Orphans Lament
I am writing this to refute the previous review that called this "Mongol techno music". "Techno" would seem to hint that this is electronic music that just happens to also have Tuvan-style vocals. That …

Acoustics
The personnel... Jim O'Rourke (acoustic guitar), Henry Kaiser (acoustic guitar), Mari Kimura (violin), and John Oswald (alto sax). This cd is full of absolutely coherent and telepathic listening-driven …

In San Francisco
Sparked by the recent death of Nat Adderley I decided to come here and review this album. I've owned it since before Amazon.com even existed (meaning I didn't buy it here, sorry Amazon!) but in some little …

Island Life
The indelible stamp on this album is the genius of producer Trevor Horn, which is remarkable by itself given that, so far as I can tell, Horn had nothing whatsoever to do with the first nine tracks on …

Stuart Little
This is my second favorite soundtrack of 1999 (First being "Pokemon: The First Movie"). All the songs were great. Except for "Mouse In The House" wich was a waste to even think of. It had all the songs …

Education of Lars Jerry
If I were asked to make a TOP TEN RELEASES OF 1999 list, this recording would be on it without a second thought.     Mats Gustafsson is one of the most creative saxophonists playing …

So Many Roads: 1965-1995
To go through this box disk-by-disk would take up too much space so I'll just mention a few of the memorable moments... I don't know why someone would complain about the soundcheck (WATKINS GLEN SOUNDCHECK …

Backwaters
This is one of my favorite Tony Rice albums. The song COMMON GROUND is one of the main songs I point "new" people to when they are curious and want to hear what Tony means by the term "spacegrass". It's …

Eat to the Beat
The illluminati will tell you that Parallel Lines is the greatest Blondie album, and the charts will tell you that Autoamerican is. Eat to the Beat is supposed to be the album where Blondie got too big …

Midnight Conversation
This debut recording by Ken Elkinson is quiet, intimate, and deeply personal. His gentle, graceful touch never becomes cloying or cliched, and his use of changing rhythms within a piece keeps the songs …

Emotional Rescue
This was one of the first Stones albums I ever bought. Whereas I liked it upon the first few lsitens, it just lacked the staying power to become more memorable about 20 years later and 20 Stones records …

Aftermath
This album was a comming of age disc for this classic band. No longer were the Stones just a blues band although there is plenty of that style on this fine record. Brian Jones makes his presence felt …

Idlewild South
This recording is a big improvement over their debut as the Brothers explore a few more styles. Revival has a nice gospel feel with a nice shuffling beat. This version of Hoochie Coochie Man really cooks …

Viet-Nam Improvisations Nouvelle Musique
As far as my own personal music collection is concerned, this may have been THE reissue of 1999, although the original release date was before I was even born if I am not mistaken. With this album Tran …

Oh the Wind & Rain
Two weeks ago it snowed here, the only real snowfall we have had so far. I sat on my bed while looking out the window to watch the snow fall as I listened to OH THE WIND AND RAIN in headphones. It was …

Bad for Good
The brains behind Meatloaf (if that isn't to mince a metaphor too brutally), Jim Steinman has ace rock 'n' roll credentials. He's a very, very clever man, he's very talented, he clearly has access to …

Just happening upon this cd was beginning of a Lovett obsession. I must listen to something that is Lyle at least once a day now. These sad ballads are simply addictive and mesmorizing. After listening …

Well, I don't doubt that Gary Moore means well, and on the back of the late eighties blues revival this crossover effort certainly sold well, but, for all Moore's respectful hat tipping to his elders …

Dire Straits' self titled first album is one of that rarest of rock 'n' roll treasures: the flawless album. In each of Dire Strait's subsequent efforts - most of them still outstanding -Knopfler has let …
