Editorial Review

While Irwin Winkler's bittersweet film constructs a touching allegory--Kevin Kline's character is diagnosed with terminal cancer and sets about both salvaging a relationship with his estranged son and building the house of his dreams--it's also the kind of story that requires a deft musical touch, one that embodies a sense of buoyant optimism even as it heads toward the dramatically inevitable. Alternating between vibrant, rhythmic passages carried largely by mallet instruments (and resembling a more structured take on similar Tom Newman cues) and the melancholy of his quietly effective writing for strings and solo piano, Mark Isham's score strikes an almost perfect emotional balance amid a minefield of potential bathos. It also fuses some of the composer's modern minimalist composing instincts and spacious sense of dynamics with the more traditionally pastoral, resulting in emotionally introspective music that is considerably more than the sum of its parts. --Jerry McCulley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars What a score!!
I saw the movie and it's one of my favourite ever, great story, great actors. But that's another story. When I read the previous reviews I was so sad none of the pop/rock songs of the movie were included in the Soundtrack. I then recorded these songs on my own and made an altrenative "Soundtrack". Both Sides Now, Rainy Day and the others: superb.
Anyway I took a chance to buy the Score CD through Amazon. Well, it is super as well. First of all, unlike the most of the movies' scores, the main title is not being repeated in all the tracks. There's a variety of melodies in this cd. Melodic, passional, funny, thoughtful, dramatic. The Orchestra support is magic as well, it gives the tracks a warm arrangement. I found it very good. Mark Isham really did a superb job. If you like relaxing music that's a great opportunity.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another fine Mark Isham score
Mark Isham can do little wrong; the score for Life as a House is another winner, though I wonder if he can ever top the haunting music from Mrs. Soffel (from the Film Music CD). So many have asked about the song Both Sides Now. The version in the film is indeed Joni Mitchell. It can be found on the 2004 CD Dreamland and the 2000 CD Both Sides Now.

5-0 out of 5 stars It was 2 a.m. in the morning and nothing was on except this
The emotions running through me right now are taking over my body. This movie. This picture of this family is so real. I loved Kline in this movie, he made this character come alive and you wanted more, you wanted him to live. This is up there with my all-time favorites. I'll never forget this film. It made me cry. It made me laugh and see the goodness of what people can be, what people are. And I loved the music, the bands. But most of all, I loved the score. It made me cry with every scene. There are just no words strong enough to say how much I loved this movie.... ... Read more

Editorial Review

Guster's formula is quite simple: Take time-tested harmonies à la Simon and Garfunkel or the Hollies, pour them over pleasant acoustic guitars, and add a pinch of congas for toe-tapping made easier. Lost and Gone Forever all but screams "radio friendly!" (especially with hit-producing wunderkind Steve Lillywhite at the knobs), but luckily the final product is more palatable than that.The musical plan is occasionally augmented by an electric guitar or strings, but generally follows harmonious sounds over articulate voices. Some people will listen to Lost and Gone Forever and find it too slight and completely corny, but others will fall under the spell of Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner's full-bodied vocal blend. --Jason Josephes ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Album!
This is the greatest CD I own and prabably always will be. It's so amazing that I've sat down and listened to it several times in a row without getting bored, because of all the great little riffs and melodies that I discover each time I listen to it.Everybody should own this, and you have to buy it!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars guster 4 life!
what can i say? i'm in love with these guys! they are part of the staples of my music collection, along with their buddies jump (formerly jump, little children), and then my saddle creek stuff. i do listen to a wide variety of music (and a lot of it), but i keep coming back to this trio of love! they are just a little ray of sunshine! "i spy" and "happier" are two of my favorite tracks on this album, although i feels it's sacrilegious to have to pick! i love every track on this album individually; i want to say this one is the best album, but "keep it together" is just so great... and then "medicine" is on "goldfly"...
if you enjoy a laid back rock band that prefers bongos to a traditional set, for a bit of hippie flair, add this jewel to you collection, today. i cannot imagine my music anthology without guster.
~i also recommend the live cd "guster on ice". on "i spy" they substitute "gay parade" for "may parade" and all sorts of hilarity like that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gob Goes Pop
It puts a smile on my face to think of all you 70's punk wannabes bi*chin and complainin' about "gob goin pop", and an even bigger grin to know that just last year, they released another pop-punk record with major label arista and toured with avril lavine. So before I go on, fans of "too late...no friends" and "how far shallow takes you" should LOOK ELSEWHERE.

