Pain - Coming Home (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Pain
Title: Coming Home
Genre: Rock, Heavy Metal, Industrial Metal

“That's me, designed to piss you offˮ - when Peter Tägtgren is ascending from the depths of his legendary Abyss Studio to take the microphone, a little musical revolution is inevitable. Because what else would you expect from HYPOCRISY's death metal veteran, who not only plays industrial metal with PAIN, but is considered to be one of the most influential producers in the metal scene (DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, SABATON etc.), and just recently launched his controversial project LINDEMANN in partnership with RAMMSTEIN's frontman Till.
Since the beginning of his career in the early 90s, the Swedish allrounder has enjoyed diving into the extreme and has grown to be an untameable force. But this is exactly what makes him so fascinating. Taboos, creative stagnation or genre boundaries have never existed in the world of the 46-year-old mastermind. And, of course, Peter Tägtgren wandered the same unexplored paths when the time came to forge »Coming Home«, the 8th studio release of the industrial institution PAIN. However, the path was long and winding and therefore, the writing process for the follow-up of 2011's »You Only Live Twice« wasn't all fun and games - but Peter Tägtgren is well prepared for the fight.
Therefore, it is no wonder, that PAIN deliver a revolutionary mix of styles on this new release - bizarre alternative metal meets electronic melodies - and, in addition, the band weave some spectacular orchestral arrangements into the tracks on »Coming Home«, without risking any cheesy moments or overloading the songs. The result are ten highly addictive metal hymns with massive depth and experimentation. Especially with the orchestrated parts, PAIN entered a new era and seeked assistance from CARACH ANGREN's Clemens “Ardekˮ Wijers, who added some magical final touches to Peter's bombastic songwriting. But PAIN also allow the album to breathe with beautiful acoustic guitar intros appearing hand in hand with stormy moments, showing the band at the zenith of their creativity.

Oasis - Be Here Now (1997/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Oasis
Title: Be Here Now
Genre: Rock, Alternative/Indie Rock, British Trad Rock, Britpop, Hard Rock, Rock & Roll
Label: © Big Brother Recordings
Release Date: 1997/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:11:35
Recorded: 7 October 1996 – 2 April 1997, Abbey Road Studios, AIR Studios, Orinoco Studios, Master Rock in London; Ridge Farm, Surrey

Arriving with the force of a hurricane, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now, is a bright, bold, colorful tour de force that simply steamrolls over any criticism. The key to Oasis' sound is its inevitability -- they are unwavering in their confidence, which means that even the hardest rockers are slow, steady, and heavy, not fast. And that self-possessed confidence, that belief in their greatness, makes Be Here Now intensely enjoyable, even though it offers no real songwriting breakthroughs. Noel Gallagher remains a remarkably talented synthesist, bringing together disparate strands -- "D'You Know What I Mean" has an N.W.A drum loop, a Zeppelin-esque wall of guitars, electronica gurgles, and lyrical allusions to the Beatles and Dylan -- to create impossibly catchy songs that sound fresh, no matter how many older songs he references. He may be working familiar territory throughout Be Here Now, but it doesn't matter because the craftsmanship is good. "The Girl in the Dirty Shirt" is irresistible pop, and epics like "Magic Pie" and "All Around the World" simply soar, while the rockers "My Big Mouth," "It's Getting Better (Man!!)," and "Be Here Now" attack with a bone-crunching force. Noel is smart enough to balance his classicist tendencies with spacious, open production, filling the album with found sounds, layers of guitars, keyboards, and strings, giving the record its humongous, immediate feel. The sprawling sound and huge melodic hooks would be enough to make Be Here Now a winner, but Liam Gallagher's vocals give the album emotional resonance. Singing better than ever, Liam injects venom into the rockers, but he also delivers the nakedly emotional lyrics of "Don't Go Away" with affecting vulnerability. That combination of violence and sensitivity gives Oasis an emotional core and makes Be Here Now a triumphant album. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Noel baroque - Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, Francois Lazarevitch, Maitrise de Radio France, Sofi Jeannin (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, François Lazarevitch, Maîtrise de Radio France, Sofi Jeannin
Title: Noël baroque
Genre: Classical
Label: © Alpha Classics | Outhere Music
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 01:00:20
Recorded: january 2015 at the Auditorium de Radio France

The result of patient restoration work, this programme of carols gains the light and freshness of original, inspired rereadings by Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien and La Maîtrise de Radio France. François Lazarevitch went back to the sources assimilated by Charpentier, Delalande and Corrette to reconstruct the original texts and melodies of their Yuletide works. At the same time, he sought to revive the texture of patois and regional accents, the multicoloured nuances of the pastoral character from which flutes, oboes and musette rise to the surface; the cadenced phrasing and inventive ornamentation recalling a first life as dancing or drinking songs.

Nigel Price Organ Trio - Heads & Tales, Vol. 2 (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Nigel Price Organ Trio
Title: Heads & Tales, Vol. 2
Genre: Jazz, Post Bop, Soul Jazz, Guitar Jazz
Label: © Whirlwind Recordings
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:51:01
Recorded at Konk Studios, London, June 28/29, 2016

British guitarist and composer Nigel Price follows up his Heads & Tales released in 2011 with this double album, rooted in the blues and hard bop traditions, echoing the fluidity of the likes of Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery and Louis Stewart. On the first part, Price revels in his collaboration with Hammond organist Ross Stanley and drummer Matt Home. He is also joined by saxophonists Alex Garnett and Vasilis Xenopoulos on a number of tracks, adding further weight and dynamism to the guitarist’s material. The second session, intimately recorded entirely as solo guitar performances or duo overdubs, pulls into even sharper focus the demanding intricacies of Price’s varied technique.

