5.0 out of 5 stars Good times, indeed!, May 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Good Times! (Audio CD)
As a rule, reunion albums shouldn't be this good! The fine folks at Rhino made the smart decision of hiring the right producer and songwriters who truly appreciate the Monkees' 50-year legacy. With full involvement of the three surviving Monkees in both the studio and the promotion side, I expected this album to do well, but I couldn't have imagined it would be the top seller on Amazon! A great album that ranks among the best they've ever released!

5.0 out of 5 stars Desert Island Disc!, March 27, 2016
If I can only take one CD title with me to a desert island, this would be it! I imagine that living on a desert island could be a bummer, but Monkees songs always make me feel better!

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable YACA!, May 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Recollections (Audio CD)
I've neer been crazy about YACAs ("Yet another covers album"), but this one I do enjoy. I'm a big fan of John Payne in both incarnations of Asia that he has fronted. My favorites on this album are "Court Of The Crimson King" and "Rock And Roll Star".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my "Desert Island Discs", May 12, 2014
This review is from: Astra (Audio CD)
Despite the absence of Steve Howe, this is my favorite Asia album. Not only is it highly-underrated, but it features John Wetton's most powerful vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you need to know about this set, and why it is a great purchase., March 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This boxed set is a reissue of the individual 24 kt. Gold CDs Audio Fidelity released several years ago. I, for one, am glad to own this, as I only began purchasing Audio Fidelity discs recently.

What you need to know:

The discs, mastering, booklets and tray liners are all identical to the original issues. The mastering by Steve Hoffman is superb!
The slipcases are no longer black, but feature the gold gradient that Audio Fidelity uses for their SACDs. Of course, they still say 24 Kt. Gold in the corner. That alone, makes them unique.
The discs themselves are not numbered, but the box is, (limited to 5,000 units).
The box may look metallic, but is still made of paperboard. The studs are embossed, however. It is very high quality.
The original numbered discs have been out-of-print for several years, and would run you $40-50 each. This set retails for $130.00, but Amazon has it for much cheaper. It may already be getting hard to find, so if you notice that Amazon has it in stock, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding debut!, February 12, 2014
This review is from: Girl on the Run (MP3 Music)
Sara’s “Past Tense” was easily one of my favorite releases of 2013. The performance and production on that 3-track single were flawless, so I was ecstatic to hear she would be releasing a full album in 2014. “Girl On The Run” includes those three tracks, along with seven terrific new songs. Sara has a great voice, and she is an excellent songwriter. I hope to see her perform these songs live in the future.

Everything about this 3-track single, from the performance to the production is flawless! Can't wait to hear Sara's first full-length album, "Girl On The Run"!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's 1987, all over again!, November 28, 2013
This review is from: Si Sauvage (Audio CD)
This album sounds like an album they might have recorded in the late '80s has they not broken up. And that's a good thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation, now bring on the albums!, June 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a real shame that Greg Kihn's music has been out-of-print for so long. Now that Greg has secured the rights to his entire Beserkley catalog, it will all be reissued soon. The first part of this reissue campaign in this excellent compilation. Every great song from the Beserkley years is here. Anyone who loves great '80s rock music, shouldn't pass up this collection!

NOTE: Greg had two more hits after he left Besekley, and those can be found on the very rare, and extremely pricey Best of Kihn.

EDIT: Every Greg Kihn album from his self-titled debut to 1986's "Love And Rock And Roll" were released on CD in West Germany on the Line label in 1987 and 1988. That is 11 CDs total! I have managed to acquire all of them. These are "flat transfers", and as such sound great! They were made to be played loud! They can be very difficult to find, however.

5.0 out of 5 stars The remarkable birth of Franco-Americana music, February 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mon secret (Audio CD)
As a Francophile, I was thrilled when I learned that Angela would be releasing an entire album of French-language songs. Now that it is here, I don't think that I could possibly enjoy it more. While the majority of the songs are familiar, as they are translated versions of previous recordings, there is also a sense of newness to them as the translations are not word-for-word. Translating English-language songs to French is very difficult as the translations must rhyme, yet still match the timing and rhythm of the music. Both the French and English translations are available on Angela's website, and it's fun (and even educational) to read along.
"Mon Secret" contains three new songs, "La Mer", "Bien Aimé" and the title track. "Mon Secret" , the album's opener, perhaps sets the tone for the entire album. In it a secret is revealed, but remains that way because of the language barrier. An object's true nature may remain hidden, unless we take the time to see it. This is an album that should definitely NOT be played as background music. It's meant to hold your attention, and demand that you listen not only to the authentic instrumentation, but become enthralled with every nuance and inflection in the vocal delivery.
"La Mer" may sound familiar, as it borrows the music and melody from "River Jordan", but the lyrics have been changed (for the better), while retaining the spiritual feel of the original. "Bien Aimé", A strikingly beautiful ballad, just may be Angela's finest work yet. Angela's breathy vocal, combined with the exquisite lyrics and melody, form the essence of the song, which is love in its purest form.
I hope that this album will touch your heart like it has touched mine, and we will hear more French-language music from Ms. Easterling in the near future.