Now as far as the album goes, my review title pretty much explains it all. The songs on "the world according to gob" are much more radio friendly than anything they've done before, and they have melodic, pop-sensiblilty in the vein of "enema era" blink or the current simple plan. Songs like "looking for california" and "144" showcase the true pop-punk talent this band had been hoping to convey since their formation, and each song carries a unique melody and chours different from the next. If you hated this band before because of their past releases, I suggest looking into "the world according to gob" anyway. It's got more hit singles than kiss fm, and alot of replay value too.

In my opinion, gob is pretty similar to blink 182 in their evolution. For example: blink started in 94' with the horrific "cheshire cat", gob started in 95' with the equally bad "too late...no friends". blink made a big recovery with "dude ranch" in 97', gob made a slight recovery with "how far shallow takes you" in 98. blink showed full potential and took punk to its poppiest with "enema of the state" in 99', gob completely revised their sound and took a full on pop approach with "the world accroding to gob" in 01'.

In short, fans of the newer blink 182 or simple plan will enjoy this album. In my opinion, there are only 2 gob albums worth having; The world according to gob and their newest major-label release foot in mouth.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Band
I never heard of this band until the warped tour and they are actually really good. My favorite song on this cd is I Hear You Calling. This cd is a catchy one with good songs for singing. If you like pop punk then u will enjoy this cd a lot

Editorial Review

Just as Korn spawned a plethora of like-minded brethren, the hit-making Canadian band Nickelback has produced their own offspring, which includes this talented Vancouver-based quartet. Nickelback's Chad Kroeger produced and cowrote many of the songs on this 11-song collection of tame if memorable and emotional midtempo rockers. "Wasting My Time" is at once familiar and soaring, as vocalist Dallas Smith, jangly guitars, and gentle melodies mesh to make this a poignant relationship song for fans who like their rock accessible but with an edge. Cooler and rawer are the forceful "Seize the Day," and the Pearl Jam-like "Slow Me Down." "Sick & Tired," too, has a musical tone that suits the angry lyrical perspective. --Katherine Turman ...

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm "Wasting My Time" Reviewing This
I'd write a review, but I'd be wasting what LINKEN_PARK_SUX wrote.

4-0 out of 5 stars A real rock album!They still make these?
Ohmigod!I was so so happy the other day when the batteries on my CD player died in my car and I was forced to listen to (NO!) the radio.I flipped to the "new rock" station (there were too many commercials playing on the ClearChannel infected classic rock station).I was shocked and amazed!It wasn't Godsmack (phew!) or Korn (Phee-ewww!!!) or somebody else trying their damndest to sound like them.It was a real honest-to-goodness guitar riff and a guy was like...singing to it!It was "Sick & Tired" by this new band called Default.Well, I tell ya what I immediately spun the wheel and headed to my local merchant o' music and grabbed this beauty of a CD right away!Nothing too fancy (which is fine by me) just good riff-and-hook oriented emo-rock, somewhere between Pearl Jam and Candlebox with obvious influence from Kroegger of Nickelback.

I don't know if something as unconventional as Normal Guitar Rock can survive today amongst the oh-I-hate-this-miserable-success-stuff bands, but here's to 'em for giving it a try!

1-0 out of 5 stars Mind-numbingly boring and predictable
"Wasting My Time", indeed. Bands like default are killing rock music. There is nothing interesting or unique in any of their songs, which all sound the same and any idiot could write in their sleep.

Default, Hoobastank, Linkin Park = not rock

Velvet Revolver, Monster Magnet, Stone Temple Pilots = rock ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If I see one more person comparing this to Skinny Puppy...
Now, to everyone going on a bitchfest about how this isn't "Skinny Puppy", GUESS WHAT? It's not! Go ahead, Read the cover. It says "oGhR!" I ABSOLUTELY ADMIRE Kevin Ogilvie for this project. That's right, folks, a project, NOT SKINNY PUPPY! That's like referring Cevin Key's side projects as Skinny Puppy. Sunnypsyop + WELT are both a breath of fresh air for the fans. This is not a permanent sound, yet a PROJECT. A VVEEERRRYY INTERESTING PROJECT. :) Take a listen... You won't be sorry. It's more than unique, DIFFERENT, upbeat and witty.


