Sinéad O'Connor - "I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss"

Image
This is a Rock album by a singer/songwriter of impressive talent.  I think this record shows maturity and growth of a very personal and human kind.  It feels like a triumph of everything in her life that led to this point as well as the launch pad of everything that will come after.


Bitter Fruit - "It Gets Worse"

Image
I don't like every punk band I hear and I can't exactly describe why I like one and not another.  Bitter Fruit fills a void for me I haven't had an entry in for a long, long time.  The sound is grungy and dark, harboring anger with a sense of humor.  The artwork of member Jack Bradley immediately drew me in.  The use of brilliant colors on images of violence, horror and grossness is intriguing and attention getting.  The band's sound echos these images in capturing both the angst and the luminescence of life.


Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadow - "Mitternacht"

Image
How can a mere mortal describe the entity and primary creative force behind Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadow?  Anna-Varney Cantodea is hard to accept as a real being.  She seems so otherworldly and surreal you naturally want to assume she is a character, like Elvira, that someone just dons temporarily to entertain.  The truth is that Anna-Varney is her own creation and her own person.  We are enriched in this world that someone could live so bravely honest with who they are and how they feel.  That Anna-Varney has the talent and the willingness to express her inner thoughts and emotions is awe-inspiring.
