A good one in the series


Backstreet Boys - Larger Than Life: A- This is a pretty good song, though, I hate BSB...because they are a pop boy band.

Britney Spears - (You Drive Me) Crazy: A This is a good song, but, gets annoying after awhile.

Marc Anthony - I Need To Know: F This is a really bad song. I thought all Latin explosions were a bad idea (Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Enrique, etc.)

Mandy Moore - Candy: A One of my fav Mandy songs. Very nice!

Eiffel 65 - Blue: A+ One of the best on the album. The music vid was cool and it's a great pop-dance song.

Sonique - It Feels So Good: C- There were too many genres throwed into this song (pop, dance, techno, reggage, rap) that it was a bad disaster.

Lenny Kravitz - I Belong To You: C My least fav Lenny song. It's pretty boring, but, It's Lenny so I guess it's good.

Savage Garden - I Knew I Loved You: B+ This is a good romantic song that I wouldn't mind hearing again. Though, it's not the best on Now 4, it's good.

Joe - I Wanna Know: C Boring, generic, R&B. Nothing special.

Aaliyah - Try Again: A This was one of my favorite Aaliyah songs. Too bad she can't make another. I'll buy her greatest hits album or whenever it comes out. Is it out? Will their be one out?

Jennifer Lopez - Waiting For Tonite: B+ Though I don't like Jennifer Lopez much, I like this song. Pretty good music from J Lo.

Montell Jordan - Get It On Tonite: D This song is like track 9 (Joe - I Wanna Know), but even worse.

Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals - Steal My Kisses: B- This is pretty generic, but it's better than the other generic stuff on here.

Smash Mouth - Then The Morning Comes: B+ This wasn't the best Smash Mouth song, but it's still a good listen.

Train - Meet Virginia: A I have always liked Train, and this song is not exception. Very good Train!

Macy Gray - I Try: B Sometimes I'm in the mood for the song, and sometimes I'm not. When I am, it's a really good raspy R&B song.

Hanson - This Time Around: D Boring, stupid Hanson. You'll know it sucks.

blink-182 - All The Small Things: A+ No better way to end the album. Very great, and I'm looking forward to blink 182's new album in 2005.

Various Artists - Now 4 Overall Grade: A- This was a good installment for Now, though, not the best. I did raised the grade because I LOVE the artwork.

Romantic, in a spacey, kitchy, dreamy kind of way.


Warning: This album is not for everyone. If you have no sense of humour, or thinks music cannot be sexy without talking about "getting it on" or talking at all, this is not for you. There is a large emphisis on lounge music, with french pop, retro and kitchy undertones(which lounge is anyways).It's also a great album to "make-out to" says a friend of mine. That's because it is very relaxing to listen to, you can be with that special someone watching stars, or just want something to listen to before going to bed. Although Techno, it is more likely you will hear this at a lounge than a rave. More upbeat songs like "Kelly watch the stars" and "Remember" are more dreamy than dancy. And that is what this album's sound is (to me) about: Dreaming. Sophisticated and humorous at the same time make this a truly unique album.

Title: Bedtime Stories

Artist: Madonna

R&B Flavour Madonna Style


Bedtime Stories is one of Madonna's best works (alongside Erotica, Ray Of Light, Like A Prayer, etc). This time Madonna goes R&B, and she does it very well. Survival is a fun song, kind of autobiographical for Madonna about surviving despite what everyone puts against her. Secret is the first single, with a sing along hook that you will always remember. I'd Rather Be Your Lover is a heavy R&B type song that will make you wanna dance, like Don't Stop (which in fact was a single on some radio stations that didnt want to play Human Nature). Inside of Me is a lush ballad which is very dreamy. Human Nature is the controversial song where Madonna faces her critics who are judgemental about everything she does. Forbidden Love is a jazzy type song. Love Tried To Welcome Me is another lush ballad and she sounds wonderful. Santuary is another beautiful song where she sings very well, which leads into the title track Bedtime Story which is a preview in a way of things to come (Ray Of Light), Bjork wrote this song and its the highlight of the album in my opinion. The album closes with Take A Bow, a ballad in which Babyface wrote and lends his voice to.
Let Down Your Guard was the bside to Secret, and everyone says its a bad song but i like it. Its a very R&B influenced song and its fun. This album is basically a light headed fun album, with the occasional sad songs. Its a great album and I highly reccomend it.
