Music samplers can often be interesting, as it's a chance for artists to showcase their work. In the case of this alternative rock Community Music Sampler album, it's a good one. The Community Music label is tied into the well established Vagrant Records, an indie rock label based in Los Angeles, and has been around since it was founded by Rich Egan and Jon Cohen in 1996.

1. So I Turn, by Aaron Embry, is from his debut album "Tiny Prayers," and a good intro to this album.
2. Truth, by Alexander & The RZA. This was featured during the season premiere of "Breaking Bad" on AMC.
3. Drop, by Cornelius. Water running and birds chirping, and a good track rrom the artist's album "Point."
4. Give Me A Sign, by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Old school troubadours and poets.
5. For Marlon, by Soko. Unique personal and beautiful semi-narrative from her album "I Thought I Was An Alien."
6. Boxing Day, by Letts & Rocco Deluca. Rocco DeLuca & Christian Letts from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
7. Raven's Song, by Aaron Embry. Good piano solo with vocals from his new album "Tiny Prayers."

The seven tracks here run a total length of 26:16, and Soko's offering here was a pleasant surprise. But the real standout tracks here are from former Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes pianist turn soloist Aaron Embry. The first and last tracks from his debut album "Tiny Prayers" really make this sampler worthwhile. But don't take my word for it, it's a free sampler, so download it and see what you think.

Amazon sent me this list of musical performances that was free to download on the Amazon Cloud Player, so I downloaded it.

Almost all of the selections were of the type of music that I like. Amazon knows my favorite music styles and does a good job of sending me selections to choose from. This one was right on!

I enjoyed the eclectic selection and for a free sampler it's a great deal. Some of the songs were not to my taste because they became more repetitive sounds similar to Chinese water torture than music. However, overall the sampler was good for those interested in expanding their music repertoire.

I found two interesting tracks in this collection, and I deleted the rest. I'm in the habit of downloading sampler 'alternative' albums. By far, most songs are deleted almost right away. It's very very rare for me to hang onto new songs.

I'm a fan of interesting lyrics or (rarely) engaging composition, and this album has one of each.

Track 5: Soko's song "For Marlon" feels like it was torn straight from her private diary. It's so open and honest. You won't find much of a hummable tune here, but the words are hard to ignore. It's a keeper for me.

Track 3: I like "Drop" by Cornelius, but I hate that I like it. Here's what I like - the ongoing water sounds in the background are weaved throughout the melody in such an original fun way. So cool. There are some lyrics here sparsely woven in among the tune and I hate that I have no idea what the words are. But the composition is really interesting. Keeper.

I didn't find the lyrics to the other songs on this demo collection to be engaging. Admittedly, I despise repetition, and when I hear it, I turn my ears off. The rest of these songs felt less creative, and I deleted them from my playlist after listening to them just a couple times.

It was actually better than I expected. Free music seems to be one side of the spectrum or the other...either really good or really not and I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for offering it to us! :)

Great mix of sounds I probably wouldn't have found alone. It was recommended because I downloaded an Edward Sharpe and Co song. Great selection with good breadth that will get your feet stompin'.

Every song on this compilation is beautiful! I will search out more works by most of these artists, but I especially loved the 2 pieces by Aaron Embry.
