In My Own Words:
I currently am in the military where I am serving a year long tour in Korea. Music is the benchmark of my life, meaning that I spend most of my paycheck on compact discs. I love to read and run. I am a dedicated worker when I am inspired to. Unfortunately, I am rather irritable when I am not. If someone handed me a Amazon.com gift certificate, I would purchase some books to read in my spare time. … Read more

Trip The Light Fantastic ~ Sophie Ellis Bextor

If there is one thing about Sophie Ellis-Bextor's single 'Me and My Imagination' missed out on, it was the cross promotion that could've taken place with Nintendo's "Super Paper Mario" game. The florescent lighting effects used in the promo video conjures images reminiscent of the 'pixl' characters that populate the game.

Missed promotion aside, "Trip the Light Fantastic" sees Ellis-Bextor's return to pop stardom after a 3 year absense from music. And what a relief it is to listen to a record that has consistency instead of a standard singles and filler pop record (a problem that nortoriously plagued her "Read My Lips" album).

At its best, the record's bass thumps all… Read more

Has anyone ever noticed that if the Spice Girls just sang Halliwell's hits, they would have kept going indefinitely? Not only is this a point to ponder, the bad press surrounding Halliwell's ability to co-write songs and effectively sing should be dispelled with this marvelous track. Funny thing is, not only is this catchy, I don't think anything released by a major record label since Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" has the power to hypnotise an entire continent. Funnier thing is, the track starts out a little like her debut single, "Look At Me," which may turn listeners off if it weren't for that dirty bass line that kicks in 5 seconds later.

Maybe ~ Emma Bunton

In the recent months that Emma Bunton resurfaced on the covers of many British glamour magazines, very little attention was paid to the music she was promoting. And with good reason. "Free Me" was a terrible choice for a single, a lavishly dull piece that really didn't suit her vocal range, but "Maybe" more than makes up for its predecessor. Miles better than "Free Me," "Maybe" features marvelous string arrangements with a rather campy 1960's retro feel. This is one of those tunes that has one of the oddest hooks but that is what makes it appealing and memorable. Definitely a keeper.
