Ephel Duath - Painter's Palette

It's hard to review without exclamations such as wow, amazing, superb, refreshingly original, innovative..
This is a unique album from a band that refuse to conform to standards. Even for the avant-garde generation of metal they are a stand-alone band for their expertly woven jazz influence. This isn't jazz metal like you've heard before where it's simply a few standard hooks with jazz instrumentalists noodling some, this is actually metal with a modern jazz perspective on how their music is composed and the genres are taken, nodded to and put into the aural blender. Great vocal range from hardcore to clean, walking bass to funk lines, smooth saxophone blue jazz tones to blistering energy, expressive guitar work, faultless drumming, electronic influence. To top it off the production is top notch. The fact that each track title can also represent a shade of the painter's colour palette, shows a desire use their ingenuity to the full spectrum.

I didn't discover this band on my own, it was a recommendation from a friend, but on my first listen I couldn't believe I hadn't heard of this before and was kicking myself. It's just too good! Albums such as these as such a rarity..

I could go on but I'd rather carry on listening and let myself get sucked into the textures of this masterpiece.

Bob Marley- Legend

Pretty rocking Marley compilation album. This is probably the only comp album I ever liked. I'm usually an album kind of guy, but the songs here are perfectly fit for what Marley have done in his career as a Reggae artist. All the songs are golden. Hits like Three Little Birds, Is This Love, Jamming, Exodus, One Love, just an amazing album for every one to be heard and experience. It has its own peace and love spiritual feeling to it that can never be recreated by any other artist.

5/5. One of the best albums my ears have graced over. If you ever want to start listening to Bob Marley, just listen to this album.
