Some Italian power/prog metal. Nicely melodic, but it feels unfocused somehow. Solid, but not enough there.
2. Isabel Guzman - "All In Your Head"
A spot of Swedish dance-pop now. It's vaguely catchy, but this really isn't a good track at all. Skip on it.
3. Warning - "Tubale (Extasy)"
This would be the dance band of the same name, with a sort of afro-pop sound to the whole thing. I like my afro-pop, but I prefer it done by real instruments.
4. Jerry Gonzalez & The Fort Apache Band - "Along Came Betty"
This is a very intriguing Latin-jazz sounding track. The main trumpet melody is quite conventional, but there's a lot of percussion underneath which makes it sound very unusual indeed. All in all, an interesting little listen.
5. Patricia Barber - "Persephone"
Female jazz singing here, and done quite well. She does seem to be lacking something here, but I can't work out what it would be.
