Editorial Review

Creed burst out of Florida with 1997's My Own Prison, a dark but commercial debut reminiscent of the early-'90s Seattle sound. Creed's moody guitar grunge and ardent lyrics, coupled with singer Scott Stapp's passionate vocals, helped My Own Prison sell millions. Human Clay demonstrates that this likable quartet hasn't messed with success; they turn in a sophomore outing rife with evocative moodiness, soaring guitars, and a dark, roiling, intense vibe. "Beautiful" is but one of the winners on this strong 11-song CD. Haunting and indeed beautiful, the track is more delicate and seductive than most heard here, as is another lilting and mysterious entry, "Never Die," which boasts some Middle Eastern accents. "Higher" is typical Creed--safe, emotive guitar rock for the masses, but with a slight edge. Memorable hooks, Soundgarden-like guitars, and Vedder-like vocals make Human Clay at once compelling and effectively redundant. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't age very well...
When creed first were getting popularity I grabbed their first cd and listened to it a good bit. it had a lot going for it in the form of nice melodic guitar rock with well done vocals which are lacking in most rock bands today. the second album, Human clay is more of the same and while at first that seems a good thing it quickly turns out not to be as much of a positive as you would think. there's nothing wrong with this cd really, it has a lot of catchy rock tracks, good production, nice cover art etc. The problem i have with it lies in the lack of repeat listen value. The entire cd as well as the first is very similar, without a lot of diversity in the tracks. You get some here and there but not enough to make this an album you'd want to listen to on a regular basis for an extended period of time before boredom kicks in. That's just my opinion though...:)

2-0 out of 5 stars Two great songs wrapped around a bunch of filler
I do like Creed, though many people have endlessly dissed them. Though the Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Stone Temple Pilots comparisons are obviously there, I do feel that the band has potential to created their own sound. Their first album, My Own Prison, dealt with Scott Stapp's childhood and adolescence in a highly religious family; the album contained a number of good songs. Their third and best CD, Weathered, shows maturity and range, much like the 1990's version of Metallica. Now comes the second and worst of the three albums, Human Clay. This album is downright unlistenable, with the exception of two songs, the singles Higher and With Arms Wide Open(GREAT bass work on both songs by Brian Marshall). For their next album, I hope they decide to take it to the next level, and not stay in mediocrity. Peace.

3-0 out of 5 stars Human Clay
Creed's Human Clay starts off good,with even quite a few enjoyable songs, but after a while they all start to sound the same. Human Clay is still a good album though with Higher, Beatiful, and With Arms Wide Open, as highlights of the album. Pretty enjoyable for the right price. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The Mississippi-based quartet 3 Doors Down has only one thing that sets them apart from other hard rock bands: lead vocalist Brad Arnold is also the drummer. The group shops the sounds of Pearl Jam and the Goo Goo Dolls, pointing at what they like, picking it off the shelf, and throwing it into the stew.While the music on The Better Life, their debut, sounds overall both competent and confident, the songs themselves are equally uninspired and clichéd.For example, the riff from the track "Loser" is straight out of the Alice in Chains songbook, adding much more cringe-worthy lyrics ("Addiction needs a pacifier, the buzz of this poison is taking me higher").In fact, most of the lyrics zero in on well-worn rockthemes of aggravation, confusion, and frustration, feelings that 3 Doors Down will easily coax out of discriminating listeners. --Jason Josephes ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Glad I wasn't so "Lucky"
I wondered aimlessly down the aisles of cds searching for that right cd to spend the rest of my gift certificate on. I had narrowed down my choice to Britney Spears. Although I wasn't really big on the whole pop scene, that darn "Lucky" song was trapped in my head. Well I decided to go over the aisles once more just to make sure...then I saw the 3 Doors Down Cd. "Ok," I thought, "aren't they the ones that sing Kryptonite?" I liked that song and although I hate buying cd's for just one song I dropped the Britney Cd and grabbed the 3DD cd and checked out.

Of course the first few days I did nothing but listen to "Kryptonite" but when I finally decided to listen to all of the cd, a thing which I rarely do, I was surprised. I couldn't believe someone wrote these songs about how I sometimes felt. Aside from "Kryptonite" there's "Loser" "Be Like That" (which I totally love!) and "Duck and Run".

I was taken aback by the lyrics and rhythms that I vowed to see them in concert. And on Tuesday OCt. 17 I did just that. If you love the Cd wait till you see these guys in concert! They totally rocked! That was the best concert ever! But back to the Cd...if you've ever had emotions of sadness, wonder and dispair you are not alone...but they do not sing the typical "oh poor me, the world sucks" kinda songs..."Duck and Run" offers hope and inspiration with lyric such as "this world can turn me down but I won't turn away,and I won't duck and run because I'm not built that way."

The cd is of all emotions and offers hope and is truly lyrically, musically, and inspirationally, the BEST Cd I have ever heard and they are also the BEST band I have ever heard. Oh and it doesn't hurt that they're from down south either.

3 Doors Down ROCKS!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh hell yeah!
Of course, following my alternative rock instinct I downloaded (and later bought) this cd. Expecting mediocre, this cd really got my attention. From the punky-edge of "Krytonite" to the more mellow toned down "Down Poison" and if great hits such as "Kryptonite" and "Loser" aren't enough in themselfs to convince you to buy "The Better Life" maybe this review will.

1. Kryptonite: Even though I'm not too fond of the radio version (with a slowed down chorus most notably) the cd version has the same upbeat guitars as the rest of the cd but a great punk vibe added to the mix. 2. Loser: An all around great song, my favorite on the cd. Brad Arnold really shows off his vocal capability's in this song. 3. Duck And Run: A very angry song, has a tad of heavyness to it. This song will still be one of the most played on the cd by me. I even stole a little quote out of it for my IRC quit message. 4. Not Enough: I love the perfect colabiration between the guitars and vocals on this. The guitars don't follow the tone of the vocals but the speed hits it perfectly, you don't always see bands pull that off this great. 5. Be Like That: A slow, yet satisfying song. An average song, but definatly a nice addition to the cd. So the whole cd isn't perfect, but no cd to this date is. 6. Life Of My Own: An emotional rollercoaster of a song, I think if i tried to quote this song for IRC the whole song would end up in it. Lyirically the best on the cd by a longshot. 7. Better Life: Jam it baby, yeah! I love this guitar riff. very groovy, baby! (I'm in an Austin Powers mood). 8. Down Poison: I'm voting for this one to be the next single. Just an outright great song. 9. By My Side: Another mediocre song. I like it, but it just doesn't compare to the rest of the cd. I guess I just now have high expectations from 3 Doors Down. 10. Smack: Probably the worst song on the cd, less than satisfactory work especially from this band. 11. So I Need You: More or less a good song. It seems to be a good ending song. Single worthy? Probably not, but hey it's still good.

With that being said, I would recommend this cd to anyone. A great cd, and I can't wait for 3 Doors Down's next one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the best music I've ever heard!
Evan and Jaron is quite possibly the best CD ever published! This guys can really sing, and at least one of them wrote every song on the album! Some really good songs are On The Bus because it has great lyrics and a cool beat, Pick Up The Phone because it has cool lyrics, and You Don't Know Me because it has a fun beat and cool music. But my personal favorite is Crazy For This Girl because it has a great beat, excellent lyrics, and neat music! The music video was also very good. All of the songs on this CD were terrific in many ways. There aren't many CDs on which all the songs are great, and Evan and Jaron play their part by doing excellent songwriting, singing, and playing instruments. I am looking forward very much to their next release and I recommend this CD to everybody! You'll love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Complete Package
I admitt it. I don't buy too many CD's. I had heard "Crazy for This Girl" and thought it was alright, so I risked the trip to the CD store to buy the album.

I was pleasantly surprised when I slipped the CD into the CD player. These brothers know how to write music.

