Wow, Sam Smith is out of the top ten! I didn’t think it would ever happen! As for Sia, after years of saying all she had in her was “Titanium”, her vocal on “Wolves” thrilled me and left my defenses down for this track off her last album.

Then, followed an avalanche of tweets criticizing the video and accusing it to promote pedophilia? Because Shia is 28 and Maddie only 12? But they hardly touch each other and when they do, it is done the way dancers do it, softly, gracefully

Guts Over Fear – Eminem And Sia – Sia was born to sing the hook on hip hop songs, she drags royal over her own stuff, “Chandelier” eas a true bore, but her voice adds gravity, here she has more power then Rihanna ever does, to rap songs – B+

By Iman Lababedi | July 31, 2014

Every week the US Albums charts is like this explosion of new albums, shooting stars, often gone he next week or the week after, while the singles charts is like water on stone, slowly slow slowly something cracks open the door. This week it is Sia, a song I don’t have much time for, but one thay has done the difficult, it has made its presence felt on the singles charts.

US Top 10 Albums 7-26-14

By Iman Lababedi | July 17, 2014

So 1000 Forms Of Fear in at # 1 even if only 54,000 units shifted, still a good number. Maybe I was wrong? Maybe I should listen to it again? So I did and this album is so full of it self it seems to swagger along in self-regard though its only saving grace is Sia’s voice and when that’s all there is, it begins to pull you under.

Somewhere In My Car – Keith Urban – Thumps a little hard for country rock and pops a little too much for country or rock, this is the sound of country music running down the drain and as spectacularly bad a song as “American Kids” if not worse – D+

Sneak Peaks: New Album Releases week of July 7th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | July 6, 2014

My feeling about Sia is something like, there isn’t an EDM track her tender, lush but very powerful voice can’t make better but without the dressing, her songs aren’t as strong as they need to be. But I could be wrong and so she gets the album of the week (round one). Industrial dance isn’t my scene but “Last Tangle In Paris” is the album title of the year.

The most misunderstood song of the 1980s but it isn’t the audiences fault, Bruce wrote a chorus which is about as huge an anthem as humanly possible: “Born in the USA, I’m a cool rocking daddy in the USA’ begs to become a national anthem and did. And his brother is still all gone – A+
