Get up and dance!!!!


Lord of the Dance is an exploitive, fundamentally imperialistic piece of work. Unlike Riverdance, which managed to stay true to the tradition while introducing new elements, Lord of the Dance wrenches all of its material out of context and forces it towards one goal; glorification of Michael Flatley. I remember well the reviews in the Irish Times when the spectacle first crawled out from under whatever rock it was born beneath, and I can't make a better comment about the music than their reviewer, who said something to the effect of "it sounds as if the composer's only familiarity with Irish traditional music came from listening to a couple of old Horselips and Clannad albums." If you care anything at all about Irish music, don't buy this album. Of course, if you're nothing but a mindless twit who loves bombast and noise and hates heart and beauty...

Come back to 1970..


I think this is really a good album. Buy it and you will go back to the early '70 years. In particular, I loved the songs in which Hooker play together with Alan Wilson: I have realised why Hooker considered "Blind Owl" as one of the best harmonica player ever heard. Canned Heat supported Hooker's music much more better than lots of other more known groups. Really nice.

Surprisingly bad


Whenever Madonna's in trouble she usually calls Patrick Leonard in for the rescue. Unfortunately this time not even Pat can help Madonna save face. Never has blending pop with techno elements been more mundane. ROL is neither cutting edge nor radio friendly. The only decent songs are the ones with five or more songwriters. Those being ROL and DW.
Whoever said they have never heard emotional techno should check out the FAR superior PORTISHEAD a true techno act. And one that has been producing emotional music long before Madonna tried to take credit for it.
