KEEP DREAMING MARIAH !!!!!


This album like Mariah's new album "The Emancipation of Mimi" is hot from start to finish. Daydream marked a new era in music as Mariah and ODB teamed up on the Fantasy Remix..Mariah's influence can be seen today very much..This is an all time classic album and was Mariah's biggest seller in the US.

Blondie Will Always Rock!


Over the past twenty years, there have been at least a couple dozen collections of Blondie's hits put on the market. However, only two of those compilations have given an effective overview of the group's career- THE BEST OF BLONDIE from 1981 and PLATINUM COLLECTION from 1994. But fortunately, this GREATEST HITS edition can also stand alongside those two retrospectives, rather than be buried among the other budget collections that have probably picked up plenty of dust over the years.
To put it bluntly, the title says it all- GREATEST HITS collects nineteen of the biggest hits Blondie has scored from 1976 to 1999. Besides including their biggest hits on both sides of the Atlantic- "Heart of Glass"; "Call Me"; "The Tide Is High"; "Rapture"- this collection also includes lesser-known US hits ("Dreaming," "One Way or Another," "Atomic"); songs that only became hits in the UK ("Sunday Girl," "(I'm Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear," "Maria") and standout album tracks ("X Offender," "Rip Her to Shreds", "In the Flesh"). So basically, every essential hit and album track that Blondie scored during their career is here (with the exception of the UK hit "War Child," which is barely a loss at all). Hardcore fans will likely have a personal favorite or two missing, but GREATEST HITS pretty much tells everything a casual fan needs to know about one of the greatest new wave bands.
If there is any complaint about this collection, it's that upon listening, it may seem that more than one group is being represented, for GREATEST HITS does not sum up all of Blondie's styles into one effective mix. That may actually be nitpicking, but casual fans should still consider purchasing THE BEST OF BLONDIE instead, for not only does it focus on the very best of Blondie (and for the record, everything from BEST OF BLONDIE is on GREATEST HITS), but its nonchronological sequencing actually works so that it showcases only one group- a group that was seemingly consistent. But if you want to get virtually every essential Blondie hit and album track on one collection, then you should purchase GREATEST HITS.

One of the best cds I own


I first heard of the Sneaker Pimps at a quirky arts camp, and there were some really weird people with some really weird musical tastes--myself included. There was a girl who was performing a dance number to 6 Underground. Since she was in my bunk, we all had to listen to it a lot. I really liked it, and one day, I looked at the cd, found out who it was, and wrote it down to check out when I got home. I was expecting it to be really techno, which I didn't mind that much, but it isn't. I don't really know which genre to put them in, but it's much more mellow than tecno, so I guess I'd have to say alternative. Now, I have the album, and it's one of those cd's that get better and better each time you listen to it. The first time I heard it, I got a little fidgety, and Spin Spin Sugar really freaked me out because I was not expecting the laughter. I really love Low Place Like Home and Tesko Suicide. The album has songs that are all kind of the same, yet really different. It makes you feel moody and hyper at the same time, which is a strange sensation, but thats ok... Some of the lyrics make me think of Tori Amos (crucify yourself in a low place like home), and some of the melodies remind me of Sheryl Crow (Post-Modern Sleaze, Wasted Early Sunday Morning), but Kelli Dayton has a really unique voice, and that's one of the things that makes this album so special. I think it's a must-have for anyone who likes alternative music, or even techno.

One word: wow.


I first saw Crowder and his band at a PFR retreat, and fell in love with them when they played their first song. I bought all i can say and have listened to it a lot. A whole lot. Anyway, I picked up Can You Hear Us? as soon as I could, which was right when I got home from school on Feb 26 (the day it was released), and it's been wherever I've been since then. I don't know what it is about these guys, but quite simply, they rock! Buy this CD. Please.
