Artist: Ricky Martin
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
Not bad


He's no Enrique Iglesias, but Ricky Martin does have talent. His songs in this CD are danceable. Although like his above mentioned counterpart. I wich he would stick to Spanish language songs. Latin lycrics are so beautiful. There a a couple of ballands included to add balance

SOMEONE CALL GLEN CAMPBELL!!!


I always thought that Jimmy Webb's "Ten Easy Pieces" was one of those "lightning only strikes once" kind of discs - but "Only One Life" is right up there in its musicality, intimacy, interpretation, and just all round beauty. Buy this disc!!!

Title: The Velvet Rope
Label: Virgin Records
Artist: Janet Jackson
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
A++ Great


Janet has had many GREAT albums before the Velvet Rope hit the market (and All For You was wonderful too), but the Velvet Rope has something about it that makes it the best. This is one of those albums where you can easily listen to every single track (quite a rarity, I must say (excluding many of Janet's CD's)). Just as JJ's other CD's, this one contains an interlude between every/every-other song -- these interludes are great though, they are funny, sad, and some are just relaxing, but no matter what they are, the songs all mesh together without abrupt stops and starts of songs.
This CD is a little "darker" in some of its subjects, but it does contain all the "happy" songs we all expect from Jan. For the depressed soul, there is Velvet Rope, I Get Lonely, Empty, What About, and Got 'Til It's Gone (feat. Q-Tip). For the upbeat person, there's Go Deep, Free Xone, Together Again, and Special. Finally for the "loving" people, there's My Need, Tonight's The Night (a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful remake of Rod Stewart's hit), Rope Burn, and Anything. Obviously there's a lot for everyone, and it's all great in a different way. A great album for any Janet fan, but if you're not a fan, it'll probably make you one.

Title: Afterglow
Label: Grp Records
Artist: Dr. John
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
Not typical of the Doctor, but GREAT MUSIC


This is surely one of the best big band/vocalist albums there has ever been. It sits well in the tradition of Basie, Schuur, Joe Williams etc. but Dr. John's voice sparkles the way nobody else's possibly could. I strongly recommend this album as not run-of-the-mill Dr. John stuff, but something a little different which shows him off brilliantly - for your ultimate benefit. Please buy this - you will enjoy it.
