Pixelscroll’s Pick of the Day for 05-14-2014!

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.

Pixelscroll’s Pick of the Day for 05-09-2014!

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.
