When you buy a new CD, and it kicks your butt, feel free to write an album review. Rate it on a scale of 10, and please go into quite a bit of detail about why you gave this particular CD that rating. And please, let's keep to a minimum any threads that say, "Yo dawg, Fiddy's new CD is da shizznat!" and nothing else. :P

A list of all the CD reviews will be listed in here. Feel free to bump any of them at any time. The two most current reviews will be stickified.

I don't think they are of interest to many here, but the Levellers new album is really good after you've listened to it once or twice.

And Robert Plant's new CD has some good tracks, too.

"Unbreak my Heart" by James Galway is an awesome Album. I'd give it a straight 10/10. His flute music just catches you. He makes my flute music sound scary. It's like you can feel the emotion in his playing; it's simply amazing. In this Album, as in any other, he plays a varity of styled songs. Love songs, war songs, catchy songs, etc.

Dare by Gorillaz is like 10/10 WOAH DUDES!!! Better than feel gd inc for some random reason.
So Demon Days is one heck of a good album. Is it out yet? If it is im running as fast as I can to MVC! (With my wallet of course :wink:)

Gorillaz are a very unique band, scissor sisters are probably the nearest u'll get to em if you think about it.

May I review a CD that came out a long time ago, or does it have to be a recent CD?

It should be fine to review one that's came out a long time ago IMO (but I'm not the mod here!), because you're promoting it (or not) just the same.

I know snowball already answered this but I'd like to add a thing or two. Of course you can review an old CD. That makes this forum more interesting. And when you think about it, most people know most new music because it's played on TV and radio nonstop. But if you review say a Black Sabbath cd from 30 years ago, you might be exposing some people to something they've never heard before, and if your review causes them to check out the band/album, all the better. :wink:

Yes, of course. The CD doesn't even need to be a recent one.

Well, I know the last reply was last year, but I'm contributing to the topic. Today, I'm reviewing Left of the Middle by Natalie Imbruglia.

Here I go:

General Review - Left of the Middle , released in 1999, was the debut album by Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia. She launched an intenational sensation with her first single, "Torn" , a cover of the original song done by Ednaswap. The single went # 1 on the US hot 100 airplay. Other jewels include "Wishing I Was There" and "Big Mistake. On the whole, Left of the Middle gets 4.9 out of 5 stars

Track Listing:

1. Torn - Rating : 5 out of 5 stars - Individual Review - Torn was Imbruglia's first single, and is her best track on the album. With soft dace beats and the catchy, repeated chorus of "I'm all out of faith, This is how I feel,I'm cold and I am shamed, Lying naked on the floor, Illusion never changed,Into something real,I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn, You're a little late,I'm already torn " makes this song melancholic yet soothing.

2. One More Addiction - Rating : 4.75 out of 5 stars - Individual Review - One More Addiction is a slightly breathy, addicting track with roller-coaster lyrics.

3.Big Mistake - Rating : 5 out of 5 stars - Individual Review - Natalie's next single, "Big Mistake" wasn't as popular as Torn, but still generated enough interest in the Aussie in its own right. With a bit of a rock vibe, and some raw vocals, it's my third favorite track on the album. :wink:

4.Leave Me Alone - Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars - Individual Review - Leave Me Alone is probably the worst track on the album, but still isn't that bad. Vocal echoes and effects with a jazzy saxaphone in the background, leave me alone is necessary for any fan of pop/jazz.

5.Wishing I Was There - Rating : 5 out of 5 stars - Individual Review - Wishing I Was There was Natalie's third single, and my second favorite behind Torn. Singing about a boyfriend to some unusually sassy and sunny beats, with a few pounds of sarcasm, suggests an air of getting over a relationship quickly, and plotting the consequences for the cheater. :twisted:

6.Smoke - Rating : 4.9 out of 5 stars - In. Review - An extremely depressing song, "Smoke" was Imbruglia's fourth single, and was a hit as well. Singing about the loss of a loved one, vocals are a bit raw (which, in my opinion, is a good thing) , and piano is used to make a hypnotic beat.

7. Pigeons and Crumbs - Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - In. Review - A funky, droning song. A confused girl sings about how she's in line to be crushed, but she's so insignificant that it doesn't matter. A cool background vibe with soft vocals, Pigeons and Crumbs is a widely disregarded jewel of Natalie's.

8. Don't You Think - Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - In. Review



THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CUT SHORT DUE TO PARENTAL INTERVENTION (AKA my mom finding me on psypokes for the 5th time today :rolls:) the review will be continued and edited on Sunday, April 20th 2008 (if I get the time :( )


Sorry,

Crystal

Edit : Did some more songs, and DragonPhoenix explained why this should be moved to a different thread. :shock: sorry!! saving this to post on my thread. Sorry for the trouble I've caused and time I've wasted. :oops:
