Clockwork Angels by Rush

Album Review:

The latest release from Rush, Clockwork Angels is the latest $0.99 deal to hit Amazon. One of the greatest rock bands hailing from Canada, Rush brings their distinct sound with a little more edge in their first new release since Snakes & Arrows in 2007 and it does not fail to deliver. Drummer and lyricist Neil Peart has always been a fan of science fiction which is a common theme in a Rush album. Clockwork Angels will be soon be novelized by Peart’s long-time friend and author Kevin J. Anderson You can preorder Clockwork Angels: The Novel from Amazon.com.

The Best Of 1980 – 1990 by U2

Album Review:

The band U2 from Dublin Ireland has been a part of the music industry for about as long as I can remember. Bono and company have put together some of the most memorable albums over the years. If you do not already have their earlier albums, The Best Of 1980 – 1990 is a great place to start as it includes some fan favorites such as Pride (In The Name Of Love), New Year’s Day, With Or Without You, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, Where The Streets Have No Name, Sweetest Thing, Desire and many more. A great deal currently at only $2.99

50 Must-Have Handel Masterpieces by Various Artists & George Frideric Handel

Album Review:

Many times when you think of George Frideric Handel, you might think of the Messiah, one of his best known works. However, 50 Must-Have Handel Masterpieces from Cobra Entertainment does not include this Christmas favorite but features many of his best works including Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks in D Major. Pick up this great collection to compliment your Handel Messiah recording.

50 Must-Have Tchaikovsky Masterpieces by Various artists

Album Review:

Tchaikovsky, he’s not just for the holidays anymore…

I am not sure which is harder, spelling his name or playing the music he composed, both are quite difficult when Tchaikovsky is concerned. I was immediately drawn to this new release mainly due to the album cover and the look in his eyes… his piercing stare kept telling me that I should buy this download. Not a bad deal for over six hours of classical music from one the most renowned composers from the romantic period. While in no way complete at 50 selections, the highlights from some of his most familiar pieces is a great start for any new Tchaikovsky connoisseur and after listening to some samples, there is a strong probability that I will have Chinese Dance (from The Nutcracker) playing in my minds for the duration of the evening.

Wicked by Various artists

Album Review:

One of the most beloved modern musical of the past decade, Wicked tells a hypothetical back story of the witches in the Wizard of Oz based on the Winnie Holzman book. Composer Stephen Schwartz has written both music and lyrics to this Tony award winning Broadway play. As an added bonus, the performance is brought to life by Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, two of the best voices in the business. If you are a fan of Broadway music, don’t let this $2.99 soundtrack pass you by.

Our Version of Events by Emeli Sandé

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Album Review:

Simon Cowell once called Emeli Sandé “his favourite songwriter at the minute” a talent which she has developed by writing songs for other artists such as Cher Lloyd, Parade, Susan Boyle to name a few. Her debut album Our Version of Events was released this year but started developing when she was just 11 years old and is a Pop/R&B album that reflects influences from artists like Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige and Beyoncé Knowles. Sandé worked closely with Alicia Keys and Professor Green in developing the album which has become very popular throughout the world reaching #1 on the charts in the UK, Australia, Canada and Denmark.

Saturdays = Youth by M83

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Album Review:

I have recently rediscovered M83 and have really enjoyed what I have heard. Being a kid from the 80’s, I can really appreciate the retro sound that this modern shoegazing band from France has accomplished. Their fifth studio album Saturdays = Youth helped to take M83 to the next level with four singles including Kim & Jessie that was ranked number five on Pitchfork Media’s list of the top 100 songs of 2008. If you enjoy the sounds of the 80’s, then Saturdays = Youth would make a great purchase.
