EAC Rip | FLAC (Tracks) +CUE, LOG | 846 MB | Scans
Genre: Soul, R&B, Dance | Label: Arista / BMG Japan | Catalog Number: BVCM-31030

The Definitive Collection covers most of Angela Bofill's best-known singles and album tracks, including "I Try," "This Time I'll Be Sweeter," "Angel of the Night," and "Let Me Be the One." This collection also includes several worthwhile songs that didn't make it onto her previous retrospective, The Best of Angela Bofill, such as "Too Tough," "Baby I Need Your Love," "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," and "Can't Slow Down." As with the other collection, the emphasis is still on Bofill's earliest work; while she did indeed record many of her definitive songs during that time, some tracks from her more recent albums would have been a welcome addition for completeness' sake. Even though this compilation still isn't a total look at Bofill's artistry, The Definitive Collection does offer the most comprehensive look at her work available.

VA - Nu Electro Volume 1 (2009)
EAC Rip | FLAC (Tracks) +CUE, LOG | 950 MB | Scans
Genre: Freestyle, Electro, Breakbeat | Label: Street Sounds | Catalog Number: SSNECD 001

Nu Electro proves is that electro is still beating strong thanks to both old school originators like Egyptian Lover and Newcleus, and a new generation such as Invisible Rockers Crew and Dark Vektor. Not to mention the fact that it s now spread far beyond its American strongholds in New York and Detroit, with the latter two producers hailing from Athens and Barcelona respectively. Covering 2 CDs mixed by Freddy Fresh and Diplomat, it also represents electro in its most purist form with almost every track from The B Boys You Know We Rock to Supreme.Ja s Freak constructed from the same core elements of 808s, brittle beats and robotic voices and a complete disregard for any electroclash or electro-house affectations that have subsequently diluted the sound. True, electro no longer sounds as shockingly futuristic as it once did, but nor is it as creaky as an old breakdancer s joints when they try their knee drops again.

Collaborations actually rounds up many of the guest appearances Scott has made on other artists' songs throughout the past several years, and it's more like a stopgap release – like the live album that followed her debut – between her second and third studio albums. This could be irritating for the fans who tracked down each of the 14 sources from which the disc pulls, but it's certainly more helpful than not, and the material isn't so diverse that the whole thing can't be considered an alternate Scott album with almost as much value as Who Is Jill Scott? or Beautifully Human. There's a reason why these artists (or, in some cases, the artists' handlers) sought Scott out. Her versatile voice always carries a confident serenity, and she never shows up just to collect a check.

Though the Fugees had been wildly successful, and Lauryn Hill had been widely recognized as a key to their popularity, few were prepared for her stunning debut. The social heart of the group and its most talented performer, she tailored The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill not as a crossover record but as a collection of overtly personal and political statements; nevertheless, it rocketed to the top of the album charts and made her a superstar.
