| DAAU "Life Transmission"
Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung moved from Sony Classical to Columbia and
enlarged the line-up from 4 to 5 men, maybe the reason that this has become their
most varied and impressive album so far.
Adamo "Par les temps qui courent"
This monument of the French chanson has far from sung his last song, as he is
more popular then ever (especially in France). In 2001 he was knighted, published
a book, and releases this CD. Logic that your "Time Flies" when you're
working so hard.
Leyna Ash "En Toute Sérénité"
Leyna Ash is a half-Tunisian, half-Belgian girl, who makes her debut with this
CD. As was made obvious by the singles "Laisser Aller" and "Un
peu d'innocence", this is commercial pop with french lyrics, made with the
help of Thierry Plas (Machiavel, Purple Prose) and Kevin Morane.
Axelle Red "Alive"
In 2000, Axelle Red toured France on the (AR) tour, and this CD (also availble
with an extra DVD) is a faithfull representation of the music (and public) during
these concerts. And the setlist is a "Best of". That the good news,
the sad news is in my review ...
Band that came together when Scottisch/Turkish singer Esra Tasasiz teamed up with
a trio of advertising musicians in Brussels. The result can be labelled as triphop
with influences from Massive Attack, Hooverphonic, Air ...
AngeliCo "No rest for the Wicked"
Debut-cd of a number of non-debutants (with a past in bands such as Sin Alley
and Ashbury Faith), and with an number of great songs à la Garbage.
Ambrozijn "Naradie" Second
CD by this quartet of young, highly talented, and ever-searching folk-musicians,
who take further steps in their attempt at renewing the way to play traditional
Aiming Dishes "Vertical Divine"
Duo with a background in the Candy Dates, making an exercise in pure pop with
crystal clear vocals and fine arrangements, style courtesy of Squeeze, Crowded
ABN "Seriewoordenaar" Second
cd of these inventors of the term "Frithop" (hiphop in Flemish), who
have outgrown that label since. With nice guest-appearances of Luc Devos, Ya Kid
K and Janez Detd.
Akyra "Freak Voyeurs" Mario
Vaerewijck & Marlon Waeghemans of Lowpass have found a new singer and guide
her into 11 "slick" popsongs with influences of triphop, drum'n'bass,
funk. You should know "Can't be wrong" (with the Kamikaze Freak Show-video).
Arno "Le European Cowboy" & "A
Poil Commercial" In his fiftieth year on this planet, Arno drops
two (almost identical) CD's. Despite a few sings of wear and tear, these are yet
again "vintage" Arno, so well worth checking out.
Arid "Little Things of Venom"
*** Group from Belsele - of all places - makes
a debut with heavenly singing & 10 wonderful songs. World class, quoi.
Axelle Red "Toujours Moi"
Long awaited third album of the girl from Hasselt that has single-handedly invaded
France & French territories.
A Group "Volume One". X-Legged
Sally goes pop & rock. Brilliant music unfortunately nobody's waiting for.
