Greatly Suprised!!!!!


I picked this album up from my town's local used cd store, and I'm glad I bought this album. I was a little hesitant in buying this album, because it was John McLaughlin and I don't typically go for his brand of rapid-fire jazz antics. Anyway, I looked at all who played on this album which ranges from rockers like Jeff Beck and Sting to world musicians like Nishat Khan and Zakir Hussain to jazz improvisers like Michael Brecker to jazz fusion pioneer Al Di Meola to flamenco giant Paco De Lucia. Anyway, you get the idea, the album is full of wonderfully talented players. I'm a huge fan of Bill Frisell's and Pat Metheny's, so I guess after listening to these greats for so long I've become spoiled in my musical listenings, but when I listened to this album I heard some of McLaughlin's rapid fire antics and thought "Oh boy, here we go again." Then as the album got into it I started to slowly realize that there isn't that much rapid-fire antics that I expected at all. He was playing with heart and really showing his diversity as a musician. I'm greatly suprised by the music on this album. I like this album because of it's variety of styles and of course the playing. Song highlights for me included the really straight jazz song "Thelonius Melodius," the elegant "Amy and Joseph," the Indian excursion "The Wish," and the fusion tinged "Jazz Jungle."

John McLaughlin suprised me, and I'm really happy with the music and playing on this album.

Last Great Elton John Album


Sadly, Elton's string of great 70's albums comes to an abrupt halt with the release of what has to be his weakest album since "Empty Sky" (or the "Friends" soundtrack for that matter). It's sad to watch how low his standards had plummeted in the 3 years since "Don't Shoot Me" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Instead of the driving rock of "Saturday Night's All Right For Fighting" Rock of the Westies serves up the cliche-driven "Grow Some Funk Of Your Own". Taupin's usual lyrical cleverness is conspicuously absent from weak songs like "I Feel Like A Bullet (In The Gun Of Robert Ford)" and "Billy Bones". Granted, Elton still had a ways to fall, but his descent unquestionably begins with "Rock Of The Westies". I recommend any of his albums prior to this one. This is not the Elton John CD to spend your 13 bucks on if you havent yet purchased "Dont Shoot Me", "Honky Chateau" or "Madman Across The Water".

Some of the Best remixes around


As a DJ I'd have to say this is an essental vinyl/CD to have in your collection...
These are some of the best remixes I've ever heard. I really love the Club69 Vocal Club Mix where most of the other Club69 remixes try to carry on the Vocal Mix....
the edit's are phenominal and the beats are infectious. I think anyone who love remixes especially madonna remixes should buy this single.
