Editorial Review

Shawn Colvin's fans are a dedicated and patient lot. They've had to be, to have waited five years for this new release and nearly six for the one before it. But she rewards the faithful with gems every time, and Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful gift from one of our purest talents
At times rueful, angry, sad and hopeful, Shawn Colvin's new release paints a musical landscape of deep introspection and timeless beauty.Her words penetrate the active listener, a verse, chorus or phrase may touch one of us more than another depending on what life has dealt us (or we've dealt ourselves!), but be assured that there is something here for all of us.John Leventhal (whom I saw a few weeks back onstage with his beautiful and talented wife and musical partner, Rosanne Cash), is, and always has been, a perfect match for Shawn's musical voice.Together, and surrounded by a typically great list of musicians, they have created another masterwork.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ain't it cool-
I absolutely loved "A Few Small Repairs" and was not sure Shawn would ever be able to top it.Well, she does. I agree that less production is more-- she doesn't need it. In fact, she should do a completely solo album w/voice & guitar and maybe have a few tracks with another guitar & bass thrown in.Her rendition of Westerberg's "Even Here We Are" is perfect--and *almost* makes up for "Every Little Thing He Does is Magic..."I think John Lennon would have liked this one.Seriously.
5-0 out of 5 stars BestShawn Colvin Album Ever!
I read on one of these things that this was not an "accessible" album or some such rot. Baloney. This is a GREAT album. Period.

The buzz for Nelly Furtado's Read more

Reviews (218)

4-0 out of 5 stars And all you wanted was to run for cover (4.5)
When I use to think of Nelly Furtado I couldn't help but automtically start singing "I'm like a bird". That's all she ever was to me, the girl who sang the bird song. However, I heard, and I kid you not, a 4 second sound clip of Promiscuous in the middle of a store and right then decided I needed this CD. I stalled for the longest time though because I just knew it would be a waste of money. A sudden urge and extra cash summed up my purchase of this CD though. I don't regret it at all. Sure there are some parts that tend to drag a little more than I'd like but for the most part, Nelly has created something special with Loose.
1-0 out of 5 stars Nellie didn't reinvent herself
The music business did. Nellie Furtado is gorgeous, always has been, but I used to respect her music. The industry did the same thing to her as they did to Jewel. They took a fresh, folky act and transformed her into an electronic joke made to sound like everyone else with a top 40 record. That is a shame because she has a great deal of talent. Put her with Timberland and surprise, she's like Fergie and every other fake artist in the game. I know you're asking me what I know about the game. I haven't had many top 40 hits in my life, in fact I haven't had any, but I front some of the best cover bands in southeast Nebraska. My band is called Blisterpuss(the last part is pronounced like bus, but with a "p"). We do covers of bands like Dishwalla, Counting Crows and Live. People in the business have told us we need to be more like 98 degrees or Justin Timberlake if we are ever going to play venues like North Platte or Hamburg, Iowa. Granted, it's tempting to sell out to play places that bring in crowds over 100, but if we did that could we live with ourselves? Jabs might be able to because he seems destined for bigger things since he plays drums and bass guitar at the same time, but the rest of us don't want to compromise what makes us who we are. Sure, we could cover Hasselhoff and win crowds over in a heartbeat, but Hasselhoff's music is in a holy place we are not allowed to touch. So we crank out what we know and fans are all up on us.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not doing what he does best
"Suprise" is a good album, and while several people seemed to be disappointed with "You're the One" and our "suprisingly" happy with this one, I just the opposite.I have loved every one of Simon's albums until this one.I appreciate the fact that he has stepped out of his comfort zone, but the zone he moved into doesn't seem to fit his style.
4-0 out of 5 stars the holy man only breaks bread
Which of these was more befuddling:the fact that Paul Simon and Brian Eno -- two musicians as legendary and as monstrously talented as you'll ever run across -- conjoined to rail against metrosexuality, or the fact that said union yielded summer's most surprisingly poignant (and to boot, most boldly mature) four minutes of music?"Outrageous" is quintessential late-career Simon (other words, the lyrics are almost too cutesy to tolerate, something that began twenty years ago with "You Can Call Me Al" (his last major radio hit, incidentally) and has only gotten more severe with each successive release), but Eno quite obviously kept the reins pulled very tight.The result was blissfully unnerving, the kind of song you need to listen to four or five times to fully grasp (and with headphones each time, lest a thousand or more of Eno's inlaid electronic blips and textural rudiments go hurtling straight past you), the kind of song that sets up its protagonist by mocking him for doing nine hundred situps a day and painting his hair "the color of mud" but then flips it around, allowing sarcasm to melt into empathy by asking, "Who's gonna love you when your looks are gone?"And for a writer who almost had us convinced that his best material was over three decades behind him ("ain't no fool / for love songs / that whisper / in my ears / still crazy / after all these years," anyone?), this was about as stupendous as comebacks get.

