Debut work of Lady Kim, released in Japan via Eighty-Eight's, sublabel of Village Records. A whispering ballad with a voice that seems to have a deep sadness reminiscent of Billy Holiday. Up-tempo songs filled with coquettish charm are just overflowing. Originality-rich vocal style makes the most of her charm. This album is mainly made up of songs that Billy Holiday did not take up (the only exception is bonus track "Strange Fruit" only recorded as homage).

In 1983, just about every up-and-coming hard rock guitarist was mesmerized by – and copying – Eddie Van Halen's two-handed tapping technique. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, came Yngwie Malmsteen, who introduced "classical metal" to the masses. Before making a name for himself as a solo artist, Yngwie was briefly a member of L.A. rockers Alcatrazz, which resulted in a studio album (1983's No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll) and a live album (1984's Live Sentence). But come 2010, an archival live album appeared from the band (from the "Yngwie era"), Live '83. As its title states, the album is comprised of live performances from the same year that Alcatrazz's debut album was released…

Released as the Cars were slowly breaking up, Ric Ocasek's second solo album This Side of Paradise was an attempt to establish himself as a viable commercial solo artist, and while a few songs – such as the single "Emotion in Motion" – are hypnotic and melodic, most of the songs fall flat, falling prey to weak melodies or labored production.

Norah Jones took liberty with her blockbuster success to set out on a musical walkabout, spending a good portion of the decade following 2004's Feels Like Home experimenting, either on her own albums or on a variety of collaborations. Day Breaks, released four years after the atmospheric adult alternative pop of the Danger Mouse-produced Little Broken Hearts, finds Jones returning home to an extent: it, like her 2002 debut Come Away with Me, is a singer/songwriter album with roots in pop and jazz, divided between originals and sharply selected covers. Such similarities are immediately apparent, but Day Breaks is much slyer than a mere revival…

The decades of Western adulation for the Japanese 'economic miracle' failed to notice a key point: that in the pursuit of this miracle the Japanese had turned their country into a degraded, concrete shambles - a wilderness of bad planning, corruption and crowding.
