Album of the Day: Various Artist – Paper Towns (Music from the Motion Picture)

Setelah sukses “The Fault In Our Stars”, lagi-lagi novel karya John Green diangkat menjadi sebuah film layar lebar. Kali ini giliran “Paper Town”, yang dibintangi oleh Cara Delevingne dan Nat Wolff. Mengingat ini film tentang remaja, tentunya tak terlepas dari sebuah album soundtrack yang mewakili semangat filmnya. Dan sebagaimana “TFOS”, album “Paper Towns (Music from the Motion Picture)” juga diisi oleh banyak musisi yang menghadirkan lagu-lagu yang menghadirkan nuansa remaja tadi. Hanya saja, alih-alih bubblegum pop, “Paper Town” justru terdengar agak “hipster”, tentu saja dalam arti yang positif. Pilihan music directornya untuk menghadirkan musisi-musisi yang sebagian besar berasal dari ranah

Album of the Month: Adam Lambert – The Original High

Mengingat perjuangannya untuk mempertahankan ide original di album studio ketiga, “The Original High” sudah seharusnya menjadi the dream album bagi Adam Lambert. Ia sampai rela melepas kontrak rekaman dari RCA dan mencari-cari label mana yang mau menggandengnya. Datanglah Warner Bros. yang mengamini segala harap Adam hingga akhirnya mengabulkan asa tersebut untuk membentuk sebuah album berisikan 11 track yang menggandeng Max Martin bersama Shellback sebagai produsernya. Dream team? Sure. Alkisah, kedua orang inilah yang mengakibatkan nama Adam tercatat sebagai salah seorang unggulan Grammy. Besar harapan kalau Adam akan pulang kampung ke penghargaan musik paling bergengsi di dunia tersebut. Namun, mereka dalam

Album of the Day: Hardwell – Hardwell Presents Revealed, Vol. 6

Setelah diluncurkan kali pertama di tahun 2010, Hardwell dengan rutin merilis album seri “Revealed”-nya dan tahun ini bukan pengecualian.

Dan karena merupakan album yang dirilis di tahun 2015, maka “Hardwell Presents Revelased, Vol. 6″ bisa dikatakan juga sebagai sebuah album kompilasi hits yang cukup komprehensif, karena

Album of the Day: Brandon Flowers – The Desired Effect

Setelah bertahun-tahun, “The Desired Effect” jadi upaya paling berhasil Brandon Flowers mengembalikan sound 80s ke dunia mainstream. Sejak pertama kali menggebrak dunia melalui album perdana The Killers, “Hot Fuss”, semua orang tahu betapa obsesifnya Flowers akan image superstar glam yang pernah jadi panduan gaya anak muda seluruh dunia. Lewat The Killers, Flowers bermimpi menjadi Simon LeBon era modern. Dengan make up mencolok dan dandanan extravagant. Semangat ini dibawa Flowers juga dari cara menyanyinya yang anthemik dan liriknya yang penuh hiperbola tentang pelacur, dunia malam dan sakit hati. Hanya saja, di album solo keduanya ini, dibantu produser Ariel Rechtsaid lah obsesinya

X Factor US Top 6 – The Unplugged & Pepsi Challenge

Minggu ini, 6 finalist tersisa akan membawakan masing-masing 2 lagu, yang pertama adalah versi unplugged (akustik) dan juga Pepsi Challenge, dimana para fans bisa vote untuk memilih lagu mana yang dibawakan oleh para finalis.

1. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adults – “Edge Of Glory” by Lady Gaga
Penampilan pertama CeCe di babak ini cukup bagus.
LA: “Sometimes we get it wrong. I’m starting to become a fan.”
Britney: “At this point in the competition it should be great, it was just good.”
Simon: “I don’t think you are worth the 5 million dollar contract. It was a little too cabaret for me.”
Demi: “I think this was one of your best performances.”

2. Emblem3- Simon Cowell – Groups – “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
Mereka cukup berhasil membawakan dengan versi akustik lagu ini.
LA: “That was pretty good. At least one of Simon’s groups can sing harmony.”
Britney: says, “This has been your best performance in the competition.”
Demi: “You guys did great, it wasn’t the best. I feel like it’s a downgraded version of the Jonas bros 5 years ago.”
Simon: “The pressure to deliver what they just did, you did amazingly well.”

3. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “As Long As You Love Me” by Justin Bieber
Boleh dibilang lagu ini terdengar lebih baik daripada versi aslinya, dan terasa beda.
LA: “I love you so much! You showed some restraint. That was maybe your best for my taste.”
Demi: “You sang it better than Justin did. You remind me so much of Jo Jo.”
Simon: “This is why I love working in this country. I’m seeing a star emerge week after week. You’re actually very cool, you really are. One of my favorite performances.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. Each week, you make the song your own”

4. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele
Penampilan mereka makin membaik tiap minggu, harmonisasi juga semakin terasah.
LA: “I still didn’t hear any harmony. You should be named Fifth Unison”
Britney: “I’m trying to figure out what separates you from the other girl groups.”
Demi: “I feel like there’s a couple of you that should just be solo artists.”
Simon: “That was really unfair criticism, LA. They have worked on their harmonies. I think they deserve a shot in the semi-final next week.”

5. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – “It’s a Man’s World”
Kita tidak melihat adanya ‘unplugged’ dibawakan dilagu ini, bagus sih, hanya saja terdengar seperti ‘full band’.
LA: “That was really different for you. This week, you brought attitude. You sang your butt off.”
Demi: “It was risky singing a song you’ve done before, but it paid off.”
Simon: “It was a little bit screechy in parts, you made up for it in the end. I wish you had chosen a different song.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. You not only nailed it, you destroyed it.”

6. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi
Pembawaan Tate di lagu ini cukup bagus.
Britney: “I feel like you’re getting away from what you do best, down the middle country.”
Demi: “I’m a fan of you. I will be buying your album one day. This performance was a little boring and you skipped out on the high note.”
Simon: “It’s like taking a goldfish for a walk. You have to choose the material. I like it when you choose the material. Not a great song choice.”
LA: “I love the song. You did a really good job with the song. You’re finally doing something for yourself. Your family stands behind you, and I stand behind you.”

Babak kedua: Pepsi Challenge:

7. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adult – “Part of Me” by Katy Perry
OK, CeCe Frey kembali ke tampilan semula dengan tattoo Leopard di wajahnya, soal penampilannya? Sayang, agak kacau dan dia terdengar seperti berteriak-teriak dibagian verse.
LA: “Not loving it. That was karaoke.
Britney : “I found it very entertaining. I loved it.”
Simon: “I liked the way you were defiant all the way through the performance. If you do go, I’m going to miss you.”
Demi: “if the princess of pop says you were good, then I’ll take it from her,”

8. Emblem3 – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan
Penampilan mereka terdengar lebih baik dari yang pertama.
LA: “Tonight you nailed it.”
Britney: “I thought it was a superstar performance.”
Demi: “I am a fan. I just want to see you command the stage more. Much better than your first performance.”
Simon: “That is a silly criticism. I think you’ve been really good tonight. Emblem 3 has landed.”
Perseteruan Simon vs Demi semakin memanas, dimana mereka terkadang merebut mic dan saling memotong komen masing-masing.

9. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce
Carly terdengar seperti profesional menyanyikan lagu ini.
LA: “You never let me down.”
Demi: “That’s a phenomenal vocal. I do want to hear something uptempo.”
Simon: “Don’t listen to a single word this one has said.”

10. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Give Your Heart a Break” by Demi Lovato
Akhirnya Fifth Harmony memberikan penampilan terbaik mereka selama di X Factor US ini.
LA: “I actually hear harmonies. That was your very very best performance”
Britney: “A friend of mine sings this song good, and so do you.”
Demi: “I think this song should have been your song. You sing it better than the original. It was energetic, fun. Simon did a good job this week.”
Simon: “The show would not be the same without you,”

11. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – Diamonds by Rihanna
Namanya sesuai dengan judul lagu yang dibawakan, dan Diamond pun turun dari langit2 panggung dengan kursi yang berbentuk ‘berlian’. Sayang versi lagu yang dibawakannya kurang pas.
LA: “I really like you, I really like that song, unfortunately I didn’t love your rendition of it.”
Demi: “I feel like you definitely did it justice.”
Simon: “Everybody is being really strong tonight. The second half was better than the first. Overall, I think you’ve had a good night.”
Britney; “I feel like this song was made for you.”

12. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – “If Tomorrow Never Comes” by Garth Brooks
Tate is in his element! Dengan membawakan lagu yang pas di genrenya, Tate bersinar!
Britney: “That felt like a Tate Stevens performance.”
Demi: “I got a little sleep on that performance, but you have a huge future ahead of you.”
Simon: “Welcome back to the competition. YOu remind me of Garth Brooks. I’m happy you’ve come this far. You don’t put an age cap on talent. We are going to see you next week 100%”
LA: “If there is any truth that you were straying away from your roots, America brought you back. That was great.”

Result Show:
Minggu ini ada Melanie Amaro, pemenang X Factor US season 1 membawakan lagu barunya “Long Distance’, sedangkan debut albumnya diperkirakan akan rilis awal tahun depan.
