Rare cuts, nice mix


I got a review copy for a newsletter I do. Wow. I usually don't go for compilations - but the mix here is really nice. (Beware the surprise track by Captain Beefheart at the end designed to wake you up.)
Need a groovy dinner disc? This is it. And for a good cause it seems.
Played this one for the girlfriend and she asked me to play it again. A rarity around my house.
Pick it up.

metamorphosis


Now this is my second review for Metamorphosis.I read all of the other 1 star reviews(It took for 3 and a half hours).There were 148 1 star reviews(me not included).I heard she sings really bad at LIVE.Her voice sounds bad already.She can't write her own songs because she would just write for example the song "The Math".Someone wrote it but they took it off Hilary's ideas.Hilary would just write "If you can't do the math,the math,the math get out of the equation,equation,equation".The lyrics don't make sense.I feel so sorry for the people who play in the band.I really do.Her mom should tell the truth to Hilary.I mean Britney Spears wrote better lyrics when she was 16.Hilary wishes she can be like Christina,Britney,Jessica,and other blondes.I think she has sick mind.That's it.She's sick with her mind.They made her popular because of that.I know some one 10 years old and she said she's Hilary's number 1 hater.

P.S. I saw the least helpful reviews.The five and four star reviews were them. How's that for Hilary Duff.

Title: Los Angeles
Label: Global Und. [Studio]
Artist: John Digweed

Warning, Know what you're buying. Its like nothing else.


Yes this album gets all five stars. I'd give it six if I could. But I can really understand how this album will frustrate people expecting more melody. Instead Digweed creates a stark sonic enviroment anchored by slow pulsing drum beats.
One of the reasons I love this album so much is the delibrate manor in which John crafts this world of his. Close your eyes while listneing and he fills in all of the stark building facades and wet alleys of the loneliest part of town. Sound mimics a visual element creating these great abstractions. Each repeated lisenting will bring greater and greater appreciation of all these facets. Masterpeice seems like such a shallow term.
But its a tough listen at first. Espcially if you have to listen to it at anything less than really loud. (Great speakers really let the sound fill out) Or, if you're expecting a trancier affair. (Digger's fun MMII should fullfill your trancier needs)
If you want to spend some time getting to know a classic piece of deliberate work, Los Angeles is it. There really is nothing out there like it.
