HIGH VALLEY-Love Is A Long Road (2012)


Me having gotten into the country music spirit again while still being in the spirit of sharing good tunes equates to me serving up another fulfilled wish from the requests list. The Canadian trio (currently a duo, as sources tell me) that calls itself HIGH VALLEY is a group whose music I'd long been curious about until "Love Is A Long Road" became my listening companion on this quiet and rainy Saturday morning. Now I can say with absolution that I hold HIGH VALLEY in high regards, a terrific new addition to my collection of country artists and a band I expect to include in future music rotations. Hearing their engaging, collective voices on the lively opener, "Let It Be Me", got me all saddled up and eager to advance on the next stop along the road, the album's down-to-earth title track, where the songwriter hopes that the journey of love is for eternity with no twists, turns, roadblocks or other obstacles getting in the way. It was when I got to the third track, "Have I Told You I Love You Lately?" (the title momentarily had me thinking about my beloved Rod Stewart cover of "Have I Told You Lately?) that these guys really started to capture my attention. This is a good, solid song—so tender and charming and very real—and one that makes you wonder when was the last time that you yourself told your significant other that you loved them? The pure country spirit first steps up on the guitar-driven story about the good old days being gone and time flying by on "Not That Long Ago", arises a few stops afterwards on the slow, sad tune of regret and lost chances on "Never Took Her Dancing", then a third and fourth time with "Dirt Rich" (a fun song telling a feel-good story of how a lifetime of hard work allows them to live in luxury; ' thank the Lord we're dirt rich is the line from the chorus that makes me laugh) and the beautiful acoustic guitar-driven number, "Porches" (an excellent place to hear the trio's collective voices, I must point out), which talks about how these covered shelters attached to the front of or the rear of our homes are often the settings for life's most fondest memories. Even higher praises for the song entitled "Love You For A Long Time". I really like the sound to this one—the somber tonality and that 'galloping' country rhythm accompanying the lively pop/rock—and the earnest words delivered in the chorus about loving the woman until his last living breath. Then there's the heart-warmer, "Home Sweet You" (another title that makes me think about a classic golden oldie; this time, LYNYRD SKYNYRD's "Sweet Home Alabama") that does indeed feel like I was home sweet home. And on that note, I'll conclude by saying that listening to this album made me feel right at home while at home, and I look forward to having HIGH VALLEY as my music companions further down the road:

1. Let It Be Me
2. Love Is A Long Road
3. Have I Told You I Love You Lately?
4. Not That Long Ago
5. Trying To Believe
6. Love You For A Long Time
7. Never Took Her Dancing
8. Home Sweet You
9. Right Here Beside Her
10. Dirt Rich
11. Porches

Hunter Hayes-Hunter Hayes (2011)


From hunting down dance jams with bombastic bass beats to successfully hunting down something else from the easy-listening music genre—the self-titled debut of young country star Hunter Hayes (not to be confused with the saxophonist by the same name who was active in the early 80's) is both a wish fulfilled straight off the requests list and my first ever chance at getting formally acquainted with him and his talents. A bit of research beforehand informed me of this guy's ability as a multi-instrumentalist as well as his numerous musical achievements, so I was definitely eager to check out the tunes here that led to him receiving fame and recognition. Didn't take me long at all to appreciate his songwriting, his refined pop/rock sound and his dynamic vocal style when my ears took in the opener, "Storm Warning". A coincidence that I'd hear a song with such a title, given the dreary, chilly and rainy day that I've had to sit through. But whereas I welcomed the unexpected rains with open arms, the storm that Hunter endures on the opener is represented by the girl who gets him caught up in a beautiful mess, wishing he had some kind of sign or notice of what he was gonna get himself into. Hunting for further excellent listens thereafter requires no effort whatsoever; they're lined up nice and neatly, with any one of them being a potential prized possession after it keeps you company for a minute or two. For me, those prized possessions took the shape of a trio of lively tunes—"Love Makes Me" (as in 'love makes him do it'—the things that anybody who's in love could do), "Everybody's Got Somebody But Me" (this upbeat, perky country tune has a sunny, intimate touch, but the lyrics of disappointment rains on the love parade) and "More Than I Should" (an awesome rockin' country jam where you can feel the angst seething between every word, especially in the opening verse where he confesses that he wasted all his time and money treating the girl a queen, wishing he had just thrown a lighted match into a tank of gasoline)—plus the charming acoustic guitar/piano-driven piece called "Wanted" (as in simply wanting to make the girl feel wanted and loved in every way imaginable) and "Somebody's Heartbreak" (I like his idea that if the girl's gonna be somebody's heartbreak for a lifetime, let it belong to him, because it;s better to have some heartbreak than having nothing at all). Those are just a few offerings that I'm displaying in my trophy case; other listeners may covet the breezy country-flavored "If You Told Me To", the intimate comfort that is "Cry With You" or the lost-and-lonely-hearted "What You Gonna Do?". No matter which kind of song you're looking for to make your day, it's gonna be happy hunting either way:

