The return of Whitney Houston

Apparently Whitney Houston is planning a comeback, with a new album in early september (at least it is scheduled to be released September 2nd here is Sweden.

Today one of our online newspapers offered a free download of a single from that album, the title track “I Look To You“. It might not be as strong as some of the ones from her glory days, but her voice has survived the years well. The song is a soft ballad.

Judging from this one song the upcoming album is definitely worth checking out when it is released.

New Kids On The Block – The Block

Ok so i know this album was released last year but i figured i better blog about something and seeing as though I loved New Kids the first time round i chose this album of theirs.

They have changed their sound a bit though. They have some really great collaborations on the album aswell with the likes of Lady GaGa and also The Pussycat Dolls aswell. My favourite song on the album is Summertime, Twisted is also another good song.

But the album seems to have lost some of the things that i did originally love about New Kids but they seem to have been replaced by other things that i love about them now. Although over the years since they last had an album out my taste of music has changed quite a bit for example i now love the likes of Bon Jovi and Cascada so i have broadened my taste. Still it is good to hear from New kids if only for old times sake.


The original setup was done in 1999 under the name Tender and had three members. In 2000 they changed to Takida and released their first record, a 5 track demo album named Old.

Currently Takida consists of Robert Pettersson (vocals), Tomas Wallin (guitar), Mattias Larsson (guitar,) Fredrik Pålsson (bass) and Kristoffer Söderström (drums).

In 2005 they were signed to their first record label and released their debut album, Make You Breathe (released in April 2006 in Sweden). They had before that released some material on their own, one full album and four singles.

Their latest album, Bury the lies was released in 2007 and they had a number one hit in Sweden with the second single, Curly Sue, from that album. Curly Sue was number one for 10 weeks.

You can view a couple videos at their MySpace page:


This is Boyzone’s greatest hits album. If you like Westlife then you probably will also like Boyzone (Well they both do share the same Manager)

To be honest the songs sound as good today as when they were first released.  They also have new songs on like Love you anyway, which i think is boyzone back to their best. The video for the song is really good aswell. The one good thing about Boyzone is they appeal to all ages.

I really dont know what else to say but I think Boyzone are a great band and they still sound good to me. Its really good to have all there greatest hits together on one album aswell. I know if i didnt already have it i would of loved this in my xmas stocking hehe.

Amy McDonald – This is Life

I heard her song, This is Life, on the radio, took me a while to find out who sang and what the song was named. It’s not always they do tell what they are playing right before or after a song. Sometimes they do say that “we’re gonna give you a song from xxxx but first this one from yyyy”. And the fact that I hardly ever listen to radio other then at work didn’t really help either, as sometimes my workplace is far to noisy. Read the rest of this entry »
