The Definitive Collection by Whitesnake

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Album Review:

Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band’s early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style. Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard rock band of all time by VH1.

In My Own Words by Ne-Yo:

From Amazon.com

You may not have heard of the name Ne-Yo before, but you’ve more than likely heard some of his lyrics–specifically, on Mario’s massive hit, “Let Me Love You.” This talented musician wrote for a number of chart-toppers before the age of 22, penning songs for Mary J. Blige, B2K, and Faith Evans as well. After working for others, Ne-Yo–a.k.a. Shaffer Smith–decided to focus on his own career. Judging by the quality of songs on this debut, his creative well is not running dry anytime soon. The kick-off single, “So Sick” showcases the same tenderness evident in his Mario hit, as does much of this slow-jam heavy CD. Smith also shines on the Michael Jackson-esque “Sign Me Up,” giving props to the icon in the chorus by singing “I just wanna rock with you” with beat-fueled bravado. Ne-Yo’s songs come from a love of seventies and eighties soul; as a result, his music contains some unique samples, including an O’Jays lick (on the sexy “Get Down Like That,” and a Switch snippet (on “It Just Ain’t Right”). Surprisingly, for such a hooked-up songwriter, he has limited the number of guest performers on the disc to just one–rapper Peedi Peedi performs on the disc opener, “Stay.” The depth of the final track, “Time,” clinches the hunch; In My Own Words is an impressive debut for a seasoned songwriter, likely to make memorable music for years to come. –Denise Sheppard

Robbers & Cowards by Cold War Kids

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Robbers & Cowards by Cold War Kids:

From Amazon.com

You’ve heard at least three dozen bands like Cold War Kids already. Bands fascinated with the first Strokes album and bent on expanding the promise of that artistically ill-fated group; bands bent on delivering records that have a fresh take on life in suburbia but offering instead a minor variation of angsty clichés; bands that have quirky-but-catchy takes on songwriting; bands that try a little too hard. As unique as some of the ideas on Robbers and Cowards are, it doesn’t take long before Nathan Willett’s vocals begin to grate (even when he channels Jeff Buckley during “Passing the Hat”) and the time between the initial excitement that swells with the opening cut “We Used to Vacation” and the moment you realize that Cold War Kids is just another mainstream band over-mining a once fertile underground sound is short enough that you can cut your losses and find something more worthwhile. –Jedd Beaudoin

A Beautiful Lie by 30 Seconds To Mars:

Product Description

With over 15 acclaimed films to his credit, actor Jared Leto knew he had a challenge in creating a legitimate musical group, and the fact that a great many gifted thespians have pumped out some pretty awful albums hasn’t slowed him at all. “Any time you have a precedent that’s negative like that, you’re gonna have an uphill battle,” he agrees. “I’ve never shied away from that.” Yet 30 Seconds To Mars’ self-titled 2002 debut easily established the group as a fresh, new force, revealing a multi-faceted outfit that thrived on creative exploration and escape.

Three years later, their follow-up, A Beautiful Lie, catapulted the group to even greater success. Where the debut’s line-up featured Jared on all guitar, bass, synth and vocals with brother Shannon on drums, a full collaboration developed with A Beautiful Lie, including guitarist Tomo Milicevic and bassist Matt Wachter. “The last thing we wanted to do was make the same record twice,” Leto explains. Hundreds of tour dates and a 1996 MTV Nomination for “Best Video” later, 30 Seconds To Mars are proving their stability and still challenging their position. “We’re interested in being as modern as we can,” Leto concludes. “We’re striving to do something different, to look forward rather than back, to be free from the shadows of our inspiration, and to continue, with our voice to make our mark.”

Birth Of The Cool (Rudy Van Gelder Edition) by Miles Davis:

Amazon.com essential recording

The first important leader date from one of jazz’s most seminal figures and farsighted practitioners. Having made his reputation in large measure from playing with bop giant Charlie Parker, Davis confounded expectations when he embraced the “cool” arranging style of Gil Evans, an arranger for Claude Thornhill’s band. Evans, who was employing unique voicings by adding French horns and tuba to Thornhill’s instrumentations, also emphasized a diminished use of vibrato in both reeds and brass, producing a drier, “cool” sound. Two of Evans’s arrangements, “Boplicity” and “Moon Dreams,” appear on the album. Also involved are baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, who contributed such outstanding tunes as “Jeru” and “Venus de Milo,” and Modern Jazz Quartet pianist John Lewis. The result is a date that has withstood the tests of time, fashion, and Davis’s own extraordinary growth as a performer.