5-0 out of 5 stars BEST ALBUM. PERIOD.
I am an avid Skinny Puppy/OhGr fan, so it goes without saying that I would love it - but this album is genius! The best songs (if I have to pick a few) are Water, Minus and Earthworm.

You NEED this album if you like Industrial. ESSENTIAL.

5-0 out of 5 stars Killer album
Excellent industrial pop album, not quite like postal service... just better. I like sunnypsyop more but i guess its because i heard it first.

Editorial Review

Florida-bred metal-rappers Limp Bizkit sold a million-plus records of their debut largely on the strength of a George Michael cover song. But the band indeed had "Faith" and the group's second outing proves that the Bizkit have the goods. Still, it seems as if boastful frontman Fred Durst is loading the band's deck again, this time by including scads of guest vocalists, such as Stone Temple Pilots' singer Scott Weiland, Method Man from Wu-Tang Clan, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. (In fact, Korn gave Limp Bizkit a leg up in the industry.) But the 16 diverse yet cohesive tracks on Significant Other don't need any help. Not as heavy as their mentors Korn--or as they are on their debut--Bizkit give Everlast a run for his money on the tuneful and appealing "Rearranged." "Just Like This" is another winning hip-hop and rock entry, while the amusing and memorable "Nookie" (as in "I did it all for the nookie") has self-deprecating lyrics not unlike the Offspring's "Self-Esteem." Bizkit segues with ease from pleasing rock and hip-hop amalgam to spooky Tool territory on "Don't Go Off Wandering" to moshable moments in the entreaty "Show Me What You Got." Significant Other may be hard to categorize, but it's easy to like. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It's Even Worse Edited
This album sucks enough already, so why did the FCC (F**king Cornhole Clowns) decide to release an edited version of this poor excuse for music? The CD is mostly silent due to the amount of F-bombs erased. It's like listening to a white noise generator. It's just that terrible, especially with the sh*t song "Break Stuff", which sounds like a vinyl record with a bunch of scratches in it. Do yourself a favor. Do not support the band who paid a radio station to play their music. Do not support these TRL sellouts with no brains and no balls. Buy yourself a Body Count record instead. Ice-T knows how to rap, and I personally hate rap, but the old school stuff at least has some good names to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vintage Bizkit! This is the good stuff!
I like Limp Bizkit, I've liked them ever since this album. I didn't care for them that much on their first album because it seemed to repetitive. Bizkit is one of the real good rapcore bands. There are a few other good bands who have succeeded and been good like LB, like P.O.D. (Warriors!!!!) and Papa Roach and a couple more, these guys are great. I like this album alot especially the song "No Sex" it is the epitomy of Anti-Sex songs! Its funny too with a chorus like "Should have kept my pants on this time"! How can you not like it. The hits are old now and aren't worth listening to that much but the other tracks are better anyway. Anyone who misses when this was good music needs to click the helpful button. Also buy Chocolate Starfish and Hotdog Flavored Water which is just as good if only harder!

1-0 out of 5 stars Dont waste your money
This album is horrible, don't even bother listening to Limp Bizkit, because everything they make sounds teh same, and it's HORRIBLE!I suggest getting something like "Hotel California" or
some Bob Marley.Limp Bizkit is just another fabricated popular band who just cuss and make snide remarks thinking people will like it.That's where music has gone, it's turned from actual music to this techno [junk] with all its glamor and profanity.Limp Bizkit is another band we can do without. ...