Overall, the album is fantastic. "On the Bus" has some of my favorite lyrics; "Ready or Not" is upbeat is very interesting, musically; I also find myself playing "Pick up the Phone" and "Wouldn't it be Nice to be Proud" especially often

Evan and Jaron's self-titled album is a wonderful, complete package. It's an album that I never tire of.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Debut From These Twins
When I first heard "Crazy For This Girl" on the radio, I thought of it as a pleasant pop hit and thought nothing more of it. One day at the cd shop, I saw the album at a good price and decided to pick it up. I am very pleased that I purchased this cd. The twins are soulful in their lyrics and captivate their fans with catchy hooks and strong bridges.

Standouts on the cd include the hit "Crazy For This Girl" as well as "Done Hangin' On Maybe," "Distance," "Pick Up The Phone," and "From My Head To My Heart."

If You are a fan of John Mayer or matchbox twenty, you will definitely like this cd. It was a pleasant surprise for me and could be as well for you if you pick up this album. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Ever heard of a Trinidadian dish called pelau? Well, mix anytype of food you can get your hands on: chicken, rice, onions,tomatoes... Stir all of these disparate parts up in a pot and enjoy.The Baha Men are Bahamians, not Trinidadians, but they utilize thisformula to create their unique brand of music. With its catchy "Woof!woof! woof!" chorus, the self-titled single will make you feel "Hot,Hot, Hot" like Arrow. Socaconnoisseurs might find it a bit disturbing that the Baha Men chose tocover this dated carnival anthem of 1998 (originally recorded byTrinidadian Anslem Douglas), but bounce-music audiences won't mind.Although none of the other tracks quite match that song's intensity,there are a good handful ("You All Dat," "Shake It Mamma," "You'reMine") that successfully mesh the popular music styles of the day (R&B,rap, pop) with the percussive junkanoo rhythms of the Bahamas. Theelectronic beats on "Summer of Love" and "You Can Get It" don't matchtheir organic island flows, and the lone ballad "Where Did I Go Wrong"doesn't fit in with the general feel-good mood of the album, but thisCD is filled with decent up-tempo party music for hot festival nights. --Dalton Higgins ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This Ain't American Style (That's Why It Rocks)!
Geez, People, when will you realize that you should not think of them as one hit wonders? On this album, the title track isn't even the best song. That honor goes to song three, a track alot of you may remember from the talent show scene from "Miss Congeniality". The song works perfectly for that part, and the track itself should be considered one of the best bahaman party songs of madern music. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese! Realize that they are not trying to go by American pop/rock/rap style music, they have a style all their own from their home country.

They have already exhibited pure musical talent in the song from "Shrek", "Best Days Of Our Lives" which recieved absolutely NO radio airplay. That is absolutely crazy!

This album is a favorite to almost everyone at my school (except the teachers), and brought me to meet many friends. This is a great CD that should be bought by everyone.

2-0 out of 5 stars One Hit Wonder?
It is probably just me, but I bought this CD for the title track and have never made it through the whole thing try as I might over several months.

Previous reviewers have knocked the song "Who the Dogs Out?" - but I find it quite infectious even having heard the chorus shouted over and over after every goal at my granddaughter's soccer games. What convinced me to buy the CD (I am hesitant to admit) was the commercial Apple ran last year to promote the iBook. The ad did not persuade me to buy the computer, but in answer to the guy in the center seat I said to myself - 'Yeah, I do like those guys.'

However, for me, one song does not make a CD and I am very unimpressed with the rest of the tunes on this one as they are of a fairly different nature. Next time I will have to pay more attention.

1-0 out of 5 stars Who let these dudes out?!
The Baha Men, I'm sorry to say, is one of the most ridiculous bands out there right now, along with *N SYNC. "Who Let The Dogs Out?" is one of the most annoying songs I've ever heard. "You All Dat" is actually an okay and slightly catchy song, but the rest are a terrible disgrace to popular music. Yes, I know they are trying to spread the music of the Bahamas or something but please...for your next album guys, write INTELLIGENT music! Who gaves these guys a record deal, anyway? I highly suggest that you stay clear of this album...for your own sake! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright ...

1-0 out of 5 stars The poster boys for the death of real music
What can I say about these five goonballs. These guys are just a disgrace to music and life in general. The only reason these dorky poseurs made it big was because of The Backstreet Boys(although I ain't a fan of the Backstreets, I have respect for them and were much better singers) and I saw these clowns as fools riding on the coattails of the BSB. The songs on here were moronic too "Bye Bye Bye" should have been called "Die Die Die", "It's Gonna Be Me" with Justa Lumberstream sounding like his ex Britney when he sings made me sick and the song with Left Eye made me wanna vomit(well that was one good thing about 2002 and I don't mean to be cold but I was happy when Left Eye passed away, she was a disgrace to music unlike Layne Staley whom was a real artist and should not have been ignored when he passed on). I thought Styx wrote a song about fools like N Stink called Mr Roboto on their Kilroy Was Here album. I urge you to pick Kilroy up, buy anything from Rush or Pink Floyd. Outta Sync will be outta style and already are except for Lumberstream who is now a Michael Jackson wannabe.

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS A GOOD *NSYNC ALBUM
THIS IS A SECOND GOOD *NSYNC 5 STARS ALBUM. THERE'S FIRST ONE SOUND LIKE A CLASSIC ONE.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best N*Sync album of the three.....
The summer of 2000 was a good summer for poppy-lite-frothy music. N*Sync's contribution was nothing less than that. Could we really expect more? However, this album is very listenable....and perhaps the best of the three mainstream albums by this band. One of the things I really like about the disc is the fact that most of these songs are fast! They are a boy band.....who needs ballads! We want to get up and dance while dissing boyfriends or singing about just getting paid! The ballads on the album are okay, but the dance numbers are much better. The next CD, Celebrity, just didn't match up to this. This is boy band music at it's height. If you want to get to know N*Sync a little better, then buy this album! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Yes, she did. Even if the title track's chorus is a blatant rip-off of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet, "Woman in Love," it's still darn catchy--much more than anything from 1999's ...Baby One More Time (save the album's fab title tune, of course). With the rest of the 12 songs here, the teen queen pretty much delivers a remake of her last album. Songs like "What U See (Is What U Get)" and "Stronger" show Swedish songwriter-producer Max Martin in his element, churning out another and yet another slick smash with staccato synth beats and heavily overproduced melodies. But even at his strongest points, he can't bury Britney's voice far enough below the virtual guitars--and it's obvious this girl ain't no Celine. Except for the horrendous ballads, however, that doesn't make a stitch of a difference. The pop songs have all the qualities of memorable tunes--the choruses are clear and catchy, the beats are bouncy enough to make you shake your bonbon, and the singer is about as randy for love as Austin Powers is for a shag. Edit out the low-water mark--when Britney mutilates the Rolling Stones' misogynist anthem, "Satisfaction," by oversexualizing it with inserted "uh"s ("I can't get no, uh, satisfaction")--and you've got a hit-packed album that's as guilty a pleasure as reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. --Heidi Sherman ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Perfect accompaniment to a night of "Dawson's Creek"
Riding on the title track's success Britney's second album, although carrying a lot of similarities to her first, is a good effort for the young starlet. The first half of the album is pure pop indulgence, candy for weaker listeners and teenybopper garbage for the others. There's no doubt that Britney has talent, and her catchy singles "Stronger", "Don't go knocking on my door", "Don't let me be the last to know", "What you see is what you get" and "Lucky" contain all the peppy ingredients of hits, that will definitely be appreciated by Britney fans. Even those who denounce the pop princess will find themselves tapping their toes and shaking those shoulders to "Stronger." This single is by far the album's best, the melody is slightly different, and the lyrics are appropriate for all ages, setting up a more diverse audience for Britney. Unfortunately one cannot say the same about the rest of the album.

