The Story Begins...

I made a plan with Leo (my childhood buddy) earlier today to see the latest Disney flick, Wall-E.
Alrite, i have to admit that I am a Disney movie freak.
I've seen Wall-E already and I'm not over it yet.

We went to AEON Bukit Tinggi in Klang to avoid the bad ticket queue at Sunway Pyramid.
Too bad for us cuz it is the school holiday, same situation happened in Klang; BAD QUEUE!
Thank god, we managed to get the tickets :P

We wandered around the mall and I saw the latest album by Hujan.
Hujan dah keluar album!

And on the other section, I found the deluxe edition of Daft Punk Alive 2007 imported CD!

With the speed of the light, I withdrawed some cash and bought those 2 CDs.

I've took my time to have a listening pleasure to those albums and now, let me give you a review of'em. :D

1. Hujan - abcdefgHUJANopqrstuvwxyz

I've been waiting for the album to release. I think the album is just average because it's the re-production of their old tracks from the previous EPs. They only put one new track in their new baby called "Dugaannya". Ehem, it's my current favorite song. There is this one track titled "Rantai Rasa" (was known as "Rantai Rasa Cinta") which I did not like it because I prefer the older version. Same goes with "Pijak Hatiku" (or known as "Kau Pijak Hatiku Lagi"). Well, I don't know... I'm not a music expert but as a listener who has listened to the older version of Hujan tracks, I must say that I prefer the older version of the songs. The album also features the song from the Impak Maksima soundtrack titled "Jiwa Kelajuan".

As what I usually do, this will be the album that I'm gonna sing along while driving to college.

Rating: I give 3 / 5 --- for the great effort to come out with a new album with all famous track that they played in every gig, and downloaded ones over the Internet. The new production of the songs? Errr... I prefer the older version of some tracks.

2. Daft Punk - Alive 2007 Deluxe 2CD Edition

When I was in school (2001), I hate this french duo! Whenever the TV played "One More Time", I will change the channel immediately. Especially once the bell introduction... DONNGGGGGG!!!! *change channel*
But my perception to them has changed last year after I saw the live video on YouTube and I think these guys are pretty amazing... In the same year, Kanye sampled the song "Harder Better Faster Stronger" in his track "Stronger". Amazing!
What makes this album unique?
They mashed up 31 songs in 13 tracks. I think this album proves these guys are very creative.
FYI, this album is a live album.

Rating: I give 4.5 / 5 --- For the creativity. The 50 pages booklet is worth paying RM70 plus the live video of "Harder Better Faster Stronger". Minus 0.5 for not coming out with the live DVD of the concert.

Adli Syahril says: I've been searching high and low for Tiesto's live DVD... If anyone would want to sell it to me, please drop your comment! I need Tiesto - Elements of Life Copenhagen DVD!

The End
