This week’s obsessions


This week I have an obsession for 3 songs. These are:

1. September – Satellites
2. Cypress Hill – Ganja Bus
3. Carla Bruni – Raphael
(thanks to Irina)

3 completely different genres, 3 completely different moods inspired, 3 great tracks. There’s something magic about this number…

Dissapointed by Scooter


I am a great fan of the German techno band called Scooter. I specially love their early albums, their style and them being constant in their approach towards their original (and simple) rhythms. Also, they perform great on live stages.

But their last album, the 2005 “Who’s got the last laugh now” really disappointed me. I couldn’t find one song which to like, not to mention a great hit.

Songs like “RAMP! The Logical Song”, “Fire”, “Weekend” and even experiments like “She’s the sun” or “Summer wine” used to impress me (and still do), but the latest album proves to be a total disappointment.

Even though they used some old tricks like the “childish voice” or the famous “dub dub dub…”, all the songs lack power, lack consistency and the old Scooter spirit.

I hope they will come up with something better soon, or else I’ll keep listening to the old tracks.

In summary…
Best thing: none on this album
Worst thing: the “Privilege to witness” track.
Overall: they get a 3 for this album and an overall 8 for their career so far.

Why the Music Blog


This blog started out of passion. A deep passion for music, which I had since…since the beginning (since that Led Zeppelin 18 years ago).

This blog does not have as aim to gather traffic, high fidelity visitors or even attention. It is just a blog about music, where all the contributors (yes, there are more of them) are free to express their opinions as straightforward, as passionate and as less argumentative as they want to. Because it’s about passion, and passion can only be this way.

The Music subject, (even for individuals like ourselves, the contributors), is much to large to be presented and detailed in a comprehensive manner. But we will try to bring your our latest (or not-so-latest) thoughts about music, about bands which make us smile, make us angry, make us happy or just make us passionate.

About myself: In the music field, I started (as far as I can remember) with bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd (the famous 3 bands…), Queen, Bob Marley and so on. I moved then to rock, heavy metal and various metal variations for about 5-6 years. I also went through rap, raggae, blues and more. And I continuously experiment and discover new things. Some of all this are to be shared here.
