“EXPRESSIVE FROM THE HEART”

THE NEW ALBUM FROM PENNY JAYNE BLACK HAS A REAL GREAT FEEL TO IT. WITH THE FIRST CUT CALLED “SHE GOT A CALL” PENNY HAS AN EXPRESSIVE WAY ABOUT SINGING HER SONGS AND IS AN ALMOST LIFE LIKE FEEL TO IT AND PENNY BRINGS IN HER ELEMENT OF A IS REALLY, HAS THE ABILITY TO CONVEY HER MESSAGE OF BREAKUP ON THIS SONG.  THE NEXT SONG HAS A REALLY GREAT SOUND THE SONG CALLED CALIFORNIA PENNY HAS A SUNSHINE FEELING ON THIS SONG AND HAS THE ABILITY TO CONVEY HER SONGS THAT HAVE A REAL FEEL TO THEM. THE MUSIC MIX IS A MIX THAT IS REALLY CATCHY AND FULL OF FLARE & SUBSTANCE. PENNY HAS A MATURE SOUND THAT IS DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE AND THE NEXT SONG CALLED “BOOTLEG BAND” PENNY HS THAT CONSISTENT BEAT AND RHYTHM THROUGHOUT, HER VOCALS BRING IN THE ELEMENT OF STORY TELLING THROUGH HER LIFE EXPERIENCES. THE GUITAR RIFFS ARE EXPLOSIVE AT TIMES AND MAINTAINS A COUNTRY FLARE TO THEM. “LOG CABIN” IS PENNY HAS A SOUND THAT REMINDED ME OF A JOHNNY CASH BUT WITH A FEMALE APPROACH, BUT PENNY HAS HER OWN STYLE AND IS CONTAGIOUS AND NICE. PENNY REALLY THROUGHOUT THIS ALBUM IS REALLY A GREAT STORY TELLER AND HAS A MESSAGE ON ALL OF HER SONGS. THE NEXT TEACK CALLED “THIS AIN’T LOVE”  PENNY SINGS A LOW KEY LOVE SONG THAT REALLY HAS THE ABILITY TO HEAR PENNYS EXTRORDINARY VOCAL RANGE AND I REALLY ENJOYED THIS SONG. THE PIANO WAS MAGINIFICENT AND REALLY MADE THIS SONG. AS I LISTENED TO THE NEXT SONG CALLED “ON THE BEACH” PENNY HAS A KIND OF STYLE THAT BRINGS IN HER ABILITY TO SHOWCASE HER REALISM ON ALL OF HER SONG SELECTION THROUGHOUT. “BIRTHDAY GIRL” THIS SONG I REALLY ENJOYED IT HAS SOUND THAT I REALLY ENJOYED WHERE PENNY ONCE AGAIN SHOWS HER TRUE WRITING STYLE AND STORY TELLING. AS I LISTEN I CAN TELL YOU THAT PENNY JANYNE BLACK WRITES FROM HER HEART AND LIVED EXPERIENCES AND IS EVIDENT THROUGHOUT THIS WONDERFUL AND SUPERB ALBUM. THIS SONG REALLY BROUGHT IN HER ELEMENT OF TRUE SENSITIVITY AND I REALLY LIKED IT A LOT. THE SONG NEXT ON THE PLAYER IS CALLED “CRAZY CAT” PENNY THE GUITARS AREA RIPPING AND PENNY HAS A SOUND THAT ALLOW YOU TO HEAR HER GRITTY STYLE BUT REMAINS A PART OF THE ALBUM, WHERE PENNY CONTINUES HER WAY OF AN ALMOST WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT YOU GET KIND OF SONG. ‘FOUND SOMEONE” PENNY KEEPS HER STORY TELLING ON THIS SONG AND EXPRESSES HER FEELINGS AND ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR HER LOVE FOR HER PARTNER, AND SHE ONCE AGAIN MAKES IT FEEL SO REAL AND WITHIN GRASP OF YOUR EMOTIONS. “SUNSHINE FALL ON ME” PENNY BRINGS IN AN ELEMENT OF THAT PIANO BASED LOVE SONG AND PENNY REALLY HAS A INNATE ABILITY TO SING A SONG TO YOU AND REALLY BE SO DIRECT AND REAL. THAT IS WHO PENNY JAYNE BLACK IS AS A SINGER AND SONGWRITER AND I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED THOSE THAT CAN WRITE FROM LIFES EXPERIENCES AND PUT MUSIC TO IT AND MKE IT SO BELIEVABLE, PENNY JAYNE BLACK HAS THAT VERY ESSENCE THROUGHOUT HER ALBUM. THE LAST SONG CALLED ” GOTTA GET TO NASHVILLE PENNY REALLY HAS A SINGER FROM THE PAST IN ALMOST CONNIE FRANCIS, BUT CURRENT, PENNY IS A SMOOTH AND POLISHED MUSICIAN AND HER MUSIC EXPRESSES THIS THOUGHOUT, AND I REALLY ENJOYED HER STYLE. I GUESS YOU’D HAVE TO SAY I’M ON THE TRAIN WITH PENNY JAYNE BLACK AND HER STYLE AND IS A REAL AND VERY SUPERB STORY TELLER AND BLENDS STORY TELLING AND MUSIC TOGETHER AND COMES OUT AS A PERFECT MATCH. I THANK PENNY JAYNE BLACK FOR SHARING HER SUPERB MUSIC WITH ME AND I HOPE TO HEAR HER ON MY RADIO PLAYING THROUGH MY SPEAKERS.

