"Woodstock Creative Magic" by Cliff Adam (Country/Pop artist from New York City, New York (NY))

"Woodstock Creative Magic" by the skillful Cliff Adam is an eclectic collection of country/pop tunes. Cliff's songwriting takes the center stage on this CD, with meaningful, thought-out lyrics, and hook-filled songs. Each song on this CD acts almost as separate entities, creating a unique life of its own. The music is solid and Cliff's vocals take on a variety of different styles. "I'll Be There" fits best into the easy-listening genre and demonstrates Cliff's passionate, Elvis-esque vocal tone. "Fashion Model Dream" incorporates beautiful string arrangements and tells the story of a little girl with a big dream. Creative production elements, such as the animal sounds on "Crystal Ship," make these songs extra special. Fans of Elvis Presley, Tim McGraw, and even Elton John will find songs that they can relate to on this delightful collection!

"Taking Chances" by Celine Dion (Easy-Listening/Pop artist from Las Vegas, Nevada (NV))

After three years away from the English recording scene, Celine Dion is back with her first single, "Taking Chances," from her highly anticipated November 2007 release. This mid-tempo, highly melodic, inspirational, exploding-chorus single offers up all the signature elements that have proven to produce hits for Celine in her almost two-decade-long music career. Perhaps refreshingly, "Taking Chances" elevates to a strong modern-rock sound during its climax. Although many fans do not look favorably on this latest release (because it is not her song, but a cover of Platinum Weird's song), Celine tackles this sure-to-be hit with her trademark multi-octave, passionate vocals. This single carves a solid path, many would hope, for Celine to make the transition from her blockbuster Vegas show to the tour bus! Celine fans, look out for the release of her new LP hitting stores this November!
