Madonna - Hard Candy (2008) Rapidshare Download



On Madonna's 11th album, Hard Candy, the queen of pop invites us to imagine her as a confectioner running a musical sweet shop. It all starts off well enough. Opening track Candy Shop is an agenda-setting call to arms, with Madonna promising a "special connection" and "plenty of heat".
The minimal, skittering drums are punctured by colossal stabs of synth, while Madonna purrs weak sweet shop-related innuendos: "Don't pretend you're not hungry, there's plenty to eat... I got Turkish Delights." Over and over again, she subsumes her pop sensibilities to their arsenal of clattering beats, hollered raps and over-fussy production.
On a ballad like Incredible, the overbearing din of an inexplicable electric guitar completely spoils an otherwise beautiful and delicate melody. It's almost like they threw everything at the wall to see what would stick, without realising it was a very sticky wall.
And that's a real shame because, if a handful of the tracks had been delivered to more producers with a touch more subtlety, Hard Candy could have ranked alongside Madonna's best.

Portishead - Third (2008) Rapidshare Download



It’s been nearly ten years since Portishead’s last release, 1998’s Roseland NYC Live, but with Third, they show that they haven’t missed a step as they deliver their darkest and most beautiful album to date.
Third is Portishead at their artistic apex. In the ten years of their hiatus, the musicians have matured tremendously, both as soundsmiths and songwriters, without losing any of the artistic vision or fire that initially brought them together. After so many years, Portishead still manage to make music that sounds like no one else, pushing their craft to artistic extremes and making the ugliest sounds beautiful without ever losing track of the music underneath.

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black (2007) Rapidshare Download

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black


Amy Winehouse's second album, Back to Black, is one of the finest soul albums, British or otherwise, to come out for years. Frank, her first album, was a sparse and stripped-down affair; Back to Black, meanwhile, is neither of these things. This time around, she's taken her inspiration from some of the classic 1960's girl groups like the Supremes and the Shangri-Las, a sound particularly suited to her textured vocal delivery, while adding a contemporary songwriting sensibility. With the help of producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, "Rehab" becomes a gospel-tinged stomp, while the title track (and album highlight) is a heartbreaking musical tribute to Phil Spector, with it's echoey bass drum, rhythmic piano, chimes, saxophone and close harmonies. Best of all, though, is the fact that Back to Black bucks the current trend in R&B by being unabashedly grown-up in both style and content. Winehouse's lyrics deal with relationships from a grown-up perspective, and are honest, direct and, often, complicated: on "You Know I'm No Good", she's unapologetic about her unfaithfulness. But she can also be witty, as on "Me & Mrs Jones" when she berates a boyfriend with "You made me miss the Slick Rick gig". Back to Black is a refreshingly mature soul album, the best of its kind for years. --Ted Kord

Ali Farka Toure - Savane (2006) - Rapidshare Download



Savane, the great African guitarist and bluesman Ali Farka Touré's final solo studio album, was recorded in his native Mali toward the end of his life, when the artist knew his days were numbered. He spent his last years in his home village of Niafunké, concentrating on farming and family matters, jamming with local musicians of an evening. This impassioned, roots-drenched, mostly acoustic valedictory finds the Maestro's stalking rhythms and high-noon-at-the-crossroads, dusty desert-to-delta vocals in no less than life-summing form. "Soya" (track 5) seems to stand still in a million directions, while "Hanana Soko" (track 9) features a searing njarka fiddle spinning delirious circles around its throaty accompanying percussion. Pee Wee Ellis (sax) and Little George Sueref (harmonica) each manage to make strong impressions while adhering to the groove at hand. Afel Boucoum, a talented younger musician who has been mentioned as Touré's most likely successor (as if such a thing were possible!), graces "Njarou," the last tune. The other players are also at the top of their game, as fluttering ngoni (a West African spike lute) riffs weave in and out and airy female vocals float like a breeze off the river Niger. There are reports that Touré senior sat in on his son's upcoming album and scads of archival material will undoubtedly materialize. But his unsentimental, voluptuously masculine, spirit-guided magic is captured at its best, for all time, in this magnificent farewell. --Christina Roden

