On my radio station they're doing what they call a Deep Dive into an album that is celebrating a relevant anniversary. Such is this one. Madonna (whatever you think of her now) pioneered Female Empowerment, Sexuality, and a lot of stuff that is now "normal" in today's music by female artists. Man, it's 30 years old, now! Still good as ever, for then, and now.
Enjoying one of my birthday presents - a cd soundtrack of a really neat animated movie...Small Foot. Great songs, recorded with great singers. And James Corden will surprise you no end, with his (sort of) solo! When you sometimes separate the soundtrack from the movie itself...wow, it's quite something to hear.
Anyway, get this CD! It's a great soundtrack with gorgeous orchestrations and lively beats to most (if not all) of the songs.
My personal ranking of the Metallica albums (with some spaces added for emphasis of drop-off)...
1. Ride the Lightning 2. Master of Puppets 3. Kill Em' All (As you can see, I prefer their earliest work)
4...And Justice For All - Don't get me wrong. I like this album, but I just don't LOVE it like some do. Its got an amazing top 4-5 songs but the rest is just garbled filler to me. 5. Hardwired...To Self Destruct - a very refreshing "return to form". Or at least, as strong a comeback a band could possibly make at this age.
6. Death Magnetic - certainly a vast improvement following the absolutely shittastic abomination on the ears that was the album prior. But even then, thats not exactly saying much. 7. Black Album - Not a fan of the turn they took here, as I would imagine was the sentiment of other earlier-Metallica fans in 1991. I think its a decent album musically, but obviosuly its not Metallica in hardly any way. Only song that I'll even actively go to listen to is Wherever I May Roam. Everything else is either, poppish, lethargic, or just flat out BAD.
Just realized how much I am missing George Michael. His "Father Figure" is on the radio, and I am suddenly remembering when and where I bought that wonderful CD. In San Francisco, the year it was released. Oct.1987. The name of the CD, was FAITH. I bought it at the (then) Big CD Store on Market St, up near Castro St. Great fond young gay musical memory.
