  • The Ultimate Bee Gees

    The Ultimate Bee Gees

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Bee Gees
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Rhino Records (2009, Nov 3rd).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine Functioning as something of a replacement for the 2001 collection Their Greatest Hits: The Record, The Ultimate Bee Gees covers much of the same ground as that double-disc set, albeit in not quite so linear a fashion. The Record marched through its 40 tracks chronologically, opening with the stately baroque Beatlesque pop of the '60s and then winding through the '70s, whereas this opens with the bright, fabulous blast of "You Should Be Dancing" and remains in their late-'70s heyday for a while before fast-forwarding to such latter-day adult contemporary hits as "One." We don't get to "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" and "I Started a Joke" until halfway through ... See more details below Eligible for . more

    High School Musical

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Lucas Grabeel
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Walt Disney Records (2006, May 23rd).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Heather Phares In the Disney Channel's original movie High School Musical, the star basketball player and a brainy new arrival discover their love of singing at a karaoke night, then try out for the school musical and challenge the status quo of their cliques in the process. While the movie's soundtrack isn't exactly challenging, it does feature a pretty engaging mix of music and empowering messages, most of which can be found in earnest ballads such as "Start of Something New," "When There Was Me and You," and "Breaking Free." Meanwhile, "We're All in This Together" sets lyrics like "Everyone is special in their own way/We make each other strong" to music inspired by "Hollaback ...

  • Ultimate Laughs

    Ultimate Laughs

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Bill Engvall
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Jack Records (2014, Mar 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - David Jeffries Rounding up his best bits from the years 1996 to 2009, Ultimate Laughs features the Blue Collar comedian's greatest hits, including the monolithic "Here's Your Sign." That career-defining bit, which suggests stupid people wear an "I'm stupid" sign so the rest of the world has fair warning, is here along with all of its sequels, which are surprisingly just as good. Titles like "Bad Weiner Day," "Argue Naked," and "Hurting Gas" display what a great combination Engvall is when it comes to his "aw shucks combined with poop jokes" style, while a cut like "Vicodinland" is a fine example of the man in long story mode, coping with life after 40 and how it is often an aggravating...

    Publisher:   Capitol (2010, Jul 6th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Andy Kellman Following the successful 2007 release X -- unsurprisingly a number one album in her native Australia -- and a tour that took her to over 20 countries, Kylie Minogue sticks to club-oriented dance-pop on the ballad-less Aphrodite. Her eleventh album, it was executive produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, Seal) but also involves input from several other collaborators, including Calvin Harris, Pascal Gabriel, and Nerina Pallot.

    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:    (2000, Jan 1st).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger Chock-full of hits and priced to move, the 2014 edition of Rhino's annual Grammy Nominees compilation features 18 selections that span multiple genres, with highlights arriving via big pop moments from the likes of Katy Perry ("Roar"), Lorde ("Royals"), and Sara Bareilles ("Brave"); some solid country crooning from Kacey Musgraves ("Merry Go 'Round"), Blake Shelton ("Mine Would Be You"), and Taylor Swift ("Begin Again"); and ubiquitous dancefloor jams from Daft Punk ("Get Lucky"), Robin Thicke ("Blurred Lines"), and Justin Timberlake ("Mirrors").

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Now Music
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   UMe (2014, Feb 4th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Andy Kellman When this volume of the Now series was released, in February 2014, three of its inclusions had reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Those hits -- Pitbull's "Timber" (featuring Ke$ha), Lorde's "Royals," and Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" -- are front-loaded here. They're followed by five additional songs that peaked within the Top Ten, including One Direction's "Story of My Life" and "Counting Stars," a Great Big World and Cristina Aguilera's "Say Something," Imagine Dragons' "Demons," and Drake's "Hold on, We're Going Home." The series continues to provide an accurate representation of the biggest pop hits, though some of the cuts -- such as Natalia Kills' ... See more details below Eligible for . more

    Held in Splendor

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Quilt
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Mexican Summer (2014, Jan 28th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Heather Phares Quilt's version of psychedelic pop, which nodded to the sound's '60s heyday with jangly guitars, intricate harmonies, and gently rambling songs, was already pretty fully realized on their self-titled debut. Their second album, Held in Splendor, feels like both a continuation and a dramatic evolution from their early days. Shane Butler, Anna Fox Rochinski, and John Andrews bring more form and focus to their trips; that they were able to record these songs in an intense set of sessions, instead of over the course of a year like they did with their debut, only helps their coherence. Working with Woods' Jarvis Taveniere was also an inspired choice, since his music also feels... See more details below Eligible for . more

    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, ...
