Soft Dogs is an album by Danish rock group D-A-D. The album was released on February 20, 2002. The album gained many favorable reviews, including six out of six stars by Danish music magazine Gaffa.
"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.
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.
"Helpyourselfish" is the 5th studio album from Danish rock band D-A-D. It was released on March 1, 1995 and is the follow-up album to the highly successful album Riskin' It All. It features a break from most D-A-D-albums, with a heavier sound. Having released a post-punk/cowpunk album, a punk rock album, a heavy metal albums, and a hard rock album, D-A-D turn to alternative metal on this album, obviously inspired by the grunge and alternative rock and metal waves of the time. "Helpyourselfish" is probably D-A-D's heaviest album and contains some of the bands, for my money, best works of their entire career.
"Riskin' It All" is the 4th full-length studio album by Danish hard rock act D:A:D, D-A-D (then D.A.D.). The album was released in October 1991 by Medley Records. "Riskin' It All" was meant to be D-A-D´s big breakthrough in America ( the band even changed their name from Disneyland After Dark to D.A.D. to avoid possible lawsuits from the Disney corporation. They changed it again later to D-A-D and the album was released in the USA through Warner Brothers. The music style on the album pretty much continue the heavy rock/ hard rock style the band started playing on the preceeding album "No Fuel Left for the Pilgrims (1989)" albeit with a bit more commercial sensibility.
No Fuel Left for the Pilgrims was an outstanding international debut from Danish rockers D:A:D, following two promising efforts on the European Mega label. Irresistible lead-off single "Sleeping My Day Away" combined a rhythm guitar straight out of the AC/DC handbook, spiced by melody lines performed with a country-ish, '50s-style guitar twang – a unique formula that the band successfully applied to other standouts like "Point of View" and "Lords of the Atlas." "Rim of Hell" is a stomping party anthem riding a monstrous, mid-paced groove, and the band also rocks out full-throttle on "Jihad," "True Believer," and the almost Metallica-heavy "Ill Will."
This is the 46th title in the Vivaldi Edition and the 4th volume, out of approximately 12, of the series dedicated to the violin concertos whose manuscripts are held in the National Library of Turin. All the concertos selected here were composed for, dedicated to or performed in front of Charles VI (1685-1740), sovereign of the Habsburg Empire, renowned as patron and passionate lover of music. This series of 7 concertos is an overview of the complete art of Vivaldi as a composer and violinist: large-scale music, invention, expression, energy, power of evocation, played with considerable virtuosity.
