4.0 out of 5 stars Repeat herself.....never, 21 April 2003
Music sees a brilliant shift in styles from her last album Ray of Light. Whilst it would've been easy for madonna to stick to a tried and tested formula, shes brave enough to bring Mirwais into the fold to produce some of her most daring and clever music to date. Those who found her last single Amrican Pie a bit off putting will have been pleasantly surprised by the sound of Music.
It kicks off with Music, an outstanding retro dance number that spirals off at the end in an exuberant fashion. An out and out ode to the freedom of dancing and a good summation of what madonna has done through her career.
Impressive Instant follows perfectly and is another clever dance number that… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a classic, 21 April 2003
Pauls solo career for the 4 years post the Beatles had been a rather patchy affair. After starting off with two decent albums, he followed that up with two very below par Wings efforts that prompted much mocking of the Wings line up, particularly the inclusion of Pauls wife Linda on keyboards. Here however, reduced to the three core members, Paul, Lindaa & Denny, they produce the kind of rock/pop music that the seventies were meant for.
Recorded in Lagos, their surroundings meant that they recorded an album that had a consistent sound about it, something all Wings previous efforts had failed at. Kicking off with two of pauls best songs, Band on The Run and Jet never fail to lift you… Read more
