Title: Bridge Over Troubled Water/This Is The Night
Label: RCA
Artist: Clay Aiken
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
Incredible voice, but....


A singer like Clay Aiken only comes around seldomly. When was the last time a 'voice' has touched so many people? The music world really needs more great singers like Clay. There is so much junk out there, millions have been wasting their money for years. Although the production of the gospel choir drowns out Clay's voice on a few lines (not his fault), you cannot mistake the immense talent here. Clay's singing of TITN should make this song a classic. Ruben may be a great guy, but the longevity of any talent he may have will be short. He singing on his cd andon the show was not very inspirational. Please, when spending your money on music, use your head and think if you would be listening to the cd you purchased only once, or over and over.Clay's you will be listening to over and over.

Title: The Patriot: Original Motion Picture Score (2000 Film)
Label: Hollywood Records
Artist: John Williams
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
One of Williams' best!


Those who criticize so harshly below obviously can only appreciate stereotypical Williams music which has trumpets and horns constantly blaring out heroic themes. While there is less of that (but still enough to provide contrast), the main theme evokes heartfelt emotion through the sensitive playing of the solo violin. I have heard and own just about every Williams soundtrack and this is absolutely one of my favorites. It combines the fear and anger found in the music of his score from "Amistad", and the heroic and triumphant feelings found in his score from "Far and Away". Definitely give this score a chance. You'll be missing out if you don't.

Title: The Bee Gees - Their Greatest Hits: The Record
Label: Universal
Artist: The Bee Gees
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
Not Timeless, But Entertaining


With the passing of Maurice Gibb, the remaining members of the Bee Gees have said that while they may record together, there will be no new music under the Bee Gees name: truly the end of an era.
Yes, it's easy to criticize the Bee Gees for their participation in the disco excesses of the 1970s. Some of their later music was a bit sappy as well. On the other hand, listening to this collection of music shows that they were much more than a disco band which flared out in the 70s. (In fact, they remained popular in Europe.) Starting with folk music in the 60s, progressing to easy listening, then to disco, and then to whatever you want to call their recent stuff, they certainly had a knack for "reinventing" themselves. While I can't claim to be a huge fan, I think everyone will want to have at a Bee Gees disc or two in his collection. This one was released after 2001's THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN, which was their final disc of new music.
My only complaint with this collection are the songs with Dolly Parton and Barbara Streisand. Wouldn't their remake of "Will you Love me Tomorrow" on the 1995 TAPESTRY REVISITED disc have been a better choice?
Rest in peace Mo - and thanks for the great music.

In The Zone-best Album EVER!


I adore this album a lot because although i'm addicted to bubblegum pop Britney songs like ...Baby One More Time,Oops!.. did it again,Overprotected this album is a lot more mature and you can easily notece that!I would give In The Zone 10 stars if possible.If you are a Britney fan,i surelly sugest you buy this album,because you'll love it.I'm glad that Spears is kinda over of Sometimes,Crazy,Born to make you happy(although i love this songs!!)pop teen beat,it was time for a major change.This album is for everybody,yes including ADULTS!!It's not only for teenagers between 14 years old and 20,if you are 30 or 40 this album will make your life happier and healthier.I mean let's take for example the song Breathe on Me,it's more like Kylie's Slow hit but way better and cooler.It has a dance-pop beat and is to put you in a sexy mood.Also if you had a hard day at the end of the day i recomend you listen to this track(Breathe On Me)cuz it will make you feel better,it's for relaxation,but not only.You can easily dance on it.If you are a hip-hop lover this album will fit you too.In The Zone is more about urban r'n'b fun pop with some hip hop lines here and there!Touch of My Hand has an exclusive r'n'b urban pop folk beat,is something that you never heard before.It was written by Britney Spears herself.My fave song is The Hook Up,which combines fun danceble pop with some hip hop lyrics here and there.I adore this song,is fantastic!At the begining you hear a black dude singing,but only for a few seconds and another few seconds during the whole song, so no it's not a duet.The whole cd is such a fun pop album..you need to buy it fast!Then there is Outrageous,written by R.Kelly.Is a sexy song,because it has oriental-fun pop beat.It uses words like:"in my sexy jeans" or"My s!x drive". There is a part on this song where Britney sings:"I just wanna live in a place where love is free(..)"that the beat has nothing in common with the rest of the song's beat,a really happy part!!Of course after singing it,the beat comes back as it was at the begining. Just simply loving it!I have the european cd,so my in the zone cd includes The Answer-written by P.Diddy,love the song.Is more like r'n'b pop.Is a mature fun song..words just cannot describe it.Showdown is also a great song,pop-r'n'b beat with a catchy chorus.Everytime is a soft and sweet ballad,it will make your life better and if you feel said Everytime is the medicine for you.Highly recomend this song for you.Another catchy song is Toxic,more like a trance urban pop r'n'b song,you need to have this at a party if you want everybody to have fun and dance. Then of course there's me Against the music,the duet with Madonna-more like digital r'n'b urban pop song,with really catchy and awesome chorus.The remix of it is also really good and makes the songs sounds different:i would give the rmx five stars out of 5!I've got that boom boom is the closest song who has teen pop beat.It's a duet with the Ying Yang Twins,so it has some rap-hip hop lines here and there-really good song,because Britney's voice sounds sexier and more mature than her previous albums(i have all her cds!).In the end all the songs are awesome,i love them all.So i sugest you go and rush to buy this cd!!