“ALL HER OWN STYLE”

AS A MUSIC REVIEWER I HAVE WRITTEN AND BEEN EXPOSED TO A LOT OF MUSIC, AND WITH THIS BEING SAID. I LISTENED TO THE LATEST EP OF MUSIC ARTIST NAMED SIGNE MIRRANDA AND HER EP CALLED “IT’S BEEN SO LONG” SIGNE EXPRESSES HER MUISC IN AN INDIE POP FASHION, BUT HAS A LITTLE PUNKISHFEEL TO IT. WITH THE FIRST SONG ON THE EP IS CALLED “IT’S BEEN SO LONG” SIGNE BLENDS IN A MELODIC AND CATCHY SONG THAT HAS A MESSAGE AND SIGNE SEEMS TO BE EXPRESSIVE IN HER LYRICS AND THE WAY SHE SINGS. SIGNE IS REALLY QUITE EXPRESSIVE THROUGHOUT THIS EP. “SEPTEMBER NIGHT” IS A LITTLE PUNKISH AND ALMOST AND HAS THE GOOD USE OF MELODIES AND HAS THAT MESSAGE THAT SIGNE BRINGS INTO HER STYLE OF MUSIC. IT’S RATHER DIFFICULT TO PLACE A STYLE OR GENRE OF HER STYLE BUT SHE HAS A CATCHY FLARE ON HER SONGS ON THIS WONDERFUL RESPRENTATION OF HER . “SHE’S BREAKING UP” HAS A SOUND THAT IS KIND OF REMINICIENT OF AN ALMOST “GREEN DAYISH” AND SIGNE BRINGS IN HER LYRICAL CONTENT THAT SEEMS IMPORTANT AND HER USE OF GUITAR IS EVIDENT AND HAS SOME INSPIRATION OF EARLY GUITARIST WITHIN THE INDUSTRY. IT IS RATHER DIFFICULT TO PLACE WHERE SIGNE PLACES HER STYLING ON, I DID ENJOY HER ACCOUSTIC GUITAR ON THE SONG CALLED “YOU CHANGED EVERYTHING” AND ONCE AGAIN SIGNES VOCALS HAVE SUBSTANCE AND HAS AN ALMOST SING A LONG MELODIES AND WITH HER GOOD LYRICAL BALANCE BETWEWEN THE MUSIC AND HER PLAYIING ABILITY. ” LOVE WINS SOLAR ECLIPSE” SIGNE SEEMS TO BE SINGING HER FEELINGS AND IS REALLY EXPRESSIVE IN THAT WAY TUCKED UNDER HER GUITAR WORKS AND IS A SINGER WHO HAS POETRY SET TO MUSIC AND IS QUITE GOOD AND ENJOYED THE EP. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE FROM SIGNE SINCE IT IS A RATHER DIFFICULT TASK TO WRITE A REVIEW ON A 5 SONG EP AND PROBABLY DOESN’T GIVE HER MUSIC TOTAL JUSTICE. BUT I DO LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING A FULL ALBUM WITH SIGNE. I WISH TO THANK SIGNE FOR GETTING ME A COPY OF HER EP & LOOK FORWARDS TO HEARING MORE FROM THIS TALENTED MUSICIAN.

“POLISHED TO PERFECTION”

AS I LISTENED TO THE NEWEST SONG FROM MISS ANGEL SESSIONS, SHE BRINGS IN THAT DANCE GROOVE RIGHT AS THE MUSIC STARTS. HER VOICE IS ONE OF THE “ANGELS” EXCUSE THE JARGON. ANGEL BRINGS IN A REAL URBAN BUT REMAINS ALIVE AND CURRENT, AND THIS SONG HAS REALLY GOT SOME GOOD BONES TO IT. AS THE RECORD PLAYED ON ANGEL HAS THAT KIND OF SOUND THAT ENERGIZES THE SOUL AND FILLS UP YOUR MUSIC PALLET. AS I  GAVE HER MUSIC A LISTEN TO A SONG CALLED “OPEN UP YOUR EYES” ANGEL BRINGS IN HER CONTINUED DANCE FLOOR DIVA ISH LYRICS AND BEAT AND REALLY IMPRESSED ME. ANOTHER SONG THAT I HEARD IS A SONG CALLED “NOT TODAY” AND ANGEL CONTINUED TO AMAZE MY MUSICAL EARS, TO THE POINT OF I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, WOW. WHAT A SUPERB TALENT. I EVEN THOUGHT WHY ISN’T SHE ON MY RADIO. ON THIS SONG ANGEL BRINGS IN HER MAGICAL WEAPON, HER DISTINCTIVE AND SMOOTHLY POLISHED AND A FULL BLAST OF HER VOCALS BROUGHT THE SONG TO A FEVER PITICH, AND WAS MUCH ENJOYED BY YOUR TRULY. ANOTHER SONG CALLED “WHAT GOES AROUND” THIS SONG CONTINUED TO POP AS I LISTENED AND IS REALLY A SUPERB SONG ADDED TO ANGELS ALREADY GROWING PLAYLIST. THE SONG I HEARD NEXT IS CALLED “BREATHE” AND ANGEL CONTINUES TO FILL THE AIRWAVES WITH HER SUPERB STYLE, A VERY SHORT