Nick Cave is an artist who has never shied away from exploring the darker side of the human experience, often in broadly gothic strokes on his early albums but with a growing degree of nuance and compassion as Cave and his work matured. But a very real and deeply painful tragedy was visited on Cave while he was working on his 16th solo album, Skeleton Tree. His 15-year-old son Arthur Cave died when he fell from a cliff in July 2015, and while the writing and recording was already underway when the youngster suffered his accident, the grief and pain of loss Cave felt is palpable throughout this album. Skeleton Tree is relatively modest in scale – it runs just 40 minutes, the cover artwork is minimal, and the music lacks the dramatic, grand-scale arrangements of Cave's albums of the 21st century…

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. This wonderful little gem features pianist Jessica Williams in trio on a set of six originals, a couple of pieces by Thelonious Monk, and one each by George Gershwin and Irving Berlin. What makes the recording so appealing is Williams' exquisite sense of rhythm and stunning technique, and drummer Kenny Wollensen's outstanding drumming. Williams uses both hands across the whole keyboard. Her style is instantly recognizable, as her bold and confident strokes and ability to move rapidly contrast with a sometimes delicate approach.

Vangelis - Direct (1988) [Re-Up]

Vangelis - Direct (1988)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 405 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 179 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Progressive Electronic, New Age, Neo-Classical | Label: Arista | # ARCD-8545 | Time: 01:03:21

The CD release of Direct includes bonus material – which fits the flow of this intense and dramatic offering – not included on the cassette or vinyl releases. Like most Vangelis, this defies categorization. It has strong elements of rock & roll, symphonic synth ambience, and new age instrumental aspects. At the same time, the bold synthesizer strokes and washes fit the Berlin school of electronica. Given Vangelis' proclivity for soundtrack work, it is no surprise that this disc sounds like great film music. It is a great CD that will appeal to many different audiences. Fans of Kitaro, Deuter, and Constance Demby will like this disc.

Like any Ryan Adams album, Love Is Hell comes with a back-story, one that is carefully calculated to construct the enfant terrible's self-myth. Love Is Hell was intended to be the official follow-up to 2001's Gold – the album that was not a collection of demos (that was 2002's Demolition), or the recorded-but-shelved albums 48 Hours or The Suicide Handbook, or even his alleged song-by-song cover of the Strokes' Is This It…

CD date: Apr 18, 2006 | Naive

The concertos included in Enrico Onofri’s collection for Naïve constitute the first volume of Vivaldi’s violin concertos in the Tesori del Piemonte series; the booklet lists the release as Volume 30 in that series, but the jewel box identifies it as Volume 29. Two of the concertos, RV 208 and RV 234, appear in Viktoria Mullova’s collection on Onyx 4001, with Il Giardino Armonico, an ensemble with which Onofri has also been associated. Whereas Il Giardino Armonico begins the “Grosso mogul” with bow strokes resembling crackling gunshots, the Academia Montis Regalis produces more insinuating, less percussive sonorities. But Onofri’s boldly slashing entrance commands greater attention—and holds it, despite his frequently whining tone production—through the recitative-like slow movement with its swirling figuration and the finale’s stunning cadenza (there’s one in the first movement as well). The Concerto, RV 332, published in Vivaldi’s op. 8, bears a similarity to the others in Naïve’s collection due to its cadenza-like figuration and its recitative-like slow movement. Onofri makes the most of its virtuosic possibilities.

Born in the U.S.A. is an album painted in big, broad strokes. But it was still too subtle for some–namely politicians who tried to tap the title track as a jingoistic anthem when it is in fact a bitter diatribe by a Vietnam War vet whose country forgot him. The rest of the album is a glorious grab bag of radio-ready populist anthems–his best display of pure pop songwriting ever–including "No Surrender," "Dancing in the Dark," "Bobby Jean," and "Glory Days" alongside more circumspect numbers such as "My Hometown" and "I'm On Fire." It's not true that there's no arguing with success, but in this case Springsteen's widespread acclaim was warranted. With Born in the U.S.A., all those predictions from a decade earlier–that Springsteen was the future of rock–had come true.
