Madonna’s Electronic Rampage!

7 05 2008

I was looking online to get her song “Hung Up”, so I decided to download the whole album instead (Confessions On A Dance Floor) over my dial-up connection.

So, it took about ~10 hours to finish. But was it worth the wait?!?! HELL YEAH!!

This album defines a whole new era for Madonna (been following her news since 1998), it’s 90% Electronic music with some rather mild vocals (which is a first, considering Madonna is classified as a Pop artist). So, it is closer to “Vocal Trance” than Pop.

I couldn’t believe my ears, the music production is just off the hook. Every track is structured in a very unique way, making the whole album so interesting that you can’t skip any of the tracks!

The “Get Together” track is fantastic, the closest to Trance in that album.

“Isaac” is a milestone. Exotic and mystic eastern touches sends shivers down my spine each and every time I listen to it. Two thumbs up!

I like it that Madonna is trying new styles of music, which ultimately is getting her even more success as a 50 years old female-singer. Way to go Madonna!

I’d highly recommend you get the “Confessions Tour” DVD, as it stretches the “Madonna Experience” even more.

So, to all the Electronic junkies, go buy that album, you won’t be disappointed. You have my word.





What About Michael Jackson?!?

23 04 2008

Michael Jackson has had a great influence in my life ever since I started listening to his songs back in the ’90s. I am truly amazed and shocked by this man. I know how most of people judge him by his looks and his trial history, but I know there’s much more humanity in this man that probably exceeds our own levels.

And when they say he’s a legend, I just know HE IS. I’d say he’s a legend because of his professionalism and dedication, his lyrics, shows, choreography, and music is just unmatched. And I’m yet to see such a great talent in any other artist on the scene today.

Also, it’s great to know about his rather unknown songs. Songs like “Smile”, “Little Suzy”, “Childhood”, and many others. Those songs are truly inspirational to every human being. Especially when you notice the special treatment Michael has given them. He’s so convincing you know the words are coming out of love from his heart, not out of the greed for money.

I’m not saying he’s the perfect man. He has done some mistakes, but then again, who doesn’t?! The very special and delicate details of his life displayed by the media are nothing – to me- more than a cheap distortion to the image of a great man, a great person, and last of all a wonderful human. Those details are his own damn business, and I don’t have to say anything about them. What matters to me, are the actions. He has a history full of donations and aid to charity organizations, and he spent lots of money into his “Heal the World” project. Actually, it’s more than satisfying to know that he has dedicated some of his greatest songs to the earth and to the people all around the world. Something that has nearly disappeared from today’s albums.

So, what about Michael Jackson?? I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON!!
