I think it's interesting, at least for me, how my listening habits have changed.

I believe I will always love having music on, but what I listen to has changed so dramatically.

I've long gotten rid of my vinyl collection of 100's of albums. I have a ton of self made music collection and a decent collection of commercial product.

But... I don't listen to these much more. I primarily listen to my CD's while washing the car. I listen to podcasts on my 45 minute drive to and from work.

Right now I'm sitting outside, drinking coffee, enjoying the morning, listening to Pandora on my iPad.

As company comes over, I turn on one of the special music channels thru cable. I know that will change when I get my stereo back up and running.

But I've adapted to the changes and thoroughly enjoy music as much as yesterday, if not more.

Tuskegee - Lionel Ritchie



I'm going to give Lionel Ritchie's latest effort a pretty good rating, because 1, this is very listenable. It's his greatest hits re-done in a somewhat country vein. Have to admit his hits are good. Some are fantastic.

But... this is not for me. I just don't see the need to re-record the classics. I guess to bring a new generation back into the mix like Rod Stewart, Tony Bennett and Santana have done.

I'm not gonna crap on it. It's a fine effort and it does have a little different take with the duet thing. That's fine, but I'll pass on this one.

I'll will stick with the originals. I have nothing but disdain for this need to re-record the songs. It's more about the original Record Company getting too much of the cut and less for the artist than any artistic merit or need for new fans.

Yea, agree. But like the movie remakes, go for it if you want and maybe, just maybe it will produce something I might like

Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band Live 2006



I'm not much of a live recording fan unless it's just superior and there are some very good recordings out there. While this is recorded well, the guest artists have not aged well and they don't sound that great.

Saying that, 8 minute version of Frankenstein with Edger Winter is pretty cool. Some of the other artists just don't stand up too well.

The Script - The Script



I accidentally ran across a Script recording sometime back and it instantly caught my attention. Amazing vocals with some excellent power pop writing. I can like pop... sometimes. The Script has the right formula.

So found the premiere outing by the group and I'm rather impressed. Several songs off here are keepers. And not one song is bad.

Lita Ford - The Best


Listening to this for the first time in a very long time, the Best has not aged well on some songs. It's not they are bad, just not what I want to listen to today. I still like the Kiss Me Deadly, Back to the Cave, Close My Eyes, but some of the others have faded in likeability for me.

I kinda like her take on Alice Cooper's Only Women Bleed.

Comeblack - Scorpions



Quote
After the SCORPIONS had announced their leave and advertised their last tour, the most frequently asked question by journalists all over the world, was the one about a possible comeback. "Comeblack" is a pun and a parody at the same time. The idea for this album came up during the rockers' impressive world tour:

"We can't exactly remember the day, the month or the hour, but at some point during this tour we were simply overwhelmed by the success of "Sting in the Tail" and our farewell tour. The idea to go back to the studio was born out of pure excitement ... Screaming fans wherever we went! It was great to share the studio with Mikael and Martin again, going crazy with ideas for a new "project"!"
Bookended by completely new productions of great SCORPIONS songs like "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Wind Of Change" or "Still Loving You", adapted to today s technical standards, Meine, Schenker, Jabs & co. recorded songs in their very special way. Songs, which had enormous meaning to them during their career, and have since become milestones of musical history, like "Tin Soldier" by The Small Faces, "Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones, or Marc Almond s "Tainted Love".

You ask why? The answer is quite simple: This album is an encore for our die-hard fans, to thank them for all the support for so many years. At the same time, this is a tribute to legendary bands from the sixties, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, who have inspired us to follow our dreams. We hope you like it as much as we do ... Rock on and ... ComeblackĀ« Scorpions...
