New CDs in 2016

written by owen, Sun, 22nd Jan at 7:15 pm

I made the mistake of letting my nephew buy me CDs when he traveled last year without giving him proper and specific requirements.

First rule is NEVER to a CD which is a mix, "best of" or greatest hits. The only greatest hits CD that I have is from Sade and recently from Tracy Chapman. They are are basically pointless and often have edited version of songs which are better left unedited. The Snoop Dogg CD (pictured) was the worst of bunch with a song called "Down for my Ns" which is hilarious to listen to in the clean version.

Of the 9 CDs he bought out of the bargin bin only the 4 on the left were even worth listening to. The Snoop dogg was awful and the Alicia Keys was the usual RNB stuff. I am not a fan of RNB but the Usher CD was pretty lit especiall the song little freak (the best beat). The Outkast CD had "Ms Jaskson" on it but I was hoping it was the one with "Hey Ya". The Outcast CD graphic was interesting to say the least.


Tracy Chapman: Greatest hits CD

I usually avoid collections if only because the songs feel out of order but I got into the groove of this one pretty quickly. And with the lyrics to songs inside the booklet I finally understood the structure of the song "fast car". My other favorites include Bang, Bang, Bang, Change, Save Us All. Tracy keeps it real. Notable quote; "Sometimes a lie is the best thing". Her songs are not suited for the get up and go crowd, but more the long day - stuck in traffic - about to run out of gas - kinda mood.
