I still enjoy this one. Thanks again, Chris, for the recommendation.

Heh, I've hardly listened to her after my initial infatuation. Though I was thinking about her the other day, but couldn't remember her name. Figured I'd just look up the LotR soundtrack when I really wanted to hear her again.

Since you made it easy, I'll have to play her stuff again tonight.

Without leaving the door open for disappointment, there can be no discovery.

Yes and Toto =
Bobby Kimball (vocals, guitar)
Billy Sherwood (vocals, bass, drums)
Tony Kaye (keyboards, vocals)

Weird lineup. All the tunes are written by the Toto Two (argh, argh). They sound either like Yes, Toto, or Yesoto (my uncle had a red and white one, cool).

Never questioned the top-shelf musicianship of any member of either. Still great.

As oddly as they can write and sound like Yes, (minus the signature Jon Anderson voice, of course), neither the "Yes" nor the "Toto" benefits and I'm hearing nothing new as a result of the synthesis.

A great "band" with nothing to say. Remember Asia? Did that have a 'z'?

It's like the Toto guys are living out a "Yes" fantasy. On the 2nd disc they do old Yes or old Toto. Kimball and Sherwood nail every part amazingly. Crooked Vultures is two guys' Led Zep fantasy, but they concocted something engagingly new.

FannyPack - So Stylistic

I'd only listened to it when I first got it, so I put it on again today. Hard to recommend, especially to this group, but some of the tracks do crack me up. "Sugar Daddy" is one of those tracks where the singer sounds like they're having sex. Goofy fun.

Chick Corea, Time Warp, Bass Into Discovoury.

I love this piece on my M80s as you hear all the delicate detail an accoustic bass can produce.

Today it's Janelle Monáe's "Many Moons" that's making me think, "Awesome." Good stuff.

Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes

I am disappointed. Youth Novels was such a great album. This new one is much less intimate. It's like she is singing for her audience rather than singing to me. She wails too much. There is too much "filler" sound causing a flat, undynamic mess.
