    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Album
    Boney James has once again released a superior album. James always manages to compose a fine album, and Shine is no different. This album combines upbeat and relaxing music along with exceptional sound quality and nice ballads. I would recommend Shine to any smooth jazz fan or to someone who enjoys relaxing music. Shine is a must have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Boney is "SHINE" ing bright
    Just a great CD.A lot of vocalists enhance this CD.I would say this CD rocks with great ballads, nice sax, and beautiful blending.This is one you want to throw into you CD or ipod and just sit back and enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Comes up with the goods
    once again. Boney James rules. Forget about classifying the music he plays. He does what he does, and he does it well. I read a few reviews, which I only use as guides, as well you should, and then I went ahead and parted with my hard earned cash. If you like his type of groove, then you know this type of groove, and make no mistake about it-IT'S A GROOVE.Highlights are many. Sure the purist of you out there will cry out for less vocals, and I understand where you're coming from. I was a bit concerned too, until I bought the disc and listened to it. Highly enjoyable. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Earth, Wind, and Fire Get Spectacular Compilation Treatment
    Earth, Wind, and Fire was one of the most feel-good, uplifting, influential soul bands ever, and they will always be remembered for their diverse songs and exuberant performances in which many members got up on the stage and danced and sang.
    5-0 out of 5 stars What a POSITIVE MESSAGE from the past
    Just listen to "SING A SONG" and try not to sing along in a falsetto voice! It never ceases to amaze me that EWF's message was one of positivity, self esteem, and was UPLIFTING!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection!
    I bought this CD about a year ago.It is a dynamic, excellent collection of Earth, Wind & Fire's best songs.They go from 1973 to 1981 with the hits and even included the heavily requested Reasons. When I first heard them in 1978, I thought that their 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1976 hits were all new, all off of one new album.But these songs from various years just showed me the massive impact they had in the '70s.The live band, the emphasis on horns and a complete band playing music and tearing it up.And funky songs like September, Serpentine Fire, Getaway, Boogie Wonderland and others. Maurice White's knew what he wanted out of this band and they're still doing it over 35 years later with live performances in 2006! Although I miss Maurice in the band, Verdine White, Philip Bailey and this other fellow are keeping his dream alive.Other favorites I like are Let's Groove, That's the Way of the World, the mellow After the Love has Gone and others.They chose a good 17 for this collection, and while it's not the most perfect, it fully compiles their success of hits and well requested songs! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Shame by Sony/Colombia!!!
    I am going to give WR 5 stars always.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Forcast: WARNING!
    With the greatest respect to the incredible Bob Beldon, Joe Zawinul, and Wayne Shorter, this Box Set should contain a warning.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A great collection.........but
    The truly great thing about this box is the focus put on the early WR and the post Jaco version of the band.Most best of collections skip either or both completely.Disc 1 which focuses on the very beginnings is tremendous.There are new mixes of "Eurydice" and "Orange Lady", an unreleased studio version of "Directions"....it just shows you how esoteric and great the original WR was.Disc 2 and 3 trace further evolution till the end (leaving out their horrid last album, which is very good).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stevie's Double Crowning Achievement!
    I'm one of those reviewers that rarely rates music that hasn't touched me in one way or another. So when I felt that I wanted to write a review for a Stevie Wonder album, I ended up struggling over which of his great releases I should review. I love ALL of his mid-seventies releases....most notably, "Innervisions", "Fullfillingness...", and, of course, "Songs...". I guess I finally decided to 'tackle' this one based on its historical significance to the art of Music. For one, Stevie was "coming into his own" as far as musical expression and social commentary within his songs. Other than the great Bob Marley and Marvin Gaye, Stevie was at the forefront of writing about the joys, pains, positives and negatives of Human exsistance on Earth...and he did it very well. Songs such as "Village Ghetto Land", "Pastime Paradise", "Saturn" and "Have a Talk with God" among others, were as powerful 'messages' one could experience through a set of speakers. Secondly, He was able to finally gain TOTAL control of his musical vision from Motown and Berry Gordy....even more so than Marvin had done with "Whats Going On"...and this TOTAL control shows most prevelant on "Songs" than any previous release leading up to this one(IMO). There's certainly a little bit of everything on "Songs"---- the joy of life on "Isn't She Lovely";black man's contributions to evolution in "Black Man"; World Love and Peace in "I am Singing"; the joys and pains of childhood in "I Wish"; Spiritual guidance in "Have a talk with God"; Desperation in the World's Ghettos in "Village Ghetto Land" , and even some "Props" to Mr. Ellington in "Sir Duke". One could literally go on like this for every song on this double album....Yes, very moving, significant statements indeed! As for the actual music and musicians, they are "all over the board" here (and Stevie certainly plays his share of the instruments, however, not as exstinsively as past albums). Every musician involved in "Songs" played exactly what each track called for, and, at the same time, still managed to put their 'mark' on these great cuts. The listener will be happy to find mellow, introspective songs...Upbeat, funky rockers...Spanish-tinged music....and even Stevie's brand of Fushion (Contusion)... Overall, A wonderful assortment of musical styles and genres mixed into one of the most important double LPs ever released. As a closing note, I am somewhat of a new-comer to this great artist, and yes, I am white. However, I feel this is one of a handful of artists that crosses/bridges ALL ethnic groups...weather black, white, yellow, or red. Please don't let the color of your skin (or Stevie's) stop you from experiencing some of the most important 'Art' ever produced. Strongly recommended, along with any other releases from this Genius!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Album that deserves all the acollades it's been given
    This album has been ranked highly in VH1 polls and Rolling Stone Polls time after time and it really deserves it.....
    5-0 out of 5 stars All-Time Great
    Stevie Wonder was and continues to be a once every few generations kind of genius!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth The Wait
    You may recall last spring Warner (or was it Rhino) was set to release a two disc Prince album named Ultimate Prince. The project was unexpectedly shelved, well a better term would be the release date was changed to TBA. As a reviewer, I had a review copy of the CD and had even posted a review, only to be told to remove the review. It was a good review too, but here is my second go round reviewing Ultimate Prince.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great compilation
    "Ultimate Prince" is the latest collection of Prince hits from Warner Bros. Compared to the other 2 currently available compilations: "The Hits/The B-Sides" (1993) and "The Very Best of Prince" (2001), "Ultimate Prince" strikes a healthy middle ground in that it caters more for fans of Prince's dance/club music.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Clumsy anthology
    Presumably the label is trying to cater to mid-range fans who have a Prince album or two but don't want to buy them all and who want more than a single disc hits collection. The way this is laid out though is confusing at best:

