No Strings Attached is awesome!

From the moment I heard the first few notes of "Bye, Bye, Bye" to the very last note of the a capella song "I Thought She Knew" I knew I was addicted to this album. The one thing that I love the most about this album is that every album has a different feel to it. This album definitely sets them apart from the "boyband" stereo-type. This album is phenomenal and incredible! Congrats and props to the guys of *NSYNC for putting together such a great album! This is only the beginning of a promising career, and I can't wait.

I'd never heard of the Chemical Brothers

A friend recounted that he was searching through the personals one day when he came across the ad of a woman who claimed to be a Chemical Bros. fan. He was thrilled and I was mystified -- who are the Chemical Brothers?

And now it's love.

For casual listeners of electronica/dance music, there is plenty in this compilation to make it worth the price. Star Guitar is the kind of music you want to play when you're racing down a dark highway on your way into the city, Get Yourself High is head-bop fantastic and both Loops of Fury and Chemical Beats sounds like they should have made it onto a Matrix soundtrack.

In short, this is a great compilation for the Johnny-come-lately Chemical Brothers fan.

Not real tenor singing

I'm afraid what is featured here is not real tenor singing. The voice of Russell Watson is too small to be a classical singer. His voice range is too narrow and his top notes too precarious to be called a tenor. Besides, there're other obvious flaws like a shortness of breath, suspicious intonation, unclean attack.
As a vocal recording, this is far from satisfactory. In fact, it merely let one knows how not to sing and how much harm a lack of technique and musicianship can do to the music.
I can only give this recording at most one star.

I don't like this song

I don't like this song. I'm not sure why. Possibly because it's not very good and is very annoying. I don't know why i gave it two start instead of one because i really don't like it. Possibly because of the color scheme. Maybe because two is better than one--in an abstract sense. I don't know, i'm not a psychologist.
