  • Divergent

    Divergent

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   ~ Various Artists
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Interscope Records (2014, Mar 11th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Heather Phares The soundtrack to Divergent, the first film adapted from Veronica Roth's dystopian young adult novel series, reflects the story's high-tech future -- in which people are separated into factions based on their virtues -- in its mix of EDM and hip-hop. Even if the EDM craze had peaked somewhat by the time of the film's 2014 release, it's a refreshing change from the brooding alt-rock that dominated the Twilight Saga soundtracks and, to a lesser extent, The Hunger Games' music. Befitting Divergent's theme of breaking the rules, the soundtrack's most daring moment is among the best. On "Backwards," Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar turn their unlikely collaboration into a ...

  • High Noon

    High Noon

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Jerrod Niemann
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   SONY NASHVILLE/ ARISTA (2014, Mar 25th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine Jerrod Niemann freed the music on his second album but the music found no home. Compared to his 2010 debut, which topped Billboard's Country Albums charts on the strength of the doo wop swing of "Lover, Lover," the 2012 sophomore set sank without a hit single to its name. Some critics loved Niemann's willingness to be weird, but reviews don't sell records, so the singer decided to straighten up and fly right for 2014's High Noon. Here, the hints of hip-hop are streamlined -- they're present in the novelty "Donkey" and a cameo by country rapper Colt Ford on the closing "She's Fine" -- and when Niemann sings "in the country/we know how to rock," he's not conjuring...

  • Exile on Main Street

    Exile on Main Street

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   The Rolling Stones
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Umvd Labels (2010, May 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine Legendary as it may be, Exile on Main St. presents a challenge for deluxe remastered reissues. Much of its myth lies in its murk, how its dense, scuzzy sound is the quintessential portrait of rock stars in decadent isolation, the legend bleeding into its creation so thoroughly it is impossible, and unnecessary, to separate one from the other. Without this nearly tactile sound, Exile wouldn't be Exile, so remastering the record is a tricky business because it should not be too clean. The remaster on the 2010 reissue -- available in a myriad of editions containing variations of a single-disc remaster and a second disc expanded with ten unreleased tracks - doesn't ...

    Perhaps Love

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Jonathan & Charlotte
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Sony Masterworks (2014, Mar 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music GuideBritain's Got Talent duo Jonathan & Charlotte surprised judges with their classical crossover audition in 2012. Although they failed to win the talent show, they released their debut album that year after signing to Simon Cowell's Syco label. Their second record, Perhaps Love follows the theme of their debut, including a mixture of classical songs and pop reworks. Here they interpret Florence + the Machine's "You've Got the Love" and "Falling Slowly" (made famous in the film-turned-musical Once) by Glen Hansard. Read More Show Less ...

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Warpaint
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Rough Trade Us (2014, Jan 21st).
    Pages:   

    All Music GuideFollowing a four-year gap since their debut album, The Fool, the self-titled album from American indie rock band Warpaint sees the all-female quartet explore more experimental and intricate sounds than heard on the earlier disc. Warpaint includes the single "Love Is to Die." ~ Aneet Nijjar All Music Guide - Heather Phares "Undertow" was one of the highlights from Warpaint's debut album The Fool, and it still describes and defines their sneakily captivating approach and appeal. Their songs circle around themselves like smoke, creating a seductive haze. On Warpaint, the band gives more shape to that haze without sacrificing any of its delicate beauty, ...

  • Me

    Me

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   ~ Jo Dee Messina
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Entertainment One (2014, Mar 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Steve Leggett It's not like Jo Dee Messina hasn't taken time off before. Other than a holiday album, A Joyful Noise, which appeared in 2002, it was five years of silence between 2000's Burn and 2005's Delicious Surprise, and after that it was another five years before Unmistakable, which appeared in three EP installments in 2010. So Me, showing up early in 2014, just four years removed from the Unmistakable EPs, at least betters the pattern by a year. More importantly, it's her first release since her 17-year contract with Curb Records ended in 2012. Me was funded through a Kickstarter campaign and released by Messina's own newly founded label Dreambound Records, so it's her baby all ... See more details below Eligible for . more
