26 nov 2008, 22:02 av HelenWheelsI was going through my CD's last night, and I found Driving Rain wedged between Cheshire Cat and Dark Side of the Moon. I bought it when I went to see him in Quebec; it was nine p.m. and I was desperate for a new CD fix. Now, here in Sudbury I usually don't get my grimy little paws on McCartney CD's other than the ones I have- and so I didn't hesitate to pick up this CD. I think that I listened to it once, when I first bought it. So, I popped it into my computer and listened to it.
"Lonely Road" is a track I've heard before- I have it on his Back In The U.S. and Back In The World CD's. When he played it live, however, he made it sound somewhat... happy, I guess. I listened to the original recording and it sounds a heck of a lot different.
Keep in mind that this was his first album released after he lost his wife, Linda, in 1998 due to Breast Cancer. This album is almost a story- starting it with "Lonely Road" is a depressing beginning, but songs toward the end such as "Your Loving Flame"…

29 jun 2008, 22:16 av margybeeMy current top 25 album picks.
A disclaimer to those who look for certain albums on these lists: This is based only on albums I own, so of course I'm missing some great ones here. I had to cut out a heck of a lot of wonderful albums that I do own, too. It should also be known that the order I've placed them in (and even, to an extent, the albums I've chosen) could change simply based on my mood or the time of day. That said, here we go!
25. Country Willie by Willie Nelson. I don't know why I include this, but everything here just works. He's not known for this album, really, but I think the songwriting is fantastic and his voice sounds better than usual.
24. Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. Well, this is just pure California pop, isn't it? So many great songs here. Yes, it's hugely popular and has sold millions, and it's probably a little overrated. But hey, I love it.
23. Let It Bleed, by The Rolling Stones. My favorite Rolling Stones album, I think, although Exile is pretty awesome, too. …

11 apr 2008, 23:16 av JJJ567I have come to the realization that I do not use Last.fm to its full potential. I have decided I am going begin writing journals as a recollection of my thoughts, opinions, and to interact with other users. My current life goal is to write for a major music magazine, so hopefully this will help me sharpen my skills as a writer as well. I plan to do a weekly roundup of recent music I have acquired (if any). I’d love to shine a light on my personality. I feel music defines my character.
I want to begin with something fantastic a friend gave to me last week. He gave me a working record player! I have always wanted to start collecting vinyl, and now that I can put that idea into reality. I had some extra cash and headed to the Goodwill and purchased some classic albums. I picked up Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac, All Things Must Pass by George Harrison, and a best of Nat King Cole.
The Harrison record is what caught my eye first. …

3 mar 2008, 18:37 av HelenWheelsI mean, not if you listen to Abbey Road you feel happy, or if you listen to Double Fantasy it makes you feel upset.
Do you ever listen to an album, and it reminds me of a certain part in your life, and you feel the way you did during that period? It's a somewhat complex idea to comprehend, but it works. For example:
I obtained a copy of Memory Almost Full in the summer, shortly after its release. I never listened to it, and it collected dust whilst I pursued an interest in TV on the Radio. Then, from October to January, I was going through particularly low parts in my life, and I decided to pop it in my CD player and listen.
It's a beautiful album, really. Each song is so lovely and they seem to melt together to make a mass of songs which, personally, I am not surprised at. Paul has been making great music since the fifties, and I would have to say that this is definitely his best album since Venus And Mars. While browsing the McCartney forums a week or so ago, I came across a good description of both albums…
