Masterpiece

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

This album is a masterpiece and I can see many are going to draw comparisons to "Shogun," and rightfully so as it has a similar feel yet somehow a little different as Trivium have improved on all fronts since then. All 10 songs are great. I don't know what Josh Wilbur is doing, but the trilogy he's produced for Trivium has been fantastic and this is the best one of the three yet! Heavier, faster, more progressive, varied. Every band member shines and Matt uses his entire vocal range here and you may even be a tad surprised by him on the odd occasion. I don't know what else to say. I'm mindblown, the album just exhudes quality, passion and fire and this could turn out to be album of the year.

So it is impossible to find member versions in South Africa but Raru is amazing because they have them and I was so excited to get this! The album came in a good condition. There was some slight scratches on the outer plastic but nothing too serious. Off course the delivery takes a few weeks which is fine because I was in no rush and they are sourcing it from overseas for you and you do not have to pay customs which is why this site is wonderful!

Forgotten Gem

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Elton John one of rock's greatest artists was never shy to experiment with other genres.
After a break from touring and writing following his chart topping run in the 70's he took a detour from his conventional work and collaborated with famous philly soul producer Thom Bell.
What today is known as the Thom Bell sessions was a trial run, setting the stage for a full soul album to be recorded at a later stage. Unfortunately for whatever reason this didn't materialize and by 1979 Elton went on to experiment with disco (Victim of Love) which flopped dismally.
What we have in the Complete Thom Bell Sessions are 35 minutes of fun blue eyed soul. It sounds poppy, funky and brings on a urge to groove to the rhythm.
I can't help but think had this album been completed and released in 1977, it would have been a hit. (A natural follow up to his pop hit Don't Go Breaking My Heart with Kiki Dee released a year prior)
The success of Mama Can't Buy You Love proves this notion which released as a single later that decade, reached #9 on the billboard.
Here's the biggest kicker though. In 2003 Are Your Ready For Love was remixed and re-released as a single. Not only did it top the UK charts, it topped the US dance charts as well. 25 years after it was recorded!

Well worth getting!

A Well-Balanced Return to Form

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

As a huge Daughtry fan, I was let down by the last two albums, "Baptized" and "Cage to Rattle." Neither album seemed natural for Chris and leaned heavily on pop elements and featured very little in terms of good old rock.

Good news is that he is now bereft of the influence of record labels and, as an independent artist, was able to freely create and express himself and while the result here is not perfect (there are times it feels like they play it safe even in the heavier songs), it's undoubtedly their best work since "Break the Spell."

With "Dearly Beloved," what we get is a return to rock and a good balance between more guitar driven songs and stripped down ballads. Kind of like "Leave This Town," but less effective.

This album surely has to please all the fans as the ingredients are all here and, of course, Daughtry's vocals are as sharp as ever.

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Positions is the long awaited follow up album since her massive hit, Thank u, next. It is surely an album worth having — especially owning it on a crystal clear coke bottle green pressing. This pressing is beautiful and suits the design of the album, definitely worth having as part of any collection.

Sub-par Return

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

My favourite punk band returns...but with an underwhelming album.

The first three tracks ("This Is Not Utopia," "Let the Bad Times Roll" and "Behind Your Walls") are awesome, but it becomes average from there onward, except for a proper classic punk style track called "Hassan Chop."

One of the weakest albums of the band's career. Sadly, after such a long wait, one would expect a bit better and the album ends before it begins.

Skold Returns to Roots

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Skold's last couple of albums have been nearly completely devoid of guitars in favour of a far more electronic approach. It worked nicely (after all, this is the king of industrial we're talking about here) but it did mean the songs were less "heavy."

For those like myself that prefer the approach of everything up to and including "Anomie," "Dies Irae" pleases in that it offers a good balance between guitars and electronics. There are a few songs on here that could easily have been included in releases such as "I Will Not Forget" and "Anomie," so Tim recalls his roots a little here while keeping the album varied enough to please not only himself but all his listeners.
