The Last Dinner Party - Prelude to Ecstasy
85
The Last Dinner Party from London presents with Prelude To Ecstasy one of the best debut albums of the last years. Both the earlier released singles and the full album are worthwile several listenings. Complex arrangements combined with artful melodies and a professional production result in a sophisticated art pop rock album without abandoning a significant entertaining value. Great job by Georgia Davies, Lizzie Mayland, Abigail Morris, Aurora Nishevci and Emily Roberts ( (and James Ford, ... read more

James Brown - Hell
78
James Brown published in 1974 by Polydor his 38th studio album as a double LP, slik and sly funk as usual, maybe becoming a bit heavier, at least in parts (I Can't Stand It "76). Beside some remarkable tracks, in particular to find on side A with "Coldblooded", "My Thang" or "Sayin' It and Doin' It" I like in particular the calmer "Sometime" and "A Man Has to Go Back to the Cross Road Before He Finds Himself". Also remarkable are the albums ... read more
Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs
79
Straight and rough blues rock, sometimes with funky splashes and a overwhelming voice which matches with the music perfectly - that's Robin Trowers Bridge of Sights. Try "Day of the Eagle" or "Too Rolling Stoned" and you know if this album will be pleasant for you or not.
Toots & The Maytals - In the Dark
83
Crucial album for reggae fanciers. Groovy reggae with some highlights such as the title song "In the Dark", the outstanding "54-46 Was My Number" or the successful cover of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Road" are also appreciate to make familiar with reggae music and one of the best reggae singers Frederick "Toots" Hibbert.
McKinley Dixon - Beloved! Paradise! Jazz​!​?
83
When I listened to the first three tracks I though there's nothing special. It changed with track four "Run, Run, Run", which drew my attention and made curious about the rest of the album. Sometimes the first impression is false. McKinley Dixon's Beloved! Paradise! Jazz!? convinces with sophisticated rap lyrics backed by a subtle jazz instrumentation (brass, strings). Great job.
Post Animal - Levitation Sessions (Live)
90
Overwhelming live performance, makes curious about the studio albums of the band.

Hello there Fantasio!
Me and my brother recently released an album - in my review I explained the cool story behind how it was made and how it went semi-viral.
It would mean a lot if you could take a look, I promise it's pretty interesting :D

Hello there, Fantasio! Wanna partake in my new community list?
The topic this time will be a bit seasonal: coziest albums/songs! Imagine the perfect music for snuggling in the fluffiest blankie, sipping on some hot choccy milk while admiring the chill snowfall from the window outside.
Thanks in advance!
