BRUNO MARS "XXIV magic" cd, 2016:

career stats:
studio albums.............3
singles......................19

this album...................#2 US...#3 AU...#2 CAN...#3 UK
singles:
"24K magic"................#4 US...#3 AU...#3 CAN...#5 UK
"that's what I like"......#79 US

Bruno's third and latest set...
a great performer of funk/r+b/soul IMO...
sounds like James Brown vocally with his funk material and Michael Jackson with his ballads...
this album has less of the funk and more of the slower ballads than his previous albums...
hated the lead off single when it came out, and still do...
was worried the album would follow suit but I needn't have worried, the guy is a class act IMO...
love most of the album with its slower tracks and love all of his albums equally...

I LOVE THIS ALBUM

worst track: 24K Magic
best track: too good to say goodbye

EMINEM "the marshall mathers lp"  cd, 2000.

revisiting this classic...
his third of eight...
hadn't heard of him previously and I asked my son what he was listening to
at that time, his reply "Eminem and Limp Bizkit", I went down the cd store and
listened to both...
loved them both...
the humour on this one is superb and his wordplay is second to none IMO...
bought it immediately...
not my favourite of his, his fourth (Eminem show) and seventh (recovery) just top it
but still an excellent example of what rap music should be...

from the album, the brilliant "stan":  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOMhN-hfMtY