SONG, AND WANTED TO HEAR MORE, BUT BEING AN INTERLUDE, IT WAS THAT AND MORE. “ASTA LA VISTA BYE BYE” ANGEL CONTINUED  TO ENTERTAIN ME AND HER VOCALS HAVE THAT RANGE THAT IS A GREAT MIX AND HAS THAT GET YOUR BUTT ON THE FLOOR & DANCE. “CLEAN YOUR ACT UP” ANGEL KEEPS THE DANCE BEAT GRINDING AWAY AND MY VISIT TO THE DANCE FLOOR WAS ONLY BEGINNING WITH ANGEL AND HER SUPERIOR MUSIC STYLE AND LOVED HER VOCALS ON ALL THE SONGS THAT I HEARD. “GIVE LOVE A TRY” IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE OF HER CATALOG OF MUSIC. ONCE AGAIN SCRATCHED MY HEAD AND ASKED HOW IS SHE NOT ON THE RADIO? WITH A VOICE LIKE THIS? ALL I CAN SAY IS IF I OWNED A RADIO STATION ANGEL WOULD ON MY ROTATION, AND HEAVY ROTATION AT THAT. “MAKE UP YOUR MIND” BROUGHT ME BACK TO THE DANCE FLOOR AND KEPT ME THERE, FOR THE ENTIRE SONG, ANGEL, AND HER MIUSIC MIX IS WHAT I STATED BEFORE “FRESH & CURRENT” & I LOVED IT. “YOUR STILL THE SAME” IS A GREAT LOVE SONG AND HAS ANGELS “ANGELIC” VOICE AND, FROM MY START OF LISTENING HER MUSIC TO THIS SONGAND OTHERS TO FOLLOW ANGELS “GOT IT”. “SEXY” IS ANOTHER SONG THAT BRINGS YOU TO GET DOWN & GRINDING TO THE BEAT AND ANGELS CONTINUED TALENTED VOCALS AND HAS KIND OF A SULTRY FEEL TO THE MUSIC, AND ONCE AGAIN THIS IS A TRUE FAVORITE OF MINE. “THE BOMB” ANGEL KEEPS THE BEAT ALIVE AND DANGEROUS AND CONTAGIOUS AND I AS MY LISTENING EXPERIENCE ANGEL JUST HAS IT. AS MOST OF YOU ALL KNOW ME, I AM A SUCKER FOR A LOVE SONG, BALLAD & THE SONG CALLED “FOREVER MINE” STOLE MY HEART, AND ANGLE IS OUTSTANDING, AND MASTERFUL WITH THIS SONG AND THIS IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE AS ANGEL HAS THE ABILITY TO CONVEY HER TREMENDOUS GIFT OF SINGING TO YOU. THE LAST SONG CALLED “LET’S BUMP” ANGEL PUTS THE MUSIC INTO HIGH GEAR AND REALLY ASKS YOU “LETS BUMP” ALL IN ALL I WAS REALLY & HONESTLY IMPRESSED WITH MISS ANGEL SESSIONS MUSIC AS A WHOLE. SHE’S GOT TREMENDOUS VOCALS AND ARE REAL AND TOUCHABLE SOFT. I WISH TO THANK MISS ANGEL SESISONS, OFR HER FRIENDSHIP, AND INTRODUCING ME TO HER MAGICAL, AND FOREVER, SMOOTH STYLE OF MUSIC. IF I MIGHT ADD, I’D HOPE AFTER OTHERS HAVE READ MY REVIEW, AND AFTER LISTENING TO ANGEL SESSIONS MUSIC WOULD AGREE WITH MY FINDINGS ANGEL IS A WONDERFUL SINGER & WAITING THE DAY THAT I HEAR HER ON THE RADIO.

“ROAD THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL AFTERMATH”

IN A MAGICAL AND MYSTERIOUS KIND OF WAY, THE MUSIC OF THE BAND “SIREN’S BREATH A BAND THAT HAS PURE TALENT AND MORE. AS I LISTENED TO THEIR LATEST CALLED “BEAUTIFUL AFTERMATH” THEY SURROUND THEIR MUSIC WITH A STRANGE BUT ALMOST  A MEDEVIL THEME TO THEIR ARTISTRY IN MUSIC. WHICH BROUGHT ME TO THINKING AS I LISTENED AND WROTE THIS REVIEW. SIREN’S BREATH HAS A ELEMENT OF DARKNESS THAT SURORUNDS THERE ALMOST MELODIC AND MYSTIC MUISC. THEIR MUISC IS QUITE HEAVY AT TIMES BUT IS VERY EXPRESSIVE IN NATURE AND KEEPS TO THEIR THEME OF WHERE THE ALBUM IS GOING MUSICALLY. THE BAND HAS A SOUND THAT IS VERY UNIQUE AND DO NOT FOLLOW ANY ONE BANDS RULES, THEY SEEM TO HAVE THEIR OWN DINSTINCTIVE SOUND AND IS CONTAGIOUS. “GOTTA B ME” THIS SONG STARTS THE ALBUM OUT WITH A BANG AND IS A VERY HEAVY LYRICALLY AND HEAVILY THEMED KIND OF STYLE. THE BEST WAY I DESCRIBE THEIR MUSIC IS AN ALMOST LIKE WATCHING A PLAY BUT ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE DARK & EVIL LOOKING, AN ALMOST DREAM STYLE APPEARANCE. THE NEXT TRACK IS CALLED “UNCAGED” AND IS A REALLY HEAVY SONG THAT WEIGHS HEAVILY ON THE THEME STYLE THAT IS ONLY “SIREN’S BREATH” AND HAS THAT VERY DINSTINTIVE SOUND THAT I HAVE NOT HEARD IN OTHER MUSIC BAND ACCROSS THE MUSICAL SPECTRUM. IT SEEMS AS IF THEIR MUSIC ARRIVES FROM A DARK PLACE AT TIMES, BUT NOT, THEY BRING IN THAT MEDEVIL APPEARANCE IN THEIR STYLE AND HOW THEY PAINT WITH WORDS AND MUSIC OF WHAT IS PERCIEVED TO BE A NARRARATION OF THE EVENTS UNFOLDING MUSICALLY. SIREN’S BREATH HAS A SOUND ALL IT’S OWN AND AS I LISTENED, IT BECAME CONTAGIOUS AND I BEGAN TO FOLLOW THE THEME OF THE ALBUM & WAS DRAWN INTO THEIR PAINTED AND PRESENTED STORY LINES THROUGH THEIR MUSIC. THE LEAD SINGER RACHAEL, SHARES A SOUND THAT AT TIMES WAS AN ALMOST GRACE SLICKISH FROM THE DARK LSD YEARS OF “ACID ROCK” “SOMEWHERE AT THE BOTTOM ” A SONG THAT SHARES A LITTLE MELODIC SOUND AND CONTINUES TO CARRY THEIR THEME WHICH IS ALMOST “GOTHIC” IN STYLE AND PRESENTATION BUT REMAINED VERY GREAT MUSIC THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM. AT TIMES I HEARD EDGY LYRICS AND EDGY MUSIC BUT WHEN COMBINED MADE A UNIQUE STYLE THAT WAS IMPRESSIVE AND PERFORMED WELL. “GRID IRON” CONTINUED THAT GRINDING BUT DELIVERED A POWERFUL PUNCH INTO YOUR FACE, AND OTHER PLACES AS WELL. “DAMIANAS REVENGE” HAS AN ALMOST OPERATIC THEME TO IT AND RACHELS VOCALS MAKE THEIR SONGS BELIEVABLE AND EVER PRESENT AND CONTINUE TO TRAVEL THROUGH YOUR VEINS AS YOU LISTEN. “GRENDUL & BEOWULF” IS A SONG THAT IMMEDIATLEY GAVE ME A POWERFUL KICK IN MY GROIN, AND ALL THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM.  THE MUISC & LYRICS ARE VERY DEEP IN NATURE BUT THAT IS HOW THIS ALBUM IS PRESENTED TO ME. THE GUITAR LICKS ARE REALLY FIERCE AND PROJECTED EVER SO MUCH THROUGHOUT, WHICH PLAY THE PART ON THIS ORCHESTRATED BUT HAS A REAL FEEL AND NARRATIVENESS TO IT. “DRUMS IN THE DEEP” KEEP THAT POWERFULLY CHARGED SOUND ALIVE AND WELL AND PROVES THE RELENTLESSNESS OF THIS BAND. AS I LISTENED ON TO THE ALBUM I FELT THAT THE BAND HAS A WAY OF EXPRESSING THEATRICS THEMED MUSIC AND ADDS THAT  ELEMENT TO EVERY SONG ON THEIR ALBUM. THE BAND AT TIMES HAS A THEME THAT THEY PROJECT THROUGH AND THROUGH AND WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “THE WISDOM OF ATTICUS FINCH” BRINGS THE VISION OF THE STORY TELLING THAT THEY BRING TO EACH SONG. ALL THEIR SONGS ARE CAREFULLY AND WELL THROUGHT OUT, AND WITH THE NEXT SONG A SONG CALLED “ALWAYS (SEVERUS SNAPE’S SONG”) CONTINUES IN THEIR MUSIC TRADITION AND SIMPLY PUT AMAZED MY LISTENING EXPERIENCE ON THIS AMAZING  RIDE THROUGH THEIR ALBUM. THE LAST SONG ON THIS POWERFULLY CHARGED AND THEATRIC AND EYE OPENING MUSIC ALBUM IS CALLED ‘DAYS GO BY” AND  I WAS AMAZED, I WAS ENTHUSED. AT TIMES I WAS BROUGHT WITH THEM ON THEIR ROAD THROUGH THEIR “BEAUTIFUL AFTERMATH”. ALL IN ALL THIS IS A SUPERB AND POLISHED VERY WELL PRODUCED AND PLAYED ALBUM. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS TO CHARLIE ANNE, RACHAEL, NATHANIEL, AND THE BAND OF “SIREN’S BREATH’ FOR THE TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR THEIR MUSIC AND REALIZE THAT THEIR IS MORE MUSIC OUT THERE THAT I HAVEN’T GOT TO HEAR.

