THE HYPE IS RIGHT!


As a fan of Bjork after seeing her preform on this HBO show, (I forgot the name) I would be blessed by purchasing her latest studio album, Vespertine.
Mind you, before I purchased any of Bjorks albums I downloaded all of her songs that I liked, most of them were from Homogenic, and some of the most memorable were from Post. I started to fall in love with her song after song, and it's obvious that downloads don't par with cd quality audio. I just had to buy her cds. (except for Debut, which only has a couple of good songs and really isn't Bjork's moment.)
Although my favorite Bjork songs are probably "Hyper-Ballad," "Unravel," "Hunter," "Pluto," and "All is Full of Love (Stigmata Mix)" I consider Vespertine to be her best album, and that's saying a lot when it can conquer the behemoth, which is Homogenic, although Post seems to be her moment, based on many magazine lists.
This is not her most personal album, that belongs to Homogenic. But I can say that this is her most sensual album to date and emotional. This has been the most critically acclaimed album of the years it's been released, which made me some to the assumption that the Grammys don't pay Bjork much attention. This was ripped off of an Album of the Year nod. I mean atleast best alternative album. Every song is a listener, although I do tend to skip over "An Echo, A Stain," redundantly. The whole cd. is mellow, and it fits bjork like the infamous swan dress she wore at the Oscars.
It's hard to choose the best songs, and the realeased singles are obviously some of them, otherwise they wouldn't have been singles knowing Bjorks sense of musical perfectionism. I would have to say that the best song is probably "Unision," "Aurora," or "It's Not Up To You," which should have been the first single off of this album. It's just too hard to decide, but the album as a whole is just perfect, and lives up to her other albums.
It's sad to hear that Bjork's upcoming cd. "Medulla" will be more of a vocal album. Bjork's vocals are good, but I've always been enchanted by the music in the backround, that she composed obviously. I'm so excited for a new cd. though. How long has it been? No more compilations, or singles, a new album, let's just hope it lives up to her others, but I can kind of tell based on stories I've heard that her new cd. probably wont touch her previous, which is her best. I'm still excited and anticipating though.
Bjork you are one true artist, and this album defines that perfectly. Buy it, and only from Amazon.com because they have the best service. Competition is nada!!!! If you like Bjork I reccomend Kate Bush, who is also an underated talent. Her cds. worth buying are: Hounds of Love, The Sensual World, and the Red Shoes, trust me these are the only ones you need to buy.
As for people who don't know Bjork it's better to start off the way her albums came out, because she is one of the only female artist that makes a better album after the other, which is why I'm anticipating "Medulla." If you pick up this album first, that's OK, but don't expect the others to be better, althugh some might be more fond of Homogenic from it's lack of mellowness, or Post for it's playfullness, but Debut doesn't even touch this masterpiece. Buy this Now.

Black And Blue:BackStreet Boys


I wanted to say that I got this album the day that it came out. Although I did like the other two albums... I think this one blows them away. They are finally maturing. They wrote some of their songs this time around and seem to cater to all sorts of people instead of just the teenage set. I like all the songs though as any album some are better then others. I am pleased to see that they didn't put out a record to be like the others but to set them apart. I am a Backstreet fan but my brother in law isn't and I think he liked it as much as I do. If you are a fan this is a must have. If you aren't its definately worth the listen.

STEELY DAN IS BACK!


This album is a worthy comeback for the Dan. I just love Gaslighting Abbie and the title track Two Against Nature. I've said it before and I will say it again now, I have yet to hear a Steely Dan song that I do not like. Welcome back Don and Walter.
