Kelly's Best Release

Posted : 8 years, 12 months ago on 18 December 2008 12:07 (A review of My December)

After her mediocre debut album and overrated -- but good -- sophomore effort, Kelly really came into her own as an artist here. However, lack of promotion really hurt the album and it's reception.

The album starts out with the debut single, Never Again. A decent track, which probably would work better on her last album. The next track, however, is one of my favorites. One Minute is a fun, dance track. A complete 180 from my other favorite, Maybe. Just the way she opens the song with "I'm strong, but I break/I'm stubborn, but I make plenty of mistakes" reels you in. It's just her and a guitar, until around the 2:00 mark when the full band kicks in. Yet, it still keeps the same basic tone with the full band that it had with just a guitar.

There's only one song that I'd kick off the album. Yeah holds no merit compared to the rest of the album. In fact, I'd be kinda embarrassed if that that was on my album -- no matter what the genre. Kelly should have included the Dirty Little Secret b-side instead of that poor excuse for a song.

In closing, I highly recommend this album to any Kelly or pop/rock fan.

Solid Pop Effort

Posted : 8 years, 12 months ago on 13 December 2008 08:23 (A review of Delta)

At first, I saw Delta as just another generic pop artist. Then I saw her perform on Letterman. Wow! The girl's got some pipes.

I see Delta as a nice mixture of three particular singers. She looks like Brooke Hogan (I thought she was Brooke when I first saw her video), sounds like Amy Jo Johnson (with less folk influence) and has Natasha Bedingfield's ear for music. Being a big fan of the last two, it's a given that I'd like Delta.

The album doesn't jump right into the music like most albums. The opening track, Believe Again slowly speeds up--but doesn't get too fast either. The second track is the first single, In This Life.

My favorite tracks don't pop up until after the halfway point. First we have Woman, which seems to be a cry out for attention from that special someone. Then there's Brave Face and One Day. The latter would have to be my favorite track on the entire album--a plea to stop procrastinating. The former has one of the greatest lines in songwriting history: "Feels like I'm running with my high heels on/And they're chasing us/Waiting for it all to go wrong."

In the end, if you were thinking about purchasing the album, go ahead and buy it. If you haven't but are a fan of the singer-songwriter style and/or good pop, give it a listen.

Best. Genesis Game. Ever!

Posted : 9 years ago on 23 November 2008 04:18 (A review of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie)

I obviously haven't played this in a long time, but I vividly remember this being my favorite game on the Genesis. However, I sucked at Genesis games and this was one of the very few I was actually good at. I still own my Genesis, along with this game, and wish so much that I could play it one more time. It probably won't live up to my nostalgia, but it would be nice to stroll through Angel Grove and beat up putties one last time.

OMG MATURE PR~!

Posted : 9 years, 1 month ago on 30 October 2008 01:34 (A review of Power Rangers Time Force)

This seems to be everyone's go-to season for comparing Power Rangers to a prime time drama, like Smallville. Yes, it does have mature elements like death; but so did just about every other season in it's own way. In fact, one of my favorite episodes is "Movie Madness," which is one of the silliest episodes in the history of the franchise.

If anything, what this season does best is weave together the silly and serious stuff so well that you don't feel any mood whiplash. And that's why I love it so much. You'll have a two-parter that is filled with some of the most absurd things that you could think of, then immediately follow it up with a Ranger being stalked and brainwashed. But it works.

Sure, this season has it's flaws; what season doesn't? Especially one with a time traveling element. However, if you can get past the fact that half the team is pushed to the background most of the time, you'd find a nice little gem.

The Best Season of PR!

Posted : 9 years, 2 months ago on 3 October 2008 04:12 (A review of Power Rangers Zeo)

What do you get when you mix a Native American, Korean, Mexican, African and Australian? Power Rangers: Zeo, of course!

If you were one of those kids who stopped watching the show after Jason, Zack and Trini left--or maybe after Kimberly left--you missed out on some great TV. For one, the characters stopped being goody-two-shoes all the time and started acting a bit more like real people. (Not that we didn't like the walking stereotypes of season one.) Even Bulk and Skull got some real character development this season! They also got rid of the horrendously small Command Center, for a much bigger Power Chamber. Also, we received the surprising return of... Jason!

There are also some little things that I liked about this season. Like two of the VR Troopers randomly popping up out of nowhere. (Obviously the actors, not the characters.) The second group of zords--Super Zeo Zords and the Warrior Wheel--were awesome as well. With the latter possibly being the best toy ever.

In closing, if you grew up with the original series and want to get in touch with your inner child, THIS is what you should be watching.
