Direct Hits by The Killers

Album Review:

The band The Killers is comprised of Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer, and Ronnie Vannucci Jr and started out playing local gigs in Las Vegas and eventually signed a contract with a UK music label. From there, they started receiving attention and earned many recognitions as a top selling new band. After four studio albums, they put together Direct Hits that included a couple new songs along with their best so far. You’ll find great songs like Mr. Brightside, Somebody Told Me, All These Things That I’ve Done, When You Were Young, Just Another Girl, Shot At The Night, and 9 more. Get your hands on this standout collection as it is one of the more than 500 $5 albums on sale right now.

Hayley Westenra: Pure by Hayley Westenra & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & Ian Dean

Album Review:

As the fastest-selling international debut classical album to date, Hayley Westenra: Pure has become the best selling classical album for the 21st century in the UK. Working with Sir George Martin, the direction of the album had a unique appeal and has been categorized as a crossover classical album and served as a precursor for her joining with the Irish group Celtic Woman in 2006. Hear exquisite versions of classics like Dark Waltz, Across the Universe of Time, Martin: Beat Of Your Heart, Amazing Grace, Heaven (Waiting There for Me), and more. IF you enjoy her music, you can pick up other Hayley Westenra releases for just $3.99 right now.

Vegas by The Crystal Method

Album Review:

Looking over the new list of $5.00 albums, I saw an old favorite from 1997. Debut album Vegas by The Crystal Method put Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland on the hot list as their songs kept showing up in movies, games, TV, and commercials of the day. Vegas features long and catchy tracks like Trip Like I Do, Busy Child, Cherry Twist, High Roller, Comin’ Back, Keep Hope Alive, Vapor Trail, and three more. If you haven’t heard this album, take the samples for a spin and see if it gets you moving. For me, it brought back many great memories.

Her raspy, smoky vocals has become a trademark for Melissa Etheridge who entered the music scene from the underground and rose to prominence in the early nineties.

Beyond the Dream by Orkestra

Album Review:

Mik Kaminski and Kelly Groucett created Orkestra as a project after the end of ELO and while somewhat short-lived, the tracks contained on this release is reminiscent of the ELO of old with great string arrangements balanced in the music. Fans of ELO or classic rock may just find a hidden gem in Beyond the Dream featuring Some Kind of Magic, Fly Away, Everybody’s Got to Need Somebody, Don’t Turn Away, and more. See what other $3.99 deals you can find.

In Light by Givers

Album Review:

The nice thing about not having a daily deal from Amazon for a few years now is that we can just pick fun albums that are a great price to feature. In Light from the Louisiana based world beat indie pop band Givers is one such album and is a great listen from start to finish. Get great songs like Up Up Up, Saw You First, In My Eyes, Ceiling of Plankton, and more for just $5.00 right now and see what everyone is talking about.