Britney Spears has a sexy image of a woman, but her songs set her up to be the little girl who danced in a school uniform to "Baby one more time". After listening to more of the songs, very little variance is discovered in the melody and in the lyrics. She, or her writers, simply do not want to portray her as a woman of too much experience, but fans will be disappointed by the bland stereotypical girl's thoughts drawn out in "One Kiss from you", "You got it all" and "When your eyes say it all". "Dear Diary", the singer's first writing effort is sweet as sugar, but after listening to five similar ballads, I am doubtful listeners will get to the final track. "Girl in the Mirror" had a good idea behind it, but it simply was not orchestrated properly.

Britney's lack of vocal range is obvious, which is why she should stick to peppy dance tunes, rather than long ballads that could be handled better by more skilled youngsters such as Christina Aguleira and the very talented Jessica Simpson (but hey - wasn't that obvious to everyone at the American Music Awards this year). "Don't let me be the last to know" is the only slow song she carries off with success. Britney should also stick to her own tunes, rather than trying to cover hits of the past. "Satisfaction" is a reasonable cover but far too repetitive without the original 'oomph' of Mick Jagger, and besides, why can she get no satisfaction? She loves hanging out with her friends, having crushes on boys and writing in her diary about them - once more Britney is torn between the woman and the girl. Once she can decide which one she wants to be, I feel she will release a much more 'satisfying' album for her fans. However if you listen to Britney's vocals interludes in which she trades details with girlfriends about the men in her life, I mean boys - sorry, or her oh-so-cute answering machine message, you will see 'Brit' as her friends call her, for who she really is. A girl having fun, once you can see this her album becomes enjoyable provided you stick with the catchy tracks at the beginning, as opposed to irritating as it can be on first impression. Her producers should have trashed the extra five songs, making an album of ten a lot more pleasing to the ears and the mind.

4-0 out of 5 stars Isn't she lucky? (not so much but hey)
ok. this cd was surprisingly good..i mean.. maybe i was drunk or my hearing was impaired on the day i listened to the cd. but my reaction was 'interesting!'. i mean it didn't suck. compared to some other pop cds *coughhilaryduffcough*.
her lyrical content is getting better compared to the 1st album.
Some of the songs actually have a meaning.
not to mention the vocals aren't bad.
well i don't expect them to be since its computer generated but hey. you know what i mean.

so if you are looking for a pop cd that is all perky and kinda meaningful yet touching in a messed up way. this cd is for you

if you are looking for a seriously bad pop cd. don't look here.

every teenybopper should own this cd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oops!...I Did It Again
"Oops!...I Did It Again" is another Britney album by Britney Spears! The tracks on here, are quite different from her first debut, "...Baby One More Time"!

01) "Oops!...I Did It Again"- Oops!...This song is so cool!

02) "Stronger"- I can't help feeling as if this song is a sequel to "...Baby One More Time".

03) "Dont Go Knockin' On My Door"- A hip-hop vibe to this song, is just the kind of thing that makes this song on this album, great.

04) "(Can't Get No) Satisfaction"- A remake of the Rolling Stones song.

05) "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know"- A romantic kind of song that is nice and slow. Really good.

06) "What U See (Is What U Get)"- A pop music kind of vibe, and is abosolutely a good song.

07) "Lucky"- My most favorite song on this album of all time!!! I just ABSOLUTELY love this song, totally!!! This song is my #1 favorite on this album! It's so cute and so sweet!

08) "One Kiss From You"- I love this song. This song is sweet and wonderful, kind of like the song, "Lucky", and this song is terrific pop song!

09) "Where Are You Now"- This song is alright. It's slow, it's nice, not a filler, but it's just alright.

10) "Can't Make You Love Me"- A pop song that sounds good and powerful. I love the beats!

11) "When Your Eyes Say It"- Cute pop song that's romantic and lovely.

12) "Dear Diary"- A good song to end this album.

Good album! ... Read more

Animated action requires music that moves in supernatural fashion as well. Smash Mouth's "All Star" seems even more appropriately defined in this context as the theme song and rallying cry for these psychotically staring superheroes. Other established hits, such as Fatboy Slim's "The Rockafeller Skank" (here in a short edit) and Barenaked Ladies' "One Week," make this a compendium of hits from the end of the millennium. Len's reinterpretation of Kim Wilde's "Kids in America" updates it for the new century as well. Also here are songs written specifically for the show. "Digi Rap" and "Hey Digimon" are two tracks destined for the novelty bins as curious period pieces. The album comes with several pages of artwork and listings for--what else?--more Digimon merchandise. --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

4. Kids in America ~ Len 5/5 This is also a really good song. It has a cool beat.

5. Hey Digimon ~ Paul Gordon 4/5 This song is pretty good too. You can hear it on the Season 1 digimon shows. (Most of the shows at least)

6. One Week ~ Barenaked Ladies 5/5 This is an awsome song too. It has awesome lyrics and a cool beat. (Chickety China The Chinese Chicken)

7. The Impression That I Get ~ The Mighty Mighty Bosstones 5/5 This is also a cool song. It has an awesome beat.

8. All My Best Friends Are Metalheads ~ Less Than Jake 5/5 This song is also really good.

9. Run Around ~ Jason Radford 5/5 This is an awesome song too! It has a great beat and awesome lyrics. (You can also hear this song by watching Season 2 of Digimon)

10. Nowhere Near ~ Summer Camp 5/5 I can explain this song in one word: AWESOME!

11. Spill ~ Showoff 5/5 This is a very very very very very very (Think I've said very enough?) cool song!

12. Here We Go ~ Jason Gochin 5/5 This song rocks!

Editorial Review

On the wings of the hit club single "Blue (Da Ba Dee)," the Italian group Eiffel 65's Europop has soared into the ever-fleeting good graces of the dance-pop scene. The song is "a story about a little guy who lives in a blue world," and while it seems that the color of the fella's life was chosen arbitrarily, the real star of this tune is the vocoder effect reintroduced on Cher's megahit single "Believe." Listen to the entire record, though, and you'll hear this gimmick on almost all of the rest of the tracks as well. On first run-through, the one-trick-pony-ness of this effect is off-putting, and yet it is the album's one distinctive element. The songs on Europop live up to the album's broad moniker, skimming the basics of tried-and-true dance-pop ("Living in a Bubble," "Now Is Forever"), techno ("Dub in Life," "Another Race"), and acid house ("Europop"). The group even renders a fairly accurate impression of Depeche Mode-style goth-pop ("Your Clown"). But the tracks rarely deviate from a four-on-the-floor thud, numbing the ears to the songs' otherwise distinguishable qualities. The record is too hard to swallow in one bite; its tracks are much tastier as singles, serving well in a club setting as segues to stronger songs by other artists. --Beth Massa ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Music like this is hard to find!
Only heard Blue and wonder if this album is any good? Euro-dance-synth-pop fanatic thinking of adding to your collection but are questioning after a bad runin with ATC? Well here's my review.

