4.0 out of 5 stars Broken, But Still Strong, June 29, 2016
This review is from: Unbreakable (MP3 Music)
It surprises me that there are still some singers that have been more unsung, than really soulful on radio. Unfortunately, Chrisette Michele has been one of those songstresses that does deserve more credit because of her soul from the voice alone, but somberly she has never gotten it, in the severe overexposure of others like Rihanna and Beyonce' Knowles, whom are more products than people. Hard to believe that it has been a decade since she came out of the bloom with her debut album, I Am, and she still has had better music than most of the jokes on radio today. Sadly, Chrisette has such a beautiful soul but she still never has gotten the credit she deserves with her work. Her latest single, tries to show that Chrisette is going for a more modern R&B sound that really does work in her favor, where she has had several songs from the past few years not work in her favor. Unbreakable, the lead single from her 5th album Milestone, is short and simple but shows she is still making better songs than what is out there in radio today. This is a nice download if you have followed Chrisette Michele for the past decade, and if you really enjoy her work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surf Dog, June 28, 2016
There are so many people that really look for the right internet browser, to meet all of their needs. Unfortunately, it can be more of a choice between
finding what would be the right board to surf while you are navigating the internet. Mostly, you really do have choices. You can honestly try Microsoft and their internet browsers, like the new Edge internet browser for Microsoft 10, or you can try other browsers that have been strong for years, but not really recognized anymore. I have used Google Chrome, and it has worked strongly while I surf the web. But for years I also tried Mozilla's Firefox browser, but it has also worked well for a long time. It does a good job filtering and protecting pop-up ads, while you do surf the net. But honestly, it has lost a lot of momentum, and unfortunately there have recently been a few setbacks in regards to the browser. Not just that, but there have been some problems where I can't go to some search pages, where I could flawlessly go on it with Microsoft Edge. Overall, if you want a nobly faster internet browser, than you would want to try Google Chrome, which works well. But you could also try Firefox and see what develops.

3.0 out of 5 stars Secure, But Not Strong, June 27, 2016
There is no question that so many people with wanting a brand name security software for al of their needs. Unfortunately, when getting a security software, whether it is for filtering on social media sites, or making sure that your computer can run smoothly without any pop-ups ads or spam. Trying to find the right one can be more of a challenge to keep your computer running smoothly and thoroughly. I have tried numerous brands of security software, and almost none of them really do the job well, with only a handful of very few exceptions. McAfee which used to be one of the leading brands in guarding over your computer. Sadly, they just haven't been considered a name that can be trusted anymore. Their 2016 Antivirus security software is alright, but unfortunately it doesn't safeguard your laptop or tablet from any versatile damage. Also, it takes up so much space on your computer's hard drive, where you really don't have features from strong scanning from spyware or other hidden Trojans. I really found this not to be worth the money for only a year's worth of use. I can honestly get better from other brand names that have been not even recognized as strongly like Bitdefender or Vipre that have worked more flawlessly on my laptop. McAfee's antivirus might be cheap, but it doesn't pack the punch with real versatility.

