The Dark Side of the Heart


Like Ms. Galas said, this is an album of killer love songs.
SKOTOSEME (Mi Sangre Corre al Lado de Ti), violent blend of every kind of musical tendences: greek-turkish folklore, trash metal, free improvisation, white noise, in a storm of a real extreme love offering. John Paul Jones and Pete Thomas are something more than a simple rock rythm section. They create a percusive ambient. The best of all, the recording was made in one take. TONY is a song of howling pain and and gothic blues. In D?VIL'S RODEO (La Lobita Canta) the earth is shaking under the Jones-Thomas's hell kitchen. THE SPORTING LIFE is the best rap ever made, the recording was again made in one take, and the process of editing the Diamanda's voice(s) is an art form in itself. A true dark gem

His Finger is on the Pulse! There is Hope................


For those of us who experienced that September day either first hand at ground zero or (as most of us did)in utter awe in the safety of our living rooms, words and phrases have been bandied about yet none seem to capture the essemce, the tragedy, of the moment. Only a handful of artists are capable of expressing these emotions in words and music without being trite or syrupy. Bruce, the poet and musician, has taken us into the minds and souls of those who lived it, survived it, and, yes, didn't survive it.
His words are carefully chosen capturing the remorse and emptiness felt by those whose loved ones perished. His melodies confirm this sense of remorse but also give way to hope and belief that good too will come.
This is truly a remarkable record from the opening notes to the final chorus. I find myself having an even greater respect for the man after listening to this volume. No one else could have reached down and pull a flower from the ash. More than anything, his message is one of comfort, faith, and hope. It is truly a message for our time.

Damn its good


Damn. To expound upon this would not do this album justice. Pop it in the CD player (and if I may, I suggest that you not be alone for this), sit back and enjoy sensual music bliss.