THE MUSIC ARTIST THAT I WROTE A REVIEW ON MISS SHARON MUSRAVE AND HER “POSITIVELY BEAUTIFUL” ALBUM CALLED “OUTFLOW”. SHE IS SUCH A REAL PLEASURE TO WORK WITH AS A MUISC JOURNALIST AND HAVE ESTABLISHED SUCH A BEAUTIFUL REPOIRE WITH HER. HER TALENT IS OUT OF THIS WORLD AND MORE. WITH THE NEW RELEASE OF HER MOST RECENT PROJECT CALLED “SHA’S ARCHIVE” SHARON DOES IT AGAIN. WITH A POSITIVE MESSAGE THROUGHOUT THIS PURE, MAGNETIC AND ATTRACTIVE MUSIC SHE BRINGS IN ALL SHE SINGS. WITH THE FIRST TRACK ON THIS MAGNIFCIENT ALBUM IS CALLED “DRAG ME” AND SHARON HAS A REAL BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSIVE WAY OF SINGING, AND AT TIMES FELT AS IF SHE WAS SINGING DIRECTLY TO ME. SHARON AND HER BEAUTIFUL MUSIC REPRESENT WHAT IS SO RIGHT, AND HER VOCALS ARE SO REAL AND TOUCHABLE AND AS A TRUE FAN OF HERS SHE IS INCREDIBLY JUST SIMPLY PUT AWESOME. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “COMFORTABLE” SHARON BRINGS IN HER  JAZZY UPBEAT VOCALS AND A TRULY FRESH APPROACH TO HER ALREADY MAGNIFICIENT STYLE. THE SONG IS A BEATTY JAZZY AND LYRICALLY SUPERB. “PULL IT UP A NOTCH” THIS SHOWS SHARONS REAL ABILITY TO CONVEY HER MESSAGES THROUGHOUT HER MUSIC STYLE AND IT’S ALL WONDERFUL & UNIQUE AND I LOVE ALL OF IT. “I CHOOSE YOU” SHARON BRINGS IN HER ECLECTIC STYLE IN PERFECT FASHION AND THIS SONG ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL THE RTHYHM THROUGH THE CONTINUAL VIBES AND SHARONS VOCALS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD AND IS A WARM ADDED BONUS TO MY LIFE. “SHAY’S ARCHIVE” HAS A SOUND THAT BRINGS THIS ALREADY TREMENDOUS ALBUM ALIVE, AND WITH THE ADDED SAXOPHONE AND TRUMPET SECTIONS COUPLED WITH SHARONS OUTSTANDING VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS IT JUST MAKES BEAUTIFUL SENSE AND I HAVE BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE IMPRESSED WITH SHARONS  TOTAL GIFT OF MUSICIANSHIP. “FAVOURITE” HAS TO BE A SONG THAT SHARON BRINGS IN HER FEELINGS AND TRUE EMOTIONAL VALUE AND FEELS TRUE AND REAL, AND ALWAYS BRINGS IN HER STORY TELLING ABILITIES IS MOST ENJOYABLE. WITH THE NEXT SONG ON THE ALBUM CALLED “BLUE NILE” SHARON HAS AN ALMOST FLEMENCO CARRIBEAN STYLE IN THE FEEL OF THIS SONG, AND BRINGS THAT FRESH APPROACH TO MUSIC AND IS A SUPERBLY FINE POLISHED SINGER AND I AM TOTALLY IMPRESSED WITH HER MUSICAL TALENTS AND A TRUE LOVE OF HER MUSIC STYLING. “GODSPEED” IS YET ANOTHER REAL REASON TO REALLY HAVE YOUR EARS WITHIN DISTANCE TO LISTEN TO SHARONS REAL AND BEAUTIFUL TALENT BEING PRESENTED TO YOUR EARS. “TRIMPH OF BRIAN”SHARON KEEEPS THAT ALMOST FLEMENCO SOUNDING MUSIC FLOWING AND AT TIMES I FOUND MYSELF IN SPAIN IN THE BEAUTIFUL SUN FILLED DAY AND “BEAUTIFUL MUSIC’ FILLING THE AIRWAVES. “WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO” FEATURING  SHAR IS A ECLECTIC MIX OF FUSION BASED AND SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS THAT MAKE YOUR EARS AND SURROUNDS YOU WITH THE LOVE FELT THROUGHOUT. “PUFTA PUFTA” IS A MIX OF BEATS AND IN TRUE SHARON MUSGRAVE STYLE BRINGS IN HER TALENTS IN THE ACCAPELLA DEPARTMENT AND IS SUPERB AT THIS. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “NEW HORIZON” SHARON HAS THAT TRULY BEAUTIFUL VOICE THAT DOESN’T QUIT AND HAS THE ABILITY TO MESMORIZE WITH HER TOUCHY, FEELY GROOVES AND SOOTHING VOCALS. THE LAST TRACK ON THIS SUPERBLY AND FINELY SHARPEND AND WITH ALL POINTS OF POSITIVE LIGHTS DIRECTED AT YOU THROUGHOUT EVERY SONG. SHARON ADDS TO THE MIX OF GREAT AND SUPERBLY TALENTED MUSIC ARTISTS BUT REMAINS TO BE ON TOP IN MY OPINION. I THANK SHARON TREMENDOUSLY FOR HER CONTINUED SUPPORT AND FRIENDSHIP, AND AS A MUSIC JOURNALIST AND REVIEWER I AM ALWAYS HONORED AND VERY PROUD TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH A PURE & “POITIVELY BEAUTIFUL” TALENTED LADY AND ALWAYS WILL.

