Review On Kesha’s New Video – “Your Love Is My Drug”

The new Kesha’s video “Your Love Is My Drug”, well, I think we waited for something better, but what I have to recognize is Kesha’s original creativity and finally not trying to copy to other female artists in the industry right now. The video is very psychodelic just a Kesha said it would be, but the best part of the video is the body-painting part, looks very interesting, is the video great? No, but it’s different, and very simple, but sometimes simple is better.

Well, this the lastest update of the Billboard’s Hot 100, and what we can see here is Usher claiming the top spot for this week with Will.i.am after jumping from #6 to #1 (and damn! I know last week I said it was saying goodbye to the top!). Another high peak this week was Jay-Z finally making it into the top ten with “Young Forever” from his successful album “The Blueprint 3”. Like I said, Lady GaGa, Adam Lambert and Kesha are saying goodbye with “Telephone”, “TiK ToK” and “Whataya Want From Me”, but rising with “Alejandro” and “Your Love Is My Drug” (and still we’re waiting for the videos). But the most impressive thing here is Lady Antebellum’s single “Need You Now” staying for 11 months on the chart and currently peaking at #5. (And hell, I haven’t heard this song yet!)

Review On AC/DC’s Compilation Soundtrack – “Iron Man 2”

Posted in movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , on May 1, 2010 by KammusiK

(ALL MUSIC.COM  REVIEW)

AC/DC remain reluctant to anthologize their music in anything resembling a greatest-hits collection, but they’re perfectly willing to repackage those old tunes as soundtracks, whether it’s in the form of Who Made Who for Stephen King’s sleazo exploitation Maximum Overdrive, or in the mega-blockbuster Iron Man 2. Who Made Who had an appealing, low-rent quality but Iron Man 2 is jacked-up and juiced-up, with all the airbrushed abs disguising what is a pretty anemic collection of oft-played AC/DC staples. A bunch of biggies are here — “Back in Black,” “If You Want Blood (Youv’e Got It),” “Let There Be Rock,” “Highway to Hell,” “T.N.T.” — but just as many are missing, replaced by aggro album tracks. Macho is the name of the game here, with all the band’s cheerfully dirty ditties — “Big Balls,” “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” etc — being kept by the wayside, which does make sense for a soundtrack for a film that favors explosions over Scarlett Johansson in form-fitting leather. And so be it — this is good guts-and-guitar music, its only flaw being that it plays it totally safe…unless you stop to consider that it might be a bit of a risk to pitch a collection of 30-year-old music to the teenage audience of Iron Man 2.

Stand-out Tracks: “Shoot To Thrill”, “Back In Black”, “If You Want Blood”, “Let There Be Rock”, “Highway To Hell”

Total Score: 2.5/5 = Almost Good

It is too long!