Editorial Review

This is the first attempt to consolidate all of Sir Elton's hit singles, from three labels, in one collection. It once would've required at least four CDs to own the best stuff here. Many think the legendary performer was at his best in the early to mid-'70s, and the incredible string of singles that ran from 1970's "Your Song" through 1977's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" remains mighty impressive. But in retrospect, as they're presented here, '80s hits like "I'm Still Standing" and "Sad Songs" add much to an already amazing legacy. Three Disney tunes, the lush "The One," and two from Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars From what I can tell, Disc 1 should have been 2 discs.
I'm an old Elton John / Bernie Taupin fan. That time was Elton's most creative period, and where the most hits came out (both on AM and FM radio). Disc 1 has a lot of great hits, but has a lot missing (including entire albums). On a minor point, there is nothing from Empty Sky (this is OK - it wasn't that great of an album, but should have been represented by something). On a major point, nothing came from (the incredibly great) Tumbleweed Connection. That album had (at least) 4 great hits (Amoreena, My Father's Gun, Country Comfort, and Burn Down The Mission). With those 2 omissions, lets go through the rest of the John / Taupin library.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
I simply LOVE this album.Elton John is a phenomenal artist.His lyrical flow soothes my soul.This album is definitely my comfort music when I'm sad, and my fun music when I'm happy.I pop in my cd while I'm driving down the road and it feels as though I'm taking a stroll down memory lane.These songs fill my heart with wonderful memories and I find myself putting certain songs on repeat.I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to hear some good music.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Elton Collection available today.
There's no way you can reduce Elton John's career to one cd and do it justice. So we have this beautifully remastered collection of hits on two cds. The first cd is devoted exclusively to Elton John's Greatest Hits from the 1970s. This is all right, because many of Elton's long time fans will agree that this was his most creative and prolific period. You get Bennie and the Jets, Crocodile Rock, Honky Cat, Good bye Yellow Brick Road, Philadelphia Freedom, and much more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brings back memories!!
I remember many moons ago! when I was in the third grade and my music teacher let me borrow her Tapestry song book. I took that book with me everywhere, and learned all the songs,and sang them all the time. I drove my mom crazy!!!So when I was on a road trip with my family the radio played It's too late, and I thought it would be great to buy the whole CD, and I did. Now I can drive my husband and kids crazy!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars After all these years
Tapestry was one of the first albums in my collection.Thirty five years later, it is still arguably the best album ever written. In fact, NO collection is complete without Tapestry.Ms. King's lyrics are full of emotion, and the delivery is incredible.Clear, pure and soulful, it transcends generations. Carole can captivate so completely with the haunting 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow' and move easily into the toe-tapping 'Smackwater Jack' with ease.Adding James Taylor to the mix was a touch of genius. His voice and acoustic guitar are the perfect compliment.I love every song on this album, although the title song is my least favorite, only because it seems out of place on this collection. If I had to choose only one song to keep with me forever, it would be 'A Natural Woman'.Simple, stirring, with beautiful piano accompaniment, it is impossible not to sing along with this anthem of the 70s.

