The songs on this disc are a true celebration of music. Yes, there are perennial Grammy nominees on here. Katy Perry's song "Wide Awake" continues her string of hit songs . Rock Hall of famer Bruce Springsteen contributes the patriotic "We Take Care Of Our Own". Kelly Clarkson's hit song "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger" confirms her talent as an singer.
This CD also makes me a fan of some new artists..The song "Shake It Out" by Florence and The Machine stands out..This song reminds me to let go of the past. Florence Welch's voice is very uplifting. This song makes me feel empowered. "Madness" by Muse is another song I enjoy. It is a techno rock love song. I love the beat of this song very much. Rock is well represented here with two songs by Jack White. His guitar riffs on the track "Freedom At 21" are superb. The song rocks. "Lonely Boy" is a song that will get me on my feet any time I hear it. Another gem is "Hold On" by Alabama Shakes. Brittany Howard's soulful sincere voice ensures this group will hopefully make music for many years to come. "The A Team" by Ed Sheeran is a song that raises my social consciousness to people who are homeless and struggling to survive. This song is very touching. "Wanted" is a pretty country song that reminds me to look for the inner beauty in a woman. I hope that people will take the time to listen to these new artists and enjoy this disc overall.
