So as you may know Kanye West's upcoming album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy comes out November 22nd. However, about a week ago this album was leaked on the internet. It was the clean version of the album. Many of you may know that I am not a big backer of Mr. West. Through everything he has done, I just have not been impressed. However, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is an AMAZING album. The other feature artists (Rihanna, Kid Cudi, Raekwon, Jay-Z, Pusha-T, etc.) on this album are incredible. The beats to most of these songs are incredible as well. The thing that impresses me most though, is the difference in sound of almost every song. Blame Game sounds like an R&B song and Gorgeous has an alternative rock type of feel. This album was well produced and I believe that it will be a top seller for a while. The only downfall I see right now, is that some of the songs were songs that he released on G.O.O.D. Fridays. Overall, this album gets a 9/10.

And just like that, Monday became a whole lot better. This morning Pittsburgh artist Gregg Gillis (more commonly known as Girl Talk), unleashed his newest album All Day, for free download from his label Illegal Art. If you've heard anything from Girl Talk before, you know what to expect. If you haven't, just click the link below.
Welsh songstress Ellie Goulding lends her soft, delicate voice to the Sir Elton John classic. Ellie really made the song her own, while still retaining the overall atmosphere of the original. This song will be available on the re-release of her excellent debut Lights, titled Bright Lights. Out November 23rd.
Chiddy Bang has made a career out of taking popular (and not so popular), indie rock tunes, totally reworking them, and then rapping over them. This time they take The Knocks' "Dancing with the DJ," and add a little something extra. Another ridiculous remix.
There were too many artists on it to fit in the title bar, so here: Tony Williams, The Dream, Rihanna, Charlie Wilson, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Elly Jackson, Ryan Leslie, Alicia Keys, and Sir Elton John. Wow. This version is probably a bit different than the album version, but it at least gives us a taste of this MONSTER track. MBDTF out Nov. 22nd.
This album/song/group are kinda old (by today's standards), but I've recently become intrigued with them, especially this song. Salem is often described as a southern gothic/electronic/drag/etherial wave band, which may not make much sense to those who have not listened to them. In any event, this song did not resonate much with me at first. That is until I heard the sample. It sample's a choral rendition of "O, Holy Night," and it works to perfection. It seems odd that the combination of purely grating bass and synths would seamlessly combine with one of the most beautiful Christmas songs, but it does.
