5.0 out of 5 stars From The Get-Go..., August 31, 2006
"Hey hey mama, said the way you move, Gonna make you sweat gonna mak you groove..." is the opening line to an epic album if there ever was one.

I can not imagine how to sit down and write a song like a Led Zepplin song. To create a song with the charge of "Rock and Roll", or the lyrics to "Battle of Evermore", to create something like these epic songs is something that beyond me; and as for "Stairway" I think that's beyond any of us mortals. The popular "Stairway" had a seemingly unreal start when one day Robert Plant had a pencil and paper and Jimmy Page was just strumming when Plant described it as "my hand just started writing out the words. I just sat there and looked at them and almost leapt out of my seat." The song has gone on to capture immortality in the music world and is the most frequently played song in American history, which is pretty good seeing how it was never released as an actual single. But it is not just a Zepplin CD with "stairway" on it. It is has so much to offer in every track.

I have grown up with these songs, and if you've ever seen a Ford commercial or just listened to the radio, chances are that you have had these songs in your head one way or another even if you don't know who Led Zepplin is. But the one song that has always unrightfully gone in the shadows of "Stairway" is "When the Levee Breaks". I always personally found "Levee" as the strongest song in Zoso; but i dare not compare two songs of their caliber. But "Levee" brings this epic Album to an extraordinary close. After every listen, I find it hard to believe that there is only Eight tracks, because it sucks you into a world of enormous sound and mystery, and after you have listened to ZOSO whether it be the first time or if it's been too many to count, it leaves you with a sense that you have heard something special, done by a band with a sound that is larger than life.

Essential Recording. No exceptions.

4.0 out of 5 stars IF You're Deciding about the CD, August 31, 2006
This review is from: Stadium Arcadium (Audio CD)
I'm compelled to write because if you were actually wanting to decide about "Stadium" then you probably couldn't tell from some of these reveiws. There is SOO MUCH MUSIC in this CD (i'll be stating that a lot) and then come to find there is an entire OTHER CD! It was pleasant to find this for the price of just one disc too. JUPITER has the single you probably heard that brought about the decision, and there is much to love about JUPITER but there is just as much, if not more, awaiting in MARS.

FIRST, the bad. There are times you might find the song dragging out a little and wanting to skip to the next track, but there is SOO Much music and this can be cured by just not trying to absorb the entire epic in one sitting.

NOW, the good. There is some GREAT ear candy in this 2-Disc set. There are so many highs that it could be a greatest hits collection.

The Peppers have had a hell of a run and show NO sign of slowing down, although maturity is defiantley present. These albums can go from rock out points of dizziness, to slow relaxing melodies, and back again so that "greatest hits" starts to form in the mind again.

Anthony's lyrics are in top form, From smooth, to funky, to adrenaline pumping, to a marriage proposal, an sisters making babies with B&D blowtorches. His words alone deserve the Album multiple listenes. Frusciante has comeback with so much force it's still spinnin heads with that dynamite packed riff on "readymade".

I could go on but in short, this is a truley valuable Album with a small price, the band is in top form, there are definite toe-tapping, head-banging, love making songs to be heard and is really a milestone for a band in a class of it's own. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. It's so much music, in the best way.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's A Place That You Are Going...You Ain't Ever Been Before, August 31, 2006
This review is from: Sea Change (Audio CD)
OK, for just a minute or two of your time, you'll see these seemingly pointless 5 stars, but they REALLY mean something. This album is not one to just dismiss. It is not for the casual "Loser" or "Where It's At" fan, but for those who can find something besides the singles and the surface of Beck's music. This is defiantly for someone who understands that music is an experience, and in this particular journey it has changed the artist, and can easily be felt by someone who's a Beck fan or not.
A 'sad' album it may be, but never depressing. There is something that can't just be described as 'sad' inside the album. There's a voice that is calling out and heeding warnings to an empty room. It sings, and wails, and drifts in and out while it reminisces over the stains and tracks of the past that it wants to leave. It is a glance into human emotions that has rarely been captured, it takes you to an atmosphere so clearly painted by the artist and it is easy to get lost in. Everything in the CD starts to flow together, and it is done so effortlessly that it starts to pull you farther and farther out into its own world until you are isolated with the voice in the surrounding sea.
"Sea Change" glows with a haunting beauty that drips off of every verse and chord. Lyrics have so much power and imagery behind them to the point where they could become entire stories by themselves. There are countless verses that stay with you long after the music is over including 'Round the Bend' in its dark entirety and "In a sea change nothing is safe." gives me chills every time. Musically, every song is effective whether it be an entire orchestra that plays a building climax or an acoustic guitar that directs you to the end with some advice before you go. After listening to "Sea Change" I often feel relaxed and have to drift back into the world like I was in some compelling dream.

Essential Recording. Hands Down.

4.0 out of 5 stars After the Turntables..., August 31, 2006
This review is from: Mutations (Audio CD)
Beck is an original, but always diverse artist. After MELLOW GOLD and ODELAY, there was something else that was needed from him. MUTATIONS is the missing peice, now that Sea Change is said and done. Mutations may not be for the casual "Loser" or "Where it's at" fan, but if you find something else to Beck's music other than the surface and the singles, than MUTATIONS could be a valuable listen. It's more laid back, not so rough around the edges, and not so distorted to the listener. But what "Where it's at" did for Odelay, the haunting "Nobody's Fault But My Own" goes beyond for MUTATIONS. There are some great songs and although not as catchy as his singles, and even though you could listen to "Nobody's Fault" and "Tropicalia" by themselves; there is more in the sum of the parts than in the previous records and you can respect the album as a whole, which certainly says something.
