Labratory Noise While cruising the net I found the band Laboratory Noise. Intrigued by the name I looked them up on MySpace. What I found was music composed of intricate layers elegantly woven into a delicate cascade  of sound.

Seven CD Review

The band Seven, named after the Seven Deadly or Cardinal sins Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth Wrath Envy and Pride was formed six years ago. After a few changes in the lineup they became the musical force you hear on their self titled CD.
The CD takes you through tight, adrenaline-fueled tunes. Seven has the components to make good music with good guitar riffs with drummer Eric “Gluttony” Souza hammering the music home!
Rob “Envy” Hunter has the vocal chords to carry off the songs the way metal should be sung. He can quickly change from screams to growls to melodic signing while maintain the fast pace of the songs.
Seven brings strong song writing and catchy melodies to their CD. For me the stand out is “I Hate Myself” it is crisp, clean with a tight rhythm section that demands you move to the music.
This CD moves smoothly through the tunes with a mix of metal and a touch of techno on the side. Check out their music on MySpace.

Tyrants in Therapy CD Review

The Tyrant’s in Therapy cd  High Class Trash is a large body of work that covers just about every aspect of the human condition in styles that range from calypso to country to a song Crosby, Stills Nash and Young could have written.

There are 21 songs on High Class Trash, told you it is a large body of work. Track 17 and 18 are listed incorrectly on the insert and oddly when the song comes up on the player it has the correct name for the song on insert but a different song plays.

Theory of Flight CD Review

When I receive a press release from one of the publicist I work with I notify the band on MySpace or where ever I can find a contact. This lets them know that the release is on the website and usually I will ask a question or two. Theory Of Flight  has the distinction of  being  the only band that did not acknowledge my note to them on MySpace.  And yes they read it. (Look in your MySpace sent folder and it will say when a message has been read.)  Once a friend jokingly asked me to contact Kevin Bacon about a show, I did and got a polite, “No”. I didn’t even get a “fuck you” from Theory of Flight. They are without a doubt the rudest band I have come across in the four years I have been doing reviews.

Whitney Houston’s new album “I Look To You” is due to hit the stores August 31, 2009.  The title track can be downloaded on whitneyhouston.com. Links are available for US and international fans.

I Look To You available in stores August 31, 2009

I Look To You available in stores August 31, 2009

The last time I saw Whitney Houston my heart was broken.  I actually thought she was a man in drag. She was too thin and looked unhealthy.

If you go to whitneyhouston.com you will see a YouTube clip of a beautiful, rested healthy Whitney Houtson. “I Look To You” debuted to a roomful of enthusiastic celebrities that welcomed Houston back with her new album.

The familiar voice is more mature and doesn’t  hit the soaring heights it once did.  None the less if you are a Houston fan you won’t be disappointed. Her voice is still rich and beautiful.  “I Look To You” written by R.Kelly is a perfect way for Houston to give us insight into how she has struggled to made her way back to her fans.

At the risk of making you groan I must end this by saying that with “I Look To You” Whitney Houston has unbroken my heart. The beautiful, vibrant woman we fell in love with is back and with all of us behind her here to stay.

Cathy-Anne McClintock CD Review

Cathy-AnneMcClintockWriting music reviews can be little over whelming and can make you feel like you are slogging through mud. There is always a pile of CD containing envelopes on my desk.

In those envelopes you will find garnets, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and pearls. If you are like me there are a few you will say you don’t have time to review. Those are the reviews you can’t bring yourself to write. An honest review would be, “someone should have loved you enough to say don’t record that”.

Then it happens you open the envelope pop in the CD and you hear an exquisite voice.  You realize you have fished a perfect diamond out of that envelope pile. In this case it is the voice of Cathy-Anne McClintock.