1. Storm Warning
2. Wanted
3. If You Told Me To
4. Love Makes Me
5. Faith To Fall Back On
6. Somebody's Heartbreak
7. Rainy Season
8. Cry With You
9. Everybody's Got Somebody But Me
10. What You Gonna Do?
11. More Than I Should
12. All You Ever

Basshunter-Calling Time (2013)


In a way, I have been doing some 'bass hunting' of my own, as I've suddenly found myself jumping back into the realm of dance music and wanting to hear something with some cool hard beats! Next to be called up on my re-connection line is the Swedish DJ and producer who really knows how to blast the bass! "Calling Time" was one of the albums by him that I'd been missing, so I went all out and treated myself to this monster hour-long, eighteen-track package of dance music bliss! It's high-energy albums just like this that I love to indulge in, as they're a great way for me to escape and to really let loose! Such is the attitude on the super-charged opener appropriately called "Saturday", as that tends to be the one day of the week when much of the population wants to leave all cares behind, go out for a night on the town and celebrate. The music kept me hooked for sure, as did the way he sings 'out of c-c-control now' and 'I like to move it, move it' (which reminds me of that song from that animated "Madagascar" movie soundtrack) behind the vocals of the guest female singer who delivers the chorus. It's a different lady—a Dulce Maria—who is featured on the surprise bilingual cut, "Wake Up Beside Me". Honestly wasn't expecting the Spanish lyrics here, but they are a pleasant allure to my ears alongside the airy sunniness of the chords and the bangin' Eurodance beat. Yet another lady is invited to spice things up a bit on the track entitled "Fest I Hela Huest"; the way her chopped-up vocals go 'whoa-oh-oh-whoa-oh-oh' is just some of the things toyed with in the production that make this one a lot of fun to listen to. Basshunter surely had some fun of his own showing off the production skills on "Pitchy Track". Initially, I was curious what 'pitchy' actually referred to, but as the track ended up being non-vocal, all-out trance groove, I suspect 'pitchy' meant that the music was all about the 'pitch', the sound and all of the other instrumental ingredients that went into it. There are all-out trance grooves, and then there are the high-octane club cuts that are purposely intended to get the crowds pumped up: "Crash & Burn", "Dirty", "I Came Here To Party" and especially "Far Away", where he's showing off the mixing skills on the machines to the extreme and getting club goers fired up with his chants of ' let's get this party started! '. It's an instructional of sorts on how to make the right music on "Lawnmower To Music". As with "Pitchy Track", I was initially curious what the 'lawnmower' referred to. In his spoken digitally-disguised explanation, I gathered that 'lawnmower' symbolized him cutting up an original piano score and sculpting it into a nice, clean trance jam.....or something to that effect. You'll be going 'WOW!' in response to the explosive beats erupting on this album's title track while my #1 favorite of "Dream On The Dance Floor" had me going 'WOW!'. The ultra-fast tempo, the dreamy chords and Basshunter's mellow vocals are what immediately contributed to me being so allured by the latter, the allure enhanced later by the flashy production play (the shift from the glitzy, skippy electronic accompaniment during the momentary beat drop drop, for example). Just when you think this one couldn't get any better, you'll be blown away by the awesome 'Rude Dog Remix' that pops up towards the end of the album—a definite must-have for all of the clubgoers! Sure feels like a couple of my other favorite cuts quite literally did get cut: "You're Not Alone" and "Rise My Love". Each is a bit too short for my personal taste, with the former teasing me further with its progressive Europop sound making it always sound like it's on the verge of evolving into a full-out dance thriller; at the least, it's begging for the remix treatment, but I found delight with ts overall sunny, comforting air painted by the lyrics. "Rise My Love", on the other hand, is the Eurodance thrill that "You're Not Alone" could've been, and possesses a couple of cool production effects that perks my senses: the 'electronic sizzling' (which I compare to grease cooking in a skillet) that builds up before the pounding beat takes over in the beginning and the distorted, mechanical 'whistle melody'. Calling all dance music lovers&mash;"Calling Time" is calling for you to break away and take part in this bombastic Basshunter blowout:

