The Velvet Crush, ďSoft Sounds,Ē Action Musik. While I canít say I actively dislike this record, I canít say I actively like it, either. Itís pleasant, melodic pop with an emphasis on slow rhythms, tight harmonies, and light instrumental backing. Yeah, itís well done, but itís only occasionally engaging.

The Congos, ďHeart of the Congos,Ē Blood and Fire Records. There are many, many good reggae records in the world. There are even quite a few stone classics. There are very few that can be considered absolutely, exquisitely perfect. This is one of them. The riddims are vibrant, bubbly, and yet dark and deep and mysterious. The vocals slide around the beats, ride the waves of the instruments, and harmonize sinuously. And everything is washed in beatific reverberation.
