Phoenix is the fourth studio album by Finnish power metal band Dreamtale. 'Phoenix,' except for a few distractions, is solid work from beginning to end. Throughout this work you will encounter several strong threads: a strong rhythm section, a solid and noticeable keyboard presence, and some very infectious melodies with big choruses. This is solid melodic/power metal and establishes Dreamtale as one of the best in the field.

Finland's Dreamtale are back with their third album Difference. It also marks the debut of vocalist Jarkko Ahola who takes the place of departed original vocalist Tomi Viiltola. However, both Jarkko Ahola and founding member/guitarist Esa Orjatsalo have since left the band just after the recording was completed for this new album. With band members bailing out and a virtual revolving door of vocalists coming in and out of this band, you have to wonder what the future holds for Dreamtale. With Difference, Dreamtale once again has delivered another solid, melodic power metal album yet shows much more diversity in sound over previous efforts.

Simon Green, aka Bonobo returns with his sixth album – the masterful, magisterial “Migration” – is a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and indeed, beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, “Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life.”

Laura Nyro - Smile (1976) [Japanese Mini-LP 2008] Re-Up  Music

After a five-year hiatus, singer/songwriter Laura Nyro returned with Smile in 1976. On this disc, Nyro's somewhat idiosyncratic writing and performance style is decidedly subdued. In its stead is a light pop and jazz feel similar to that of Maria Muldaur's mid-'70s recordings. Supporting Nyro instrumentally is virtually a who's who of New York and Los Angeles studio stalwarts. While the prowess of folks like Will Lee (bass), brothers Randy Brecker (trumpet) and Michael Brecker (flute/sax), Hugh McCracken (guitar), and Rick Marotta (drums) certainly strengthens Nyro's already laid-back material, it likewise reduces her to sounding like a Joni Mitchell ripoff. The undeniable highlight of Smile is the maturity in the songwriting. It becomes obvious that the half-decade away has done some significant good in revealing a decidedly positive evolution in Nyro's approach to her own life. What's more is that the material on this album seems to come from a place of contentment.