Editorial Review

With her fourth album, Australia's Kasey Chambers is expanding her realm. There are bigger sounds, including a flurry of electric guitars, and she has winningly created a whole new set of mysterious tensions. Eschewing the softer sound that had defined her earlier work, Chambers' innocent sounding voice is now set against a world of shadows and acute angles. The band also eases into a range of sophisticated grooves, from the noir-infused "Light up a Candle" to the barn burning "Got You." Chambers can still churn out catchy melodies, which she does at every turn (the chorus to "Sign on the Door" is unstoppable), though she keeps them from ever becoming cloying. Also with the expansive arrangements there's a dynamic quality to the album as a whole, as density gives way to open spaces. Indeed, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Divine
This is a phenomenal album that grows stronger w/each listen. From the opening, hypnotic "Colour of a Carnival" to the closing, heartfelt "Don't Look So Sad," there's nary a weak track. And while it's true that Kasey has eschewed some of the alt.country underpinnings of her previous works for a more mainstream approach, there's still plenty of twang here - "Light up a Candle," "Hard Road" and "Railroad," for instance, the latter of which chugs along a la Lucinda Williams' "Joy" (and feature an incredible vocal from Kasey). Other highlights include the rollicking "I Got You Now" and the absolutely divine "You Make Me Sing" ... plus "Dangerous," which - as all the songs here, actually - features a hypnotic vocal. Perhaps that's why the change in sonic colourings almost seems a moot point. Her voice is such an expressive instrument that, regardless of context, you come away entranced. I do, at any rate.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lonely don't live here anymore
Kasey is back with a new cd.She's stepped farther way from her country and alt/country roots and approached the rock-tinged, singer/songwriter sound with her considerable song writing talents intact.She's accomplished this with more success and sincerity than either the Dixie Chicks or Allison Moorer did in their recent releases.

I had this disc once before and it was stolen. Loved it so much I had to buy it again. I wish it cotained Tupelo Honey and Into the Mystic. Other than that I love this disc . I recommend this to anyone. Whether you are a big fan or just only know a couple of his songs. Lively and uplifting. Great for traffic jams.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wondering why they call this guy Van the Man?
Then you obviously don't own this CD. Fix that sometime soon. Any album with Brown Eyed Girl and a bunch of crappy songs is still worth a purchase, but you get lots more: Three good songs by Them (garage-band anthem Gloria, Baby Please Don't Go, Here Comes the Night) and several great songs by Van himself: the aforementioned Brown Eyed Girl, Sweet Thing, Moondance, And It Stoned Me, Domino, Jackie Wilson Said, Cleaning Windows and the previously-unreleased Wonderful Remark especially stand out, though there's more.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all time greats in his finest form
Van Morrison's Moondance is a great, soulful record from one of the best of the late 60's and early 70's. Featuring his finest collection of songs, the album has a little bit for everyone. Romantic songs like "Moondance" and "Crazy Love" as well as energy-filled tunes like "Caravan" and just great songs like "And it stoned me" help to make this one of the finest collection of songs ever assembled.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just short of a masterpiece.
A very relaxing album from Van, with plenty of great songs. Example? Try the opening one-two punch of And It Stoned Me and the title track, two of Van's most popular songs. But wait! Don't go away yet. There's also Caravan, a song that SHOULD be a classic butisn't quite, as well as Crazy Love and Into the Mystic, two songs I like but not as much as the first two and Caravan. It really is a shame about side two, since one song rises above the average level:Brand New Day, with a joyful chorus.