Jamie Lidell - Jim (2008) - Rapidshare Download



Recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles and Paris, Jim takes even further what was started with Multiply, finding the balance between the spontaneous creativity of his raw ideas and the careful craft and polish of a great record. Jim will switch you on in the morning, move you on the dance-floor and take you down in the small hours. It s a bold, promiscuously diverse album, mixing up gospel grooves, sweetly sung and fiercely passionate soul, delicately moving ballads, thumping early R&B, synthed-up disco, and even a touch of hillbilly funk. I haven t tried to hide the influences, says Jamie Lidell ''This is the music I love.'' But, listen closely and you can hear Jamie Lidell moving in new directions, creating a sound and style that is entirely his own. --Amazon Review

Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple (2008)



If you've seen the video for "Run (I'm A Natural Disaster)," the first single from Atlanta based Gnarls Barkley's second LP, The Odd Couple, you'll get a sense of the juxapositions that run through the rest of the densely layered, emotionally complex album: 60's and 70's pop and soul bumping up against modern hip-hip and electronica; breezy, upbeat sounding music over dark, even menacing sounding lyrics and vocals. If the result is occasionally disorienting, it's also almost unfailingly intoxicating and just plain fun to hear. Even though the strongest material is weighted towards the first half, The Odd Couple is head and shoulders a better album than St. Elsewhere, and that album wasn't too shabby. Here's hoping that Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse, the two talented musicians behind Gnarls Barkley, are just beginning to build a body of work for their band. Standout cuts: "Charity Case," "Going On," "Run [I'm A Natural Disaster]" and "Surprise." D. Renville (Amazon.com customer review)

This is a fast paced, funk fuelled ride through the badlands of hip hop, dubstep, electro, rock and techno sounds. There's sexy sunny vibes at the opening when Plantlife meet Nina Sky's alluring vocals, Killer Mike's brooding beats meet the sparkling robotic electro of Cybertron, the old skool vocal vibes from Yazoo and Debbie Deb then classics like Freestyle's 'Don't Stop The Rock'. Throwing down the techno bass there's cuts from Hashim, Model 500, Aphex Twin and Cajmere before Solid Groove get sick. The beats come fresh and raw from Two Culture Clash and Ludacris, dirty latin tinged rhythms from Diplo and Gaiola Das Popozudas, with M.I.A.'s distinctive vocals. Heading to the close rock class from The Cure meets Outcastes furious hip hop, Le Tigre's grinding guitars, DJ Nasty's pulsing Hurricane, before winding down with Turbulance and the sweet sounds of Cat Power.

Radiohead - Kid A (2000)




After the massive success of their big breakthrough album "Ok Computer" one might expect Radiohead to sit back and try to capitalize on it's success with a clone album. Instead the band gets even more experimental with "Kid A". They drop much of the guitar out of the mix and instead focus even more on electronic music. The result is another winner that is a treat to listen to on a good stereo system or especially with headphones. From it's opening line "today I woke up sucking on a lemon", to it's closing notes the album is another testament to modern intelligent progressive rock. The band even ad a horn section to the mix in songs like "A National Anthem" to mix it up even further. Although "OK Computer" remains the band's masterpiece I like this one almost as well. It is another step forward in the evolution of Radiohead.-- Amazon User Review

Radiohead - In Rainbows (2007)


On the deliriously satisfying In Rainbows, Radiohead returns to a more straight-ahead (though subdued) rock sound. Much hubbub has been made about this record's innovative release. Radiohead allowed fans to pay what they wished to download fairly low-resolution tracks from the band's own website. Like so many innovations, it already seems funny both that it was such big news and that someone else of similar stature hadn't done it sooner. Some pundits were appalled that it took awhile to download the tracks if you tried to do it at the same time as thousands of other people, while others decried that the group was trying to kill the music industry (or save it). Little of the press seemed to focus on the record itself, which actually made sense because it was so entertaining and inviting, the most low-key album Radiohead has made to date. There's even a very straight-forward, simple, silly little love song, "House of Cards." It might be a bit lethargic, but the simple instrumentation of electric guitars, bass, and drums is lovely as heck. A handful of these tunes enchanted fans for years before finally being committed to computer "tape." This is particularly fitting as In Rainbows is the group's most "band"-sounding album since OK Computer. This is not a record that hits you over the head with how far this group is pushing the envelope; it's simply a phenomenal, well-crafted, and exciting album. As soon as it's done, you're playing it again. --Mike McGonigal