"It means the world to me to play great music with these guys, to be able to make it happen and to get it out there to the people. That’s what really matters to me." --Nigel Price

New Order - Power, Corruption & Lies (1983/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: New Order
Title: Power, Corruption & Lies
Genre: Pop Rock, Electronic, New Wave, Synthpop, Dance Rock, Alternative Rock, Post-Punk
Label: © Warner Records 90
Release Date: 1983/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 42:30
Recorded: 22 October–14 November 1982, Britannia Row, Islington

A great leap forward from their funereal debut album, Power, Corruption & Lies cemented New Order's place as the most exciting dance-rock hybrid in music (and it didn't even include the massive "Blue Monday" single, released earlier that year). Confident and invigorating where Movement had sounded disconsolate and lost, the record simply pops with energy from the beginning "Age of Consent," an alternative pop song with only a smattering of synthesizers overlaying an assured Bernard Sumner, who took his best vocal turn yet. Unlike the hordes of synth pop acts then active, New Order experimented heavily with their synthesizers and sequencers. What's more, while most synth pop acts kept an eye on the charts when writing and recording, if New Order were looking anywhere (aside from within), it was the clubs -- "The Village" and "586" had most of the technological firepower of the mighty "Blue Monday." But whenever the electronics threatened to take over, Peter Hook's grubby basslines, Bernard Sumner's plaintive vocals, and Stephen Morris' point-perfect drum fills reintroduced the human element. Granted, they still had the will for moodiness; the second track was "We All Stand," over five minutes of dubbed-out melancholia. Aside from all the bright dance music and production on display, Power, Corruption & Lies also portrayed New Order's growing penchant for beauty: "Your Silent Face" is a sublime piece of electronic balladry. --AllMusic Review by John Bush

New Order - Brotherhood (1986/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: New Order
Title: Brotherhood
Genre: Pop Rock, Electronic, New Wave, Synthpop, Dance Rock, Alternative Rock, Post-Punk
Label: © Warner Records 90
Release Date: 1986/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 37:08
Recorded: 1986, Jam, London; Windmill Lane, Dublin; Amazon, Liverpool

New Order had been so good at integrating synth and guitars (often on the same song) that fans who greeted 1986's Brotherhood with the realization that it was split into a rock side and a dance side couldn't help but be a little disappointed. Still, the songs and the band's production had reached such a high level that the concept worked superbly, without calling undue attention to itself. The rock side comes first, revealing more of the emotional side of Bernard Sumner's singing and songwriting, even leading off with acoustic guitar for one song. But Brotherhood was also a little harder than what had come before; Sumner often sang with a come-on sort of brio, matching Peter Hook's seething work on the bass. The songwriting was excellent, and the album was delivered with great pacing, especially on the first four tracks -- sensuous and roiling for "Paradise," bright and emphatic on "Weirdo," reflective for "As It Is When It Was," then back to direct and upbeat on "Broken Promise." The synthesizer side was similarly assured, beginning with one of their brightest singles (and biggest transatlantic hits), "Bizarre Love Triangle." There was no dark side to Brotherhood, as there was with Low-life; after "Bizarre Love Triangle" came only the Middle Eastern fusion of "Angel Dust" and the simple, pastoral synth pop of "All Day Long" and "Every Little Counts." For better and worse, this was a New Order with nothing more to prove -- witness the tossed-off lyrics and giggles on "Every Little Counts" -- aside from continuing to make great music. --AllMusic Review by John Bush

Neil Young - Peace Trail (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Neil Young
Title: Peace Trail
Genre: Rock, Hard Rock
Label: © Reprise Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:38:22
Recorded: Shangri-La Studios, 2016

The 21st century revived Neil Young's radical spirit and, along with it, his sense of musical adventure. These two strands converge on Peace Trail, a rickety record written and cut in the wake of his 2016 live album, Earth. Neil wrote Peace Trail quickly and recorded it even faster, pushing through ten songs in four days with the support of ace drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Paul Bushnell. According to Bushnell, most of the album consists of first or second takes but Peace Trail sounds like it entirely comprises rehearsal tapes, with the rhythm section lagging behind as they follow Young's basic chord changes. In form, almost all of the ten songs are folky protest numbers but Neil slashes through his hippie haze with shards of overamplified harmonica, guitar squalls, and vocoders, the modern world intruding on his melancholy reveries and subdued anger. It's interesting aesthetically, but the problem with Peace Trail isn't the concept, it's the execution. Intended as a musical bulletin à la "Ohio" or Living with War, Peace Trail is filled with songs about its precise moment in time -- "Indian Givers" is about the protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline, "Terrorist Suicide Hang Gliders" concerns rampant xenophobia -- but the execution is so artless it veers toward indifference. Young's songs are so simple they feel jejune and the performances are intentionally ragged, with Keltner and Bushnell stumbling through rhythms as if they're learning the songs as they're being recorded. To compound the oddness, the production by Young and John Hanlon is deliberately scattered with sound effects, displaying a flair assembled with more care than either the album's composition or recording. All this adds up to one of Neil Young's genuinely strange albums, a record that's compelling in its series of increasingly bad decisions. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
