I'm strongly in the group that thinks Karen has...err...had, a nice voice, but their music was soooooooo over the top fluffy that I can't get into it.

This reminds me...I can't remember the name of it, but when I was in film school we got to see a short film about the Carpenters that was all done with Barbie dolls. Anyone else ever see that? They kept shaving more and more of the plastic off the doll to show Karen getting skinnier and skinnier. Sounds morbidly funny, but it was actually done well.

If you want to try something a little different and if you like world influences and electronica try Ecova. This is a trio with members from France,(displaced Californian) Iran, and Algeria. I find it very very cool. I have Heaven's Dust and Soft Breeze and Tsunami Breaks. If I remember correctly Soft Breeze is the straight stuff and the other in the club mixes. Both nice in their own way.

If you like Jazz try Madelain Peroux or Cassandra Wilson
If you like Country There is always K.D. Lang and Emmylou Harris.
If you like Blue Grass try Allison Krause or Kate Wolf.
If you just want some great female vocals try Sarah Mclaghlin "Mirror Ball", Bonnie Raitt "Road Tested", or Jennifer Warnes "Famous Blue Raincoat" or "the hunter".
Ok now I'm rambling. I really just got on here to say I agree with you, Sinead has an awesome voice and I love her early releases.

I downloaded the video, but I couldn't open it. Were you able to watch it, and if so, what software did you use?

In reply to:

Has anybody heard the SACD version of the Carpenters? Is it worth picking up? Any better than their standard greatest hits album?


I have it, love it (but then, I'm crazy about SACD), and find the fidelity superior to their Love Songs, the only other Carpenters CD I have.
