This is, in my opinion, the most beautifully written album of all time.
The songs just draw on so many emotions. Buckley's lyrics just seem so universal. I would have to say that he is one of my biggest influences in songwriting.
· Beck Sea Change
This is just a sad, sad album, but the instrumentation is brilliant. The narcoleptic delivery of Indian instrumentation throughout the album gives a very unique and dreamy feel. While it's not an upbeat album, it doesn't put me to sleep either.
· Tangerine Songs for the Now and Others Forever
This is an up-and-coming band from Pittsburgh that we had the distinct pleasure of hosting in Cincinnati last month. And since I bought a copy of their album I can't get enough of it. If you ever get a chance to see Tangerine play, I recommend that you take it. I really believe that they will do something great.
· Damien Rice O
This album just seems to be so inspired; to me, it's inspirational. It is very simple music but, with the cello and backing vocals, you would never know it. I can't say enough about Damien Rice.
· Frank Sinatra Duets
This is like a greatest hits album, except he sings back and forth with other great singers, including Tony Bennett and Bono. These are the songs that will linger forever.
DIGAMMI (digammi.com) performs Friday at The Colony Theatre in Hillsboro.
