David Gilmour ‎- About Face (1984) [Original US Pressing] {Vinyl Rip 24Bit/96khz}

David Gilmour ‎- About Face
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz | 900mb
Mastered By Doug Sax
Label: Columbia/PC 39296 | Release: 1984 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

Gilmour made only 2 alums: about 6 years separate them. On this one, the keyboards are really modernized, despite there is an omnipresent accessible organ sound. Gilmour’s lead vocals are excellent, as always. Some parts are really symphonic (beautiful orchestral arrangements). There are very sustained emotional guitar solos, like on the “Let’s get metaphysical” track. “Blue light” almost has a big band rock style, as reveal the trumpet-like sounds, slightly reminding me the horns arrangements of It Bites’ “Whole New World”. There are some excellent fretless bass parts, and Gilmour’s excellent acoustic rhythmic guitar is omnipresent. A couples of songs were written with the help of Pete Townsend. All the songs are very good.

Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon (2016) [Pink Floyd Records ‎- PFRLP8] {VINYL RIP 32BIT/192KHZ}

Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon (2016)
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 32bit/192kHz | 1,93 Gb
Label: Pink Floyd Records PFRLP8 | Release: 2016 | 00:43:05 | Genre: Rock

By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon. The primary revelation of Dark Side of the Moon is what a little focus does for the band. Roger Waters wrote a series of songs about mundane, everyday details which aren’t that impressive by themselves, but when given the sonic backdrop of Floyd’s slow, atmospheric soundscapes and carefully placed sound effects, they achieve an emotional resonance. But what gives the album true power is the subtly textured music, which evolves from ponderous, neo-psychedelic art rock to jazz fusion and blues-rock before turning back to psychedelia. It’s dense with detail, but leisurely paced, creating its own dark, haunting world. Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one. ~~ AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Sepultura – Discography (1986-2017) [Vinyl Rip FLAC 24bit/192kHz]

Genre: Thrash Metal
Year: 1986-2017

Sepultura is a Brazilian heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte. Formed in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, the band was a major force in the thrash metal and groove metal genres during the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their later experiments drawing influence from alternative metal, world music, nu metal, hardcore punk and industrial metal. Sepultura has also been credited as one of the leaders of the second wave of thrash metal in the late 1980s and early-to-mid-1990s.

The band has had several lineup changes throughout its existence, with Max and Igor Cavalera departing in 1996 and 2006, respectively. Sepultura’s current lineup consists of vocalist Derrick Green, guitarist Andreas Kisser, bassist Paulo Jr. and drummer Eloy Casagrande. Since Igor Cavalera’s departure in 2006, there have been no original members left in the band. Paulo Jr., who has been a member of Sepultura since 1985, is the only member to appear on every release. Kisser, who replaced Jairo Guedz in 1987, has played on all of the band’s studio albums, except for their debut Morbid Visions (1986) and the split Bestial Devastation (1985).

Sepultura has released fourteen studio albums to date, the latest being Machine Messiah (2017). Their most successful records are Beneath the Remains (1989), Arise (1991), Chaos A.D. (1993) and Roots (1996). Sepultura has sold over three million units in the United States and almost 20 million worldwide, gaining multiple gold and platinum records around the globe, including in countries as diverse as France, Australia, Indonesia,United States, Cyprus and their native Brazil.


Iggy Pop & James Williamson – Kill City (1977) [USA BOMP 1st press] [Vinyl Rip DSF DSD128]

Iggy Pop & James Williamson – Kill City (1977) [USA BOMP 1st press]

Label: Bomp Records | Release: 1977

To say Iggy Pop had hit bottom in 1975 is an understatement; after the final collapse of the Stooges, Iggy sank deep into drug addiction and depression, and he eventually checked himself into a mental hospital in a desperate effort to get himself clean and functional again. At the same time, James Williamson, his guitarist and writing partner in the last edition of the Stooges, still believed their collaboration had some life in it, and he talked his way into Jimmy Webb’s home studio to record demos in hopes of scoring a record deal. Iggy checked out of the hospital for a weekend to cut vocal tracks, and while the demos they made were quite good, no record companies were willing to take a chance on them. The tapes sat unnoticed until 1977, when Bomp! Records issued the 1975 demos under the title Kill City after Iggy launched a comeback with the David Bowie-produced The Idiot. Kill City never hits as hard as the manic roar of the Stooges’ Raw Power, but the songs are very good, and the album’s more measured approach suits the dark, honest tone of the material. The sense of defeat that runs through “Sell Your Love,” “I Got Nothin’,” and “No Sense of Crime” was doubtless a mirror of Iggy’s state of mind, but he expressed his agony with blunt eloquence, and his sneering rejection of the Hollywood street scene in “Lucky Monkeys” is all the more cutting coming from a man who had lived through the worst of it. And in the title song, Iggy expressed his state of mind and sense of purpose with a fierce clarity: “If I have to die here, first I’m going to make some noise.” Considering Iggy’s condition in 1975, his vocals are powerful and full-bodied, as good as anything on his solo work of the 1970s. The music is more open and bluesy than on Raw Power, and while Williamson’s guitar remains thick and powerful, here he’s willing to make room for pianos, acoustic guitars, and saxophones, and the dynamics of the arrangements suggest a more mature approach after the claustrophobia of Raw Power. Kill City is rough, flawed, and dark, but it also takes the pain of Iggy’s nightmare days and makes something affecting out of it, and considering its origins, it’s a minor triumph. (more…)

Iggy Pop – Blah-Blah-Blah (1986) [England First Press] [Vinyl Rip WavPack 32bit/192kHz]

