Beyonce – 4 – Columbia Records

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Producer: Various

Top Cuts: “Rather Die Young,” Love On Top,” “I Was Here”

Summary: On her latest chock full of hits global smash, Beyonce cements her superstar status by showing intense development as one of her generations powerhouse vocalists. Working with Kanye West, Andre 3000, Diane Warren, Ryan Tedder and Tricky Stewart, this superstar jets powerfully on two unique R&B pop wavelengths. Beyonce blossoms as a balladeer by tapping into a late 70′s early 80′s retro vibe that will please the older generation. And for her younger girl power type following, there’s the catatonic, beat happy”Run The World (Girls).”

James Lee Stanley & Cliff Eberhardt

All Woods And Doors

Beachwood Recordings

Producer: James Lee Stanley

Top Cuts: “Break On Through,” Light My Fire,” “Touch Me”

Summary: With quite the deceiving title, one might assume this is an instrumental cover album. This cool collective of Doors arrangements sheds new light on some of the band’s most respected tunes. Almost presented as ’60′s folk versions with stellar lead guitar work, many songs like “Break On Through,” Love Me Two Time,” and “Light My Fire” would be unrecognizable without lyrical content. This CD is great in so many way with an all star cast of Krieger, Densmore, Barrerre and more to create this great masterpiece for Doors enthusiasts.

In Flames

Sounds Of A Playground Fading

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Century Media Records

Producer: Robert Laghi

Top Cuts: “Sounds Of A Playground Fading,” Ropes,” “Enter Tragedy”

Summary: In Flames may have had a few member changes over their 18 year stint, but one thing has remained constant…these Swedes know how to rock and roll! And although the band have progressed away from their thrashier material, where thrash has faded, melody has blossomed. Infusing metal harmonies with melodic breakdowns has never sounded sweeter and “Sound of a Playground Fading,” is tangible proof.
