We are entering new lands here


The space age music here on Phaedra is something else. The music pulses through and at times the music feels very haunting to listen to.....which disproves electro music critics that electronic music lacks the feeling of a real guitar ( total rubbish that )
Listen to this music and be amazed - this CD takes you places!

Britney's NOT A GIRL anymore....


Britney Spears is the undisputed queen of teen pop nowadays, but she's growing up. Her latest album, the self-titled "Britney," is proof of that. The CD is incredible. Filled with her normal infectious pop with brilliant hints of R&B scattered throughout, there is not one weak track. "I'm A Slave 4 U," the opening track and first single, is an exotic-sounding and sexy masterpiece. Other standout tracks include "Overprotected," the fun and frisky "Boys," and the CD's lone ballad, the lush and beautiful (if awkwardly titled) "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman." There is a surprising rendition of "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," and Britney's boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, shows up on the final track, "What It's Like To Be Me." All in all, Miss Spears has proven herself to be an essential diva in the world of music and pop culture.

Title: Outside
Label: Virgin Records
Artist: David Bowie
Rating: 5/5

Hallo David


If I could only have five Bowie CDs, this would be one of them. It has become an article of hip faith that Bowie sold out with "Let's Dance" and never recovered. "1. Outside" is not only a return to form, but a hopeful sign that more can be on the way.
"1. Outside" is not a hopeful CD. It is deliberately dark and twisted. Like "Ziggy Stardust" and "Diamond Dogs," "1. Outside" is a concept album. But the concept, something about ritual art murders, is not its strong point. As far as I can tell, the story, such that it is, is not a metaphor for anything else, nor is it tongue-in-cheek, nor is it entirely serious. Before "1. Outside," tried to do a serious, straight dark album expressing his frustration with drugs, violence, racism and other unpleasantness of life with the first "Tin Machine" album. Although "Tin Machine" was a relief from the vapid pop Bowie had been churning out for a few years previous, it didn't work. "Tin Machine," which was supposedly a group album, was too literal and straightforward for Bowie. Bowie's best, like "Scary Monsters," leave the listener feeling worried but wondering what exactly Bowie is singing about. That inspires to a second listen. And David Bowie is not exactly who we want to hear give non-poetic sermons about illiteracy and crack.
"1. Outside" does not make the same mistake. The explanations provided in the liner notes about the "story" only add to the confusion about the album's subject matter. That makes it more intriguing - the real theme is not the story, but the dark, desperate mood that switches between the fast and loud and slow and hopeless. This isn't a statement of frustration about certain things; it is a concession to the insanity of everything.
Along the way it achieves that other thing that "Tin Machine" lacked - good music. Songs like "The Heart's Filthy Lesson," "Thru These Architect's Eyes," and especially "Hallo Spaceboy" rank up there with anything on "Heroes" or "Low" ("1. Outside" marks the return of Brian Eno as a Bowie collaborator). And there's a lot of music. The disk is more than 70 minutes long. Not all of those minutes are used well, but I'd rather have something than nothing.
With one possible exception. The album has several flaws, none more outstanding than the inclusion of "Strangers When We Meet." "Strangers" is not a bad song. It fits in well on the mild and not terribly well know "Buddha of Suburbia" (where it appears twice). But it has no place on "1. Outside." Although the lyrics to the song are somewhat sad, its melody and tenor are upbeat. This is not the first inclusion of an odd, uncharacteristic song on a Bowie album (what, for instance, is "It Ain't Easy" doing on "Ziggy?") But this is the first time Bowie closes an album with one of these ill-placed songs. Most of Bowie's best albums start with a song that can only have been placed first, and end with a clear closer. "Strangers" almost mocks that tradition and detracts from the overall work.
The various "segues" also don't add much, other than several minutes of Bowie speaking in electronically altered voices as various "characters" in his story. These segues are not music, nor are they poetry. They aren't as laughable as, say, the spoken part of "Glass Spider" on "Never Let Me Down," but they detract from the excellent songs that they string together (which wasn't an issue on "Never Let Me Down").
For some reason, probably promotional, the many of the songs from "1. Outside" have appeared in different movies including "Seven," "Basquiat," "Lost Highway," and most creatively in "Starship Troopers" (a variation of "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town" plays in the background at the prom, but does not appear on the soundtrack). "Strangers," too, is from the soundtrack of a BBC television show ("Buddha of Suburbia").
If Hollywood recognized the value "1. Outside's" music, Bowie fans, who often consider this Bowie's best since "Scary Monsters," did as well. But the album was not a huge hit, and perhaps for that reason Bowie's next album, "Earthling" is a departure. Although "1. Outside" includes some hints of dance music, that's what "Earthling" is all about. Bowie's latest, "hours" is different still - calmer, slower, duller. The ch-ch-change came quickly and for the worse.
Where Bowie has another great album in him is for the future to tell, but "1. Outside" hints that he just might. It stands as a great Bowie album and therefore a great album, period. Don't let it stay outside your collection for long.
