Title: Uh-Oh
Label: Warner Brothers
Artist: David Byrne
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
A Grossly Underrated Gem


David Byrne's albums always seemed to go by unnoticed, and with Uh-Oh, this is truly a crime. This album is so diverse and colorful and it really deserves some recognition. With the help of a lot of different musicians and instruments, this is a very bright and happy album. The comical opener, "Now I'm Your Mom" starts out a bit off-beat (musically and in subject matter), but includes a wondefully rhythmic chorus. Other highlights include "Girls On My Mind", in which Byrne's vocal delivery is extremely reminiscent of the latter days of Talking Heads, which is cool to hear. "Hanging Upside Down" has features enjoyable and fun lyrics with a driving guitar throughout. "The Cowboy Mambo (Hey Lookit Me Now)" is a very jumpy tune which truly captures the essence of 'Uh-Oh'. The album's closer, "Somebody", is also probably its best track with a very epic and large feeling which ends this album perfectly. Get this album now!

Fluff by Duff


Yes, this is all the world needs! Another talentless blonde songstress performing emotionless renditions of songs written by professional cotton candy makers to sell to the intellectually devoid pre-teen market. Armed with their parents' money and/or college trust fund money, these teeny pop-culture zombies will no doubt pour hard earned money into this fluff machine proving to the suits behind these exploits why they release this trash in the first place and inevitably inspiring them to produce another faceless blonde karaoke star.
With no disrespect to you Ms. Duff, keep your day job and hope not too many patrons viewed your movie.

Title: I'm Breathless
Label: Warner Brothers
Artist: Madonna

Jazz


Madonna surprised me when she released this album after "Like a Prayer". This sound was so different from her previous material. It became my favorite right away. I like her voice against live instruments (the piano, drums, trumpets, sax, strings, ect). She sings the swing-jazzy tunes so naturally. The songs are very witty and entertaining. She really is like Breathless Mahoney (the character from "Dick Tracy" she played) - a jazz club singer from the 30s. There is a wide variety of songs on this CD - swing, jazz, ballads, broadway and even Cuban-flavored "I'm going bananas." And as a bonus (and a total climate change) she included the mega hit "Vogue" which brings you back to the 90s (and throws you off a little). I guess she wanted to remind us that it is still a Madonna album. A great record to have!
