    Hey there,

    I didn't want to use another Owl City track as title... so I chose the last one I was listening to. Actually I never heard from the White Rabbits, but that song was recommended on a Review website. I think it's worth a try. ^^

    Although I'd like to call this a Music Monday, I also have to admit that it's a bit unfortunate that the cover image is again late. So I probably will do a "(part 2)" post... again :-P
    But anyway... here are the new stats:

    Most played artists:

    > Owl City : Is it any wonder? I'd say no. I guess I can consider myself kind of addicted to his tunes.

    > John Mayer : Hm... another familiar name here. I still have to take a look at the lyrics of the Battle Studies tracks... :-/ But the more mellow songs are always welcome when I need to calm down.

    > Michael Nyman : That's the composer of the score for the film "The Piano" as you may know. And although some melodies were often re-used the soundtrack is beautiful. …

    Hello again... 2010,

    :-D having a new system running I felt starting with a... I wanted to say joke... but it's actually a rhyme - but funny though. ^^
    So that's probably the big news of last week - the new computer. Apart from that I also took some time to listen to albums or songs that I didn't give much attention before.

    Like last week there's no cover image to add at this time - so I just go on with the stats.

    Most played artists:

    > Hans Zimmer : Well, I read or wrote something. And so I chose score music. This led to the OST of "The Holiday", a Nancy Meyer film (with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz) which I happened to see some days ago. The score features some lighthearted tunes that you can just play in the background.

    > John Mayer : For testing the newly installed foobar2000 media player this singer was one of my first choices. You can't go wrong with some hours of fine guitar pop music as JM can present.

  • Favorite Albums of 2009 Part 2.

    9 jan. 2010, 6h06m par tylerc904

    6. She Wolf
    I've never been a huge Shakira fan, and I only own Laundry Service (which I overplayed for 2 years straight). But this album is just addictive. It's short but its packed with all different sounds and each track is individually good. Also since the album is so diverse, I can listen all the way through and several times in a row - which I can't for most albums. Best tracks: She Wolf (one of the best songs of 2009 in my opinion), Men in This Town, Spy (featuring Wyclef Jean), Give It Up to Me. Worst: Good Stuff (it was hard to choose because no song on this album deserves the title, but I guess this one is the least amazing.

    7. For Your Entertainment
    I never thought I would like this album, ever. But after reading GaGa & P!nk's tracks were included - I had to listen. And I was shocked to find that the album is amazing. It's so synthy and very produced, but his voice is still something else. Although the wailing can be annoying at times, he sounds pretty great on every track. …
  • Top 20 albums of 2009.

    MY BLOG: music, reviews, personal trials & tribulations, and other thoughts: http://iamchase.wordpress.com

    Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! I have compiled (and it was startlingly easy) my top 20 albums of 2009 (if you know me, you know it'll be an R&B female-dominated affair as usual!). Unlike last year, when I listed 10 and did mini reviews, this time I've got 20 (since my shortlist came to 20 albums, I thought it would just be easier to rank 11-20, than pick out some for Honourable Mentions). No mini-reviews, or I would be here forever, and I think my blog posts are long enough without breaking the 5000 word barrier! So I've just put the best and worst tracks from each album with the album cover, and hopefully you'll be intrigued to download my favourite songs of 2009. And while you're at it, you can download my own album, Quiet Storm, here too! So without further ado...

  • Dibder's New Music Series: Entry 10

    29 oct. 2009, 13h15m par CvaldaVessalis

    I could go into a lot of blather about how much shit has gone down this month, but I think there's a certain YouTube clip that pretty much sums it all up:

    And with that, here's my October journal...

    Love 2 by Air
    Billed as a return to the lo-fi swoonisms of their debut full-length release, 1998’s Moon Safari, Air’s sixth studio album is also the first to have been recorded and produced at their self-built recording facility; and unfortunately that would appear to be where the only vestiges of novelty lie on this release. For ambient, loungified Europop, it ticks all of the boxes, even if most of the tracks here err on the slightly more boring and pedestrian side of elegant levity (hear Be a Bee, which manages to sound like an Air track with none of the warmth or humour prevalent in their earlier work). There are times when the album passes for something more interesting, most arguably on seven-minute centrepiece Tropical Disease which features some nice arpeggios, jazzy horns and chirpy woodwinds…

  • Shakira y yo

    14 oct. 2009, 20h05m par VirginioUrbina

    Todo empezó cuando yo era un puberto molesto e ingenuo y me creía grande porque ya escuchaba la radio (aunque mis gustos musicales entonces no estaban ni siquiera cerca de definirse). Por ese entonces, a punto de entrar a la secundaria (es decir, de 12 años), sentí unas ansias tremendas por experimentar de una vez por todas el amor así que decidí enamorarme de una niña con la que jugaba durante el curso de verano de computación; ella, por supuesto, jamás se volvió a acordar de mí. Fue entonces que descubrí a esta colombiana llamada Shakira, cuando, con el radio en mi cuarto, escuché por primera vez . Desde entonces comenzó esta tortuosa historia que ha contradecido mi inclinación por la música no-comercial y mis inevitables genes gay que, por algún motivo, me hicieron elegir a Shakira como la única popera de la que he comprado discos.

    Dónde están los ladrones Me dejó un buen sabor de boca, con tintes de rock y letras ricas en metáforas, música creativa, en fin…
