Digweed at his best!


This CD is absolutely superb! I've heard some of his old stuff and none of them are as great as this next to Los Angeles!

15 Years and Still in My Car


Take two of the best modern jazz artists and make a CD that isn't 2x, it's X-squared. I love some of Sanborn - but he has work I don't play and some I play all the time. It's hard to find a Bob James piece I don't like. If you like Sanborn's "Straight to the Heart" - you'll love this. I've owned it for 15 years - and I never get tired of it. Which is more than my wife can say for me...

Label: Distinctive
Artist: Way Out West

WOW! Way Out West is finally back in prime form.


Let's start with the original album disc. It has an incredible mix of soothing house vocals (the new super hit Anything But You and Melt) and flaring instrumentals (Apollo and the even better Killa). The disc is an even blend of both, with just the right dose of vocals at just the right times. Ulrich Schnauss collaborates on the quirky instrumental track Northern Lights, and gets his face on the cover for it! A sample of Tangerine Dream is even used on one track.

Now I got my CD in Sept, from the UK, which puts the CD out on the Distinctive label, so I am not sure if the tracks are going to be different on the US release bonus mix CD or not. If they are the same, both Amazon UK and US got the tracks wrong, as my CD is much different from Amazon UK's tracklistings (which still differs from the US's). Anyway, this mix CD starts off with some melodic progressive house, until piledriving into some incredible dance floor stomping house tracks, like WOW's own Pulse of Life, which is awesome. Another standout is Carrier by David West, which drives the BPM's way up when you reach track 12. You also get Palava's Surrender, a nice male vocal dance floor track. Also, there are no tracks with expletives in the title, as Amazon US seems to list.

Overall, you get two incredible CD's for the money, one sweet Prog. house mix, and one great new album.

Madonna will always be Madonna


I have to give her credit where it is due. She has mastered a VERY successful career for herself, and stayed at the top of her game (whether you liked her or not) for many years.
This album, in my opinion, is not BAD...it's just OK. And for me, for an album to worthy of listening it needs to be atleast GOOD or GREAT. Most hardcore Madonna fans will most likely drool over this release, despite the poor record sales it has garnered. Madonna seems like she is trying TOO hard to be noticed here, and that act in my opinion is getting quite old. Just be yourself Madonna! People will like you, I promise. And now she's teaming up and making out with Britney Spears? C'mon...She makes out with young girls one day, and the next she slips on a flowery sun dress and tries to sell her Children's Book, what gives? I think Madonna may be going through a mid-life crisis, and it shows on this disappointing album.