“BLUES……AND… MOORE”

AS A WRITER I REALLY ENJOY THE VARIETY MUSIC ARTISTS THAT I HAVE HAD THE REAL HONOR TO WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW ON. I HAVE OFTEN STATED THAT THE BLUES IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL MUSIC GENRES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF CLASSICAL. THIS MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW IS VERY SPECIAL TO ME, WITH THE REASON I LOST ONE OF MY TRULY BEST FRIENDS THIS LAST YEAR & HE LOVED GARY MOORE MUSIC AND THIS I’D SAY IS A DEDICATION TO HIM. THE MUSIC REVIEW I AM  WRITING THIS REVIEW ON IS OF GARY MOORE & HIS RELEASE CALLED “BLUES AND BEYOND”  A TWO CD SET THAT IS TOTALLY AWESOME.”THE WRITING OF THIS REVIEW IS MORE A TRIBUTE TO GARY MOORE WHERE HE CONTRIBUTED TO, SO MUCH TO THE MUSIC SCENE FROM HIS STINT IN THE BAND SKID ROW TO THIN LIZZY WITH THE LATE PHIL LYNOTT. AMONG ALL HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE MUSICAL INDUSTRY. CROSSING ALL MUSICAL BOUNDRIES GARY IN HIS LAST YEARS OF HIS CONTRIBUTIONS WAS AN ALBUM FROM 1983 CALLED “BLUES ALIVE” IN WHICH I BELIEVE WAS SOME OF HIS GREATEST MOMENTS OF HIS CAREER, IN THAT COLLECTION IT INCLUDED A SONG CALLED “SEPERATE WAYS” & WHAT A SONG. IN THIS COLLECTION STARTING WITH THE FIRST TRACK FROM 2001 CALLED” ENOUGH OF THE BLUES”AND WOW! WHAT AN AWESOME ILUSTRATION OF GARY PURE & YET RAW TALENT. THE NEXT TRACK IS CALLED “TELL ME WOMAN” WHERE GARY IS JUST A WIZZARD AT THE GUITAR AND RIPS THE SONG AT IT’S SEAMS AND DOES NOT STOP THERE. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “STORMY MONDAY” GARY JUST ADDS TO HIS CONTINUAL FUZZ AND HOT TOPPINGS TO THIS WHERE HIS GUITAR WORKS ARE REALLY OUT OF THIS WORLD. “THAT’S WHY I PLAY THE BLUES ” IS ONE OF WHAT I CALL GARY’S FINEST HE JUST REALLY SHOWCASES HIS TRUE LOVE OF THE BLUES AND A HIS LOVE AND RESPECT FOR THE GUITAR.”POWER OF THE BLUES”WHERE GARY SHOWS US WHAT THE POWER OF BLUES IS AND IS JUST PHENOMNAL. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “BALL AND CHAIN” WHICH IS A SONG WAS POPULARIZED BY THE LATE JANIS JOPLIN AND GARY PUTS HIS TOTAL SPIN ON THIS AND PUTS IT ON IT’S ASS. “LOOKING BACK” IS ANOTHER AWESOME AND GUITAR BLISS OF A SONG AND GARY SLAM DUNKS THIS INTO THE STRATOSPHERE. AS I LISTENED TO THIS ROCK, POP BLUES AND JUST WHOLESOME AND ARTICULATE BLUES. “SURRENDER” A DOWN LOW KIND OF FEEL BUT SMOOTH AS GLASS GARY JUST SUMS UP THE BLUES IN HIS STYLE THAT AND SLOWS THE TEMPO A LITTLE TO SHOW HIS VERSATILTY IN HIS REMARKEABLE STYLE AND FLARE.  “COLD BLACK NIGHT” GARY BRINGS IN HIS ELEMMENT WITH HIS FANCY FRET WORK AND HIS SCRATCHY FLICKS OF THE GUITAR AND IS A RIPPER. “THERE’S A HOLE”  GARY BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF HIS SIGNITURE SOUND WHERE HE HAS A STYLE ALL HIS OWN AND SHOWS THE ROUGH WAY TO PLAY THE BLUES. ROCK AND ROLL WITH A TRUE SLAM SPLASHIN TIME ON THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “GETAWAY BLUES” GARY IS TOTALLY RELENTLESS ON HIS GUITAR SLAMMING AND SUPERB LICKS AND JUST RORARNG THROUGH THIS SONG, WHAT A POWERFULLY CHARGED SONG, AND I LOVED IT FROM START TO FINISH. “WE WANT LOVE” IS A USE OF FANCY BUT GROOVY KIND OF SONG WHERE GARY POPS IN AND OUT OF THE LOW DOWN BLUESY FEEL AND GRITTY TEETH GRINDING SONG. “MEMORY PAIN” GARY BRINGS IN HISWANG ON HIS GUITAR WORKS ON THIS ONE AND ADDS HIS NORMAL WAVY SMOOTH GUITAR WORKS. THE LAST SONG ON SIDE ONE IS CALLED “THE PROPHET” AND GARY SHOWS HIS TRUE BLUES GUITAR ON THIS ONE, AND I LOVE IT, WHAT A GUITAR VITUOSO GARY REALLY IS AND PRESENTS THROUGH ALL OF HIS INTRICATELY INTRODUCED RIFFS. AND THAT I JUST SIDE ONE. AS I FLIP THE CD TO DISC NUMBER TWO, IT STARTS OUT WITH A BAM, AND THE SONG CALLED “YOU UPSET ME BABY” A SONG FROM HIS ALBUM “BACK TO THE BLUES”,  AND GARY BRINGS IN HIS TOTAL RAUCAUS ABILITES AND REALLY SHOWS HIS PURE LOVE FOR THE BLUES. THIS WONDERFUL AND ELABORATE COLLECTION FROM GARY MOORE