Title: Ray of Light [US CD/Vinyl Single]
Label: Warner Brothers
Artist: Madonna
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
And I Feeeel!!!!.


''Ray Of Light'' along with Cher's ''Believe'' were definitely the best dance songs/albums from the year 1998. Both which went #1-- in over 20 countries selling over 45 Million copies. Her album ''Ray Of Light'' officially became 4 times platinum in the USA and multi-platinum in more than 16 countries and gold in 9 countries. Between Madonna and Cher-- they both (literally) took over the Billboard Dance\Pop Charts in 1998. Absolutely Timeless!.
This CD Single offers 4 versions of the song, including the album version.
1. The Album Version, Produced By William Orbit. Features very mechanical and erratic sound effects along with high-energy balanced beats, that accompany her vocals which sound very circulating and moving. I do like this version, but I will also say that the remixes below outshine the original.
2. Sasha Ultra Violet Mix. This version/mix is much darker and wispy-speeded, moreover a very serious trance mix, with very high production values, remember Deepsky's Mix of ''Die Another Day'', this is something similar, possessing the very same distinctive design and sound. This is definitely for more progressive and serious clubs. Excellent Mix!!!!.
3. William Orbit Liquid Mix. This mix proves better vocal range compared to the original, her voice has been altered and-- well the recording sounds very different to the original-- and actually better, while her voice has also been vocoded in some parts-- Although this mix carries the same comparable and mechanical sound on behalf of the original. A fantastic mix, with enhanced vocal range!!!.
4. Victor Calderone Club Mix. Likewise...this is without doubt the best version of ''Ray Of Light'', featuring a immense house stream combined with subjective tribal enhancements, also managing to bring in a variety of thickly based drums and along with that-- Madonna's voice is in absolute fine form, riveting rapidly, keeping a incredible and inspiring tune...MAN!! this mix is absolutely FANTASTIC...I love the part when she sings the verse ''And I Feeeeeeeeeellll!!!!!!!!!!!'' It completely Rocks!!!.
So here you get the 4 versions of ''Ray Of Light'', each which are EXCELLENT!. You also might want to pick up the ''Ray Of Light Pt.2 (CD Single)'' which features great enhancements of the mixes included here.

Title: Bridge Over Troubled Water/This Is The Night
Label: RCA

This guy can sing


I love Clay Aiken. I don't normally go for the kind of stuff he sings, but I've enjoyed this CD-Single and his album "Measure of a Man."
This single contains two songs. It has Clay doing a cover of Bridge Over Troubled Water." That is a fantastic song. I don't like it as much as the Simon & Garfunkel version, but thier version is one of the greatest songs ever. Clay sings it well and it's a great song except for some of the background stuff.
This is the Night is a beautiful love song. It's kind of sappy, but I like it. Clay sounds sincere while he does it, and I think thats what makes his so appealing. You can tell the guy loves to sing music and he's thankful for what he's gotten. He hasn't forgotten his roots and he really is a humble guy.
This is a must for Clay fans. American Idol fans might get a kick out of it as well.

BEST LIVE CD EVER


Having folllowed Brian Kennedy since his days with VAN MORRISON'
I remain a huge fan.
However his latest live cd tops everything he has done before.
If you like a voice that sounds as pure as Christopher Cross!
If you like your Music Heartfelt' then this is the music for you.
The stand out tracks on this live cd are as follows.
CHRISTOPHER STREET...SO WHAT IF IT RAINS...THE BALLAD OF Killaloe.
These 3 songs are worth the purchase alone.
The studio cds as good as they are'just dont capture his outstanding voice like a live concert does.
I dont normally enjoy live concerts.
But this is the exception.
Also check out the live dvd of this concert.
It has a superb documentry with Brian at home in the hills of TIPPERARY.
SUPERB SUPERB SUPERB

Title: Whoa, Nelly!
Label: Dreamworks
Artist: Nelly Furtado
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
whoa, nelly!


a contemporary of esthero (who lends her considerable talents to this effort) and dido, portugese-canadian diva nelly furtado soars on this debut album. never has a more quixotic collection of songs flowed so seemlessly from one to another. furtado's voice, that of a fearless and sassy pixie, is capable of working magick on genres as disparate as folk and hip-hop. engaging lyrics and compelling melodies combine to make this one unforgettable album.
