2011 collection from the British Rock legends, released to coincide with the digitally remastered reissues of their entire studio catalog. Features their best known tracks including 'Comfortably Numb', 'Money', 'Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2' and more. The first single-disc Pink Floyd compilation to surface in 30 years – the last being A Collection of Great Dance Songs, released as a stopgap between The Wall and The Final Cut – A Foot in the Door: The Best of Pink Floyd has its share of idiosyncrasies, quirks evident right from the choice of the moody “Hey You” as the set’s opener.
A Kiss in the Dreamhouse is the fifth studio album by British rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released on 5 November 1982 by Polydor Records. The record marked a change of musical direction, as the group used strings for the first time and experimented in the studio. Guitarist John McGeoch played more instruments, including recorder and piano. For Julian Marszalek of The Quietus, the release proved the Banshees to be "one of the great British psychedelic bands" of the post-punk era. In August 2007, it was ranked No. 1 on Mojo magazine's list of the best albums of 1982.
The eighth studio album of this prog-rock supergroup feat. Andy Tillison, Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings), Theo Travis (Steven Wilson Band, Gong, Robert Fripp), Luke Machin (Maschine), and Morgan Ågren (Frank Zappa, Kaipa, Devin Townsend, Mats/Morgan Band) perfectly combines all elements of THE TANGENT’s sonic palette. While the album’s sub-title “The Music That Died Alone – Volume 2” alludes on their debut opus, musically references to Earth Wind & Fire, Isaac Hayes, Steely Dan and Tower Of Power melt with the band’s trademark “Canterbury in exile“ approach whereas the symphonic orchestration of its predecessor “Le Sacre du Travail” was abandoned in favour of a more traditionally rocking basis. The surreal artwork was created by Ed Unitsky.
A reissue of the complete original CD album, generously refurbished by the Swedish alternative rock label Transubstans Records, a subdivision of Record heaven. Great measures have been taken to make it an exact replica of the original album as delivered by APM in 1996, with only a few exceptions in the booklet itself and with everything in good order. Due to internal conflicts which have now been resolved, the album has been out of print for more than 10 years!
"Knocking at Your Back Door: The Best of Deep Purple in the 80's" is a compilation album by the British hard rock band Deep Purple. It is a compilation of tracks from three albums, Perfect Strangers (1984), The House of Blue Light (1987), and the live album Nobody's Perfect (1988). This best-of of eighties Deep Purple marks the return of the Mark II line-up, and what a return! Although purists will disagree with compilations such as this, it has to be said that weeding out the dross makes this a stunning disc. From the sheer exuberance of the title track, to the monumental re-working of 'Hush,' there is very little to dislike here.
While Pink Floyd may have broken up in 1996, the musical and visual concert experience of one of rock music's most iconic groups can still be experienced today through the musical prowess of Australian Pink Floyd. Their new special, "The Australian Pink Floyd Show: Live From The Hammersmith Apollo," premieres beginning August 2011. Australian Pink Floyd, the worldwide-touring tribute band, returns to public television with their most extravagant special to date.
