This record is a solid mix of sort of alt-pop and jazz, with the unmistakable vocal over the top. The general praise for this album is well-deserved—it's earned a Grammy, sold more than five million copies, and is even in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die." For only $5, you can give it a listen today.
Whether it’s Cornell, Dylan, Cash, or Houston, when one of their songs comes on—wherever you are—you know it’s them and want to sing along. Today’s artist may not be the absolute household name like those above, but over 50 million albums sold worldwide, he’s definitely no slouch.
Stone Temple Pilots was such a solid act in that time and you can hear the talent Scott Weiland had not only in his vocal ability, but his songwriting. Perhaps it’s best showcased here on Purple, where the tracks are possibly a bit more subtle, instead of the huge rock effort put forth in their previous album. Give yourself a boost today with this one—for only $5 bucks; you’ll save a pretty penny.
Is it possible to be one of the more influential acts of the ‘90s while only releasing three records? Moreover, what if one of those albums came out posthumously after the lead singer’s tragic passing? The 17 million albums sold worldwide would say it is—and their cult following, in spite of breaking up nearly 20 years ago, seems to have cemented their legacy.
Contrast in style makes the music world go ‘round. For every Barry Manilow there is an offsetting Metallica out there. And while my last featured artist, Mariah Carey, is about as quintessential pop as it gets, this week’s highlighted band, well…isn’t. System of a Down has a heavy metal sound with the matching hard vocal—but if you can roll with that type of rock; this Grammy-nominated band is unlike any you’ve heard before.
If winning Grammys is a sign you’ve got musical chops, Don Henley’s got them. His sophomore solo effort, Building The Perfect Beast was an instant success, spawning three major singles and being critically regarded as the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of Henley’s career. He won one of his eight Grammys for the single “The Boys of Summer” on this album that you can score today for only $5.
Very few artists have displayed substantial longevity in the music business. Either due to band breakups, changes in sound, or the untimely demise of a band member, it’s rare for an act to see chart topping hits span multiple decades. Not the case for today’s artist. Having top-40 hits in the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s; he’s still going strong touring, writing and for some reason, manufacturing custom-made motorcycles.
You probably remember Macy Gray from her hit song, "I Try" but today's featured album is her sixth studio effort. "Covered," which you can probably guess, is an album of all covers. Covers are a much underutilized tool in the business today and Gray is able to take songs like “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica and turn it into a super funky, soulful track. Or a staple like “Creep” by Radiohead and make it sound nearly original. For $5, you can rediscover her unique vocal style and score a great album to boot.
Often referred to as the “yellow” or “orange” album because of the cover and liner notes, Days of New's debut was almost an instant success. Backed by lead single "Touch, Peel and Stand" which rose to #1 on the Billboard chart, the entire industry was taking notice. Band like Alice in Chains and Metallica were calling the label to book them as an opener for their world tours. You can get this album today for only $5.
