Upstairs At Eric's
Audiophile - New - MOFI 1-020
Sealed, Latest Pressing Of The 2012 Remastered Reissue. "Vince Clarke Can Claim Involvement In Two Stunning Debuts In Only Two Years: Depeche Mode's Speak And Spell And Yaz's Upstairs At Eric's. While Speak And Spell Is, By Far, The More Consistent Record, Upstairs At Eric's Is Wholly More Satisfying, Beating The Depeche Record On Substance And Ambition, And Is Light Years Ahead In Emotion. "Don't Go" And "Situation" Are Absolutely Killer With Clarke's Bubbling Synth And Singer Alison Moyet's Bluesy And Powerful Delivery. They're Both Rightful Dance Floor Staples, And Have Since Undergone Numerous Remixes, Both Official And Bootleg. "Bring Your Love Down (Didn't I)" Is Just As Good A Thumper, Adding A Wonderful Mumbled Bridge That Shows How Much Clarke Enjoyed Messing With Pop Music. The Softer "Only You" Would Have Sounded Silly And Robotic If It Had Appeared On Speak And Spell, But Moyet's Vocals Makes It Bittersweet And Engaging. The Clumsier Experimental Tracks Make Most People Head For The Hits Collection, But To Do So Would Be To Miss The Album's Great Twist. The Loony Tape Loop Of "I Before E Except After C," The Skeletal "Winter Kills," And A Disruptive Phone Call In The Middle Of The Naïve "Bad Connection" Offer Up More Complex And Intimate Moments. Like Its Curious Cover, Upstairs At Eric's Presents A Fractured, Well-Lit, And Paranoid Urban Landscape." AMG Review By David Jefferies. ... more
New Import - DB 77826
Sealed 2018 180gm Remastered Reissue, Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. "On The Surface, Lodger Is The Most Accessible Of The Three Berlin-era Records David Bowie Made With Brian Eno, Simply Because There Are No Instrumentals And There Are A Handful Of Concise Pop Songs. Nevertheless, Lodger Is Still Gnarled And Twisted Avant Pop; What Makes It Different Is How It Incorporates Such Experimental Tendencies Into Genuine Songs, Something That Low And Heroes Purposely Avoided. "D.j.," "Look Back In Anger," And "Boys Keep Swinging" Have Strong Melodic Hooks That Are Subverted And Strengthened By The Layered, Dissonant Productions, While The Remainder Of The Record Is Divided Between Similarly Effective Avant Pop And Ambient Instrumentals. Lodger Has An Edgier, More Minimalistic Bent Than Its Two Predecessors, Which Makes It More Accessible For Rock Fans, As Well As Giving It A More Immediate, Emotional Impact. It Might Not Stretch The Boundaries Of Rock Like Low And Heroes, But It Arguably Utilizes Those Ideas In A More Effective Fashion." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine. ... more
New - LP - B0011141-01

Black Messiah
New - LP - 88875-05655-1
Sealed, latest run of the 2015 2LP gatefold pressing. An instant classic. "The One-Eighty Questlove Promised Back In 2012, When The Drummer And Producer Persuaded D'Angelo To Perform For The First Time In A Dozen Years, Turns Out To Be Closer To A Ten. As Those Who Caught Later Gigs And Subsequent Uploads Could Attest, There Were No Signs That D'Angelo -- Enigmatic Maker Of Two Classics That Twisted Gospel, Soul, Funk, And Hip-hop With Aloof But Deep-Feeling Swagger -- Was Developing His Third Studio Album With Production Pointers From David Guetta Or Elocution Lessons From Glee's Vocal Director. Instead, He's Made Another Album That Invites Comparisons To The Purposefully Sloppy Funk Of Sly & The Family Stone's There's A Riot Goin' On. It's More Outward-looking, Refined, And Bristly Than What Preceded It, However, And Has Much In Common With Releases From Retro-progressive Peers Like Van Hunt And Bilal. D'Angelo Retains The Rhythmic Core That Helped Him Create Voodoo, Namely Questlove, Bassist Pino Palladino, And Trumpeter Roy Hargrove, And Adds Many Players To The Mix, Including Guitarist Jesse Johnson And Drummers James Gadson And Chris Dave. Q-Tip Contributed To The Writing Of Two Songs, But A Greater Impact Is Made By Kendra Foster, Who Co-wrote The Same Pair, As Well As Six Additional Numbers, And Can Often Be Heard In The Background." AllMusic Review By Andy Kellman. ... more
The Man Who Sold The World
New - LP - DB69732
Sealed, latest run of the 2016 reissue. "Even Though It Contained No Hits, The Man Who Sold The World, For Most Intents And Purposes, Was The Beginning Of David Bowie's Classic Period. Working With Guitarist Mick Ronson And Producer Tony Visconti For The Second Time Bowie Developed A Tight, Twisted Heavy Guitar Rock That Appears Simple On The Surface But Sounds More Gnarled Upon Each Listen. The Mix Is Off-center, With The Fuzz-bass Dominating The Compressed, Razor-thin Guitars And Bowie's Strangled, Affected Voice. The Sound Of The Man Who Sold The World Is Odd, But The Music Itself Is Bizarre, With Bowie's Weird, Paranoid Futuristic Tales Melded To Ronson's Riffing And The Band's Relentless Attack. Musically, There Isn't Much Innovation On The Man Who Sold The World -- It Is Almost All Hard Blues-rock Or Psychedelic Folk-rock -- But There's An Unsettling Edge To The Band's Performance, Which Makes The Record One Of Bowie's Best Albums."

The Cars
Audiophile - New - MFSL 1-274
Sealed, latest pressing of the 180gm 2009 remaster from Mobile Fidelity with gold-foil numbering. The rear cover has the updated audio/signal path information. From the first notes of the opening track, "Good Times Roll," it is evident that The Cars have something special to offer. The album's infectious energy, catchy hooks, and sleek production instantly captivate the listener. With its blend of pulsating synthesizers, driving guitars, and Ric Ocasek's distinctive vocals, the album establishes a sound that is simultaneously fresh and familiar. Each track on "The Cars" is meticulously crafted, with tight arrangements and memorable melodies that have become signature elements of the band's sound. Songs like "Just What I Needed" and "My Best Friend's Girl" showcase The Cars' knack for writing irresistibly catchy pop-rock anthems that remain etched in the collective memory of music lovers. "The Cars" is also notable for its sleek and polished production, which was ahead of its time. The band, along with producer Roy Thomas Baker, masterfully balanced the raw energy of their performances with a precise and crisp sonic quality. This attention to detail enhanced the album's radio-friendly appeal and helped solidify The Cars' sound as both accessible and groundbreaking. ... more
Speak Now (Taylor's Version)
Colored Vinyl - New - 2448438034
