Audiophile: There is almost no other group that prides themselves more on wasting good money on utterly worthless ****, and then trying to furiously blow smoke up their own ass to justify it.

Free your mind...and your ass will follow.

I don't understand. If you just go by the album covers, it's like she's based her whole career on her appeal to a bunch of lonely old farts with too much money and too little taste.

Looking forward to this due later this month.  Judging by the previews on YouTube this could be Beth's best work yet.

Interestingly, the overwhelming majority of Amazon reviews state that Diana's latest album is crap and best avoided.  Why am I not surprised...

So normally new music sinks I quite quick with me... and ive had this album for almost a week now... and three songs are making sense (relatively to the rest) ... and I'm taking longer and longer warming up to her new style of music.

Ill report back in a few days....

Yes. And? ;)

This should be interesting, nice song selection and Red has the voice, but I've no idea how he's going to cover Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood...

Judging from the variety of styles available since the Nina Simone original, it couldbe anything. It certainly won't be like the Joe Cocker one, which is brilliant (wonder how The crazy world of Arthur Brown did it....):

The Moody Blues, Elvis Costello, Cyndi Lauper, Arthur Brown, Cutting Crew, Place of Skulls, Uthanda, Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger, Mike Batt, Trevor Rabin, Dwight Adams, No Mercy, Alabina (retitled "Lolole"), John Legend, King Kong & D'Jungle Girls, Lou Rawls, Gary Moore, Robben Ford, OffBeat, Kellylee Evans, Julian Thome, Ray Darwin, Dolapdere Big Gang, New Buffalo, Farhad Mehrad, The Killers, Ulli Bögershausen, the Doug Anthony All S tars, Lyambiko, The Lucky Devils, Di'Anno, Strangefruit, Savage Circus, and Place of Skulls.

In their 1980s concerts, Dire Straits played the central theme of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" during an instrumental introduction to their "Tunnel of Love", as Mark Knopfler talked about The Animals' hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne, in whose Spanish City that song is set.

Rapper Common's "Misunderstood" sampled Nina Simone's original version for his 2007 album Finding Forever. The song was also sampled for the 2008 Lil Wayne album Tha Carter III, in the song "DontGetIt" and it was performed by Leona Lewis on the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards during a Lil Wayne performance. It has also been remixed by Granite & Sugarman for Nicola Fasano.