Editorial Review

Deadsy's debut has been a long time coming. Regardless of media hype, this album has been on and off the shelves for the past six years. It's a wonder it's finally seeing the light of day. At the very least, Deadsy have come up with an interesting and intriguing style. Ambient gothic tones and keyboards are entwined with '80s-style synth pop to give them a retro sound, yet distorted guitars and programmed drums bring them up to date. Vocalist Elijah Blue, son of Cher and Greg Allman, has a droning monotone style that sounds like a cross between Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode and Peter Steele of Type O Negative. At times, it can be quite disturbing. Of the album highlights, the guitar-driven lead track, "The Key to Gramercy Park," is the most modern-rock radio-friendly of the bunch, followed by their unexpected reworking of the Rush chestnut "Tom Sawyer." "She Likes Big Words" is a light and poppy throwback to early-'80s snyth pop, while the atmospheric "Brand New Love" is as lovely as it is moody. Despite their interesting textures and melodies, Deadsy's songs can sound the same after awhile and may become tiresome to the average listener. --Gail Flug ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone
I really like this cd but I can definitely see why many people don't like it. You have to really pay attention while listening to this to get it. It has so many layers and it's the type of music where you hear something new in it everytime you listen. It's also one of those cds that I really like but can't explain why I like it so much. I can see exactly why people would call this repetitive and monotonous but you have to look further into it to get that thought out of your head. I can also see why people would call Deadsy an 80's rip off band. But I think they have just been highly influenced by 80's music and add plenty of new elements to their music. They are really unique to me personally and sound fresh. A lot of people think these guys are ripping off bands like Orgy meanwhile Deadsy has actually been around longer than them. They have just had many delays on this album coming out. The singer of Orgy even used to be in this band. In my opinion all these bands today like The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and others are ripping off Deadsy.

Well there's my two cents on this album and I think this music is definitely not for everyone and even I find it strange that I like it so listen at your own risk.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
Simple review: Commencement by Deadsy is not for everyone but I simply love this disc, not a bad track on it in my opinion!

I really enjoy the snyth and goth "undercore" sound, nice work!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I gave this cd 5 because it was the highest number available to give. If i could have given more I would. Commencement is one of the best cds I've bought in a while and Deadsy is one of the most original sounding bands out there. Listen to the lyrics and go to the DEADSY website it explains everything about them and why they are here making such great music. They arent like most bands just out making music to do it, they believe they are here for a purpose. And so do I. I love Deadsy and if I never found them I would never have found the key to grammercy park. See you all in the mansion world!" ... Read more

Editorial Review

Joni Mitchell has long dabbled in the jazz world, forging alliances with the likes of Charles Mingus, Jaco Pastorius, and Wayne Shorter, while incorporating elements of fusion into her more intrepid recordings. Both Sides Now, however, comes at jazz from a different angle than the experimental likes of Mingus and The Hissing of Summer Lawns. Here is Joni the chanteuse, tackling smoky standards such as "At Last," "Sometimes I'm Happy," and "Stormy Weather" in the embrace of lush pop arrangements that owe a debt to Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins, though some stray over the line from stately into staid. The focus here is on Mitchell the vocalist, and she displays a real commitment to the music. She has the chops and the smarts to tackle these staples, but at times she seems intimidated by their illustrious pedigrees. Two of Mitchell's own songs are revived here--"A Case of You" and the title track. The results are mixed: the former takes on a new weight while the latter seems adolescent in such mature company. Ultimately, Both Sides Now is more a valentine to classic pop by a woman who can--and should--be off making more touchstones of her own. --Steven Stolder ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Am I missing something here?
Don't get me wrong. I'm a huge Joni fan. Always have been. But this has got to be one of the worst albums out there. If you want to hear the jazz standards sung properly, get the real thing -- from vocalists like Ella, Billie, Lena, Diana Krall, Sarah Vaughan, Anita O'Day, Blossom Dearie, Cassandra Wilson, etc. etc. Ms. Mitchell doesn't have the pipes to belt out the standards like the pros. To make matters worse, the Musak Studio Orchestra torpedoes this thing and sends it to the bottom.

5-0 out of 5 stars fabulous gem
I am not a fan of big band, pop jazz etc - but I am a big Joni fan - through the years - starting with Song to a Seagull. The first time I listened to this I was a little put off - see above - not a big fan of this genre. I played it a few more times to give it a chance..... and now I rate it five stars. This is a great listen. Her mature voice is so wonderful. So lush so beautiful. Give this one a chance to grow on you. Simply gorgeous, I'm sure I'll be listening to this one for years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful covers of standards
One of the great benefits of having XM Radio is being able to listen to Jonathan Schwartz, playing the Great American Songbook standards so dear to the heart of one such as I pushing 50.In tuning into The Sunday Show recently, I got to the XM channel about five minutes before the show started.The last song before the show began was Joni Mitchell singing "Sometimes I'm Happy."That was enough to make me go out and buy the CD immediately.Finding out that Herbie Hancock was the one playing the piano solo on that track, and seeing that both he and Wayne Shorter contributed to the music made it all the better.Yes, it's lush, but the songs are well chosen and, as Larry Klein says in his notes, it's chronologically put together presenting the ups and downs of a relationship.Listen to "A Case of You" and "Both Sides Now" back to back with the originals and you'd think they were sung by two different people.I highly recommend this disc. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Song But...
I'm not ragging on Manson or anything, but just get Smells like Children and the Lunchbox Single instead.All these songs and more can be found on those EPs.If you just want Sweet Dreams, just download it.This single isn't worth your money because there isn't anything new on it that can't be found elsewhere.Great music but utterly pointless.

