I concede that K-POP is a "thing." I admit that I, too, was once a teenie bopper with a younger sister who filled her bedroom walls with torn-out pages from Popzines of her current heartthrob popster. I discovered this K-Pophemonenon via a Time magazine article in the dentist's office. I find the YouTube video of these gorgeous Korean women, and I click the link to find out what's happening now in the K-Pop universe. The Vid opens up, and I'm tots diggin' the colorful set & ... read more

A fine example of early German EM and the development of the Berlin School style. The record sounds dated, but it's easy to understand the visionary genius at play by the band if listened to in the proper context.

Please be forewarned that my entry pertains solely to discs one and two. Fripp is my favorite Progressive Rock guitarist and has been for a long time.

Both Bocelli and his 2018 album "Sì" are foreign to my earholes that, not entirely unlike @Toasterqueen12, via a colleague who holds the title of Bocelli's Most Rabid Fan Ever. Yay. Not me, though. Nope. Bocelli's vox is superb. His live performances are the bomb diggity too. I'm holding out for Ólafur Arnalds Portland, OR, visit in mid-May because this is where my musical head remains. Enmeshed in the intriguing sounds of Modern Classical music. I can admit that the ... read more

Some records come across my desk labeled as Progressive Rock, and I stutter-step when I spin one for the first time because the band doesn't sound like a Prog Rock band. Then, my internal hard drive reminds me that the genre Progressive Rock is a large umbrella that covers Frank Zappa's music alongside Steven Wilson. My nagging conscience persists in poking at my frontal lobe to remind me that the term Progressive Rock refers to changing time signatures and not the style of music itself. Okay, ... read more

About

I'm exploring a new rating scheme that is based upon 5 stars where each star is equal to 20 points. The total points are accumulated and subsequently divided by the total number of tracks to arrive at an aggregate score for an album being rated. Simple? daFigz™ votes, yes!
