Title: A Funk Odyssey
Label: Sony
Artist: Jamiroquai
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
A good alternative, but not "A Funk Odyssey".


While I do like this album(it does deserve its 4 stars), I don't think it's an improvement on their prior albums. I fell in love with Jamiroquai because of their "acid jazz" sound; while I'm all for letting their sound evolve and have new elements at least experimented with, I miss their original musical personality. Also, the title is misleading--I'm a huge fan of "funk" as well, and with Jamiroquai's previous acid jazz format, I thought the two styles would blend perfectly. In this, I was disappointed; the first few songs are funky, but the rest has more of a disco vibe--which is fine, but again, misleading. My favorite songs? Basically all of them, but especially Feels So Good and Love Foolosophy; my least favorite was Black Crow, it sounded a little forced. My favorite albums are Synkronized and Travelling Without Moving, but I would recommend this album as a good alternative to all the overrated [stuff]that's so popular now.

Drowned World....we just want to drown in Madonna's world...


Although the album version of Drowned World/Substitute For Love is pretty good, it was the remixes of Sky Fits Heaven that really interested me. ALthough they were pretty good, they weren't anything that special, but overall, a good buy!

This CD (almost) rocked!


Ricky Martin's first english album is truly fantastic. He mixes wonderful upbeat songs like Livin' La Vida Loca, La Copa De La Vida (the Cup of Life) and the fabulous Maria, with gorgeous, poetic ballads: She's All I Ever Had, Be Careful, Private Emotion and I Count the Minutes being my personal favourites. I fell in love with this album on first hearing, and it gets better and better the more I listen to it. One of this years must haves. Ricky Martin has it all with his vivacity, looks, energy and sexy voice, and is well on his way to becoming a super star. Buy this album now and prepare to fall in love....

Title: Thankful
Label: RCA
Artist: Kelly Clarkson
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
America's Idol


Kelly Clarkson definitely shows how diverse she can be on her cd 'Thankful', which also debuted at NUMBER ONE =) The cd starts out with a ballad called "The Trouble with Love Is"...and then goes into her first hit single "Miss Independent". This song is co-written by Christina Aguilera..also when you listen to Miss Independent, it makes you wanna rock out- the lyrics are great and the music is edgier than the other tracks on Kellys cd. Stand out tracks include "You Thought Wrong", the duet with Idol contestant Tamyra Gray. Their voices blend so well together. "Low" is an amazing song, as well as "Just Missed the Train". The record has a mixture of pop, r-n-b, soul and more. You can listen to the entire cd over and over again. Fans will be pleased with 'Thankful'!
