Will Young 85% proof
Months after its release I still very frequently play the album. This one is Will in true great form. Love it.
Maria Mena Growing pains
Once again a great album from Maria. The hard beats from her last album Weapon In Mind are tuned down a bit, making this album a more natural transition between Weapon In Mind and its predecessor Viktoria. Highlights are the gospel infused opener Good God, Leaving You and Confess.rWarning: this is a breakup album, so if you're not into those themes, please avoid this one.
The Common Linnets II
Soulsavers Angels and Ghosts
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
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.

  • 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
