Albums to Love

After a too-long period of time when my computer was unavailable, there has been a lovely outburst of music.

First up is Ms. Swift. She has announced that she's releasing a new album - yay! - called Red. The First single off of it is called We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. The only one I've found is sort of buzzy because she recorded it without a sound booth, and put it right onto Youtube. It's our classic T Swift, and it sounds like this new album is less country than they used to be. Whether that means more relaxed songs or maybe some pop-py ones as well, We'll have to wait until October 22nd to find out.

A lot of the time, it seems like pop singers are a dime a dozen. Sometimes though, we find one who sings beyond expectations. Although Arlissa's song Hard To Love Somebody could be sung by anyone and sound pretty good, Arlissa's voice lends it a dimension beyond the usual. I don't know how much more music she will do, but if this is what she has, I hope she'll show us more.

If you haven't listend to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals yet, you are missing out. Think of a more vocally powerful Jewel - including the fancy voice acrobatics and beautiful lyrics, and you have Stars. While I don't consider Never Go Back to be quite the same quality, it is still a pleasure to listen to. Their Album The Lion The Beast The Beat is certainly a treasure to listen to, with tracks classified as rock and others as pop.
