Today, im gonna give to you a whole album. Thats right, 12 tracks for free. And 12 tracks you wont find that easily.
Aloud were Gregory Louis and Cyril Bodin. And when i say were, it means they unfortuantly broke up. Bodin is now a singer in a heavy-metal band, called Amen Birdman, of which Raw Man is also a part of.
Anyway, about the album. It had 2 major singles, Sex & Sun and Bob O'Lean. Sex & Sun became a club anthem of 2004, with remixes by Thin White Duke and Eric Prydz to go along.
Bob O'Lean also became quite known, and the fact that it had remixes by Armand Van Helden (which im searching) and Play Paul gave a hand.
Soon enough, they had an album released. But because it was released on a sister label of Ministry Of Sound, called Open (the album was actually the last release from that label) it never got any proper recognition.
From start to finish, this is an amazing album. This is actually one of the only albums in which i adore every single track.
Cyril's extremely deep vocals are present eveywhere, along with basslines, synths, pianos, guitars, the lot.
And despite its a house/synth-pop album, it can still have stuff like calm tracks, with violins and sounds of rain falling.
Despite, i can barely understand a thing that Cyril is singing (who can make lyrics of the tracks is my hero), his voice is incredibly beautiful and appealing.
There are no bad moments in this album. It is incredibly uplifting, cheerful, easy to listen and fantastic.
I give this album a 9.99/10. Why not just 10? because theres a small glitch in the intro to Sex & Sun Part II, which is only noticeable with headphones, but it can get annoying, so that is why.
Ill only put the flash player on some tracks, but download links will be available for all, plus a .rar, so you dont download the track 1 by 1.
