Featured New Releases on the Music Unlimited Service
Evanescence - Evanescence
Fans were introduced to Amy Lee and company in 2006, through their hit Fallen, a breakaway success for a female-fronted band in a very male-dominated genre. Listeners resonated through the dark, brooding tone of the music with Lee's introspective and transparent lyric style.
After several years and a few adjustments, Lee was careful to maintain that personal relationship, reconsidering producers and creative sessions to be sure the band was in the right place to put together this dynamic self-titled album.

Recommended Track: "My Heart is Broken"
Bjork - Biophilia
From Icelandic ingenue in the Sugarcubes to Academy Award nominated actress, (who can forget the flamingo dress), to her latest solo release, Biophilia, Bjork has forged an identity, career and voice that is unique and incomparable. The background surrounding the creation of Biophilia is almost as interesting as the album itself. New instruments were created.
There is an app available for each track, which when played in sequence on an iPad becomes an interactive album. There is also an $800 cd set that comes with a set of tuning forks and a lacquered oak box.
Everything is an extension of the music however, and the Biophilia record is an ambitious album even for an artist who knows no boundaries. It may take a few listens to get your head around the album, but the effort will be rewarded.

Ryan Adams - Ashes & Fire
Before the release of his 2nd poetry collection, Hello Sunshine, in 2009, Ryan Adams spoke during a "Discussion on Poetry" at the New York Public Library. Known as a prolific artist, he was asked about finding inspiration between publishing books, writing music and even painting.
He coyly replied, "I'm just one of those people that you know I will take apart your VCR if you leave me in your house." Adams has shuffled through genres and external players, but this newest album strips down to the core of his solo style that has managed to flow seamlessly through several different iterations.
