I'm well aware that this is a soundtrack, but I have listened to this album nonstop and I can say that it does indeed personify many aspects of this new Godzilla film. FYI, I am a huge fan of Godzilla. This new movie was in my opinion, perfect. The score that Desplat made for the movie was just as good and honestly I can't give it enough praise, that's how much I love it! It pays tribute to previous Godzilla composers such as Maestro Akira Ifukube and Masaru Sato. I highly encourage everyone to see this film and give this soundtrack a listen. Definitely one of my favorites for the year, let alone the month.

My thoughts: Six songs, 43:35, nothing repetitive, as fluid and facile as anything and as deep and permissive and as good as Blonde On Blonde (almost, like negligibly close). If you like it I highly recommend checking out not only Scaruffi's 90's page but also http://www.scaruffi.com/music/critics.html, good places to dig around for rock, not perfect, but Fleba (a critic on there) has a good deal to say I think, and check out Allmusic for previews (but not ratings). The warmest and most hopeful album I've ever heard and not at all a novelty, so listen to it whenever. More than anything I've been struck by how the songs are extremely linear, which is a breath of fresh air, I don't think there's an album out there quite as different while still abiding (superficially) to phraseology and at times even structure. Tonality is key, here. G.O.A.T. list for sure.

I bought this limited edition remastered 3 months ago and my album of the month for June. I'll post July's at the end of the month.

Saor: Aura

Beautiful, soaring, post-rock-inspired black metal featuring British Isles folk instrumentation (the tin whistle will leave the strongest impression) and absolutely stellar production. Typically music like this comes off a bit cheesy, but the depth of the arrangements (and the never over-powering vocals and non-metal instrumentation) and sense of place this album imparts allow it to transcend the rather D&D vibe (not necessarily a bad thing) that other similar bands inspire. Top-tier pagan black metal for certain, nipping at the heels of Drudkh, Negura Bunget, Primordial, and Winterfylleth, though vastly more accessible (imo) to the non-metal listener than those bands. Check it out on Bandcamp.

RAM / Paul McCartney. (remastered 24kt gold disc by Steve Hoffman). My favourite album.  Listening w/HD650 & Vintage Kenwood KA-8006 Int. Amp., 1974, 75WPC.   LOUD !!!!!!  


- Excerpt from article on RAM album ….  "Elton John later said that it was the best harmonies he'd heard on an album in a long while …."

Jason Isbell "Southeastern"

Some of the best song writing I have heard in years.

If you like Americana, Country, Folk, etc....you should definitely check it out.