1. Saturday

COMPACT DISCO-The Storm (2013)


In a day where I've been reconnecting with fellow music lovers in my circles, it only seemed right that I continued reconnecting with artists I've previously had the pleasure of getting acquainted with. As the electronic/synthpop sound keeps on spinning inside of my mental jukebox, today was a good time for me to finally pick up the fourth—and currently, final—studio album by the Hungarian dance trio that calls itself COMPACT DISCO. I still like how their stylistic name was, presumably, inspired by 'compact disc'; after all, this is a CD that people are listening to their music on, and their catchy electronic dance arrangements are Eurodisco groovy in nature. Indeed, there are some electrifying, groovy jams that'll be coming over the horizon when "The Storm" rolls in with the opener, "The Guardian", which is quite an engaging song that talks about the songwriter who deems himself to be a woman's divine protector. It would be the first of a select group of slower-tempo tunes that, although they steered clear of the disco dance floor, made for pleasant listens nonetheless. "Miracle" is the second one of that group; it's nice on the ears, despite its rather haunting words. But nothing haunts the senses more than Track #8's "The Phantom", whose dark ambiance and edgy intensity are the perfect backdrop to a song about a man feeling like he's being watched by somebody lurking around the corner (the double-layered contrasting vocal effects further contribute to the 'ghastly' mood here). It's a creepy three-and-a-half minute ride for sure, but it's personally one of my favorite moments! Not nearly as creepy, but there's another one I love that's got some intense edge to it:as well: "We Will Not Go Down". High-powered intensity is more like it, thanks to the pounding electronic rock dance beat and the lead guy's bold declaration of the title lyrics repeatedly delivered in the energetic chorus. That's just one of the pure Eurodisco thrills brewing here on "The Storm"; equally igniting that spark is the dreamy trance cut ironically called "Serenity" (well, the mellow vocals and the twinkly chords do instill a certain feeling of peace, actually) the progressive drum n' bass cut, "You Don't Care" and the ambient, airy trance affair that is "It's Calling You". I get a real charge out of the latter, thanks to its ultra-glitzy instrumental arrangements and its distinctively 80's synthpop flavor; both that and "You Don't Care" are highly recommended if you like your electronic jams with lots of shimmer and glitz! Then perhaps the most charming moment of all: the breezy, easy-listening concluding piece, "I Want More". What starts off simple enough evolves into quite the epic presentation when his soaring vocals earnestly cry out the title lyrics in the chorus. There hasn't seemed to be anything else brewing on this Hungarian trio's storm front since this album's release, but for now, I'll take this small ten-track package and add it to my compact disc collection:

1. The Guardian
2. The Storm
3. You Don't Care
4. Serenity
5. Miracle
6. One Of Those Days
7. It's Calling You
8. The Phantom
9. We Will Not Go Down
10. I Want More

MIIKE SNOW-Happy To You: The Jackalope Deluxe Edition (2012)