    4-0 out of 5 stars Prince delivers another solid album!
    I have been a major Prince fan since 1982 and it has sometmes been a bumpy ride( see "Come" or "New Power Soul", or better still, don't). But let's face it, in a career that has spanned 28 years now, this cat has been remarkably consistent and I'm happy to say that this album continues the positive momentum that started two years ago with the Musicology album and tour ( highest grossing tour of '04). "3121" opens with the funky title track with Prince using his old "Shockadelica" voice to sing harmony with his normal voice on the chorus. As on many Prince albums, this one opens with an invitation to a mind blowing party(like "1999" or "Jam of the Year"). You are invited to drink champagne from glasses with chocolate handles, the only catch is you can never leave. Next up is "Lolita", complete with 80's style synth runs that remind one of Princes old band, The Revolution. "Te Amo Corazon" is a sweet mellow groove that could probably be a hit for Enrique Iglesias or Marc Anthony. "Black Sweat" is probably my favorite here. A tightly controlled groove that keeps threatening to lose control but is held like a pit bull straining on it's leash. The push-pull tension makes for musical perfection. "Love" has some nice funky keyboard work apparantly from the man himself.( As usual, he does play the majority of the instruments.) "Fury" is another highlight. The title refers to hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and again has some really nice 80's/early 90's synth-like keyboards and some hot guitar runs. The grand finale is "Get On The Boat" with Sheila E. on percussion and Maceo Parker on sax. Prince throws in a few James Brown style "Good God" asides and calls Maceo's name right before his sax break in homage to the great one. Way funky and a perfect ending to a really satisfying album. By the way, this was Prince's first number one album since Batman seventeen years ago in 1989.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Sorely Disappointed
    I bought the cd Musicology and enjoy it thoroughly. I was excited to get the new cd. However, I find many of the tracks very strange and a little disturbing. (the first song kind of creeps me out.) I give this cd a 2 because I do enjoy 2 of the songs on the cd but I am dissapointed because I hoped for better.

