You are probably with a similar kind of partner but your fear has eclipsed your ability to appreciate him or her. Music can open our hearts like nothing else. In this open-hearted state, the fear distortions are washed away and we the truth of the man or woman who stands before us. Essence to essence, heart to heart, we embrace, and in so doing embrace the essence and heart of each other.
This is real love. Everything inside you will resist. Music can do that. Sheryl Paul, M. Phone and Skype sessions are available internationally for all types of transitions and ongoing counseling. She lives in Boulder, Colorado with her husband, Daev Finn , and their two young sons.
The first two singles This Is Life and Williams Blood are among the top ten songs of her career offering two sides of Grace: no-nonsense fierce on the former and sentimental on the latter. I love how this album manages to reference her classic Island sound of the 70's you know, the reggae shizz and then place her into the moody James Bond environments she owns.
Sure, it was all a bit Massive Attack , but it sounded fucking hot. Amazing Grace, yes. I should be honest that I either really love or really hate the songs on Out Of Control. It's pashernate! There are three tunes here that rank as some of GA's most "uber" work and further lift them over the pantheon of great girl groups and yes, they're leagues above those Spice "Girls". The three tunes: The Promise read my live blog of its premier , the moody masterpiece Untouchable it's their Apocalypse Now , okay?
These three scoot this album onto this list. Adele 19 Okay, here is the thing - Hometown Glory was the most powerful debut song I can think of in many years. A total jawdropper. The intro alone is worth the price of the album. The voice and the lyrics on 19 suggest a SMART young woman who needs only a guitar to tell her stories. Everyone crowed about Amy Winehouse. No No NO. Adele is the musical daughter of the great Billy Bragg. Adele called Chasing Pavements her "Celine moment" and it was- big, bold, radio ready.
I have great hopes for her as long as she lets her voice be the guide. Strings not needed here. Like a lost Jackson 5 album! The finale, Cosmic Journey , was a beautiful mindfuck of a closer. Really moving. The mass public may a dozen dyed roses, but I pick this dandelion. It did not live up to the title track, which is their finest song, bar Yellow.
Note: I actually did a review of this and never posted it. Maybe someday when things are slow. See 's Best Albums list. Posted by xolondon 14 comments: Email This BlogThis!

If it were up to me, I'd attempt some career resuscitation Well, I sort of hate Prince now, but he used to be my boyfriend. Another meh album from the band in Their previous disk title? No balls. The new Accelerate was a reaction to that, which is a recipe for doom. It tried too hard to be rockish and raw. We all know what needs to happen: they need to break up, at least for awhile.
I get the sense they're no longer friends, but business associates, albeit friendly ones. M Stipe needs to be challenged to carry out his own vision for a solo album. Having said that, if they stay together, Bill Berry needs to return. An album is due in and I could care less.
He needs clever art and videos to further define him for the post era. No more novelty hits tours: anyone who thinks Prince is still good need only hear the full length right-down-to-the-ground version of Little Red Corvette to know the inspiration is shot. Finally - and most importantly - Prince needs to stop antagonizing his fans - he has done irreparable damage with the lawsuits and threats.
A bitter purple pill. First, removed the chicken cutlets from your face, close your legs and stop being a craven cougar. Desperation is a respect-killer. You are not a boxer, your vajayjay is not a sugar bowl and, most importantly, you are not Lourdes. Madonna has succeeded all these years by confounding expectation.
Hard Candy represents the first time she really 1 repeated herself visually and musically and 2 removed herself from the artistic process. For her next disc - her only commodity is music - she needs to go deep and beautiful. One would hope a divorce would elicit some of the self-examination that made Like A Prayer and Ray Of Light such fine examples of commerce merged with art.
All Madonna albums need an expressive dance-the-pain-away moment, but The Rebounder needs to take her time and craft ten songs that offer something heavier than "watch my booty get down. And Lady, Steven Klein has become a tired, pisspoor conduit for your visual image. Divorce him too. Do not promote your album by saying months in advance that it's the best thing you've ever done. That sets up unruly expectations.
And if you extol the greatness of collaborations with Jon Brion and Stuart Price , make sure their influence is evident and that it extends beyond one song. And finally, stop gilding the lily. Perfect Symmetry was overbaked. The singles were unique and truly exhilarating, but the deep cuts tended toward same-iness in arrangements - a sound marked by fussy wall-o-noise arrangements.
I'd also suggest the fantastic Tim Rice Oxley write about very specific topics. He can be a bit vague. Janet Jackson. Three shit albums in a row: give up and become a mom. Really, spare us your exploding cooch and your dribbling lips and your ill fitting space-age spandex and fauxhawks. Truth is that Janet will return to Jam and Lewis for her next record. I've said it before, Janet needs to ditch that horny pug of a boyfriend and get politically active, writing songs about the "new agenda.
I did not intend to do something about The Minogue. I liked her last CD. Tricky Dick [I bet he hates that -sorry Richard] made a suggestion that, for Kylie's 11th album, she should decamp to her native Australia and produce cuts with indie-disco kids Cut Copy. I say the other half should be done with the Kylie-suckled Greg Kurstin. Two producers max and one writing moment in New Zealand with Pip from Ladyhawke to add an all-girl thrill.
Sounds like a plan to me. Posted by xolondon 15 comments: Email This BlogThis! Labels: Best 08 , RXolondon. December 26, Learn to get together. It's taken him almost two years to produce the record with Mark Ronson , so I'm hoping for greatness. It's all over HypeMachine and is pretty faithful, which is good or bad depending on your tolerance level for the original. Love the false start. If that ain't your groove, then go right back to their tear-soaked cover of The Smiths' Stop Me.
Let us say a little prayer that fame does not swallow him the way it overtook his friend Amy Winehouse. He is the real deal. Thanks to Arjan for catching this new single. Posted by xolondon 4 comments: Email This BlogThis! Labels: daniel merriweather. December 25, XO and his dancers.

Ten Reasons Sia Furler is XO's Fave Pop Star of : 1 She did it the old-school music biz method: this album is a grower and she promoted it that way, building the buzz over time, 2 her voice, 3 her voice, 4 her songs - holy shit! Musical Moment of The Year: Is there a question here? You nailed it. General Comment In a culture that is still primitive, paranoid, competitive, and survivalistic, vulnerability isn't something one arrives at by accident.
People have to work very hard to get there In "IPOTVM," she's simply giving to kudos to males who've put their boats out against the cultural currents as she has done, even if if we will never see all the chicken scratch in those journals she's filled over the years.
