Title: Reelin' in the Years: The Very Best of Steely Dan

Buy Only If You Think Imports Are Better....

...This has the exact listing "A Decade of Steely Dan..." and I think that "Decade..." even throws in the ultro-rare favorite "FM". Now, I don't know if imports have a better sound quality, or has a sturdier, more strong CD plastic, but let's face it. We can all save a penny or two. Let the reader/buyer beware.

ah 1 star is even a MAJOR compliment..

if i could give it -200 stars, i would. okay, i hate nsync. i've NEVER liked them, nor have i sat through one album *if that were to happen, i would then go assassinate myself*. i have heard all their singles..can i ask WHAT is sooo good about this supposedly TALENTED group? for one, they arent a band; they barely write the lyrics, nor do they write the MUSIC; they dance but not even well; and they lip synch most of the time. tell me, HOW can you classify them as TALENT?? oh my gosh, my DOG can BARK better than they can sing. they are not even close to being gorgeous. ppl GET OVER THEM.

Woke me up!

Imagine you are trying to find a station on your radio and it starts to pick up Martian disco music that's been translated into English. Or imagine that sexy James Bond movie opening number that makes you salivate in anticipation for the coolness that's to come. I first heard Jem as Artist of the Week on our local alternative station, then "They" went into heavy rotation. I thought that song was so exciting and new that I had to buy the CD. I think people who like Prince, Annie Lennox, and Bjork would like Jem more than people into Dido; vocally, she might sound like Dido but her music isn't in the Sarah Maclachlan/Dido lovely voiced, diary-like musings on love and life that these artists are famous for. With Jem, her actual singing voice is not the real draw, although it's pretty; what is new is her space-age sound that isn't like anything I've heard before. It's very accessible and catchy, with excellent hooks, capable of shifting your moods kaleidoscopically from sexiness to slyness to melancholy to anger to happy-go-lucky. Still, it never slides into anything remotely resembling bubble-gum pop. It's stylish, sophisticated, and just wowed me. Favorite cuts: "They," "Come Closer," "24," and "Wish I."

Mariah's #1 fan in the world!

I thought Mariah Carey couldn't come out with a better album than "Music Box". Well, she has, in fact, come out with an even better album than "Music box". I couldn't even begin to describe how perfect and flawless "Daydream" is. I love you so much Mariah, and keep up the classic work!
