  • My Top 10 Songs.

    Oto ranking dziesięciu najbardziej cenionych przeze mnie utworów. Mam nadzieje że nie pominąłem żadnego, a jeżeli tak to trudno.

    10. Chop Suey!

    Ranking otwiera zespół który ma dla mnie sentymentalne znaczenie, gdyż to od jego utworów zaczynałem słuchać muzyki rockowej. Mowa tu o amerykańskim System of a Down. Ten metalowy zespoł łączący w sobie także alternatywe, w konsewkencji stworzył nowy podgatunek nazwany soil. Nie ukrywam że trudno mi było wybrać jedną piosenkę, gdyż każdy ich utwór jest dobry. Ale zdecydowałem się na Chop Suey, pokazuje w pełni czym jest System i jak nieokreślona muzykę grają.

    9. Opera 2

    Miejsce dziewiąte zajmuje rosyjski piosenkarz Vitas. Mówią o nim że ma syreni głos godny najlepszych śpiewaczek operowych świata. Utwór który wyróżniłem to Opera 2, jest to zjawiskowa piosenka, wręcz niespotykana, zresztą jak i inne przeboje Vitasa. Jego wokal to to co uwielbiam najbardziej, a mianowicie niesamowity falset w dodatku wykorzystywany w artystycznych kompozycjach. …

    Well, it's that time of year again. Time for the list of the best albums of 2007. I have never done any such list. Not for music, nor anything else. So be gentle.

    As far as music was concerned, 2007 did not impress me much. I discovered a lot of great music in 2007, but most of it was not made in 2007. So I will exclude those albums for this list. Most of the music released in 2007 that I was looking forward to was really pretty medicore in the grand scheme of things. The things that I did like, were not anything really note-worthy. So this was a tough list to compile. But I digress. Let's just get on to the albums.


    Best newly-discovered music:
    Wir sind Helden - Soundso
    favorite tracks: Stiller, The Geek (Shall Inherit), Kaputt, Labyrinth

    An old high school friend had moved to Germany a few years ago and he was about to come visit Florida for a bit, so we decided to meet up. He told me about Wir sind Helden, and I decided to check them out. They had just released a new album in 2007, so I gave it a listen. …

    Sigur Rós has teamed up with EMI to release their first documentary film and complimentary album, Heima and Hvarf-Heim. Directed by Dean Deblois (Lilo and Stitch), Heima was filmed during the summer of 2006 while Sigur Rós toured the breathtaking terrain of Iceland. A DVD version will be released November 5, and will include a 104 page book “containing stunning photos from the tour.”

    Heima, icelandic for ‘homeland’, premiered on September 27 and is being featured in select theaters around the world. Tickets for the premiere in London on October 24 sold out within minutes, and the premiere in Helsinki on September 29 sold out within a few hours.

    Hvarf-Heim is actually two albums packaged together, each with their own front cover. On one side is Hvarf, icelandic for ‘disappeared’ or ‘haven’, with five re-worked unreleased studio recordings. On the other side is Heim, icelandic for ‘home’…
