A Classic (5 stars)
Brilliant, especially "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," "Levon," and "Tiny Dancer." Elton John is a genius who has given millions of fans the soundtrack of our lives. As for the tired Tony Danza remark made by the courageously-nicknamed "Anonymous," the only thing worse than your creepy homophobia is your embarrassing lack of originality.

Rock on, Elton!

Give and Take (5 stars)
To say that these are the greatest hits doesn't do justice to what Elton was putting out in the mid 70's.
The original Greatest Hit Vol 2 didn't have Tiny Dancer or I Feel like a Bullett but did have Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word and Don't Go Breaking My Heart. I am guessing that the movie Almost Famous brought about Tiny Dancer, but adding I Feel like a Bullett is a mystery. A fantastic tune but never received any airplay in its day.

Someone saved my life tonight may be my favorite Elton John song. But then there are those other 300 or so…

Biography

Born: March 25, 1947 in Pinner, Middlesex, England
Genre: Pop
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

In terms of sales and lasting popularity, Elton John was the biggest pop superstar of the early '70s. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers with equal aplomb. He could dip into soul, disco, and country, as well as classic pop balladry and even progressive rock. His versatility, combined with his effortless melodic skills, dynamic charisma, and flamboyant stage shows, made him the most popular recording artist of the '70s….

Beastie Boys

Biography

As the first white rap group of any importance, the Beastie Boys received the scorn of critics and strident hip-hop musicians, both of whom accused them of cultural pirating, especially since they began as a hardcore punk group in 1981. But the Beasties weren't pirating — instead, they treated rap as part of a post-punk musical underground, where the D.I.Y. aesthetics of hip-hop and punk weren't that far apart. Of course, the exaggerated b-boy and frat-boy parodies of their unexpected hit debut album, Licensed to Ill, didn't help their cause. For much of the mid-'80s, the Beastie Boys were considered macho clowns, and while they dismissed that theory with the ambitious, Dust Brothers-produced second album, Paul's Boutique, it was ignored by both the public and the press at the time. In retrospect, Paul's Boutique was one of the first albums to predict the genre-bending, self-referential pop kaleidoscope of '90s pop. The Beasties refined their eclectic approach with 1992's Check Your Head, where they played their own instruments. Check Your Head brought the Beasties back to the top of the charts, and within a few years, they were considered one of the most influential and ambitious groups of the '90s, cultivating a musical community not only through their music, but with their record label, Grand Royal, and their magazine of the same name.

Customer Reviews

Great transitional album! (5 stars)
This is an album you listen from start to finish. Every song leads to the next giving you a sense of dread and disparity. Listen to this when you are down and want to fall even deeper into the abyss. This will be your soundtrack for that adventure. This was also Depeche Modes transition from an uptempo synth pop band to a more a slow brooding synth pop band. Love this record.

Depeche Mode In All Their Moody Glory! (5 stars)
Today is April 4, 2012 and this album has suddenly popped into 'My Alerts'. Who knows why? At any rate, this 1980s classic has such seminal tunes as Black Celebration, A Question of Time, Stripped and But Not Tonight. If you wonder where some of today's artists got their influences, listen to this album, and you will see that Depeche Mode stood for more than just 'Fast Fashion'. It also meant trailblazing music.

FINALLY!!!! (5 stars)
I have been waiting for this album to come on Itunes ever since I became a Applezombie This is a amazing album from top to bottom Question of Lust and Dressed in Black are my faces…enjoy

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Basildon, Essex, England
Genre: Pop
Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electro-pop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more…

Our Review

It’s strange that the 1986 fantasy film Labyrinth failed at the box office when there was so much going for it. Jim Henson peppered the movie with Muppets, and it featured a young and beautiful Jennifer Connelly. It also starred a Fu Manchu-by-way-of-Andy Warhol-looking David Bowie, who wrote and recorded six songs for the soundtrack. Even the Trevor Jones score is a cool mix of ‘80s-flavored synthesizers and pointed guitars. Bowie’s “Chilly Down” is sung in character as Jareth, the evil Goblin King, but it sounds like a wonderfully cartoonish mix of Let’s Dance and Tonight-era Bowie, and there’s even a rap in the middle of the tune! With “Hallucination,” Jones approximates tripping out with warbling melodies and bent strings before a very unpsychedelic saxophone slips in and straightens things out. Bowie’s “As the World Falls Down” sounds like a less-daunting version of “This Is Not America” (which he recorded a year prior for the soundtrack to The Falcon and the Snowman). The smooth and soulful “Underground” proves to be the standout jam.

Customer Reviews

Unbelievable (4 stars)
David Bowie's voice in Labyrinth is hauntingly beautiful and fantastic through every note. Within You was a song that stayed in my head for years after I watched the movie for the first time and Magic Dance is a song that can still get me to sing along and even dance with David Bowie as the movie plays in the backround. Trust me…If you are a Bowie fan you will not want to miss out on these songs.

Bowie Appreciation (5 stars)
As a kid, I always HATED the masquerade party sequence. I thought it was boring (no Muppets!?) and too romantic (what kid likes that?). Looking back, older and wiser, that sequence has one of the best songs in the movie. Listen to "As the World Falls Down" and tell me it's not heartbreakingly good. Do it now! I dare you.

Magic Dance and Within You… (5 stars)
PWN ALL OTHER SONGS. If you haven't seen the movie and aren't planning to get a song… watch the movie. Then, tell me you didn't like it. Go down the bog of eternal STENCH. MUAHAHAHAHA 

Biography

Born: January 08, 1947 in Brixton, London, England
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music-hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock album,…
