Review from

Maybe hanging out with Jello Biafra put the fun-loving spring in Offspring's step. Or perhaps it was just the royalty checks, hot babes, and fast cars. Whatever the case, the band's fourth record, Americana, is its most lively offering to date, replacing angst and rage with energy and sarcasm. The novelty single "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)" matches infectious riffing and shout-along vocals with fly-girl chants of "Give it to me, baby" and lyrics about wannabe scenesters; and a storming punk-rock version of Morris Albert's "Feelings" sees the band hitting a new level of, er, (in)sensitivity.

Elsewhere, the humor is slightly more subtle; "She's Got Issues" cops a new-wave guitar line from the Cars songbook, "The Kids Aren't Alright" opens like an Iron Maiden anthem, and "Why Don't You Get a Job?" is a blatant reggae-style spoof of the Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." Musically, Americana offers no real revelations, but the songs are a bit craftier and more diverse than the rest of the Offspring oeuvre, veering haphazardly between anthemic punk metal, blistering hardcore, and near-psychedelic experimentation.

Review by Dark Nation:

This album is a Gem and a hard to find Gem at that. While the title track was previously found on a compilation album Rendezvous Lounge, having the band's full American Debut album available is a much better way to judge how they can perform (Because as anyone can tell you, one song does NOT define a person or band's talent, although some have proved to be exceptions) and in this respect, the band performs wonderfully.

4 Seasons 4 Loves is a stroll through the year in mood and expression, in both in the atmosphere of the music, the lyrics and even the song's titles. While 15 tracks is more then enough to covey a change over 4 seasons the mood is always properly conveyed. In a nice twist the band starts off with 'Winter', as opposed to the more conventional thinking that the seasons start with Spring. Winter is around for January to March, so kudos to the band for remembering that small detail. The vocals in the songs are a synth-laced female's voice who, in a different genre or band might come off as tacky or even downright weird, fits perfectly with the landscape-effected sounds found here. The Natural Instrumentation of Piano, Drums and Electronic sounds mesh smoothly, and allows the music to lift itself above being background music and instead transforms into a canvas of emotion and reflection.

The tempo and mood of the songs are accurately reflected in the seasons, with winter sounding more 'cold', Spring having a 'wet' and slightly playful tone, Summer giving off the sense of a warm night spent dancing or caressing with a lover, Fall being reflective and slightly melancholy, but picking up with the feeling of a cool fall day's walk through the falling leaves, and ending with a melding mesh of the seasons.

A highly recommended listen for those who are looking for an album to sit back and relax to. Personal Favorite Tracks include "4 Seasons 4 Loves", "Optical Delight" and "Fall", but all the songs on here are good. The only minor complaint is the male raspy voice, but he only appears in two tracks.

Enjoy 4 Seasons 4 Loves, because it cost me 10 bucks!

Oto no Ishi, which in translation means Sound Stone, was formed by REDALiCE and Alabaster. The album jacket design and sprites were done by qzna.

Oto no Ishi is a collection of techno club mix music from Mother. The album is over an hour long of nonstop techno beats. You can check out some short samples from select tracks found down below. This is not an officially licensed album by Shigesato Itoi or Nintendo. However it can still be purchased from Japanese online music stores. It is common for Japanese artists to make remixes and sell them for small profit. However, the artists give credit to the the Mother series and past albums for their work. This album is currently out of print.

REDALiCE and Alabaster have worked on other projects together, which can you can check out at ALiCE'S EMOTiON. This was not meant to be the only album by Oto no Ishi. In their insert and album tag there is mention of a new album on the way once Mother 3 is released. Check out the new album Oto no Ishi 2.

Review from

"This is just an absolute JEWEL. Zappa fans will recognize Terry Bozzio in addition to the Brecker brothers themselves, and MAN, what a combo! Michael Brecker just shreds on every solo, and Randy finds nuances with the "electric trumpet" that have never been heard before or since. Some will want this for the novelty of the electric tenor sax and trumpet, but there are FINE examples of modern BeBop solos here, over a high-powered rhythm section that kicks and jumps all over everything the soloists lay down. This is the kind of rhythm section that can make ANYBODY sound good, but the Brecker brothers talent is unmatched; a combination that presents an order of magnitude.

Bass players NEED to hear Neil Jason, and guitar players NEED to hear Barry Finnerty on this. Blistering tight unison lines will prove once again why Zappa saved his most intricate horn passages for these guys, and why you won't hear them at tempo with anybody else. I sincerely hope for more of this largely unexplored flavor of jazz. I haven't found anything else that quite measures up to this."

Full Review at
Some albums just feel so good, so cool, you can’t help but feel good while listening to them.

Emancipator’s Soon It Will Be Cold Enough is such an album. Incorporating hints of jazz, electronica, trip-hop and down-tempo into its violins, keys, various samples and the occasional female voice, this 19-year-old college student has put together a release worthier of the attentions of a record label.

The fact that this is funded not by a record label, but by a college student who does this in his spare time, is admirable. Pop onto his site you can even download some remixes (including his mash up remix pairing Sigur Ros with Mobb Deep. Hearing Mobb Deep rap “I’m only 19 but my mind is old” has so much added weight when melded like this). And, to boot, the music is damn cool. Highly recommended.

DN Says: I came across this on youtube, and I wouldn't have just bothered with a kid who released his music on myspace, but it really is good chillout music, so I will give it a recommendation.

What kind of toxic man-thing is happening now?
