I am totally checking out some albums... nice really nice... here's a list you can look out for...
- Starfield - Beauty In The Broken... their self-titled debut not too happening, I find Beauty a much more interesting ride.
- Leeland - Sound of Melodies... a little taste of Coldplay but better.
- Chris Tomlin - Not To Us.. and his latest See The Morning... great songwriter here...
(edited: sorry... wrong album. Didn't quite like "Not To Us"... the album after, "Arriving"... now that's a good one.)
- Brenton Brown - Everlasting God... not a thrilling ride but nice tunes to worship and relax with... good songwriting here too.. very Vineyard
- Monk & Neagle... this self-titled album is so cool. Their songs are all celebration about their love for their wife... groovy and catchy tunes... acoustic guitar driven
And for the holiday season...
- Holiday Jazz 2005 - Various Artiste.... this is very cool if you like jazz... big names here too... Sergio Mendes, Al Jarreau, Lee Ritenour... etc
and some other albums which I have yet to set my ears to..
- Steven Curtis Chapman - All I Really Want For Christmas
- Christina Aguilera - My Kind of Christmas... I stumbled on this... dunno when it was recorded but demo-ed it and it sounded cool
- Mariah Carey - Merry Christmas... a classic by Mariah when she was actually singing.... well you figure it out... good singing here good album.
- Jewel - Joy: A Holiday Collection.... haven't heard this yet but I really like her latest album "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland"... nicely done.