    3-0 out of 5 stars let's see if this is it
    I like it. I listened it more than once. It caught my attention made me take notice of his new music.Made me feel like he did a few years ago when he still made really good music. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Dick Dale's surf-guitar provided the memorable title theme("Misirlou"), for Quentin Tarantino's 1994 smash, and although thatsound runs throughout the soundtrack (along with bits and pieces of dialog fromthe movie), this is a pretty eclectic bunch of really terrific songs.I don'tknow how it all manages to hang together, but it does (you might say the samefor the interwoven stories in the movie).Where else are you going to findChuck Berry, Maria McKee, Al Green, The Statler Brothers, Kool & the Gang, UrgeOverkill (singing a Neil Diamond ballad!), Ricky Nelson, Dusty Springfield, andthe Tornadoes (among others) one album? McKee's beautiful "If Love is a RedDress (Hang Me in Rags)" is a standout, partly because it's less familiar.One of the few soundtracks of the '90s that went into the CD player and stayedthere for weeks and months thereafter.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unmistakeably Tarantino
    No movie maker in Hollywood can be more relied on to put together a top quality soundtrack than Quentin Tarantino. Perhaps it is the fact that he hand picks his own songs rather than handing it over to someone in the music world to write a score, that makes them such a powerful part of his films.

    Okay, Prince's hypersexual image may drive you insane and back. No question it created some Contreversy. But no-one could get down and play dirty, hard-rockin' funk like Prince Rogers Nelson. This is, let us not forget, the man behind I Wanna Be Your Lover, 1999, Little Red Corvette, Let's Go Crazy, When Doves Cry, Purple Rain (his best tune), Kiss, Money Don't Matter 2night and a bunch of others. Purple Rain's also a must-have, so get that and this and party like it's 1999. Or whatever.

    this is michael in his hayday... when we were still tryin to get to know him as an artist and a person. he was at the top of his game when THRILLER was released... its still doing great today. i kno this is crazy but this is one of the few albums ever that if it breaks or scratches ill buy another one. i have owned 9 THRILLER albums!!! and im 22 years old.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Michael is pretty good
    I have always identified with Michael because I look llike him before his make-over plastic surgery. We have similar face. He made a very beautiful face after the make over. His talent has always been very good. He is such a great artist. I wonder why I could never afford such a beautiful face make over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars LONG LIVE "THE KING"
    This album was truly a MASTERPIECE. I mean 7 TOP 10 singles (3 of them #1), 8 grammy awards and multiple others, 3 years on the charts, and a spot in "The Guiness Book Of World Records" as The Largest Selling Album Of All Time. This album sold over 30 million copies when CD's didn't really exist and 2 decades later sales have more than doubled because people everywhere are still buying copies.

