The Robert Cray Band - Time Will Tell (2003)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 435 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 164 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Modern Electric Blues, Soul-Blues | Label: Sanctuary | # 06076-84613-2 | Time: 00:48:57

Even diehard Robert Cray fans admit that over the course of the last decade, the singer/guitarist/songwriter has crafted albums that are practically interchangeable. Although Cray has created his own niche with a slick but powerful Memphis-styled R&B/soul/blues stew, his sound become repetitious; even though the songs' quality remained way above average. Since leaving Ryko (after two albums), he and keyboardist Jim Pugh -- an increasingly pivotal player in Cray's work -- produced this 13th disc between labels. That provided them the freedom to experiment without corporate intervention. While his "if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it" ethic allowed multiple Grammy wins, Cray clearly wanted to step outside the box he built, resulting in a slightly different direction this time around. Those who enjoy the comfy fit of his previous work have little to fear; there is plenty of the love-lost/found R&B that he's known for.

Ebia - Herrscher Im Orbit (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 10 | 69:24 min | 159 Mb
Style: Electronic, Ambient, Berlin School | Label: SynGate Records

Ebia's 7th album is by far the best one he did in his career, a mature composition that invites to follow the album track by track and develop different soundscapes in a smooth mastering and well balanced modulation.

R.L. Burnside with Johnny Woods - Live 1984/1986 (2009)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 5 500 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 2 channels at 192 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Blues | Label: Aditi | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 20 July 2009 | Runtime: 103 min. | 4,32 GB (DVD5)

When it comes to Mississippi-rooted blues delivered with pure passion and grit, no living performer equaled Robert Lee Burnside.
Born near Oxford, Mississippi, in 1926, he moved around and finally settled in Holly Springs, making a living on the farm as a sharecropper. At the age of seventeen he took up singing and playing guitar. One of his teachers is former next-door neighbour Mississippi Fred McDowell, one of the most influential bottleneck players ever. With its roots in the rough hills of North-Eastern Mississippi: a blend of hypnotic, almost mantra-like chords with the rhythm of the local Fife And Drum bands, which has its source in Africa and goes back to the 19th century.

Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana - Spirit Dome - Live Archive (2009)
EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 740 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 332 MB | Covers - 27 MB
Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Projekt (projekt 225)

Spirit Dome returns with a perfect companion, Live Archive. Living proof of the power of live performance, these recordings are so immediate and engaging it would be easy to assume they were crafted over months in the studio. Live Archive, from their 1997 tour, serves as a natural complement to 2004's Spirit Dome, recorded live to stereo master in one take in a studio-like environment. Live Archive was originally released as a small run on the Groove label in Holland, and has been out of print for several years...

Matthew Ryan - Boxers (2014)
Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Acoustic | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:51:03 | 119 MB
Label: Matthew Ryan | Release Year: 2014

Matthew Ryan can write a song and make you feel it in no time at all. He’s got it; he understands the craft. And on this, his newest album, Boxers, he’s got a solid winner. His songwriting style is of someone who has lived and experienced reality – life’s good and bad sides; it never sounds forced or playing at being a lyricist. There is a purity in his songs that I haven’t found in a long time – and it’s welcome and refreshing. As is the emotion that’s wrung out of his voice, which at times reminded me of Paul Westerberg. The musicianship is masterful and the production by guitarist Kevin Salem (a legend in his own right and in my opinion) is top notch. Everything about this album is right.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - The Christmas Trilogy (2004) (3CD + DVD)
DVD5 | ISO | MPEG-2 Video, NTSC 16:9 (720:480), 29.97fps, 9730kbps | DD 5.1, 448kbps; LPCM 2.0 | 50min | 3500Mb
3CD | Ape + Cue + Log | 1250Mb
Rock | Rhino/Lava R2 73884 | rel: 2004 | covers

In 2004, Trans-Siberian Orchestra finished their "Christmas trilogy" with the massive -- some would say ponderous -- The Lost Christmas Eve. Wasting none of the holiday season's precious shopping time, the Christmas Trilogy box set landed two weeks after that album, giving the band's loyal fan base a set to give -- some would say inflict -- to their friends. Then again, maybe they'll just want to hold on to the set since there's a DVD with appearances by Jewel and Michael Crawford and the lavishly illustrated booklet includes all the lyrics and background stories.

Angela Hewitt - Bach: The Art of Fugue (2014)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:29:29 | 214 MB
Label: Hyperion | Release Year: 2014

Even though Angela Hewitt's repertoire is quite extensive and diverse, encompassing the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern eras, her true specialty is the music of J.S. Bach, which she has recorded almost exclusively for Hyperion since the 1980s. With this recording of The Art of Fugue, Hewitt completes her long-running series of piano renditions of the solo keyboard works, and while not everyone is convinced that Bach composed this study of fugal techniques for the keyboard, Hewitt's performance is credible and satisfying. She controls the often unwieldy counterpoint by regarding the lines as if they were vocal parts, and her phrases are shaped by natural breathing points, as well as the different emotional qualities she brings to each fugue and canon. The Art of Fugue can be daunting for both performer and listener, because its persistent tonality of D minor and monothematic material can be quite tedious in the wrong hands. Fortunately, Hewitt fights boredom by infusing the music with the full range of expressive and technical possibilities at her disposal, and her full performance has the nuances and variety of her recordings of the Well-Tempered Clavier and the Partitas. Just as this masterpiece was the culmination of Bach's thinking on the subject of the fugue, it is a fitting conclusion to Hewitt's worthy service to the composer and a high point in her catalog.

Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin - Down in The Alley (1993)
Blues | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Alligator ALCD 4816 | rel: 1993 | 335Mb

On Down in the Alley, his first album for Alligator Records, Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin doesn't quite follow though on the success of its predecessor Chicago Blues, yet that's only a relative scale. Margolin is one of a handful of musicians to keep classic Chicago blues alive in the '90s, both through covers and original material. His association with Muddy Waters is, if anything, overhyped by journalists and Alligator alike, but it has to be said that he does Muddy proud with down-and-dirty recordings like this.

New Order - A Collection (2005)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 4 322 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: AC-3 6ch. at 448 Kbps, PCM 2ch. at 1 536 Kbps
Genre: Rock, Electronic | Label: Warner Music Vision | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 3 Oct 2005 | Runtime: 139 min. | 7,28 GB (DVD9)

Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of the 1980s; embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture many years in advance of its contemporaries, the group's pioneering fusion of new wave aesthetics and dance music successfully bridged the gap between the two worlds, creating a distinctively thoughtful and oblique brand of synth pop appealing equally to the mind, body, and soul.

Charlotte Church - Back To Scratch (2010)
Classical, Pop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 47 min | 109 MB
Label: Dooby Records | Rel: 2010

Having an empirically good singing voice must be a terrible burden at times. The expectation is that you can sing anything and make it beautiful; any daft lyric, any stunning classic, anything from Wagner to N-Dubz. If you’ve got The Voice, you can make it shine. Back to Scratch is an album that works best in fragments. There are songs which hark back to Charlotte’s teenage years, spent belting out arias and show tunes in front of an orchestra, and there are more modest songs with ukuleles and mandolins – We Were Young is a particularly lovely example. There are fun songs with light lyrics and deep songs with purple lyrics. There’s even a song – Ruby – which has been recorded to sound like a dusty old jazz 45. You might love all of it, but possibly not in one sitting.
