Das frases nascidas, depois feitas e por fim servidas ao desbarato, à ideia que me fica de tudo o que não li:
Pregas de crisálida e asas amarrotadas que se desdobram e se erguem alto, alisadas pelo punho do vento.
Assim a bandeira da liberdade, hasteada no final da obra 'Um capricho da Natureza', de Nadine Gordimer.
Sem referências nem palavras exactas à memória, a passagem por um documentário sobre Nelson Mandela.
Abeirado da cama do jovem enfermo, com toda a sabedoria dos pequenos grandes momentos e um sorriso.
Qualquer coisa como isto: 'Se não acreditares que vais conseguir e ficar bem, comprimido algum te curará.'
Até para nascer carecemos do próximo, à morte bastamo-nos.
E viver... será sempre e indubitavelmente a melhor vingança.

A motoreta que se faz anunciar pelo ruído a longa distância.
Hábitos saloios em fisionomia 'boneco de neve' sobre rodas.
Corte em dois horizontal: vime largo a reboque, visão dada.
Ultrapasso em caminho.
Excepção feita à notável clutch pendurada naquele cenário!
Há quem reinvente e quem copie.
Tudo o mais é distância diminuta.

If you're a Beck fan, you may already know of the insane amount of B-side and unreleased material that is out there. I have spent ridiculous sums of money tracking down out of print CDs, Euopean releases, etc. In any case, if you love Beck's major label releases, Stray Blues is as great an introduction as you can find as to what is bubbling under Beck's mainstream stuff. Since Amazon doesn't list the tracks, I'll give my own review of each song. You can find more in-depth info on Beck.com about these songs. 1. Totally Confused-great early acoustic number by Beck, really beautiful song. 2. Halo of Gold-from the Mutations sessions so think that vein. It wasn't my cup of tea but it's not bad. 3. Burro-this is a Mariachi version of Jack-Ass with vocals sung in Mexican by Beck! Brilliant! 4. Brother-This was from Beck's first version of Odelay, which was originally going to be all acoustiic tracks. Nice cut w/ Guitar & piano. 5. Lemonade-This song alternates between Beck acoustic and Beck singing over white noise. Only for Da Real, but if you're into Beck's experimental side you won't be disappointed. 6. Electric Music and the Summer People-I have no idea how this got left off Odelay because it's Beck's rockinest party song ever. Beck w/ electric guitar & cheesy casio but, as always, it works. 7. Clock-another Odealy out-take. I personally feel he should have left off "Where It's At" and included this. 8. Feather in Your Cap-from the "Brother" sessions, acoustic and more upbeat. Great track, you can also find this on the "Suburbia" soundtrack. Anyway, this CD only scratches the surface, but it's a great primer. You will not be disappointed, though 30 clams is a lot for 8 songs. By the way, if you ever see his song "Mexico" available it is another unreleased must have. Beck, please stop toying with your fans emotions and make your stuff more readily available!

If you have heard some Porcupine Tree stuff, and now would like to start your own collection, this compilation is a great place to do that. There is some belief that In Absentia and Deadwing are their most accessible records. It is true that they contain some very radio friendly songs, but they also contain some of their heavier material as well, perhaps not making those as good of a place to start for some. Don't get me wrong, I love those cds and those are some of my favorites (last month, it was Deadwing, this month it's Signify, next month, it may be Stupid Dream...). Back to this cd - it is a collection of early works and it does not include anything from Deadwing, In Absentia, Lightbulb Sun and Stupid Dream. It does include some great early tracks, and it's really hard to pick a favorite. Stars Die, Radioactive Toy, Nine Cats, Sky Moves Sideways are some of the gems, but there are hardly any weak songs on here. Also, you will get some alternative song versions not available elsewhere. It is simply a collection of excellent atmospheric music. Some make comparisons to Pink Floyd, and sure, there are similarities. However, these songs have a life of their own. Whenever I play this cd, I always get asked about the band. If you start with this cd, you may be inspired to go back and buy all the early albums (Signify, Up the Downstair, and so on). Another good news here is that those albums have plenty of additional excellent tracks that will make those purchases worthwhile, despite already having this collection. I would not hesitate and would purchase this cd and get into the world of PT.

In the case of "Virgin Ubiquity," song selections were culled from a massive amount of master tapes that Roy was able to keep back in the day (thanks to the negotiating of a shrewd lawyer). These songs are not throwaways or filler. In many cases, they even top the quality of material that Roy did release in the late 70s. And for this reason, "Virgin Ubiquity" is a holy grail for true Ayers (and even current acid jazz and neosoul fans), in both theory and reality. Memorable songs include the perfect "Boogie Down," with an irresistable swirling groove that will make you wonder why Roy never released it. It's already a classic in my eyes. Then there's "Brand New Feeling," which stretches nearly 10 minutes long with the sound that Ayers fan clamor for. (Some minor vocal pitch issues and one small/amusing lyrics slip-up warrant its unreleased status.) The vocals by Sylvia Cox are truly passion-fueled and intense, and Roy's comments about her and why she split from the band (in the great liner notes) will increase the mystery and, perhaps, tragicness behind this powerful performance. Virgin Ubiquity does an excellent job at spotlighting Roy's female vocalists, even more than his own vibes work. Especially in the case of Merry Clayton, the infamous 70s session singer, who sings lead on 6 of the CD's 13 cuts. (Other featured vocalists include Cox, Carla Vaughn and Dianne Ventner.) The potent, gruff-voiced Clayton shines on each track she touches -- especially on the William Allen-penned "Oh What a Lonely Feeling." If you are a fan of Ayers albums like "Everybody Loves the Sunshine," "Fever," "Let's Do It," "Searching" and everything else from '76 up to '82 (including the Ramp, Wayne Henderson & "Starbooty" releases), you'll find even more to love on "Virgin Ubiquity." You might even like it better than some of the aforementioned. Guaranteed.

R.E.M. close out their Warner contract -- not to mention their entire career -- with the double-disc Part Lies Part Heart Part Truth Part Garbage, their first compilation to combine early recordings from their time at IRS with their major-label hits for Warner. It’s misleading to look at these as merely two separate eras, as it more accurately breaks down into a three-act structure: the IRS years when R.E.M. were the kings of college rock; the stretch between 1988-1995 when they were international superstars; and then the slow decline of 1998-2011, the years after Bill Berry, the years when Peter Buck, Michael Stipe, and Mike Mills tried to redefine the group as a trio before finally realizing they’d said all they could say. Part Lies gives equal time to each act -- there are 13 songs from IRS, 14 from the golden years at Warner, 13 from the trio years (including a revival of the mid-‘80s outtake “Bad Day,” which feels like a slight stretch) -- an eminently fair move that tells the story while slightly obscuring the import of the tale. Inevitably, the jangle pop and murk of the ‘80s are downplayed -- “Can’t Get There from Here,” “Pretty Persuasion,” “Feeling Gravity’s Pull” are missing -- in favor of a heavy dose of new millennial material, including three songs from 2011’s respectable Collapse into Now and three perfectly fine new songs, which means the last ten or so cuts are songs that fairweather fans of either the ‘80s or ‘90s just won’t care much about or possibly even know. Nevertheless, this last act is shown in a good light -- the benefit of a comp is that it’s totally possible, even welcome, to downplay dull lapses like Around the Sun -- and, when combined with well-chosen highlights from the band’s powerful first two acts, adds up to a thorough narrative of R.E.M.’s entire career.
