Welcome to our Leo love page.
Aw shucks, I guess there is more to life than the 60s - but as you'll glean from the brief takes on posts acts presented here, we're not yet convinced that there's more to life than the 70s.
Also, 80s and 90s artists have been moved to separate pages.
Margie Adam, Songwriter The "women's music" movement of the 70s produced a number of artists who rose above the stereotype of mild-mannered, piano-playing lesbians singing about unicorns. But Margie Adam embodies that stereotype pretty closely.
She has a clear voice, solid command of the piano, and competent songcraft "Beautiful Soul"but no bite: She does stretch out musically, with two piano-heavy instrumentals "Rag Bag" and the trippy breakdown in "Lost In Inner Space. Meg Christian adds guitar to one tune and vocals to another; Cris Williamson and Vicki Randle turn up on four tracks; Diane Lindsay and Linda Tillery are the rhythm section.
That it's a multiple platinum album stuffed with radio favorites? That it's the epitome of soulless, by-the-numbers 70s heavy rock, completely derivative and so testosterone-ridden that it makes Zeppelin sound cultured?
That it's more or less the loudest, riffiest, catchiest damn rock record of the whole decade? Uh, I guess so. You probably already have your mind made up about this kind of proto-grunge hedonism anyway, so it doesn't really matter what I say.
I hope no one takes these cross-culture comparisons too seriously, but I'd say Aksu's stature is as if Cher and Diane Warren were the same person Naturally, I mean that as a compliment: More curiously, "Sen Sarki" has a reggae beat and a flamenco guitar solo.
However, there are also a lot of ballads, which isn't such good news: Not to say that it's uninspired - "Lale Devri" and "La'l" are moving even if like me you have no idea what she's singing about - just that it has none of the desire to entertain one ordinarily expects from pop music.
I dig melancholy as much as anybody - which is what draws me to Turkish music, I suspect - but the unchanging dispirited mood gets a tad draining. There are limpid love songs "Vay" and uptempo near-disco the cheesy "Ayar," which sounds like it escaped from a biergarten.
There's plenty of entertainment in all these styles: It does strike me as a bit too comfortable, but keep in mind that I have a bias in favor of artists who are continually searching and against those who have fully matured. Costandinos eat your heart out! As Dave Barry would say, I am not making this up.
Allen tries her best to fill the void with diva attitude, but just can't hack it "Around The World". Mostly dance-floor-oriented, but the LP closes with two dull ballads, the racial harmony number "Colors" and the all purpose snoozer "Don't Cry Mommy.
Vocal group Asante and former Last Poet Oyerwole also pop up here and there. Too many tracks have the usual Laswell problem of oppressively boring and repetitive programmed drums; one exception is the live-sounding, organ-led jazz number "Love.
Anyway, the remake of "Niggers" is 5: All this would be regrettable but forgivable if Bin Hassan's words were as biting and bracing as his early work, but they aren't: DBW Bizarre If only. I hunted this down because soundtrack composer Alan Hawkshaw's other disco project is endlessly enjoyable, but this one-off another Band In Name Only is a flip, facile waste of time.
Try to imagine the Partridge Family cutting a disco album, and you'll be in the right zip code.
Perhaps "Delilah" hitmaker Barry Mason is largely to blame:When it comes to astrology love signs, Leo is best matched with fellow fire signs, or alternatively air signs, as they share many of their natural sensibilities and outlooks.
