N Sync: Not just another "Boy Band"!


I thought this was a GREAT second album. *N Sync combines the playful-ness of the early Beatles and the funk of the '70's era Motown. The first single just tells you to fasten your seatbelt, and enjoy the ride. The stand out cut is the a cappella " I Thought She Knew". With Lance Bass anchoring the song, this lifts them to the realm of extra-ordinary. Other 'backstreet' bands would do well to emulate, and not imitate.

You Owe It To Yourself


One hit song after another after another after another after another. If you are a Whitney Houston fan, you owe it to yourself to buy this wonderful 2-disc volume of Whitney at her musically best. Includes a beautiful new track with Deborah Cox and a song that was not on any of her CD's (I know cause I have them all): One Moment in Time, which is done so beautfully. Whitney Houston is a great artist and I think we've waited long enough for this collection. But it could not have come at a better time. At a time when tabloids and the news and her own misfortunes are ripping her reputation apart, something comes along to remind us why we loved her so much back in the day. I don't care what anybody says, Whitney still got it going on!

excellent CD


I have this CD since many years. I still listen to ALL its songs with the same deep appretiation of the very first day I heard it, at that time as an LP, at one of my friends' house. I do not think I can describe the beauty of his music, voice and texts with my simple words, I would just ruin them. I warmly advise you to listen to this CD ... it speaks for itself, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as my friends and I do. It is REALLY EXCELLENT.

SAMPLING FROM JAMES BOND - GOLDFINGER


I've had this cd and the remix edition in my cd collection for about 8 years now. I've always been a fan of trip hop and found the Sneaker Pimps to be a group that certainly secured their niche with this album. too bad it was a one time shot (their second album falls short of their debut, mainly with the loss of their lead vocalist). But after a James Bond marathon this weekend, I noticed something about the track "6 Underground" that in my 8 years of listening had never noticed before. The main source of this track comes from the Goldfinger Soundtrack (you can hear it when James Bond finds Jill Masterson covered in gold). I always knew there was something drawing me into that song but that diffently made me understand why. Which is another reason why I've grown to love British trip hop over American. The Brits really research and find classic samples that the listener may not recognize but will fully enjoy.