1. Blue (Da Ba Dee) -I KNOW you've heard this on the radio. ain't it great? =) it's quite an upbeat song about depression
2. Too Much Of Heaven - i like this song 2nd best after blue probably and i like the lyrics, too =)
3. Dub In Life - pretty good i guess
4. Living In A Bubble - this one's really cool! has a little reggae break and I love the vocal job
5. Move Your Body - their 2nd U.S. single didn't do as well, but it's still great! American's don't know what's good, do they?
6. My Console - this IS SO FUNNY! all the playstation fans will like this one i swear! =)
7. Your Clown - i didn't like this at first, but it grows on ya
8. Another Race - same here it's okay too - i've hardly ever listened to the cd pas here, not because it's bad because i never have the time!
9. The Edge
10. Now Is Forever
11. Silicon World - i don't really get the lyrics, but i've had it stuck in my head
12. Europop - for title track, i woulda thought it'd be better, but maybe it's just not my thing
13. Hyperlink (Deep Down) - had heard this one before i got the cd and it's great with cute lyrics =) for computer geeks! [me]
14. Blue (Da Ba Dee) Extended Mix - filler track it's just extended...not any different or anything from the original

Overall I thought the CD was good...as for the ones that didn't really catch my ear, I thought those could have been better, and maybe since there was so much empty space, some other songs, like maybe All I Really Want (feat. Kim Lukas) or a remix of Blue or two could made it a full 80 minutes. But it'sgood, and not a bad buy it. At Amazon.com's price. =) Good cheesy eurodance is not too easy to get in the U.S., and despite the mainstreamness of this one, it's actually quite catchy!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Feeling Blue? listen to this cd

3-0 out of 5 stars "Blue (da ba dee)", x 14
I wont say that if you've heard one song here, that you've heard them all, but each one follows the same formula. It's pretty much vocal effects, over synthesizer, over dance beats, repeat. But, the good news is that it's extremely catchy, and good in small doses. Some of the better tracks are "Move Your Body", "Living In A Bubble", "Now Is Forever", and my favorite "Too Much Of Heaven". Of course the big hit here "Blue (da ba dee)", has got to be one of the biggest guilty pleasures since "Wannabe". Overall, it's simple fun dancefloor bubblegum pop, that you'll love until you hate. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Toy-Box Fantastic
Well we have Toy-Box to follow in the footsteps of where Aquarium left off. FanTastic captures all the metaphors, nonsense lyrics, and great beats that once was Aqua. I kept playing this album 'til it became seriously messed up, and I couldn't even see the video or play the game anymore. The videos are for Tarzan & Jane and Best Friend. The game (Space Trap) is really obsessive. It's similar to the old Donkey Kong games where you rescued the princess at the top of the ladders. Hopefully Toy-Box keeps this music style in upcoming albums. This is a definite recommendation for the Europop fans. 1. Toy Box Pictures Presents - Talk about dramatic. Cool intro. You can see they're going all Apollo. 2. The Sailor-Song - Lovin' the background beats. Can't disagree with the lyrics. Excellent song. 3. Best Friend - #1. Without a doubt, this is Europop at its best. Completely pointless, nonsense lyrics and you'll be wondering why you're listening to it. Then you realize this song is just plain fun and I know you'll like it. 4. Tarzan & Jane - The video for this is what made me notice Toy-Box in the first place. Great song. 5. E.T. - This song scared me away from Toy-Box temporarily. Some person said it reminded them of Yankee Doodle. True, but also... Well I thought of Barney (the dinosaur) first and that is scary! Once I got over my fright, I heard this song in full and found it to be pretty good. 6. Teddybear - First slow song of Toy-Box's. I like it, mostly because of the lyrics. "Kiss me here and kiss me there (Oh yea)...." ;-) 7. Super-Duper Man - Cool start up music. The lyrics are nothing to get excited over. Then again.... Beware of the sexual metaphors. Great song. 8. I Believe In You - Not exactly slow. Not exactly fast. The background music in this song sounded familiar; don't know why. Great song. The lyrics are actually decent. 9. Earth, Wind, Water & Fire - Hello, Wiccas. Here's your song. No, wait a minute, Toy-Box forgot the element for Spirit. And it also has nothing to do with the supernatural. Beware those sexual metaphors again. This song is still cool. 10. What About - Similar to track 8. I really don't see the point in this song though. 11. Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo - Anila is just hyper in this song. Great chorus. Great song. 12. A Thing Called Love - Good song but I think it would sound better as a Remix. 13. Sayonara (Goodbye) - It can't end! Hurry up with the new album Toy-Box, and make sure it's like the first one.

5-0 out of 5 stars FanTastic=Aquarium?
Who knows? Maybe Aqua really did influence Toy-Box. But as it is, Aqua lost some of their silly ways when they came out with their new album (Just hear the title track Aquarius). Well we've got Toy-Box to follow in the footsteps of where Aquarium left off. FanTastic captures all the metaphors, nonsense lyrics, and great beats that once was Aqua. I played this album 'til it became seriously messed up, and I couldn't even see the video or play the game anymore. Had to get me a new copy. The videos are for Tarzan & Jane and Best Friend. The game (Space Trap) is obsessive. It's similar to the old Donkey Kong games where you rescued the princess at the top of the ladders. Hopefully Toy-Box keeps this music style in upcoming albums. This is a definite recommendation for the Europop fans.

1. Toy Box Pictures Presents - Here's Toy-Box establishing their trademark space-themed sound. This track's mostly narration. Very Appolo.
2. The Sailor-Song - The lyrics are irresistible. ;) The start up music is great with a real thunderstorm background. Killer beats make it a great dance song too.
3. Best Friend - Without a doubt this is Europop at its best. On your first listen you'd think, "What is this?!" The lyrics are outrageous, 'specially in the chorus. The beats are great again, and the "clap, clap" used adds their own pace to it.
4. Tarzan & Jane - The video for this is what made me first notice Toy-Box. In '99 I was sitting on my couch when it came on The Box. The Oo-ee-oo-ee...'s MAKE this song. It adds an almost tribal feel to the whole track.
5. E.T. - This song scared me away from Toy-Box temporarily. Some person said it reminded them of Yankee Doodle. True but also...Barney (the dinosaur). Once I got over my fright I heard it in full and found it to be good though. It plays on the space-themed sound again and the E.T. voice is original.
6. Teddybear - A Toy-Box ballad? Not quite. This is more of a slow jam. Heh, suggestive song. "Kiss me here, and kiss me there..." (Oh yea)
7. Super-Duper Man - The start up music is HOTT. It really does make you think you're in the air. Those lyrics...whoa. Anila and Amir might've gotten a little carried away. =)
8. I Believe In You - The pacing on this track is exxxcellent. Not too fast, not too slow. It makes you wanna get up and dance. For once the lyrics make perfect sense and I can relate.
9. Earth, Wind, Water & Fire - Hey Wiccas. Here's your song. Nah, wait a minute. Toy-Box forgot the element for Spirit. It also has nothing to do with the supernatural. Man, I understand exactly what Amir is saying on this track.
10. What About - Similar to track 8. It might not hit you on the first listen, but after a while those lyrics start to sink in. When it does you'll realize they make this track almost hypnotic.
11. Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo - This song is bouncing. Grrreat. Around timeplay 2:45 the beats really snag you. It's a good thing they were used more than once.
12. A Thing Called Love - Anila's getting her freak on in this track. She sound mad hyper and drunk. It must be from all that Piña Colada. Word. Her 'party-filled mood on the beach' rubs off on you. "Yeehaw!!"
13. Sayonara (Goodbye) - Dang, this is over too soon. Out of all the tracks, I'd consider this the only real Techno one. Listen to those beats. Might sound odd but they do capture that goodbye mood. Depressing. Hurry up with the new album, Toy-Box.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic? Definately...
Ok so call me silly, but I enjoy hearing the childish songs of Aqua and ToyBox alike. After Aqua died out I would sit and wonder when someone would be silly enough to continue the 'willy nilly' style music. I found the FanTastic CD after I heard Tarzan and Jane... I was happy as a clam. The music on this CD are great for those of you who enjoy the synth pop type music with lyrics that really dont make any sense at all. Talented ANila and Amir made a great CD and I recomend it to all who enjoyed Aqua. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It may be too cynical to assume Hybrid Theory changed its name to Linkin Park in order to appear right next to Limp Bizkit in your local record bin. But rock-rap workouts like "One Step Closer" and "Papercut" do make Linkin Park a comfortable fit with Fred Durst and his ilk. Producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Lit, Eve 6) and twin vocal threats Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda serve up industrial-strength rap and rock melodicism with equal aplomb on this woulda-been-self-titled debut effort. "Points of Authority" aims to sound like Trent Reznor wanking it up with Lars and company, whereas guitarist Brad Delson's Edge-y harmonics help "In the End" and "Pushing Me Away" evoke a dark romanticism akin to A Perfect Circle. Curiously, the band gets by with no bass player, while sample-happy DJ Joseph Hahn's step into the spotlight on the instrumental "Cure for the Itch" suggests a potential for eclecticism that could help Linkin Park outlive its seemingly transient genre. --Bill Forman ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great and worth all the money!
I heard "One Step Closer" on the radio after i bought this CD. I actually had never played it, but now I play it so much that the bottom is scratched all over! It still plays. Well anyway, the album is very very good for nu-metal fans. The songs are rated below:

#1: Papercut: Intense start, emotional finish, rapped throughout. A great song, powerful intro. (9/10)

#2: One Step Closer: The hardest song on the CD. Free of rapping. Very intense; the second best on the CD. (10/10)

#3: With You: Very rythmatic, with a lot of beats and scratching in the background. Nice song. (8/10)

#4: Points of Authority: No raps except the beginning and the 2:15 mark. Great work. (9/10)

#5: Crawling: Awesome work, I think its about some mental patient. 3rd best. (10/10)

#6: Runaway: Not very good for their standard, but still a good song; all about betrayal. Nice. (7/10)

#7: By Myself: A sleepy rap, nice job, with what seems like a crash in the background (9/10)

#8: In the End: DEFINITELY THE BEST!!! One of the best nu-metal songs ever. Rapped and rocked in various spots. (10/10)

#9: A Place For My Head: Mostly rapped, very rapid fire style, about being used by people. (8/10)

#10: Forgotten: A hard rap about tough times. (9/10)

#11: Cure for the Itch: Record sampling all about rythyms and beats. No singing, just the DJ at work. (8/10)

#12: Pushing Me Away: Lighter rock, only a little rapping.
This is the 4th best. (10/10)

This was an awesome CD that you just don't want to stop playing. If you even remotely like to listen to rock or nu-metal, this is the Cd that will get you listening all the time. It is a great album and worth every last penny you pay for it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Linkin Park's 'Hybrid Theory' Is Revolutionary
Linkin Park is revolutionizing today's rock genre. Successfully blending rap, metal, rock, and techno into a musical "hybrid", the band creates a sound that is all their own. Chester Bennington (the lead singer) takes his vocal performance from smooth and melodic to growling intesity and back again within each song. Accomanying him, Mike Shinoda (MC) blends his raps perfectly into the mix. The lyrics are deep and metaphorical, deeling with real issues and inner conflicts, plus they are totally devoid of the cursing that has recently become nearly unavoidable for fans of rock music. This band is not out to become trendy or to sell records. They live for their fans and their music. This band is groundbreaking, their sound is diverse, unique, highly memorable, and suprisingly refined for a debut album. This is the only CD that I own that i can listen to not only once but several times through without getting tired of it. It is simply amazing, this is the best band in years. This is a must own!

Songs on this CD that you have likely heard on the radio:
2. One Step Closer
5. Crawling
6. Runaway
8. In the End

Songs on this CD that you may not have heard that are even better than the ones you probably have.

1. Papercut
3. With You
4. Points of Authority
9. Place for My Head
12. Pushing Me Away

PS if you like Linkin Park, keep an eye on newcomer band TRUSTCompany.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hybrid Theory by Megan Leckie
Hybrid Thoery is FANTATIC, Linkin Park are a truely Talented band and deserve all the success they get, I love Meteora also, and all there other CD's. I also HIGHLY recomend there Live in Texas CD, they sound fantastic, they know how to please a crowd, and can actually sing and play there instruments unlike alot of bands. Hybrid Theory is 1 of the best albums ever (the others are also Linkin Park albums), they have made a great album and hopefully will continue to do so for many more years! ... Read more

Editorial Review

If R.E.M. hadn't already blazed the trail years ago, Vertical Horizon's Everything You Want would be a seminal album, with its earnest harmonies, fluid melodies, and jangly guitars. And while Vertical Horizon may not have taken many forks off the road to Athens, they have whipped up an excellent pop-rock meld out of the purloined elements. Beginning with the ardent and anthemic "We Are," the pop band who began life on Georgetown's central campus nearly a decade before this major-label debut was released unleashes a personal diary of loss, love, and angst. The band, led by school chums Matthew Scannell and Keith Kane, find they just can't leave their pedagogical leanings behind. Only this time their investigations are into the mysteries of the human heart rather than Zeno's famous paradoxes. But the real paradox here is how a band so derivative can have made such a credible album. This time familiarity doesn't breed contempt. "You're a God," an edgy lament about putting someone on a pedestal, could have been lifted right out of the Alanis songbook, but it still manages to shimmer on its own merit, as do most of the 11 songs. --Jaan Uhelszki ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A great album -- just an entirely different sound.
If you're going to listen to "Everything You Want" expecting it to be anything like the acoustic sounds of "There and Back Again," you might be more than a little disappointed. "Running on Ice" proved right away that Vertical Horizon was drifting from their original sound, picking up a few more instruments. Still, tracks such as "Sunrays & Saturdays" let their audience know that V.H. wouldn't abandon their "softer" songs completely. However, it seems that their RCA debut may hint otherwise. With a sound that is reminiscent of Counting Crows, R.E.M., Bush, and even Collective Soul at times, Vertical Horizon has made a single leap into the pop-rock genre. Even the album's title "Everything You Want" suggests a reason for this change, assuming that a louder, "plugged in" sound is what people are looking for. Sure, this may upset Vertical Horizon purists, but a true fan listening to the album void of any expectations will find it to be a great collection of songs. The balanced solos of earlier albums have given way to a CD which is largely Matthew Scannell, singing higher and louder undoubtedly to rise over a set of drums and few new electrical currents. It might be nice to hear a bit more from Keith Kane in the future, but his distant harmonies throughout and a last-minute lead vocal appearance on the final track "Shackled" will have to do for now. Speaking personally, I do miss the acoustic sounds of "There and Back Again," and, while "Everything You Want" might not be EVERYTHING you want, a couple of rotations in the old CD player will prove it to be a wonderful album. Just make sure to keep the old stuff on a nearby shelf. That way you can't miss it TOO much. --Erich

4-0 out of 5 stars A CD that never stops changing emotions
There is very little that one could want more out of Vertical Horizon's debut CD with a major label, other than the music provided on "Everything You Want". VH has done an amazing job blending their talent in producing sincere and intense lyrics with their awesome harmonies. No group can complete with the way VH jams on guitar, and after being grabbed by the music, you are quickly enthralled by the meaning of the lyrics. "You're A God" was the perfect single to be released on radios, but one will quickly fall in love with the total package within moments of putting it in the CD. As with all of VH's albulms, the mix of songs on the CD allow you to enjoy a different tune for every emotion you might be feeling- and the CD will spark new thoughts and emotions each time you play it. This is a definitely must buy for any fan of music that comes from the heart, and if you like these songs than you will be blown away by the previous 3 CD's VH released.