I really think John Denver's songshas more to it then amazing melody and lyrics and ofcourse not to forget his voice.Its actually hard to compare him with other artists but I can definitely say that I feel the best listening to his songs. Although some of my other fav songs like love again are not included in this cd but still the cd has most of his best songs. The highlights of the cd are the unrealeased version of calypso and leaving on a jet plane. so, If you have heard his songs before or not, this cd is a must buy for all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sunshine Music Lives On
John Denver has melted hearts for generations with what can be described as "sunshine music".A mix of country, bluegrass, folk, and great pop sensibilities, Denver has always been the lucky peoples' choice (even if he is the critics' underdog as a singer songwriter).His voice is excellent. As though he would really need a defense, anyway, his collaboration with Pacido Domingo, one of the three tenors, is certain testimony to his vocal credibility.Cynics need not apply, for if some of his more sentimental songs are "sap," then at least we know he got his ingredients fresh from the best trees in Vermont.He created great soaring songs for lady and land.Some are orchestrated to perfection; others are homegrown prizes."Sunshine on My Shoulders," "Rocky Mountain High," and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" all resonate with articulate sweetness.He perfected ruggedness with "Thank God, I'm a Country Boy" and "Wild Montana Skies," but his serenades are also expert, including "Andromeda, (Welcome to My Morning)" and "Annie's Song".Subjectively, "Calypso" is no hokey homage, but a heartfelt classic that demonstrates a fine vocal range.Besides covering all of the classics, this C.D. collects some great, unfamiliar terrain."Fly Away" and "Sweet Surrender" are excellent songs that add to the scope of the album and his legacy. For those of us willing to stand our ground, his 'Definitive All-Time Greatest Hits' gives us all his famous songs and all the unfamiliar territory we might have missed.John may have left us early, but his portfolio of "sunshine music" has yet to be imitated much and never completely dismissed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Appreciation later in life.....
I was never a 'fan' of John Denver in my growing up years.His music was a part of those years, but I took it for granted just hearing it on the radio. Now, some 20 years later, I can appreciate it more than ever. His beautiful mind, his thoughts, his feelings all come out in his music. My husband and I now own property in West Virginia and when I play 'Country Roads' it makes me cry.Because now I feel the love for that place just like he did when he wrote that heartfelt song.Take me home, country roads...to the place I belong - West Virginia! It makes my heart long for our beautiful mountain! All those songs of yesteryear now mean something to me. I love his style, his words, the arrangements. Just a must play cd long rides in the country or just listening to while cooking supper in the kitchen! Thanks John Denver for making songs that touch the heart! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Experimental singer-songwriter Vienna Teng arrives at her ambitious third album at the peak of her considerable powers, with renowned producer/bassist Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux) providing a more textured and atmospheric landscape. Contributions from musicians Jay Bellerose (Paula Cole, Duncan Sheik), Carla Kihlstedt (Tom Waits), and Marc Orton (Bill Frisell) make Teng's piano-based, jazzy chamber-folk shiver with new intimacy. But at the core, she remains as seductive and transcendent as ever, even as lyrically she takes more of a storytelling approach. Marrying complex melodies and moody tones to captivating lyrics about fevered longings, unspoken truths, and uncharted suffering, the former software engineer pulls listeners into a secret, subterranean world that is often as murky and disturbing as it is wondrous. On "Whatever You Want," a dutiful "company man" and his perfect wife pull back the curtain to reveal a disquieting darkness. In "I Don't Feel So Well," an unbalanced woman issues a provocative warning to a potential lover ("I thought you should know before you fall"). And on "Now Three," delicate cello lines play off a nearly mystical lyric about prenatal knowing. Teng delivers all 11 offerings in a chillingly pure soprano, multitracking her own voice 32 times on the Hurricane Katrina-inspired (if also overlong and ponderous) "Pontchartrain" to achieve something reminiscent of a Latin liturgical piece. Not yet 28 and frighteningly gifted ("Lake Pontchartrain is haunted: Bones without names, photographs framed in reeds"), Teng seems to know your own soul better than you do--the exquisitely beautiful "Recessional," which inspires the album title, may make you rethink your whole life. The album's most uplifting and hopeful cut:"City Hall," inspired by San Francisco's decision in 2004 to recognize gay marriage. ("Ten years waiting for this moment of fate / When we say the words and sign our names / If they take it away someday / This beautiful thing won't change.") Count Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing lyrics, beautiful voice
I was wandering around Borders a couple of weeks ago in a really bad mood, searching for an album that I could just curl up in bed and listen to. Dreaming Through the Noise was set up at one of the listening stations, so I thought I'd give it a try. I listened to a couple of verses from every track and liked what I was hearing. Everything was mid-tempo, she sings with a kind of quiet intensity. And I adored the lyrics...
5-0 out of 5 stars Branching out...
Vienna Teng has often expressed a desire not to get into a rut, to produce the same old stuff over and over again.This is disappointing for those of us who actually like her old music, her lovely voice with gorgeous piano accompaniment.But if she wants her music to mature along with her career, I respect that, and I'll happily go along for the ride.
4-0 out of 5 stars Dreaming Through the Noise
As an avid fan of Vienna Teng's previous releases, I was certainly looking forward to her third album. Dreaming Through the Noise has in no way disappointed me, though it did present a different side of Teng's music.

