QUEEN

PLAYLIST

From the band's 1973 self titled debut album, when they were just a great Classic Rock band I chose the one outstanding track for me, "Keep Yourself Alive".  There was actually a first version of "Seven Seas Of Rhye" on the album but it was a very short instrumental, I didn't include this one!.



From 1974's "Queen II" there was only one track I could pick, the superb "Seven Seas Of Rhye", as previously mentioned this was half written at the time of their debut so the instrumental version was included there.  This version is totally different to what they initially thought it would be come, a blistering Rock track with a comedic style ending of "I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside".  Class!


"Sheer Heart Attack" released later…

"THE DEBUT ALBUM"


By Andrew Goodwin for NEW MUSIC EAR www.newmusicear.com.

ALBUM SUMMARY - Alexis has appeared in several West End musicals but this album wouldn't be what you would expect from such a star.  It is in fact a great Pop Rock album coming with catchy choruses, ballads, emotive and anthemic vocals with lots of guitars thrown in for good measure! All the songs were written by the man himself and it has been created by the help of crowdfunding by fans.  Included here are nods to Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Goo Goo Dolls and Fall Out Boy.  After reviewing his debut single, "Sweet Angel" and loving it I was hoping for more of the same rocky fare and I wasn't disappointed.  Awesome debut by a genuine guy who loves music and loves making …

ADAM ANT


PLAYLIST PART 2


I must admit I wasn't very fussed on this album but when compiling tracks for this playlist I found that it was a great Pop Rock album.  I eventually found more than the famous "Apollo 9" "rockers in space" track and the anthemic "Vive Le Rock".  Both had to be on the list but I found more.  The big and bouncy Doors' like "Miss Thing", the chug-a-chug 60s style of "Razor Keen" and the Billy Idol style of "Rip Down".  Also here are the mysterious, atmospheric "Scorpio Rising" and the quirky Rock of "Hell's Eight Acres".  Completing the tracks is the almost Acoustic jam of "No Zap".



1990's "comeback" album "Manners & Physique" came as a shock to Antfans with…

ADAM ANT

 PLAYLIST PART 1

From the original 1979 Adam And The Ants' debut album, "Dirk Wears White Sox", arguably the most innovative Punk Pop album, comes quite a few tracks.  Nine of the album's 12 tracks are on the playlist.  The Punk ballad "Digital Tenderness", the dark "Nine Plan Failed" and the rip roaring darkly comical religious rocker "Day I Met God", one of my favourite Ant tracks are all here.  The unusual emotive love song "Tabletalk" and a kind of humorous homage to "Cleopatra" all couldn't be ignored.  Also included is the Ants' take on Kennedy's assassination in "Catholic Day" and the weird and wonderful aliens story "Never Trust A Man (With Egg On His Face)".  The manic "Animals And Men&q…

NEW MUSIC PROFILE - ELECTRONIC DANCE POP ARTIST ALEX MARIE BRINKLEY

Image
Alexandra Marie Brinkley was born in Fort Worth, Texas in USA.  Alex says she wants people to relate to her music and not be alone with their problems.  The first song she wrote called " Fly" was about her being bullied at school, she went on to perform for other people and though only young she listens compassionately to her friends and other people and writes from her point of view of their troubles.


Her influences include Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato.  She is apparently a down to earth personality and very humble of her talent. When I first heard about Alex I instantly thought of Vanessa Carlton's style who is also an influence of hers along with singer pianist Sara Bareilles.  Alex has a single on iTunes called "Tell Me" and has recently released an E.P. entitled "Love Everything" which features the lovely Acoustic number "Hello Heartbreak".


Alex has since released her debut single, "Broken" to rave reviews and an E.P. …
