Murdered Love by P.O.D.

Album Review:

Some may find it hard to believe that P.O.D. (Payable on Death) has been around for 20 years and on their latest release Murdered Love, they have gone back to their roots with the sound that fans remember from past years. P.O.D. is able to mix various styles of music including Nu Metal, Reggae, Rap Metal and Alternative. While their name has ties to Christianity, the lyrics are not your typical Christian Rock lyrics and can be a little explicit at times. This particular set also features a Lost In Forever (Scream) video and the accompanying making of video.

Platinum Collection by Genesis

Album Review:

Platinum Collection by Genesis has already been featured in the $5.00 Extended and Double Disc Albums post earlier this month but since it is such a great deal, wanted to spotlight the collection. 40 tracks and over and almost 4 hours of music by one of the more popular bands of the eighties. Originally formed in 1967 by Peter Gabriel and Tony Banks, Genesis kept evolving and after the departure of Gabriel, Phil Collins came in and gave the band a new direction that became a mainstream success. Die Hard fans of early Genesis may not appreciate this collection, but fans of the Phil Collins era, will be treated with a very complete release with hits such as No Son Of Mine, I Can’t Dance, Hold On My Heart, Invisible Touch, Throwing It All Away, Land Of Confusion, In Too Deep, Abacab, Follow You Follow Me, and many more.. This price is only slated to last until tomorrow so don’t miss out on this great album at a great price.

Picture Show by Neon Trees

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Album Review:

Originally from Provo Utah, Neon Trees has gathered quite a following since hitting the spotlight in 2008 after touring with the likes of The Killers. Picture Show is their Sophomore release from a major label and features “Everybody Talks” as the lead single that might sound familiar as it was used in a commercial for the 2012 Buick Verano.

Exiliados en la Bahía: Lo mejor de Maná

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Album Review:

I spent a couple years in El Peru and during that time I gained a greater appreciation of the Latin and Spanish music of the day. One song that I recall hearing frequently was titled ‘Clavado en un bar’ by a band from Guadalajara, Mexico named Maná and it became one of my favorites. On August 28, 2012, you can download their best on Exiliados en la Bahía: Lo mejor de Maná (Exiles in the Bay: The Best of Mana). Although my favorite Maná song Chamán from their album was not included on this single disc collection, many of their best are present including Oye mi amor, Vivir sin aire and the aforementioned Clavado en un bar.

Album Review:

50 Ultimate Essential Classical Songs For Your Baby features over three and a half hours of classical music specially chosen for your little one. It leads off with Die Walkure – Ride of the Valkyries which is probably a good representation of a baby’s entrance into the world with excitement and drama. While the music represented may not be ideal to play while your baby is trying to sleep, classical music can have a great impact on your child as they grow.

Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd

Wish You Were Here [2011 - Remaster] (2011 - Remaster) Album Cover

Wish You Were Here [2011 – Remaster] (2011 – Remaster) by Pink Floyd

Album Review:

Former founding member Syd Barrett, who suffered a spell of mental decline, was part of the influence behind the album Wish You Were Here conceived of and written while Pink Floyd was on touring across Europe in the mid 70’s. The concept album features five tracks, and is a masterpiece consisting of a 9 part song Shine On You Crazy Diamond divided in two for the opening and closing tracks. Three other tracks Welcome To The Machine, Have A Cigar, and Wish You Were Here are all great songs in their own right representing a not-so-veiled critique of the music business. Wish You Were Here was a great follow up to the very successful and has become my personal Pink Floyd favorite.

Chronicle: 20 Greatest Hits by Creedence Clearwater Revival

From Amazon.com:

Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly, and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles–most of which are present on this collection. These include “I Heard It through the Grapevine,” “Lodi,” “Up Around the B ,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” and of course “Bad Moon Rising.” This is an excellent greatest-hits collection, and a perfect introduction to the music of a band that has been enduringly influential. –Genevieve Williams
