Assault & Flattery is Toronto's sixth and final album, released in 1984. The album features only two original band members, Anne "Holly" Woods and Scott Kreyer. Released as "Holly Woods & Toronto" which hints at Holly's increasing control and autonomy in the band at this time. The album was produced by Mike Flicker who produced five albums for Heart - the band Toronto are most often compared to. The CD release includes the bonus track "Where Are We Now?" - which was also performed by Holly herself, as a solo artist, on her CD Live It Up!.

The research is thorough and the writing compelling in historian Regier's latest, but the appeal of this academic exploration of the art and history of flattery will likely be quite limited. The author of Book of the Sphnix and editor of Masterpieces of American Indian Literature, Regier compiles 128 "rules" of flattery culled from artists, authors, philosophers, statesmen and kings that take readers through the history of what happens "when praise seeks a reward" (Rule 1). Explaining flattery's role in professional and personal relationships through time and around the world, Regier's far-reaching study includes forays into business, art, fable, family, government, gift-giving and God, as well as a double handful of illustrations. Despite its brevity, readers will need patience to stick with it; if they do, they'll be rewarded with a trove of rhetorical-philosophical gems: "Flatteries are the building blocks of fame," "Poets are the aristocracy of flattery," "Flattery is the school for praise." Unfortunately, the total is significantly lesser than the sum of its parts.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
This Greenslade's album is excellent, quite progressive and a bit keyboards oriented. The tracks are very varied. The 2 keyboardists use most of the imaginable vintage keyboards: rhythmic piano, clavinet, harpsichord, floating mellotron, rhythmic organ, Fender Rhodes and moog, among others.

The last album from the original Greenslade does indeed feel like a lightweight afterthought, but this lends it a charming and unique lack of conceit. Animal Farm, Newsworth, The Flattery Stakes and The Ass's Ears are ridiculously catchy and memorable keyboard-driven pop/rock songs, and the rest of the record is never less than intriguing. Dave Lawson's lyrics are intelligent and concise, though putting the boot into the music press can't have helped their profile! An unpretentious and thoroughly enjoyable listen. (amazon)

Der Sturz von den Klippen am Cap Flattery hätte leicht tödlich ausgehen können. Doch Hanna überlebt - dank dem Makah Indianer Greg.

With this fourth installment of the Stradella Project, Andrea De Carlo and Ensemble Mare Nostrum continue their exploration of the oratorio output, following the recent rediscoveries of San Giovanni Crisostomo and Santa Editta. A pretty dancing-girl at the imperial court of Antioch in Syria, Pelagia, is the object of rivalry between an evil angel, Mondo (the World), urging her to enjoy life to the full before old age destroys her beauty, and Bishop Nonno of Edessa, who with the help of a good angel, Religione, invites her to a life in the service of God.

Into the Light contains Chris de Burgh's highest-charting single with the ballroom elegance of "Lady in Red," peaking at number three in 1987 and remaining on the Billboard charts for 14 weeks. This song, with its sweeping romantic tempo and classy feel, is reminiscent of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" as de Burgh's sincere flattery for his lover is exquisitely sung. Even his voice seems more pronounced, as it resonates and then lowers into a softer tone. Besides the hit single, much of the album remains lush and mellow in the style of de Burgh's usual ballads. On songs like "Last Night" and "Spirit of Man," his seriousness and honesty break through to showcase his passion for his work…

Richard Stengel - Il manuale del leccaculo
Italian | 2016 | 294 pages | ISBN 8876258981 | EPUB | 0,3 MB

Probabilmente è stato Satana il primo adulatore della storia, ma certo oggi l’uomo non è secondo a nessuno. D’altronde, come Il manuale del leccaculo (titolo originale You’re Too Kind: A Brief History of Flattery) dimostra, l’adulazione fa parte del nostro patrimonio genetico ed è un comportamento che ci ha aiutato a sopravvivere fin dalla preistoria.
Richard Stengel illustra quest’arte con ironia e ricchezza di documentazione, partendo dai nostri progenitori e attraversando la storia di religioni e civiltà: dall’amore per il Dio geloso dell’Antico Testamento agli appassionati biglietti che una collaboratrice della Casa Bianca indirizza al presidente degli Stati Uniti, da Platone al mondo medievale dei trovatori, la cui indelebile traccia informa il nostro moderno discorso amoroso.