5-0 out of 5 stars How do they do it?
Matt Scannell is the best song writer working today. Vertical Horizon is the most diverse band in the mainstream music scene and GO is hands down the best record to surface this year. I had never heard of VH until "Everything You Want" became a number one single a few years back. But since then, I have purchased and listened to all of their recordings. It is hard to believe that what began as an acoustic duo has matured into a band of such scope and depth that they easily move between arena rock anthems (ONE OF YOU & SUNSHINE), funky/sexy/crazy/cool tunes (WON'T GO AWAY), can't get them out of your head all day, radio friendly singles like I'M STILL HERE, ECHO and WHEN YOU CRY, and break your heart/slit your wrist break up songs like FOREVER, GOODBYE AGAIN and IT'S OVER. As if that's not enough, they end the record with a spooky, haunting tribute to all that was ever great about Peter Gabriel entitled UNDERWATER that leaves me shaking my head and wondering where the hell did these guys come from and am I the only one that is hearing this? This album is a rollercoaster of emotion and electricity with both acoustic and electric guitars that leave me both exhausted and energized. All that I can do is listen again and enjoy the ride. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Recommended, but flawed
The best thing about this soundtrack is that every song you hear IS in the movie, and makes you remember certain moments of the film. As far as quality goes, the good tracks on here are very good, but the mediocre ones bring this soundtrack down.

Good: Lit, Electrasy, Urge, Bliss, Wailing Souls.

Mediocre: Powerman 5K, Fun Lovin Criminals, Texas, Splashdown.

Poor: Jamiroquai, Luscious Jackson.

No, the Creed song "Higher" isn't here, which begs a good question: why only 11 songs? Seems kinda strange, especially on a soundtrack, where overkill is usually the norm. The quantity issue also hurts this disc. I enjoyed the movie immensely, which is why I bought the soundtrack. However seeing as how half of the tunes here are disposable, you might want to think twice.

(and, yes, I am all in favor of an instrumental soundtrack with the orchestral stuff from the film)

4-0 out of 5 stars A nice mix and a nice feel
It is true that "Higher" is not on the soundtrack, as most would probably expect from the promotional campaign that Fox launched. But flipping the case over will show you you're still getting a pretty good CD. It may not be the choice for those of you who are expecting a straight Alternative album, but for those of you with varied tastes, its definitely got some great sounds and I think a good feel for what the movie's supposed to be. Sitting back and listening to the various tunes you can barely help but feel in some kind of future/space link to it all. Lit's "Over my head" and The Urge's "It's my turn to fly" are definitely some high points that'll get you pumped up for the movie. Can't forget some fun tunes from Jamiroquai and Wailing Souls, and some heavier stuff from Powerman 5000. Overall its got the right feel, its got some variety (unlike a lot of other soundtracks coming out lately)...I give it 4 stars...

5-0 out of 5 stars ...It's Over My Head...
A great soundtrack to a great movie. Lit's 'Over My Head' is fun, Powerman 5000's 'The End Is Over' is okay, But the two best songs of all are Electrasy's 'Cosmic Castaway' and Urge's 'It's My Turn To Fly'. Although most of the music on here is rock and metal (there's even a song that's rap), it's nonetheless good music for fan's of the movie. ... Read more

Editorial Review

No Name Face is an auspicious debut from a band seemingly made to rule the airwaves. The insinuating melodies that mark Lifehouse's radio-friendly sound are not unlike those of matchbox twenty or Live in their softer moments. From the first single, "Hanging by a Moment," to the emotive and uplifting "Quasimodo" and the wonderful "Trying" (think Crowded House at their lilting best), Lifehouse are self-possessed and focused. Young singer-songwriter Jason Wade (the son of two ministers) imbues Lifehouse's vibe with a spiritual quality that's never heavy-handed, delivering the goods with the authority of an experienced troubadour. No Name Face may be a first offering from a young band, but it looks to signal the beginning of an estimable career. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A rarely good album
Some albums you will listen to for like two weeks straight because you are just so hooked to it. However, you then become very sick of that album. That wasn't the case with Lifehouse- No Name Face. This album is so rounded out. Not only are the songs catchy, but the lyrics are amazing and the composition of the songs are like....WHOA! This cd was in my cd player for months. The lyrics aren't just, "I am crazy for her" or "I don't know where we are heading", its way more spiritual and creative. The stand out songs are: Sick Cycle Carousel, Unknown, The Only One, SImon, Quasimodo, and SOmewhere In Between. SOmewhere In Between is the song that convinced me to buy this CD. Trust me, the songs on this CD will make your head spin. THe lead singer has an amazing voice! The rest of this CD is not like Hanging By A Moment, so if you are totally sick of that song, don't worry it is not even a standout track compared to some of the other songs on this CD. Bottom line: Do you see all these other 5 star reviews? Its a clear sign, GET THIS CD! You will not regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not to be confused with any other band!
Finally a Cd by a band that speaks their mind intelligently! No Name Face contains songs that deal with the major struggles teens deal with today, relevant issues with real answers! If you have really followed Lifehouse, you would know that they were formally known as Blyss, a west coast band that got their start playing in churches (just to give you a brief background on them). These guys are the real deal, though they aren't so focus on pushing their religion everyone, they have religiously profound lyrics. OK, enough about that. Musically, they totally rock. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for people who like hard-core rock but it does have a nice mix of rock and mellow. These guys are going to make it big! The song 'Hanging by a Moment' has already hit the top of the charts, yet know one knows who they are.... YET! Get in on the ground floor!

WARNING: Do not label these guys as a Creed wanna-be! The sound might be similar, but listen to the lyrics! I know I'm stressin' lyrics here, but that's where I think this Cd is a cut above the rest! I'm sick of the typical "I love this girl but she like... dumped me," lyrics. These guys have depth! Anyway, I'm sure you've figured by now that I like them very much and if you haven't already, give them a chance as a band, they will blow you away!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Own
I know this album has been out for a while, but I finally just acquired it. Lifehouse is a great band with a great sound. This cd demonstrates the singer's vocal ranges with some top-notch instrument performances. "Hanging By a Moment" starts the cd off by pumping a lot of up-tempo guitars and drums mixed with moving lyrics. The song "Unknown" talks about the unknown feelings and emotions that a person experiences. This album has it all, from fast passed music to slower (yet awesome) songs. It even has songs such as "Breathing" which are thought provoking and meditative. Even when this cd becomes hard to find, it is a definate must-buy. Thanks Tommie for this listening experience. ...

WOW! When I bought this CD I was about to die. I popped that baby in and danced so hard I thought I might split my shorts. The tracks are the sweetest I have heard in a LONG time! I even found a secret track. If you play the songs in this order a secret one is unlocked: 1,11,8,6,4,10,2,6,7,3,9,5 It is called "The beat won't stop" and I think it may be better than Sandstorm. Check it out.

5-0 out of 5 stars My humble opinion....
No words I could possibly say could describe the divine sounds that will enter your ears while listening to this CD. Let me put it into plain english for you... play this CD, and your body WILL move, regardless if you want it to or not!

I know, I know, here's what your saying right about now... "What the hell is he smoking!?!? Twenty bucks for a damn CD, no freakin' way am I buyin' that damn thing!" Ha, caught ya didn't I? Well let me tell you something... if you don't get this CD, your at a MAJOR loss. If your a DJ, your at an even bigger loss! In my experiance, no matter what mood the crowd is in, I've never, ever, seen the crowd NOT go absolutely crazy when 'Sandstorm' comes thru the speakers. Want more? Play 'Feel The Beat' immediately before, then mix into 'Sandstorm'. Trust me, it's not hard... they have simular beats and it sounds outstanding.

Trust me when I say I'm not usually like this. It's extreamly rare for me to be this crazy about a CD, but until you've heard it, you have no idea. Buy this CD, I promise you'll be happy.

