5.0 out of 5 stars Happiness is the excellent debut from this British duo, May 28 2015
Happiness is the excellent debut from this British duo. It's filled with well-crafted melancholic pop songs that alternate between synth-propulsed beats and gorgeous ballads. Favourites include "Wonderful Life", "Better Than Love" and the amazing ballds "Stay" and "The Water" .

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is amazing, and it keeps getting better with each listen, May 28 2015
This album is amazing, and it keeps getting better with each listen. The sequencing is impeccable and the songs flow beautifully. I bought the CD on the strenght of the 1st 2 singles, 'Scissors' and 'Go Ego'. Other songs match them in quality, such as 'The Turn Around' which definitely could be a hit if given the chance, 'Wait Up' which is a gorgeous mid-tempo song, and 'Took a Train To India' which is just a beautiful song all around.

As the singer for the British group Suede, Brett Anderson has been an iconic figure for 2 decades now. Black Rainbows is his 4th solo release. This one reverts closer to the style he started out with. I really loved his last release "Slow Attack" which was delivered in a totally different style than this one. While Slow Attack was filled with piano, woodwind instruments and beautiful ballads, Black Rainbows is made up of purer rock songs. Nothing wrong with that though, I love Brett in all his styles. Great underrated singer who deserves greater success as a solo artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't pinpoint what it is I like about this band except to say 'everything', May 27 2015
Yet another Danish artist whose last couple of releases have been perfection. Kashmir have been around for quite a while, but sadly not very exposed in the North American market. I can't pinpoint what it is I like about this band except to say 'everything'. The lyrics, the music, the production, the sound, the singer's voice are all top-notch. Depending on which day I'm listening to this CD, my favorite tune can alternate between each song on this recording. It's that good, give it a try :)

This review is from: Hypnotized (Vinyl) (LP Record)
This is the 2nd great CD that Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi have released this year. The first was part of their other group The Men who released "Tomorrow's Hits" in March of this year. Stylistically, a few of the songs on "Hypnotized" could fit very well with Tomorrow's Hits, especially the title track, + My Mama's Dead and John. The other songs on this release add additional textures , electronic and guitar effects. An excellent additon to Sacred Bones Records catalogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would have loved to see Caravan Girl, May 27 2015
A first retrospective for this British duo who've been, up to this point, extraordinary. Goldfrapp have never failed to re-invent themselves. From trip hop, to electroclash, to disco, to ambient folk, and even glam. Most of their singles are here. I would have loved to see Caravan Girl, and Human included though. Regardless, we get 2 new songs titled Yellow Halo and Melancholy Sky. Hopefully, we'll be graced with a new studio album in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a reflective and introspective CD sung beautifully by this young singer, May 27 2015
This review is from: In The Silence (Audio CD)
"In the Silence" is Asgeir's second studio album which is the English-translated version of his Icelandic debut. It's a reflective and introspective CD sung beautifully by this young singer. Fans of Damien Rice, Bon Iver will probably love this. My favourites on this are "Higher", "Going Home" , "In The Silence" "King and Cross", and "Torrent", but the rest of this 10 song CD are great as well. A very special album.

This review is from: St. Vincent (Deluxe) (Audio CD)
I'm not quite sure how she does it, but Annie Clark has just delivered yet another masterpiece. Two of her previous CDs would have to be in my top ten of all time ("Strange Mercy" and her collaboration with David Byrne "Love This Giant"). This one is just as amazing. "Digital Witness" is certainly an extension of the sounds of "Love This Giant", lyrically it seems to relate how people interact with each other in this digital age. On "Prince Johnny", her voice is sublime. The quality is faultless throughout. She's certainly a true artist that continually evolves. On track to become my favourite recording this year.

I cannot praise this recording enough. It's been on my constant playlist since I purchased it in May 2010. Matt Berninger's voice is sublime, his lyrics are cleverly written and lets the listener into his world which is not always a happy place. The band (Dessner and Devenport brothers) weaves intricate notes seemingly effortless. Standouts abound within the setlist, probably my favourites are Sorrow, Bloodbuzz Ohio, Terrible Love, England......but the rest are inspired as well. Definitely one of my top ten recordings of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars As a fan of his last recording "Nice Nice Very Nice", May 27 2015
As a fan of his last recording "Nice Nice Very Nice", I bought this one as soon as it was released. I can't praise this CD enough. Great songs throughout, favorites include: Rows Of Houses, Post-War Blues, Oh Fortune, and Jeopardy. Please support this talented Canadian singer/songwriter :)
