Insane Clown Posse - The Great Milenko

Insane Clown Posse – Halls Of Illusions

This rabid, mad, wicked rock/hip-hop song is half horror-comedy movie and half awesome musical performance. Since this style is all about the lyrics, I’ll start by saying that this is one little sadistic gem. Contrasting ideal dream worlds with terrible realities, the merciless writing goes through a violent story, infesting it with dark humor coming from the blackest pits of hell.

It’s all delivered by a solid melody, diverse and very well-orchestrated (I’d say it rises far above the average hip-hop instrumentals). Guitars, percussion, vocal distortions, weird sounds of all sorts, samples – everything is brought together with excellent production values.

Tim Booth & Angelo Badalamenti - Booth And The Bad Angel

Tim Booth & Angelo Badalamenti – Dance Of The Bad Angels

A sensual, warm song develops into a majestic chant of shattering lyrical intensity. It’s always hard to write words about such amazing creations. Whatever I’d write would pale in comparison to the blinding divine poetry that is about to unfold. So I’m going to let the music be the stair and the lyrics the guiding light. Now close your eyes, sharpen your hearing and feel where it all leads to.

Savages - Adore Life

Savages – Adore

A amazing song with words so powerful they pierce through the music and reach deep within our soul. Every touch of the guitar comes at just the right moment. It’s one of those rare songs when the singing is in perfect symbiosis with the music.

The video lifts the melody to unfathomable heights. It is audio-visual poetry at its best. My recommended journey is to first listen to the song while reading the lyrics. Only then, armed with a hint of opinion and words of knowledge, should you delve into the depths of a work of art in body language.

Cold Play - A Head Full Of Dreams

Cold Play – Up & Up

Sweetness is on the menu for today. And since today is every day for every reader, sweetness is on the menu forever. Oh yes, this beautiful dreamy melody can definitely inspire us to do some thinking about the meaning of life.

I find myself lacking the words to properly describe this song. Technically, it’s a good rock piece, but really, it’s much more than that. Cold Play’s uplifting song comes along with a beautiful, dreamy, chilled-out video. Make sure you see it; I think it’ll deliver you what I can’t with words.

Au4 - And Down Goes The Sky

Au4 – In Three Seconds I’ll Be Gone

Groovy, beautifully constructed, powerful and diverse, this melody showcases fascinating vocal synergy and witty lyrics. Prepare for an unleashing of samples, synthesizers and traditional rock instruments, all of it supporting his and her voice.

This song comes from one of the best rock albums I’ve heard in the past few years. There are some impressive lyrical gems scattered through Au4’s “And Down Goes The Sky”. I highly recommend listening to the entire album, especially since it’s freely available on the artist’s website!