2-0 out of 5 stars this record repeats...
For anyone who tuned into the radio stations in 2001, I'm sure youve heard the euro hit ' feel the beat' and 'sandstorm' While these are both good tracks, the rest of the cd is lacking and repetitive. Honestly, its as if the v man has remixed the entire cd after its previous track. The vocals arent great, and the cd is an alltogether sloppy effort, lacking structure. However, there is supposedly a 'hidden track' if you play your tracks in a specific order, but i never got it to work. In sum, your 14.95 would be better spent on a variety of other cd's. If youre a TRUE trance fan, this is a sellout item, put it back on the shelf and move on to something more true to the style. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Following in the footsteps of Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, American Hi-Fi frontman Stacy Jones put aside his drum duties with Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo to form American Hi-Fi--a wise move since Jones proves here to be a gem of a singer-songwriter and guitarist. The quartet's 13-song debut disc runs the gamut from booming, bubblegummy rock with edgy undertones ("Surround") to infectious, Offspring-like pop punk ("Flavor of the Weak"). Muscular guitars create an arena-rock feel, while producer Bob Rock (Metallica, the Cult) helps make the group's stylistic shifts seem smooth as they move from the metallic "My Only Enemy," which sounds like a more organic Nine Inch Nails, to near Nirvana on "Hi-Fi Killer." American Hi-Fi cranks out delectable ear candy for fans of pure, guitar-driven power pop. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Get this CD, it is amazing!!! American Hi-Fi is awesome!
I know all of you people probably think Flavor of the Week is the only good song on the CD, but you wrong! This CD has tons of good songs!!!! "Another Perfect Day" is the best song out there, behind "Flavor of the Week"! It's an awesome song!!! "Vertigo" is a really good song, and they have more good songs! I could listen to this CD 10 times through, and still be loving every song! This CD ROCKS!

And by the way American Hi-Fi is not pop!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good CD
American Hi-Fi's first and currently only CD, I think, is a pretty good one. There's a lot of good rock, and some songs are semi-punk. It gets tiring after a while, but 'Flavor of the Weak' is one you'll wanna listen to a lot.

5-0 out of 5 stars i LOVE it!
hey,
first i bought this cd 'cause i only knew the song "another perfect day" and i loved it when i first heard it, but then when you start listening to it you can't stop playing this cd over and over again, I just love it, I mean i just start singing the songs all the time, I even listen to it in my moms car, is like adicting, lol. anyways, buy it, this is the coolest cd ever ;) bye!

Editorial Review

Danish group Aqua arrived on the international pop scene in 1997 withtheir multimillion-selling smash single "Barbie Girl." Developing a formula pioneered by their successful Swedish rivals Ace of Base and Whigfield, the banddemonstrated on this album that they were more than just one-hit wonders (atleast in markets outside America). Skillfully crafted for instant, easilydigestible consumption, Aquarium is equally entertaining at the club orat home. It's jammed full of bubblegum pop classics, ranging from the Eurodiscoopening track "Happy Girls & Boys" to the Madonna-esque ballad "Turn Back Time." A treat for all pop lovers, it is an album that will both entertain and surprise. --John Galilee ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
A fantastically trashy collection of cartoonish Europop, often so cheerful and upbeat that it's almost depressing ('Happy Boys and Girls' for example). The haunting vocal interplay of squeaky Lene and gruff Rene is something that you don't forget in a hurry, and the artfully-mangled English (almost the first line on the album is 'I've got a feeling you could use a little smile') adds to the goofy charm. It's actually quite hard to not like them - they don't seem to have any pretentions to being 'art' (unlike, say, 'Ace of Base').

The stand-out tracks here are the singles 'Barbie Girl', 'My Oh My', 'Dr Jones', and 'Turn Back Time' (which sounds extraordinarily Madonna-esque), with 'Happy Boys and Girls' and 'Calling Me' acting as solid reserves. Most of the other songs are fairly anonymous - 'In the Heat of the Night' is fun, but you'll probably skip the rest.

Given the band's inventive visual style, it would have been nice if the album had included the amusing videos, but you can't have everything.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great All-Around Album!
Aqua, the funky-looking foursome from Denmark ( actually, they're originally from Sweden ), graced the music scene in 1997 with their first single, the controversal "Barbie Girl". The happy beat of most of their songs led a lot of listeners ( myself, included ) to buy their début album, "Aquarium". Here is the track-by-track review:-

1) Happy Boys & Girls ( 2nd Single ):- Great opening to the album with this joyous song depicting happy people! Pretty much sets the mood for most of this album.

2) My Oh My:- The arrangement of this tune makes it seem like a song from a fairy tale in the medieval times. A creative arrangement carries out this strange melody nicely.

3) Barbie Girl ( 1st Single ):- The song that started it all. This club favourite has a catchy melody, funny premise, plus a funny, albeit squeaky female lead voice ( Lene Nystrøm ) playing Barbie, and a sexy male voice ( Réné Dif ) playing Ken.

4) Good Morning Sunshine:- A moderate ballad with a good beat that sounds plain in the verses but livens up promisingly in the chorus.

5) Doctor Jones ( 3rd Single ):- Another fast song with a nice beat, catchy melody that appeals to the young crowd. A very lively song that makes you want to dance.

6) Heat Of The Night:- A dance tune with a latin touch in the arrangement. The melody is so-so but is still very listenable with the attractive musical background.

7) Be A Man:- One of the two ballads in the album. This song is sometimes forgotten by listeners as they look forward to the fast songs from Aqua rather than slow ballads. Well, they are missing out! This is actually a very solid ballad with a melody that suits quite well with the touching lyrics. Definitely, one of my recommendations in this album.

8) Lollipop ( Candyman ) ( 4th Single ):- Another song that anyone can dance and sing along to with funny lyrics, and a good dancy beat.

9) Roses Are Red:- One of the more weird fast songs in the album that might turn some listeners off due to its strange arrangement as well as its irregular melody. However, still okay to listen to.

10) Turn Back Time ( 5th Single ):- Featured in the film "Sliding Doors", this is the other ballad in the album. Once again, Aqua not only excels in fast songs, but also in this slow song about someone regretting the decisions in life she's made and wishes she could turn back the hands of time to make some changes.

11) Calling You:- One of the weaker fast songs in the album with a bland melody and an okay arrangement. However, it is still above-average compared to songs from other artists.

This is a must-buy for any music fan due to versatile musical skills of the group, both in composing and in singing. Highly recommended for any pop music library.

Editorial Review

After No Doubt sold more than 10 million copies of Tragic Kingdom, riding that wave of success without toppling over must have been a daunting mission. No sweat for No Doubt. The band toiled as national unknowns with a loyal local following for a decade before that album's release, and during that time the band members were learning how to be better songwriters and musicians. The follow-up, Return of Saturn, glides along that continuum of songcraft perfection. The band presents a cleaner, less apologist representation of their influences. They pull off some of the more difficult maneuvers of pure reggae, ground-pounding ska, and Cars-esque New Wave. Gwen Stefani, the fearless Orange County princess, belts a powerful pout, her Mae West-meets-Siouxsie Sioux vocal bravado the bungee cord that springs in between the band's retro tendencies and SoCal pop-punk attitude. It seems believable that she could stamp her foot and always get her way, but her self-deprecating confessions evade brattiness. Songs like "Bathwater" and "Ex-Girlfriend" reveal the singer's vulnerability to being hurt or dumped on, and the band's sense of humor and exploration (albeit firmly controlled) matches the songs' sentiments. This group is growing out and tightening up, and while the rest of the ska-punk surfer-dude bands do nothing more than repeat history, No Doubt is creating it. --Beth Massa ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Well balanced successor to 'Tragic Kingdom,' but...
As a huge Gwen fan, I love No Doubt's music regardless of whether or not it is tops. I do very much like this album, but it is definitely missing that special feeling that 'Tragic Kingdom' has. 'Return of Saturn' is a rock/pop album, more than anything. I miss the reggae that the group is known for, which could have fit into some of the songs easily. Basically, this album lacks the white heat of 'Tragic Kingdom,' and the funky, reggae rhythms of 'Rock Steady.' What I truly like, though, is the fact that No Doubt is never afraid to experiment and try something new. Simply, this is a rock album (which really does suit their style). If anything, 'Return...' is about versitility. My fave song is 'Ex-girlfriend.' Fantastic, fast-paced rock at its best! The one song I could have done without: 'Six Feet Under.' One of the great b-sides from the numerous singles, like the awesome 'Big Distraction' should have been used instead. Although Gwen's voice is in top form, the lyrics are simple and, really, kind of senseless. The main verse goes, "Today is my birthday, and I have one every year. And someday, hard to believe, I'm gonna be six feet under ground, gonna be six feet under ground." Come on No Doubt, you can do better than that. Aside from that flaw, the rest of the album stands up well in true rock fashion.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very DEEP album.
I was a great fan of No Doubt after Tragic Kingdom blew me awaywith a dose of punk attitude and ska sensibility, and after hearingEx-Girlfriend and its decidedly non-ska attitude on the radio I was tentative to buy this album. But one day, I went to buy the Hole CD, and they didn't have it. I was curious about the new No Doubt sound, so I bought it. Was I ever impressed! They have deepened their sound to achieve something with a lot more emotion than their previous albums. Gwen Stefani has improved her vocals immensely, sounding smooth and harsh at the same time. She handles the demanding range changes with ease and more than a little class, often times altering her punk Southern Cali attitude to fit the earnestness of some of the songs. The songs... well, the highpoints of the album are the oddly structured "Ex-Girlfriend", the high octane "Staring Problem", heart-wrenching ballads "Suspension Without Suspense" and "Too Late", and the pleading "Home Now". Gwen Stefani's signature hard rock-chick voice comes to the fore in "Artificial Sweetener" and "Comforting Lie". Some of the other sings are good, such as "Bathwater" and the U.S. bonus track "Leftovers". However, tracks "Magic in the Makeup" and "Marry Me" leave something to be desired. It seemed that the group was just in a bad mood and churned out these songs, which are somewhat disappointing in their aimlessness. Oh well. The musicianship on this album far exceeds No Doubt's previous efforts. All of the elements are here...the band has certainly exceeded its predecessor album Tragic Kingdom. A very good buy, worth your time and money.