IS A REPRESENTATION OF HIS CAREER SPANNING MUSIC AND THE BLUES REMAINS HIS SPECIALITY THROUGHOUT THIS 28 SONG COLLECTION. “BRINGING BACK MY BABY” I FELT AS GARY WAS TRULY BEING EXPRESSIVE WITH HIS POWERFULLY CHARGED AND HEARTFELT RIFFS THAT REFLECT THROUGH HIS MASTERY OF THE GUITAR. WITH AN ALMOST APPPALACIAN SOUNDING HE SHOWS HIS ABILTY TO CROSS OVER ALL PATHS OF MUSIC. “CAN’T QUIT YOU BABY” GARY REALLY BRINGS IN THE FULL GUNS OF HIS SHREDDING OF HIS GUITAR, AND MAKES ONE FEEL THE TRUE POWER OF HIS ABILTY TO CONVEY THIS THROUGH YOUR SPEAKERS. “WORLD OF CONFUSION” GARY HAS THAT ROCK AND ROLL FEELING AND REMAINS TRUE TO HIS BLUES ORIGINS.”PICTURE OF THE MOON” GARY BRINGS IN HIS SLOW DOWN WAY,  AND SOFTENS THE EDGY SIDE OF HIS BLUES. JUST AS THIS NEXT SONG STARTS GARY STRUTS HIS EARLY SOUNDS AND BRINGS IN THAT SOUND OF EARLY BLUES AND REALLY DIGS IN DEEP AND SHOWCASES HIS ROUGHNESS & TOUGH WAY AND TRUE MASTERY OF THE GUITAR. “DROWNING IN TEARS”  IS AN FINE EXAMPLE OF HOW GARY CAN PROJECT HIS TENDER SIDE AND LYRICS THAT REFLECT HIS EMOTIONAL VALUE OF HIS LYRICAL CONTENT. WITH THIS BEING SAID GARY BREAKS WIDE OPEN YOUR SPEAKERS WITH THE GEAR DRIVEN SONG CALLED “EVIL” AND GARY FILLS YOUR SPEAKERS WITH THAT ROUGH AND ALMOST DISTORTED VOCAL RANGE BUT REMAINS WITH HIS CONSTANT BLUES RIFFS ON HIS AMAZING GUITAR ABILITIES. GARY STARTS THE NEXT SONG CALLED “MY BABY” AND HAS THAT GUITAR SLINGING FROM THE BEGINNING AT WON’T LET GO UNTIL IT’S OVER. THROUGHOUT THIS WONDERFUL AND SUPERCHARGED ALBUM I HEARD THE HEAVY INFLUENCES OF PETER GREEN RINGING THGROUGHOUT, GARY SEEMS TO CARRYING THIS THEME AND ESPECIALLY IS EVIDENT ON THE SONG CALLED “AIN’T GOT YOU” AND GARY ALLOWS ONE TO REALLY APPRECIATE HIS MASTERY OF HIS CRAFT AND HIS CONSTANT SOUND THAT IS TRULY BASED ON HIS MUISCAL INFLUENCES THROUGHOUT HIS EXTROADINARY MUISC CAREER. ” JUST CAN’T YOU GO” GARY TOUCHES ON HIS SOFTER SIDE AGAIN IS A MASTERY OF A SONG THAT ONCE AGAIN SHOWS A TRULY VERSATILE MUSICIAN, AS THE SONG EVOLVES INTO THE MONSTEROUS AND PICKS UP THAT GARY MOORE PACE AND STILL SHOWS GARYS ABILTY TO PUT A SONG TOGETHER THAT ADDS SO MANY ELEMENTS WITHIN ONE SONG, WHICH IS PURE MUSIC MASTERY AT IT’S BEST. “HOW MANY LIES” GARY RINGS IN WITH HIS BLUES FROM THE ALBUM “BACK TO THE BLUES” WHERE HE BELONGS. MOST OF THE SONGS THAT GARY HAS IN HIS MUISCAL CATALOG ARE BLUES BASED AND REFLECT HINTS AND TAKE A SAMPLING FROM ALL HIS INFLUENCES FROM ALL GENRE OF MUSIC. THIS SONG IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS. “TORN INSIDE” GARY SLOWS HIS GUITAR DOWN TO ALLOW YOU TO REALLY HEAR HIS MASTERY OF THE GUITAR LIKE NO OTHER. BLUES ARE HIS THING. THIS PARTICULAR SONG GARYS VOCALS ARE RAW AND EMOTIONALLY FILLED AND WAS PROBALY ONE OF MY FAVORITES ON THIS SUPERB MASTERY OF AN MUSIC AND IS TRULY REFLECTIVE OF GARY MOORE THAT I FIRST WAS INTROUCED TO BACK IN 1981. “PARISIENNE WALKWAYS” ANOTHER CUT THAT WAS FEATURED ON HIS 1983 “GARY MOORE BLUES ALIVE” AND IN MY OPINION IS A SONG THAT ONE WOULD HAVE TO BE AT THIS SHOW WHICH I BELIEVE WAS RECORDED IN FRANCE AND GARY ALLOWS ONE TO REALLY FEEL AND EXPERIENCE HIS TRUE TALENT ON THE GUITAR. SADLY IN 2011 WE LOST GARY, A TRUE SAD MOMENT IN MY OWN LIFE SINCE I ALWAYS DREAMED OF HAVING THE CHANCE TO SEE GARY IN A “LIVE” SHOW, HOWEVER HIS TRUE LEGACY WILL LIVE ON WITH SUPERB COLLECTIONS LIKE THIS ONE CALLED “BLUES & BEYOND” WITH ALL THE TRUE TALENTS OUT THERE GARY WAS ONE THAT I AS A MUSIC JOURNALIST AND A MUSIC REVIEWER THAT I TRULY ENJOY WRITING ABOUT ESPECIALLY WITH KNOWING THAT HOW MANY OTHERS INFLUENCED GARY, I’D LIKE TO THINK IT PLAYS BOTH WAYS, GARY INFLUENCED ME AS A WRITER AND I AM SURE MANY OTHERS AS WELL WEATHER IT BE MUSICALLY OF PERSONALLY GARYS MUSIC WILL ALWAYS BE A VOICE AND A GUITARIST THAT OTHERS MAY BE IN AWE WHEN THEY HEAR HIS MUSIC FOR THE FIRST TIME, AS FOR ME THATS WHAT GARY PROJECTED HIS CONSISTENT MESSAGE AND HIS “STORY OF THE BLUES”.

