced remaster, just as I said before.
