During the final years of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) created the monumental body of music that can be considered his “Testament”, comprising the Musical Offering, the Art of Fugue and the B minor Mass. This latter work is a perfect synthesis of all his skill and flair in the art of composition (and essentially in that of counterpoint), as well as his gift for invention and his extraordinary sense of form, structure and number.

Scare Yourself Alive is the third live album by the Danish rock group D-A-D. The album was released on May 1, 2006. The album also contains a DVD with recordings of a concert at Roskilde Festival 2005 and a concert from KB Hallen in Copenhagen in 2005.
"Scare Yourself" has gained a little more rocking feel and some more guitar than previous albums, but it's not much. Sonne is a good drummer, but the drums were never really an important part of D-A-D's music. It's still good to hear something besides slave rhythms. The group's ninth studio album, "Scare Yourself" topped the album chart in Denmark upon its release in May 2005.

Psychopatico is the second live album by the Danish rock group D-A-D, and the first to be published outside of Japan. The album was released on November 20, 1998. The recordings on the double album was made during the Mad Days Tour in the same year. At the Danish Grammy Awards 1999 the album was elected Danish Rock Album of the Year. Psychopatico contains a studio recording of the new track, "Jacketless in December" which was released as the first single of the album.
Danish rockers D:A:D decided to tone things down a bit for 1997's Simpatico, doing away with the overtly metallic riffing of predecessor Helpyourselfish to strike a surprisingly jangly alterna-rock chord instead. Jacob Binzer's dreamy, '50s-styled guitar is back to the forefront, providing new textures and nuances to the group's sound, which had grown quite predictable of late, even as it retained its overall high standards.
Less than underscoring D:A:D's admirable songwriting chops during this, the first decade of their career, the cheekily titled Good Clean Family Entertainment You Can Trust – Milestone Material 85-95 winds up revealing their stylistic inconsistency from record to record. While this certainly speaks volumes about the Danish cowpunkers' versatility, it's hardly the stuff that long-lasting careers – much less loyal fan bases – are made of.