2-0 out of 5 stars I expected more
I love No Doubt, but this album... I expected more... yes substance is good, talking about deeper things, but I only listen to "ex girlfriend" and "Go". This album just doesn't cut it for me. This album is like a downer. Too sad. ... Read more

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

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizkit's in the house, y'all!
If you're interested in rapcore, I think you'd like this CD. Just Like This is an awesome song. I think you'd like it. It's one of my favorite songs on the CD. A good rap song. If you like My Way, by Limp Bizkit(see chocolate starfish,) you should hear No Sex. If you're a Linkin Park fan, I'd suggest the song Don't Go Off Wandering. If You're a KoRn fan, you'd probably like Nobody Like You. Nookie's a good song, but I don't think it's the best, but it's real good. Peace, I'm out, your biggest fan, Pete S. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this CD, no mattar what Micah and "Bob Marley" say
" Reviewer: bob marley from Cincinnati, Ohio December 12, 1999 Korn, hard hitting music with deeply emotional lyrics. even if you dont respect the band, you have to respect thier energy. ever since MTV got thier dirty hands on Korn, they've been overplayed and have sold out. In the trend of Metallica's short haircuts, Korn has gone the mainstream route for money rather than integrity to the music they play. What expectations can you have for this album, already knowing that it will be bought because the media tells us to, korn is no longer the underground revoloution band, thier mainstream and losing thier edge. buy the album if you want to, but its a losing battle, and its not Korn's fault."

What a load of BULL! I can't believe that anyone could say that! KoRn has NOT sold out, and this guy should learn to listen more. You can't think while listening to KoRn, you just have to listen. This dude obviously hasn't learned that yet. If you have previously liked KoRn, amd you aren't too fond of this CD, then you're thinking too hard. The energy level on this CD is high, and rather than thinking of how much money these guys are gunna make, or who is making profits off of their talent, please just listen and go along with the music.

2-0 out of 5 stars This is horrible
The worst korn cd i ever heard. 2 tracks on the whole thing i think i would listen to. i dont know what else to say. follow the leader had some awesome music, the music just is bad on this one as john davis wines about stuff. So if you want to hear that buy it now.

I hate edited c.d.'s because I think they take away from the overall effect of the album, and is some sort of violation of freedom of speech but i'm just talking. This is a great Korn c.d., and would be shown in its true form if it wasn't edited. Buy the unedited one, not this one. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It took hip-hop a couple of decades to become ingrained in pop music, but the genre's influence shows on Len's You Can't Stop the Bum Rush. The members of Len might not agree--after all, they probably consider themselves a hip-hop act, and they've got a case, what with their lineup (which incorporates a DJ and a couple of MCs), their use of loops and samples (from the Andrea True Connection, the Bar Kays, Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel, and the big mack daddy himself, John Travolta), and guests like Biz Markie, Kurtis Blow, and Mr. Dibbs. But there's something very pop at the core of Len, and it's what makes Bum Rush so special--as hip-hop becomes harder and more experimental, Len rediscover a very vital part of the history. Filled with keyboards, dance rhythms, harmonies, stoner humor, and Sugar Ray-ish party vocals, Bum Rush is pure pop for the hip-hop generation. The album keeps things light but never skimps in delivering single after single; they may all prove disposable, but why worry about that now? --Randy Silver ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Please, Please, Stop The Bums Rush
Man are these guys .... Standard white boy 'hip hop', emphasizing parties and macho posturing. Sort of a cuter and more modern version of the Beastie Boys, but somewhat less interesting. Not surprisingly, the hits ('Feelin Alright' and 'Steal My Sunshine') are the best tracks precisely because the band doesn't try to rap. One is reminded of like minded lameo Everlast, but although the lows are just as low, the highs are not as high.

5-0 out of 5 stars Len for the hip hop lovers
If you listen to hip-hop or techno, this cd is for you. When I first got it I only listened to the first 4 tracks. But afterwards, I started to enjoy the rest of it. I'm sure everyones heard "Steal My Sunshine". If you've heard of the Cryptik Souls Crew, and Kudo 5 they're featured in "Cryptik Souls Crew". "Man of the Year" is more of techno then hip-hop. And "Beautiful Day" is like an old ska song. "The Hard disk Approach" and "Hot Rod Monster Jam" are almost a hard core rock with the bass guitar. "Cold Chillin'" is like a concert of the "4 Ways to Rock", with hip-hop/techno. "Fellin' Alright", "Cheekybugger" and "Big Meanie" are nice, easy beat hip-hop/pop songs. While "June Bug" and "Crazy 'Cause I believe" are kind of a gospel.

4-0 out of 5 stars A work of Joy!
Admittedly, I have owned this album for 3 years now. And only NOW have I discovered how great an album it is. I originally bought the Album because I loved the song "Cryptic Souls Crew" when I saw the video on MTV. Until the last year, I listenned to ONLY that 1 song. But this year ... I listenned to more.

My description of the album:
How can I best say it, hmmm... The strength of this album is how it makes me feel. The album makes me feel like bringing together all of my friends and taking them SURFING, or SNOW-BOARDING, or CRUISING THE BEACHES OF CALIFORNIA. Most of the music on the album promotes this fun-loving/good-hearted mood. Man, sometimes I wish I lived in California. I desire to roller-blade and cruise the beaches there.

I have a personal preference for the 'order' in which the songs are heard. It is my opinion that the songs are , on the CD, in the wrong order. I prefer to play the songs in this order (by track #): 1 6 4 2 7 3 9 8 10 12 (I don't like tracks 5 and 11).

Other notes:
With Biz Markie on a couple tracks, and DJ 'Mr. Biggs' -- this album is full of fun. I like 9 out of the 12 tracks a lot! One track is ~ok~. Two tracks, I don't like. I would like to give this album 4 1/2 stars, but that's not possible; So it gets 4.
The 9 of the 12 tracks that I like a lot are worth 5 stars each. ... Read more