There are so many artists that I want to reconnect or further my listening explorations with, and with the 80's synthpop sound having sparked my music interests lately, I felt it was time for Round 2 with this Swedish electronic/indie rock band I've had the unexpected pleasure of becoming attached to. A brief yet interesting recap on how I got hip to MIIKE SNOW in the first place: my wandering, always-nostalgic and sometimes rather quirky mind occasionally digs up things I learned from elementary and middle school, and for some unknown reason that I've still yet to figure out, the historic Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan popped up into my mind. Out of curiosity, I wondered if someone had ever recorded a song about the founder of the Mongol Empire, which then led to a quick Google search and, ultimately, an actual real song called "Genghis Khan"—a remix, no less!—by this Swedish band whom I'm giving the spotlight to for the second time. That said song, I've since found out, appears on MIIKE SNOW's third album, but not yet wanting to jump too far ahead with my listening to their music, I've elected to continue going in chronological order, bringing me now to discuss this special edition of their sophomore release. I can immediately say that it will require just about as many listens of "Happy To You" as their self-titled debut did before I totally understand the meanings behind the lyrics to a lot of these songs.....and that was a lot of listens! One time through definitely won't be enough—if not for grasping the symbolism of the lyrics and their equally cryptic titles, then for re-immersing myself in the wonderful synthesized electronic arrangements that the instrumental music lover in me fell victim to once again! In fact, there is at least one distinctive element on every song that struck me. With the opener, "Enter The Jokers Lair", it's the long, drawn-out 8-bit video game-inspired drones that remind me of something straight out of the classic Super Nintendo game, "Super Mario World". On "The Wave", it's the tasty trio of the keyboard, the pounding bass and the marching drum beat, with the light, lofty voice of lead singer Andrew Wyatt repeating the words 'stirring up the wave' finding a way to get me hooked. "Devil's Work" becomes devilishly good when the arrangement shifts to an almost Eurodance style rhythm in the latter half of each pass of the chorus. "Vase" (I like how he says 'vahz' instead of the pronunciation I'm more accustomed to) charms with Wyatt's lofty vocals delivering the super-catchy 'la la la la la' against the warming chords of the high-pitched tones following the main chorus; I'd even classify this one as a sort of electronic chill-out session. Chilled is right—I found myself getting lost in the melody and the music of "God Help This Divorce", which is one song in particular here whose lyrics I must pay closer attention to the next few times around because its excellent presentation deserves it. I must have a thing for looping chorus lyrics, because I also got hooked to the repetitive 'say you will' on this album's sixth track—that, plus the 'whistle melody' and the rest of the electronically synthesized glitz. "Archipelago": never in my life did I think I would ever hear a song with this title that describes a group of three islands clustered together (or is my memory of geography and social studies class eluding me?). I love the production work here: the indie pop/rock rhythm, the flashy ragtime-style arrangement of the keyboards, the downtempo faded grooves adding an ambient texture..... Meanwhile, I could only gather up something about the Ice Age and road rage from the lyrics, but there's much more happening on this song than that. "Black Tin Box": another curiously-titled song that talks about jewelry before somehow progressing to black sheep, which made me think about that old familiar English nursery rhyme, "Baa Baa, Black Sheep" ('have you any wool?, yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.....'). Possibly this album's best jam is the lively dance extreme that is "Padding Out". 'You say, is it hard, padding it out, padding it out' easily comprise THE catchiest hook on this whole album, and I applaud them for creating several extended dance remixes of it on the second CD. Speaking of which, that extra part of the package contains a pair of bonus tunes: "No Starry World" and "Garden". A smile of appreciation I had for the latter, considering I'm a gardener and have an overall appreciation for nature and the outdoors. Yet like the other tunes, the lyrics to this one too got me caught up in a shroud of perplexing obscurity, especially the line of ' someday, we'll be eyes in the garden '. Perhaps we will, but for now, all eyes are on "Happy To You", and the music here should make you happy indeed:

CD #1

1. Enters The Jokers Lair
2. The Wave
3. Devil's Work
4. Vase
5. God Help This Divorce
6. Bavarian #1 (Say You Will)

Shane Filan-Right Here (2015)