Its amazing that SO many folks WHINE over the non-inclusion of certain songs, "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out" "Rosalita" and just about everything else!Dont all you BBBBRRRRRRUUUUUUCCCCCCCCEEEEEEE diehards (not Cockburn either) know what was on this one when reviewing it?There's the bias right there!!! Better yet, why complain at all,being HEAVILY PREDISPOSED to certain tracks anyway?The point?Look this is a very good retropective release of music's most known singer/songwriter/ikon of the century!!!There are plenty of styles of music represented here -for the novice ardent or "whomever" fan of his!!!
3-0 out of 5 stars 5.1/10.0
In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. "Never mock a red-blooded American." I suppose what he meant by the red-blooded American are the individuals who work in factories, pursue typical heterosexual relationships, love the roar of a motorcycle, and spend most of their weekends working on their cars. It was Bruce Springsteen who rose upon the spirits of these citizens in the 1970's, with songs about the Atlantic City boardwalk and the everyday traumas of being poor and without privilege.

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed Seeing The Play Twice
I saw the stage production at Hollywood's famous Pantages Theater some years ago, and was quite impressed. I then purchased the CD, which has been in my CD player many times. But I somehow feel the original Movie soundtrack was a bit more superior. Especially the powerful film opening of 'Circle of Life.' I just feel the strong African male vocals delivered much more impact. And not to sound sexist, but Rafiki was also better portrayed as a male, than the female actresses seen in the stage productions. But still an extremely enjoyable listening experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Flawless Material
The Lion King will undoubtedly bring you oodles of entertainment. After recently seeing The Lion King National Tour I just had to have this item. From the legendary opening Circle of Life to the astounded ending, you will experience constant harmony. The land of Africa is a remarkable place, and now you can experience it in your very own home. Buy it now! You simply can't go wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I Have yet to see this play but,the music is absolutley beautiful. it's more than just feel good musical it has a message that can been heared through the music itself. i personally don't even listen to the orgnial songs from the movie soundtrack anymore, because many of the other songs are so spritual amd moveing. songs like; They Lives In You, He Lives In You (reprise, my FAVORUITE), The Cricle Of Life, Soudowland(My Other Fav) and Endless Night. All the Music on this soundtrack are REALLY GOOD. It's a good mixture of fun, and spritual music and does an amazing job of telling the story. The vocals, the music just evrthing is spotless. i can't say enough about this play, it's a classic

5-0 out of 5 stars Elton John's finest hour and one of the Top 10 Studio Double albums in History
Elton John's seventh studio album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was released in October of 1973 on MCA Records here in the US and DJM Records in his native England.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Road Begins
There have been very few records that really shined from the 1970's, that people really appreciate today. Although more of them came from the styles of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, the Disco appeal of Saturday Night Fever with the Bee Gees, and the clever distinction of Billy Joel's storytelling on his 1977 album The Stranger. For Elton John, his appeal from all his eras have been filled with promise, delight, and the comfort of a good pop album. Although he had numerous hits and multiple records since 1969, he also made a appeal with making one of the very few double albums, that not just remained definitive, its story is everlasting.

