5.0 out of 5 stars and I have loved almost all of their work, Nov. 21 2014
This review is from: Greatest (Audio CD)
Perfection! I have been a Duran Duran fan since 1982, and I have loved almost all of their work. This collection contains most of their singles from their debut up until 1997's Medazzaland. Covering nineteen beautiful singles, "Greatest" is one CD where you don't skip any of the songs. My personal favourites include "Notorious", " Skin Trade", "A View to a Kill", "The Wild Boys", and heck...the whole bunch. :)

This review is from: Rio (Audio CD)
This 2nd album by Duran Duram is a classic, Rio is on my 10 top ten favourites of all time. Every song on this is amazing. Even the non-singles stand out. From the propulsive "Hold Back the Rain" to the sombre and majestic "New Religion" . A must have New Wave / New Romantics recording in your record collection. :)

This review is from: Versions (Audio CD)
Versions is an amazing update of Zola Jesus' last CD "Conatus" + a few other songs from her catalogue. It's a great companion piece to her already impressive work, just updated with orchestral arrangements that emphasize her beautiful voice. The only new song on this is Fall Back which is just excellent. The production and arrangements are a collaboration with J.G. Thirlwell (Foetus). If you like the work of Kate Bush, Bat For Lashes, this could be to your liking as well.

This review is from: Hypnotized (Audio CD)
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 "Tomorrow's Hits" is easily their most accessible, Nov. 9 2014
This review is from: Tomorrow's Hits (Audio CD)
The Men are an extremely talented rock band out of Brooklyn NY. This is the 4th full lenght CD on Sacred Bones Records (they had one prior released independently). They started out in the punk rock vein, and have slowly introduced classic rock and Americana influences to the mix. Consisting of 8 songs, "Tomorrow's Hits" is easily their most accessible, but no less enticing. I can't wait until the next release. I absolutely love this CD :)

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing recording this is, Oct. 9 2014
This review is from: Love Cd (Audio CD)
What an amazing recording this is. This is my first introduction to Amen Dunes. The first song that caught my attention was the brilliant " Lonely Richard" , but the rest of the songs are just as amazing. Another great release from Sacred Bones Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a beautiful discovery this was for me, Oct. 7 2014
This review is from: July Cd (Audio CD)
What a beautiful discovery this was for me. July is actually Marissa's 7th studio album, but first on Sacred Bones Records. Being a fan of the label, I checked out snippets of Marissa's songs. At first, the one that stood out for me was Drive which is just a beautifully sung masterful ballad. I then ordered the CD through Amazon and as I started listening to it, more songs ingrained themselves. Lots of amazing songs throughout, the aforementioned "Drive", "1923", "Firecrackers" "Dead City Emily", "Desire" etc... The CD itself is wonderfully produced by Randall Dunn. A beautifully sad collection of songs that actually leave a smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars recalling the best of 80s movie soundtracks, Sept. 30 2014
This review is from: Innerworld (Audio CD)
You may surely have heard Electric Youth's collaboration with College on "A Real Hero" from the magnificient "Drive" soundtrack. This is included here on their 1st CD called "Innerworld". It has the feel on an instant classic, recalling the best of 80s movie soundtracks. This is music to bring a smile to your face, it's vintage electro-pop. From the very first song "Before Life" until the last "Outro" , you embark on a beautiful journey. This is the best recording I have heard yet this year. Flawless :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect follow-up, April 23 2014
This review is from: Express (Audio CD)
Like "Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven" before it, "Express" continues in the same vein and expands on it. That's to say that some of the songs are a bit punchier. This remastered version includes extra songs as well. The only ones that I don't listen to are "B-side no.1 and B-side no.2" which are really just short instrumental selections (a little over a minute each). The rest of the songs though are sublime. Again the sound quality is excellent. For me, one of the best recordings of the 80s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect debut, April 23 2014
Released in 1985, "Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven" is the perfect soundtrack to the mid eighties. This is the remastered version from 2000 that includes 6 extra tracks and mixes which only enhance the recording. Opener "If There's a Heaven Above" begins with the line " Throw the world off your shoulders tonight Mr. Smith". Listening to those lyrics, you feel that for 40 minutes or so, you're leaving your troubles behind. All the other songs are exceptional as well,everyone seems to have a favourite. Also, I want to mention the sound quality, the remastering was done beautifully, It's a shame that beautiful music like this is trarely made these days.