Me thinking about catching up on a lot of previously-heard artists—and just all things music gifted to me over the past few months altogether—reminded me that I've still got a ways to go to catch up completely with everything concerning the Irish boyband bunch that, up until three years ago, entertained the popular music world together as WESTLIFE. Since then, the boys have pursued individual interests, thought at least a couple of them have forged onward with new solo careers: Markus Feehily and, tonight's honorary guest here at "The Music Spectrum", Shane Filan. It was quite a while ago when I had my first crack at checking out the latter former WESTLIFE member's accomplishments—that being his 2013 debut, "You & Me"—and now I've finally gotten around to his follow-up effort released two years later. "Right Here" was actually right on time; after a long hard day of work and practically running myself into the ground, I was totally in the mood for something of the easy-listening variety, which I surmised as soon as this ten-track treat kicked off with the charming opener, "Me And The Moon". Charming is indeed the word I'd choose for many of these tender, short-and-sweet selections that Shane and his beautiful voice offer up for the rest of the way through. It was a pleasure hearing him paired up with the alluring strong chords of a Nadine Cole—not to mention the noticeably Irish instrumentals—of "I Could Be" and the soulful collective backing him up on the moving title track, which starts off soft and mellow before it all climaxes with a majestically epic finish! It sure sounds like there's someone singing alongside him on "I Can't Get Over You"—during the second and third pass of the main chorus. But whether it is or not, it serves as a terrific contrasting 'double voice' effect on this other moving song where the gripping guitar instrumental struck me first before his even more gripping words of 'did you love me at all?' touched me and my senses. It's all pure Shane everywhere else, and some of the purest moments are when it's just his voice and the minimal accompaniment of a instrumental companion—"Better Off A Fool" and the warming piano acoustics, for instance. Marvelous music moments spring up as well on the beautifully comforting guitar-driven piece, "Beautiful To Me" (I love how his voice just melts into the music here and how it rises on his deliveries of 'beautiful' in the chorus) and on the special pair where his voice is truly almighty and soul-liberating: "Your Love Carries Me" and "Effortlessly You". 'Just be, just be effortless you'—those words from this ninth track stuck to me somehow, and they're quite valid to use as my declaration that very little effort is needed on your part to enjoy this album:

1. Me And The Moon
2. I Could Be (Duet with Nadine Cole)
3. Right Here
4. Beautiful To Me
5. Your Love Carries Me
6. Better Off A Fool
7. Worst Kind Of Love
8. I Can't Get Over You
9. Effortlessly You
10. All My Love

MODERN TALKING-2000: Year Of The Dragon (2000)


You knew this one was coming—a feature presentation on this celebrated German synthpop duo of Thomas Anders and Deter Bohlen, right after my alluding to them in my previous presentation on FAIR CONTROL. I have been looking forward to resuming my musical joyride backwards with MODERN TALKING for several days now. 'Backwards', I say, because I had began with their newest albums and progressing in reverse chronological order, my ears and I believing we'd already conquered everything they released back in the 80's. Their ninth album, then, would be the next in their decades-long dynasty to be slayed. Although this is the day I would finally take on "2000: The Year Of The Dragon" for size in its entirety from start to finish, I've had the pleasure of slaying a good portion of this mighty nineteen-track beast before with a couple of their familiar tunes: "China In Her Eyes" and "Avec Moi". The former I remember well from a compilation of greatest hits I indulged in not too long ago—the recognizable majestic drum intro, the breezy accompaniment of the airy woodwind giving the music its delightful Far Eastern touch, and Thomas Anders' adorably lofty vocals singing ' China in her eyes, can you feel it? ' and the nearly inaudible ' can't you see, it's you and me ' in that second chorus. Had never heard the 'Eric Singleton Remix' that serves as the bonus treat at the very end (yep, I had to skip down to it out of curiosity); I love how this guest MC spices up the original with the cool hip hop flavor of the added rap lyrics! As for "Avec Moi", my memory of it isn't as crystal clear, but it was sure a pleasure being allured once more by the mellow tonality of the chords and the energetic rhythm! There are so many other Eurodisco-style jams that excite my music senses here: the bangin' beats and the very 80's sound of the chords to "Don't Take Away My Heart"; "My Lonely Girl" (the majestically epic intro is similar to that of "China In Your Hands" with the bells and cymbals clashing before the glitzy Eurodisco takes over); the festively bouncy, Latin-flavored "No Face, No Name, No Number" (the Spanish guitar rhythm totally gets me thinking about of any of those hits by the 90's all-male dance group, NO MERCY); "I'm Not Guilty" (a jam that is cut waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to short for my taste!); and especially the mega-groovy pair of "Walking In The Rain Of Paris" and "Love is Forever". I would get reminded by how much of a charmer Thomas Anders can be when the beats slow down on the warming ballad, "It's Your Smile", plus my new-found favorites of "Can't Let Go" and "Fight For The Right To Love" (the piano/orchestra combination makes both of these romantic pieces so easy to get lost inside of). 2000 may have been the year of the dragon, but I can mark 2017 as the year that the dragon's been resurrected so that its music can live again:

1. China In Her Eyes (Album Version)
2. Don't Take Away My Heart
3. It's Your Smile
4. Cosmic Girl
5. After Your Love Is Gone
6. Girl Out Of My Dreams
7. My Lonely Girl
8. No Face, No Name, No Number
9. Can't Let You Go
10. Part Time Lover
11. Time Is On My Side
12. I'll Never Fall In Love Again
13. Avec Toi '
14. I'm Not Guilty
15. Fight For The Right Love
16. Walking In The Rain Of Paris
17. Fly To The Moon
18. Love Is Forever
19. China In Her Eyes (feat. Eric Singleton)

FAIR CONTROL-The Single & Maxi Collection (2016)


It's been an 80's music affair here at "The Music Spectrum" for the past several days, and I'm staying on cruise control as the joyride continues with yet another newly-addicting batch of tunes. The German synthpop duo that called itself FAIR CONTROL was recommended to me late last summer, that recommendation including lots of interesting background information about how their sound closely resembled that of MODERN TALKING (whose music I am also still catching up on). I'm sure Dieter Bohlen and Thomas Anders fans have already been hip to FAIR CONTROL for some time now; as for me, it's only been a month since I started tuning in to this rare compilation of their hits. Unfortunately, this is as far as my joyride with this duo will go, as they would never release any full-length albums in their abbreviated career together. As such, repeated replays of these same handful of songs has had to suffice.....and I'm not even sure if I've gotten completely filled up on them yet! What started off as a casual listen via my car's iPod has become embedded in my mental jukebox (so has been the theme with me lately), and the song in this single and maxi collection that I've gotten addicted to the most is "Broken Dreams". I just love the glitzy, energetic synthpop beat—it's so 80's!—and their lofty, melodic vocals during the chorus where they sing 'broken dreams in the night' against the rather haunting sound of the chords. So glad that they created an instrumental-exclusive version for my ears to enjoy! Though I feel like I've heard three of the other tracks a hundred times more, probably because there are three versions of each of them: "Symphony Of Love" (I like the simple, bouncy beat and the warming, lofty chorus where the words ' it's the symphony of love ' get stuck to me), "Angel Eyes" and, what's become my #2 favorite, "We Can Fly" (the fluid flow of the music and the collective voices singing 'we can fly, we can fly together, you can make it shine' makes this such a lovely song). "Letter From India" is the standalone track with no apparent mixes nor accompanying instrumentals, but it sticks out because of its subtle Far Eastern-inspired synthesized arrangement. Yes indeed, this FAIR CONTROL duo really does sound a lot like MODERN TALKING; I only wish I had much more of their music to talk about:

1. Symphony Of Love (Single Version)
2. Angel Eyes (Single Version)
3. We Can Fly Together (Single Version)
4. Letter From India
5. Symphony Of Love (Maxi Version)
6. Angel Eyes (Maxi Version)
7. We Can Fly Together (Maxi Version)
8. Broken Dreams (Maxi Version)
9. Symphony Of Love (WolfBack's Remix)
10. We Can Fly Together (Original Extended Version)
11. Symphony Of Love (Ultrasound Extended Remix)
12. Angel Eyes (Instrumental)
13. Symphony Of Love (Extended Relax Version) '
14. Broken Dreams Suite (Instrumental)
15. Symphony Of Love (Remix 2015)
