25 Apr 2007, 11:39 by IdleForLifeFinally got my hands on the new Bright Eyes album Cassadaga! I didn't want to download it (and am doing the same with the new Arctic Monkeys album) because I prefer buying records of my favourite artists. This is my 4th Bright Eyes album on CD.
Firstly, the CD package is AWESOME. It's the best I've ever seen, especially with the hidden image layers that can be viewed with the Spectral Decoder thingie. I guess that it's not a standard thing, might have gotten a better package.
I was warned that it might take 3 listens to understand the album's quality but it took me just one listen to realize that this is one of the best records I've heard this yea, maybe even the best. The album sounds more mature than the previous ones and the production quality is simply the best I've ever heard. I'm slightly disappointed that Cartoon Blues and Tourist Trap from Four Winds, which were among the best songs ever made by the band IMO, were not included in the album. …
26 Feb 2007, 16:59 by spinningechoBright Eyes new EP Four Winds: More mature, yes, but also slightly more mainstream? I like it though, especially Cartoon Blues (which I think sounds a little like Method Acting) and Tourist Trap.
I like it but it doesn't make me feel anything special, which leaves me a little disappointed.
Another disappointment is Danny Saucedo's new single, Tokyo. It grows on me but wtf, you can do so much better!
As for Melodifestivalen, which I as always watch religiously.. well, there's not much more to do than to vote big time for Måns Zelmerlöw!
Not knowing which songs will make it from "Andra chansen", this is my guess for the final results:
1. Cara mia
2. When the Night Comes Falling
3. The Worrying Kind
4. Trying To Recall
5. Samba Sambero
As much as I love The Ark, they ain't got nothing on Måns! Far from the best Ark-song ever.. but on the other hand, Hard Rock Hallelujah was hardly Lordi's best.
1 Feb 2007, 16:52 by xCuredxConor Oberst is ready to go, with long hair and big show.
I don't know what i should think about this whole change that Conor and his mates got through. When 'I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning' got released everyone could see that Conor got more balanced and that he got a straighter view on the world and everything that's connected with life, and especially happiness. Digital Ash was him pushing his electronic an experimental side forward, but nevertheless he lost none of his talent for writing touching lyrics and beautiful lyrics.
Coming to the point, i've already heard the "Four Winds" EP and have followed the news around the new record and his new style frequently with extraordinarily emphasis on the new musical 'style' and the new arrangements he's trying to use.
"Four Winds" is not bad. It's not even just good, it's very good. But it has some songs which just aren't the quality and especially the energy I expected from Conor. …