1. Sweet Dreams (Are made of These) - Smells like Children
2. Dance of the Dope Hats (Remix) - Smells like Children
3. Down in the Park - Lunchbox
4. Next Motherf****r (Remix) - Lunchbox

5-0 out of 5 stars Who Am I To Disagree?
The Eurythmics may have been the first (and best) to do this song, but Manson gives his cover the heart, rock, and originality where so many others fell short.

Though the song was perfect to begin, Manson twists it ever so gently to a rock anthem to scream along to. He takes it from the almost sentimental note in which it was originally produced and adds raw, passionate anger. An anger that only he could acheive.

Even if you hate the cover, buy this for the B-Sides that never were. It's well worth the money just for the underground tracks.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best of B-sides / 2 dance mixes / 2 slower covers
This is a best of B-sides for Marilyn Manson's Portrait of an American Family era (1994). It kicks off with Manson's mainstream hit, which is a cover of the Eurithmic's Sweet Dreams. Mr. Manson puts his own personal twist on it, as it churns heavy guitars and Manson's unmistakable lyrics. It then goes to the supercharged Dance of the Dopehats remix from Charlie Closure (Keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails). This version is so much better than its original song Dopehat, because it is quicker and has a nice beat that dances from start to finish, something that current Manson songs are missing now. The third track on the import comes from the Lunchbox single and it's a cover of Gary Numan's Down in the Park. This song was far ahead of its time and it even sounds like something you would find on the Mechanical Animals album. It's a slower song, but not a bad song! Finally is Chris Vrenna's version of Lunch Box that also appears on the Lunchbox single. It is an amazing remix that received more radio play than the original song and features loud banging drums with Manson's raging vocals. ... Read more

How is it that Kid A's opening track, laden with an electronic vocal stuttering "bleh, bluh-bleh bleh bluh" is the most fascinating statement made in rock & roll this year? Because somehow, even when Radiohead blathers and blips nonsense, it's profound. The band's future-perfect musical grammar may be hard to decipher, and the melody is even more subliminal, but the journey traveled with Radiohead reveals them to be not only rock music's greatest adventurers in 2000, but teachers as well.--Beth Massa ...

Minimalist. Sophisticated. Clean sounding. Lack of emotion-the thing of which i love so much about Radiohead.U really have to know the story to know what its all about, to enjoy the album.

Its not easy to listen either but i have to be very optimistic cause all the songs, seems like everything in its right place. takes time for it to grows on you. And now i cant stop playing it. Thom sings as if he wants to be a robot, a machine, a ghost sometimes. Not a fun album.Perhaps radiohead's most serious album.Is this a work of a genius? I dunno. I just cant stop playing it.When i reach home after days job, i think this album first to be played at home and the first one too at the morning bell.W. Axl Rose likes this album so much he danced salsa to the tune of National Anthem in limbo......just kidding, and thats what this album's been missing. humour. But who needs humour when the centre story is about a genetic (?) kid A.I wish i could stop playing this but i just cant make it dissapear completely.But dont be an idiotique,listen to this on headphone if u cant 'get' it.This could be your own soundtrack of your own life's motion picture.

I dont mention the Tressfinger cause i'm not sure if I really like that song.

First time I listened to this ablum I hated it. Absolutely hated it. I wanted to break the cd. I listened to it again and started to like it. I really started to feel the music. 5 years later this is my favorite album ever. Radiohead is not my favorite band, but this cd really does something to me. The music is really like nothing else. I honestly can not describe in words the type of comfort and ease this album gives me. I cant expect everyone to like this album, but its worth a listen. If I were stuck on a desert island and I could only have one possession it would be Kid A. No contest. I cant recommend this album enough. It's beautiful...

Awesome, at first i didnt get into this album but then when u lie down and close your eyes its takes you on a journey.
