Good The Bad And The Ugly
Bangla: Kinkortobbo Bimorho--Bangla has found its way
to the heart of Bangalis by mixing baul and lalon music with western
instruments the very first of its kind. It is one of Bangladesh's most
popular band and has fans in all parts of Bangladesh.
2. Black: Utshober Pore-- Alternative rock band Black's
first album was a huge success and this follow up second album was a
good successor. Although this album was not as good as their first,
the band still managed to keep its place by producing one of the best
albums this year.
3. Aurthohin: Dhrubo-- Aurthohin is a funk rock band,
which is known for experimenting with their instruments. Their single
"Guti from hell," for example, is composed with 200 bpm of
drumming, which makes it a unique speed method.
4. Produced by Shumon from Aurthohin: Agontuk 2-- It
is an album featuring a number of different bands. This is the first
time 13 new underground bands taken up by. The album features groups
such as Aurthohin, Nemesis, Cryptic Fate, Breach and Artcell.
5. Habib: Krishno- - Fusion
Warfaze: Moharaj-- Although Warfaze used to be quite
popular, their last album did not really live up to their standards,
which could be due to a change in band members. Their compositions and
lyrics are not adequate. Although they claim their album is a hit it
2. Tishma: Tara-- Known as the Britney Spears of Bangladesh,
Tishma's albums sell. However, somehow it is believed that, like Britney
Spears, her album was a success because of her steamy videos. Her lyrics
song compositions are mediocre
3. Subconscious: Matir Deho-- Known as a commercial
band that does not really have anything special going for them their
lyrics and compositions are ordinary.
4. Produced by Tone and Tune: Prothom Chitkar-- Unfortu-nately
for all the band featured in this compilation of a number of bands,
the production of this album was far from promising. The songs were
decent but were cut or destroyed halfway. Cheap production house, bad
5. Metal Maze: Ojana Odhyay-- This album is not up
to the mark, and not doing well while they are at it.
50 Cent: Get Rich or Die Tryin'-- Hip Hop artist 50
cent has busted through the charts with his hit single In Da Club. His
catchy beats and racey lyrics add to his popularity.
2. Beyonce: Dangerously in Love-- Destiny's Child's
dreamgirl Beyonce Knowles came out with her first hit album this year,
with hit singles Bonnie and Clyde and Crazy in Love, featuring artists
like Jay Z. Her soulful voice mixed with hip hop flavoured beats made
this album a hit.
3. Dido: Live for Rent-- Although Dido's most recent
album sounds very similar to her other ones she must be doing something
right. The first song on the track, White Flag is one of the more popular,
with her melodious voice and her powerful lyrics.
4. Evanescence: Fallen-- Alternative rock band Evanescence
came out with their second album this year, which has been selling like
hotcakes. One of the more popular is the song Bring Me to Life.
5. Asian Vibe: Body and Soul-- This two CD collection
is a mix of various artists of a Electronica, Asian Underground and
Drum and Bass. The CDs feature Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Massive Attack,
Nitin Sawhney, Punabi MC and Robert Miles.
Kylie: Body Language-- Although Kylie's last two comeback
albums were quite successful, this latest one, featuring songs like
Red Blooded Woman and I Feel for You, did not do as well. The songs
are ok, but nothing is overly new or unique about them. The five foot
wonder from Australia needs a new gimmick, it seems.
2. John Mayer: Heavier Things-- John Mayer has a good
voice, pretty good compositions, decent lyrics and even a unique and
different style. For some reason, however, his album is just not selling.
Sorry John, there is definitely, as you sang in this new album, "Something
3. Britney Spears: In the Zone-- Although her first
single "Me Against the Music," featuring pop diva Madonna
was a hit, people are not very satisfied with the pop princess' new
album. My question is were they ever and if so WHY?
4. Jennifer Lopez: Playin' it By Heart-- Nobody ever
said JLO was an amazing singer but at least her songs had snappy, upbeat
rhythms. Now they are just depressing and badly sung.Her new album,
with songs like Dear Ben, (apparently written for and to ex boyfriend
Ben Affleck), has disappointed her fans. Someone please tell her to
stop trying to be so deep.
5. Disturbed: The Sickness-- This metal band's name
and its album's title says it all. Somehow they perceive themselves
to be back in the 1980's, when screaming lead singers and toneless guitar
playing was the in-thing. The album is just noise and not much else
