Mariah Carey claims Rainbow, her first album since divorcing Tommy Mottola, "chronicles my emotional roller coaster ride of the past year," but less subjective listeners could be forgiven for viewing it as simply another Mariah Carey album. After all, all the elements are in place – the crossover dance hits, the ballads, the cameos, the hip producers, the weird cover choice from the early '80s. But dig a little deeper, and her words ring true. Rainbow is the first Carey album where she's written personal lyrics, and allusions to her separation from Mottola are evident throughout the album, even if it doesn't really amount to the "story" she mentions in the liner notes…

Best-known as a Brazilian bebop trumpeter, Claudio Roditi actually made his recording debut as a leader on this obscure LP, a mixture of pop and jazz. Some of the songs feature the reasonably pleasing if not too substantial vocals of Kenia. Roditi and altoist Paquito D'Rivera get in some good solos on material written by Roditi, Ivan Lins, Edu Lobo, Deodato and Milton Nascimento. They are joined by a large rhythm section that includes Jorge Dalto on synthesizers and percussionist Nana Vasconcelos. The overall music is danceable and sometimes infectious, if not particularly memorable; a decent but somewhat commercial effort.

Pure is the eighth studio album by English neo-progressive rock group Pendragon. It was first released on October 1, 2008, on Toff Records. The overall reception of the album was very much positive. RevelationZ online magazine gave it a 7 out of 10 score and stressed "mainman - vocalist & guitarist - Nick Barrett's songs draw blood with razor sharp metaphors, often bleak but always human, cleverly broken up by melodic, muscular guitar and keyboard passages, set against a busy, but never intrusive background of whitenoise and special FX". Lords of Metal also paid attention to the album and noticed that "where Marillion drifted off of the ‘standard’ prog route Pendragon stayed steadily on course without repeating themselves", concluding with a 90/100 score…

Since this is a collection of ALL the Rush Greatest Hits, it ranks as one of the best albums they have made, but it is missing some rather important songs such as, "Xanadu" and some of the wonderful instrumentals like "Leave that thing alone" all in all it has the power guitar song "Temples Of Syrinx" and the classic "Limelight" along with the rest of the Rush songs you all want to hear.

Norah Jones took liberty with her blockbuster success to set out on a musical walkabout, spending a good portion of the decade following 2004's Feels Like Home experimenting, either on her own albums or on a variety of collaborations. Day Breaks, released four years after the atmospheric adult alternative pop of the Danger Mouse-produced Little Broken Hearts, finds Jones returning home to an extent: it, like her 2002 debut Come Away with Me, is a singer/songwriter album with roots in pop and jazz, divided between originals and sharply selected covers. Such similarities are immediately apparent, but Day Breaks is much slyer than a mere revival…
