| ||Trijntje Oosterhuis Walk along|
Trijntje worked with Anouk again on this album. The songs themselves feel more live and hint more towards the soul roots of Trijntje (or Traincha as she's known in foreign countries) than on Wrecks we adore. This album deserves a lot of followers, because of the songs which Anouk wrote and the vocal qualities of Trijntje. Don't care for the title track though, which was the Dutch submission for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.
| ||The Common Linnets The Common Linnets||3.5|
| ||Anouk Symphonica in rosso|
The concert itself was great. Anouk and her 'regular' swedish co-writers did a great job in choosing the songs and arranging them for the inclusion of the orchestra. The rating would have been a 5, if only the feeling I got being at the concert would have translated completely in the recordings. Unfortunately for instance the highlight of the concert (For bitter or worse) loses a bit of impact due to the lack of depth in the recording, especially when the orchestra is in full war mode. Stil, a superb album.
| ||Anouk Paradise and back again|
Anouk returns with a collection of seperate songs. She just felt like she should release the songs, even though they didn't necesarily fit together. The album is highly enjoyable. Highlights are 'Daddy', 'Last goodbye' and 'Wish he could see it all'.rThe bonus tracks (the last four) are so so. The lead single 'Places to go' is a good song, but becomes a bit dull after listening to it more. The other tracks are mediocre at best, which brings down my rating with at least half a point.
| ||Martin Gore MG|
Being a long time fan of the instrumentals MG penned for DM (love all the acronyms), I have been a bit disappointed with the instrumentals from the last couple of DM-albums. And now Martin comes up with an entire instrumentals album. I must say the first few listenening sessions make me hopeful I will grow into the album, allthough I don't have an instant feeling of 'classic' with any of the songs. Perhaps hearing Brink more will change that.
| ||Goldfrapp Black Cherry||3.0|
| ||Taylor Swift 1989|
More listening sessions in, I'm even more impressed. So I had to add an extra 0.5.

|xxm Wow! a carpenters fan on sputnik! Not to metion the fact that the soundoff itself is awesome. And while i disagree with you on certain things particulary on oasis and living colour(even though i do say this a lot to other people i see on sputnik so you should probably ignore this part of this love letter.)but the fact that you are such a great,descriptive writer(and to mention yet again a carpenters fan!)makes you a worthwhile user in and in of itself well keep up the good work Dutch |
