WOW


I first discoverd Mr. Buble on the NBC Today Show in the christmas 2002 season. I was hooked! I absoutly love this man. His voice is out of this world it gives me chills. Even my 7 year old loves him. We dance to his music all the time, My Favorite song is "SWAY".. For anybody that is thinking about buying this CD, go for it it will be the best [money maount]you will ever spend.

Inaccurate title, but nice to have this.


Four songs at a budget price, so not too shabby. Though you may already have a few of these, since (with the exception of the extended edit of "Are You Ready For Love"), most have these have been available on other CD singles. But for those of us not savvy enough to have bought the imports over the years (or really didn't need to have the "Thom Bell Sessions" (which is not really one of Elton's better records), this will do nicely.
There are two real reasons to have this. The first is the "Are You Ready for Love" single, given its due some 25 years after it was recorded. It was one of Elton's many attempts to stretch out as a musician and songwriter, and he was shooting for a Philly/Detriot soul sound via producer Thom Bell. Bell was running hot with a string of hits for the Spinners, who originally sang back-ups here. Aside from being edited to play out for eight-plus minutes, the "remix" is superfluous. (Its not a remix, really - it's the old method of 70'd disco twelves where the song is spliced out to ridiculous lengths.)
The other is one of Elton's most overlooked songs here in the states. "Song For Guy" was a huge hit around the world when "A Single Man" was released, but somehow escaped that attention in the US. The added synths give it an additional airiness and relieve some of the elegiac qualities.
"Rocket Man '03" is no great shakes, and the acoustic version of "Candle In The Wind" is on the remastered "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" set, which is a must have for fans of all things Elton. Overall, "Remixed" is worth the bargain price, but it's not a necessity.

Fantastic


All of their weirdness aside, ARU are musicians par excellence. This album is an impressive showcase for Apt. Q258's crisp drumming, Oteil Burbridge's jaw-dropping bass lines, Jimmy Herring's guitar pyrotechnics, and Matt Mundy's jazzgrass mandolin playing. And the songs, a mix of originals and unusual covers, are pretty darn good as well!
Oteil is simply on another level from his bass-playing brethren. Combining crisp funk, fluid jazz runs, scatting, and hard rock riffing, Oteil anchors the band with help from 258. The Colonel's odd lyrics, twisted views and all-out weirdness compensate for his aging ragged voice. The album works best when the band locks into a groove, it sinks during the space-jam "Quinius Thoth" and "Walk with Peltor"

A porly produced Yoko Album


The best cut is Working Class Hero. Others are fine. Best part of CD is that is has all the words and CHORDS so you can sing and play along. A nice gimmick I'd like to see more of !!
