I thought it was time for another Sunday review. First up comes Memphis Blues from Cyndi Lauper. It’s quite a departure from the Cyndi that I know, with Cyndi exploring the Blues style with great success. Granted I don’t know a bunch about Blues but it sounds good to me. It’s the kind of album you put on for a cool bunch of friends and a great dinner party.
Friday night saw me visit the wilds of suburbia to catch up with friends for dinner and DVD. Shutter Island was that DVD. So bad was that DVD that we never got to the end. Green screen effects were bad, story wasn’t that interesting and we just didn’t care.
Kylie has a new number 1 album on her hands here in Australia with Aphrodite hitting number 1 on iTunes on it’s first day of release. Now, some might say that Kylie could burp our national anthem and I’d buy it, the remixes and scour the internet for bootleg b-sides and they might be right. This album took a couple of listens to really take hold on me but I haven’t been able to write a review because it’s had me dancing with my hands in the air like I just don’t care. I love it. Closer and Aphrodite are my absolute favourites. Life is good when Kylie is releasing new music!
