One day where I wouldn't feel my senses die
Where nothing made me hang my head and cry
One day where I could see myself as others do
Where I could feel the strength of love at hand

One day where I didn't die a thousand times
Where I could satisfy this life of mine
One day where every hour could be a joy to me
And live a life the way it's meant to be

One Small Day - Ultravox

"I believe that some art created by expressions of personal mind and thought, without the idea of real commercialism, and they could speak to you, help you to know and learn more about life,and becoming your friends....sometimes art is much more easier to understand than human itself..."

10 ALL TIME FAVOURITE ALBUMS :

DEPECHE MODE - VIOLATOR ...Much people will agree that this album was masterpiece..Focusing more in the mood and arrangements, the songs inside will keep your ear open as your soul  flow following the notes. It's dark, sentimental, gloomy and absolutely diamond. I would recommend Black Celebration to new listener as most influental album of Depeche Mode, which show us the transition from naive dancing pop song to the matured melodious synth driven music. But Violator will be the best album they created i suppose..

ULTRAVOX -  RAGE IN EDEN ...My first introduction to Ultravox is when in junior high school ,and it's embarassing,  i stole a compilation cassette from the drawer of my friend's brother which included Vienna inside of it ( I would like to say sorry and apologize to  him )...And this is their first track to my ear, a bit strange but amazed ...of course Vienna could be the most popular hits by Ultravox, but in Rage In Eden you will got the real characteristic Ultravox sound that mixed synthpop and electronics with more traditional rock instrumentation. The sound is more ambitious than Vienna, the lyrics and arrangements have the grandiose New Romantic, musicfolio wrote...Absolute brilliant masterpiece...and im not stealing it.. :)

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS - MIRROR MOVES ...I remember buy this album when i was junior high school and i keep it for long times, i dont really understand why i bought it in the first time...its kind instinct cause i know nothing about them, never heard them before, ... the reason maybe because i thought the names were cool  ...but after i listen, the tunes stay with me and help me through many days the voice of Richard Butler sounds desperately wonderful and get me hooked. From the opening romantic "Ghost In You, ..she didn't fade.." and beautiful " Heaven, is the whole of a heart.." this album is treasure..       

NEW ORDER - BROTHERHOOD....The touch of pop guitar mixed with synth line create a light atmosphere which make this album very special. The well famous "Bizarre Love Triangle" is not the only song that worth listening here even it's the wellknown hits..Every songs inside have their own strength which keep your ears and mind open, you  will also hear Bernard Summer laugh while singing in " Every Seconds Count " The lyrics eazy to catch but still meaningful ..... I would recommend this album as their greatest...just like the line of one song's here New Order is the band that " sing intellectual songs of love"..

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS - SELF TITTLED .. .Futuristic, melodic, and this is what i called music .. "I ran" is becoming their largest hits but you will find and explore  the beauty  inside all tracks here...Did I forget to mention " Hairstyle?" :)

THE CURE - DISINTEGRATION ...The beat and the mood that created here could take the listener pay attention from the first song untill the end. The ballad "Pictures Of You " could be the most romantic song they created. Nice album to listen when you fall in love or hope for it...

JOY DIVISION - UNKNOWN PLEASURE....This was Joy Division first full length album, Ian Curtis, the former , the singer and the writer is known as the most talented, visionary poet ever to grace the skimpy depths of pop which choose to end his life in tragic suicide. This becoming the most affecting and influential albums of their generation and the next.

YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA - BGM... I would like to compare YMO with Genious Band  Kraftwerk, When Kraftwerk release Autobahn and set a monumental movement for electronic music, this band could be inspired by them, but the touch of the music surely different, Ryuichi Sakamoto explore much more melodious note inside the music ...take example of rendering tone in " Cue" and the rhytm of  anthem "Technopolis". I would say this is the best band from Japan we could get this far..

SISTERS OF MERCY - FLOODLAND ..Some people said Floodland isn't quite goth, it isn't quite club, it isn't quite rock and i agree, Floodland is worth checking out even to people who normally aren't into this kind of moody, 'goth' kinda stuff. Within it's genre, it's regarded as a pioneering masterpiece, and it deserves every bit of it's praise.. Musicfolio wrote..

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS - THE BOATMAN'S CALL....No matter how life lets you down, you can always rest assured Nick Cave is having a lousier time than you. Or at least pretending to..Musicfolio wrote.. Some would like to call him a Gothic Elvis. Just like rest of his album this one offer you great ballad songs, minimalist sounds with piano, organ and guitar as the essential instruments, recurring themes of love, loss, God, and death. Started with grasping line .." ..I dont believe in intervention of God, but i know darling that you do..."

....And yes, there are many great musicians and many albums from various genre, and i cant recommend it all, those albums i wrote above are which i enjoyed to listen to ..every second of it....and before you get tired reading it i'll limit it just ten...

"Silently we went round and round,
And through each hollow mind
The Memory of dreadful things
Rushed like a dreadful wind,
And Horror stalked before each man,
And Terror crept behind."

THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL - OSCAR WILDE

"You can't change the world
But you can change the facts
And when you change the facts
You change points of view
If you change points of view
You may change a vote
And when you change a vote
You may change the world "

New Dress - Depeche Mode

 

"I've been waiting for a guide to come
and take me by the hand
Could these sensations make me feel
the pleasures of a normal man
New sensations bear the innocence -
leave them for another day
I've go the spirit, lose the feeling
take the shock away"
