Happy Neil Eve

Tomorrow is the day! The release of Neil's new album. Midnight tonight people! Go out and buy this record. Support the Diamond. It's worth it. It's a fanstastic record!

Sherman Jr. is up and running and just like his predecessor, he's churning out the music. We started this morning with a bit of Beth Orton. Click on her name to see the great photo on her website! She's adorable. This was the result of learning that Beth is releasing a new disc in Feb. '06! Produced by Jim O'Rourke of Sonic Youth this is sure to be a hit. I cannot wait. There is no voice like hers. It will be released through Astralwerks. I decided to take a listen to Central Reservation today. I just love "Love Like Laughter", "Sweetest Decline" and of course, the title track. To me, this release showed a more confident artist willing to take some risks. She has managed to keep her fans sated with a greatest hits collection, Pass In Time: The Definitive Collection, but new material will be most welcome. Looking forward to a tour to support the record too!

Well, the long awaited Madonna release Confessions on a Dancefloor appears to have leaked on the internet. It's also on MTV's site! I have to admit to be a fan of La Madonna's music and videos, not so much of the woman herself. I have big respect for anyone who makes it like she has. Very eager to hear some of these tracks in a club atmosphere. Loud, lotsa lights and a sweaty dancefloor. This disc straddles the sounds of 70's disco and 80's electronica. The term "future disco" is being bantered around for obvious reasons. Not sure how I am feeling about it so far. The track I Love New York sounds like Lourdes wrote the lyrics. She actually uses the word "dork" in it. Really Madonna? A bit lame by anyone's standards. I think it will be the remixes that make this a hit.

In honor of Madonna, today's Guilty Pleasure is "Crazy For You". Doesn't this song from the poignant film Vision Quest choke you up? A tour de force for Matthew Modine (what happened to him) and Daphne Zuniga (is that a name or a tree?) No matter how you slice it, that song just screams 1985! Pull out your album or better yet, watch the video and enjoy!

Less than 24 hours until Neil.......