    Editorial Review

    Too many reissue compilations are content to merely slice 'n' dice familiar catalog choices in not particularly original ways. But this four-disc, 91-track trove of obscure '70s R&B and funk from Warner-distributed labels great and small argues there's still treasure to be gleaned from studio vaults--a five-hour groove-fest that's as interested in shaking booty as in opening ears. Even the genre's groundbreaking usual suspects (Wilson Pickett, the Bar-Kays, Curtis Mayfield, Earth, Wind & Fire, et al) are represented by selections that aren't immediately familiar, while Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin serves up a radically different, previously unreleased take of "Rock Steady." Still other stars contribute their sonic touches to some of the lesser-known cuts, as witnessed by the patent trippiness of Sly Stone alter-egos 6ix and Stanga on "I'm Just Like You" and "Little Sister," respectively; the stark, party-not-so-hearty contrast of the Mayfield-written-and-produced "Hard Times" by Baby Huey & Baby Sisters; and the Meters' version of "Tampin'," released under the moniker of the Rhine Oaks.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars a Fantastic Compilation
    often when Record Companys put Retrospectives with a Various Artists take on 70's Funk&Soul it's usually the same songs that you can hear daily on your Lunch Rush Hour Old School noon special. but this time Rhino pulled out alot of stops at getting this right. these Discs contain the Organ jams with strong punchy Horns, Guitar,Bass, keyboards,Drums&overall Vamps that are timeless which have influenced countless Artists in all styles of Music. the Bar Kays,Earth,Wind&Fire, Aretha Franklin,Curtis Mayfield&countless other talents are well represented here with material that showcases different regions of the Country. back in the day long before the Internet just like with Hip-Hop back in the day you always knew a Artist from down south all the way to back East,then in the mid-west&all the way Out west by there trademark Stylings&overall presentation.this is a Collection that showcases some great treasures still in the vaults.long overdue,but better late than never. enjoy the Funk.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Rhino Box Set
    Man, this thing is so awsome.I gotta say, I really dig what Rhino does with their boxsets."Nuggets" and "No Thanks" (covering American psychedelic/garage rock from the mid-Sixties and punk music from the late Seventies respectively) are both great sets."Nuggets II" is probably my favorite box set in the world, covering psychedlic music from around the world from the 60's.

    Jill Scott is just one of them artists where you can physically feel her passion through the speakers.This cd is one them masterpieces i couldn't stop listening to. This cd is relaxing and hypnotic my favorite is cross my mind, but have many other tracks you can't help to repeat!
    5-0 out of 5 stars musiclover....
    Jill Scott hands down is my favorite artist. I love many vocalist but her mixture of poetry and interest in love makes for some serious R&B songs. She is by far one of the best artist to date in my book. I dont think anyone can catch up to her level. She has a voice that grabs you and peotry that indulges you. Smooth isnt a good enough word for this lady.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Jill Scott All the Way!!
    This album, like her first, you can listen to straight through.Very beautiful musically crafted work! I struggled for awhile between this album and her first and I might like her first more, but it can go either way.This is a very strong album.I agree with the amazon editorial review in siting "Golden" and "Rasool" as strong album cuts. I must also include "The Fact is(I Need You)", "Spring Summer Feeling", "Can't Explain", the jazz, big band inspired "Talk to Me", "Not Like Crazy", and the list goes on!! Once again with albums that contain many strong elements (soft and strong singing, beautiful production which complements Jill's voice) it is hard to select a favorite or few favorites.Great album, Jill fans won't be disappointed!! ...

    It is difficult to get SOS Band CD's as most are out of print.This CD contains the best of SOS since the first and only other "Best of" CD released in the mid-90's.Tracks found on this disc not previously available are "SOS", the full version of "Just The Way You Like It", "Borrowed Love and "No Lies".
    3-0 out of 5 stars Robbing Me Of My Goodies
    The SOS Band has always been known for their funkiness and slow seductive quirks, but this collection really robs people of the full extent of the groups talents.I have The Best Of The SOS Band & The Greatest Hits.The Best Of The SOS Band is more of a comprehensive selection of songs than what The Greatest Hits offer.Don't get me wrong- this compilation of songs are good, but flowetically, it sucks.It jumps from Jam & Lewis to Siddig and from him back to Jam & Lewis and to me that is a real drag.Some of the songs are good, but let's face it- Jam & Lewis' material were a lot stronger than most.Even though most of their material was on the sugary side, but they manage to saturate the sugary beats with a hard bassline which gives them a funky edge.I am more partial to The Best Of than I am to this collection.Even though The Greatest gives you more of their unheard of hits, but the single and edited songs were a real pain in the ass to me.They should have gave both extended and single or edited version instead of them choosing what we think is best for us.Grade for this is: D- ...

