Record warped

Reviewed by on

I love this album, but when I received the vinyl, it was visibly warped, as though it had been left in a hot environment. This wasn't the case with the other vinyl in my order. Not a very good sign for vinyl fans.

Disppointing and tinny.

Reviewed by on

Though generally good value, the quality of these recordings are disappointing. On disc 1, for instance, though orchestral transcriptions of various classics were fashionable in earlier decades, the Mitropoulos versions of Back & Chopin are clumsy ( with a thunderous Chopin "nocturne" that would wake a rhino ) , The sound is tinny, and sometimes it sounds like a Salvation Army band rather than a major symphony orchestra. on disc 3, the Berg violin concerto is horrid. The Saint-Saens piano concerto and the Mahler are more enjoyable.

Lorde here to stay

Reviewed by on

If you thought Lorde would just be a one hit wonder, you are sadly mistaken. Yes, she took a while to release her 2nd effort, but it has been worth the wait. Although "Green Light", the first single has not reached no. 1, it certainly does not mean the album has no gems on it. Several reviews has given this album much critical acclaim, already mentioning it as one of the best of the year, and its no lie.

There are quite a few standout tracks like "Sober", "Liability" and "Perfect places". But my favourites has to be "The Louvre", "Sober" and "Homemade Dynamite". But the true showstopper for me is the track "Writer in the dark", which has a Kate Bush vibe to it. I just love that track. So, ok, I basically listed the entire tracklist as my favourites. It says a lot.

My prediction is that Lorde's Grammy collection will definitely grow next year!

A very good solo debut

Reviewed by on

Harry Styles has definitely decided to leave the boy band pop sounds and went into an Oasis/Bowie type of sound. This sound is evident in songs like Kiwi and Sign of the times.

My favourite track of the album is of course 'Sign of the times", which is just wonderful. My 2nd favourite track has to be "Woman" without a doubt.

Expect this album to stay on the charts for quite some time. I wont be suprised if Harry gets a few Grammy nominations with this album in 2018. Might this be the new Justin Timberlake for the rock genre? Time will tell, but this is a good start.

Nothing short of magnificent.

Reviewed by on

Barcelona by Sam Lardner is a CD that must be listened to. Then listen again, and again and so on. An absolute masterpiece. As a writer and recording artist, I admire his talent and the talent of all the players on this album. Great songwriting, great production, great performances and an overall great experience.

An album that needs more love

Reviewed by on

It's unfortunate that most Afrikaans artists like Bouwer are overlooked in favor of the more mainstream. Bouwer has been making excellent music now for many years. First as one half of the Dans Dans Lisa Duo, and now as a solo artist. This album didn't wow me initially but it's one of those that slowly grows on you the more you listen to it and after a couple of months you find yourself singing along to the tracks and enjoying every song.

It's a polished production but sadly this will be overlooked just like Die Melktert Komissie was.

Great Iron Maiden

Reviewed by on

Must agree. The Book of Souls is one of Maidens better albums, especially after the previous disappointing album (Last Frontier).

The product itself is also impressive, the limited edition is a must have for any Maiden fan.
