Xscape [Deluxe Edition] Xscape [Deluxe Edition] by Michael Jackson

Genre(s): Pop

Michael Jackson’s posthumous album “Xscape” features eight never-been-heard before songs that the artist had worked on but never completed. The tracks span forty years of archived material on which Jackson had completed the vocals. A crew of producers headed up by Timbaland painstakingly finished the tracks while preserving the integrity, vision and passion that made Michael Jackson the King of Pop. Michael Jackson’s spirit is even honored in the name selected for this album. He always chose a word from the album, and beginning with “Thriller,” used only one word titles that had an edge to them.

This deluxe version includes a selection of recordings in their original form.

Shine On (Deluxe Edition) Shine On (Deluxe Edition) by Sarah McLachlan

Genre(s): Pop

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
To start, I am writing from a Sarah McLachlan fan perspective.

I became a huge fan with “Afterglow” and then delved into the rest of her discography and really understood how powerful her music is…from the lyrics to the emotional depths she goes, her albums always have something that resonates with me and so many others. “Shine On” is no different. McLachlan demonstrates her ability to traverse emotional ranges from feelings such as love to grief. The way the tracks are laid out is perfect. She recently lost her father and there are many songs inspired by that and, as another review on the web noted, she has a nice “three suite” selection of songs that relate to all of the “things” one goes through with loss, grief, and growth. (“Broken Heart,” “Surrender and Clarity,” and “Song For My Father”).

Upon first listen, I thought most of the tracks were more slowly paced than usual; however, after another listen, the holistic view of the album became very apparent. Also, a lot of her usual sound is present, here. And there are certainly new elements to the production of the album that are quite exciting. Favorite tracks include: “In Your Shoes,” “Monsters,” “Broken Heart,” “Turn the Lights Down Low,” and “Love Beside Me.”

I am currently going through the grieving process, so I thank you Sarah for this incredible album and I really appreciate you putting it out for us all to engage with.

Lightning BoltLightning Bolt by Pearl Jam

Genre(s): Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
Eddie Vedder continues to pay homage to the Ramones in songs like “Mind your manners”. It appears that this group played their butts off and I think they quoted this in the making of this album video found on their website (which i saw afterwards).

I love this album very much and would highly recommend. A nice blend of grungy and slower songs too without the songs sounding the same as their previous efforts.

NewNew by Paul McCartney

Genre(s): Rock, Pop

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
I love this new album from Paul McCartney. My favorite song is the title track “New”. It puts me a great mood. This song motivates me to explore different options in life. This tune gives me a sense of confidence that I can succeed in these new endeavors. My other favorite song is entitled “On My Way To Work”. I relate to this song because I ride the bus to work every day. I often have a magazine to read. I often feel bothered by smokers just like Paul sings in the song. “Alligator” is a song about longing for companionship. I can relate to the lyrics about trying to find that special person. I think that alligator is a cute song title. “Early Days” is a song about Paul’s early days as a musician just struggling to get his music heard. This is another song that reminds me that my dreams can come true if I work hard. “Everybody Out There” is an up tempo song that implores me to try to make a difference in the world. Some of these songs I love just for the beat and the energy it provides me. “Turned Out” is a song that reminds me that I can do things to recharge and center my life when things gets chaotic. “I Can Bet” is a song with a great beat. This song is about the trust and unpredictable nature of relationships. “Hosanna” is a sweet love song”. “Appreciate” is a good love song about expressing love for a special someone. The lyrics are harder to make out because of the musical arrangement, but I enjoy the song any way.”Save Us”, “Queenie Eye” and “The Road” are three groovy rock songs. I could enjoy the rhythm and tone of these three songs without trying to analyze the words. “New” is a truly entertaining new album from Paul McCartney.

ElectricElectric by Pet Shop Boys

Genre(s): Dance & DJ, Pop

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
I love the Pet Shop Boys and have for 20+ years. Every couple of months I immerse myself in an all PSB marathon that has served as a real pick me up for years. That said I have not been a fan of their latest stuff as I thought it lacked the vibrancy and uplifting nature I had grown to love.

This new album has everything a PSB fan could want. Odes to their past, genius innovation, and an energy that is truly infectious. This work so blows away anything else out there in the EDM genre including Daft Punk who I also love. It is not that Daft Punk is bad in comparison it is just it is not fair to compare the two proverbial apples and oranges because Electric is on such a higher plane.

In a fair world there are a number of songs on this album that are destined to be hit singles including the crafty “Love is a bourgeois construct” and the current power ballad Vocal with its innovative video.

I have Spotify so I have access to the album for “free” but I went ahead and bought the CD to show my support for the boys. No matter how commercially successful Electric turns out to be the PSB have given us a real gift and shown the rest of the music community how to make a modern EDM album with depth. Thank you.