“EMOTIONAL, INSPIRATIONAL RIDE”

WITH THE REAL PLEASURE & THE AMAZING FEELING THAT I GET EVERY TIME I WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW. WITH THIS BEING SAID, AFTER LISTENING TO THE NEW ARRIVAL AND MUSIC ALBUM FROM COUNTRY LEGEND AND SUPERSTAR JOHN CONLEE, CALLED “CLASSICS 3” JOHN LIVES UP TO HIS GREATEST TREASURE WHICH IS HIS TREMENDOUS VOICE AND ALWAYS IS SO CONSISTENT WITH THIS. ADDED TO HIS TREMENDOUS MUSICAL TALENT IS HIS ABILITY TO SING A TREASURE TROVE OF INSPIRATIONAL SONGS, AND THIS ALBUM IS NO EXCEPTION. THE FIRST SONG ON THIS WONDERFULLY CRAFTED AND SUPERB ALBUM JOHN IS AT HIS BEST AND THE SONG IS CALLED “GOT MY MIND SET ON YOU” AND JOHN BRINGS IN HIS MASTERFUL AND TOTALLY RECOGNIZABLE VOICE AND THE SONG IS JUST ONE THAT I’VE ALWAYS LOVED. WITH THE SECIOND CUT A LOVE SONG CALLED “LEARNING HOW TO LOVE” JOHN BRINGS IN HIS SINCERITY AND HONESTY AS HE MAKES THIS SONG A TRUE PIECE OF CRAFTED ART. AS WE ALL GET OLDER WE CAN APPRECIATE THE THOUGHTS THAT CROSS OUR MINDS AND WITH THIS SONG JOHN SUMS A LOT OF THOUGHTS THAT I’VE THOUGHT OF. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “WORKING MAN” HE SALUTES THE “WORKING MAN” THROUGH HIS THOUGHFUL & PERSONAL LYRICS. AND THIS SONG IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF A MARVELOUS ALBUM. AS THE NEXT SONG STARTS JOHN BRINGS IN HIS SPIRITUAL SIDE AND REALLY SHINES HIS BEST. THE NEXT SONG ANOTHER INSPIRATIONAL SONG CALLED “A BIBLE & A BELT” WHERE JOHN SEEMS TO BE SINGING A LESSON IN LIFE AND HIS DUE RESPECT FOR THE “BIBLE AND A BELT”. “THE SHADE” IS A SONG ABOUT FAMILY AND HOW YOU HAVE MEMORIES THAT HAVE ALL THE FAMILY THERE, AND AS YOU DRIVE THROUGH THE MEMORIES OF FAMILY AND HOW MUCH THEY REALLY MEAN TO US AS INDIVIDUALS. THERE IS ALWAYS A SONG ON MOST ALBUMS THAT I REALLY ENJOY, AND THIS SONG SEEMS TO BE IT, THE SONG IS CALLED “UNBORN VOICE” AND JOHN BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF TRUE FEELINGS AND ADDS REAL & PURE EMOTION, AND I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG. “LIVING LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW” IS THE NEXT TRACK ON THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM. JOHN IS TRUE TO HIS STYLE ON THIS SONG AND HAS THAT ABILITY TO CONVEY HIS EMOTIONAL VALUE TO THE SONG, AND IT’S ONE OF THOSE SONGS THAT PROVOKE AND EMOTIONAL RESPONSE IN THE TEARS DEPARTMENT. “THE ROCK ” JOHN BRINGS IN HIS INSPIRATIONAL SIDE MIXED WITH HIS CAREFUL & TRUE FEELINGS OF LOVE GONE, BUT REMAINS A ROCK THROUGHOUT. THE NEXT SONG IS CALLED “LONELY DON’T KNOW WHEN TO LEAVE” AND JOHN IS REALLY BRINGING IN HIS FLAVORFUL APPROACH TO THIS SONG TO HIS EXTENSIVE REPOITRE AND IS SUPERBLY MASTERFUL &  AN ALMOST HAS A JOHN ANTHEM THEME RUNNING THROUGH IT. THE SOFTER SIDE ARRIVES ON THIS WHOLE ALBUM , HOWEVER THE NEXT SONG SUMS UP THAT FEELING THE SONG CALLED “COULD YOU LOVE ME ONE MORE TIME” AND JOHN WITH THIS SONG SHOW HIS HONESTY AND HIS SUPERB STRENGTH AND BRINGS THE SONG AND IT’S MEANING TO LIFE. THE LAST SONG ON THIS WONDERFUL AND SPLENDID COLLECTION IS A MASTERFUL WORK OF TRUE MUSIC ARTISTRY, A MERLE HAGGARD SONG CALLED “JESUS TAKE A HOLD” AND JOHN SERVES THIS SONG TOTAL AND UNWAVERING JUSTICE. AS A MERLE HAGGARD FAN FOR A LONG TIME AND NOW HEARING JOHN SING HIS VERSION OF THIS, HE HAS BROUGHT A NEW LIGHT TO IT AS HE BRINGS IN HIS ELEMENT OF TRUE HONESTY AND BELIEF ON THIS SONG. AS I LISTENED TO THIS WONDERFUL AND SPLENDID, MASTERFUL ALBUM BY COUNTRY LEGEND AND SUPERSTAR JOHN CONLEE IT BROUGHT ME TO THINK ABOUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US AND REAFFIRMS OUR BELIEFS IN A HIGHER AUTHORITY. I THANK JOHN FOR HIS TREMENDOUS VOICE AND GIFT OF SONG THAT HE HAS SO GRACIOUSLY SHARED WITH ME AND THIS ALBUM NEEDS TO BE IN EVERY RED BLOODED PERSONS COLLECTION AND ONE WHO LOVES MUSIC AND TRULY BELIEVES.
