2015 and the unknown

In 2015, Distinctive Albums International is stepping into unknown waters and entering the world of blogging.

We thought that this would be a good way to communicate with you and the big wide world about what is involved in traditional book binding and album manufacturing. 65 more words


Bon Iver: For Emma, Forever Ago

It’s mostly just vocals and acoustic guitar, but there’s some other light instrumentation in some songs. Vocals seem to have something on them. Looping or reverb? 28 more words

Rod Stewart: Smiler

This album really isn’t that bad. Stewart looks ridiculous in the album cover, and “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Man” is dumb, but the rest of the songs really aren’t bad at all. 40 more words

Ike & Tina Turner: The Hunter

It’s not bad, but it doesn’t really do that much for me. The more I listen to those old Ike and Tina Turner albums, the more I start to wonder if they were really that awesome. 29 more words

The Faces: Ooh La La

A good album. The best song is a Ronnie Self song. The songs are all fairly short. Not many stand out beyond the title track, but I always enjoy them just fine. 13 more words

Rod Stewart: Never a Dull Moment

This one isn’t my favorite. “You Wear It Well” is an awesome song, but it’s still the only one that stands out to me. It’s also one of his shortest albums coming in at about 32 minutes. 18 more words

Black Sabbath: Sabotage

This one’s pretty good. Shows some development and added texture while still rocking. Alexis liked the weird instrumental. I liked most of it. It’s not as good as the first 2 albums, but it shows some growth. 6 more words
