I've been collecting (kay at this point its more like hoarding) CD's for a long time now and so I wanted to try my hand at doing some album reviews. Basically I'll be rating the cover art and each song on the album. Naturally I'm going to start with my all time favorite album. So without further delay, here's a review of the Mother Earth album.
The artwork for this album is what drew me in. At the time I had purchased this album, I was having trouble deciding which Within Temptation album I wanted more; Mother Earth or Heart Of Everything. In the end I went with this one Mother...
For this event I was pretty near the front. From what I heard this band is pretty new and I attended one of the stops in their first tour ever. They weren't bad at all for a band that hasn't been preforming long. I liked the female vocals; they were very powerful and passionate. And the harsher male vocals were a nice contrast. In general they had a catchy list of songs and put on an ear pleasing show. They didn't quite have a stage presence yet and didn't interact with the crowd too much, but that'll probably come with time.
Backsmacking, for those who don't know is when you take a song and put it in reverse. Some artists of course decide to put reversed lyrics in their own songs. I always found those to be interesting and so I decided to make a list of these songs. In the parenthesis are the lyrics. And yes, I did have to reverse some of these myself lmao so some of the lyrics may not be exactly correct (and some I couldn't understand at all). I'll probably add more as I find them.

Recently, while surfing through Twitter, I bumped into a tweet by Ellen Degeneres where she interviewed a young boy who was a big fan of Idina Menzel. And as a surprise, Idina Menzel was there too! I can just imagine how joyful that boy was. However, this kind of saddened me. As someone who's also a huge fan of Idina Menzel, watching that little boy meeting her idol made me happy, and sad. Happy because a young child finally met with the person he idolized. And sad because I wanted to meet/contact her for a long time. This gave me an idea. Maybe if I write about why I look up to her, then she...
Another round of concert reviews from the bands I've seen this year so far.
Slot Machine was pretty cool; the lead vocalist had this nifty pimp cane lol. He also had these really cool sunglasses that looked almost futuristic and robotic. All of the members were wearing suits. I wasn't as into their music but they were lively and kept me entertained. And they taught the crowd a bit of Korean. I was about six rows of people back and got a pretty good view.
FYI, this list is not in order from favorites to least favorites, simply because I found it impossible to determine which songs would occupy the top portion of the list over the other songs. The songs are alphabetized according to title.
Also, my favorite songs often shift drastically within relatively short periods of time, so this list may be subject to change.

...And one you should give a second chance.
I've been known to have music tastes that aren't for everyone. People tend to be a little crazy about what music they do and don't like but if it makes you feel good who really cares, right? I was up last night watching music videos for one of the artists on here and I was thinking to myself "Why aren't they more popular? Why does nobody I know talk about them?" Then I answered my own question and decided to inform the masses! So lets get started!
