That's the Way I Like It: The Best of Dead or Alive collects 18 tracks from the androgynous British dance-pop outfit responsible for one of the '80’s most enduring club hits, “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”. Other highlights include a cover of KC & the Sunshine Band's disco classic "That's the Way (I Like It)," “Lover Come Back to Me," "In Too Deep," "My Heart Goes Bang,” and 1986's "Brand New Lover,” as well as the four extended/alternate mixes that populate the collections’ second half. Remastered from the original studio tapes, the anthology may not be exhaustive, but it’s solid enough for casual fans, and engaging enough to recommend to listeners with the false notion that Dead or Alive was a mere one-hit wonder.
Outrageous Ukrainian group Kazaky in December 2013 presented the second part of the album «I Like It», the original which was released in July.
According to the official statement of representatives of the group, the album was originally divided into two parts due to the fact that he carries two different moods and was recorded in various genres.
Participation in charity festival Life Ball, performance at the DIFFA Dallas, cooperation with Dsquared2 and Madonna - and it says a lot more about that Ukraine continues to win the hearts of millions worldwide.
A gifted musician, which musically always turns on "Aberrations". Ronnie Earl to rock gravitated in early years, later he moved to the jazz. His actual profession but still is the Blues. On "I like it when it rains" he demonstrated this for the first time clearly. An animated guitar that is unparalleled.
Because of the wonderfully written lyrics, and the intensity at which they are sung, Blues Buddha just runs away with this one. Who would of figured that "Better at Hello", a melancholy ballad, would be his strong suit. This is my interpretation of what "songs of the year" sound like.By Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro
This album is billed as 'acid jazz', and if that's defined by hard-funkin' horns combined with modern beats, then this is certainly it. But it certainly doesn't fall into the usual image of acid jazz, as being sort of mellow and ambient. This is anything but mellow; in fact, it's easily the most lively of the JB Horns albums. Part of the reason the formula works so well here is that the drum programs are fortified with traditional funky instruments like the clavinet and Fender Rhodes. And Maceo himself gets down on the Hammond organ on several occasions in addition to blowing his horn. I would definitely recommend this CD to any Funkateer who loves hearing Maceo, Fred and Pee Wee blow their horns, particularly if they don't mind a little of that hip-hop flavor. It's a little less organic-sounding than their usual works, so jazz-oriented Funkateers might balk at the album's overall sound. It's slick, but not so slippery that you can't get both hands on the funk.
