Russell, where have you been?


I was fortunate to be watching the Good Morning America Show and saw what I thought was a new singer from England, Russell Watson. However, the GMA said he appeared on the show last year. I can't believe I have been missing out on this talented singer. He sang Va, pensiero in two amazing voices. I had to get his CDs and found the Voice, which shows off his "voices." The surprise for me was his "opera" voice. This young man is unbelievable. I have already ordered Encore and will follow this wonderful singer.

Soul baring


i always thought john frusciante was the only artist who is brave and strong enough to bare his soul to the whole world., then i heard this album and it just amazed me, from the stark sound of "I Found Out" to the thrilling soul touching "My Mummy's dead".
so if you are ready to see the naked john lennon soul, buy this album!

Soooooooo appropriate!


My dear Mother died April 22, and my brother brought this CD for Dad and me to hear the song "To Where You Are"...this was about 2 hours after Mom died, and because of the beautiful lyrics, we chose to include this song at Mom's funeral. I still can't bring myself to listen to the song, but one day I'll buy the CD and be able to rate the entire contents. This touched 400+ people who attended Mom's service. Thank you, Josh!

...calling it "trip-hop" is too limiting...


Pretty much every review has heralded this as one of the best of 1998. Normally this would make me say that it must be crap right off the bat, cuz we all know how accurate the critics are. But I must say that they're right on this one. After seeing the video for the gorgeous single 'Teardrop' and downloading 'Angel', I just had to hear what the rest of this album has to offer. (You hear that Metallica?? I actually BUY the CD's I download!!) I FINALLY decided to pick it up about a week ago, despite its hefty price tag, and I must say it's absolutely spectacular. The vocal exchanges of 3D and Daddy G are superb on songs such as 'Risingson', 'Inertia Creeps' and the title track, but the guests (Liz Fraser, Sara Jay, Horace Andy) provide some of the most wonderful vocal displays ever put to CD. 'Dissolved Girl' (feat. Sara Jay) has an effective rock influence and an excellent arrangement, but its Sara Jay's haunting voice that really makes this song special. The same goes for the Horace Andy-led 'Man Next Door' and the 3 pieces feat. Liz Fraser ('Group Four' and my 2 overall favourites 'Teardrop' and 'Black Milk') I do think that 'Exchange' is better served as an instrumental, though. Both versions are stunning, but I prefer the first one. All the songs are so wonderful that you will surely have different faves than myself, but I personally like 'Risingson', 'Teardrop', 'Inertia Creeps', 'Dissolved Girl' and 'Black Milk'. It still doesn't dethrone Mr. Bungle's first CD as my favourite all-time, but it's the only CD I know of that comes even close. Even if you don't like this kind of music (I won't try to pigeonhole it, simply because I can't), you're doing yourself a great disservice by ignoring this album.
