Fabulous!


This album is absolutely brilliant! I have it on constant repeat in my car! I live in England and nobody else here seems to have heard of Clay, so I'm spreading the word! Every track is fantastic and Clay's voice just soars. Why didn't he win American Idol?!! Can't recommend this album enough - buy it!!

Same Social Awareness, new groove


Well, this was a surprise. The wondering started with Bruce's announcement in late 2001 - he was finishing up a new album, and this one would have "almost no piano."

Huh? That's like a Tarantino movie where nobody gets shot.

Bruce isn't taking up shred guitar anytime soon, so that means the new disc is chock-full of enough different keyboards, organs and MIDI effects to give Keith Emerson a headache. He's like a kid in a candy store. It's not an enormous shock considering that he did the same thing over half of Spirit Trail four years ago, but he takes the whole thing a step further here. "This Too Shall Pass" starts with an icy organ and suddenly turns techno with a crazy drum beat. "Try Anything Once" is practically hip-hop. "Sticks & Stones" sounds like Brian Eno hopped up on crack. There's a generous helping of happy dance beats scattered all over the place. "So Out" is one of his most rocking tunes ever, and I could almost imagine "The Good Life" or "Place Under the Sun" being picked up as radio singles. Incidentally, those last two are the most joyful, mood-lifting sunny tunes I've heard from anyone in a good long time.

Big Swing Face.. by the way, Bruce took the title from a 1963 Buddy Rich album which is also well worth checking out.. wonderful drumming.. oh, where was I? Big Swing Face. It's happy, bouncy, funky brain candy for the masses. The lyrics don't read quite as well as what we're used to from his other work; there's some stream-of-consciousness style and a fair amount of straight prose scattered through the rhymes. If you liked the second disc of Spirit Trail and wouldn't mind more in the same vein, welcome. If this description sounds disappointing and you want to hear more of the brilliant piano work Bruce is known for, you may be better off waiting for another release (He's thinking of doing a collection of solo piano performances next). You've been warned.

dreadful


Well, I hate to say it but with the exception of a couple of catchy toons this comp is lousy. I have 100s of mix compilations and this one is at the bottom. The mixing is subpar and I think these guys are really trying to be too cool for themselves. Each of these gentlemen have mixed incredible tracks together and on their own. However, this dark and dreary road to repetative nauseum really sticks out as aweful when compared to Chris Fortiers Bedrock and all the other really good stuff out there. If you like bedrock, pick up Jimmy Van M or Chris Fortier. If you like trance with some progressive house try Hernan Cattaneo. Dj Tiesto is another jewel. See my listmania for other worthy purchaces. Just do yourself a favor and stay away from this.
I just took another look at this one and pulled off some of the dust. Unfortunately, I still don't like it. rock the vote :)