In 1983, Iggy Pop’s career was in shambles, but an unexpected windfall arrived thanks to Iggy’s frequent benefactor David Bowie. Bowie recorded “China Girl,” a song Bowie and Pop co-wrote, for his album Let’s Dance, earning Iggy some large (and much-needed) royalty checks. Wisely realizing he was running out of second chances, Iggy decided to make the most of his good fortune; he steered clear of drugs, learned to cook his own meals, started putting money in the bank, and used his savings to bankroll a new album. David Bowie offered to help, and together they came up with Blah Blah Blah, the most calculatedly commercial album of Iggy’s career. Like The Idiot, Blah Blah Blah was heavily influenced by Bowie’s input; however, while The Idiot was made by a man creating intelligent and ambitious art rock, Blah Blah Blah is the work of a popmeister looking for hits and not afraid to sound cheesy about it. In the liner notes, a member of Duran Duran is thanked for the loan of a drum machine, and that speaks volumes about the production; Blah Blah Blah is slick in a very ’80s way, dominated by preprogrammed percussion and swirling keyboards. And in the four years since Zombie Birdhouse, Iggy hadn’t come up with much in the way of material; the only truly memorable tracks are “Real Wild Child (Wild One),” a neat bit of electro-processed rockabilly (previously a hit for Australian rocker Johnny O’Keefe), and the moody “Cry for Love,” co-written by former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones. Both of these songs were minor hits, so Blah Blah Blah succeeded on its obviously commercial terms, but that doesn’t change the fact it’s one of Iggy’s least interesting albums, and has dated worse than almost anything he’s ever recorded.

On July 7th & 8th 2016, David Gilmour performed two spectacular shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben’s classic film Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii.
The concerts were the first-ever rock performances played to an audience in the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which was built in 90 BC and entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. David Gilmour is the only performer to play to an audience in the arena since the time of the gladiators, almost 2,000 years ago.
The concert performance film, David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, was shot in 4k by director Gavin Elder and includes highlights from both shows. The concert is a spectacular audio-visual experience, featuring the famous huge circular cyclorama screen as well as lasers, pyrotechnics and stellar performances from an all-star band.
The film includes songs from throughout David’s career including the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island. Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971. Both concerts also saw extraordinary performances of The Great Gig In The Sky from The Dark Side Of The Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist.

Anathema – 6 albums (1998-2015) [Vinyl Rip 24Bit/96Khz]

Anathema are a British rock band from Liverpool.The line-up consists of singers and guitarists Vincent and Daniel Cavanagh, their brother Jamie Cavanagh on bass, siblings John and Lee Douglas, respectively drummer and singer, and keyboardist Daniel Cardoso since November 2012.

The band was founded as Pagan Angel in 1990 by the three Cavanagh siblings, John, and singer Darren White, as a death/doom band. At the time White was the only singer of the band. The following year, Jamie left and was replaced by Duncan Patterson. Under this line-up, Anathema released their first EP, The Crestfallen (1992), and their first album, Serenades (1993). However, White left in 1995; Vincent decided to act as Anathema’s vocalist in addition to his guitarist function in the albums The Silent Enigma (1995) and Eternity (1996), which were going into a more gothic metal direction.

In 1997, John left the band, and was replaced by Shaun Steels for the album Alternative 4 (1998). Both Patterson and Steels left the same year, replaced by Dave Pybus and a returning John Douglas, while former My Dying Bride keyboardist and violinist Martin Powell also joined the band (Daniel Cavanagh was also acting as the band’s only keyboardist, and shared this position since). The only album released with this line-up was Judgement (1999): the same year Powell switched positions with Cradle of Filth’s keyboardist Les Smith who joined Anathema, and Lee Douglas, John’s sister, was added to the line-up as a backing and occasional lead vocalist.

The band released their sixth album A Fine Day to Exit in 2001, turning to an alternative sound. Shortly after the release, Pybus announced his departure and was replaced by the band’s original bassist, Jamie Cavanagh, reuniting the three brothers in the band for the first time since 1991. There were no new members for the next ten years, with the albums A Natural Disaster (2003) and We’re Here Because We’re Here (2010) all being recorded and released by the same line-up, with the sound turning even more towards progressive rock; however, Daniel Cavanagh left Anathema in 2002 to join Antimatter, returning in 2003. Smith left Anathema in 2011, and Vincent and Daniel both assumed the function of keyboardist for the band’s ninth album, Weather Systems, in 2012. The same year, Cardoso, the band’s live keyboardist since 2011, joined as a full-time member.

The band’s tenth studio album, Distant Satellites, was released on 9 June 2014 via Kscope.

Ray Davies and company had already participated in one failed television musical when the movie Percy came along — it wasn’t as original as Arthur, nor did Davies have nearly as much to do with its creation, but he still outdid himself given the material at hand. Directed and co-produced by Ralph Thomas, who had been responsible for some brilliant thrillers (The Clouded Yellow, Above Us the Waves) and very popular comedies (Doctor in the House) in past decades, Percy was the story of the world’s first penis transplant (it was probably inspired, or at least justified, by big-budget efforts of the period like Myra Breckinridge). Although virtually unseen in the United States, it was still popular enough to yield a sequel (Percy’s Progress), but its real impact came from its soundtrack. Davies wrote some hauntingly beautiful ballads (“The Way Love Used To Be”) and some solid blues and country as well — “God’s Children” and “Animals in the Zoo” have turned up on some career anthologies, but there’s a lot more to Percy than those two tracks. “Completely” is as fine a slow blues as the band ever recorded, with a sizzling performance by Dave Davies, and “Dreams” is a pretty solid rocker, even up alongside “Animals in the Zoo.” To this day the album has never appeared in the U.S. catalogue — recorded at the tail end of their contract with Pye Records in England and Warner/Reprise in America, and connected with a movie that was never going to see much exposure in the U.S.A., Reprise passed on it at the time.
