In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (2006 Remastered Full-Length LP Version)
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (2006 Remastered Full-Length LP Version)

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember The Anthem, July 1, 2014
“In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” by Iron Butterfly is one of those old war horses from the psychedelic era that rambles on for 17 plus minutes and was deemed deep and mind expanding at the time. It’s the kind of song that punk rockers looked to stick a safety pin through to burst the 60’s love and peace idealism. Looking back on the song with the space of almost a half-century, it is over indulgant, about 10 minutes too long, but that propulsive beat will still cause you to knod your head in rhythm. It’s the thump of the beat coupled with the chilling eeriness of the organ and sting of the guitar that makes you forgot the endless noodling that goes on for the middle 13 or so minutes that threaten to sink the song.

The album itself is really not much more than a collection of middling psychedlia that would long been lost to the era if not for the unforgetable title track. The album spent the better part of 1969 lodged inside the top ten although never rising higher than number 4.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are the classic four color Bic pens you remember from your school days. I hadn't used one of these pens since the 90's and the pens are much thinner than what I remembered them be. The thickness is about the the same as a Sharpie and you get the benefit of having black, blue, red & green which is perfect for those times when you need differentiate items while writing say for charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn Your Back On Mother Nature, June 6, 2014
"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" was the first single off Tears For Fears breakthrough album Songs From The Big Chair. The track has a breezy, laid back sounding nature that was in sharp contrast to the band's normally darker and harder sound. The guitar shuffles along a liquidy pace accented by airy synths. The band thought it didn't fit into the rest of the album, but their producer Chris Hughes convinced to put it on the album and the result is the band scored their first hit single in the US with the song peaking at number one for two weeks in the spring of 1985.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tell Me If I'm Wrong, June 3, 2014
This review is from: Am I Wrong (MP3 Music)
Norwegians Nico & Vinz serve up a smooth slice of cool pop with "Am I Wrong". The song has a stuttery paranoid vibe ala Goyte's "Somebody That I Used to Know", but with a heavy r&b inflection. It is smart pop music that is almost devoid on the charts these days, so it is refreshing to see this song climb up the Billboard Hot 100 into the top ten.

3.0 out of 5 stars Snaking Beat, June 3, 2014
This review is from: Turn Down for What (MP3 Music)
"Turn Down For What" by DJ Snake featuring Lil Jon has a decent beat with some cool old school scratching sounds, but it is more of a club anthem than a song you're going to listen to in the car or at home. The song would have been better off as a straight instrumental than throwing Lil Jon barking the lone line "turn down for what" intermittently throughout the song.

2.0 out of 5 stars Melody Runs Out, June 3, 2014
This review is from: Love Runs Out (MP3 Music)
OneRepublic's "Love Runs Out" appears on the reissue of their breakthrough release Native. It is a monotonous, repetitive thump throughout that is uninspired and leaves you not wanting to give it another listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots Of Problems, June 3, 2014
Ariana Grande is another in a long line of teen tv actress that have turned to a music career. Ms. Grande has a voice that sounds almost exactly like Beyonce's and she certainly can carry a tune. "Problem" is the first single from her yet to be released second album and it is a generic pop/r&b track that is just plain bland. An obligatory rap interlude from the it girl of the moment Iggy Azalea only makes you wonder why she is so popular.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic "Cookbook", May 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Any fan of Trader Vic's will want to purchase this cookbook published in 1952. It is more of a guide to cooking for men than a recipe book. There are some straight recipes with ingredients and measurements listed (you tell the book is old because some the recipes call for MSG), but the bulk of them are just short paragraphs on how to prepare things like scrambled eggs with cream cheese. The illustrations are great and as you would expect from Trader Vic, there are ample drink recipes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Go Home, May 9, 2014
This review is from: A Fine, Fine Day (MP3 Music)
Former Rainbow keyboardist Tony Carey scored hit biggest hit in the spring of 1984 with "A Fine, Fine Day". The song sounds like a Bruce Springsteen or Bob Seger knockoff. The song has swirling keyboards and heavy echo that sounds like a tribute band trying to come up with some original River era music of their own. Mr. Carey's vocals show why he was hired to be a keyboardist for Rainbow. The song is saved by the fact he does do a pretty decent job of clipping a Springsteen style sound. The song was the first of his two Top 40 hits, peaking at number 22.