3.0 out of 5 stars That Old Heart Wasn't His Yet, June 26, 2016
This review is from: This Old Heart Of Mine (MP3 Music)
When it has came down to rock singers that have honestly been legendary, we really don't have a lot of artists that do speak at the soul of the voice alone. Rod Stewart has been one of those entertainers that has not only had excellent longevity, but when he does a song, written by him or from other songwriters, the results have been very strong. But when he came out in the 1970's, after leaving Mercury and setting to leave The Faces, Rod had to run a whole different course in his soul. When he released Atlantic Crossing, it was a new beginning for Rod musically and professionally, as a soulful blues, rock legend. But some of his covers back in the 70's didn't have the strike he brought years later. That came true with This Old Heart Of Mine. His rendition of The Isley Brothers classic in the 70's really wasn't Rod then as was with songs like Stay With Me and later with Do Ya Think I'm Sexy. If you wanna better version of this song, listen to when Rod recorded it with the great Ronald Isley from 1989. With that version, you really do get your money's worth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be Afraid Of This Ghost, June 26, 2016
There are sometimes songs that are worth being remixed and sampled that they are better later on. But in the case with covering a song today, it can be as bigger or smaller than when the song had originally came out. Fall Out Boy has had a nice return to the industry a few years ago with Centuries and Uma Thurman. But when I had heard that they were going to do a remake of a classic movie song, I was honestly not impressed with what I had heard. In fact, it sounded much cheaper than when Ray Parker Jr. was accused of stealing from Huey Lewis & The News's hit I Want A New Drug back in the 80's. Fall Out Boy's version of the Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid) is honestly one of the cheapest remakes that sounds much worse than what I had first heard years ago. It is not only a poor remake, but definitely is one of those songs that you can easily say, "Boy, did I waste my time on this song!" The guys from Fall Out Boy did better covers before, like their rendition of Michael Jackson's Beat It several years ago. You're better off downloading the original, or the original sample from 1984. This version is definitely not worth the money!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dammn Janet, June 25, 2016
This review is from: Dammn Baby (MP3 Music)
It has been quite a year for Janet Jackson. Musically, she has hit a good return with her independent release, Unbreakable, after being on numerous labels that haven't given her the stronger support she showed for. But also, Janet also decided to delay touring for another reason, finally becoming a mother for the first time in her late 40's. After the massive failure of Discipline, but also having a few tricks up her own sleeve. She has been cautious about making new music again, but she showed that at the beginning with No Sleeep. But her second single has been more about the rhythm than her voice. Dammn Baby, the second single from Unbreakable, isn't a bad song by the rhythm. The downside is that Janet uses the voice box a little too much and the song, and you really don't hear her natural, soulful voice on the song as well as it could've been displayed. Still, it is one of Janet's better songs she had came out with in a long while. But still, if you're new to Janet Jackson's music, and never heard a song of her before, then you'll want to go to one of her more powerful albums like Janet or Rhythm Nation 1814.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stranger In Death, Lonely For Life, June 25, 2016
This review is from: Stranger in Moscow (MP3 Music)
Many people have all thought of Michael Jackson in regards to his dance songs like Billy Jean and Beat It. But when it has came down to his ballads, he has been considered more underrated than brilliant. Considering nearly all of his own ballads are not recognized as heavily on radio today. Only just one or two of those songs like Human Nature and Man In The Mirror are still played today, just as strongly as they have back in the 80's and 90's. Hard to believe it has been 7 years since Michael Jackson tragically died in a death the world couldn't have imagined. When I think of how empty Michael Jackson had been with his world around him, I do think of Stranger In Moscow from History Past, Present & Future Book 1. The song is definitely very soulful and intimate through Michael's eyes on how he was abused and dogged by the press and the media, as well as all the time he was personally accused of being a child abuser and pedophile, which demoralized him for his later years and drowned him to death. It is a very touching song that still ignites from the soul, and worth listening to for any die hard Michael Jackson fan, young and old alike.

These are good bandages. What I am so upset by is that there are only 8 in a package, compared to their other packages. It really is too bad Curad didn't think of this and charged too much for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond 1990, June 24, 2016
This review is from: 1990x (MP3 Music)
It has been a very long time since Maxwell made a impact with making deep music. When he released his 2009 album Blacksummers' Night, it came at a time when we were going through a tragic death in the world, with the loss of Michael Jackson. His work coming back in the music industry, after a seven year wait has been more of a shocker, but honestly it has been worth it. Especially when the R&B music industry has been more diluted with overexposed artists like Beyonce; Knowles and Rihanna that have made it more like it is garbage than brilliance. But for Maxwell, when he does a good song, it is worth listening to. Even if it is a surprising sample that is better than what radio sounds like today. 1990x, the second single from Maxwell's 2016 album, black Summers' Night is very soulful and intimate from his sensual and sophisticated voice. The song also takes on a Michael Jackson sample of his lesser-known song Heaven Can Wait from 2001's Invincible brilliantly. Maxwell really samples the song very well, and takes it more in a soulful simplistic direction. I was honestly very impressed, because it sounds better than the weights Jackson made for his song to sound like from years ago were not as brilliant as Maxwell makes of his washed-up song to a tune that meets Maxwell's heart so nicely. This is a real treat for die hard Maxwell fans, and for anyone that never heard his music before.

Song: B+
