jm, where the light is

(no subject)

Bought three albums today:
1)Grand Theft Auto Vice City O.S.T.-Volume 5: Wildstyle Pirate Radio
I bought this album with the intent of listening to only one song on it. I didn't know what the title of it was, but I knew it was awesome when I listened to it on the game. It turned out to be "More Bounce to the Ounce" by Zapp and Roger. The entire cd is a worthwhile buy, however, you have to be a fan of the genre (80's breaking hip-hop) or else the beats will become tedious and repetitive. The commercial tracks at the end are hilarious. Listen to these: Zapp and Roger-"More Bounce to the Ounce", Hashim-"Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)", Run DMC-"Rock Box"

2)The Very Best of Kleeer
As far as I know, only one of you reading this will know of Kleeer. If you want to know more, their entire biography is printed on the booklet. Maybe I'll read it on the shitter someday. Overall, a good cd for fans of the genre. Kleeer is similar to The Gap Band in terms of funky sound combined with the token "funked" ballads. Good cd. Very danceable. Listen to these: "Tonight's the Night (Good Time)", "Tonight", "Take Your Heart Away (New Edit)" Porno track: "Intimate Connection"

3)Ocean's 12
As expected, totally awesome. David Holmes is a musical mastermind. I wanted to buy more of his cd's today, but was unable to locate them for some reason. Anyway, the cd is genius. It's a totally different feel to the first soundtrack and I cannot guarantee enjoyment if you liked the first. I like both however and I think they compliment each other nicely. "Twelve" definitely has the European influence and it creates a great vibe. It's got a good mix of mellow songs and upbeat songs. If the music caught your ear while you were watching the movie, the soundtrack is for you. Listen to these: Roland Vincent-"L.S.D. Partie", David Holmes-"7/29/04 The Day Of" (definitely one of the better songs of all time), David Holmes-"Three 8 Bar Drum Loops [Hidden Track]"