5-0 out of 5 stars The final classic Elton John album from his golden era IMHO
Elton John's eleventh album which was a concept album entitled Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy was released in May of 1975.
5-0 out of 5 stars E.J . WILL ALWAYS BE "FANTASTIC" WITH ME!!!
I've been a diehard fan since '71. In the process, I've $pent a ton on the EEJ, but he's worth every cent as he's my hero who has "Saved my life" many a time! I was there when EJ Mania was in full swing. As a Footnote, play this & the New Captain/Kid! It's a wonderful double concept! Title track introduces us to EJ & BT/"Tower of Babel" is the early "try to write a tune for others"phase. "Bitter Fingers" continues the trend. "Whistle?" I LOVE THIS TRACK! "Saved" makes me cry as this song is VERY personal to EJ. "Meal Ticket" jams as the struggles continue.
5-0 out of 5 stars the BEST ELTON

5-0 out of 5 stars 1980's with some 60s and 70s sounds
Paul Simon's solo work is nothing to overlook. This is an album full of some of his 80s hits. "Graceland" and "Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes" and "You Can Call Me Al" are popular songs that many people would know if they heard them. The Everly Brother's sing backup on Graceland and help Simon to harmonize. A few of the songs never became popular but are as good as the ones that did. A classic album for any Simon and Garfunkel fan and for anyone who likes easy listening/rock music.

5-0 out of 5 stars 20 years later, still a classic
Having just purchased Simon's excellent new release SURPRISE, I felt compelled to compare his new work with his past works.To me the ruler to which one measures a Paul Simon album is the 1986 album, GRACELAND.

Editorial Review

Though he rose from the ranks of journeyman '60s folksinger to become apotent and consistent '70s hit maker, Canadian singer-songwriter GordonLightfoot's stock in trade was as much hard-eyed, dispassionate observation asromance or poetic whimsy. Perhaps that's why his songs have been covered byeveryone from Elvis (thisset's "Early Morning Rain") toDylan. If there's such athing as an alpha-male folkie, Lightfoot certainly fits the bill. Spanning thetongue-in-cheek chauvinism of 1965's "For Lovin' Me" and the cheatin' ways of"Sundown" to more introspective fare like "If You Could Read My Mind" and"Beautiful," this 20-track collection presents a concise primer on Lightfoot'scareer and craft. After his career peaked with one of the most unlikely top fivehits ever, the gloom-laden 1976 narrative "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,"Lightfoot's production tailed off sharply, though this anthology's "Stay Loose"('86) and "Restless" ('93) are testament to his enduring skills as a songwriterand performer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of best songs
Gordon Lightfoot had some great records back in the '70s and had such brilliant songcraft on all his songs. Sometimes, he and his band had some funky grooves and beats, especially on Sundown. If You Could Read My Mind is very revealing song wise.Carefree Highway is still astounding. But one standout is The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald, which has had a long shelf life.And beating radio's let's-cut-it-down-to-3-to-4 minute rules, all 6 minutes of the song were played on the radio!This song showed that Gordon was ahead of his time musically, as he sang about a story about a sunken ship and the people on it in storytelling form.Although Gordon hasn't put as much music output recently, this collection shows his dominance in the '70s as a dynamic songwriter, performer and artist.

5-0 out of 5 stars HIS MASTERPIECE!
All I want to say has already been said.This is one of a handful of albums you can listen to all the way through and not hit a bad song.It is pure perfection, Taupin's atmospheric lyrics and John's melodies and piano working hand-in-hand.It is the most cinematic album ever made, meaning all you have to do is listen and you'll watch a movie with every song.I love the atmosphere this album creates- take this on a road trip through the country, roll down the windows, and take it all in...

Ordinarily I'd give this album four stars, but the remastered version is phenomenal and the two bonus tracks bump it up to five.

From the OBJECTIVE reviewer...fans and critics alike think this is a masterpiece, and although there isn't a bad song on the album there also isn't anything classic that stands out. Hence this country-esque album just doesn't rise to the top of "best Elton albums." ... Read more

The CD "Madman Across The Water" features, in my opinion, some of the best songs of Elton John.

The songs on "Madman Across the Water" illustrate the excellent voice of Elton John and the writing skills of Bernie Taupin. My ratings:
