Pushing forward like an unstoppable freight train the album by Dream Theater is a "balls to the wall" album. This week we will release Train Of Thought for the first time on coloured (clear, white mixed) vinyl in a limited amount.
Back for her third album in our classical section, The Glass Effect by harpist Lavinia Meyer is her personal journey and tribute to Philip Glass. According to Lavinia the making of the double album has been an intensely creative and rewarding process, from the selection of Philip Glass' music to the recordings process itself.
The Tunisian singer and oud-player Dhafer Youssef just released his new album Diwan Of Beauty & Odd. This release is a unique combination of Arabic and Western culture and sums up the motivation for his musical statement "There is no prototype for beauty".
For the At The Movies section we have the newest release of the The Girl On The Train Original Soundtrack by Danny Elfman. This is a solid electronic score/composition, musically creepy and perfectly fits the mystery movie thriller, which is based on the 2015 novel of the same name.
Kicks is the hip-hop orientated soundtrack with original music from Brian Reitzell, the drummer from French band Air. Including tracks from Wu-Tang Clan, Charles Bradley & MSB plus many local San Francisco Bay Area artists the music is the perfect backdrop for the film about a 15 year old boy whose dream is a pair of fresh Air Jordans.
Enjoy your weekend,
Music On Vinyl
Diwan Of Beauty & Odd is the latest album by Tunisian singer and oud-player Dhafer Youssef. He once said quite spontaneously "There is no prototype for beauty". This delightful statement is in fact adequate to sum up the motivation and sound of his new album Diwan Of Beauty & Odd.
The new album truly is a unique combination of Arabic and Western culture, it is for the first time he has recorded with an all-American band in All star formation.
Originally only released on CD in 2003, a year after their mind blowing album Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence [MOVLP781], Train Of Thought found Dream Theater back on the heavier and straight forward side of Prog Metal.
