Title: Lost at Sea
Label: Tooth & Nail Records
Artist: Craig's Brother
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
Awsome Album


Like my title suggests, this album is just plain awsome. The album is very dynamic and each song in the album is dynamic. Most punk songs sound the same and have the same tempo throughout the entire album. Lost at Sea doesn't bore you with a stagnant repeatative beat. Everything about this album is great, the lyrics, the vocals, the actual music, etc. If you like punk, but get sick of every song sounding the same, like a dance album, give Lost at Sea a try.

Title: Heavier Things
Label: Sony
Artist: John Mayer
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
Another great cd from John Mayer


Heavier things John's latest CD is proof of John's talent. Though it is a little diffrent from Room For Squares (his previous album) due to the instrumentation in it(theres more keyboard and synth than in RFS) you can always count on John's witty catchey and emotional song writing. Also John is a accomplished guitar player and it shows more on this record. I would reccomend this reccord to anyone especially guitar players. We wil deffinately see more of johgn in years to come if he keeps up with great releases like this

JOHN DENVER is the BEST!


I am proud to say that I have this wonderful cd of John Denver's! I am a long-time fan of his, and when I hear Rocky Mountain High, Good bye again, For Baby [For Bobbie], and all his other beautiful songs, it just amazes me how I hear a different meaning, each time I hear John's songs! This is a must have cd/album for any John Denver fan! PEACE & ENJOY!

Where do I begin?


I enjoy the music on this CD very much. It is primarily a rock 'n roll album featuring repetitive rhythms with a heavy beat supporting tape loops, distorted sounds and occasionally vocals, either natural or modified. A common complaint from those unfamiliar with a genre is that, "all the songs sound the same." Perhaps, your parents were more enlightened, but this is often what mine told me. ;) While this may apply to other CDs of the techno-dance-acid-whatever genre, that generalization is without substance for the Chemical Brothers, in general, and specifically, DIG YOUR OWN HOLE. Please allow me to direct your attention to the first and last tracks. BLOCK ROCKIN' BEATS and THE PRIVATE PSYCHEDELIC REEL are each distinctive and unique from each other, regardless of how similar the basic rhythm structure may appear. BRB is a dynamite dance number driven by the bottom end. The drum carries the beat front and center while the bass provides the requisite bridge between rhythm and melody. The entertaining sounds drive the song forward by maintaining interest. TPPR, on the other hand, is "tripey" piece. The beat is in the upper registers, now, as a synthesized metallic melody works its mesmerizing influence until it is joined by snare and cymbol. TPPR also showcases an interesting treatment on a clarinet played by Jonathan Donahue. Lastly, BRB has lyrics and TPPR doesn't. ;D Comparing the title track with WHERE DO I BEGIN also reveals the range of composition. DYOH is, again, a dancehall number driven by the bottom end. This time, a synthesizer replaces the bass guitar. Interest and tension are maintained by adding and postponing the introduction of new phrases and/or sounds. While DYOH is an aggressive song, WDIB is a delicate, ethereal song. WDIB features Beth Orton, who was awarded the title of Best British Female Vocal for the year 2000, sings in hypnotizing, yet detached voice. Delay is used to harmonize. Accoustic and backward guitars accompany. It is only after 3'10" that a drum is introduced which grounds the original melody until the five minute mark when a coda, of sorts, finishes the song. The bass playing by Seggs on LOST IN THE K-HOLE is indeed "amusing." It resembles the progressive rock of the early seventies enough for me to expect a commentary on lawnmowers. ;D I enjoy this CD, not only because of the heavy, high energy beat of the more popular numbers, but also, because of the variety of approaches. If you are interested in techno-whatever-this-is with a heavy driving beat, or in a wide range of song styles within that genre, this CD will be interesting to you.
