Review for *Nsync's No Strings Attached


Okay, when I first heard N Sync had a new cd out, I went out and got it, but now I'm sorry I did. It was a waste of money. This album SUCKS! Everybody is already so tired of the first single 'Bye Bye Bye',and somehow it got to be number one. I think these guys need to seriously think about their next album and do writing on it instead of the stupid songs on this one.

The Saturday Night Fever for the 80's


I have owned this soundtrack in first cassette, then vinyl, now on c.d. format. What I would have hoped for in the remastered version was the classic extended versions of some of these tracks radio stations use to play when Flashdance was hot ! Tracks like What A Feeling, Maniac, and a couple of others had some remarkable extended counterparts which are now completely difficult to find.Flashdance did not conform to the "breakdancing" period like other movies or soundtracks did. It was pop-rock at it's best before the Top Gun soundtrack.The only artist to still carry some weight after all these years is Donna Summer.Everyone else is just a faint memory. Where's Kim Carnes ? Michael Sembello? Laura Brannigan? and let's not forget the blue-eyed soulful voice of Joe "Bean" Esposito who was a soothing cross between Michael McDonald and a lightweight version of Barry White on Lady, Lady, Lady.
There is very little difference in the remastered version with regards to sonic quality. The sound level is a little bit higher with a little more bass and a little more treble. Otherwise, nothing that could be considered a revelation ...

Holy $#17!!!


If there's a better hip hop album than this, I have yet to hear it. There isn't a moment on this disc that doesn't leave me holding my head in my hand in astonishment. Dan is the Man! Del is completely on another level! This is as good as it gets, kids. It's crafty, intelligent, DANGEROUS, clever, and completely out of this world!

Grisman and Friends Kick It Up a Notch!


Some musicians, like fine chefs, make it look so easy. David Grisman is one of them. On the CD, "I'm Beginning to See the Light," the prolific mandolinist extraordinaire is joined by Scottish guitar virtuoso Martin Taylor and veteran Grisman Quintet members Jim Kerwin and George Marsh (on bass and drums/percussion, respectively) for one hot little album. While the song list is comprised of many well-loved standards, such as "Autumn Leaves," "Makin' Whoopee," "Lover Man," and "Cheek to Cheek," the Taylor/Grisman Quartet seems to have so much fun preparing its stew and adds enough incredible seasonings to the pot to make Emeril shout, "Bam!" As Don Stierberg, who penned the liner notes, says: "Music need not be trendy to be great." I wholeheartedly agree. (C.A. Carlino)