    Editorial Review

    Maybe this music by Prince & the Revolution will never quite sound as,well, revolutionary as it did in 1984 (and nothing else has ever sounded like the extraordinary cooing and fluttering of "When DovesCry"), but it's a pop landmark in Prince's Artist-ic career. The hit moviewas really just a big-screen showcase for Prince to perform these songs (some ofthem in tear-the-roof-off "live" versions set in a Minneapolis club). I don't know why that warped sermonette introduces "Let's Go Crazy"(one thing you've got to love about Prince: he's always been weird), but somehowI'm glad it's there. Other highlights include the sexual scorcher "DarlingNikki" (with its crazy backwards coda) and that anthemic title tune. Don'tyou miss Wendy and Lisa, too? Read more

    Mr williamson please please get off the pipe!! It kills ya know!! MC Hammer ripped off Prince! People like Mr. Williamson need to be reminded to keep their opions to themselves, when they don't have a clue what they are talking about. This album is phenomenal!! Mr. Williamson please buy MC Hammer album, and listen to your hearts content, while the rest of us listen to the real thing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The very best Prince album
    There is no understating how huge this album was in 1984. All the various styles and influences of Prince's career intersected in this one album. From beginning to end, this stands as Prince's most unified, cohesive, accessible work. Many Prince classics are here, from "Let's Go Crazy", the ultimate party track, to "When Doves Cry", possibly the most perfect song Prince ever did, to the title track. The other songs on the disc are not merely filler, either. "I Would Die For U" was a hit song in its own right, and "Darling Nikki" is perhaps the most notoriously famous song on the whole album. Yes, "Darling Nikki" was the reason Tipper Gore got so hot and heavy into album ratings for children. Actually, it's not as erotic as most of Prince's earlier work, it's just Mrs. Gore never noticed until this. Anyway, this album equaled the record for most consecutive weeks at #1 on the album chart, and had two #1 songs and a couple more hit top ten. Of course, Prince has never equaled the impact or achievement he got with this album, and really there's no way he could. With the #1 soundtrack, movie, and single all at the same time, Prince was everywhere in 1984. While the album doesn't seem so ahead-of-its-time anymore, hardly a surprise 20 years later, the music is still incredible. I consider this Prince's finest work, and so very worth being in anyone's music collection. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    It's a pleasant surprise when a Hollywood sequel actually rivals the artistic success of its inspiration, but that's exactly what Dreamworks' second computer animated skewering of the classic fairy tale canon does with consistent wit and charm. It boasts a vibrant song-score (Harry Gregson-Williams' slyly humorous orchestral soundtrack is also available) to match, one that bristles with even more eclectic pop energy than the original, if not quite as many left-field surprises. There are takes on love with a contemporary edge from Eels and Dashboard Confessional, as well asmore traditional romantic ballads from Joseph Arthur and Counting Crows, while veterans Tom Waits and Nick Cave offer up slices of their own typically moody melancholia. Covers of Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For A Hero" (in a dry techno revamp by Frou Frou) and Bowie's "Changes" (with a cameo by the author himself lighting up an otherwise mundane version) are also featured, though neither reaches the loopy orbit of Antonio Banderas and Eddie Murphy trashing Ricky Martin's kitsch-iconic "La Vida Loca."

    Shrek 2 is a great movie and its accompanying soundtrack is nothing short of being superb as well.Frou Frou's cover of "Holding Out For a Hero" is pure auditory bliss with its techno swoops and swoons, and Jennifer Saunder's version is just as entertaining.Every song here is a pure delight.Shrek 2 is a soundtrack that can be enjoyed by anyone for its eclectic mix of varying genres.

