***CDs Now Playing - Part II***
Finding good recordings is not an easy task. If everyone posted info on the best (or worst) of their collection, the rest of us would have a leg up on future purchases. In that light, this should be confined to CDs.

I buy a lot of CDs on ebay and there is a particular format the most sellers use which have short reviews of the music from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine but without mention of sound quality. I've gotten some good music that sounds so bad it's not worth playing.

I propose that Now Playing- Part II not only has the album name and artist but also a mention of the sound quality, artistic quality and music genre.

This would be of more value to the community.

I propose the format of the postings to be as follows:

Group: The Cars
Album: Heartbeat City
Genre: Pop
Sound Quality: Very Good; clean; good bass
Performance: Well done.

Well, don't everyone rush into this thing. Maybe I'll be the only one posting here.

Here's my selection for today.

Group: Weezer
Album: Maladroit
Genre: Alternate Rock, Punk
Sound Quality: Not bad at all. Expect very distorted guitars, of course.
Performance: Well done; capable

I like the sound of Yellow Moon by The Neville Brothers.
Producer Daniel Lanois.
From the same Daniel Lanois I've got Shine, I think his latest album and on Slow Giving the guitars are (I hope) deliberately so distorted that I dislike the song only for that reason.
Otherwise it's a nice recording, specially the first track has some rather low bas tunes good for testing the quality of you subs. :)


Here you go:

Group: The Neville Brothers
Album: Yellow Moon
Genre: World Music.
Sound Quality: Clarity is exeptional
Performance: Great artists

Group: Daniel Lanois
Album: Shine
Genre: Rock Pop
Sound Quality: Good, too much distortion on some songs/guitars
Performance: Top artist/producer

I forgot to respect your format, read your first post too fast.
Still I prefer to add some personal touch and explanation.
I'm sure you don't mind.
