sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1997 (RDF: 75.0%)
At last, Dave Mustaine scores an AotY! After finishing in a close second twice - once to Metallica in 1986 (which I am sure grates on him) and to Judas Priest in 1990 with what was Megadeth's strongest album - Megadeth receives the honor with the final album to feature my favorite lineup, with David Ellefson, Marty Friedman, and Nick Menza. Go ahead and pillory me for doing this with this album, but I'm glad to do this for one of my favorite bands/artists.
A lot of Megadeth fans don't like this album because it does veer away from thrash metal, but objectively evaluated - and please do put the album into context, considering the two that would follow! - it's a good album with good music. It's important to understand what was going on behind the scenes. Basically, regardless of how much success Dave had had, he didn't think it complete without a #1 (see the infamous…

20 Dec 2007, 02:26 by allibabab1. How did you get into 31?
Oh jeez. I don't really even remember when I first started listening to Jack Johnson. I mean, I knew some of his songs from the radio, but I didn't get any of his CDs until later. I think it started with listening to In Between Dreams in one of my computer classes in high school.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Hmm. Probably Hanging by a Moment.
3. What's your favourite lyric by 29?
Haha. No lyrics! Good job, Dario Marianelli.
4. What is your favourite album by 49?
Oh. Uh, I actually don't have a 49 because I've got two 48s. I guess I'll just choose and say Sarah McLachlan's Surfacing.
5. What is your favourite song by 25?
Damn! No 25 either. I guess I'll go with Kate Walsh and say French Song.
6. What is your favourite song by 50?
The Birth and Death of the Day.
7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad?
Not really, because I'm usually just happy to be listening to The Weepies, but if I had to choose I would probably go with World Spins Madly On.
5 Dec 2007, 22:18 by gangstayodaOne of my playlists in iTunes has all my music by female singers. I'll comment on my 10 favorite.
Shakira from Colombia. Years ago, I never paid much attention to Shakira. I remember flipping through the channels and her Whatever, Whenever video was on MTV. I thought she was just another beautiful but talentless singer. Then I randomly downloaded a song of hers over 2 years ago. The song "No" was the most emotional song I've heard in a long long time.
Sarah McLachlan from Canada is probably the first female singer/songwriter I really got into. I've enjoyed all 3 CDs I've heard of hers: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, Surfacing, and Afterglow. The video of World on Fire is one of my favorite videos ever:
Norah Jones daughter of Ravi Shankar. All three of her albums are highly recommended: Come Away with Me, Feels Like Home, and Not Too Late. Here's a video of Sunrise:
10 Jul 2007, 20:56 by emilkarlDenna skönsjungande kanadensiska har haft en karriär fylld av framgång och utmärkelser. Skivan Surfacing som kom 1997 är riktigt bra. Två av låtarna vann Grammys, öppningsspåret Building a Mystery fick utmärkelse för bästa kvinnliga sång och låten Last Dance fick en för bästa musik i kategorin pop. Men det är inte bara dessa som glänser, min favorit är låten Angel, den har en otroligt skön känsla och den silkeslena rösten får en att få ståpäls och rysningar så fort man höjer volymen en aning. En riktigt bra platta som bordes finnas i varje skivsamling. Skivan går att köpa i de flesta butiker runt om i landet eller på nätet för den som föredrar det.
10 Feb 2007, 19:50 by KuutarI shamelessly stole this one from some journal (don’t even remember where...), since I thought this could be quite nice to do, ‘cause I’m obsessed with female singers. I mean really obsessed!
1. They have to be female (pretty obvious...)
2. They have to be different in some way (well, this is actually my own subjective view mostly)
3. Have to have memorable voices (again subjective...)
4. I have to have heard more than one song by them
They’re in alphabetical order, just because.
I really hope I didn't forget anyone. And I want to discover new (to me) female singers all the time, so feel free to recommend me ones that are missing here, but you think I should listen to. I'll be updating this whenever I discover new singer(s).
Favourite song: Red Vines
Favourite album: Lost in Space
Favourite song: Whiskey Lullaby
Alison Goldfrapp (Goldfrapp)
Favourite song: Ooh La La
Favourite album: Supernature