    Editorial Review

    Whether with the groundbreaking group Rufus or on her own, Chaka Khan has one of the most distinctive and influential voices in R&B. She's able to wail at full emotive throttle or deliver a love song with nuanced jazz-inflected tones, and sometimes even do both within the same track. This 1996 collection gathers some of Khan's biggest and most beloved solo efforts. Included here are the classic tangy attack of "Ain't Nobody" and the turntable-enhanced smash "I Feel for You" (penned by admirer and recent collaborator Prince). There's also the anthemic original version of "I'm Every Woman," the moody "Through the Fire," and her 1996 collabo with Me'Shell Ndegeocello, "You Never Miss the Water." As all great vocalists do, Khan takes control of every song, breathing fire and life into the words and interpreting them without overpowering their meaning. One listen to Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars For Chaka Khan lovers...
    Hey--I really liked this CD, it gives a good overview of Chaka Khan's music in 16 short tracks.I usually don't buy compilations or "best ofs" because they usually don't have all the best hits, but this one does to me!I was a little girl in the 80s, and this CD is reminiscent of all the big hits like "I Feel For You," of course and stuff before that (a little before my time) and it just takes you through the whole Chaka era, to her now "jazzy" stlye, which also is great and totally her!
    5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Female Vocalist
    For me, Chaka shares the tile of Queen of Soul with Aretha.What an incredible talent!You can't go wrong with any song from Chaka - she has the ability to take a mediocre song and make it work.When people have asked me what my favorite song is - well, it's right here: What Cha' Gonna Do For Me is the one.Ain't Nobody is another treasure from Chaka.This is a very solid collection from one of the best female vocalists.Bar none.There is ONE song that would make this CD perfect and how I wish it was included - Sweet Thing with Rufus is another classic.Love Chaka.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Chaka Khan - what a voice !
    I love Chaka Khan - her album I Feel For You is one of my alltime faves.I remember listening to it in school and thinking how amazing her booming powerful voice was & wishing I was old enough to go clubbing...This is a good compilation of her best of, although many of my faves are missing.I love I Feel For You & Ain't Nobody - both classics.I wish This Is My Night, Destiny, Love of a Lifetime, Can't Stop the Streets (from Krush Groove) & Own the Night (Miami Vice) were on it...Maybe someday!anyway, this is a great collection to get to know Chaka's material from the 70s through early 90s.5 stars for Chaka, 4 stars for the missing tracks ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars "NUMBER ONES" REALLY ARE!
    Michael Jackson is still #1 to a lot of music lovers, and "NUMBER ONES" quickly shows you why! His vocal versatility and unique creativity cannot be denied. This CD has something for everyone, and "One More Chance" is at the top of the list. Jackson faves like "Billie Jean," "Black or White," "You Are Not Alone," "The Earth Song," and "You Rock My World" are also included for good measure, and this Michael Jackson effort may be one of his very best yet. Buy it; you'll be glad you did!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Curse Epic and Tommy M
    First, before I rip this album a new one I must say that I am a huge Michael Jackson fan/supporter and IF YOU WANT HIS GREATEST HITS YOU HAVE TO BUY ALL HIS ALBUMS :).Number Ones is a pathetic greatest hits collection.Most of the songs on here are cut short.Example: You Are Not Alone starts out with MJ singing on the first note which he does not do on the album version and it fades out way early.One More Chance (the only new song) is the worst song R. Kelly has written for Michael.It's not a bad song, but R. Kelly should have kept it to himself.Michael should have submitted one of his own songs.R. Kelly can write better songs, just look at Cry or You Are Not Alone.One More Chance has a one line chorus and it sounds like it belongs on an R. Kelly record.Another problem with this record is the name Number Ones.Most of these songs didn't make it to number one, in fact many didn't even crack the top 10.If you own all of the albums and you want the song one more chance, just buy the single.I own both, but most people shouldn't bother unless they care about a complete collection.This collection is a weak display of MJ's amazing talent.It basically contains radio versions of his songs so they can put more on the cd.I love michael and know that he is innocent.I can't wait for his new album.I think MJ released this just to fullfil his record contract.Now he can be free and actually get promoted :).

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection From The No.1 King Of Pop!
    As the first few weeks of 2004 are upon us, and I'm sure Michael Jackson will be hoping that this year will bring him better luck than 2003 did. Despite dominating the tabloids with his appearance, the baby-dangling incident and THAT Martin Bashir interview, Michael Jackson still remains the King of Pop. There's some people who are famous. There are some people who are superstars. There are some people who are icons - and then there's Michael Jackson. Arguably the most famous entertainer alive, Jackson's 30 years reign on the charts is unchallenged.Read more
